Monkey Business

Every so often, Lilly comes out with a print or a piece that I just have to have. It’s been a slow summer. Only a few pieces have caught my eye, and while the brand is trying to be more trendy and keep up with “the times,” I prefer a more classic look. However, I…

Castle Hill

For the past couple of weeks, I feel as though I haven’t left my desk. I’ve been studying an insane amount, and I can’t wait until I’m done. All the time trapped inside makes the few times I can actually leave my house and go somewhere all the more fun. Over the summers, I’ve spent…

This beautiful red bridge has been on my list of spots to visit since September. I initially intended to visit in the fall, until I realized that it was a full two hours west in New Milford, Connecticut. Fortunately, this past week I got the chance to visit, along with a couple of other spots.…
