An Afternoon at Savona's Trattoria

A few weeks ago, Nolan and I made a pit stop to the Rondout Waterfront while in Kingston for the afternoon and enjoyed a relaxing lunch at Savona's Trattoria.We've been to Savona's a hand full of times in the past year and it's quickly becoming one of our favorite places to eat.

Memories of 2013

Happy New Year's Eve!

Apologies for being M.I.A....the past few weeks have been loaded with days of gift buying, wrapping, cleaning and baking! With it being New Year's Eve, I figured it's the right time for a recap of some of my favorite memories in 2013!

Every Valentine's Day Nolan has a beautiful bouquet delivered to me. Even though it may seem like a cheesy routine, each and every one is different and lands a huge smile on my face! This Lily was exceptionally beautiful and HUGE!

Nolan and I strayed away from the Hudson Valley yesterday afternoon and wandered into Torrington Connecticut where we enjoyed a relaxing lunch at a restaurant called Backstage- Eat. Drink. Live.  This place is gigantic, with tall booths and stools every where. They have a selection of 40 beers on tap and a whopping 80 different kinds of bottled beers! Any beer wo/man's DREAM!

Simmering Wood Stove Potpourri

Don't you just love curling up under some cozy blankets this time of year? Despite my dislike for the cold weather, one thing I truly enjoy is being able to concoct different wood stove potpourri recipes that simmer all day long, making the house that extra bit cozy and enjoyable!

Five Drug Store Beauty Buys

I must admit, I am not one who can rationalize spending $50 on an itty bitty bottle of foundation or face cream, needless to say, I know my way around the drug store beauty aisle. So here are my five favorite drug store beauty buys!

1. Maybelline's Fit me Shine-Free Foundation. It is extremely affordable and really does reduce any shine on your face. I've been using this foundation for the past 4 months. To my fellow ladies with a slightly oily face, this works wonders and leaves your  face even and shine free! The best part is that you don't have to get all messy! Just swipe on the places you want to cover, grab your foundation brush and blend, baby blend!
