Sharing all things lovely
in fashion, interiors, & WELL BEING,
while trying to live life a bit more sustainably. 

bonjour! i'm mary:
welcome to my blog.

Progress on our home, eight months in It’s been a while since I’ve really shared what our home looks like, so I thought it was high time to share the progress we’ve made in making it our own, new ideas on what we’d like to see done, and our next steps. So here we go! […]

Our Home: An Update

February 1, 2019

  Skincare is a finicky thing. Way back when I had braces and started breaking out, I quickly learned that skincare was a commitment and not having a proper face care regimen would lead to dire consequences…because I have sensitive, combination/oily, blemish-prone skin. Thanks mom! I’ve had a long journey to find what works relatively […]

My Skincare Routine

January 9, 2019

Hello friends! Pardon all the radio silence here and on Instagram: I’ve been taking on more work at my new job than I first anticipated (which is a great thing, I genuinely LOVE my new job as an interior designer and brand team leader at Room and Board) and have been working long days where […]

Millay’s Holiday Gift Guide

December 12, 2018

(Room above by Heidi Caillier Design) As hinted over on my Instagram stories, I had the brilliant idea for a new little series over here.

Secondhand Home Finds: A New Series

November 7, 2018

If you have been following my style journey for a while now, you know that I am a vocal advocate of not only supporting ethical and sustainable makers and products, but also eliminating the use of synthetics in your wardrobe. Anytime I’m making a new purchase, I dig around the inside of the garment, find […]

New Arrivals in Millay Market!

October 29, 2018

Have you all heard of Lulu and Georgia? It’s a name most interior designers know, but isn’t quite mainstream enough that everyone knows of them. As you know, I’m slowly putting our home together, and after moving from Philadelphia to this new place of ours in Boston with very little in tow furniture and decor […]

Millay Market is Live!

October 2, 2018

photo by Anna Potter Isn’t this photo beautiful—melancholy, droopy, dark, and beautiful? K good, harness that feeling, hold on to it tight while I prepare you for the next movie you need to see and the abundance of tears it will conjure. Amazon Studios was kind enough to invite me to a special preview showing […]

The One Where I Wept for an Hour Straight: A review of Life Itself

September 21, 2018

  center image source As an entrepreneur, I’ve spent the past several years mastering how to juggle many jobs and tasks at once. If I’m being honest, this wrangling act of taking on a lot has always been my M.O.  In high school and college, I was the one constantly raising my hand to lead […]
