Kennebunkport, Maine: A Look Into My First B&B Stay Ever!

Ah, Maine. Filled with its lobster rolls, trees, beautiful coastal beaches and breathtaking views, it has definitely found a place in my heart!  If you know me, then you know I am always on the hunt for some weekend travels out of NYC, and with a world so beautiful (and a country that I’ve come to learn offers so much, too), I just knew that this was the year I was finally going to make the trip up.

After a long 6.5-hour drive (note: never leave NYC on a Friday!  Thursdays are better!), we just couldn’t wait to get to our new home for the weekend and relax a little bit before grabbing our camera and experiencing all that Kennebunkport had to offer! Continue Reading

Stay Calm and Invest On

Ah, Sandro Paris. A brand that has been catching my eye with some of its pieces recently.  Now, to be honest, I had sticker shock when I first viewed their collection; but, in my recent learnings, sometimes you pay for those extra little details or that fabric that just feels, well, of a better quality. I’ve also had my fair share of clothing that starts to deteriorate after a second or third wash and I want a long-term relationship with my clothing these days. So, it was no surprise that when purchasing this Sandro dress (my first!), I had my mother at the back of my mind saying, “Loren, invest in your clothing.” Whether it meant this dress or not, I decided to give it a shot.  Continue reading for more behind this simple outfit and a Savannah, GA must-eat!
