Valentines you love it? Hate it? Or are you like me and just sort of ambivalent about this day?  With my youngest now in middle school, this is my first year as a mom where I don't need to run out and get a box of little cards for at least one of my kids' classrooms. That's a little sad, I guess. Like I said, I can really take or leave or this holiday. But, despite my feelings about this "Hallmark Holiday"- my thoughts on all things pink, heart shaped and sentimental is constant. 

I love all the cliche little items that always appear in stores this time of year. I adore pink, hearts and xs and os all the time, not just on the 14th. So of course I couldn't resist putting together this sweet little group of adorable and affordable Valentines Day gift ideas.  Plus, chocolate is always a good idea! Right?

We Bought A Beach House!

As I shared on my Instagram stories this weekend, we recently purchased a beach house! It's far from "turnkey" move in ready and we've got a lot of renovations to do (hopefully before the summer starts) but I'm super excited! It's up in Rhode Island, about two hours from us in Connecticut. This means a lot of the work will be happening without us there to supervise it daily (which seems a little crazy) but fingers crossed will be fine.


Peeking Into Designer's Homes

Interior designer Hillary Thomas' home, featured recently in Architectural Digest took my breath away. I've been so inspired by Hillary's interiors for years now (this home is a personal favorite), so it feels extra special to get to see inside her stunning home. The architectural elements throughout each room are the stuff decor dreams are made of. It's always a treat to get a glimpse into the homes of designers whose work I admire so much!


Favorite Beauty Must Haves

The idea for this post initially started out as a "Best of 2017 Beauty Purchases" post, but the more I thought about it, the more I realized so many of my beauty buys this year were more like beauty busts. You know, the stuff you end up relegating to the drawer of misfit beauty toys - I'm assuming we all have one.

The world of beauty products is a daunting endless one, with hot new products hitting the market on what seems like a daily basis. So today, I thought I'd round up my all time favorite beauty products- tried and tested and loved for years. These are my beauty must haves...
