Swiss Missed

Well, I’m basically a Swiss Miss now, I’ve experienced so many regional wonders while in midday day number nine of quarantine. Let’s see, there were food deliveries, laundry in a bunker, the tease of some good sunsets, instant coffee, windows open sleeping where bugs feasted on me while I slumbered….I could go on… Really, though,…

Macarons in Bed

That’s Macarons in Bed, not mayhem…get your mind out of the gutter. Macarons in Bed are not only a sweet luxury en suite, they’re also the new hotel ranking system from the gorgeous team behind this tasty blog of wanderlust. Along with each sometimes sarcastic, sometimes overly passionate hotel write-up, a number of macarons will…

2019 or Bust!

Happy last day of 2018, dear friends! I am that nerd who is totally enamored with new years. I love that there is a solid line drawn in the sand to reset and make a conscious effort to restart and be better. I love the actual evening of – getting all gussied up to be…

The Curtains are the Sea

Hi Guys! Hope everyone had a great weekend! Mine was THE MOST productive ever. I did tons of work and projects around the house. I just had so much damn energy and it was wonderful. So, you’ve seen some similar shots before, but I just had to share my recently made over living room. I…

Interior

Is anyone up watching the royal wedding? I am! I was so excited I couldn’t sleep. I think my own Prince Harry must be lost out there somewhere. With no wedding or move in my own near future-what else is there to do, but femme up the place for myself? A new area rug AND…

Strips of Rose Gold

A few years ago my bestie told me that my stripper name should be ‘Rose Gold.’ (Hers:  Emerald Cut). It had me in stitches at the time and I’ve been trying to live up to the moniker ever since. Not so much in the stripping department, but more so in the shopping department. So, in…

Up, Up, & Away

I just had to share my favorite purchases of late and probably my favorite travel purchase of all times… the Away carry-on suitcase! The thing is truly incredible and I’ll share with you why in photos so you can see for yourself. In fact, I raved about this little guy so much over the summer,…

Unscripted, Part Deux

Hi loves! I’m baaccckkk! Apologies for the month-long hiatus, but I was able to make my trip to Bali, for which I am so grateful. (The volcano still hasn’t erupted!) More on that very soon. Prior to that was the biggest work event of the year which was beyond physically and mentally exhausting and prior…

She’s Gonna Blow…

Not often, but occasionally, I wonder about starting my life over at 30. Watching all my friends find love, get married, have kids, sling a company, sometimes I feel like I’m living my younger years now and spinning my wheels a bit. I’m happy for them, but sometimes I just feel like I should be…

Berry Greetings from the Future

If I told you that I knew what you’d be eating two days from now for breakfast, would you believe me? You should, because I’m a psychic. Well, a baking psychic. That’s psychic with an ‘-ic,’ not with an ‘-o.’ Thanks very much. That’s right, two days ago I made my world famous berry good…

What Came First? The Eggplant or the Emoji? 🍆

This weekend I hosted company who freakin’ loves some eggplant – the food not the emoji. So, I found the most wonderful looking recipe I could find and readied myself to making a delicious main dish for Saturday night dinner. Naturally, I leaned on Ina Garten’s Eggplant Gratin. Now Ina’s recipes are so foolproof that…
