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.

The struggle is always real trying to fight the urge to go out to eat or to grab take out on the way home from work versus actually cooking something fresh at home. You’re tired and you only know like four easy recipes, all of which you are sick of. And by “you” I mean […]

Three Pinterest Meals I Tried and Loved!

March 19, 2019

I’ve been mulling over this decision and tossing over how to write this post for some time now…and what I’ve concluded is that I just need to stop searching for the perfect words, or event, or time and just rip the band aid. So here it is: I’m closing Millay Market. Closing the physical storefront […]

Let’s Make it Official: Saying Goodbye

February 12, 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

vintage large maple bowl After a little bit of anticipation and some much needed time to get settled, to figure out a schedule that works for me, and to get everything set up, our new shop Millay Market is now live! (The “Market” tab at the top of this site will also take ya there!) […]

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 […]

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

September 17, 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 […]
