Hi, my name is Meghan and tequila is my frenemy but I’ll never turn down a margarita.  Seriously, one of Erick and my favorite spots in Jersey City is Taqueria.  They have the best margaritas and cactus tacos.  Nothing  Better.  So when I was thinking about a refreshing cocktail for this hot and humid weekend […]

Erick and I love candles so we always have one or two going throughout the apartment [current fave]. But with them burning all the time, we run through them pretty quickly.  These DIY reed diffusers allow us to enjoy the fragrance without needing to pick up a new candle every other week (or remembering to blow […]

Easy Homemade Guacamole

Quick and easy homemade guacamole recipe coming your way!  Confession: I only recently started enjoying guacamole, or avocados for that matter.  I’ve really been trying to love them but its been an acquired taste for me.  Guacamole was something I was able to get behind because there’s typically chips involved.  Still trying to figure out […]

Guys, it’s been hot.  You know, that stereotypical humid, sticky, can’t step outside with out sweating, summer in New Jersey hot.  You would think since I’ve lived here my whole life I would be prepared, but I never am.  It’s as if every year, as I’m flipping the calendar from June to July, beads of […]

A few years ago, Erick and I gifted each other a camera to photograph our life; sunrises, hikes, beach walks.  This spurred into my love of taking photos and styling projects for this blog.  We both enjoy being behind the camera, but having photos taken of us?  Not so much.  When we got engaged I […]

When I got engaged in late January my blog was already in full swing.  I had carved out a few different categories while I was finding my niche; recipes, DIYs and seasonal activities.  I really wasn’t sure how much of my engagement, or personal life for that matter, I wanted to share.  Now a few […]

It’s that time of year when the days are getting longer, air is getting warmer and the fruity cocktails are flowing.  And I’m here to add another drink to your rotation that is so delish it may last past the summer months.  With the warmer weather I tend to go for drinks that are not […]

Grapefruit Sugar Scrub

Truth: Sometimes I pick up products and materials for projects and never make them.  In this case it was an essential oil.  A while ago I went out in search of a citrusy essential oil with the game plan to recreate cooling towels the Bikram yoga studio I was attending at the time handed out […]

Mother's Day Gift Guide_Twine And Braids

As I’ve gotten older and my likes and interests have evolved,  choosing gifts for my mom has become easier.  I tend to choose products and visit shops that I would enjoy myself and the gifts are always a hit.  Now my only explanation for this phenomenon is that I’m turning into my mother, which isn’t […]
