So Ladylike

While I spend a lot of my days switching back and forth from workout gear to street clothes, I am and will forever be a girly girl. I know that my feed may not reflect that all the time! But on a recent ASOS binge shopping night I snatched up this little floral number, NOT realizing that it was PETITE! I’m 5’6” – definitely an oversight on my part at 1 AM. So I got ...

Paris Travel Guide: The Non Tourist Way to Stay, Eat & Drink in the City of Love

As I’ve shared here in the past, I was fortunate enough to study abroad in France during college, which resulted in Paris forever holding a special place in my heart. My never-ending love affair with the city and be it any and all things French has never wavered. I’ve been back several times since college but this recent trip was a tad different. I didn’t stay in a beautiful tiny apartment or in an off-the-beaten path ...

It was my first time to visit (pop back over here to read all about that trip!) but I fell in love with the English countryside.  To say I was eager to get back out is nothing short of an understatement.  During this recent visit I took my mom along to experience ...

First timer review: Lasering with Spruce & Bond

I've been pretty open here about my issues with sensitive skin. I have been battling it since I was little. I was the child who at camp could only use Dove soap or else I broke out as though I had been walking through a forest of poison ivy. Entering into my older years though and knowing that one needed to get things cleaned up - i.e. wax that stuff off years. I found myself ...

Two nights in: London’s Jumeirah Grosvenor Suites

One of the most beautiful places in London is Hyde Park. Being a girl from New York I thoroughly enjoy spending time in any park that’s situated nicely right in the middle of a big, bustling city, it’s a tranquil escape. A way to wind down and relax amidst the hustle.  A good morning run through the park is one of the most wonderful ways to start a day in London. When I headed back ...
