The Tale

On Saturday night, I went to visit and sleepover at my dear friend Arie's newer home in Evanston. We had a girl's night, which included face masks by Tony Moly, delicious and very healthy snacks prepared by Arie, and a couple of movies interrupted frequently by our typical disjointed chats, talking about everything in our… Continue reading The Tale

Organized Accessories: Part III of The Closet Diaries

Part III and the conclusion of The Closet Diaries covers my "linen closet", where I'm storing my accessories as well as my linens and towels.

So, in honor of it swiftly approaching, I thought… Continue reading Fall is Hygge

This Week in Shenanigans

This was a rather front-loaded fun week. On Thursday, I enjoyed happy hour with my colleague/friend Abbey, who is delightful, smart, mature beyond her years, and very fun to hang out with. That happy "hour" turned into a romp through Boystown, as her dad had a work event at Sidetrack, which is always a treat.… Continue reading This Week in Shenanigans
