Gifts for Her… or is that ‘Gifts for Me?! ? This gift guide is an easy one for me to do since it includes things on my own wishlist. But it’s also overwhelming to create as there are so many great products to consider! For this reason I included many items I already own and use/wear on repeat, because they have proven the test of time. I love them. And of course, I think you and/or your recipient will too!

So you got a pet… In my case it’s a dog. His name is Darby (https://www.instagram.com/darbythepuppy/) and he joined our family a year before the pandemic hit. Needless to say, he is attached to us (and us to him) more than ever. The velcro is reciprocal! This is a gift guide of some of my fave gifts for a pet dog. Continue Reading →

Whew! It’s been awhile since I’ve been over here on the blog. Between selling/buying a home, getting both kids settled into new schools (one a college freshman) and a bunch of other things along the way, I am exhausted to say the least! But I’m also excited/hopeful to getting back to some normalcy as well as blogging again. So let’s get right to it, and talk about Fall Fashion Must Haves!
A continuation from my last post (New York fashion Week 2021 – Part 1), read on for highlights and my favorite looks from Thalé Blanc and Epperson. Also linked to some other standout designers and collections that embody my personal style preference: strong and effortless chic with a feminine edge. Continue Reading →
In what seemed like a blink of an eye, New York Fashion Week 2021 has come and gone. Pre-pandemic, I had attended NYFW for several years, and to say that it felt different this season would be an understatement! But different doesn’t mean bad or worse. In fact, in some ways it was better. Most of the collections showed virtually, or in formats such as presentations and “meet and greets”. Although I will always love the full-on energy and excitement that comes from an in-person runway show, I also appreciated the flexibility and calmness of watching a show virtually or by appointment. In addition, many designers opted to show outside of the official schedule. Love this as it gives us all more time to appreciate the individual collections.
Read on for three standout collections (Nicole Benefield, Negris LeBrum and Fllumaé) that showed for NYFW this month. Continue Reading →
As many of us are sticking to a tighter budget this holiday season, I wanted to make sure I included gifts in a range of prices. These are my Fave Gifts Under $50. All are gifts that I would love to give as well as receive, and I particularly chose these from brands or retailers where I love to shop. Don’t forget, you sometimes have the option to pick up in-store if you’re worried about getting the items before Christmas. Happy Holidays!
