Here’s a few snapshots, more to come! !function(doc,s,id){ var e, p; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e = doc.createElement(s); e.id…

Montauk Lighthouse

Some would say Matt and I are crazy, because we are constantly on the go, doing and seeing new things, but we don’t mind a drive in order to explore! They say it’s more about the journey than the destination, and that’s my favorite part about roadtrips! The lighthouse was the icing on the cake, but the trip to Montauk, stopping at farmstands along the…

Brick & Denim

The 70’s are back, and you don’t see me complaining. I can remember my mom wearing skirts like this when I was little, because she literally never throws away her clothing and she continued to wear it through the decades. Now I own one – funny how that works. Have a lovely weekend, TGIF working gals! Make sure to follow my weekend adventures in instagram…

A serious question for you:

To bangs or not to bangs? I was feeling my hair here, but 1 day later impulsively chopped some straight across fringe. A gal is indecisive!!! What do you guys think??

For every gal who ever wished they didn’t chop their locks…

If you have followed me through the years, you may remember my long wavy hair, and you also may remember when i chopped it. i get bored easily with my look, and i am constantly changing it. Since starting my blog I’ve even gone red twice (here and here). But behind all of these changes I feel the most like myself with long dirty blonde…

I am reading this inspirational book called “Get off your BUT” and it basically addresses ways to stop saying “I want to do X… BUT” with an excuse, fear, or reason behind why you won’t ever end up doing this thing. Well, I’ve been wanting to launch my YouTube channel for way too long, and this book was my launching pad. Matt works as a…

Birthday feelings & the best romper I’ve ever owned…

There’s only 3 days left in my life as a 27-year-old and I must admit, these late twenties are MUCH easier than the early twenties, but also (in my opinion) much more strategic. my dad told me this year on his birthday that being in your 50’s feels like the 2nd half of a run. The first half is tough, and you try to find…
