• July Favorites

    Hey hey, here we are half way through Summer! How is everyone doing? All a little different, but we are making sure we are still having an excellent Summer. Here are my favorites from this month!       Outdoor Movie Projector – What kid doesn’t love staying up late for an outdoor movie. This thing is awesome! Face Masks – I mean this one is obvious right? You have to wear one so let’s make it fun.  Shan Swimsuit – I actually have this in a different color but it is THE BEST swimsuit I have… so flattering, so comfortable. I feel like a million bucks in it! HBO’s…

  • June Favorites…

    June is always a whirlwind with school ending and the start of Summer! All of my favorites from the month either made my life easier, just made me happy or provided a great escape of entertainment away from the news cycle! Never Have I Ever – Netflix–  Oh my gosh is this show adorable! We binged this teen coming of age comedy-drama so quickly and were so sad when it ended! Don’t miss it! Living Proof Perfect Hair Day In Shower Styler – I have fully embraced my curly hair during this quarantine (and to be honest, the heatwave) and this product really makes it so much easier to keep…

  • Father’s Day Gift Guide 2020

    I think I may say this every time I compile a men’s gift guide… guys, well they can be hard to shop for. Here are some ideas for that favorite Dad in your life!   DECOMEN Multi-purpose Neck Gaiter with 10 PCS Safety Carbon Filters – My husband LOVES this for a face mask. No ear loops, no fuss, just pulls up off your neck when you need it.  “Everybody Has A Dream Down By The Sea” by Summer Strauch – Perfect print for their (maybe new) home office. Sonos Pro-Ject T1 Phono SB Turntable –  What’s cooler than a vinyl collection? A super cool way to play them thank…

  • April Favorites… 2020

    I know I say it all the time; “Where did the month go?”. But really… where did it go? April was one very long blur. I can not believe it’s already over. Lot’s of TV, movies & books  here… because what else have we done this month? I hope everyone is hanging in during their quarantine!     White + Warren Cashmere Sweatshirt – I bought this utterly soft sweater from my favorite local shop, Fred. It’s on sale in both spots! I LOVE it. Feels put together while still so comfortable.  Defending Jacob – Apple TV – This book was actually the first book I picked for book club…

  • Cocktails: Quaranita

    I came up with this one on our rocking Saturday night… I don’t care for super sweet drinks so this was perfect for me. Feel free to add a little simple syrup if desired! You can easily reduce the recipe down to one or two cocktails or save the leftover juice/tequila mixture in a mason jar in the fridge for the next night!  Also, in case you missed it in my March Favorites post; I have found a liquor delivery service that is SO EASY, and purchases from local stores! Spirits, wine and mixers! Win win. Check them out here: Drizly!         

  • March Favorites…

    Well, okay, this March was weird. No other way to explain it. We are living in the middle of a global pandemic that is unlike anything we have ever experienced before… and we are shut in our homes. No matter, I still definitely had my “favorite things” this month. I apologize if there are repeats from months past… what can I say, I didn’t get out much.     Drizly Alcohol Delivery – So, we are all trying to stay home and not venture to stores… this service is brilliant. Delivery from your local liquor stores… just like Instacart or Prime Now… but for your Tequila, Wine & mixers. A…

  • Week Three Corona Virus Hiatus: Let’s Move

    Alright, alright, alright… here we go, week three! How is everyone doing? Stir crazy? Hanging in? I have found that a daily (okay, almost daily) dose of exercise has been doing wonders over here. I have rounded up some great sources for workouts below… and don’t forget getting outside for a walk, run, bike ride… just please keep your distance from others! If you have ever debated getting a Peloton, now is the time! It runs around $58 a month! Even if you don’t want to invest in the bike, their streaming service is awesome. Tons of additional  content ranging from yoga to weight training to boot camp. If you…

  • Week Two Coronavirus Hiatus: Gratitude

    Okay, here we are… rolling in to week two of this thing. It will be be a lot longer, we know that. That is OKAY. We are all OKAY. I know I have spoken about gratitude a lot in the past 18 months. The shifts that happened in my life after I lost my brother… the changes in my perspective are incredibly helpful here. This is a scary time. We are scared about what the future holds for our communities, small businesses and our country as a whole. We have to remember just how lucky we are as a small little family. My family, my immediate family & extended family,…

  • Week One Coronavirus Hiatus

    OKAY. Here we go, the first full week for us on our little Coronavirus Hiatus is here. The weekend went smoothly… we are fully stocked (did you read this post?) and are staying in (please read THIS ONE). I know I have been preachy (well for weeks now?) but let me give you one little glimpse as to why. Meet my good friend, Fiona. Please read this article she wrote on being the mom of a immunocompromised son. We adore this family and knowing them has truly opened my eyes to the importance of being aware of those around you and how your minor actions can have a bigger impact on…
