Sherpa Coats To Bundle Up In This Winter

January 18th, 2019
Location  •   Noank, Connecticut

For a while there I thought we were going to get through this winter without even a scatter of a storm. However, it looks like that’s going to change this week, as we hunker down for an estimated 18 inches of snow. Prior to the unanticipated blizzard, my Mom and I decided to play hooky on Thursday and head down to the shoreline, Noank to be exact, to grab some seafood, fresh air and enjoy the mild weather; before getting snowed in. With that being said, I always dress for warmth and alterability during New England winters, which is…

Story And Soil Coffee Shop, In Hartford CT

January 15th, 2019
Location  •   Hartford, Connecticut

Now that Matt and I are officially back in Connecticut it’s funny to find that residents either LOVE it here or to put it politely, are patiently counting down the days, until they can leave. With each passing week, I see more young adults leaving to pursue careers in Boston as older adults simultaneously fly south to Florida for warmer weather. Leaving Connecticut feeling like a ghost town, more now than ever. Which brings me to the look Matt and I receive when we tell neighbors, friends new and old, and acquaintances that we left Dallas Texas for Connecticut.  With…

10 Step Guide To Flipping An Old House

January 14th, 2019
Location  •   Litchfield, Connecticut

  We are knee deep in fixing up our old house and if I could do it all over again, which I could see myself doing down the line, I wanted to have a guide or checklist to follow. So this post is not only a guide for you guys but also selfishly for future me! On that note, let me just say flipping an old house is not for the weak of heart, and I’ve never felt more thinly spread than I do at this moment. Yet, I find this process to be extremely rewarding, and I want…

Aubrey’s 10 Beloved Finds From 2018

January 8th, 2019

    We are one week into the new year and off to the races. And while these last couple of days have been a whirlwind, I always make time to read other blogger’s New Year’s resolutions, year in reviews and goals for the new year. I always find these articles inspiring but also so relatable, as we look back over the year. I’ve read so many of these articles in the last couple of days, including my own, and one thing seems to be a resonating theme for 2019, purchasing less and investing in more.    Which got…

How To Price Yourself Within The Influencer Industry

January 6th, 2019
Location  •   Farmington, Connecticut

The other day I went to Instagram to share an old blog post, in which I broke down everything you need to know about creating a media kit for your blog or freelance business. I figured it would be a good post to share as we entered the new year, with new goals and mindsets. I so frequently think back to my 2015 goal list, with hopes of reaching out to brands I admired and loved. Over the last four years those collaborations grew from ambassador programs to content creation and even paid long-term campaigns, but the road there…

The Tools You Need To Properly Demo Your Fixer-Upper

January 6th, 2019

  The other day I walked through the front door of our fixer-upper, to realize that all of the pieces are kind of falling into place. The popcorn ceiling is long gone along with almost every wall outlet. Looking back now, so much has changed in such a little time. We closed on our fixer-upper on Halloween 2018, and after a month of demolition nights turning into demolition weeks, we have officially started to piece back together our new home.    With that being said, I completely went into the demolition unprepared not only tool wise but also mentally. Let’s…

2018 Year End Review

January 1st, 2019
Location  •   Litchfield, Connecticut

2018, it’s been real and a little too real if you ask me. Usually, I’m sad to see a year go, along with its unique trends and quirks, but I think I’m ready to part ways with 2018. I’ve never been more exhausted, overwhelmed and astonished then I’ve been in 2018. This was one of Matt and I’s most challenging years, to say the least, yet I feel like we’ve been placed in such a good position as we head into 2019 that I can’t help but look back and thank 2018 for pushing us to be where…

Now, Christmas break is by far one of the most wonderful times of the year. Whether you’re on a college break or cashing in some of your vacation days like our crew is this week, now is the best time of year to take a break and head out on an adventure. Matt was kind enough to list off some of, what we think are, the best places to visit in New England during winter break. But before we jump into that, let’s talk about these Kiel James Patrick Sweaters, shall we!  Matt and I desperately needed to…

The Most Festive Main Streets of Connecticut During Christmas

Location  •   Litchfield, Connecticut

It’s really starting to feel like Christmas, and while the last couple of weeks have been a whirlwind, this past weekend was the perfect opportunity for our crew to wind down with work and enjoy the best of Connecticut in Christmas. During this time of year, I love exploring the surrounding towns and their Main Street’s, specifically to enjoy the decorations and shop at the locally owned stores. In fact, you can always find the best antique shops and boutiques on, or just off, the Main Streets of New England. With that being said, I wanted to share…

5 Tips For First Time Christmas Tree Buyers

December 19th, 2018
Location  •   Angevine Farm LLC

It doesn’t truly feel like Christmas until the Christmas tree is up and decorated, we can all agree on that right?! Honestly, my parents are a little TOO into the whole Christmas tree thing, and if you think I’m kidding, I’m not! With a total of seven trees, three of them freshly cut and four of them artificial; Christmas trees really symbolize the season for my family and I. So it was of no surprise to Matt and I when our apartment didn’t feel complete in December of 2016. At the time we were living in Dallas, far…
