London Calling

London Calling, yes, I was there too… …and will be again in a week! I’ve been lucky enough to jaunt across the pond something like my six times this year.  Since I keep repeating my destination cities and am often asked for resto reccos, I thought what better than to share some travel favorites via…

El Farallon

I’m just back from a long Labor Day weekend in Cabo, one of the most naturally beautiful places that I’ve yet to see. I just love that place. Wish I lived a little more centrally so that it could be my “Miami.” Ya’ know, that 2 hour flight to get away from it all for…

Unscripted Hotel Durham

“Live life unscripted,” the motto of the new Unscripted hotel in Durham, part of the Dream Hotel group. Having enjoyed the pool scene and restaurants many times over in Miami, I was super excited this was moving into the neighborhood. One of my fav travel partners and I decided a staycation was absolutely in order….

Bachelorette Mayhem! Pick Your Betches

Loversssss! Today is the day! Time to pick your top 5 for tonight’s ceremony! I’m travelling for work and will miss this week! And next week! Going in blind, kids. May the best betch win. Here’s the bracket in case you forgot to buy roses.  

Monday, I Don’t Care About You…

While Monday is probably the worst day for the Cure’s lyrics, it’s all we have today and I’m grossly behind on filling you in on all my little loves. Here are snaps of the past week (or two). Apologies that they are so booze-centric. I really have been quite healthy during the week. First on…

The One Cookie You MUST Make this Season

If you’re like me and having the most low key Christmas in the history of Christmases (just me and the ‘rents and far too much attention), it’s getting difficult to resist the urge to bake. The baking struggle was particularly aggressive as the push and pull of gingerbread vs sugar cookie is a tough battle….

Cabo, Tres & Quattro

The last couple days have been a blur. A hurricane hit. No power. No water. The storm hit overnight. It was truly terrifying. Since sleep wasn’t an option, I stayed awake all night to enjoy the lightening show and guess when the balcony swing would crash through my door. Somehow it didn’t! Even prior to…

I’m Baaaaaackkkk

Hi guys! Was the hiatus long enough for you to miss me? I have so much to fill you in on… From the worst breakup of my life, to trips I never shared, and new recipe wins and losses vetted by Chrissy Tiegan herself. Also, I’ve made two moves! I cannot begin to describe how…

Cazabon 

After an atomically awful personal week coupled with a shite storm of a work week, my trip to California could not have arrived at a more perfect crossroads. With meetings in San Diego next week, I decided to spend the weekend prior in Palm Springs, having heard amazing things from friends with travel tastes I…

The Immersion Program

My Chap is big into the full immersion program. And not like let’s send the (nonexistent) children to French primary school (totally happening). More like, we should move-in together immediately. Ok! And meet my parents, but instead of over dinner, how about 10 days of isolation with them. Oh, alright. Since, apparently, we are gluttons…

Sauced and Pickled 

 Last weekend was spent nearly entirely in the kitchen, testing recipes for upcoming guests, not loving them, sending them to work with the Chap, and repeat. I was getting discouraged on Sunday and told him, I don’t care whether we order Chinese or you roast a whole duck for dinner (he’s been talking about this),…

Littlefoot Approves

This charming exchange between boyfriend and girlfriend and the art of buying make-up had me giggling alone in my office today.
