  • What to wear hiking

    This weekend, I’m actually up in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, hiking the Southern Presidential range on my first overnight backpacking trip. It’s not a standard backpacking trip – I’m staying in one of the AMC’s huts where they feed us dinner and breakfast – so I don’t need to pack in a sleeping […]

  • DIY Good Vibes Pillow

    As you may remember from my living room inspo post, I’ve had my eye on this Good Vibes pillow for YEARS. While it’s cute – $38 seemed like a lot for a pillow – so I decided I was going to DIY it instead. Embarrassingly, I’ve had the undyed letters for over a year, with […]

  • Deciding to Travel Alone

    If we’re friends on Facebook you’ve seen that I’m planning a trip and looking for recommendations on an upcoming vacation to Reykjavik and Copenhagen.

  • Behind my blog’s name

    One of the blog’s biggest fans – my sister – recently asked me to write a post about how my blog got it’s name – and I’m not one to disappoint one the blog’s most long-standing readers. If you remember back to the beginning, it was 2010 and my blog was hosted on sarahmitus.com. I […]

  • A Year Back in Boston

    When I was a kid, I always felt like time went by so fast. You had pre-planned vacation times, semesters, and new teachers and milestones to hit. You thought middle school was a quick three years, only to find high school and then college go by even more quickly. But as an adult, with fewer […]

  • Pressure Cooking is the new Slow Cooking

    Okay this might be a controversial subject here, but I’m going to go for it: pressure cooking is the new slow cooking. You may think you love your slow cooker, but it’s only because you haven’t experienced pressure cooking yet. To be honest: his past winter in cold, snowy Boston, I didn’t use my crock […]
