London Calling: The Jo Malone Archive & Blossom Girls Collection

  Over the past year or so I’ve gotten my paws on a quite a few Jo Malone colognes, and it very quickly skyrocketed to being one of my favorite fragrance brands – and by far my most-purchased!

Travel Tech: Gadgets For A European Vacation

  I’m probably getting WAY ahead of myself here, but Joseph and I are headed off to Paris (plus a couple days in London) for vacation in April and I’m already plotting what to bring with me. Nothing wrong with being prepared, right? Besides, I know spring break season is coming up, so maybe this will help with some packing list inspiration. I’m actually glad I started planning early because that gave me a chance to update a few travel necessities that I wasn’t  ...
