Eventide for food, The Bling Tiger Hotel to stay, lighthouses for play...our 36 hours in Portland, Maine...a relaxing, family friendly getaway.
This past April, we spent a lovely weekend in Portland, Maine. Portland has long been on my bucket list, but I always imagined visiting in the summer. We were a little hesitant to go in early April....Portland can be really cold, the locals often refer to it as 'mud season,' and when one adds in further complications (and closures)...
Flattering high-rise hiking shorts, waterproof Danner boots, a lightweight jacket...we've found a cute women's hiking outfit that's totally worth it.
I'm not hugely athletic (literally participated in zero team sports as a kid -- zero!), but if there's one activity that I've pursued somewhat consistently throughout my childhood and my adult life, it's hiking. It's such a fun, fast way for me to clear my head while moving my body -- and for some reason, no matter how strenuous,...
My kids no longer turn into complete monsters after screen time. They actually play video games, watch movies, make Spotify playlists & listen to Audible books TOGETHER without fighting (which is lovely).
If you, like me, have completely stepped over to the dark side in allowing (and even encouraging!!) tech toys on road trips, read on. If you have young kids who you’re trying to keep off devices in the car, because they turn into screen-time monsters (like mine did for SOOOOOOO many years), stop reading this post immediately! Take a...
We're optimistically looking ahead to a Cape Cod vacay. Linen pants, gingham dresses & more are on my tried-+-true summer beach packing list.
It's been a long time (approximately one feral child ago) since I put together a packing list for a vacation. Growing up in New Jersey, we would make an annual winter trip down to Florida to visit my grandparents -- including the one pilgrimage to Disney World many northern children take in their lifetime -- and one week on...
Traveling w/ kids during the pandemic? Risky, but we did it. Our tips, lessons & packing essentials for flying (airport, plane + rental car) that made it (feel) a bit safer.
As someone who loves to travel, this year-long quarantine has given me (among other things) a mad case of wanderlust. The good news is that the more people who get vaccinated and COVID rates go down, the more travel opportunities will start to pop up. We had a chance to fly from Philly to Colorado recently with the...
...and it's 40% off right now! I could waste no time in telling you about this beautiful lightweight Halogen cashmere wrap that's currently at Nordstrom. I've been seeing ads for other wraps all over my social media right now because algorithms get me...heh. So, I promptly snapped this one up when I saw it...and it's so good. Summer Outfits, Meet...
The best & most unexpectedly wonderful shoes for spring are a sweet pair of Blundstone original chelsea boots! They'll bring out your inner puddle-jumping kid, too.
It’s springtime; the birds are singing louder, the sun feels warmer, and there is increasingly more light in the sky with each passing day. You’re about to go outside to soak up some much needed vitamins after the winter, and as you head to the door you slip on your favorite pair of boots. BOOTS? Surely, you meant sandals. Nope! Believe...
It's the kind of ski suit I've always wanted, way back when I was fan-girling about hot snowboarders (married to 1 now--#goals) + dreaming of being part of the "in" ski crowd.
For years now I have been so jealous of Shana & Mike's Epic Ski Adventures with their boys. My brother Adam and his family also ski...so it almost seemed like there was some sort of great conspiracy that allowed them to go on amazing ski vacations together. In her defense, though, Shana has been pressuring encouraging us to get...
As the winter wraps up, our Outdoorsy People love to stock up on gear for all seasons at a discount. We've culled Backcountry for our skiing, camping, hiking (& even lounging!) favs.
As the winter season starts to wrap up, I know our Outdoorsy People (hi, Shana) love to stock up on gear for next year at a discount. Outdoor Gear & Cozy Pieces: Our Favs On Sale At Backcountry Backcountry always has a TON of stuff (and much of it ends up on sale), you just need to know how to...
I packed cute layers to wear by the fire & wore them the whole time: my fav leggings, crazy warm + water-resistant campfire booties, a comfy hoodie + a cozy hat.
Thank you to Backcountry & ShopStyle for sponsoring this post. The weather has been unseasonably warm here this year and thank GOD because we're all going a little stir-crazy. We had a TON of snow last year at this time, but this year we can actually sit around a campfire (that's not buried under all the snow) without freezing. Which...
