I WANTED TO BE BEAUTIFUL

I love that getting older means more confidence and fearlessness to be who I’ve always been on the inside.

I saw this quote floating around online and it really captivated my attention. How true it is that we change with the seasons; over time our perspectives, desires, and goals evolve into who we are today.

ANTHROPOLOGIE :: Fall Colors

In the heart of Tampa is one of my favorite shopping centers, Hyde Park Village. This spot has been my go-to for many years. It has a coffee shop, all my favorite boutiques, a gym, a salon, restaurants and bakeries. I was lucky enough to work in this little village which I totally loved and felt like a dream! It is surrounded by palm trees, water fountains, and all the best little stores. If you’re ever in Tampa you need to come and check it out.

Every time I am in Hyde Park, I always wander into the Anthropologie. It’s definitely one of the biggest ones I’ve ever been to. Although Tampa feels nothing like Fall at the moment, I loved seeing all the Fall colors, clothes and decor. They really nailed the Fall feeling.

“In the Garden of Sonic Delights”

My husband and I ventured back to New York to Carmoor Center for Music and the Arts to support two of our incredibly talented Providence-based artists, Stephen Moore and Betsy Biggs. We were absolutely blown away by the beauty of not only Carmoor and it’s gorgeous gardens but by the talented artists and their work. You can read the article by The New York Times that came out just a couple days ago about it!

I can honestly tell you that spending the day at Carmoor to see “In the Garden of Sonic Delights” has got to be in my top experiences and places I’ve been. The mixture of atmosphere, nature, and sound art is pure magic.

I encourage you to check out this amazing show put on by many Rhode Island based artists. It is totally worth the drive to New York and the show will be on until November 2nd so you still have time! Let us know if you check it out.

August and Rudy- PART 1

Hey guys! This past weekend Olivia and I had the pleasure of working with our new friend and Providence local, Jo, of August and Rudy. Jo has an Etsy shop where she displays handpicked vintage clothes and accessories. We had the awesome opportunity to style and do a photo shoot with some of her amazing clothes. Here is a “behind the scenes” look into the photo shoot we had modeling her vintage collection and photography by our friend Lauren of Lauren Fletcher Photography .
