Hi, there! I’m Emily, the lady behind the blog. I’m a work-from-home mom of three little ones enjoying life in the North Shore of Chicago. When I’m not chasing after my kids or my hubby, you can catch me vintage and thrift shopping, reviewing a delivery glam box, re-decorating our 90+ year old home, trying a new recipe or planning our next trip.
Here’s a little bit more about me and my journey to blogging:
Day Job: I’m a registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN). Translation = I was a science nerd in college AND (most importantly) I LOVE FOOD. For more than eight years I worked in nutrition PR to help food companies connect with consumers and health professionals, but for the last three years I’ve focused on my three most important clients full-time, Teddy, Sloane and Sebastian. Being a RDN isn’t a job for me as much as part of my lifestyle, so you’ll find some of my recipe testing successes, new product reviews and food collaborations here on the blog.
How I Describe My Style: Casual-Chic, Minimal, European-Flare (this may be aspirational!).
Current Fashion Trend Obsession: High-waisted culotte fringe jeans. Pom pom details. Block heel shoes. Metallics (especially gold details).
Recent Thrifting Treasure: Pierre Balmain silk scarf. Picked it up at a vintage shop in Florence while on vacation with my hubby. I have a growing collection of neck scarfs (inherited and purchased) which have become my go-to accessory to quickly give some polish to a simple t-shirt with jeans, hide a bad hair day or accessorize a handbag. You can never have enough!
Style Inspiration: My mom. 🙂 She’s got the eye and she knows how to pull it all together, popped collar and all. My celeb style crushes include Olivia Palermo, Jessica Alba, Sarah Jessica Parker and Amal Clooney.

Thanks for stopping by!
