My Trusty Tory Burch Crossbody Bag

Whether I’m running errands or spending a day with friends, I try my best to only carry the bare minimum in my purse. There’s just something about being hands-free and not suffering the weight on my shoulders (literally) with a large tote that only enables me to lug around more items than I actually need. My go-to summer cross-body bag by Tory Burch…

Simple Summer Frappés

Having so many friends of Greek decent, I feel like it’s been eons since I was first introduced to “frappés.” Frappés are a simple yet delicious drink, made up of mainly ice, milk, and coffee. I love it in the summertime for its convenience (preparation is a snap) and because it seems to cool me down almost immediately. Here’s my…

Breakfast at Duc de Lorraine

I am a huge fan of breakfast. Go on, I dare you to serve me pancakes at any time of the day. I promise I’ll become your new best friend. I am always so indecisive when I sit down at a restaurant for Sunday brunch. My taste buds take over all of my other senses, and I crave every single item on the menu….

Wedding Invitations

When I handed my girlfriend our wedding invitation, she smiled and stated: “Lisa… this is it. I feel like it’s so much more official when the invitations are finally distributed.” Joe and I had so much fun putting together our invitations and RSVP cards. It was a bit of a struggle because we were deciding on whether we would pull…

LBD – The Little Black Dress

I understand that a little black dress is key to have in your wardrobe but until recently, all of mine have been too formal to wear on a day-to-day basis (even at the office). I found this t-shirt dress at Zara and instantly fell in love with its not-too-snug fit and its round collar. Not only will it be a staple in my summer wardrobe…

Summer Face Ritual

If you take a look at my Five-Minute Makeup, you’ll notice that my everyday face ritual isn’t all that complicated. I strive to make my best features shine and to hide any blemishes with good-quality products (yes, that includes taking years to find the best cream for my face, which happens to be Dr. Hauschka’s Rose Day Cream Light). In the summertime, my…

The Bier Markt Experience

I’ve only ever heard good things about Bier Markt, so when I was given the opportunity to try it during my recent stay in Toronto, I was pretty excited. (Okay, maybe more than excited: I might have dreamed about what I’d be eating and grabbing off of their menu). What had me even more intrigued was that I was invited for a…

Expert Q&A: Duc de Lorraine

I think we may all know by now that I have an extreme sweet-tooth. So, I’d probably be stating the obvious when I say that the cake is one of the wedding elements I’m most excited about. What makes it even more exciting is that it’s going to be custom-made by the geniuses at my favorite French bakery, Duc de Lorraine. We’ve planned for tiers…

Wedding Words

With our wedding only 3 months away, everyone has been checking up on me, making sure that I’ve kept my sanity and that the DIY crafts haven’t taken over our entire living space. Joe always mentions how I’ve probably been dreaming about this day since I was a little girl. He’s totally right but a lot of the attention has been…

5-Minute Makeup

When it comes to makeup, I’m all about a natural, glowing look. I love cosmetics as much as the next girly-girl, but just because I have a more minimal approach to my application, doesn’t mean I skip out on shopping frenzies at Sephora. Time is extremely valuable, and with my job and the errands I constantly have to run, I still want to…
