Summer Reading: July

Happy August! I’d ask how we’re already here, but honestly, the days are blurring together and the only way I know it’s August is it’s HOT HOT HOT here in NJ right now. Anyway, I’ve been getting my reading ON, y’all! Just ripping through stories left and right and loving it. What’s better than sitting […]

I’m Growing an Avocado Tree

I’m a millennial, so of course I love me some avocado. On toast, on eggs, on burgers, on salads, all by itself. I have a problem. Back in May, quarantine boredom struck me (as it does) and I decided to try propagating an avocado pit. It’s progress has been so fun to watch these last […]

Natural Deodorants I’m Trying This Summer

Natural deodorant is something I’ve been dabbling in off and on over the last few years. But once the summer hits I usually ditch it for fear it won’t work in this unforgivable Jersey heat and humidity and go right back to my tried and true conventional deodorant. But since I’m not really going anywhere […]

Sunday Not-So-Scaries: July 12

Woo… Another week, how are we doin’? Things are starting to come along at our house right now which is really exciting. We moved in nearly two years ago and hadn’t been able to make the changes we envisioned when we bought it. At the beginning of March we started renovating our living/dining rooms but […]

What Happened When I Ordered Plants Online

For years I’ve daydreamed about becoming a plant lady, but I always thought I was just never destined to have a green thumb. I’ve killed numerous plants over the years, even a bamboo plants which I was certain was indestructible. How sad? The summer after we bought our home I decided to finally give gardening […]

Summer Reading: June

The biggest perk of being at home all the time and never leaving my house again (crying) is that I can read SO much more than I did before when I was commuting over 3 hours every single day. I’m a little late to the party, but I wanted to share the books I read […]

Sunday Not-So-Scaries: May 10

Spring is really here now in New Jersey, JK it’s freezing outside. It felt so good to open up the windows last weekend, but hopefully the warm weather makes its way back soon. Oh, but I’d like to wish a very happy Mother’s Day to all of the mommas & momma figures out there! I’ve […]

Defining the Weekend

I love New Jersey’s official Twitter account right now for reminding me what day it is. Never have I felt caught in a loop of endless days – well, not counting that annual week between Christmas and New Year’s Day. Prior to the shutdowns, my husband and I basically only saw each other on the […]

My Skin Care Favs

Long before I was home all day every day (forever and ever?), I had a pretty low maintenance makeup skin care routine. I’ve since amped up the skincare part, but broke up with makeup for the time being. I generally wore minimal makeup during the workweek to begin with and often only applied a full […]

Sunday Not-So-Scaries: April 26

Are the weeks just blending together anymore? Sure feels like it. On the bright side, I’ve finally found an at-home daily routine that’s added more structure to my days. I generally go to sleep at wake up around the same time now and squeeze in a short at-home workout and a walk before work if […]
