Fall is Upon Us (or Arrived, if You’re in my House)

I could be embarrassed with how long it has taken me to write a blog post since my last article went up, but honestly, it's for good reason. It's no secret that I'm a working Mama. I recently accepted a very generous promotion, but with a promotion comes more responsibility. Sometimes this means I work … Continue reading Fall is Upon Us (or Arrived, if You’re in my House)

Shiny, Clean Car: My Biggest Challenge Yet

Just like the beloved Daniel Tiger sings, "There are lots and lots of feelings, And we can feel them all." In this case, those feelings have most recently been about car buying. Feelings like, EXCITED: I get to get a new car! I cannot wait to get a new car! STRESSED: Which one should I pick? … Continue reading Shiny, Clean Car: My Biggest Challenge Yet

Envisioning my Dream Home: Wishlisting

When I started this blog, we had just bought our first home. We were renovating where we could (read: we are terrible handy folks so our DIY projects were primarily painting projects). Since that time, I had another baby, I started/closed my own tee shop and fell back in love with working on my personal … Continue reading Envisioning my Dream Home: Wishlisting

Home for the Holidays: Save vs. Splurge on Décor and Entertaining

Winter Window Shopping: Mommy and Me Looks

GapYes, the holidays are over, and YES, like me, you probably outspent your budget. But that doesn't mean you can't look, right? You may not be as neurotic as me, but I do love matching with my little girl from time to time. Bear in mind, I don't dress her like she's a 30-year old. … Continue reading Winter Window Shopping: Mommy and Me Looks

Glam Makeup Gifts for the Holidays

I'm a makeup addict. Perhaps it started with my Mom and her thousands of shades of lipsticks. Or maybe it was the bags of designer label makeup samples and extras my Aunt would gift my sister and I that did me in. I'm not afraid to shell out for makeup and that's because it's an … Continue reading Glam Makeup Gifts for the Holidays

Capturing Holiday Magic through Craft

It's been almost two full weeks since I last posted and that's because the holidays have consumed us. I'm certainly NOT complaining because it's that time when families come together and traditions are continued. The Longo/Kozemczak gang got together and trekked out to one of our favorite local farms to pick out our annual live … Continue reading Capturing Holiday Magic through Craft
