    Max’s Bagels

    A few days ago, the familiar “on this day” photo memory collage popped up on my iPhone. This particular one was dedicated entirely to Max’s adventures in bagel-making. In the early days of quarantine, as we watched all of our spring and summer trips get canceled one after the other, we turned to the only […]

  • DIY Display Pedestal for Under $100

    You’ve probably seen these art display pedestals gracing minimalist-chic interior posts on Instagram. As someone who has fully embraced the neutral, minimalist aesthetic in every way, these clean, modern columns instantly grabbed my attention. I’ve seen them used to display everything from plants and floral arrangements to intricate sculptures. I loved the idea of moving […]

    Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas

    I’m not a proponent of super couple-y Valentine’s Day traditions. Max and I religiously avoided going out to restaurants on vday even in the pre-pandemic era, and we don’t exchange gifts on this holiday. That said, I’m all for an excuse to treat yourself (or bullying your partner into treating you haha), especially after the […]

    Why You Should Be Using CBD Skincare

    We’ve all heard of CBD, or cannabidiol, the non-psychoactive derivative of the cannabis plant. CBD has been touted as a treatment for a variety of ailments, including anxiety, pain, and even seizures. You should know that I am a huge fan of CBD oil. I keep this tincture from Charlotte’s Web on hand and take […]

    Artificial Plants That Don’t Look Fake, Faux Real

    Adding greenery to your indoor décor is a universally-loved way to give your room a fresh, warm feeling. While I’m relatively adept at growing things outside (quarantine herb garden anyone?), my green thumb doesn’t extend indoors. I can’t even keep a succulent alive without nature’s help in providing adequate sunlight and rain. I am, however, […]

    Sun Seeker: My Favorite Resort 2021 Looks

    One thing I think we can universally agree upon is that we could all use a vacation right about now. Even though I have no plans to venture somewhere warm anytime soon, I find myself perusing resort wear items and dreaming of sitting on a beach with a (strong) drink in hand. If you’re lucky […]

  • New Year's Eve Makeup Inspo

    Sparkly New Year’s Eve Makeup Inspo

    Yesterday I shared my favorite NYE outfit ideas, but no New Year’s Eve look is complete without proper glam. Similar to how I feel about NYE attire (gimme all the sequins), I think the accompanying makeup should be bold and sparkly. I mean, ya can’t wear this makeup everyday, so leave your “me-but-better” vibes in […]

    A Minimalist, Scandinavian-Inspired Christmas Table

    For the past few years, I’ve gone with a glam, all-white themed Christmas tablescape. This year, I felt like I wanted to switch things up a bit and go with a more minimalist approach. I love to do different types of décor themes every couple of years, and I have boxes upon boxes of Christmas […]

  • Female-Owned, Independent Labels to Shop This Holiday Season

    Earlier this week I published my annual holiday gift guides, and this year I focused heavily on finding products that you wouldn’t see on every other influencer’s guides. The truth is, most gift guides floating around this time of year are limited to products that an influencer can link through an affiliate network, often Reward […]
