Celebrate The Holidays

As the holidays approach we all have different traditions, favorite memories, and things we look forward to. We thought we would share our holiday plans with you guys…here’s what we’re most excited about this year. For me, the holiday season begins on Thanksgiving. My boyfriends Birthday is November 24th and then I begin to get ready to head to the East Coast for my Birthday, Christmas, and the New Year. In between all of this I’m holiday shopping, packing, blogging, and planning my trip to New York City. December is a hectic month for me, but it’s also my favorite time of the year. NewRead More →

My Christmas wish list

Every year once I’m finished with my holiday shopping I create my Christmas wish list to make it easier on my friends and family.

There’s holiday shopping, packing and planning my annual trip to NYC and Massachusetts, and trying to get all this done before I leave. This means I don’t have a lot of time to decorate my apartment but I still want it to look trendy and festive.Read More →

Natural Remedies to Fight a Cold

Winter can be a beautiful season where we get excited to break out our cute and comfy winter wardrobe, but with that comes the cold and flu season.

We use hand sanitizer, steer clear of our sick friends and family, and take multivitamins to avoid it. It would be great if all our preventative and avoidant behavior could guarantee us a healthy winter, but often times viruses catch up to us and then we’reRead More →
