8 Healthy Salads to Savor this Summer

With my upcoming trip to Paris this week (!!!), I’ve been nonstop daydreaming about croissants and macarons. I do not plan on holding back whatsoever while I’m over there as far as the food is concerned. Which means… Salads are in my not-so-distant future. I’ll be dreaming of the croissants for now and I’ll pin…


An Album, Two Shows, and a Documentary

AN ALBUM Two words: HARRY STYLES. I was never really on the One Direction bandwagon. I liked some of their songs, and I’ve enjoyed Zayn’s recent music. However, Harry Styles y’all. There are no words to describe how in love I am with his new solo album. I had heard his song on the radio a…


Recent Purchases

I’ve been doing a little too much shopping as of late. I blame it on my excitement about upcoming trips. I’m kind of freaking out with how much travel I’ve scheduled for myself, but also… I’m pumped because everything is going to be great. I’m in Baltimore this weekend for the Preakness Stakes, then Paris next week, then DC for my five-year college reunion (how?!), and then a quick jaunt to Nantucket.

Today I thought I’d share some of the top things I’ve purchased recently and already LOVE.


On My Radar

I typically go whenever I find last-minute cheap flights. (Thank goodness for JetBlue’s direct flights from Westchester to Tampa!!!!) I really wanted to be there for Mother’s…



Going out of state for college was one of the toughest things I’ve ever done. To be honest, I only considered out of state schools. The only big state school I considered at all was UVA, and no school in Florida really spoke to me. (I think a lot of people who read my blog…


Kate Spade Surprise Sale

Sharing the Kate Spade surprise sale that just started. They pop up every month or so, but this one is great timing for graduation gifts and summer internships and first jobs!


Gingham Galore

Nordstrom just started carrying Draper James (and some exclusive pieces!). I promptly added this gingham dress to my cart!


One Thing We All Need to Get Better At

You know how sometimes when you’re talking with a friend, you get the feeling that they’re a little distracted and not truly listening? It doesn’t feel good. But you can also feel yourself feeling distracted or not fully engaged when trying to listen to a friend. I know I’ve been on both ends of that and…
