Capsule Wardrobe Misconceptions

I've been doing the capsule wardrobe thing for a little while now and wanted to share how it's going. At some point, I'll begin creating fashion posts that include the pieces of my capsule wardrobe but I've got to up my indoor photography game first. I...

Chorizo Street Tacos

Well, ladies and gents, I did it. I let Adam choose a recipe. And, after he pretended to ignore me while I called out ideas (including ideas revolving around sausage, watermelon, and cookie dough), he ended up mentioning chorizo street tacos. After telling me all about his former chorizo breakfast hash recipe (that he hasn’t ever cooked for me – how rude!), he informed me that I could find chorizo in those “long sausage packages” at Publix. So, I went out in search of the famed chorizo, pulling some ideas from his breakfast hash in order to make some chorizo street tacos.

Three Benefits of Taking Photos Alone

Although I still haven’t traveled alone – and I haven’t even ridden on a plane alone! – I ventured out to test out my solo photography skills. Ok, let’s be honest: I went out to practice because, even though I have a tripod, I haven’t actually used it. Long story short…I’m obsessed. So I had to come home and write about the three benefits of taking photos alone.

Capsule Wardrobe for Alaska

On our cruise, we’re going to have a small closet, much like we do at home, so I’ll be packing a capsule wardrobe for Alaska. I’m also doing this because of the kinds of items I’m bringing. Sweaters and coats and boots all take up far more room than bikinis, floral dresses, and short shorts. So, without further ado, here are the items that I’ll be packing in my capsule wardrobe for Alaska.

Man, I've been writing a whole lot of travel posts (I guess I'm excited about Alaska, huh?!) but it's totally time for a food-related post. While I'm not posting one of my recipes (or a recipe fail, which you haven't had to witness yet, I am posting about...

Caille Blanc Villa

St. Lucia is a stunning island that I’ve had the pleasure of visiting twice. Even writing this post makes me want to book a flight back. Last June, at the same exact time as this, Adam and I headed there with our families. That trip was one of the most memorable I’ve ever been on because, on June 7th, we got married. The best thing about our return to Soufriere was the stunning residence we rented: Caille Blanc Villa.

Packing for an Alaskan Cruise

Each summer Adam and I plan at least one epic trip. Last year, we went to St. Lucia, where we got married, and then took a cruise around the Mediterranean with Seabourn. Both trips were amazing and I can't wait to head back to both destinations. However,...

Five of the Best Fashion Influencers

Fashion isn't just about the clothes that we purchase or the designers that we prefer. It isn't just about the outfits or the photos of those outfits that we share online. It's not about whether we have a small or a large closet - or a small or large...

Three Reasons to Wear ba&sh

When I rent items from Rent the Runway, I never know how the clothes will fit me. I’m pretty petite; I’m five foot one and wear a zero or double zero, depending on the brand or the type of item, and feel as though my legs are quite short. Some items that arrive are too big in the waist or too long – but whenever I order an item from ba&sh, it fits perfectly. I would definitely recommend their clothing (for those that are willing to splurge on their gorgeous designs) and here are three reasons to wear ba&sh.
