Traveling can be stressful, especially if you're a rookie. Take it from a girl who hadn't left the US for the first time until 2013. I have also dreaded and avoided layovers like some kind of plague. Luckily, traveling is like anything else, the more you do it, the easier it becomes. Since meeting, dating, and marrying my British husband, I have sp...

You don't have to be in a reading routine or a reading rut to need a good book recommendation! I also find myself "judging a book by it's cover", which I'll be honest, has lead to some real let downs (this feels like a dating metaphor). If you're like me, then having someone to make a recommendation leaves you feeling a lot more hopeful. Here are t...

To Botox or not to Botox? Maybe you know someone who has had it, or maybe you've have it yourself. It's been around for about 17 years now and it turns out, It's not just for those trying to turn back time anymore. Have you heard of "preventative Botox" yet?

Let me start by explaining the name of this recipe. Eton is a private college in Berkshire, England. And by private, I mean Prince William and Prince Harry attended...Rumor has it the dessert started at Eton College in 1893 when it was served at the annual cricket match (so British).

So, I thought I'd give arm knitting a try. I kept seeing it on Pinterest as well as a couple of friends posting their cozy-looking, chunky blankets, so I asked for a big ball of yarn for Christmas (how old am I?!). It seemed easy. Only 45-minutes according to all the youtube videos. I thought I'd enjoy the experience. Let me be very honest and say,...

Incase you're not sure where Cornwall is, it's a county on England's Southwestern tip with hundreds of beaches, cliffs, and charming towns where the seafood, cheese, and fudge are all you can dream about. It holds a special place in my heart, as this is where my husband and I got engaged in October 2015. It's been over a year since my last visit so...

If you're the age I think you are, chances are all of your friends (and maybe even you) are getting engaged! You may have even had the honor of being asked to be IN the wedding. If this is your first time around the wedding wheel, then you have lots to learn! Allow me to share with you some ingredients to the recipe for a successful (and classy) ba...

Sometimes routines feel like ruts, but when it comes to healthy skincare, routine is key! Nail the products you love and it'll feel less like a chore. I'm always open to trying something new, but also a creature of habit, so when I find something that works for me, I stick with it! I'll share with you some of the things from my morning routine...
