“Vacation, All I Ever Wanted…”

Ever since I launched “Coffee & Chiffon” back in January (and it’s been a wild and unexpected journey ever since!) I’ve been posting consistently three times a week- Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays- during the good times, bad times and especially during the ongoing pandemic where generating content has been admittedly tricky but manageable during stay-at-home […]

My Summer Skincare/Hair Care Routine!

As I embark on these final weeks of Summer, I wanted to take some time to showcase my current skincare and hair care regimen- which is usually my favorite set of products to transition into every year because of how weightless they are on my skin (which is an absolute necessity in hot, humid and […]

OOTD: A Slice of Heaven…

Last weekend I had spent a beautiful, sunny day in Ogunquit, Maine for a socially distanced reunion with friends I hadn’t seen since January/February- right before the pandemic really started making waves.

When it comes to breakfast- I haven’t really […]

Summer- As Seen From the Archives…

The “On This Day” and archive features on social media are such interesting things- moreso in this ongoing age of COVID-19 and especially during the Summer. Although plenty of things I’d posted upwards to 10+ years ago are cringe-inducing- it’s bittersweet to look back on recent Summers before forced quarantines, social distancing and mandated masks […]

Local Loves: Kooks Cafe and Beach Shop

Typically when one thinks of beach-side eateries in New England- they think of lobster shacks by the docks or maybe a burger place on a bustling boardwalk- and they’re not wrong. Those places are common and usually delicious- but if you find yourself craving freshly made street tacos, an energizing smoothie bowl, or even a […]
