MY SECOND HOME

As we get older, the concept of home changes. More likely than not, you get back to the place you grew up in less and less. Let's face it - by now your parents probably already cleared out your old room, making it into a guest room or an office. It's like, when the heck did we become adults?!…

MORNING FEELS

This time of year is like the total calm before the storm. Gearing up for the holidays is no easy feat. We've all just gotten back from thanksgiving food comas, (likely) too much drinking, and are playing catch up at work. Then all of a sudden, hi, holidays are here! Time for a full calendar of parties, juggling your holiday shopping, and figuring out travel plans with friends and family (which, as we know, can come…

5 WAYS TO RECHARGE

How are ya'll doing???  If I'm being honest, it's been a pretty crazy last couple months.  Between moving, balancing my full-time job and the blog, and fashion week, I've felt like a complete insane person.  I mean literally running around, head in a million places, just trying to get through the weeks.  I HAAAAATE this and knew it was time to hit re-set in order to get back to my "normal" (whatever that really is....stay tuned)

MIAMI GUIDE PART II

I don’t know about ya’ll, but my mind is in total vacation mode.   Ergo, I’m hitting you with a quick rundown of some of my favorite eats and hotels in Miami.  I have a reallll soft spot for this city.  It’s honestly the perfect getaway whether you’re looking for some quick r&r or ready to rage poolside (hey, we don’t judge).  The Broken Shaker / Freehand – One of my all-time favorite happy hour spots (their cocktails are out…

HANGOVER-PROOF POMEGRANATE COCKTAIL

I applaud those that participate in sober January.  Truly, that has to be one of the best things you can do for your body (and mind) at the start of a new year. Although I didn’t get on board this month, I figure the next best thing we can do is be more conscious of the drinks we’re mixing up.  Hell, sometimes a girl just needs her cocktail.  Anywho, this week I teamed up with KeVita to concoct a delightful…

LOCAL TREASURES

I love love loveee a good farmer’s market.  In many ways, they take me back to my roots.  As a wee child, my mom would always take me to the local farms for apple picking, pumpkin picking and hayrides for Halloween.  Having a bit of a nostalgic moment here, bear with me.  These are some photos of local finds via Casey Farm from when I was in Rhode Island this past labor day weekend.  Everything was SO bright and fresh.  I…

CH-CH-CH-CHIA SEED BREAKFAST PUDDING

My typical Saturday morning routine almost always (I’m talking 95% of the time) includes a massive iced coffee with almond milk and a bagel with cream cheese. This is my little weekend guilty pleasure. However, after a week of indulging in one too many carbs, I had to put my foot down.  After researching different chia seed pudding recipes, I came up with the variation that worked for me (below). This is an insanely healthy and quick breakfast (or dessert) option.  Additionally,…

COCKTAILS & CHANDELIERS

I stumbled upon a new restaurant called Santina with some friends last weekend while having a day in the meatpacking district.  This place is essentially a glass box directly underneath the entrance to the high line. For those of you who don’t live in NYC, the high line is a structure created from old railroad tracks.  It has now been turned into a park with beautiful gardens and architectural delights (aka, a tourist’s dream come true). The aesthetic of this…

OK, I JUST DISCOVERED TEX MEX

Ok, I need to document my meal last night at Javelina Tex Mex in Flatiron.  You GUYS, I think I’m officially in love with tex mex.  Or maybe, it was the queso.  Or maybe, it was the cilantro avocado margarita that just did me right.   It was recommended that I go try this place out by a close foodie friend.  On top of that, I went on Eater and saw that Javelina was number 1 on the list for hot new March restaurants.  I…

305 FUN

Wow I missed Miami.  I hadn’t been since college, and I have to say this current trip kind of woke me up from (what seemed like) a winter coma.  I was itching to get down to the 305 for some sun, sand and great eats.  With just a long weekend to work with, I feel like my boyfriend and I managed to squeeze in a ton.  Below I’ve listed some of the spots that we ate it, in addition to some of the…
