Sweet Little Nothings {October Favorites}

I’ts been ages since I’ve done one of these, but I just wanted to share a quick rooundup of all the things that made me smile during the month of Otcober. Enjoy!


This awesomely tacky faux fur wrap from Zara. It’s a slight departure from my normal style, but saw it as I was leaving the store and couldn’t resist rushing back to the cash register to bring it home with me.


Exploring my new neighborhood in Washington Heights. Eric and I lived her for a couple of years when we first got married, but we moved back last month after being away for 7 years! We’ve fallen in love with it all over again and continue to discover new things almost every day.


There’s nothing I love more this time of year than curling up with a good book and a mug of hot cocoa. It’s like PopSugar Must Have read my mind when they sent me this month’s #MustHaveBox to try. And because sharing is caring, here’s $5 off your FIRST Must Have Box with code SHOP5.

Fall Foliage in Upstate New York

Watching the leaves turn this time of year is always a treat. I’m still bummed I missed out on apple picking this season, but this stunning view in Upstate New York more than made up for it.


And last, but defnitely not least… I celebrated my birthday this month! We kept things pretty low-key this year, but I enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Per Se with a cozy table for two overlooking Columbus Circle and Central Park. And afterwards, we went to the Metropolitan Opera to watch Mozart’s Don Giovanni.



Sweet Little Nothings

Man, the first week back to work after a long vacation is always the toughest! I’ve been ripping and running nonstop, and I’m looking forward to relaxing and unwinding this weekend. You may recognize some of these if you follow me on Instagram, but here area few things that are making me smile as of late…

IMG_20150105_175728 It’s been a while since my last international adventure, but I still couldn’t resist this adorable passport holder from H&M.

IMG_20150105_173937 Speaking of travel…

I was dusting off my bookshelf when I realized I’ve grown quite the collection of travel guides over the years (this is only a fraction of the pile). I’m really into the power of positive thinking and manifesting thoughts into reality, and one of my tricks is to immediately purchase  a travel guide the second I get a yearning to visit someplace new. I like to read up on all of the local sites and customs and visualize myself being there. It’s worked so far, and I’ve visited each place for which I’ve bought a guide (with two exceptions that I’ll hopefully fulfill in the next 12 months).

IMG_20150107_234057As of late, I pretty much stick to the same pieces of jewelry each day. However, I was perusing some of my old blog pics and immediately started crushing on this combo from a couple of years ago. I think I’ll be revisiting this look soon.

IMG_20150108_202800 Oh, and if you didn’t know, I definitely have a favorite type of shoe. I’ll give you one guess what it is. The mint green pair at the top are the most recent addition to my collection, and I can’t wait to prance around in them this spring!

IMG_20150105_194050 And lastly, sometimes the best things in life come in little blue boxes.

One of the biggest changes I made early last year was finally going into business for myself (you can check out my company’s site here). It’s been one of the most rewarding and challenging things I’ve ever done, and I couldn’t be happier. To celebrate my first year of business success, I decided to treat myself to a little something from Tiffany’s.

I hope you enjoy your weekends, peeps! Make it a good one!
