There’s No Place Like NYC At Christmastime

Before Billy and I moved to New York City in November 2020, we had an annual tradition of leaving Los Angeles in mid-December and flying to my family’s home in Massachusetts. We would then take the train to Grand Central and spend a few days in NYC at Christmastime. This was something that I looked forward to year after year. Last year was our first official Christmas living in New York City. Things were a bit different because of Covid, but we still had an amazing holiday (which actually felt like a month-long celebration). As we get closer to the holidays, I looked back onRead More →

My Go-To Candles for Every Season and Occasion

Growing up my bedroom was filled with overpowering candles and incense from The Dancing Bear. Aside from when I was sleeping, there was never a time when something wasn’t lit. Fast forward to the present and my scent preference has surely changed. I’ve traded in my patchouli incense and my inexpensive (and at times headache inducing) candles from the local mall for something more refined. Now when I invest in a candle, I pay attention to the top notes and seek out high quality. I look for the type of scent that gives off an alluring aroma without being too powerful. Over the years, I’veRead More →

10 Tips That Will Make Your New Year's Resolutions Successful

Did you create any New Year’s resolutions for 2021? If you didn’t, it’s not too late to start.

Every year when January 1st begins I make a list of changes I want to make and things I’d like to do better. I start out strong. Then I break my progress. Why?

Winter Coat Guide: 36 Styles I’m Loving This Season

One of the best things about moving back to the East Coast is being able to purchase cold weather clothing and accessories and actually wear them more than a few times each year. When I lived in L.A. I’d vacation here for a few weeks in December. Immediately upon returning to the California sunshine and winters of 75 degrees or warmer my cold weather clothing got pushed to the back of my closet. As I created this winter coat guide filled with my favorite picks, I was sure to include a variety of styles, colors, textures, and price points. Here are 36 coats that willRead More →
