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.

  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 […]

How I Stay on Task (Plus a Giveaway!)—CLOSED GIVEAWAY

September 17, 2018

  Something I’d really like to explore on this blog is sustainable and ethically made fashion. For most of us, how we dress ourselves is a nice luxury, and I feel strongly that if I’m going to take advantage of the priviledge of buying “pretty” things to wear, I want to make sure no one […]

Bonjour friends! As I mentioned in my last post, we’re ready to get rolling with real progress in our living room space. First up? Getting a couch. But the question remains: sofa or sectional? The dilemma is real… Since our living room and kitchen space is essentially one open floor plan, I want to be […]

Our Home: Sofas vs Chaise Sectionals

August 28, 2018

It’s been a little while since I’ve checked in about plans for our home, but now that it’s been a couple months since we moved in, it’s time to really get planning. And I AM SO READY! Despite trying to purge most of our things prior to moving, there was still a lot to Craigslist […]

Our Home: Living Room Plans

August 20, 2018

I’ve been intimidated to write this post. I had every intention of having this finished by Monday, but nerves kept stopping me. Every time I tried, I conveniently found eighty other things that all of a sudden had to be done immediately. But I really wanted address the question of why I don’t want to […]

Why I Don’t Want a Brick and Mortar

August 1, 2018

Where I’ve been. If ones twenties are for forging ahead in adventure, for putting yourself out there and going at life with an almost reckless abandon, then I think I’ve succeeded. I worked abroad right out of college. I left my home in the south to explore an academic career in the cold and fast-paced […]

A New Chapter for Millay

July 26, 2018

The week before we packed our bags in Philly and moved here to Boston, we snuck away to one of our favorite places in Pennsylvania: Longwood Gardens. We had met a lovely photographer at a grand opening party for CB2 a few months before, and she mentioned she was hoping to expand her photography portfolio […]

Anniversary Photos

July 6, 2018

When my best friend (and über talented interior designer) asked me for some recent advice on a good throw blanket for her living room, I was more than happy to snoop around and window shop to satiate my own intense desire to buyall the things for my own home. And of course, I’m always flattered […]

Favorite Summer Throws

July 6, 2018

We’ve now been in our new home about a month. All the boxes are unpacked and our objects have been assigned their respective places, but there’s also a lot of sparseness around here (which I far prefer to clutter, so I’m not complaining). I sold most of our furniture and major accents before moving, and  the […]

Bedroom Plans: Serenity Now

July 6, 2018

If you follow me on Instagram, then you know we recently moved back to Boston into our first place as actual homeowners. While the house hunting process probably deserves a post in itself, suffice it to say that it was a crazy whirlwind. And while I don’t have experience searching in other cities since we’ve […]
