• Fall Fashion: My Wishlist

    It is officially Fall! I don’t need to add many things to my closet (yay!) but there are a few things that have definitely caught my eye for the season. Also, sometimes you need a small refresh, wink wink!      (Click on corresponding number to shop item!) Perfect Black Silk Skirt – I feel like this would go from everything from boots to sneakers, cropped sweater back to a silk top for Christmas! Total staple.  Chunky No. 6 Boots – You know how I feel about my No. 6 boots! Adore them, these lug sole would be a great addition!  It Girl Pants –  Leave it to Alo to…

  • Snacks: Taco Cheese Popcorn

    There is an awesome popcorn shop on Block Island called Pop Off The Block… we discovered them a few years back when they had a store front in Watch Hill. They have the most creative (and tastiest) popcorn flavors… Caramel Apple being my favorite… but one of our kid’s favorites is Cheesy Taco Popcorn. I was determined to figure out how to make it. It is the perfect after school snack! I think I nailed it! It does require one “special” ingredient, powdered cheddar, but you can order on Amazon! I use homemade taco seasoning (see recipe below) because I always have a jar of it in my kitchen (we…

  • Easy Meals: Lettuce Wraps

    I can take very little credit for this EASY back-to-school weeknight dinner idea. Recently we saw friends for a small outdoor BBQ and my friend Rachael brought these amazing lettuce cups… she had seen the idea in a supermarket magazine of all places. They were fabulous. Light, fresh and delightfully filling all at the same time. I took her genius addition to the BBQ and expanded on it ever so slightly. Really the possibilities are endless depending on what you have in your fridge… and while I say this is an easy weeknight meal for the craziness of back to school (back to Fall, back to reality), there is absolutely…

  • Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

  • Maple Peach Crisp

    I came down on Sunday morning to find our brand new peaches already starting to spoil… even though they weren’t ripe! Heat and no air conditioning is not produces’ friend unfortunately. I hate wasting food so what better thing to make but a crisp? A close riff on my favorite Bourbon Apple Crisp… it’s delicious and I couldn’t wait until dessert… I had it for breakfast for with coconut yogurt and blueberries. Perfection.

  • 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…

  • Summer Fashion: Tie Dye

    Tie Dye… perhaps THE fashion trend of the Summer. I don’t see it going away anytime soon either… I have seen some for Fall fashion (#7 is fab) and I am in to it! I love my workout tee (#3) and highly recommend it! But tie dye isn’t just for t-shirts and workout gear! I am COVETING this silk dress: #10 .
