Local Loves: The Big E

If you were born and raised in New England, or at least lived here for a couple of years at some point- then you’re well aware that attending the Eastern States Exposition, or “The Big E” for short- is pretty much a mandatory Autumnal activity.

My Fall Skincare/Hair Care Routine!

If you’ve been reading “Coffee & Chiffon” over the past couple of months, then there’s no mistaking Autumn is my favorite time of year- and living in New England is never more ideal than it is through September, October, and in those few crisp weeks post-Halloween that lead into the (usually) snowy Holiday Season.
