It’s almost July, can you believe it!? Sometimes, when I wake up alone in the dark depths of the night, wondering why my boyfriend A won’t leave his pregnant wife for me, I like to reflect on the brevity of time and the importance of seizing the day. …

How to Make Moving Look Good

I think one of the major facts of life (besides death and taxes) is that nobody likes moving. It’s terrible! The few times I’ve moved in my life it’s always been a reminder that I own way too many maternity blankets and I have nowhere near enough boxes or patience to get them all packed. It’s so tempting to just throw everything away!

With the summer season literally around the corner, I think most of us are ready to break out those ice cold drinks in tall glasses while we lounge by the poolside. I mean honestly, is there anything better than sipping a margarita on the rocks while soaking up the sun?? Personally I like to take my drinks game to the next level by focusing on the details. A mini umbrella, cute straw or even slices of fruit are so easy to…

Color me Sweet: DIY Edible Nail Art

My sister, Primrose, and I are OBSESSED with painting our nails. I don’t know if it’s the addicting fumes or just how elegant our hands look, but we get together at least four times a week to have a mani/pedi sesh. The best part is Prim is an absolute master at nail art. I timed her once and she was able to accurately recreate the Birth of Venus on my thumb in two minutes and with only three colors. Of course…
