watermelon + heirloom tomato salad

Sweet, sweet summatime. Pool hangs, cookouts, and long beach days are back. And losing yourself in a fantastically freeing tranquil picnic is one of the best activities of the sunshine season. Throwing your favorite blanket down on the grass, sand, or tile and surrounding yourself with people you love and a hodgepodge of eclectic dishes […]

Latest obsession: podcasts

I recently dove into the podcast world. I’ve always heard others talk about them and friends rave about the ones they were currently into, but I never quite understood them. Sooo they are basically just audiobooks right? No. Not at all. After all the hype, I finally decided to give them a try. At first, […]

Warm White Bean Arugula Salad

My favorite crop season…and season in general…is upon us. Fall. My husband plants all my favorite things this time of the year. Arugula, kale, spinach, broccoli, all the greens. Since we have an abundance of them in our garden, I’m always looking for new ways to use them. Arugula is my favorite leafy green. It […]

So a few years ago my mom went to Europe and brought me back this wooden brush. She tried to explain to me how to use it, but it honestly just looked like a regular brush to me. I hung on my bathroom wall hook and used it as decoration. It wasn't until after my […]

Making a statement

My favorite outfit consist of destroyed Levi's with a white top. So in order to make these basics sing, I'm always looking for big statements. Since it's summer and I live at the beach, shoes are optional so my next go-to is earrings. I've always been one for dainty jewels, but this summer's statement trend […]

minimalist summer favorites 

I have a serious love/hate relationship with summer. Hats, woven bags, simple and timeless basics are my favorite clothing pieces. However, I’m not one for scorching temperatures. This fair skinned bod and strawberry blonde locks aren’t a huge fan of sunlight. But, living at the beach in Florida I’ve learned to embrace it.  As for […]
