There's been a big shift towards self-care and wellness in recent years, and it feels like we're doing whatever it takes to ensure our mental and physical health are in check. For some that means eating clean, using safe beauty products, apps that track sleep and heart rate, and practicing things like mindfulness and meditation. Though I don't personally subscribe to an approach quite that extreme, I do believe in seeking a more balanced and healthy lifestyle by incorporating some similar practices in moderation. We're only a week into December and I'm sure I'm not alone in feeling some of...

My boyfriend and I are heading to Thailand over Thanksgiving, and although we're very excited, we are also sad to be missing out on one of the most anticipated meals of the year with our families. It's always a little strange to be away from home during the holidays, so I wanted to throw an impromptu Thanksgiving dinner together this week to combat some of our holiday FOMO. With the exception of a quick do it yourself rosemary centerpiece, I created a tablescape with items I already had around my apartment; a rustic burlap table runner layered over some cheesecloth, votives filled with romantic tea...
