• August Favorites…

    We were all over the place this month! A little bit of travel and sadly lots of fevers, infections and antibiotics! The month feels a bit like a blur and here we are back at school… where did Summer go? It was fun while it lasted! See below for what I have been loving this month and using on repeat! Olaplex No 6 Bond Smoother – I am an Olaplex convert… I talked about the bond builder, shampoo and conditioner in my July Favorites and then I tried this leave in. These products have totally repaired my hair- I no longer have beach fried hair! Everlast Pro Style Training Gloves…

  • July Favorites…

    My favorites this month pretty much revolve around the beach… and exercising. All things Summer. Some I have talked about before so they are old favorites but also some new finds… how had I never tried on Beyond Yoga before? Click on item name to shop!  1. Beyond Yoga Alloy Ombre Leggings – these literally yelled my name (as my sister in law proclaimed!) when I saw them and they are sooooo good and that metallic splatter detail is perfect. Uber flattering and ridiculously comfortable; also very breathable for these hot Summer work outs! 2. Beyond Yoga Alloy Ombre Double Back Bra – Okay, a little matchy matchy but I like…

  • Kearsley Lloyd on Sun Protection

    Sun protection in the hot summer months is crucial! Beach time, golf courses, tennis matches, amusement parks; we all spend so much time outside! I am so excited to have my incredibly talented Rhode Island friend, Kearsley Lloyd share her wisdom today on A Modern Housewife! Kearsley now lives full time in Bermuda (yes, my other favorite place!) and is a graphic designer and artist. She specializes in custom designs, branding and illustrations. She has found a niche working with brides to create specialized logos, invitations and accessories for everything surrounding the big day, and creating monograms to carry with them beyond.     In addition she designs corporate logos, boat…

  • June Favorites…

Click on item number to shop! Eat What You Love by Danielle Walker – Another library book that has ended up in my Amazon cart! Her latest cookbook is full of fun twists on old classics.

  • “Burner Juice”

    I have loved celery juice now for a little over 9 months. I talked about it here, in this post. I swear to goodness it helps with digestion, clarity, my skin, my hair… which I think is all tied to gut health. I really think it has healed my gut from SIBO. I have read science behind “The Celery Juice Diet” thanks to the Anthony William books and I think it works, maybe it’s mumbo jumbo, but who cares if I feel better, right? So I have been strict, per Anthony William, about drinking straight, pure, freshly made celery juice… until we went to LA last week. I had a juice…

  • May Favorites…

    May is all about getting ready for summer right? Or at least getting my closet ready for summer. I have been on a major purge lately getting rid of things we don’t love or use anymore (read HERE), and my closet has been hit hard (more on that in a future post!)… so I need some fun replacements! Also, have been on a reading tear, I even got to meet the lovely sisters behind the Liv Constantine hit The Last Mrs. Parrish, #12 on the list! Without further ado… my May favorites! Click on item name to shop! Shoshanna Tinsley Dress – I tried this on on a whim and…

  • January Favorites…

    Wow, January. You were long. Am I right? No better time than the doldrums of Winter to introduce a fun new post series! Monthly favorites! At the end of each month I will let you know what I have been loving, living in and most excited about that month! Let’s go! Alo High-Waist Lounge Legging – These are THE most comfortable leggings I have ever owned. Seriously. I’d like to say I reserve them for the end of a long day and weekends… but I definitely wear them more often than that! Alo Haze Long Sleeve – Equally as comfortable as the Alo leggings. Turtleneck is perfect for this freezing weather…

  • Holiday Gift Guide #4 – Your Best Friend

    What to get your best bud? The friend that keeps you grounded, that is always there for a laugh? Sometimes that can be hard! You want to get something they will really enjoy and not just a token that will clutter up their house, am I right? I love getting a consumable (food or beauty!) that can be used and then be gone, or something they wouldn’t buy for themselves! Below find my favorites; bonus- everything except for the awesome L.L. Bean tote is $50 and under! Click on item name to shop! L.L. Bean Signature Camo Boat and Tote – I love an L. L. Bean tote bag; durable,…
