Sharing some photos as of late… mainly last week when my mom was in town visiting!

I cherish the times she comes to visit & am so thankful for our time together in the city. I stayed with her for 2 nights at The Surrey — I ADORE this hotel. It’s so fun to stay in an area of the city that I don’t typically spend much time in — especially during Christmas time. It was such a treat and had the most stunning views.


^Paper Sugar + Target wrapping paper! So beautifully wrapped by my momma 🙂

There were so many beautiful home stores on the Upper East Side my favorite being Lexington Gardens. I was ooo-ing and aww-ing the entire time.





More UES + our walk Tuesday towards Midtown…





We had a late lunch at BG on Tuesday and made our way to Soho for some shopping before ending with happy hour at the Bowery Hotel & dinner at Pepolino.

The cutest pop-up store we stopped in Soho: aerie — it’s part of American Eagle and was SO adorable. I loved all the PJs, socks and bralettes.




Wednesday morning we had brunch at Sarabeth’s — a must in NYC. I love the one on the Upper East Side that we went to but there are locations all over the city. Their english muffins are unlike any english muffin you’ve had before {so fluffy!} paired with the most delicious jam. We walked back by Central Park – chilly but so pretty!


Annnd a couple more photos from this weekend – we had the best time with my in-laws Friday and some friends who are moving away on Saturday. Rosemary’s never disappoints {caprese foccacia + lemon pasta, please!} — I’ve never been at Christmas time and it was so beautiful + festive!


Bow bell sleeved sweater is from Chicwish on sale for $53!

Richard and I are doing our Christmas Day in the city today & head to Cincy later this week. So looking forward to spending time with my family & some of our favorite friends 🙂 Cheers! xx


  1. Merry Christmas!!
