The past few weeks have been nothing but a whirlwind. With our Vegas weekend, being in the last phase of our small remodel and working on a new blog layout (yay!), life has been a bit crazy. And sometimes, to power through the crazy, you simply need a hint of normalcy. T and I have… Read More baked spaghetti recipe + staying sane.
This past weekend we ventured to Las Vegas for four days to spend days at the spa and nights at clubs with bottle service. Not. Ok, we were really there for a convention for my husband’s job. A whole other side of Vegas where business goes down and hosted parties happen at night. I mean,… Read More fremont street experience – las vegas.
A typical spring in the Midwest has mood swings. It can easily go from 65 degrees and sunny on Monday to 32 degrees with a chance of snow on Tuesday.

But, with a snow storm rolling through the Midwest this weekend after more than a week of above 50 degree weather, there’s no better reminder that winter is sticking around. Since… Read More all about that coat.
When it comes to accessories, I’m known to keep it pretty simple. My overall collection mostly consists of cozy scarves, warm winter hats and a few statement necklaces, but 6 out of 7 days a week, you’ll find me wearing a dainty gold choker and maybe my favorite pair of Marc Jacobs disc earrings. Maybe. So when BaubleBar… Read More sugarfix by baublebar.
What better way to celebrate a new kitchen than hosting a small dinner party? Ok, I can’t reveal our kitchen update just yet since the small details are not finished, but I promise it will be soon! In the meantime, I’ve been slightly obsessed with Asian-inspired salads and decided it would be a great recipe to try… Read More cabbage + kale asian salad.
There’s nothing better than New York Fashion Week to remind you that fashion truly is an art.
