Long time no see! After a crazy couple of weeks, I really needed a break from blogging. I’ve also been thinking a lot about what direction I want to go in with this blog. I haven’t made any decisions yet and I may not end up changing anything, but I’m doing a lot of brainstorming of what kind of blog I want to have and what kind of content I want to create. That being […]

I’m having a little love affair… That is, with a clothing item. Just to be clear. You may remember this top from my Valentine’s Day beauty post, and I’m happy to say I’m just as in love with it now as I was then. This black top is my new favorite item in my closet. The off-the-shoulder look is everywhere right now, and even though I am sometimes a little self-conscious of my broad shoulders (thanks, […]

Hello and happy Monday! I didn’t actually plan this post, but as I was whipping up dinner last week, I thought it might be fun to share with you my favorite, super-easy pasta dish that I make as soon as the weather starts to warm up (though, to be honest, we eat this all winter long, too).  I think this took me a total of twenty minutes to make – and that’s mostly due to […]

Happy Friday! Hope you are all doing well on this beautiful Friday morning☺I am sooo ready for the weekend! After an extremely busy month launching a big work project, I feel like I can finally relax and recharge a little. What’s more, we have ZERO plans this weekend (I was so busy last weekend that I didn’t even have a minute to post my Friday Favorites!), and I could not be happier. Of course, that […]

coffee / dessert / food / recipe

Coffee…Ice cream…Drooling yet? Well, just you wait. Today’s recipe is probably my easiest one yet (only two ingredients!), but that does not mean it is any less delicious. Two ingredients might seem like something that’s not even worth turning into a post, but I disagree. Affogato one the easiest and most elegant desserts out there. And it’s Italian, so you’ll feel extra fancy!Ready to get started?First, brew some coffee.You can make it as strong or weak […]

Happy Hump-day! Graduation + wedding season is just around the corner, which means friends and relatives will be flying in to join the celebration. While it’s great to have everyone come together, sometimes it’s not so great to have a million people (or two) staying at your place. Usually this comes down to lack of preparation and then feeling embarrassed by your messy place or annoyed by your guests’ snoring while sleeping on the floor next […]

As I mentioned yesterday, Conrad and I had a lovely dinner at one of our favorite local spots, La Luz. It was gloriously warm and sunny out (these photos were taken around 6:30 pm!), so we headed straight for patio. First things first, chips and salsa! They do an amazing salsa bar that you can pick and choose from. The spicy beer-infused one is my favorite – I’m not sure what it’s called but it’s […]
