Top 10 DIYs to Try

As I’m sure you know by now, Matt and I will be moving to our new apartment at the end of May. I’ve been all sorts of inspired to find decor for the new place that fit both of our styles – and what better way to decorate, than with a whole bunch of DIYs! Now, I’m sure I’m being overly ambitious in thinking I’ll actually go out of my way to build things rather than just buy pre-made stuff…

Saturdays are for the Tourists

Or, rather, Saturdays are for *the residents pretending to be tourists. Matt and I played tourist today at the Hoboken Waterfront – which has always been one of our favorite places to relax on the weekend. With the coming of (slightly) warmer weather, we headed to there today to take advantage of the sunshine and fresh air (both of us are slightly sick, so we felt it would be good for not only our minds but also for our nasal…

Go Home, Spring, You’re Drunk

It’s officially spring! And just when we thought we were free of icy sidewalks and bitter winds, we have been hit by our fourth nor’easter in the past month! Granted, it ended up not being quite as bad as we expected, but to play it safe both Matt and I stayed home from work to ride out the storm. About halfway through the day, though, we both began to go a little stir-crazy being stuck in my 500 square foot…

Flying Into 2018

If you read my post about my 25th birthday (also known to the vast majority of the public as “Christmas Day”), you already know that my boyfriend, Matt, truly goes above and beyond for me. Well, in the case of my actual birthday present, he REALLY went above and beyond, and not just in the figurative sense. In fact, we BOTH went above and beyond in a very real way – on a helicopter tour of Manhattan! Now, let me…

Warby Parker’s Home Try-On

I first heard about the Warby Parker Home Try-On program a little over two years ago – an intern at my first job ranted and raved about how cool the service was. If you haven’t heard of it, essentially you select five pairs of glasses (not all styles are available for home try-on, but most are) and the company will send them to you free of charge to try. You can keep the frames for up to five days until…

#MarkeyPartyof2

So, some of you may be wondering (I doubt anyone is wondering, but this felt right for effect) why Matt and I made the trip to the Adirondacks this weekend. Well folks, wonder no more! My friend and co-worker, Crystal, married her best friend of many years, Eddie, this past Saturday in Lake Placid. Matt and I were honored to join them to celebrate their wedding and new marriage along with their family and close friends. This was one of…

Our Adirondack Adventure

This past weekend, Matt and I embarked upon one of our biggest adventures yet — conquering the Adirondacks! Okay, well we didn’t exactly conquer them, but we did drive all the way up there from my parents’ house in New Jersey. Beyond that, we pretty much just stopped the car every so often once we made it into the mountains. And by that I mean we would be driving, see other cars pulled over, continue to drive by them, realize…

10 Must-Try Restaurants in the NYC Area

I love food. I love food that is good for you, I love food that is bad for you but tastes good for you. I even love food that is bad for you and makes you feel bad afterwards. I love eating until I’m painfully full and can’t walk and all I can do is complain about how full I am. And I especially love carbs. Carbs are just the best. Now, I am by no means a New York City…

Get the Look: My Shelves
I don’t know about you, but styling shelves doesn’t always come easy for me. I often struggle to determine the right amount of items to use – the more items you have on a shelf the less of an impact each one will have, but with too few items...
