10 Best Holiday Gifts for Kids

  Every year, I lose a few brain cells trying to think of THE holiday gift. You know THE gift. This is the big ticket item. The one that gets revealed first. The one that may not even be wrapped because of its size. When it comes to the big holiday gift, I...

5 Tips on Buying Pre-Lit Christmas Trees

Nothing truly beats a real tree. However, with 2 kids and 2 dogs in the house, artificial trees will have to do for my household. In fact, they more than just make-do. They can be pretty amazing if you ask me. Having lights already pre-strung, being less of a fire...

Frozen Costumes

Shocker — my girls were dressed up as Elsa and Anna for Halloween last week. For every boy dressed up as Batman, there were probably 3 girls dressed up as Elsa. I tried my hardest to persuade my daughters to pick other characters but despite my best efforts,...

Pumpkin Ballerina Birthday Party

Birthday parties in fall are extra festive because of all the fun autumn themes. In the past, I’ve always had pumpkins and the color orange as the main decorative elements in the parties I throw for our fall baby, Lauren. This year, with her enrollment in dance,...

Loving a Second Child

Lauren, my youngest just turned 4 years old so you can imagine there will be an upcoming post about her birthday party (happening this weekend). In today’s post, I wanted to share a few photos from the past 3 birthday parties we’ve thrown to celebrate her...

Costumes Flashback

It’s Friday and I’m making it a Halloween Costume Flashback Day! As a kid, I’ve never dressed up in costume for Halloween. In my experiences growing up in New York City, Halloween was not typically a “fun” day. It was the “will I...

Halloween Mantel

Over the years, we’ve accumulated a number of Halloween decorative items for the indoors. That said, I tried not to go crazy this season with purchasing more items. Fortunately I limited my purchases because as you will see in this post, my mantel is pretty...

HAPPY

Happy. A very simple 5-letter word. But you and I both know…it’s complicated. I just celebrated another birthday and the word on my mind is “happy.” When I was in my early 20’s, I had a different vision of how “happy” would...

Our Fall Exterior

It’s hard to think of fall without thinking about mums and pumpkins. Is it any surprise that I love decorating the exterior of my home with them? Through the years, I’ve started a tradition on how I shop for and decorate my home’s exterior during the...

Beauteeful Finds – The Runaway

If you’re following Beauteeful Living’s Facebook page, you may recall I recently attended an Oyster festival at Asbury Park, NJ. As someone who loves seafood and visiting new places, it was a no-brainer to attend this event. At the Oysterfest, I expected...

Simple Fall Tablescape

Up until a few years ago, I used to think, “Ugh, why do people insist on decorating so early in the holiday season?” I did not need to walk into stores to know which holiday was approaching. All I had to do was drive down a block or two and inevitably...

Small changes still make an impact

Fall isn’t just around the corner. It’s right at our front steps, knocking fervently on our door. As much as this summer has been amazing, I’m not looking out the peephole reluctantly, while the fall season stands before me. I’m opening the...

Good Eats – Brewology

Recently, my husband’s cousin, Roger and his business partner opened Brewology, a gastropub located in Speonk, NY (Hamptons). Although interested in the restaurant industry for years, it was only less than a year ago that Roger took the idea seriously. The day came...

Color Your Mornings Beauteeful

Mornings are not easy. Seeing your favorite people and their faces (groggy as they may be) helps. Additionally, seeing your favorite things in your favorite colors certainly helps. Our mood is tied to so many elements. To me, color is undeniably a key element. One of...

Back to School Letter to Child

Initially when I was thinking about a post for “Back-to-School,” I was considering a post titled, “Beauteeful Finds – Back to School Edition.” I ultimately changed my mind because rather than the “shopping” aspect of Back to...

Our Wedding Anniversary

Today, I celebrate 9 years being married to an incredible guy. A guy I’ve been calling my best friend for the past 18 years. Yes, we’ve known each other for a very long time, considering I’m still young relatively young. I can go on about his amazing...
