Shopping List: 9 Items For The Home

Over the past 10 years, I've lived in 7 apartments in 3 cities and 2 countries, and let me tell you – all of this moving around really forces you to assess the items that you have in your home. Earlier this year I began a quest for a more minimalistic life and am now left with much fewer items in my home and in my closet than I started out with. I'm proud to say that everything that remains is something important or special to me in some way ....more

3 Places To Eat In Paris Off The Tourist Track

A few weeks back, I shared some photos from our recent weekend in Paris. Though we were only there for a long weekend, we packed in a lot (LOT). We saw all of the main touristy bits that everyone knows, and also explored and ate at some lesser known places that I now firmly call favorites.If you're heading over to gay Paris anytime soon, be sure to check out a few of these:...more

Sunday Objects | 7

When it comes to personal style, I waiver between ultra minimalist and pattern junky in wild and crazy ways. I admire and strive for the cool, understated qualities of classic minimalism and, like every other girl, could easily live my life in an under-decorated Parisian apartment with a simple bathroom, simple boy haircut, and simple sunglasses a la Breathless (sorry, I watched it last night). But the other side of me wants to freak out and cover everything in bright pinks and cobalt blues and African patterns and textiles ....more

Shopping List: Fall Wants

Between visa costs (we've gone through two visa processes this year, plus one citizenship) and the fact that we're slowly – oh so slowly – starting to save to buy our first home, it seems that all of my money lately is going towards very adult, need-based purchases rather than want-based items. (With the exception of travel, of course.)...more

Shopping List: Fall Wants

Between visa costs (we've gone through two visa processes this year, plus one citizenship) and the fact that we're slowly – oh so slowly – starting to save to buy our first home, it seems that all of my money lately is going towards very adult, need-based purchases rather than want-based items. (With the exception of travel, of course.) If I'm honest, I've barely bought anything this year in the shoe or clothing department. This is partly due to my desire to minimize the number of items in my wardrobe, but also because I've made the decision to be as smart with my money as possible until some of these external costs come down ....more

Why I'm Glad to Be (Almost) Out of My 20s

Aside from the excitement of embarking on your first job, few serious commitments, and endless enthusiasm and energy, what's so great about being in your early 20s?Nothing.I can safely say that now as a 28-year-old who feels far more comfortable than I ever did at 23. And that feeling is only growing each day....more

Dealing With Change

There are a million cliche things you could say about change. You could say that it's necessary in life. You could say that without change you have no growth, that it's hard but ultimately rewarding, etc.But when confronted with real change – whether it's small or something that will cause a big disruption in your everyday life – change can be extraordinarily difficult, and something that's a lot easier said than done....more
