The shift is subtle, until we’re suddenly acutely aware: Crumpled leaves litter the ground, school buses begin their early morning rumble, and apples, squash, and dark leafy greens start their farmer’s market takeover. Read more »

I love the thought of lipstick, and everyday I'm closer to making a purchase but I definitely need to do some research on how to wear lipstick and have it be practical. Like, with all of the fruit roll ups I eat and straws I drink from or boyfriend kisses. Maybe I'll just have to live and learn (& then blog about it!) Warm Regards, Alexandra

Could you also possibly list all of the makeup from the first picture? Seriously I need those in my life. Beautiful!

Post image for How to Pack The Perfect Carry On Bag

I’ve been traveling since before my memory even serves. Road trips and flights were a regular thing in my family, and for a while, a bag sat at the foot of my bed, always half-packed or half-unpacked, depending on how you looked at it. Read more »

Love this post - so so helpful, and insightful. I would never think to bring aboard an empty water bottle- you are a genius. Warm Regards, Alexandra

Great tips! I would add a pair of leggings rolled up tight. I spilled a cup of coffee on myself years ago and it was really nice to have something to change into.

Post image for Home Tour: Senior Designer, FP Movement

While in California a couple of weeks ago, I jumped at the opportunity to visit our FP Movement designer at her home in Inverness, California.  I had heard how amazing it was beforehand, but had never seen any photos.  Read more »

Stunning home, and beautiful interview. It was great to read about a south shore gal - I went to Bridgewater State and I too adore the MA shorelines & the Cape of course! The light blue trim on the house reminds me of the Cape :) After checking out her husband's furniture it's so obvious they are a match made in heaven - loved his stuff- very turn of the century. Love love love Warm Regards, Alexandra

Post image for The Benefits Of Eating Fossils

It’s true: I eat fossils every day.

I know you’re thinking, “Brigette. Girl. What are you talking about.” Allow me to introduce you to a little gold mine known as diatomaceous earth. Read more »

Tamie -Aug 27, 2014, 7:40AM
I live me some fossils too. I got into it years ago from a Blessed Herbs bowel cleanse and I saw it work its (sometimes startling) magic. That was DE and psyllium husk which is the fiber to push it out, since DE alOne can be constipating. Since then I have used the bottles kind you can find on amazon... For upset stomach and to throw in the bath for a clay detox.

I've sprinkled this on carpeting before, to help with a flea infestation. I love that it's a (highly effective) natural alternative to those chemical bug bombs that most people use for fleas in their home. And totally safe for pets! love it. I never knew it was edible, though. <3 dani

I'm about to move to Paris for 3 months, by myself, without knowing a single soul. It's going to be difficult but everyone needs to learn how to be alone sometimes. But when in doubt....I run to my boyfriend, Netflix :)
Summer -Aug 27, 2014, 5:17PM
Jana.. we have the same feelz. I still struggle with this kind of stuff. I'm so used to being a do-er and rushing from A to B to C to F and then Z! Once I am able to stop and pause I just don't know what to do with myself. Reading helps or exploring or I try to restyle areas of my home with already existing stuff. Yesterday I was home alone and just decided to completely redo my fiancé's nightstand. He has this giant wolf head statue and I was tired of it being on my side of the room. It took about an hour and a half but I feel like HGTV specialist in training now and it gave his side of the room a more masculine vibe. you're place already seems decked out with adorable-ness but small home projects or hand made anythings bring me incredible joy. Thanks for the words of wisdom xoxo Summer

Bananas. They’re one of those foods that we often take for granted, always there in the fruit bowl next to the apples, turning brown more quickly than I would prefer. Read more »

Post image for Monday Quote: Don’t Stumble

“Don’t Stumble Over Something Behind You.” Read more »

Maya -Aug 26, 2014, 8:26PM
I have to say that this quote really resonates with me, especially in light of some recent life events. My fiancé and I recently moved. The move went well, but we ended up having a bit of a disagreement with the neighbors where they accused us of doing something something that we didn't. This really, really bothered me and although things are better, it has made it a lot tougher to develop a relationship with our neighbors. Luckily my fiancé really took the initiative to help move us past this event.
Dee -Aug 25, 2014, 9:13PM
This is such a great saying to focus on for the week ahead. I agree that "There’s no need to waste energy and feelings on problems that are already behind you. If it’s fixed, let it be fixed." I think this also applies to things that you have no control over. DW |
