Charleston City Guide.

I have been obsessed with Charleston for a long time now. I probably visit at least every other month. It started with that press trip several years ago and I have been hooked ever since, even convincing (well, helping to convince… it wasn’t a lot of work) my parents to move to John’s Island.  So now it really is my second home, in a sense. I just love this city so much. If you’ve never been, definitely add it to your list. It’s the absolute perfect weekend getaway.. the flight is just over an hour out of New York! My ... Read more

Brooklyn Navy Yard: Come for Wegman’s, stay for so much more

  What else is there to do after you’ve shopped at Brooklyn’s new favorite supermarket? A lot. Photo: Meredith Craig de Pietro Will the thrill of Wegman’s ever cease? After all, it is just a grocery store. (Please put your weapons down and hear me out.) Yes, the insane cheese selection, the Italian pizza oven, the decent supermarket sushi section, the local grass-fed beef, the cannoli-for-one, the lobster steamer, and the affordable prices are all great. No one is disputing that. But to make the trek to the Brooklyn Navy Yard, or to take advantage of the free parking hours ... Read more

Weekend Reading | 1.18.20.

scuba blazer + sweatshirt dickey Happy weekend! This week was a hot mess mix of being super productive (I got a LOT done for my Amazon the Drop collection and am in major party planning mode for an event next week) and feeling dreadfully lazy/in need of a nap. Add to that a broken computer and a mold situation inside my bathroom light/fan and it wasn’t the best recipe for productivity. I guess we will just say win some, you lose some!!! I feel less bad about the lazier days as I did work quite a bit last weekend and ... Read more

Currently Eyeing….

Thought it would be fun to share a few things I’m eyeing right now! Liz Adams keeps raving about these AGOLDE jeans (I haven’t tried the brand but got a pair in my most recent Stitchfix box) and I really love the look of them. They’re so cute; the perfect mom jeans! I’m also eyeing a few cozy sweaters. Julia had on this Madewell one and I thought it was super cute. And I LOVE this chunky one… it looks much more expensive than it actually is. Also on the fashion front: you know I love Veronica Beard blazers but ... Read more

On the menu: New Brooklyn bars and restaurants to check out this winter

At the upscale Bathhouse Restaurant, you can dine in your kimono after a visit to its subterranean spa. Photo: Bathhouse By now your inbox has been flooded with emails on goal setting for the new year, mocktail recipes to help stay on track during Dry January and projections for what this decade will bring in terms of food and drink trends. A big theme this new year, unsurprisingly, seems to be all things plant-based. The planet is on track to become the cause of the year, and growers, chefs and diners alike are looking for ways to consume food in a more environmentally conscious way. Countries like ... Read more

Sarah Flint Sale!

Unless you are brand new (in which case WELCOME!) then you know how much I love Sarah Flint (just search my blog and look at my outfit diaries… I wear her shoes more than any other brand, far and away!) While I do have a discount code (details below) the bummer about Sarah Flint is that the brand rarely ever goes on sale. So I have some exciting news – the brand is running their semi-annual sale, with select styles marked down 30%! (Ends Thursday 1/16 at midnight EST!) The big thing to know is that the perfect pump in ... Read more

Updated: Augustinus Bader Skincare Review.

Augustinus Bader has been my favorite face cream now for just about two years. I use it every day, without fail. If I’m testing something new for night, I make sure to apply Dr. Bader in the morning – and vice versa if I’m testing something for morning. It’s a compulsion – I am die hard. Today I wanted to update my review with a little more detail on why I love it so much (and where to get it since they’ve expanded distribution), and also provide an FAQ on Bader as I get asked about it nearly every day! ...

What I Wore: 1.4 – 1.10.

Happy Monday! This weekend was a  nice little mix of productive and fun. On Saturday night I went over Ashley Spivey’s for a fun girls’ night (pizza, wine, and then we ALL brought dessert so there were lots of treats), and yesterday was a mix of running errands and chores (I am on a major decluttering/donating mission over here!) and then going to meet one of my best friend in the world’s new baby (she is the most perfect delicious little 5 day year old you’ve ever laid eyes on) and spending time with my sister, brother-in-law, and niece. My ... Read more

The skyscraper tree grates at Rockefeller Center

Look up to the sky at 50th Street and Fifth Avenue, and you’ll see the iconic skyscraper 30 Rock—the sleek, 66-story beauty at the center of the Art Deco complex of towers developed by the Rockefeller family in the 1930s. Now look down at the sidewalk you’re standing on. Embedded into the concrete are metal tree grates with a similar Art Deco skyscraper design. A lovely touch, right? The interesting thing is that the skyscrapers in the grates don’t exactly look like the gleaming buildings at Rockefeller Plaza. With their stacked shape and tall antennas, these mini-scrapers actually resemble the ... Read more
