On My Radar

I had a lot to be grateful for this week. New Jersey moved into a new phase where things are definitely more open. I know some states/cities haven’t been great about mask-usage but it is such a relief to go into a store and see absolutely everyone complying, even in the parking lot. Tomorrow, Mike…


Backyard Oasis with Serena and Lily

Mike and I have really put a big emphasis on getting our yard in tip top shape for the summer. We’re (obviously) home a lot now and it’s been a DREAM to have a backyard. While it’s pretty tiny, it’s actually a very functional space. We are likely not going to be in this house…

Finding the Why

This post is going to seem a little rambly. To be honest, it’s been on my mind for a while (at least six months) and now it definitely feels like it’s coming to a head. I have been trying to figure out the Why. Not just “the why” but my Why. I think I had a…


The Perfect Button Up

If you take one peek into my closet, one thing becomes abundantly apparent: I love a good button up. Over the years I have honed in a few great ones. (My favorite is one from Joe Fresh, which apparently is no longer in the United States.) I have a bunch of different styles depending on…

Cute Face Masks

Wearing face masks seemed like such an abstract idea back in March. (I even had someone block me on Instagram for even suggesting it– seems like a lifetime ago!) From what I’m gathering from Instagram DMs, it really seems geo-specific on whether people are actually wearing face masks. Up here in New Jersey, as things are…



Books I’ve Read & Recommend by Black Authors

A highly requested post has been books I recommend by Black authors. I am sharing my favorites here that I’d recommend reading. As I’m committing to reading more about anti-racism and even more Black stories, I’m sure you’ll see even more recommendations in my monthly roundups. But for now, this is just what I’ve already…


Diary No. 33

Back with another round up of iPhone snaps over the past few weeks! This was such a fun sewing project. I’ve had this tote for years. (I can’t find the exact style, but this is super close, just bigger.) I sewed a gingham liner for it and it feels like a whole new bag. I…


On My Radar

As I write this, I have a to-go latte from our neighborhood cafe next to me. My office is super dark, even though it’s only 2 pm, because a rainstorm is rolling over us. Teddy and Hamilton are flopped under my chair– their hair curled up from running around in the rain. Just wanted to…


Linen for Summer

Remember when I said I would wear this top in every color and print imaginable? I’ve stayed true to my word. I can’t get enough of the silhouette. I find it to be incredibly flattering and super comfortable. I loved this linen-esque version. It’s light and airy, perfect for summer. I’m wearing it with dark…
