Stylish Travel Tech Accessories






Since I travel a lot, it's really important that I always remember to bring all my chargers, cords and other tech essentials. I only got my new iPhone less than a year ago and the battery is already shot, so I've started carrying this Chic Buds charger (c/o). I also make sure to put everything in a protective, yet stylish case. Next on my wish list is one of those smartphone wallets, which makes it easy to have your phone and a few cards on hand.

Emmys Red Carpet

Tuesday, August 26, 2014





Reds and whites/neutrals were a trend at this year's primetime Emmys. I love the spaghetti strap halter necks of Taylor Schilling and Sarah Hyland's dresses and the classic silhouettes of Heidi Klum and Anna Chlumsky's gowns. There's also always a few unique styles that stand out to me such as Anna Gunn and January Jones' ensembles. 



Who was your favorite?

Game Day Ensemble

Game Day Ensemble





The NFL season kicks off in less than a week and I'm already planning what I'm going to wear every Sunday to watch the games. I love that the football jerseys make such great foundations for preppy, fall outfits. A t-shirt or long sleeve shirt under a jersey with skinny jeans and boots is a classic combination. I always add a cute cross body bag or wristlet if I'm going to the game or watching it at a bar. Lastly, I never forget a little sparkle with some studs or a cute bracelet.

Finally Back!

Thursday, August 21, 2014














Finally got back last night from what seemed like the longest business trip ever! I spent five days at the beautiful Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes, California. Thankfully I got to spend a little time enjoying the resort before a few long days of working at our company's event. I went to a yoga class, swam in the pool and walked around the property to snap some pictures of the gorgeous scenery -- probably one of my favorite views ever.

In My Travel Cosmetic Bag

In My Travel Cosmetic Bag







I'm going on a business trip this weekend for five days. I've been traveling for work for the past four years and I've learned my lesson in terms of being prepared with anything and everything you'll need. I always stock up on the travel size toiletries and I've bought quite a few mini versions of makeup as well, not only to try them out, but because they're easy to keep in your bag all the time in case you forget anything from your real makeup bag. Check out my recommendations above and let me know if you have any suggestions of things I didn't think of!

1. I know it's still summer, but this soup from Barefoot Contessa could work year round. 

2. Remember when I featured Chicks & Stones in this blog post? Well their online store has finally launched! 

3. I'm headed here next week for a work trip. How gorgeous is this view?

4. I spend way too much going out for coffee, especially in the summer. I just discovered these delicious iced coffee K Cups...so good!

5. Last night was the Patriots first preseason game and that means football is officially back! I'm already scouting recipes for game day snacks and these mixed nuts look so good and so easy.



What a busy week! Sorry to be absent from the blog but I had a work event on Wednesday and I'm getting ready for another one in California next week. I'm also headed to the Cape this weekend with some friends for a quick getaway and I am so ready for it! Above are some reads and ideas for your Friday. 


Have a great weekend!

Apartment Wish List


Tray 


We're nearing 1 year in our apartment in Boston and I'm craving a few new things to spruce up the place. West Elm is having a great sale right now and I would love these red/orange toss pillows or a new duvet cover. One Kings Lane also has some cute things like this tray or these agate blue coasters

I used to love Laguna Beach and The Hills. This slideshow covers all the best fashion during that time, like flare jeans and scarf headbands. 

Some great picks in this Allure beauty lineup. I want to try the Urban Decay blush/bronzer palette!

Has anyone tried the weird flavors of Lays chips? I'd probably try the bacon mac and cheese one. 

Thoughts every woman has had while shopping? This is me on so many levels! 

Does anyone else love the passion tea lemonade from Starbucks? Well now you can make your own at home!




Happy Friday!
