I met my friend Paul eight years ago while we were both working as editors at the same home decor magazine. But little did I know that he and I would become really close friends throughout the years and that he would eventually invest in, and help open a very cool restaurant in Williamsburg…read more >
Hello, hello! Sorry for the lack of posts that past couple of days, but I ‘m back and excited to share this video with you guys! Back in March, I partnered with SheKnows and Dove to discuss how I ground myself and when I feel most beautiful. Head over here to read the full post!

Now that I am in my 30s I am starting to pay closer attention to things like skincare, healthy eating and exercise. I have always been aware of these things because I grew up as an active kid, ate well and was taught about how to take care of my skin at a young age, so I think generally I know how to live a healthy lifestyle…

I’ve had a bag of clothing sitting in my closet for the past six months that I have desperately needed to bring into the dry cleaners/tailors not only to be cleaned but also to be tailored. I finally took care of it while I was home in Seattle and was amazed at what a difference it made…

Lately I have been noticing that I am really not that into wearing a ton of “loud” jewelry anymore, which is weird because I used to LOVE wearing big statement necklaces or layering tons of bangles with my watch. Don’t get me wrong, I still love accessorizing with jewelry, but am transitioning into daintier, more classic, simple pieces that I hope to have for a long time. That seems to be my theme lately, but that’s for another blog post. :)
I have a mix of inexpensive and pricier little earrings, but have been on the lookout to find even more favorites because I love playing around with mixing and matching them now that I have three holes in each ear. Right now, I am loving pieces from Melissa Joy Manning (I love her little “hug hoops” and can sleep in them comfortably), Ariel Gordon, Catbird, Kendra Scott, Bauble Bar, H&M, and Forever 21 for a range of prices and styles. (If you have really sensitive ears, it might make sense to invest in a couple pairs of really nice studs that are made of a metal that won’t irritate your skin, so keep that in mind when browsing around.)
Now I want to hear from you guys! What kind of jewelry are you into right now? Do you have any places that you shop for dainty jewelry that I need to know about? I would love to hear, so leave me a comment below! xoxo
P.S. If you live in New York and are looking to pierce your ears (or anything else really) head to New York Adorned and schedule an appointment with Colby. He is so good at making the process basically painless with his calm and reassuring nature, and he is really good at hole placement so that everything looks symmetrical.
My Dad and I had to run some errands yesterday but we ended up driving through Queen Anne and came across these gorgeous cherry tree blossoms…
