A visit to Cooper Hewitt Museum

To be honest, I didn't really have much of a reason for adding Cooper-Hewitt to my New York City bucket list. I think I maybe saw a photo of the facade of the mansion on Instagram and thought--hmm, what is this beautiful ivy-colored brick wall in the...

A weekend in the Berkshires

The Berkshires is easily my favorite weekend escape from New York City, mostly because of how relaxing and laid-back it is. I swear my big city anxiety melts away the minute I breath in that fresh country air! And unlike many weekend destinations...

A girls weekend in Philly: on video!

Sneak peek of our girls weekend of flowers and photos in Philadelphia! We had the best time drinking prosecco, frolicking through fields of tulips, and catching up on all the things as we strolled through the surprisingly vibrant downtown. More...

Date night: Amateur Night at the Apollo!

One item on my list of all the things I can’t believe I haven’t done in New York City: Amateur Night at the Apollo Theater. In general, Harlem is an area that I've really neglected in my time in New York City: although I know there are tons of...

The best of Secret Bay

Secret Bay is basically what honeymoon dreams are made of: personal staff, plunge pools and private villas overlooking the Caribbean. It comes as no surprise that we are very much beach people: my idea of the perfect unplugged vacation involves a...
