Pamper Yourself with India Hicks

May 17, 2018

How do I begin to express my admiration for India Hicks?    I have known about her for years and, like many of us, have avidly followed her design and lifestyle trendsetting ideas.  I am a sun lover and have fantasized about building a house in the tropics for years.   So, naturally, I’ve gazed endlessly at India’s Bahamian paradise of a home and have applauded her for being brave enough to build a beautiful and rich life on a tiny…

Three Wedding Guest Looks for Spring!!

May 15, 2018

As a wedding photographer, I always really enjoy seeing what the guests wear to the wedding — obviously the bride is the star, but I think it’s a really fun occasion to dress up and for everybody to feel their best together!  We’re attending two weddings as guests this summer and I am already plotting away.   Of course I couldn’t resist the opportunity to show off a few teaser pieces from our favorite local store, Hampden.   This first pink number…

Collector’s Corner: Essential Placemats

May 14, 2018

May 11, 2018

Effortless Wrap Dress for Summer

May 10, 2018

Earlier this week, Will and I introduced a new column on the sidebar of the homepage — “snapshots” — which is going to be updated daily with pretty photos, behind the scenes videos and snaps of my latest outfits/beauty tricks.   We are planning to continue with some of our more home-based content (like entertaining, collecting, decorating), but didn’t want to lose sight of the fun of discovering a new clothing or jewelry brand, an easy to wear dress or a…

Wines for the Weekend!

May 9, 2018

I know that it comes as no surprise that Will and I really enjoy drinking wine!   At one point last year when I was just starting to appear more regularly in front of the camera my mom (and dad) pointed out (separately) that I had a glass of wine in hand perhaps a bit too often 😉  — nerves I say ! Regardless, Will and I are totally casual and relaxed about our wine education; by no means are we…
