How did you get into blogging?

Matt typically has to work long hours with his job and I on the other hand go in early and end at 3pm each day, way before any of my friends. I found myself with hours of time that I wasn’t using that productively, I knew I needed a hobby, and something other than working out, cooking, or spending hours at the dog park when Hadley was a puppy (true story ). I wanted something with a challenge that I looked forward to working on each day. I had followed blogs for awhile and loved the idea of having a creative outlet of my own to share what inspired me. Little did I know this “hobby” would lead to meeting such amazing people and incredible opportunities along the way!

What do you use to curl your hair?

Just recently I discovered t3Micro curling irons and have become obsessed. I have never been one to invest in hair products, but this curling iron seriously has changed my mind. My hair typically wouldn’t hold a curl, but ever since using my t3Micro in a 1.25 barrel (along with the combination of these two products: 1 + 2) I wake up the next day with loose curls still in my hair. One of the best features is that the barrel sizes are interchangeable so you don’t have multiple wands layering around, only the different barrels. Also, I ALWAYS make sure to curl my hair away from my face! Trying to figure out the world of filming a tutorial (#2016goals), so stay tuned!

What is one beauty product you can’t live without?

Mario Badescu Drying Lotion — I just recently discovered it leading up to my wedding when the last minute stress started to kick in. It pretty much drys out any blemishes over night and works faster then any other creams I have previously tried. Just FYI, the way the solution separates your instincts make you want to shake the bottle, but DO NOT SHAKE! (they remind you in small print on the bottle). Just dip a q-tip down through both solutions into the pink sediment and dab on blemish. I tend to do this at night and keep it on until morning. If you are ever in NYC and looking for an amazing facial spot (or any skin care) I would highly recommend checking it out. I constantly ask for gift certificates here for any holiday!

I am loving the athleisure look, what sneakers would you recommend to achieve this look?

If you have been following along via instagram, you can tell I have been loving this look as well! I have been living in these black Nike sneaks and also just ordered this grey pair.

What is an easy recipe to bring to a dinner party/get together?

My mom is known as “dip queen” and has literally mastered all dip recipes. With that being said, my go-to crowd pleaser is her spinach dip. I must have given out this recipe well over 100 times by now. It is so easy and you can make it the night ahead…I actually prefer doing that so the flavors blend all together.

 Spinach Dip:

  • 1 package of chopped spinach, thawed and drain/squeeze out all water
  • 1 package of dried vegetable soup mix (Lipton or Knorr)
  • 1 cup plain Greek Yogurt
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 can sliced water chestnuts, sliver smaller

Mix all ingredients together and serve with you favorite chip or cracker (Fritos scoops are delish)

I love all your v-neck pocket tees, where can I find them?

I literally live in these tees! The have been on sale for $20 and come in a huge variety of colors. I have a few in the white (I hate when the armpits start to get discolored, tmi?!), grey, black and just tried the heather indigo. I like them slightly oversized, so I have been buying a small (they are more of a boyfriend fit).
