Why, hello! 

I'm Brittany, but most people call me Britt.


A little about me; Mom to a toddler, & a life & style blogger living in the heart of the Upper East Side in NYC.

I'm here to encourage, inspire, and share real moments.

We're all friends here!

I know we've all been cooped up inside these days so I wanted to share some fun and easy recipes for you to do by yourself or with loved ones! I partnered with Bed Bath & Beyond to encourage you to stay at home and spend some intentional time doing something fun! If that's baking, then you've come to the right place! Today I am sharing three recipes that we spent some time making and some photos throughout the process. Let's get baking, shall we?

First up, we are doing a homemade strawberry shortcake! This one was so fun to make and tasted amazing! Here we go! I got this recipe from Pinterest via Littlesweetbaker.com.



2 cups (250g) all-purpose flour
3 tbsp (38g) granulated sugar
1 tbsp (15g) baking pow...

If you live in NYC, you KNOW how to work with small spaces. I have had to learn to utilize and make the most of my space here, and Bed Bath & Beyond was here to help! I started in on my kitchen, focusing on the pantry and fridge. Below I am going to list the products I used as well as show how they work in my space!

First, I started on my pantry. Using OXO containers really helped utilize the narrow space and it was so crazy to see how much fit in there once it was organized in the containers.

3:InterDesign® Forma™ Cabinet Binz™ Metal Bin

NOW, on to the fridge! This one was super fun to do. I organized pr...

Hey friends! Today I am sharing what has become such a staple product in my home by Baby Jogger. Moms, dads, I know you're going to love this one!

Living in Hawaii, we lead a pretty active lifestyle. From hiking to beaches, this island that we call home gives us the perfect backdrop to stay outside and get active! One thing I knew for certain was that I needed a good active stroller to ensure that we can keep up with the activities we enjoy and James can take on the fun too! I partnered with Baby Jogger to share a bit about my experience with the City Mini GT2 and how we use it to stay moving! #ad

One of the reasons I love this brand is because the quality is incredible. It is sleek, compact, and easy to fold down. It is perfect for...

Today I'm sharing my favorite places to eat in my favorite city in the world! These restaurants are my repeat favorites and I know you'll love them too! If you go please tag me in your posts and photos so I can see how much you love them too! :)

1: Sarabeth's.

I LOVE their brunch. It's such an iconic but quaint little spot, and they have two locations. If you're going on a weekend for brunch I'd recommend the Upper East Side location rather than Central Park because the latter is always swamped on the weekends. My recommendation is the farm fresh eggs with a fresh croissant. Seriously, amazing. They also have an incredible eggs benedict with crab that my sister orders every single time... not even joking! The last time I went I order...

Well, you've found yourself in a less than positive situation. I get it. It's normal. Take a second to breathe and remember it happens to all of us. Our minds can be our worst enemy sometimes. Don't beat yourself up! Life happens and when it doesn't go according to plan, it's not exactly a good time. We begin to question our purpose and if what we are doing is worth it. I feel this way on occasion, and getting in a funk is the last thing I want to do. What I want to share here is how I approach those feelings and what works for me when trying to get out of a funk.

So... here we go.

One: Address the situation. Do you know what put you in that head space? Write it down. When I write down what brought me to that point, it's easier to av...
