• Point Sur X J. Crew

    My apologies for being behind on blog posts. While I am working out this SIBO (small intestine bacterial overgrowth… lovely. I will do a post on it in the future)  with Low FODMAPS diet situation, my meals have been boring, redundant and not always that colorful… I have not had any inspirations for new recipes as of late. That said, I am actually excited to have been diagnosed with SIBO (yesterday!) so I can move on with treatment and get back to cooking! The other thing that has been all consuming, although exciting and fun, is our house renovation. I  have spent so much time looking at tile, lighting, paint…

    You’ve got just under one week to find the perfect gift for Mother’s Day! Thank goodness for express shipping! I put together four basket/bags chock full of excellent gifts for any Mom out there!

  • Secret Source: J. Crew Factory

    Summer clothes… they get so grungy by Labor Day am I right? I do not like to invest heavily in summer pieces unless it is a dress for an event. I would rather buy less expensive items that only last a season or two. Not to mention summer is the best time to try out new trends, new colors & new styles, so why break the bank. I have been getting my fun summer upgrades from J. Crew Factory for years (I probably do have a few shorts from the first trip there!). Everything is always on sale and you are guaranteed to get cute style for less. They are…

  • Spring Wardrobe Refresher

    Two things. One, it felt like Spring actually arrived yesterday in the Northeast (today is cold a dreary), and I opened my closet and felt like I had NOTHING to wear.

So, I figured I would put together some items that I feel breathe some life into my wardrobe for Spring!

  • My Current Beauty Favorite

    I receive lots of questions about hair and make up (thank you, I must be doing something right!) so I wanted to put together a list of my current favorites. I am a brand loyalist, always have been. If I find something I like I stick with it. I also always think products work best with their accompanying products… Rule follower, I know.
