New Beginnings: A Farewell to My Bachelorette Pad

As the saying goes, "all good things must come to an end"....for my bachelorette pad, it's almost the end of the road. In a few short weeks, Will and I will be upgrading to a new apartment with a second bedroom and bathroom (and extra closet!). We'll be staying in the same apartment complex I'm already in, but the new unit is much more accommodating for two young professionals and a rowdy pup. We had all intentions of moving to an entirely new complex, but once Will matched to his residency program, the current location became prime real estate. 

Now, let's take a quick walk down memory lane....I moved into my apartment just shy of 4 years ago. My mom and I were struggling through some very difficult times, so difficult, that I wasn't sure if I would even be attending law school. Through the grace of God, I was able to commit to Villanova Law and the rest is history. My word, if the walls could talk. This move will be bittersweet but I am looking forward to starting the next chapter of my life with my future husband.

Onto the good stuff -  furniture and decor! I didn't have much, fiscally speaking, to furnish and decorate over the last few years but thanks to Bob's Furniture and repurposing items from my old bedroom, it turned into the girliest place around. I made a few changes once I got my job, but for the most part, it's all stayed the same. I'm still contemplating whether to do a follow-up post with the kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. They aren't as complete so I figured you'd prefer the dining/living space better. Either way, I'll definitely be sharing our new apartment.  

Thanks for reading! Be sure to share and subscribe!!

In loving memory of my Grandpa, Michael Grasso. 
We lost him 4 years ago today, and my world has never been the same. 

Stay fab,

Easy Easter Inspiration with JORD


Jeans // Top // Scarf // Necklace // Mules // Watch

I'm loving all the Easter dresses popping up on social media lately, but let's get real... How many of us have a formal holiday anymore? My family's gatherings are full of food and fun, so I'm always looking for something polished yet easy to wear. My guess is a majority of you are in the same boat. Today I'm sharing some inspiration for a simple Easter outfit that can be re-created with things already in your closet. There is one thing I'd recommend you add though, and that's a unique timepiece by JORD Woodwatches!

This super cool "Cora" watch is crafted of Koa wood, which is full of rich, warm-tone hues. The rose gold face and Swarovski accents make for the perfect spring accessory. As a young professional, I appreciate that the aesthetic allows for a seamless transition between both work-appropriate and casual looks. Another plus is how lightweight the watch is. I have a Michele watch that I adore; however, the weight of the metal ultimately results in me taking it off midday. JORD watches are so comfortable that whether I'm feverishly typing away at work, or running errands on the weekend, I can move without restriction.

While a JORD watch is certainly an investment, it is well worth it in my opinion! To make a timepiece more accessible, JORD is offering one of you a $100 gift card towards a watch of your choice. All you have to do is submit an entry via the link here. It expires on Sunday, April 9th, so be sure to enter ASAP. Also, everyone who participates will receive a $25 gift card just for showing your interest. All codes will expire on June 9th.

What are your Easter plans? Thoughts on the wood watch trend? Let me know in the comments below! Thank you for reading. Please share and subscribe.

Huge thanks to JORD for partnering with me on today's post! While I did receive the Cora watch gratis, all opinions are my own. I sincerely appreciate your support of brands that keep my blog up and running.
