NYC Kitchen Organization

There’s just something so therapeutic about organizing an area in your home that’s been stressing you out. Every time Horderly has come to our apartment, they’ve completely transformed our chaos into order. Rotating spice rack organizers will do that to ya 😉

If you guys remember, around this time last year the Horderly team came to our NYC apartment to completely re-organize our bedrooms. They transformed our closets, drawers, and bathrooms into perfectly organized systems. It was amazing (see that post here).

This month, they tackled the kitchen. Since our kitchen is connected to our living room (well.. it’s the same room), we spend a lot of time in there cooking and hanging out. Horderly did an incredible job of organizing everything from our snacks to our silverware, so I wanted to give you guys a little organization inspiration by showing you the details starting with a peek inside the kitchen cabinets..but first, some before pics:

The left cabinet above the Nespresso machine houses all of our coffee & tea necessities. This is the perfect little coffee corner for making our drinks in the mornings. Above this is all of the boys’ protein products and the top level are our lower vases.

The middle cabinet holds all of our plates and bowls that are conveniently separated by sleek acrylic risers. Above this is our glassware and the top section is for paper goods and party needs. The plastic containers are so amazing for easy pull down access and maintenance. They’re especially helpful because I’m so short! 🤷🏼‍♀️

The right cabinet is the pantry. Here is where the oils/vinegars/spices and sauces/spreads are kept. They implemented labeled spice jars and organized them onto lazy susans for easy access. I love how our snacks are organized into categories: savory snacks (oversized bags), crackers/snack bars/dried fruit, breakfast/sweets. On the top shelf lives the canned goods, pasta/quinoa, rice, and baking needs.

The drawer below the sink was a huge transformation – this will make cleaning my apartment so much easier! This is where you’ll find all the cleaning products and extra trash bags. The silverware drawer is night and day from what is used to look like. I love how all the utensils, cooking gadgets, baggies/ towels are so neatly organized here – especially because this is the drawer we use the most often. Below this is where we keep cutting board, mixing bowls, baking sheets, etc.

Horderly also helped up organize our (tiny) laundry area with more pull out bins full of laundry needs.

And last but not least – the dreaded front closet that was an absolute sh*tshow at all times before they came to save the day. They implemented an over the door shoe rack for hats/gloves/scarves – which I thought was such a smart idea! All of our coats are separated with rod dividers and all hung on the same black felt hangers. Our suitcases are stored in this closet – which each have our small carry-on bags stored inside. Up above is where we keep the air mattress & extra bedding for guests. The first pics are the before shots & then the final shot:

We can’t thank Horderly enough for helping us with this Kitchen transformation. We recommend their organization team to all of our friends in the city and can’t say enough good things about them! If you are interested in having them come into your home to help organization the entire thing or just a specific area, you can get in touch with their team here & follow along on Instagram to see more before/after transformations.

Rome & Portugal ’19 Trip Recap

WOW. Life!!!

I haven’t written on here in a LONG time and I’ve missed it, things have been BUSY! I went straight from a two week trip in Europe, to getting home to New York and getting ENGAGED. It’s been one of the busiest and happiest months of my entire life. It’s been so nice to just soak in all the happiness of the last two weeks up with Conner and our family and friends. I’m definitely going to be writing more about all of that (engagement and wedding planning tings!), but tonight I’m rewinding back to Portugal and Rome so I can share my outfits and travel details with you guys 🙂 If you missed these trips on Instagram, you can go watch both of my most recent story highlights titled Rome / Libson at the top of my profile here.

I couldn’t have asked for a better experience in both Lisbon and Rome. I traveled with three of my best friends (John, Alicia, and Justin – and Travis met us for a few days!) and as you know, who you travel with makes all the difference! I visited Porto, Portugal last year with John, but this year we visited Lisbon – which was one of the most colorful places I’ve ever seen. We stayed at the cutest little hotel – The Vintage Lisbon – and pretty much just ate and drank our way around the city.

A few, must-do’s while in Lisbon:

Memmo Alfama Rooftop drinks with gorgeous view & pool

Time Out Market Lisbon

Drinks on patio at Memmo Príncipe Real

Bonjardim – great dinner spot

Day trip to Sintra – we did Pena Palace and loved it so much

LX Factory – cute little cobblestone area to browse and eat in

Rome was absolutely everything I thought it would be. We had wine and pasta for breakfast, lunch, and dinner – gelato and Aperol spritz daily….and my stomach has never been happier. I lived on Cacio de Pepe.. which if you’ve never had, PLEASE go to your nearest Italian restaurant and order it immediately. Exploring Rome felt like stepping back in time, every corner of the city was a perfect photo moment. The architecture, history, and the people made it a city I’ll never forget. We found the perfect little centrally-located hotel with the nicest staff: InTown Luxury Roma. Alicia and I LOVED every minute of shooting in Rome. Sharing what we captured below along with my suggestions…

A few must-do’s while in Rome:

IL Melarancio was our favorite spot to eat, we came back here like 5+ times lol. But honestly, every single random place we stopped at for meals on the street around the Spanish Steps area were great.

Trevi Fountain, Pantheon, Colosseum were my favorites. Sad we didn’t make it to The Vatican – next time~!

Villa Borgehese – explore the beautiful gardens

Giolitti – best Gelato spot

L’Antica Enoteca – cute outdoor seating & loved the vibe

Club Derrière – a chic speakeasy we loved!

Turks & Caicos Trip & Outfit Recap

Where We Stayed:

You guys. THIS RESORT! Every inch of the The Shore Club Turks & Caicos was pristine. Everything from the design and layout of the resort to the landscaping and tropical plants scattered throughout the property was absolutely gorgeous. The staff was full of kind hearted people who were constantly checking in to make sure everything was perfect. The rooms were huge and beautiful – and don’t even get me started on those private villas I featured in my story! They each have their own private pool and six bedrooms – sounds like the perfect destination wedding spot to me if you’re looking for somewhere tropical! One of our favorite things was the complimentary breakfast buffet every morning – SO GOOD. If you’re a breakfast person, you know how key this is. Sui Ren – the restaurant on property – had some of the best sushi I’ve ever had, we had two fun dinners here during our stay.

I had so many of you asking about where we were staying that I worked on getting a special code for you to use if you’re interested in booking a trip here! You can use OLIVIARINKTSC for 15% off from if you book between now and February 14th! (*Black out dates include November 26-30, December 20-January 4).

Sorry for the short post tonight, but I wanted to get this post up for all of your asking for outfit details!

Can’t wait to show you where we’re going next, follow along on Instagram this week 🙂
