    May 2020 Favorites

    Well if 2020 hasn’t already been bad enough, May has just been another dumpster fire! Things are absolutely crazy right now. We’re still getting through the pandemic and the country is literally and figuratively on fire. I hope you are all staying safe through all of these hard times. For lighter new, I have a round-up of things I loved in May. First, did you watch the first season of Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist? I loved the show and I’m waiting to hear if it’s picked up for a 2nd season on NBC. I hope so! During the season finale, the cast sang “American Pie” and I was obsessed with their rendition…

    #fbf Martha’s Vineyard

    Sharing another flashback Friday today. So many people have been sharing throwbacks lately, back when times were simpler and more carefree. With it about to be Memorial Day Weekend, things are feeling extra strange. Normally, the holiday weekend is the unofficial kickoff to summer. Lots of barbecues, people going to the beach, opening up their pools etc. But, here in NJ, we’re still pretty much in lockdown even though very few restrictions have been eased. Beaches are open now, but social distancing has to be practiced and capacity is limited. State parks are open, but again the same restrictions apply. Non-essential retail is allowed to reopen for curbside pickup only…

    Monday Motivation

    For those of you who don’t know, I’m a teacher full-time. I’ve been teaching online during this pandemic since March 18. I can’t believe it’s been almost 2 months! It’s really flown by, but at the same time it’s getting really tiring. I’m tired and I’m sure you’re tired too of the quarantine and the unknown. Sunday night blues aren’t exactly the same as they used to be when I was going into work, but there’s still that “Ugh I have to wake up early tomorrow for work.” On the upside, being “at work” every day from 7:30-4:00 has made my days go by fast and has kept me from getting…

    April 2020 Favorites

    Another month over, can you believe it? I can’t believe we’ve been in quarantine for about 6 weeks already. Sometimes it feels like the time has gone by really fast and other times it feels like forever. It is hard to believe that the whole month of April has gone by though. For this month’s favorites, I have a lot of tv related things since I’m watching a lot more these days. First, I was obsessed with the Food Network Tournament of Champions. It was so fun to watch! It’s like March Madness but with famous chefs.   Next, I have been watching Hawaii Five-O for the past 10 years and early…

    Calm AF Kit

    I’ve always had some anxiety on some level over the years, but with the pandemic, it is at a whole other level and I think a lot of you can probably relate. As luck would have it, My Little Magic Shop reached out to me and asked if I would like their Calm AF Kit during this stressful time. Of course, I said yes! The Calm AF kit comes with: A Larvikite Bracelet which is a grounding and protective stone. It brings you calming energy, bouncing negative energy off you, and you can charge it with intention. A Palo Santo Stick which has magical cleansing properties. It brings positive energy…

    Structured Canvas Crossbody Bag

    When I saw this structured canvas crossbody bag and it’s insanely affordable price, I ordered it right away. It’s the perfect light colored bag for spring and summer. When we can actually go somewhere that requires a bag! I love the size of this one and the beige canvas and tan/cognac trim. You can hold it by the hand with the top handle or attach the shoulder strap to make it a shoulder bag or crossbody bag. Bag: Vici | Top: Old Navy | Jeans: LC Lauren Conrad via Kohl’s | Shoes: Steve Madden via DSW (here) I wore the bag with a multicolored striped long sleeve tee, jeans, and…

    Moving Tips

    It wasn’t exactly planned, but I moved twice in two years. I know. It’s a lot. And if you’ve moved before I’m sure you can agree that moving is a pain in the butt. When you first think about moving, there’s so much you forget about or don’t consider. Your first thought about the actual moving process is probably that you need to pack up all of your stuff. No big deal. But you might not consider just how many boxes you’ll need and what’s the best way to organize your things? And how much bubble wrap do you need for fragile things? There’s so much to think about! So…

    Baked by Melissa Delivery

    Have you ever had the little tiny cupcakes from Baked by Melissa? They make all different kinds of little tiny cupcakes that are literally like bite size pieces of heaven. I first went to the shop and tried their cupcakes years ago – I believe shortly after college and that’s a while ago. I think my friend told me about them because she had heard of the shop and so one day when we were in the city (New York City) we went. Anyway, I remember them being so delicious and Tie Dye being my favorite – still is! Since that day that I first tried them, multiple locations have…

    #fbf Flowering Tree Lined Street

    We made it through another work from home week! How are you all doing? One of the things keeping me sane since I can’t go anywhere is going for walks when the weather is cooperating. I see people out on most days, walking or biking, when I go out but everyone keeps a really good distance from each other and people occasionally wave or say hi. One of the streets in my town is lined with flowering trees and when I was walking by early in the month I saw that the trees had started to bloom. I had to stop and take a photo because I thought it was…

    Baby Boutique Gift Ideas

    Before you get any ideas, no, I’m not expecting a baby anytime soon! But I have quite a few friends with kids and I love looking at all the cute baby clothes when I buy them gifts. There are so many adorable outfits out there and seriously some things that I’m like “Um, I wish that came in my size!” I find myself buying baby gifts a lot. Whether it’s a friend having a baby, a holiday gift, birthday gift, or just because. I feel like I’m buying baby clothes all the time. One of the things I always consider when I’m buying clothing items for my baby friends is…
