• 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…

  • Packing for Spring Break!

    Spring Break is almost here! Well for us in New England anyways! After what seemed to be a long (LONG) winter I am excited to take off for a few days and get a little Vitamin D! I have been giving my closet (well, house too) a major overhaul and I am finding so much of my clothing for warmer temps is the wrong size, out of style or just plain tired. I have been hunting for a few new things to add to my warm weather gear while I pack for Spring Break! I have added some work out gear (just in case, also good for that plane ride!),…

  • 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…

    Shopping for her. What to get the woman who has everything? It can be tricky! A little bit of everything below, some of them favorite gifts I have received myself! Click on item name to shop!  Chloé Medium Marcie Satchel – This is absolutely a big ticket item.

  • I need to walk and it’s getting cold…

    This grieving thing is a tricky business. I recently read a particularly poignant article on A Cup Of Jo by the incredible Nora McInerny about grief and lipstick. Really, go read it. It totally explains why I feel the need to blow my hair dry and put on jeans instead of my uniform workout gear. She touched on a point that resonated with me (she lost her husband to brain cancer), she would soon be older than her husband ever was. I have never known a world without my big brothers. They have always looked out for me, their little sister. I now have to go on and live the rest of my…

  • Black Friday Favorites!

Anyways… some of my favorite brands are having some great discounts! Great time to get some of your holiday shopping done; and maybe some shopping for yourself! Holiday parties are coming after all!

Shopbop is up to 25% off full price…

  • Girls Weekend in Montauk

    What could be better and more therapeutic than a weekend away with 9 of your favorite friends in the salt air? I was fortunate enough to meet a group of women shortly after moving out of NYC in a playgroup for my first born with whom I have remained incredibly close since almost day one. Talk about an incredible support system. This year was our 6th trip away together and we planned Montauk all the way back in January. We did have a bit of rain, but even the rain and grayness was perfect! We stayed at Gurney’s which is right on the beach… I mean check out my room!…

  • Summer Hair Savior

    Summer hair. Humidity, salt, sun, water, chlorine… all those ponytails. Summer can really do a number on your hair. My hair was like straw last week… all my usual products just were not cutting it. I went back to some brands I had used in the past and did a little research.  I finally found it, my “Summer Hair Savior”!  Bumble and Bumble’s Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil line, described as “a divine dose of moisture”, it truly is just that. I use the Shampoo, Conditioner and Oil pictured above. It stops humidity frizz in its tracks, allows me to have perfect beachy, wavy hair and it also helped with the perfect smooth blow…

  • Yoga Gear Refresh

    After four weeks of weight training and a full week in Nantucket my body needs a break! I dialed up a practice yesterday morning with one of my favorite apps, Yoga Glo (Beachbody has some awesome streaming practices too!), and it was glorious! It reminded me just how much I need balance in my workouts. I tend to get focused and concentrate on one program but really I need weights, cardio, AND yoga to feel my best. I also realized I REALLY need to get some new yoga duds. I am constantly in workout gear, so obviously I like it to be polished enough to wear out for errands… Which…
