Properly Portion Your Pasta

In my house, however much pasta you make, you must eat! (This, I believe, is the unofficial slogan of Italy.) But because I never correctly estimate a proper portion of noodles (particularly long ones like spaghetti, fettuccine, etc.), and always air on the side of more, I end up eating a lot more than I…

A Mason Jar Fit For A Mojito

Mason jars are the perfect all-purpose summer mug. Great for everything from your morning iced coffee to your evening mixed drink, they look cool while keeping your libations cool, too. And that's why I'm totally crazy about this "Drinking Situation" mug from In God We Trust, which takes the typical mason jar up a few…

A Felt Kitten Brooch Is The Best Kind Of Brooch

I'm not usually into brooches, but this felt kitten brooch is a totally different story. First of all, it's so adorable I make involuntary squeaking noises whenever I look at it.

A Spritz That’s The Perfect Sip

Each season, we like to change our drink up. After a spring of sipping tequila and grapefruit, we were thrilled to be reminded of one of our all-time favorite drinks: The Spritz. Spritzes are a favorite in Italy, where lazy late morning espressos on the piazza easily give way to early afternoon Spritz drinking. Spritze…

Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner Is Coming Up Roses

I spend a lot of time making sure my skin is properly cared for. I'm a connoisseur of waters, serums, masques, cremes, and oils, so much so that my roommates are forced to tiptoe around our shared bathroom lest they disturb the delicate balance of my menagerie. For all the hours I spend treating my…

It’s Raining Rings, Hallelujah!

I don't use an umbrella to shield me from the rain (it's a Portland thing), but I am definitely not averse to using an umbrella to organize my rings. Especially a cute little silver umbrella like this. Adorable and practical? Be still, my soggy heart! [$12, Modcloth]…

Face Oil, Free Of Breakouts

I'm generally terrified of putting oil on my face because I have problematic sensitive skin that reacts badly to pretty much anything I put on it. If it's feeling dry, a smidge of moisturizer will turn it into a zitty, oily mess. Too oily, and astringent makes it a flaky, dry patchy disappointment. But not…

Plates By The Slice

As a New Yorker, I consider pizza one of the main staples of my diet. It helps that I can get a slice on almost every corner at any hour of the day. There's even a pizzeria in spitting distance from my front door. They know me by name. It would only make sense for…
