The Easiest Appetizer for Your Next Homebody Night In

Food and Wine, Happy Hour

It’s entirely possible to be a homebody and still have a social life and travel as much as we do. I guess maybe that’s why we like being homebodies sometimes. It’s nice to actually not have plans. That being said, I am still one for creating moments at home that feel just as special as […]

New Ways to Wear Your OTK Boots


I have to admit that when I considered buying a pair of OTK (over-the-knee) boots, I thought that I might be too old for them. Would I look like I’m trying too hard? Is this something that should be left for the under 30 crowd? My first recollection of OTK boots is from the movie […]

The Seine, those baguettes, French wine, ooh la la…(I’ve never heard an actual French person say ooh la la, by the way). I find inspiration in all things Parisian, but one thing I’m always studying is what Parisian […]
