    #fbf Fallen Leaf

    Happy Friday! This week hasn’t been too bad, but I’m definitely ready for the weekend. I’m all about the fall foliage – I’m actually kind of sad that most of the leaves have fallen from the trees here. It’s such a short window of time that the leaves are pretty fall colors on the branches before they’re all gone! Anyway, as I was saying I’m all about the fall foliage and falling leaves, but for today’s flashback Friday #fbf I thought I’d share a tropical leaf. I took this photo last October on my parents deck. A leaf from their plumeria plant fell and landed right in between the two…

    Fall in Historic Bethlehem

    Last weekend I met up with my friend and her baby in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania to walk around, eat lunch, and catch up. It’s a halfway point for us and two years ago we walked around the Christmas market at the steel stacks in Bethlehem. This time we met up in the downtown, Main St. area which just so happens to be in historic Bethlehem. I only took a few photos, but I thought I’d still share them. The weather was perfect and everything was so nicely decorated for fall. When we walked down the side, residential streets pretty much every home was decorated so cute for fall! So many pretty…

    Compact Laundry Items

    My townhouse is a great size for my brother and me, but storage space is limited. Today I thought I’d share some great space saving items for the laundry.  There are some things you never think about – like where would I put my laundry baskets when they’re empty? Where am I going to hang my clothes that can’t go in the dryer? When I started shopping for my place back in the summer, I knew I had to get compact items so they would be easy to store and get out of the way, but were also functional. My washer and dryer are in a closet upstairs between the…

    Goo Goo Dolls – Dizzy Up the Girl Anniversary Tour

    Happy Friday! If you saw my blog post last week rounding up a few of my favorite Goo Goo Dolls songs then you know I went to see them in concert this week. To make a long story short, Goo Goo Dolls were one of my favorite bands in high school. I loved their music and frontman Johnny Rzeznik. High school was an okay time for me – I wouldn’t say they were the best years but they weren’t miserable either. I would say my high school years were typical and Goo Goo Dolls definitely were my go-to music when I wasn’t listening to NSYNC, Justin Timberlake, and other pop…

    #fbf Leaf

    Two Octobers ago I went to a Harry Potter festival in Pennsylvania with some friends. It was a fun outing, but I remember the weather not being the best and it was super crowded so it was hard to enjoy. When I got to my friend’s car to escape the madness of the festival and to head out of the area to find food where the wait wouldn’t be over an hour, the perfect fall leaf fell on me. Well almost perfect – there were a few holes. It’s the quintessential leaf shape and color! So this flashback post is just to wish you all a happy fall! Here’s hoping…

    Ed Sheeran at Metlife Stadium

    This past Friday night I went to see Ed Sheeran in concert at Metlife Stadium. I’ve long loved his music, but this was the first time I saw him in concert and he was amazing live! I’ve seen him perform at awards shows on TV and late night shows etc. and I’m always in awe of how he can perform all on his own basically with just his guitar and loop pedal. I wanted to give a little recap of the evening so keep reading if you want to hear about it! My friend and I bought tickets just a few weeks ago for this show. We bought tickets in…

    Community Spirit to Help the Environment

    I’m going to preface this post by saying I totally believe that climate change is real and that we need to do more to save the planet. With that being said, I could do a lot more on my part to help facilitate change. Glasdon has thought of a list of ways that people can get in the community spirit and effectively help the environment. It’s a fact that we are using up our resources, polluting, overfishing, and more. It’s our responsibility as inhabitants on this earth to work together to find sustainable ways of living. Glasdon believes: “Social responsibility does not fall on the shoulders of just one, or few…

    Modilize Launch Party

    Happy Wednesday! This week has been so busy that it feels much later in the week than Wednesday, but at least we’re one day closer to the weekend. So last Saturday during New York Fashion Week (NYFW) I went in to the city for the Modilize Launch Party. Modilize is a soon to be released app for online shopping that is going to streamline the shopping experience for women. I’m excited for it to officially launch! In the meantime though, I had a great time at their NYFW launch party. I arrived in the city about an hour before the event started, so I walked around the neighborhood a little and…

    New Home Tips

    If you’ve been following my blog for a while then you know I recently became a homeowner. I’m loving my place but there are definitely a few things that I want to change and there are also a few things that I wish the former owners had told me. It’s a bit annoying, but there’s nothing I can do about it now except take care of what needs taking care of. However, if you are renting instead of buying then you have a lot more options than I do in terms of holding others accountable for things that need to get done in your place. For me as a townhouse…

    Getting Ready for Fall

    Fall has quickly become my favorite season in the past few years. I don’t know why considering I associate fall with summer vacation being over and having to go back to work. However, there’s just something about fall that I love. The crisp, cool air. Apple cider donuts. Breaking out the cozy sweaters. Oh and ushering in the holiday season, of course. Since I’m in a new space (my townhouse), I picked up a few fall decor things. I didn’t want to go overboard with decorating, plus I don’t have the money to! So it was just a few things. First, I got this super cute leaf candle holder from…
