What I Loved in October, 2020: Autumn Foliage

A collection of things I loved in October, from beauty products and fashion to entertainment and everything in between. I decided to move back to the East Coast for many reasons, but one of the biggest was that I missed the four seasons.

Because I grew up around it, and witnessed it every year, it was never a big deal to me. It wasn’t until a few years ago that I actually started to miss it. The other day Billy and I wereRead More →

A collection of things I loved in September, from beauty products and fashion to entertainment and everything in between. Sure, the streets of New York City look a lot different than they did pre-Covid, but spending a few days here (in couldn’t-ask-for-better- weather) has been a completely different experience. Billy and I have been able to get around the city a lot easier since it’s less crowded than what we’re used to.  Whenever I’m vacationing in the city I make a point of stopping in my favorite candy store, Sugarfina. (I love their colorful confections so much, I created a V-Day charcuterie board a fewRead More →
