Before ordering the Leather Travel Case Set from Cuyana I had been toting most of my makeup products around in various bags from the “free with purchase” offers at the mall makeup counters.

Travelling Light: Washington, D.C. Packing List

Last time we visited Washington, D.C. the weather was in the nineties and I packed lots of tanks, dresses, and shorts. For this trip, the highs were barely above freezing, which meant there would be no easy packing list repeat. Instead I relied on my most recent packing list for Providence, RI for inspiration. As usual, …

A Quick Trip to Washington, D.C.

We may have been a little dramatic in our Instagram stories (listed under “highlights” for now) while waiting to board our very delayed flight to Washington, D.C., but to be fair by the time we boarded, we were already supposed to have landed.

Five Easy Hairstyles for Travel (that aren’t a messy bun or ponytail!)

Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

We used to celebrate Valentine’s Day in the Hallmark way: cards, flowers, chocolate, jewelry, and a mandatory “nice” dinner.

It’s certainly a strange holiday (here’s a brief history, if you’re wondering), yet we still acknowledge …

We’ve crossed the halfway mark in the Winter 10 x 10 Challenge! (Not sure what that means? Be sure to start here). Let’s jump in to outfits four through six, shall we?

Hi 10 x 10 Friends! Three days down, seven to go. I’ve really enjoyed seeing everyone’s item choices and outfit combinations so far (although I think my favorite ones are always towards the end of the ten days, where we all have to get a little extra creative to change things up)! At the end …
