Hello! This weekend I’m excited because my mom is coming to stay with me and we’re going to squeeze in two really fun things that we do every year (if you’ve been following for a while, you know) – the Kips Bay Showhouse and the Met Costume Exhibit. I can’t … Read more ››

Those of us who live in small spaces count our lucky stars if we have an entryway – or at least a space where you can fashion an entryway of sorts! This is one of the things that I love about my current apartment – there’s a little cutout area in the … Read more ››

A Few Good Links

This week I discovered the joys of walking an adorable little puppy (as you may have seen on my Insta stories), continued on the Hello Fresh train (let me know if you’re interested in hearing/seeing more about that either here or on Stories), and mulled a lot of things over (hashtag vague). … Read more ››
