A Tour of Our NYC Apartment: Dining Area + Living Room

February 13, 2018 8 comments

Travis and I finally feel settled in our new home, and today I’m so excited to give you a (virtual) tour of our NYC apartment. We moved to New York City from Santa Monica, CA at the end of October, but as you may remember, it took over one month for us to receive our belongings from the cross-country movers. By the time we unpacked and found the right pieces of furniture for our new apartment, it was already the middle of the holiday season. We hosted a housewarming party at the beginning of January, during which many of my friends urged me to write a post about our apartment. I was flattered because, to be honest, I never considered myself much of an interior decorator, but I have loved putting this apartment together.

How to Eat Healthy on a Budget Graphic with Text

At the beginning of the new year many people are trying to eat healthier and save money. After a long holiday season of indulgences and spending money on gifts for others, it’s understandable that so many of us are trying to cut back. There is a common misconception that eating healthy is expensive, and some people think it’s not a realistic option for their family given the price. I’m here to tell […]

You guys, I just realized that my last monthly “What I’m Loving Lately” post was from JULY! Where the heck has time gone!? When I look back on the last three months, it’s crazy to think about how much has happened. Let’s recap: I decided to spend the last few weeks of August (right before our wedding) with my parents in Maine. I had numerous wedding-related appointments on the east […]
