One of the reasons why I blog is simply to have the space to write: getting things “on paper” helps me to process my feelings and organize my thoughts. I also love having a record of my life over the past few years: a place that holds all of my stories, my photos, the ups and downs of travel. But sometimes, I also just want to remember and share the little things that brought me day-to-day joy. Every Friday, I’ll give you a peek into the book I currently can’t put down, a great restaurant discovery, a fun new product or an inspiring quote: a few things that I think you might enjoy before we all take off into the glory that is the weekend!Gertie the pug eating al fresco   We’ve officially hit the sticky part of summer in New York City: it is so gosh darn hot here right now! I can’t remember the last time I blow-dried my hair or actually wore it in anything other than a topknot, and I’ve realized that it just doesn’t make sense to wear makeup–I sweat it all off the minute I walk outside. That said, I absolutely love hot weather (the humidity, not so much) so I’ve been enjoying getting outside for bike rides, al fresco dinners and evening walks around the neighborhood. The snow will be here before we know it, so we have to enjoy this now!

Postcard from the streets of Cannes

I’m still in a bit of disbelief over the events in Nice last week. Six years ago on Bastille Day, I drank champagne and watched the fireworks with friends on that very same promenade. I was in Cannes just a few weeks ago, and I head back to Paris in a few more weeks: France is heavy […]

Notes on having it all

Whereas previous generations of women might have been raised to be wives and mothers, it feels like today we grow up aiming to have it all: career, relationship, kids, house, and Instagram-envy-inducing vacations as the cherry on top. There is a lot said in our society about having it all. It’s almost always in reference to women, […]

A weekend in the Berkshires (with Gertie!)

Spending a July weekend in the Berkshires has become one of my favorite summer traditions. My boyfriend’s family goes up every year, and it’s such a nice, relaxing weekend away from the city. The weather wasn’t great–overcast and rainy for most of the weekend–but we still squeezed in a canoe ride, a BBQ and a […]

Postcard from the Cannes market

Market culture is one of my favorite things about France: when I lived in Nice, I used to go shopping at the local market a few times a week, discovering new ingredients like zucchini flowers and stocking up on plenty of fresh strawberries and tomatoes. I love the fresh, seasonal produce and the copious amount and […]
