Favorite skincare: Mario Badescu

If you opened my medicine cabinet you would be convinced I had some sort of deal with Mario Badescu, it's almost embarrassing. Unfortunately it's a one way love affair, but man do I love them.  As someone with not great skin, I used to spend massive amounts of money on skincare things that I read …

Paris trip: Montmartre 

We've only been back for less than a week but this trip already is starting to feel so far away. Maybe it's because so much happened on the trip or maybe it's because we were really thrown back into a busy work half week and an even busier time at home. Whatever reason, I'm enjoying …

Rainy day ramen at Boru

If that picture doesn't make you immediately want to get up and head over to Boru on Broadway in Newport then you're crazy.  This place is quickly becoming Matts and my favorite. We're huge ramen fans and they always blow it out of the water. That pork belly! The broth! I can go on forever.  …

My favorite Glossier skincare

Something you'll learn quickly is I'm obsessed with all skincare products. But I get really nervous adding new things into my routine in case it makes my skin even worse.

Love is sweet

This past Saturday Matt and I had the luck to go and watch his best friend since childhood get married. This couple truly is by far our favorite couple to hang out with. They are kind, funny, and always down for activities. They've helped us move numerous times, and they have always been there for …

Millennial (in) Pink

I'll be the first to admit it, but you could catch me probably 4 out of the 5 work days in a pair of jeans. I have started relying so heavily on jeans because the office is freezing, but it really bothers me when it is gorgeous outside. Thankfully I've had so many clothes since …
