OOTD: Ruffling Feathers…

Although I’m not in any hurry for the Summer to be over anytime soon- one of my favorite end-of-the-season activities is heading up to Hampton Beach in September for their annual Seafood Festival-not only because I love a buttery lobster roll or a fresh crab cake as much as the next person- but because all […]

Embracing My Beach Body…

For most of my life, I’ve remained on the thinner/slender scope of body types. It’s partly due to genetics (my mom, grandmother, great-grandmother, so on and so forth- were all on the small side) and partly due to keeping active and eating right. In my teens and my early twenties, staying in shape was an […]

Mystical, Magical…

When I was a kid, Summer vacations always consisted of at least one trip to Mystic, Connecticut with my family- typically for a day spent at the aquarium, followed by dinner and ice cream at Olde Mistick Village across the street.

OOTD: Tropicana

One of my favorite things about living in New England is having different seasons (although I’ve never really made an earnest attempt to hide my hatred for the Winter- but it’s only because I really dislike being uncomfortably cold and shoveling snow) and I tend to fully commit to celebrating each one- be it with […]

Summer Scoops: One-Ingredient Watermelon Sorbet

I know that this upcoming Fourth of July isn’t going to be like anything we’ve grown used to in terms of celebrations here in the States. Large cookouts/BBQs, packed pool parties, busy beach days, and crowded fireworks displays are pretty much cancelled this year in states that are taking the COVID-19 pandemic seriously- but that […]
