    Rainbow Stripe Cardigan

    T-Minus 4 days until spring break! I am so excited for a week long break as I am in desperate need of a break. If you’re a teacher and haven’t started spring break yet either, I’m sure you feel the same way! So for today’s blog post I’m sharing my first look from my most recent photoshoot with Lauren. As it’s finally feeling more like spring out, the trees are budding and blooming, and Easter is this weekend – hello pastels! – I’m sharing this rainbow stripe long cardigan. I saw variations of this sweater all last year and loved the look. I finally got one of my own this…

    Branch Brook Park – Cherry Blossom Festival

    If you follow me on Instagram then you might have seen in my stories that I went to Branch Brook Park in Newark yesterday to see the cherry blossoms. The large park has a week long cherry blossom festival every spring and today is the last day. Obviously you can go any time while the trees are in bloom to see them – you’re not limited to this one week – but since cherry blossoms only last about 2 weeks you’ve got to be quick about it. Also the festival just means that each day there is some sort of special event to celebrate the cherry blossoms at the park.…

  • Egg & Pepper Stuffed Toast

    Egg & Pepper Stuffed Toast

    Happy Saturday! Weekends are the only time I can make breakfast that isn’t something I’m grabbing and eating in my car on my way to work. So today I’m sharing a delicious breakfast post with you that you can make for breakfast, brunch, whatever. I saw this video on Facebook a long time ago via Chefclub for this Omelette-in-a-hole. I actually forgot that’s what it was called until I searched for the video just now hence why my blog post name is different. It’s similar to the classic eggs in a basket or egg-in-a-hole, but fancier because it’s got peppers, ham, and cheese. First, I cut up some ham – I just…

  • Welch's Fruit Snacks

    Easter Welch’s Fruit Snacks

    I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love fruit snacks. And what’s great about Welch’s Fruit Snacks is that they’re made with real fruit and fruit is the first ingredient. I was about to buy some more fruit snacks from the store when I was lucky enough to be sent two boxes! One regular box and one box of their Easter fruit snacks, which are the same great fruit snacks but in cute Easter shapes! These are so yummy and they’re made with real fruit and are fat free. And some exciting news for you! Welch’s Fruit Snacks has teamed up with LEGOLAND Resort to give you the chance to win a 2-night…

  • Daffodils

    #fbf Daffodils

    My flashback Friday, #fbf, this time around is from just last weekend. I was taking some outfit photos at my parents house and I took a few photos of my mom’s daffodils that have just come out. I love daffodils and the bright yellow is so cheery! My parents get a ton of deer in our yard and they eat everything. But, someone recently told my mom that deer don’t eat yellow flowers – I haven’t looked in to why that is or if it’s true. But so far, so good!

    Faded Lavender Floral Top

    Bright colors and bright florals are a staple for the warmer weather, but I also love muted colors pretty much any time of the year. So it’s no surprise that I love this faded lavender floral top. It is a very lightweight sweater – think thin enough to be a little bit see-through – so it is perfect for this time of year where it’s a bit chilly in the morning and then mild to warm in the afternoon. I wore this faded lavender floral top with dark grey pants and my favorite black mules. When I wore this outfit to work a few days ago I wore this with…

  • Sherlock Holmes & Lucy James

    Sherlock Homes | Lucy James Series

    My book review for you all today is a little bit different than usual. That’s because instead of delving in to one book, I am giving a brief overview of a book series. A while ago I was sent two books from the Sherlock Holmes/Lucy James mystery series – The Crown Jewel Mystery and Remember, Remember. Authors Anna Elliott and Charles Veley (a father/daughter duo) pen the mystery series following Sherlock Holmes and his daughter Lucy James. I hadn’t had a chance to read these two when I was sent the newest story, Die Again, Mr. Holmes. So as soon as I finished reading my last book, which I didn’t exactly love, I…

    Rainbow Varsity Stripe

    Typically when I think of varsity stripes, I think of two horizontal stripes on the sleeve. This lightweight grey top has taken a twist on the classic varsity stripe and made them run down the length of the sleeves and also horizontal. And, these stripes are rainbow, which is so fun! These varsity stripes are raised fabric and not printed, which I love. Top: Express | Leggings: Express | Shoes: Red Dress Boutique | Sunglasses: Quay Australia I paired the top with black leggings and black knit slip on sneakers. I’ve been getting so much more use out of these shoes than I could have imagined! I mean, I knew…

    Floral Embroidered Sweatshirt

    How was everyone’s weekend? Hopefully good! I had a pretty busy weekend and this week is probably going to be just as busy with work and deadlines I have to meet. Not fun, but my spring break is just 9 work days away! You guys know I love comfy clothes and florals so it should come as no surprise that I absolutely love this grey, lightweight sweatshirt with coral pink and green embroidered flowers. I love the way the floral design pops off the grey sweatshirt. And the small embroidered flower at the back under the neck is the cutest detail.
