Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]
Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]
For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
This past weekend we headed out east to spend the weekend at Jon’s parents’ house. We wanted it to be a relaxing weekend with most of our time spent in the pool, but I had just heard of the North Fork Sunflower Maze at Sidor Farms and needed to see it! My sister mentioned it […]
This weekend we had zero plans so on Friday I decided that one of our activities for the weekend had to be going to Silly Lily Marina in East Moriches. It was about a 45 min drive from where I live and a little bit before you hit the Hamptons. It use to just be […]
For the longest time whenever I have been asked where I live I always tell people, “Well I live on Long Island now, but I grew up in Manhattan.” Gotta keep up that city cred! Plus when main stream America sees Long Island Princesses on Bravo, I think I need to clarify that I’m so […]
Sometimes you just want to head to Brooklyn and drink some tea with hipsters and now thanks to the Williamsburg Hotel you can just do that! This weekend we headed off to Williamsburg on Royal Wedding Day aka Saturday! Fascinators and crazy British accents were put on and we enjoyed a delightful couple of hours […]
Who doesn’t love when the Serena & Lily catalog hits your mail box. They always do the best job with their styling and photography making you want to live in the Serena & Lily catalog. Do you know what’s even better than the catalog? Getting to see one of their stores in person! We daytripped […]
Let’s be honest sometimes playing with your kids just isn’t fun. There I said it! There is only so much I know about Minecraft to talk about and constantly battling super hero’s just isn’t always my jam. So, while I love my boys dearly I’m constantly trying to get them to do more arts and […]
This weekend we happily wandered upon beautiful Heritage Farm & Garden in Muttontown, NY. Typically during the fall season we head out east to one of the many pumpkin picking farms. We always enjoy it, but it’s a 2 hour drive out and then lots of traffic once you get out east and then the […]
I love finding local gems. Places that I happily wander upon and while I would love to keep them as my little secret instead I get so excited I tell everyone! My latest gem is Rudy’s Kitchen. I live in Nassau County on Long Island and we don’t have a lot of farm land. At […]
My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.
Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.
On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.
