We all need a few staples in our closet that can be worn all year and can be mixed and matched with blazers, sweaters, scarves, etc.  Here are two items that meet the above criteria but also can be worn before and during pregnancy!   Bandage Dress from Tees by Tina Here I am wearing it in emerald at six months pregnant. There are so many different variations of this dress (color, length, pattern) but they are all made with… Read more »

I do a lot of daydreaming.  Always have and always will.  I daydream about creating different spaces as I come across things that inspire me.  So every once in a while I browse some of my favorite websites, pin about 3242340 things, and create what I call inspiration boards. I figured that the blog would be a great place to share some of my creations with you.   A little black and gold to start off the new year…  … Read more »

If you’re looking for something pretty to give someone special I recommend these Voluspa candles… A candle that looks this chic on the outside and smells amazing is a no brainer! I purchased a couple of them from Nordstrom.  There are plenty of different scents and colors to choose from.  My mom is having her bathroom redone so I decided to get her one of these, some soaps, and monogrammed towels.  Happy gift giving!

Registering for a baby shower is exciting and a little overwhelming at the same time.  A friend gave me this book and it was really useful when it came to deciding on items that we needed for our registry. We read through it and marked off the items that we decided on before going to the store.  The reviews are useful and really great for first time parents that have no clue what they’re doing!

One of the things that I love most about selling real estate is putting together our client gifts right before a closing.  We are always so grateful to our clients for trusting us as real estate  agents and we want our gifts to show it. I recently realized that I have bought many different personalized stamps for clients but Derek and I actually don’t have one.  I think Banter & Charm takes the cake!  They had great customer service and… Read more »

This past weekend on Long Island was absolutely gorgeous! Derek and I decided to check out an antique fair in Aquebogue.  I tend to keep an ongoing list of all the things I am on the hunt for. Naturally the list has grown since starting the renovation of our new home.  One thing that I was excited to cross off my list was some antique silverware from the 1940s. My 3rd lace tablecloth of the summer…I justify this by saying… Read more »

Two years ago when we were married my brother bought us this beautiful vase.   That was when I first heard of Museware Pottery.  If you are looking to give someone a different gift for their wedding or any special event this company has a variety of gifts to choose from. This vase is neutral and casual enough to keep out all year round.  In the fall I love using sunflowers because they pull out all of the golden hues… Read more »

I came across this picture today and it reminded me of one of my favorite places. Derek and I took a trip a few months back to visit his mom and her husband in Pennsylvania.  They took us to some of their regular spots, and each place made us fall in love with Bucks County more and more!  The beauty of Peace Valley Lavender Farm can not be captured with this picture, so I suggest you pack up the car… Read more »

Recently I was in one of my favorite stores in Babylon Village, Pandemonium, when I noticed these adorable little bottles of perfume.  Each bottle has a different scent and is named after different towns on the East End of Long Island.  While some scents are floral based the other scents have more of a musky and beachy scent.  All of these Beach Fragrances remind me of all the summer memories that I have growing up on the beautiful beaches of… Read more »
