  • 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!

  • Boca Beach Club and What I Really Packed For Spring Break!

    After our Fall and Winter we really wanted to get away for a proper Spring Break. We needed some sunshine and some relaxation and not much else. But where to go? We rely heavily on Bermuda for getaways (why wouldn’t we!) but a friend recommended The Boca Beach Club, a Waldorf Astoria Hotel, when we couldn’t find anything else that peaked our interest.  Amazingly they had availability and the flights into West Palm Beach weren’t astronomical when we went to book… only two weeks ahead. Sold. What was appealing about the property is it is actually three hotels under one umbrella. You have access to the restaurants and activities at…

  • Designer Spotlight: Haverhill Collection

    I met the fabulous Haverhill Leach many moons ago when we worked together at Kate Spade Corporate. She was always the epitome of cool so it comes as no surprise to me that her eponymous jewelry collection is just that; cool. She effortlessly creates necklaces, rings, earrings & bracelets that are timeless, modern and slightly edgy all at the same time. The are perfect for layering and stacking but also pretty enough to wear simply on their own. This naturally leaves me coveting many (MANY) pieces. She has designed something for everyone which makes it easy to find the perfect piece for a Mother’s Day gift. Also… perfect for impending…

  • Coconut Macaroons

    Coconut Macaroons. I think I first started making these for my in-laws for Passover early in our marriage. The first time I brought them my husband’s grandparents jubilantly stated that these were the best macaroons they had ever had. Ever. Coconut macaroons were their favorite cookie so they knew what they were talking about. Now I make them for the family for any holiday. They are so simple with only 5 ingredients and come together quickly.   I also think they make the perfect holiday “snowball” cookie and they make their way on to our Christmas Cookie plate. (Try our Gluten Free Roll Out Sugar Cookie for you Christmas Cookie…
