Ici, le home sweet home a cédé la place au home swing home : une maison qui balance et vit au rythme de ces six âmes vives. Un lieu de vie changeant qui s’est transformé à mesure que les enfants ont grandi : “Nous vivons ici depuis huit ans. Quand les enfants étaient petits, je ne voyais pas l’intérêt de trop investir financièrement dans la décoration, mais quand ils ont été un peu plus grands et moins “destructeurs”, j’ai senti que c’était le bon moment. J’avais envie d’une maison pleine de personnalité, à l’image de notre famille. Au fur et à mesure qu’un foyer s’agrandit, les enfants évoluent, s’affirment, leurs caractères s’épanouissent et deviennent plus prononcés. Notre maison a évolué avec nous”, explique Hannah. Mais bien qu’elle rêve de changement et de délaisser le minimalisme au profit de motifs et de teintes vibrantes leur ressemblant davantage, elle a

Comfort is key, especially as it is extremely chilly outside! We rounded up a few winter plus size loungewear finds that we’re lovin’ lately, that will hopefully inspire a little peace and extreme comfort! We want all the comfy cozy pieces to live in while snuggling up with our significant other or furry friend on the couch and sippin’ on a hot toddy!

Want to feel comfy and cozy, but still cute?

Don’t get us wrong, there’s nothing wrong with your tried and true lazy day outfits, but sometimes you want to add a little va-va-voom into your everyday. Especially now, when each day can seem the same! Change it up and celebrate yourself!

We love the outdoor-focus of our Charleston community, including sunny, invigorating winter days that always leave me feeling refreshed. We try to spend as much time as possible outside enjoying some of our favorite activities, like walking around the neighborhood, playing at the park, biking along the marsh, and going to the beach. Thankfully, Charleston winters are fairly mild (except the recent unusual freeze). Even so, we still get chilly mornings and evenings that call for coats, sweaters, sneakers or boots, a beanie, and more to ensure full enjoyment during our time outdoors. Below is a roundup of pieces perfect for any winter adventure as you head outside this season!

These stylish suede and shearling hiker boots will keep feet warm and dry this winter.

This cozy fleece jacket with reflective details is the perfect layer to wear outdoors evening walks or hiking trips.

3 Makeup Products I’m Using Now and in 2023

1. La Mer The Perfecting Primer

A primer that hydrates, plumps, and blurs imperfections for a smooth, soft-focus effect. Creates a smooth canvas for applying foundation. I love using this before applying my foundation.

It’s on the pricey side, but it lasts for months. I purchased mine in August and still have enough product for several months.

2. Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation

This is a medium-coverage foundation that works great

Although the majority of pop-culture depiction of the holidays leaves a warm, fuzzy, and connected familial feeling, it is important to acknowledge and validate that the holidays can be hard for many of us; the overwhelmed, the anxious, the lonely, the othered, the depressed, and even those with the most loving of families. Don’t worry, there are therapeutic tools that can help so you don’t face this alone. 

The good part of that sometimes difficult truth is that if you are reading this now, it means you already survived the start of the holiday slide that is Thanksgiving (or Thanks-taking as my Micmac family cheekily calls it).

Congratulations to you, and quite frankly to me too; we did it!

No matter what iteration of an experience you had at Thanksgiving, you are now on the other side. But with no shortage of Christmas carols blaring at every
