Comfy Summer Style

Now that summer is here (and we’ve had the best weather since I’ve lived here), we’ve really been taking advantage of the weekends because of the Mr’s training schedule (he’s gone during the week) – baseball games, picnics, beach days, concerts in the park… All this summer fun calls for simple, comfy pieces that can […]

Sound Check: Johnnyswim

I just discovered Johnnyswim this week, a fantastic husband-and-wife duo (Abner Ramirez and Amanda Sudano) and had to share them with you. This is some of the most wonderful music I have encountered in a long time, and it was tough to settle on which one of their gems to share. “Adelina” is just achingly good, a […]

Java Tea Launch

This past weekend, we were invited to celebrate the launch of Java Tea, a brilliant tea company a few dear friends have been working tirelessly on for years. We were so honored to be invited to the launch party, which was almost single-handedly pulled off by my one of my besties, and filled to the brim […]

Bath Time

A few weeks ago my dear sister-in-love was looking to redecorate their upstairs bathroom, which she wants to pull double duty for both guests and kids (when their little one is old enough to use it).

Greatness is Within

27-year-old Deontay Wilder is a currently undefeated heavyweight boxer, and is the only American to win a medal for boxing in the Summer Olympics. But before he ever discovered boxing, his baby girl Naeiya was born with severe spina bifida, and was never expected to walk. He abandoned dreams of becoming a professional athlete, working several jobs […]

Sound Check: One Works Better

Have you ever watched the series Nashville? It has become one of my favorites, and not only because it stars Connie Britton (you Friday Night Lights fans know exactly what I’m talking about), but also because the music is absolutely AMAZING. And it’s all brilliantly performed by the actors themselves. “One Works Better” is a gem, […]
