Post Partum Update

Holiday Gifts for Her 2017

This is perhaps my most favorite of all gift guides to create, perhaps for obvious reasons. I basically get to scour the web searching for the things I love and own or covet insatiously (is that a word?). You’ll find a lot of grey, a lot of cozy cashmere, and…

Beauty Gift Ideas 2017

I cannot believe the holidays are already around the corner! It’s almost Thanksgiving, and for some people, that is good enough reason to start unpacking the holiday decor. Guilty as charged! I haven’t had much opportunity to film anything since Harper was born, but I do have ample hours to…

Baby Braly Gender Reveal

We are so beyond over the moon to announce that baby Braly, coming November 2017, is a GIRL! HB definitely called it. For some reason I, along with most of our families, thought we were having a boy! Only a rare few believed it would be a girl! We are…

Meet Leeloo

We are so overjoyed and ecstatic to bring a sister for Gidget into the Braly fold.  We searched shelters for nearly a year to find Gidget the perfect playmate and companion, with no success.  But when we stumbled upon this little girl, we immediately scooped her up and she hasn’t…

My Umstead Spa Experience

About a week ago I had the most amazing spa experience of my life.  I haven’t been one much for facials or spa treatments in the past, mostly because I couldn’t bear to spend that much money on myself.  But when I was treated to a very generous gift card…

Le Sport Chic

my how things have changed I’m having a blast with these Adidas Tubular sneaks – they’re the right mix of neutral beige and sporty effortlessness. I’m still experimenting with them on what goes and what doesn’t – but I quite liked this look on a rare, brisk Tuesday afternoon. Since…
