Pretty Pins for Anyone Who is Spring Ready

Remember when I said I was flying down to PB for a girls trip a few weeks ago? We didn't make it out - but we're back on track and rescheduled for mid-April! We all have never had to cancel a trip before, so I think it's safe to say this was a learning experience for all of us. That being said, I'm so sick of all the storms and ready for Spring to finally arrive. Does anyone else feel that way? I've rounded up a pins to remind me spring is just around the corner.

Happy almost Friday!


02 March 2018


It's been a pretty big two months with lots of changes going on - some good and some not so good. Here are a few quick updates + I'm excited to be getting this blog back on track!

Looking for a new job! I was laid off about a month and a half ago and am scrambling to find a new job before my severance package is gone. I've been looking at other options in the meantime, like real estate and temp work to hold me over but still keeping my fingers crossed for a new job!

Watching the tv show When Calls the Heart - I hate myself for loving it, but something about this show has really drawn me in. I think it might be the whole fantasy of living in the middle of nowhere with no access to technology I've had for most of my life that's getting to me.

Flying down to Palm Beach for a girl's trip with Cait and Dana! I'm super excited to show my two besties why I love PB so much. Now that I'm unemployed I'm seriously considering a move down there...but don't tell my parents just yet!

Preordering this CLAYTON jumpsuit! I always love the idea of a jumpsuit but struggle to find ones that I like and fit well. I'm hoping this one fits well, because I love it. Stay tuned for more fit and style information. If only it had come in time for my PB getaway.

Talking all about The Gold Gala on the towerhouse instagram. This year I was in charge of the decor and can officially say that I rediscovered my love of arranging flowers and have spent a lot of time in the (always instagramable) flower district here in NY. I'm also beyond thrilled to say we've raised $157,000 at the event, and $800,000 since it's inception - what a huge pinch me moment!

That's all I've been up to the past few weeks - what about you?

Artist Love: Bo Bartlett

I was invited to the Bo Bartlett Center's opening next week and while I sadly can't make it I was reminded all over again how much I love his work. He's a realist painter, focusing on American life and cultural heritage (according to his website). A lot of articles and interviews I read reference how earnest he is as a person, which is certainly reflected in his work. It doesn't alienate the viewer and can be enjoyed at face value but there are also layers to the paintings that if you look closer you can see a more deeper meaning. One day I aspire to own an original work of his, but until then I'm saving my pennies for a print! Below are a few of my favorite works of his and a  peek into his chic studio in Maine.
