Travel Guide: Why Connecticut is the new must do weekend escape

A few weeks ago I decided I needed an escape from the brutal, blistering cold of NYC’s concrete winter jungle. Sure I had made a seemingly attainable goal for 2018 to stay put in NYC for the month of January for a few reasons but I simply couldn’t bare it any longer. I craved a getaway. That’s my vice. Traveling, trips, exploring. Upstate seemed too far, the Northfork in January? No thank you, not this ...

That *Perfect* Little Red Dress

Just in time for Valentine's Day (or a date night Galentine's with your girlfriends) I've found your quintessential little red dress over on Amazon's Fashion site. This C/MEO LRD is could possibly be better than a boyfriend and will most definitely get you a few drinks bought on a girls night out. I'm smitten with it, the length is perfect - not too long, not too short ... the ruffles are epic and the back? ...

January is officially here meaning your outdoor workouts are more than likely not happening – or at least they aren’t for me – and with the impending snow storm hitting the east coast called a Bomb Cyclone (WTAF) I can tell you one thing is certain I won’t be making it out of my apartment to go to a class. So in order to not go stir crazy and to ensure that I’m not slacking ...

The never ending debate of what to wear definitely does not get easier on New Year's Eve! While sequins might not be for everyone all the time I personally love to wear them even when the ball isn’t dropping at midnight so I’ve pull together a few options that you can wear long after that champagne hangover is gone and the kiss at midnight is a distant memory. Given that today is NYE each of ...

I’m with the Band

This is my uniform as of late. I've become admittedly obsessed with this jacket and I won't even deny it. As bold of a statement maker as it is it pairs all too well with everything in sight. Skinny jeans and a tee? Check! Over a black silk dress? Done! With kick-flare Rag & Bone leather pants? Yup! Tried them all. Loved them all. While this big of a statement piece isn't for everyone I think ...

What to Wear: Thanksgiving Day Dilemma

Trying to select a Thanksgiving day outfit appropriate enough for stuffing your face and not looking 9 months pregnant is about as easy as navigating the never ending mass of people at the airport on the Wednesday before the feast filled holiday. Since we're a small family, we're a bit more casual than some of the Thanksgiving dinners of year's past. In lieu of dinner we do Thanksgiving day feasting. I love to cook so ...
