So this is not a post I was planning to write but I got SOOO many questions and comments about our mini staycation at the Four Seasons Hotel St. Louis that I figured I’d share info here for yall! If you missed it, I surprised Michael with a night away at the Four Seasons for his 30th birthday last week. It was a big birthday and I wanted to celebrate him in an extra special way AND it was our first night away from Kennedy, so that was a big deal, too haha…Read More

Today we’re all sharing our versions of MOM HACKS! Because who doesn’t love a good hack, right?! And don’t forget to check out all the other posts at the very end of this one…Read More
Okay guys, here is the first official European trip post. Sorry it's taken a couple months to get to, but life has been a little busy lately. I've been dying to share this with yall but wanted to wait until I knew with certainty that I had followed through on this idea haha. But I did it! I packed a capsule wardrobe for our trip to Europe and everything fit in a carryon sized bag + my personal carry on…Read More
Hello, August! How on earth are we already here?! It's been a minute since I've done a monthly recap sharing favorite things and whatnot due to our insanely busy (and fun) summer schedule, so without further adieu, let's jump right in…Read More
I hope you all had a great weekend. If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen that our weekend plans had a bit of a wrench thrown in them... Michael surprised me with a trip to Philly for my birthday to see Billy Joel, among other things, which was supposed to happen this weekend. We were up super early on Friday morning (even squeezed in teaching a Pure Barre class before rushing to the airport) and upon landing in Chicago for our connecting flight, we were told that our flight (and all others to/from Philly) were cancelled... meaning we weren't going to make it for the concert that night or probably at all for the weekend. Cue a lot of frustration and some bummed out attitudes until we decided that we'd try to make the most of it by hanging in Chicago this weekend instead…Read More
Another dress post for you, because I just can’t stop! I bought this dress specifically for our trip but also knowing that I’d wear it all summer once we get back home.
It is technically a maternity dress (PS thanks ASOS for having the cutest stuff for mamas-to-be ever!) but truly just feels like a really flowy maxi dress. In case you’re not preggo, I’ve included some other black maxi dresses that are super similar to the one I’m wearing…Read More
Hey yall. We made it to Florence yesterday and are having the time of our lives so far. This is a really special place for me since I studied here during college, so it is super fun being back, especially with my best guy and travel bud…Read More
Happy hump day! Our European getaway is quickly approaching (less than a month away!!) and it's got me in vacay mode. We are trying to pack light since we're traveling for over two weeks and to so many locations, so I've been toying around with the idea of packing a "capsule wardrobe"...Read More
I'm finally getting around to sharing about the 2018 Sundance Film Festival! This was our third year attending with Michael's family and it is one of our favorite trips each year. If you don't know much about it, Sundance is the largest independent film festival in the United States and takes place in Utah each January...Read More
I feel slightly crazy typing this out, but let's be honest, Christmas (and the holiday season in general) are right around the corner. In fact, today marks SEVEN weeks until Christmas day!! What!?
With that in mind, I'm officially launching holiday geared content for y'all and today we're starting with my first Christmas 2017 gift guide... all for the jet setter! Whether it's you or not, we all have someone in our lives who loves to travel, and truthfully, many of these gifts are practical for anyone!Read More
Hi y'all! I normally don't do a lot of posting on the weekends, but I just couldn't wait to share this with y'all. I am a big lover of Amazon (as I think we all are!) and have recently made some amazing purchases online that I'm dying to tell y'all about!Read More
Happy Monday, friends! We're headed to Detroit tomorrow and while prepping to pack up for a quick trip, I got to thinking about some of my go-to gadgets for travel (and life in general)!
Being married to a tech genius slash software salesman, I've grown quite fond of techie gadgets in my everyday life, and while that may sound super nerdy, I'm here to share with you how to have your cake and eat it too (in the form of CUTE gadgets!) ;)
Two main qualifiers for this list: 1) must be practical (duh) and 2) as promised, must be cute and appropriate for a girly girl like myself (and you!)Read More
I've been dying to share this look with y'all and tell you about our [very brief] trip to MN, so today's the day! A couple of weeks ago I was able to tag along with Michael on a business trip to Minneapolis, which was a new city for me. Our trip was super short, so I'm no expert, but did want to share a few great spots we visited while there!Read More
Earlier this spring, Michael and I traveled to Charleston, South Carolina for the first time and let me tell you... we fell in love! While we were only there for a long weekend, we packed SO much into those few days and now we just have an excuse to go back! ;) Here were some of our favorite spots we hit during our trip.Read More
If I'm being completely honest, swimsuit shopping is no where near the top of my "favorite things to do" list... BUT I do love this time of year! It's finally warm enough to lay out in the sun and go on beach vacays, which Michael and I are currently chatting about! ;)Read More
