Hudson’s Play Area

When I began staying home with Hudson, I quickly realized that it was a pain to constantly be setting up his toys and then putting them away every day. It felt like wasted time and energy, but I also don’t like a mess all over the house. I rearranged some furniture, and ended up creating this simple little corner for him to hang out in…

Living Room Refresh With Lulu & Georgia

After living here for almost two years, I kept feeling like the living room needed a change (this is how it looked before). I love our coffee table and knew that it was here to stay, but I still wasn’t sold on the rug or the accessories in the room. Our side table and lamp were from our last apartment, and I knew they needed to be…

Condo Woes: Why We Still Dream of a Home

I live in a condo. I also work, cook, parent, clean and take care of the laundry in said condo. My apartment is probably maximum 1100 square feet, which in NY standards is HUGE, and I love the cozy feeling of it. But, some days it does feel like we’re bursting at the seams. I am sure all of you out there who live without…

How Buying A Home Changes You: Parentomorphosis + A VIDEO!

Matt and I bought this apartment almost 2 years ago, and since buying a home we turned from messy tenants into two people who treat home like it’s a prized possession (because let’s be honest, it is!) Growing up, I had clothes all over the place, sand in my bed from the beach and I did my laundry once a month, if that. But, like most…

Mornings Like These

* This post was sponsored by Macy’s but all opinions are my own! So many mornings, I instantly jump up to check e-mails or start crossing off items on my to-do list, and it feels so good to take a morning like this once in a while to eat some fruit in bed, enjoy my coffee and lounge around in these insanely cozy joggers from Macy’s…

Our Kitchen Refresh With West Elm

As most of you know, we renovated our kitchen last year. It looked 100% better, but I was super pregnant, and didn’t have much time to put those finishing touches on things. I always felt like the kitchen was plain, but between having Hudson and figuring out life as a new mom, I didn’t put much time or energy toward it. When West Elm mentioned…

Around The House

So this year I am going to make more of an effort to share my [little] home updates over here! Last year we spent most of our time renovating our kitchen, and I slowly transformed our bedroom into one of my…

My Holiday Gift To Matt

This year Matt became a dad. In a lot of ways becoming a dad is much scarier than becoming a mom, because men don’t have 9 months of changing and growing into the role, they are somewhat thrown into it. It’s like one day their wife has a giant belly, and the next they have a baby that is half theirs! Sometimes the disconnect was…

Where I Found Baby Gear That Fits My Aesthetic

Jonathan Adler Sensory Gym  Back when we lived in Miami, there was a Jonathan Adler store in the Design District that we used to frequent. I always loved his quirky design style, so when I found out he was designing a capsule collection of baby gear, I knew it would fit in perfectly to our home. One of my biggest fears about having a baby…

Seasonal Nostalgia

* Paid for by Refinery29 and Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments A few years back, Matt and I decided to pack a carry-on, fly cross-country to California, and rent a VW van to roadtrip & live in to celebrate the holiday season. It’s my favorite holiday adventure to date, and we dream of repeating it all the time. We named our VW “Sunny Delight” and spent Christmas Eve…

Pumpkin Carving // Baby Waiting + Updates

Tomorrow is my due date, and here we are still waiting. We went to the doctor on Thursday, and I was told if I was having contractions they would send me to labor & delivery (and I knew that I was having some, just was not sure if they were Braxton Hicks or the real thing). Turns out it was false labor. I had my…

Nursery Gallery Wall With Framebridge

Before the baby arrives, it’s tough to personalize their space. There’s no pictures of them, except for ultrasound pictures, so I had a hard time adding a little bit of him to his room! Once we took our maternity photos, I knew I wanted to include a few, so he could look around and see some personalized pictures of his family in his space. I…

Interior decorating is one of my favorite things, so of course I wanted to give him the perfect space to spend time in and grow up in.

Our Farmhouse Kitchen Reno: Before & After

When we bought this apartment (more on that here) we knew the weakest link was the kitchen, and we knew a farmhouse kitchen reno was in order, eventually. While it looked livable, the cabinets were falling apart and from 1999. They were made of a fake wood, and the previous owner put a white plastic coating over the top. We didn’t love the granite, it…

love & casper

We started our Sunday off with a fresh new mattress! It was pretty exciting for us, because I’ve had my mattress since I was in (probably) middle school, making it over a decade old. It was time for a change! Most of the reason why I never replaced it was because of the awful inconvenience of mattress shopping (usually in gross weird mattress stores), and…
