TOURING IN FLORENCE

So yes, we did do a lot of shopping, it was sale season after all. But we also took some time to see the sights of Florence. We took a lovely walk though the Boboli Gardens and Pitti Palace on our last day and it was spectacular. It was so warm I even had to […]

THE CLOSET DOCTOR!

This January I was not only determined to hit the gym (who wasn’t?), but also clean out our closets to organize all of our clothes and accessories. We have 4 closets in our apartment- 2 for me, 1 for Matt and 1 is a shared linen and coat closet. In actuality, we have plenty of room for […]

SECRET GARDEN AND SCENTS {CALDREA CO EVENT}

Last week we had the pleasure of attending the launch event of several new scents from Caldrea and Co- an eco-luxe brand that stands for quality ingredients, safe formulations and beautiful fragrance. The newest scents include Basil Blue Sage, Lavender Pink, Ginger Pomelo and Pear Blossom Agave– all of which were center stage as the […]

ITALY INSPIRATION

As I begin packing to leave on my special 30th birthday trip to Florence Italy tomorrow, I thought I needed some special outfit inspiration. Yes, I am one lucky “old lady” whose husband is taking her to Italy in honor of the big 3-0. Joking aside, I was so excited to turn thirty 2 weeks […]

GATHER & GOWN

A couple weeks ago I was asked to participate in a photo shoot that will be part of the January 2015 launch of a very cool new company called Gather & Gown. You know how getting asked to be a bridesmaid comes with both honor and slight “cringeworthyness” at the thought of buying yet another boring […]

FLORENCE BY NIGHT

Night time outfits were tricky in Florence because we walked to and from dinner and the shoes had to be comfortable. Of course the cobble stone streets don’t make it any easier, but I made it work with these Tabitha Simmons shoes. I swear they are comfortable, though I still had to hold my husband’s […]

CHACH COLLECTION FOR KIDS

Though you may not all have daughters, you can all appreciate clothes in mini sizes that are so adorable you might even purchase an item for future children and not tell anyone! Well the Chach Collection this season is insane, I think we bought everything we could get our hands on for Gemma. Good news […]

BEAMS

It is the second time in the past few months that I have come across a home with existing beams that can either make or break the entire design process for that room. The question is always to keep them or remove them? Paint them or re-finish them? Make them a focal point or try […]

ACCESS HOLLYWOOD- BEHIND THE SCENES!

We have some excited news here at B&B! Last night we had our big ‘primetime’ debut on Access Hollywood for a feature on how to transform your look from day-to-night this holiday season wearing looks from Burlington. We had an early 5am call-time to the Burlington’s flagship location in Union Square for hair, make-up and dress […]

WILD WALLPAPER

It is no secret that one of my favorite things on this planet are crazy, bold, and audacious wallpapers. I would put them in every room of my apartment, on every wall, if it wouldn’t make me look like a crazy person. But in moderation, I think wallpaper adds flair, pattern, and even texture to […]
