My Favorite Fox Things For Fall!

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 It’s not a secret that I am absolutely obsessed with foxes. I can’t really remember when or why I became so into them, but somewhere along the way they became Hudson’s theme, and now I of course have a fox tattooed on me in representation of him, my little fox.…

Personal: Are These The Best Years Of My Life?

After graduating high school, I used to visit home from college and curl up in bed with my old journals. I would read about nights I broke curfew and thought it was funny, skating miles and miles just to get ‘hot now’ donuts at Krispy Kreme and old and now meaningless moments with young crushes who exited life as quickly as they entered. It felt…

Hudson’s 10 Month Update!

This month FLEW by, and I cannot believe I am starting to pin ideas for Hudson’s 1st birthday party. How did this happen? How do I have an almost 1-year-old? What is it even like being a mom to a toddler?   BABY UPDATE: At the end of nine months, Hudson changed SO much, I can hardly keep up! First, he is finally scooching!! I am…

Fall Colors/ Final NYFW Look

I wore this on the final day of NYFW and the colors moved me. They’re my favorite fall colors, all in one look! I found these pants at Zara, and linked a similar pair below. I was actually featured on WWD in this look, which was probably one of the most flattering things to happen in a while!   I found these funky yellow glasses…

NYFW Day 3 // Polka Dotted!

Vintage vibes all the way on NYFW day 3 (for me!) I found this Dooney and Bourke at Crossroads for under $30, which is incredible to me after knowing what I would pay for them when I used to sell vintage!   Sometimes less is better, and I absolutely loved styling this polka dot dress with a minimal look. I’ve linked all of the items…

South Africa Pt. 3: Addo Elephant Park Photo Diary

Addo Elephant park was our final stop before heading to the Port Elizabeth airport to fly back to Cape Town. We spent two days in the park, staying at the new Nyathi Rest Camp. It was hands-down the coolest place I’ve ever stayed and been to. The second we drove in, there were elephants right in the road! JUST FEET AWAY FROM THE CAR. It…

Personal: Has Instagram Changed My Lifestyle Choices?

“I did it for the gram” is a phrase most people on social media (not just influencers!) have probably said in the past year or two. While I was eating at ‘cookie do’ in NYC, alone on a park bench with other random strangers taking pictures of their sickeningly sweet “cookie dough” in a cup, I started to think a lot about my habits, and…

NYFW Day 2 + My First Time at Top of The Rock!!

For “My Day 2” of NYFW (but really Day 4) I popped into the Leanne Marshall show, which absolutely blew me away. The colors were fabulous, and I absolutely LOVE the high necklines. I also loved seeing so many different shaped models on the runway, it was a breath of fresh air!   After the show, I hopped in an Uber and met up with…

NYFW Day 1 & Details On How I Do Fashion Week My Way

When I first moved to NY and participated in NYFW, I wrote it off. You can read all about that here and here. It is a lot of work and a big time investment, and I have definitely wondered if it is worth it to be a part of, and not just watch the Stories from my bed! But this season, I realized that I…

My Bedroom Tour

My  bedroom is my favorite room in our house. It always has gorgeous even side lighting, and it’s so bright and airy. I remember how dreary it looked the first time I saw it – it had camel colored carpeting and toffee colored walls, with a picture of a horse above the bed. Needless to say, I had a vision and absolutely loved the transformations…

Personal: Getting a Mortgage As Two Freelancers

For this weeks personal post, let’s talk a little bit about our upcoming move & how getting a mortgage as not one, but TWO freelancers looks (hint: it isn’t good).   As most of you know, I said goodbye to my W-2 income job in May and said hello to the 10-99 freelancing life to stay home with my baby. Let me first say that…

Sunday Donuts Fall Look

There’s a cute local donut shop called Dough Hut in the West End of Long Beach that we rarely ever go to, but we decided to take a long walk and soak in the cold front vibes. I’ve worn this Paper Crown sweater around the house a ton because it’s my freakin’ favorite, but was so excited to wear it out! A lot of you…

My Favorite Brand For One-Piece Swimsuits + Beach Day!

After having Hudson (and probably before as well) bikinis aren’t my thing. Luckily one pieces are “cool” again, but I still struggle to find cute ones that aren’t too much or too plain. Just my luck, at the end of summer I found THE place for all things beach-related! They have some adorable bikini’s too, but I am obsessed with their one-piece swimsuits, including this amazing Clementine…

6 Toys We Added To Our Playroom This Week!

I was chatting with my momma friend Kira the other day about how Hudson seems bored during playtime, and she mentioned adding some new toys to his collection. I realized that I hadn’t really upgraded his toys in a while, and maybe he had outgrown them mentally (and physically too!). It’s hard because I know I want to be a minimalist ( and I am…

South Africa Pt. 2: Hermanus, Swellendam & Knysna

After spending a few days in Cape Town, we rented a car and drove the Garden Route. It is between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth, so we decided to drive one way, and then fly back. We first stopped in Hermanus, then Swellendam and lastly Knysna, before we headed to Addo Elephant park. It was a total of 6 hours of driving, but we broke…

My Favorite Finds For Pre-Fall + LETS MEET!

Hi guys! I feel like it’s been a while since I’ve done an outfit post, since we’ve been traveling and I’ve been living in sweats 1/2 the time anyway. haha! I snapped these on a walk last night with my cousin Sammy. I just picked up these jeans from Madewell, and I cannot handle how incredible the color is. It doesn’t look like this color…

South Africa Pt. 1: Cape Town

It feels crazy to say that I’ve literally been to the other side of the world and back, but after over a full day of traveling we made it to South Africa! It was actually not as daunting as I imagined getting here, but we had the mentality going into it that whatever happens, happens. If Hudson is a mess, we’ll handle it. If we’re…

Hudson’s 9 Month Update / Why We Shouldn’t Compare As Moms

From months eight to nine, Hudson’s personality has begun to shine through so much more! He laughs along with conversations now, like he’s a part of them, and is just generally more of a human being! He’s fun to hangout with and see the world with, and his fascination with tiny little things makes me wish I could see the world through his eyes, even…

My Vacation Skincare Regimen

As you guys know, we’ve been traveling A TON this Summer. My skin type is super dry, so it’s really important for me to stick to a skincare regimen, but I also don’t like to pack 8 billion different lotions and serums while we’re on the road. I was on the lookout for one serum to pack that gets the job done, and I was…
