what I made.

You wake up, pour a cup of coffee, go to work, do stuff. You don’t always realize what you’re creating unless you start out with the intention to do so. It wasn’t until I spent a #selfcareSaturday cozy in bed, in need of a healthy soup that I realized all the creative potential I’ve been tapping into lately.

What 2015 Taught Me

As I’m sitting here agonizing over what to say in my return to blogging, I realize that it is only getting harder to hone in one one specific topic or excuse for my inconsistency. The truth is, for the past few weeks, I have been happily living my life, missing summer (like ACTUAL summer), consuming my body weight in holiday treats and reminiscing on the adventures of the past year. I have made more trips to the new Primark location at Downtown Crossing than I am willing to admit, snuggled with everyone’s favorite four-legged sidekick Lucy and logged some serious hours at the ballet studio. I have loved every minute of it but now it’s time to reflect on how each of these memories has culminated into the person I’ve become over the past year.

summer things.

I’ve had plenty of adventures as a twenty-six year old. Lunch breaks with friends, date nights on the water and dessert stops in the North End have been rounding out this summer as one of the best to date. While the new experiences have been amazing, the company has been even better.

Some days are just made for lobster bisque at Mooo.

NYC x BOS

If you caught my last post, you know I spent the holiday weekend with my best friend from college in NYC. Per usual, our adventures were the greatest; from Carnegie Hall to Hell’s Kitchen.

See you soon, pretty city!

Resilience Is Golden

One of the smartest things I’ve ever done was slow down. Granted, it wasn’t by choice but my quarter-life crisis sure came in handy and helped me sort out my priorities. It doesn’t sound all that glamorous, and it certainly wasn’t, but I definitely learned how to make it worth my while.

Playing with dresscode

I know it’s been a while but I’ve been busy having so many adventures that I can barely keep up with telling you about them!

It’s not every day you get to mix business & pleasure and after the past week or so, a little red carpet, white wine and firsthand fashion was just what the doctor ordered.

This is what style in the Merrimack Valley looks like!
