• 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…

  • Black Friday Favorites!

    I hope you had the most wonderful Thanksgiving! Black Friday is now morphing into a full week situation… and Cyber Monday basically started yesterday. They need to come up with a new name. 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!

  • What to wear for Thanksgiving!

    Thanksgiving has always been a favorite holiday in my family. This year we will be having a very low key family filled Thanksgiving and remembering what we are grateful for in this life. I am sure I will be wearing something comfortable and casual… but dressing up is fun too! It is only two weeks away so here are some ideas of what to wear when gathering for the holiday. The mixing of textures and fabrics is the key for these outfits. Velvet is so hot right now and give me a chunky knit any day! I also have a handful of friends heading to warmer climates for the holiday…

  • 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!…

  • 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. This happens to me with the change of every season… anyone else? Two, Bloomingdales  25% off Friends and Family Sale ends TONIGHT (4/15/18).

  • Travel…

    We are taking off for February break tomorrow and are lucky enough to be venturing somewhere warmer than the North East. We are SO excited! That travel day… it can be daunting right? Kids and air travel can be tricky. I have been stuck on an airplane and in an airport with a toddler for hours; you want to be ready for anything. I find that when I am traveling solo with the kids if I over prepare I don’t feel so anxious. This means starting to pack a week ahead of time, yes I might obsessively over plan. It drives my husband crazy, but it works. So, since I…
