    Cranberry Apple Pecan Wild Rice

    I’ve been holding on to this recipe post until we were closer to fall since it is so perfect for fall. Well, the weather is still on the warm side most days but we’re getting in to the second half of September so I thought I might as well share it now! This is one of those recipes from Pinterest that are 100% a success. It is so good! I’ve made it multiple times last fall and winter and I can’t wait to make it again this fall. I used this recipe and followed it. The only note I have is that I cooked it for a little less time…

    Brushmarl Dress

    You might be wondering what exactly brushmarl is. It’s actually exactly what it sounds like. A lightweight marled dress with a brushed finish. I’m a big fan of the Lou & Grey pieces that LOFT carries. They are the softest clothes! They make amazing loungewear, but I’ve gotten some great pieces from them that could be casual or work wear appropriate. This brushmarl dress is one of those pieces. I can wear it with sandals out and about or to work with wedges or flats and some accessories. I wore this grey button down dress to work with a Kendra Scott necklace in my birthstone. Love the split neck and…

    Octagonal Hoops

    Happy Wednesday! We’re halfway through the week and it’s been a busy one and will continue to be so it’s just a quick blog post from me today. Months ago I talked about (either on here or on Instagram Stories) that I was looking for a pair of hoop earrings. Dainty, not chunky, but medium to large in size. I bought , what I thought, were really pretty hoops from Francesca’s, but they broke! They broke the first time I tried to wear them. So I was on the hunt for a new pair of earrings and I came across these unique ones from Baublebar. The octagonal shape is so…

    Olive Button Shorts + Strappy Bodysuit

    Often times I put together an outfit in my mind and just hope that it will look as good in real life as it does in my head. Usually it works out, in my opinion, and this outfit turned out better than I imagined! I paired my pull on olive shorts with button detailing and a black ribbed bodysuit with a strappy back. I love the way this bodysuit fits. It is so flattering and isn’t too skin tight and uncomfortable in the least. I also love the straps and square neckline. So on trend! And since it’s a bodysuit it’s so easy to just wear the pull-on shorts with…

    Warm Saffron Smocked Jumpsuit

    Monday again and this time a full week of work since last week was just a 4 day week. I’m hoping to get the ball rolling on my multiple home projects this week so I can start to see an end in sight – even if it’s in the distance. I don’t mind if things take a while to get done as long as I know they’re getting done, if you that makes sense. The weather here has been really nice. Not hot, but not cold. Just really pleasant. I think we’re supposed to get some rain this week, but hopefully it’s nothing too bad. This smocked jumpsuit is the…

  • Chef Yang's 46 - Sesame Chicken


    Chef Yang 46

    A few weeks ago I was invited to dine at Chef Yang 46 , a gourmet Chinese restaurant in Clifton, NJ. I was sent a tasting menu to give me an idea of my choices for appetizers, entrees, etc and I enlisted a friend to go with me for dinner. We went last Sunday and when we were seated menus were placed on our table. Like regular menus. So when the waiter came for our drink order, I asked if we were supposed to order from the tasting menu I was sent and he said I could or I could order anything I want. Since the tasting menu looked like a…

  • Pandora Bracelet - Filled with Romance Charm


    Pandora – Filled with Romance Charm

    For years and year I’ve seen people, coworkers, and friends, buy and wear Pandora bracelets and charms and while I thought they were pretty I never had a desire to get one for myself. I’m not sure why exactly I decided I actually did want one, but this summer I suddenly was like “Hmm I actually do really want one”. So when my mom asked me what I wanted for my birthday in August I said a Pandora bracelet. We went to the mall one day and I picked out a bracelet and 1 charm. Well actually, let me rewind. A week earlier we were at the outlets and I…
