January 2017 Resolutions


Hi and hello, my darling readers! I’ve missed you. The end of 2016 was kind of a blur (my sister’s wedding, the election and the holidays all mixed in) and I fell off the wagon with blogging. But new year, do you and all — the plan is to finally get back on track! That said, in an effort to be more realistic about my time, I’m going to stick to doing just two posts a week. (I wish that I could do more, but that’s just where I’m at right now.) So, a few weeks late, I thought I’d jump back in with a topic that’s on everyone’s mind right now: resolutions.


The weekend is here!


Happy Fri-YAY, my darling readers! What do you have planned for the weekend? I’m New England-bound for a few days — looking forward to a bit of R&R (and book reading!) at home. Here, to get your Saturday-Sunday started right, a few happy posts from around the web:

Oh, George. (Plus, one more Royal family bit.)

Wish this came in my size.

Love this panda stamp (via Swiss Miss).

Tips for starting a book club.

Best news of the week.

Can’t wait to see this film.

Love the back side of this sweater.

A dinner party conversation idea.

40 movies to watch before 40.

So so so excited.

3 wedding things


Lately, a lot of friends—some newly engaged—keep asking me for my best wedding advice. The biggest takeaway from my wedding is to each their own, meaning the stuff that mattered to me (invitations, picking a location with meaning, the photographer) may not matter for another bride. Still, there are three things that I’m so very glad Matt and I did.


A hairspray trick


For my sister’s bachelorette, we basically had a sleepover at the Old Saybrook Inn and Spa. It was perfect — we got manicures and massages, lounged by the pool and fell asleep to a good/bad J.Lo movie. The best! We also swapped beauty tips and, yay, I learned something new…

The weekend is here!


Happy Friday, dear readers! What do you have planned for the next couple of days off? I’m Connecticut-bound for my sister’s bachelorette party. It’s a surprise, so I can’t share details here. ;) It’s looking to be a bit rainy, but I’m hoping to do a bit of leaf peeping while I’m there. Here, to get your weekend started right, a few happy posts from around the web:

9 cutie pie kindergartners on their first month of school.

Yay for the new Sézane collection.
