Bachelorette partying in Ellicottville, NY

My prom date (aka one of my lifelong best buddies) is getting married! He shockingly picked a wonderful girl to marry, Beth 😉 . Beth and I have become good friends over the past few years and she was kind enough to include me in her bachelorette party festivities. The plan: Après ski, hot tub […]

A whirlwind weekend, I won’t soon forget

This past weekend was one of those weekends that flies by in a flash, but so many forever memories were made. My family is my everything and this weekend was full of my friends that are a large part of my family. The pictures paint a better picture of that sentiment than I can with […]

Charleston Trip #6

**Don’t forget to enter to win free groceries from Door to Door Organics!** One of my favorite human beings happens to live in Charleston, South Carolina. She’s been down there for about ten years and I’m pretty sure I have six (maybe more?) trips under my belt to see her smiling face. Last month’s trip […]

A nerdy 30, indeed

Facts: I turned 30 and moved into my parents basement within the same week. #CrushingIt. In all seriousness, I’m only slightly kidding. But turning 30 really wasn’t all that bad. It was actually the opposite.

Dean and my best friends pulled off an amazing 30th birthday party in my honor two weeks ago. It […]

A very happy 30th in NYC

This may be 3 weeks late but I’m a crappy blogger so sue me.

For my special friend Alissa’s 30th birthday, her closest friends from near and far joined her for an unforgettable weekend in The Big Apple. For all intensive purposes, I had never been to the city and was excited one of the […]

I survived my Kelley’s Island bachelorette party

When you take one part lifelong pals, a sprinkle of awesome friends made over the past 4 years, a few family members & a bunch of girls that love boats and put them on an island, I can guarantee you it’s a good time. At least it was for my last hoorah on Kelley’s Island!

Cinco de Mayo may have started a new tradition for my cousin, Brandi, & I: a Stella & Dot fiesta! Our gracious stylist, Jenna, came over and set up quite the shiny spread for our friends & family! […]

The second annual #BVbonfire

The internet is a powerful thing. Duh. It’s helped land me jobs, been a way to keep in touch with family & introduced me to what have become some wonderful friends.

Before I had this blog, I had met people like Alexa & Seanski through work. Then I became an official internet nerd with The […]

How we weekend in February

Since we didn’t celebrate Valentine’s Day on Thursday, Dean and I decided to cash in our Groupon to SB 81 Friday night. I had pretty high expectations since we loved Saucy Bistro’s food & patio happy hours (the previous restaurant at the location). All in all, I was disappointed. The martinis hit the spot and […]

A proper Sunday Funday

**You have until Thursday night to enter to win tickets to the Great Big Home and Garden Show**

After a relatively low-key Friday and Saturday night in, I was looking forward to Sunday Funday with some of my favorite ladies. Up first, my mom & I were attending the Something White Boutique Bridal Bizarre at […]
