On My Radar

I flew to Nantucket yesterday morning for a girls’ trip with Ashley and then, sadly, flew back home. Something came up and so we decided to postpone the trip. I was thankful for fog-free conditions so each of us could get on our respective flights home problem-free. Can’t really share more, but I didn’t want…

Packing Lists

Travel Packing Essentials

I think a good 40% of my stress around traveling revolves around packing. (Another 50% is usually from having to leave my pups behind!) I am, for sure, a homebody by nature. I like to be in my space with all of my things. A mantra I repeat to myself over and over again is…

I BOUGHT (and love!) A JUMPSUIT

I was in the city a few weeks ago for two meetings. I try to coordinate it so everything I do in one day is in relatively the same area (or at least easy to take a subway to/from) so it’s easier to get around. My worst nightmare is something in the West Village followed…

Enjoying Breakfast Outside, Thanks to ZYRTEC®

Thank you ZYRTEC® for sponsoring this post! I have been pretty open about my feeling overwhelmed by the transition from Connecticut to New Jersey. Living with my boyfriend has been the best, but we had so many troubles with the apartment that I thought I was going to lose my mind at more than one point. Thankfully…

6 Summer Salads to Eat All Season

I LOVE a great salad in the summer. One year while I was home for the summer, my mom and I decided that we were going to make salads at home every day and perfect our recipes. For some reason, I feel like salads always taste better when other people make them. But they also taste…

Summer Spirit

If fall lasted longer than two weeks, it would be my favorite season. There really are only a handful of days that are perfectly crisp, where the evening sun hangs on for a few extra minutes, and the leaves are gold but still have life in them. But since fall’s so fleeting, I think I…

My Amazon Cart

I have had Amazon Prime since I was in college and I have remained a member ever since. There have been years where I didn’t utilize it enough, but now that I’m in Hoboken, I find myself placing orders all the time. One thing I really miss about Connecticut was being able to easily drive…

On My Radar

Hello Friday! I don’t know if it’s something that happens in other parts of the country, but Fridays in/around NYC are dubbed “Summer Fridays” and things shut down early for the weekend. We kind of did this at my old job, but I know some of my friends have the entire afternoon off or they’re…

Beaches

Gingham Bikini

During our quick visit to Nantucket a couple of weeks ago, we had one perfectly warm afternoon that was fit for a trip to the beach. Packing a bathing suit at all was wishful thinking, but it appears that it brought us good luck with the weather. It would be such a shame to visit…
