    Restyled: Lace Cold Shoulder + Grey Boho Satchel

    Last year I shared this square shoulder lace cold shoulder top on the blog with distressed jeggings. I restyled it last weekend with leggings and my light grey Moda Luxe boho satchel bag that my cousin gifted me. Top: Vici | Leggings: Nordstrom Rack | Bag: Moda Luxe | Shoes: Red Dress Boutique This was the perfect bag to take with me out and about last week. I was out all day running around so I had the obvious things in it like my wallet and phone, but also a book I’ve been reading, and a sweater. It’s been my go-to bag lately when I’ve got a bunch of places…

    Front Facing Hoops

    If you follow me on Instagram, then you might’ve seen my stories where I talked about how I’ve been on a hoop earrings kick lately. You may also recognize these earrings from my stories. I was looking for hoops recently. Ones that are lightweight, not too big, not too small. I came across these earrings that aren’t your typical hoops. They are round and have crystals all the way around, but the difference is they have a regular post and the hoops face front. Earrings: Baublebar (similar) | Denim Jacket: LOFT | Tee: Aerie | Leggings: Nordstrom Rack I put this outfit together in my mind a few days prior…

    Why spring is the best time to make your next house move

      Springtime is just so inspiring, isn’t it?  Bursts of bright blossom, the latest looks in the stores and a mood of rebirth and opportunity everywhere around you. And it’s no surprise at all then that so many people choose this season to plan or launch their next house move. Pexels What are the reasons you might want to relocate? Maybe you’ve outgrown your current  place, or you want to be nearer your family or work – there are many reasons why anyone might want to move. You could be upsizing, joining a partner in the next town or city, or possibly even want to move interstate. Perhaps you’ve been…

  • Pasta Melanzane

    Pasta with Vegetables

    Pasta Melanzane is essentially pasta with eggplant. And while I love pasta and eggplant, my mom and I wanted to add some other vegetables to the dish so that’s why I’ve simply called this “Pasta with Vegetables”. Not very creative, I know, but oh well. The recipe is really easy. I cut up eggplant, zucchini, grape tomatoes, and mushrooms. I put the eggplant in the pan first to start cooking and then added in the zucchini and mushrooms. Once those started to soften a bit, I added in the tomatoes. I cook it down and let the tomatoes start to burst. Meanwhile, I cooked the pasta (al dente because you’re…

  • Coach Reversible Flap Crossbody

    Coach Reversible Flap Crossbody

    What’s better than a nice, good quality crossbody bag than to get two in one? When I was shopping for a new crossbody bag back in the fall I came across this Coach one that was small and classic. And then I realized it had a reversible flap and I was sold! One side is black and one side is white. All you have to do is unsnap the back and flip it around. It’s hard to describe, but it only unsnaps on one end and the other is still stitched to the bag itself so when you want to use the other side you unsnap it and flap it…

    Striped Short Bell Sleeves

    Short bell sleeves always make for fun tops. It’s like belling out the sleeves instantly dresses up the short sleeve top. This striped top has billowy bell sleeves and it’s a a sweater material so it’s perfect for work. Top: LOFT | Pants: LC Lauren Conrad via Kohl’s | Shoes: Target The stripes in this sweater look black, but in person they’re actually a dark blue which is a nice change since most classic striped tops are black and white. Overall, this top is a great staple piece for your closet. It’s great to wear with dark wash jeans or black pants like I did here for work!

  • Holland Ridge Farms - Tulips

    Tulips @ Holland Ridge Farms

    I’m a bit late with this post as tulip season is pretty much over, but better late than never! 2 weeks ago I went down to Holland Ridge Farms, which you got a glimpse of when I posted my striped midi jumpsuit, to see the tulips. I saw a bunch of photos of the farm online and wanted to see it for myself just before the season was over. It’s supposedly the largest tulip farm on the east coast, so I had to go! There were a ton of people there despite going on a week day and I should’ve worn closed toe shoes since it was pretty dusty, but…

    Photocopier Woes

    If you work in an office or school like me or anywhere with a copy machine I’m sure you know the all too familiar feeling of frustration when the photocopier is just not working. It tends to always happen at the worst possible time, naturally. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to make copies for my students and the copier jams. Then, you follow all the steps on the little screen to try to unjam the copier and maybe it works. For a minute. Another copy will print out and then jam again. If you’re lucky, it’ll unjam for good (for good meaning until you’re done with your…
