On My Radar

Instead of recapping my week (which was the same as every other week pretty much: workouts and working!), I’d love just to ask you guys what type of “gift” content you want to see in the coming weeks. I’ve started my shopping list (it’s looking good) for my family, and I’m already getting emails and DMs…

1 Girl, 5 Outfits: Cierra Everette

After getting a lot of great feedback (and submissions) for the new series I wanted to start “1 Girl, 5 Outfits,” I’m back today with another entry. So many girls reached out from the DC area, and I wish Carter and I had time to shoot more people. With such a quick trip and other…


J. Crew New Arrivals

I hope you guys can humor me a little bit here with this post about J. Crew’s new arrivals. I have to give the company a lot of credit. I think they truly took into account brand loyalists’ opinions and feedback about the direction J. Crew had been heading.

There was a period of time when I would walk into J. Crew and walk out empty handed… now that’s near impossible. (In fact, I have to avoid the store altogether when I’m on a tighter budget.)

7 Recipes That Are Better Than Takeout

This post couldn’t have come at a better time for me. I try so hard to avoid ordering takeout. (Except for Saturday nights because I almost always “need” a pizza by then!) With all these apps available, it’s easier than ever to have all kinds of delicious food show up at your door within an hour….


Wrapped in Cashmere

I lovingly joke that the only thing that gets me through the winters is wearing as much cashmere as possible. You guys know that I’m not the biggest spender when it comes to clothes, but I like quality, classic pieces that I can wear year after year. If I’m buying into something trendier, I’d prefer to find a good deal. But for something I know that will last me a while? I’m okay making more of an investment. That’s how I feel about cashmere. Pricier than a normal sweater, for sure, but so much more luxurious!


Affordable Holiday Dresses

For today’s post, I’m rounding up some affordable dresses fit for holiday festivities. I’ve kept all of these dresses under $100, and many are even more on sale with weekend codes. Make sure you check the website’s homepage for a code before you place an order, just in case! Even though it’s early November, the invites are starting to roll in. And it’s always a good idea to have a dress or two on hand for last minute parties (or date nights).


On My Radar

I’m currently in Georgetown for an event with Tuckernuck (it went great), and the weather is so perfect. Whenever I visit, I wonder why on earth I didn’t consider living here after college. I think I was just so ready to leave that I didn’t bother to consider that it might be different to live here…


When You’re Going Through a Break Up

Biiiiiiiiig breath. That’s me talking to myself right now. I’ve dreaded this post, and I’ve also thought about it pretty much every day since the day I broke up with my ex-boyfriend. But, to be totally upfront right now, this is not about him or the details of the breakup. It’s no one’s business, including my…
