Confession

Hello Upper Eastsiders. I’ve long been a fan of Gossip Girl. Between the fashion and intrigue, I’ve stayed with the show through its rough patches(and there have been a lot) and in the spirit of full disclosure, will most likely watch it no matter how terrible it gets (Vanessa & Nate?).

Potting Plants

Growing up, my mom always had potted plants on the front porch. Every year, she’d ask for new flowers for Mother’s Day. In the summer, brightly colored petunias and geraniums dressed up our porch and back patio.

A Colorful Life

Interior design has a habit of mirroring fashion trends, and one of the new ways to update your home this season is with bright colors. Sound familiar? My house is primarily a study in neutrals with the occasional pop of color. For some reason, the idea of incorporating vibrant colors can seem a little intimidating to me,… Continue reading A Colorful Life
