My Favorite Looks So Far This Year

For pretty much the first half of 2020 my daily attire consisted of loungewear and athleisure. Anytime I shopped, I found myself looking for comfy sweats, hoodies, and sweaters since I was trying to leave my apartment as little as possible. Then, this spring, when more things began opening up, I started planning my trip out to the East Coast. I decided I had enough of the unofficial Covid lounge attire and planned my wardrobe as if we weren’t in the middle of a pandemic, which I’ve continued to do for autumn and the upcoming winter months. My thought process is this: just because thereRead More →

15 Affordable Autumn Must-Haves

Every year when autumn arrives there’s a special feeling in the air. One of my favorite things about the season are the rainy nights, which are perfect for cozying up inside with a cup of tea and Netflix. I also look forward to the transition of switching out my summer essentials for products representative of the fall such as seasonal vegetables, warm weather clothing, and pumpkin spice everything. Here’s my list of 15 affordable autumn must-haves that I’ve purchased (and love) this season. Looking forward to a spa night when the weather gets cool (bonus if it’s raining) feels so therapeutic. I’ll start by drawingRead More →

What I Loved in October, 2020: Autumn Foliage

A collection of things I loved in October, from beauty products and fashion to entertainment and everything in between. I decided to move back to the East Coast for many reasons, but one of the biggest was that I missed the four seasons. The last time I got to experience autumn and the leaves changing colors was in 2010 before I moved to Los Angeles. Because I grew up around it, and witnessed it every year, it was never a big deal to me. It wasn’t until a few years ago that I actually started to miss it. The other day Billy and I wereRead More →

What I'll Miss Most About Living in Los Angeles

In my last post, I announced that I’ll be leaving Los Angeles and moving to New York City. I talked about how Billy and I came to that decision and shared some of my favorite memories (and what I’ll miss most) about L.A. Attempting to condense over nine years of living in this beautiful city into one article is impossible and I hate knowing that I’m leaving out so much. As I scrolled through my photos, I created a folder and then narrowed down my favorite pictures so I can share them with you guys. Whenever possible, I’ve linked the event or place so youRead More →

Why I’m Leaving Los Angeles After Almost 10 Years

After living in Los Angeles for almost 10 years, Billy and I said goodbye to the city we instantly fell in love with. This past July, as we flew back to New England to spend the summer with my family, we knew there was a chance we wouldn’t be returning to L.A. (at least not for a while). The decision to leave wasn’t one that either of us took lightly. We went back and forth, discussing the pros and cons of leaving Los Angeles and moving to New York City. How we came to our decision to move to New York City It all beganRead More →

What I Loved in September, 2020: NYC sunsets

A collection of things I loved in September, from beauty products and fashion to entertainment and everything in between. Sure, the streets of New York City look a lot different than they did pre-Covid, but spending a few days here (in couldn’t-ask-for-better- weather) has been a completely different experience. Billy and I have been able to get around the city a lot easier since it’s less crowded than what we’re used to.  Whenever I’m vacationing in the city I make a point of stopping in my favorite candy store, Sugarfina. (I love their colorful confections so much, I created a V-Day charcuterie board a fewRead More →
