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,…

Bobo vs Hipsters

Bobo or Hipster? Which are you? You can guess what I am…. Take the quiz and let me know what types of brilliant folks are reading my blog. ­čÖé Also, is this not the most charming newsletter in the history of newsletters?! If you aren’t already signed up to become more Parisian, particularly with a…

Love Sweet, Love, Take 2

We heard from Chef Jaime and her Valentine’s Day plans. I thought you might be curious to hear what I’m preparing. I’m such a cheeseball, I do kind of love this holiday. Not in a fancy dinner and gifts sort of way, but more in a 5th grade arts and crafts sort of way. I’m…

Love, Sweet Love

  Hello, loving readers! We are prepping for Valentine’s Day with a little inspo from Chef Jaime today. Yours truly will share her similar thoughts soon and we can decide together who’s version of love and baking is the grossest…or at least the ooey-ist, gooey-ist. What are you baking for your hubs for Valentine’s Day?…

Friday, I’m In Love…

This week was mostly work, with a sprinkling of medium-sized personal bumps tossed in for a long-week cocktail. Here’s’ a few bits that made me smile. 1. ┬áThis quiz from My Little Paris. Check the link below to find your inner French girl. Turns out, I’m Josephine Baker. Who’s your Parisian Alter Ego? 2. ┬áThen…

Wishing everyone the brightest day during one of the best times of the year. Thanks for reading. ÔŁĄ

Date Night

It’s Friday night… who’s ready for date night????!!! (Looks around empty apartment…) No one! Doesn’t matter. Life is short. Plus,┬áthe new John Legend single will have you conjuring romantic s$!t in your head in no time. Beautiful song. Beautiful album art. Life is good. Le sigh…

Moon Over Mexico

I’m so over-the-moon in love with life today. I’ve basically been waiting for this day for a year, but particularly this summer. I finally get to execute a trip of my selection! And it’s going to be romantic AF, just the way vacation should be. That’s right, I’m returning to The Cape Hotel in Cabo…

Bienvenue à Miami

A crummy string of events last Friday had me jonsing for some good girlfriends. I reached out to the Miami crew to see who might be in town this weekend. Turns out everyone was (and responded immediately) and even the kids from NYC were around! A flight booked and 30 minutes to shower and pack……

I’m in Love with the Coco

One of the most uplifting things about being single after being not for a while is that all of your friends want to help you move or feed you wine and make sure that you’re safe. While it’s hard to imagine little lady friends moving dressers and mattresses during my recent twice weekly moving debacle,…

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…

Gotta Lotta Crostata

I have been making Ina Garten’s Apple Crostata recipe for years now. YEARS. This was one of my first forays into how easy a flavorful crust can truly be (down with shortening!) and reaffirmed my constant need for sea salt in my desserts. In 2009, I was also quite happy to produce this recipe in…
