    I hope everyone had a great past week! I was lucky to have the entire week off from work. I headed to Long Beach Island, NJ with the boy and some friends. We had a great time. Lighthouses, dolphins, drinks and great company. It was the perfect send off to summer. Now, onto my favorite season… cue September.  View high resolution

    What is the most important room in your house? I would argue the kitchen usually, but lately I have been thinking a lot about bedrooms. They are the place you go to escape, relax, and recharge. I have always wanted to try painting my walls grey. I think the versatility the color brings is so great. I would love to decorate my bedroom with grey, blue and white. I just think the color combo is awesome. 

Picture this - Grey walls with an all white bed in the center of the room. The bed would have a BIG fluffy duvet that you could just fall into, with one deep blue accent pillow for that much needed splash of color. White bedside tables with crystal lamps and stacks of books, a light blue rug with white polka dots or swirls partially covered by the foot of the bed. How serene…

    How do you relax after a stressful day? This week has been especially stressful and I have just wanted to unwind when I get home. I find that the best way to get myself in the mindset of relaxation is to do something physical. It feels great to get your body moving after a long day behind a desk. I typically go running, but recently went kayaking and loved the serenity of it. Not to mention the great arm work out! Hello Cameron Diaz arms. And I can’t forget about my wine. I do love a good glass of red to go with the latest fashion mag! So here’s to a the time we take for ourselves. We deserve it!  View high resolution

    The weather this weekend was so beautiful - sunny, breezy and not too hot. It was a nice break from the stifling heat we’ve had all summer. It got me excited for my favorite season, Fall! I love the colors, the weather, the football and of course the food, (braut’s anyone?)  I especially can’t wait to switch out my closet and pick up a few of those fall must haves. One of the items I have already gotten my hands on are these boots by REPORT. They will go perfectly with my black shift dress and a colorful light weight scarf. Hurry up and get here Fall!
