Despite the high hopes of another vibrant Autumn in New England, the color explosions we have experienced from years past have taken a year off. Why, you ask? Thanks to the extension of summer weather during late September and early October, paired with an unusually dry September, just wasn’t a match made in heaven for…

Take the jump and chase your dreams

 You can’t be afraid to fail. So often we sit around and reflect upon what it is that we are doing with our lives and sometimes question a lot of our current strategies. We dream of days where we no longer work in cubicle farms but rather days living out our passions instead. There aren’t…

Decorate for fall for less

When it comes to putting your home together for the season, it’s always best to shop around for some of the best deals. After all, most of what we are putting out on display really only stays on display for an average of  2-3 months. Get those deals! I took a shopping trip recently to my local…

At Onyx, there is a whole lot more than just Connecticut moonshine

There’s nothing I could enjoy more than a good old fashioned speakeasy.

No season is complete without a visit to Kringle Candle

You were meant for more in life, and settling is not an option

When we think of the word settling, we often envision middle aged individuals getting married and buying a home with a white picket fence. Tell me I’m wrong. Settling is so much more, however.  It’s truly all about your place in life and your journey  along the way.  I mean, let’s think about this for…

Happy National Coffee day!

Okay, but isn’t everyday coffee day? I mean, who amongst us can survive without some sort of caffeine. Spoiler alert here, I’m not one of those people! I absolutely love coffee. Period. I mean, if you were to run into me on a day without it, you would think you ran into my evil twin brother…
