Cold Weather

Warm Shoes!

This weekend was a winter wonderland. I had no idea it was supposed to snow beyond a few flurries. My friend was coming out to Connecticut for the day and needless to say, our plans were put on the backburner. I couldn’t believe how much snow we got! I was so thankful for my Subaru– it drives so well in the snow. We quickly made the decision to get off the roads and go home.


Goals for the Year

I’ve been thinking a lot about the goals I want to set for the year. The last time I did a set of goals someone mentioned that they weren’t real goals since they weren’t completely measurable. I agree, I get it. I’m not sure that goal is even the right word. Maybe intention fits a bit better….


Winter Moisturizers

Wow, it’s been freezing here lately. I don’t know if it’s last year’s mild winter or my two-week stint in Florida, but I’m struggling with the cold. I gave up trying to put together even remotely cute outfits; I’m all about the fleece lined leggings, chunky sweaters, thick wool socks, and the puffiest puffer coats I can…


5 Things to Do When You Have a Terrible Day

As you can imagine, I’ve been having some less-than-stellar days over the past few weeks. I’ve been pulling out all the tricks I have in my book (drinking water, making soup, hot baths, my favorite movies, etc.). Oh, and Maxie’s advice is, as always, spot on.

It’s partly because I haven’t been sleeping well and partly because it’s so cold that sometimes I just want to get in bed and watch something with my arms under the covers….


The One Thing I Won’t Travel Without


On My Radar

It was an emotionally draining week for me… but the victory here is that we have made it to Friday! Right now just making it to Friday is accomplishment enough. I have a long to-do list for next week and I’m slowly making my way through my inbox (if you emailed within the past two…


Lilly After Party Sale!

finally got into the After Party Sale. I was in line right at 8am, but the queue got stuck. I had to run to a meeting in a different town so I hoped that the technical issues would be sorted out when I got home. And… I’m in!


Two Weeks in Tampa

I just spent the past two weeks in Tampa and it couldn’t have come at a better time. Obviously I was planning on being there for Christmas, and then a trip fell through for New Year’s so I just decided to stay there for two weeks. It’s the longest stretch of time that I’ve been…
