After traveling for the first couple of weeks of July, I couldn’t be happier to be back at home with Henri. I visited my local farmer’s market and stocked up on fruits and vegetables for the house. I was inspired by some of the meals I ate in Italy and I am working on recreating healthy versions at home. Henri got a haircut this week! The third time is the charm, right?
This week marks my one year since I moved into the new space that I call home. This weekend I am overdue for a closet clean-up and donation run.
Big NEWS! I released a limited edition t-shirt with Big Frenchies! Not only are you supporting a small business with this purchase, but you are also helping the environment. The company plants a tree for each shirt purchased.
I spent a quick weekend in Boston and Maine over the weekend and it rained most of the time. I did get in a few meals but I really wish I had this guide ahead of time. Bookmarking this for next year.
There is also a documentary slated to come out, the official trailer. I am so excited to see this!
How to be a good Aunt. This is an NYT article and may require a subscription. I love my relationship with my niece and nephew. As they grow, it gets stronger, I call and they flip out screaming AUNTIE!
Last week, I panicked since my Global Entry expired while in Italy. I completely forgot TSA is linked to it as well and when I left for Boston, I was put at the back of the security line. This is a good reminder to check the expiration date of your Global Entry and Passport. I was able to renew for $100 and it was approved in less than 48 hours with no appointment. I feel very lucky!
I get a lot of questions about the packing cubes I use. These are it and they make such a BIG difference. I can pack so much in a carry-on.
How do adults make friends? I am happy this topic is being covered. If you don’t have kids and you work from home, this is harder than you think!
I went to Nordstrom this weekend to pick up a few things from the sale. I ended up grabbing two of these sports bras from Natori. I needed more sports bras and these were a great price and a brand I love and use for my regular bras. I got two tops from Zella for dance. (sized up to a M since they are short) I also picked up the Lancome primer I use for my lashes and the Neulash serum. The deal was 2 for $100 instead of the regular $200. If your lashes need a boost, I swear by this!
Tata Harper is having a birthday which means there is a big sale. Save 25% off with code BIRTHDAY25 I love the resurfacing mask and I currently have their cleanser in my shower.
Cuyana has an archive shop up and it is the perfect opportunity to grab some pieces at a discount.
Italy has joined the vaccine passport movement. Starting August 6th, you will need to show you have been vaccinated or a negative covid test.
