VQ Speaker Giveaway

September 23, 2016
VQ UK Hepburn MK II speaker

 I got so many amazing, insightful replies to my survey earlier this month. The one thing I got asked for more than anything in regards to giveaways was to offer a chance to win the things I love most and use every day (which is basically what I always do, but it really inspired me to think more of my everyday essentials!). I am obsessed with my VQ Hepburn MK II speaker – every morning I connect my phone via Bluetooth…

5 Tips to Never Overpack Again

Tips to never overpack again: how to pack a carry on only for Europe travels

It only took me one trip to very quickly promise myself to never travel again with more than just a carry-on. Spending a few months travelling around Europe alone with luggage that quickly fell apart on itself, that weighed a ton and that was always delayed coming out of my many flights quickly became a literal pain in the ass. Well actually, a pain in my back (no wonder I have back problems now). That trip was the best thing…

The Edge of Fall

How to layer jewelry in Swarovski jewelry, Aritzia suede pencil skirt, Aritzia black camisole, Mackage leather jacket, Express black heels and Aritzia Wilfred fringe leather bag

 I know Miss Rhode Island is all about April 25th (please tell me you’re as big of a Miss Congeniality fan as I am), but for me, there’s something about this part of the year when we’re just tiptoeing into the edge of fall that’s so special. As I look outside now, the sun’s out, the leaves are just starting to turn and I’m sipping on some tea to beat the slight nip in the air. In other words, it’s the…

The Studio

Airy studio space decor tips with marble coffee table, grey minimalist armchair, jute rug and Moroccan pouf by Article furniture

 Blogging can surprisingly be pretty solitary work. Long hours spent at your laptop doing emails, getting posts up, editing pictures, etc. Unless your blog’s a group effort or you have employees (though on that front, I will be hiring an intern on for the first time soon, so if you or someone you know might be a good fit, message me!), you’re going to be alone for long stretches of time until you have meetings and the like. That’s why…

The Dailey Series: 4 Moves to Toned Legs

September 15, 2016
Barre workout for toned legs

 As you guys might know, after years of playing more high-impact sports or workouts like soccer or running, I got wiped out about a year ago now for the first time with a brutal back injury (only to have another one happen right as 2016 rolled around!). I had to relearn how to be strong in my body since the things I usually would do were off-limits for the time being and the first thing that really clicked for me was The…

My First Yoga Retreat

September 14, 2016
Best yoga retreats in British Columbia, Canada: Nectar Yoga B&B on Bowen Island

 Last week, Alicia & I took off for what would be an adventure of firsts in many respects. My first time on Bowen Island…both of our first times at a yoga retreat…and a first time really connecting with yoga, which surprised me because I’ve done it so much for so long. The magic all went down at Nectar Yoga B&B, which is literally a hop, skip and a jump away from Vancouver on beautiful Bowen Island. I’m always passing Bowen…
