I've always been fascinated with the story of my great-grandfather's escape, but I didn't start incorporating Jewish traditions into my household until a few years ago.
I just want to be clear -- right off the bat -- I'm not a practicing Jew. Like any child with a secular-raised father and a Catholic mother...we were raised Presbyterian. Sure, why not. I've never been bat mitzvahed, but the first curse words I learned were in Yiddish (thanks Grandma and Grandpa!). I didn't grow up...
Fun parties. Easy cleanup. Minimal effort. Have we gotten your attention? We went LIVE with Amazon last week to talk easy, effortless, last-minute holiday entertaining...and our list of foolproof, get-together stuffs is GOOD. Even for non-entertainers! Which is kind of the point: having a short list of items that can be used everyday, but also help pull together a...
We've rounded up seriously cute & seriously useful items for your Star Baker. So, in homage to our favorite quirky show in a tent...our top baking-inspired gifts for the GBBO fan.
There's nothing better than curling up on a cozy winter day and binge watching some Bake Off. Nothing. Better. When you hear that comforting sound the little stir of the cake batter makes and watch the careful placement of the raspberry on the cake top in the opening credits? Swoon. I contemplated working 'soggy bottom' into the article title...
Whether you're hanging on the porch, at sidewalk restaurant, in the backyard, or at an outdoor family gathering...these pieces will help you stay pretty, festive & most importantly...warm.
Last year we were super-focused on cozy-ing up our outdoor hangs...and it dawned on me that we need these warm, comfy pieces every year! Whether you're hanging on the porch, at an outdoor restaurant, in the backyard, at an outdoor family gathering...these pieces will help you stay pretty, festive and most importantly...warm. Pretty Gifts For Cozy Porch, Patio &...
Traditional Black Friday will come with the usual sales, but it'll be hit or miss. If there ARE Black Friday deals, think low inventory + hot ticket items that sell out quickly + a series of flash sale periods -- starting now -- as things pop in (& out) of stock.
There's no doubt that some serious shopping happens every November. Not only can we see it via our own analytics (we luv data), but based on the sheer number of Black Friday articles already published...retailers all over are gearing up. Even Nordstrom who, once upon a time, insisted on waiting until after Thanksgiving to pull out holiday decor, has published...
Penzeys' pre-mixed chili seasoning! It's my foolproof "cheat" for the most delicious chili. Happily, this chili is delicious, fast & easy.
My chili is far superior to Shana's. And it’s not because mine is typically a meat-based chili and hers is vegan; mine can be made vegan, too! My recipe is just...well...better. She might admit this obvious fact if you ask when not too many people are around (ha, ha), although she did request I post my chili recipe after my...
We've put together an easily-digestible list of 15 eco-friendly swaps that are super-easy. This list makes it way easy to go plastic-free, for a more sustainable home.
Anyone else trying to rid their home of single-use plastics? Us too. And while an iced coffee with a straw may seem harmless (as well as all of those takeout bags, candy wrappers and coffee lids), plastic pollution is a real threat, one that clogs our waste streams and landfills, litters our beaches and parks, and, ultimately, harms marine...
Found: a bunch of dark, creepy(ish) home decor pieces that work SO well in terms of spooky Halloween, but also if you just love some added darkness in your space. Let's get moody.
If you're a lover of all things black, you're gonna love this. (Even if you're not that into Halloween and just want some dark decor to liven? deaden? haha, up your space....) I put together a similar post all about elegant Halloween decor last year (and a ton of it is still in stock and just as cute a...
The Opalhouse x Jungalow collection harnesses a bohemian vibe mixed with unexpected details, colors & shapes, + it's... really cool.
For me, with every new season comes the interest in updating/adding to my space somehow, which can sometimes be a struggle to carry out affordably. I tend to browse Target for collaborations just like this one because their in-house brands (like Opalhouse) always have something way cute (and crazy similar to Anthropologie/West Elm etc.,) for way less. It's such...
I’m actually low-key obsessed with shopping on QVC.com. I scored a kitchen item I’ve been wanting for years (truly) + a few other items perfect for cozy autumn weekends.
Sponsored by QVC and ShopStyle Collective I have to admit, I’m actually low-key obsessed with shopping on QVC.com.  It started sometime last year when I was pregnant and had insomnia; during all hours of the night, I found it soothing to browse the featured deals on QVC when I was unable to sleep. It quickly became one of my favorite ways...
