Friday Faves of January

Woo! January you flew by and this blog was a bit neglected. I will be trying to post more in February (there is an extra day!).  It's going to be unseasonably warm next week so it's shaping to be a good start to February. Here are my faves of this month from around the web. I'll be Tweeting for the SAG Awards Saturday night - join me!

Fashion x Football

We are gearing up for the Patriots vs. Broncos game on Sunday in these parts(!!), so I am loving the CFDA x NFL collaboration with 50 designers creating some fabulous footballs in honor of Super Bowl 50 this year.  My favorites include Alice + Olivia (so on brand), Clare V.,  Lem Lem, Tanya Tailor, and Rebecca Minkoff, but check them all out over at Harper's Bazaar. Which do you like?

Our week in Mexico

Cancun beach
Monday we returned from a week of sun, sand, and fun in Cancun, Mexico. I haven't been that chill and relaxed in so long, and it was amazing! After a stressful and busy fall, DC and I both needed it.  I read 4 books(!), I highly recommend Luckiest Girl Alive, Me Before You & After You, and enjoyed myself a mango daiquiri (or a few...).  It was a great way to reflect on 2015 and ring in 2016.

New Year's Eve!
And now, back to reality!


2015 in review

Every New Year's Eve, I like to look back on the soon-to-be ending year and remember all the fun times had...It was quite a year and next year already has some amazing things in the works (I am getting married!!!).

January kicked off sharing pictures from our trip to Punta Cana and despite the winter weather, it's a good month because, awards season! We chatted about the Golden Globes and SAG Awards fashions.

February, went down in history for the snowiest winter EVER in Boston, and I needed some inspiration from the cold and seemingly-never-ending winter. I started guest posting over at The Boston Day Book sharing my first day trip to Newport, RI. I also did a Valentine's Day collaboration with Tiny Prints.

I went to New Orleans in March which was a blast and delicious! I shared my updated bathroom on a budget and looked forward to spring with looks inspired by Jimmy Choo's ad campaign.
April kicked off with some beauty loves and bridal shower gift ideas.

May was such a fun month starting with DC and I spending a long weekend in West Palm Beach, FL. I celebrated my 30th birthday(!), went to Broomfield Antique Show, and shared my Whole30 experience from March-April. At the end of the month, I went on a bday spa trip to Sedona, AZ with my mom. I shared those photos in June.

Ah, July, you were the best as it's the month I got engaged! Not much can top this month so let's leave it at that. :)

In August, I was in full on wedding planning mode, so I shared some "will you be my bridesmaid?" card ideas.  I also posted on our time in Kennebunkport, ME, for family fun & a family wedding, and DC and my amazing dinner at Earth.

September, you were aweomse too! My brother got married; I got a sister in law! I also traveled to Ft. Worth, TX.

In October, I shared some wedding updates, visited Martha's Vineyard for work and posted on my cleansing experience with Nourish Your Soul.

November kicked off with our engagement photos taken in Southie. My annual guest blogger My Stocking holiday gift guide series started and continued into December. This past month, I also shared our save the date postcard and participated in the #BostonPotluck series. And here we are ending December and 2015 with this recap!

Wow, 2015 you were good to me. 2016, I can't wait for ya.

Have a happy and safe New Year!


Friday Faves of the Month (on a Monday!)

Happy New Year card

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas (if you celebrated)! DC and I spent the day at my mom's where we had a fun morning of gift exchange and then relaxed all day. It was so nice after the move and unpacking

We are off today for more relaxation with a week in Cancun, and today is DC's birthday! Here are my faves of December. I have another post scheduled for later this week but other than that, see you all in 2016!
