How to do a Digital Detox

Happy New Year!! You may have noticed that I’ve been pretty quiet here on the blog and on social media over the holiday season. Without really planning to, I ended up logging offline for the past couple of weeks and taking some much needed time to reconnect with the real world and it felt amazing! It started on Christmas day – I really wanted to post something but I was hosting brunch for my family that morning and was a bit ill prepared so the second I woke up I started cleaning and cooking. All while I was prepping I …

DIY Patch Denim Jacket

A major 90s trend that is totally making a comeback is embroidered patches and pins on everything! I’ve been seeing this everywhere and I’m especially loving this look on denim.

I was rocking a versatile duster trench paired with dark denim, a classic black and white striped turtleneck and a pair of suede over-the-knee boots. This is one of my favorite looks…preppy, polished and perfect for fall. Shop the look below! And bonus – since it’s Cyber Monday I’ve also …

Creating an Attitude of Gratitude

With the holiday season upon us it’s the perfect time to reflect on all of the things in our lives that we’re grateful for. So often we only focus on the obvious without stopping to recognize all of the little moments in life that we take for granted yet are very much worth appreciating. I recently came across this article  by life coach Michael Hyatt which talks about how a simple shift in your choice of vocabulary can change our whole mindset around gratitude and make us happier, more productive people. Even when we’re fortunate to have incredible opportunities, out …
