While I was abroad in Scotland, I had gone to visit a friend who was studying in London. Out of all of the history and culture, platform 9 3/4 was first of three on my list to see. They provided me with a Gryffindor scarf, but I am loudly and proudly Slytherin.
As I was posing for this picture, I felt like second grade me seeing Harry Potter for the first time. It was an actual dream come true. If you are a Harry Potter fan and have the opportunity to go to London, make sure you head to Kings Cross Station and run directly into the wall at Platform 9 3/4.
This fall, Mike and I took a ride up to New Hampshire one Sunday. On a street corner in the middle of the mountains was a farm stand selling fresh seasonal fruits and vegetables. Do you see the size of those carrots? That potato? The corn sweet and crisp. These were, hands down, some of the best farmstead veggies I had ever gotten. I used most of the content of this box to make an Irish beef and Guinness stew.
Recipe to come.

Growing up in New Jersey with a family primarily from Brooklyn, going to the mountains wasn’t really a thing. We didn’t ski, we didn’t do any other winter sports so we never made the trip. It wasn’t until I met Mike that I went up to the mountains in New England for the first time. At first I was nervous and skeptical (ridiculous I know). I soon fell in love with the peaceful and airy surroundings and the views that go on for miles and miles. Now, I’m the one poking Mike begging to take a drive up there, especially in the fall. The Kancamangus Highway and Mohawk Trail two of our favorite spots to cruise on a sunny Sunday.
Does OOTD still work if its a throwback? Serving you some Wednesday Addams, Moira Rose realness! My bag is from Amazon! I was very into the Longchamp trend, but couldn’t quite afford it. When I found this gem I was so excited! Leather jacket and dress from New Look, earrings are from H&M, scarf from Old Navy, boots from Torrid, and sunglasses from a stand at the mall (lol). And for my lip? A classic red always does the trick and my personal favorite is Ruby Woo from Mac. I’ve been wearing this red since high school and I truly don’t think I’ll ever stop.
