Kate Spade Got it Right


If you think of Kate Spade New York as being this sophisticated and feminine person, Kate Spade Saturday is her bubbly and bright younger sister. When the line first opened I was a bit hesitant. However, their new Spring line dropped and not only does it have the same great build and quality of KSNY - it also is totally fun! If you follow them on social media you'll constantly see motivation to make every day your Saturday. Now this is something I can abide by.

Weekend Update


The way that this weekend snuck up on me is absolutely absurd. I feel like I just came back from the ski trip and already I'm on that Friday grind. This just goes to show how I definitely need to incorporate some relaxation into these next two days.

I plan on using the weekend to catch up on my DVR queue and sleep. Add in some vino, the latest issue of Vogue, a nice bath, and a Diptique candle purchase from Faith + Ashlyn's Nordstom event tomorrow and I'm set.

Coconut + Chocolate Granola


I'm always trying to find new ways to introduce new recipes into my seemingly hectic life. Let's be real: majority of me wants to run down the block and grab an acai bowl every morning but my budget can't support that (damn that budget). One day I spotted a granola recipe online and thought how easy it seemed to combine a mish-mosh of random ingredients into something delicious. I was right.

Weekly Favorites: Week of 2.22.15.


Usually my Weekly Favorites fall on Mondays but this week has been a hectic one so far! Hope you all enjoyed your weekend. Mine was spent in a cabin at Deep Creek Lake, MD with 11 of my friends. The cabin itself was awesome (hot tub included) and we got about 6-12 inches while we were there - perfect weather for snowboarding! We got to spend the day on the slopes on Saturday and capped it off with Irish coffee.

Weekend Update

Happy friday you guys! This week was a quick one - with a snow day on Tuesday to break things up. I'm so excited for this weekend since my friends and I are trekking out to Wisp for a winter getaway. We're renting out a cabin and heading to the mountain tomorrow for some skiing and snowboarding. I'm usually one to go about three-four times a year, so I've been definitely missing it. It'll be a bitter one weather-wise but I'm needing a getaway from the city.

Bye Diet Coke, Hello Juice!

Ladies and gentlemen it's Lent season. For some of you this means 40 days of no social media; maybe no beer; or even no sweets. Every year I try to think of something new (and feasible) to give up for the month-plus timeframe. This year I chose to give up one of my favorite indulgences: soda. Diet coke, to be exact. Although I love the bubbly taste and midday refreshment, I know there is a litany of reasons why you should keep them out of your diet.

Pop of Winter Red

Last night brought us our first real snow in the DMV area so it was time to bring out all of the winter gear. I loved being able to stomp around in the powder and layer up!

The Best Presidents Day Sales


Holiday weekends always bring great sales - and for some people, a three day weekend. I've rounded up some of the steepest discounts I've found online and wanted to share them with ya'll. Although stores are already previewing their Spring lines, they are offering HUGE discounts on their winter gear. And for those like me on the East Coast you know how important an over-sized sweater and fuzzy hat is at this moment:

Weekly Favorites: Week Of 2.15.15.

Hope you all had a fabulous weekend filled with love! As you can see, I spent a good portion of my free time cleaning up the design of the site. Although the blog has only been on the site for a little over a month now I felt like it was in this place of complacency. I wanted to create a more minimal design that was easier to transfer into a mobile design and that seemed more coherent with my overall vision. Welcome to the new "With Love, From Sarah".

Weekend Update

Happy Friday the 13th! Hopefully the luck has been on your side today. We thankfully have a sunny (but cold) day here in DC. I have a lunchtime mani, post-work errands, and nighttime ladies night with wine in the schedule.

My Hair Care Lineup

One of the questions I get asked the most is involving hair products. I'll admit, I have constantly been trying new products over the past few years to find the perfect combination for my hair. I feel like I went through a phase where I spent tons of money and time testing out new tricks to get volume into my thin hair. Thankfully, after 25 years, I think I've finally landed on what works the best for me.

Top Five Favorites: Week of 2.8.15.


Happy Tuesday! After having a gorgeous weather day on Sunday, it looks like there's some gloomy days in the forecast. Thankfully my lovely friend Lydia had her birthday yesterday and we got to nom on these yummy donuts from DD - which brightens up any day.

Weekend Update

Happy Friday, all! I'm thankful to have taken the day off since my parents are coming into town. The morning has been filled with some photo shooting, cleaning, and catching up on Top Chef. We're looking to do a bunch of movin' and shakin' around the city over the next two days. First up is a tour of the Washington Monument + some museum hopping. Tomorrow we'll be seeing the Capitol and walking around the mall.

I'm excited for them to see the apartment (it's been over a year and I've re-decorated immensely since) and to show them my favorite things about the city.

What are you looking forward to this weekend? Let me know in the comments below!

Top Five Favorites: Week of 2.1.15.


It's hard to believe that this weekend was the last one in January. I feel like Christmas was just yesterday and already we're rolling into February. Instead of writing out my highlights and low-lights - which, frankly, can be truly boring to read - I decided to make a little vlog of the weekend's activities. From Korean BBQ tacos, to lots of blog prep, and drinking things out of ketchup bottles (yes, it is a thing) I would say this weekend was one for the books:

Game Day Attire


Today is all about the commercials, puppies, Katy Perry, and bar food - oh, and a little thing called football. I'm planning on making some buffalo chicken dip for a party at my friends house. The classic combination always seems to win over stomachs. I've also found that making it in the crockpot is the easiest way to cook it. It's a perfect way of keeping it warm throughout the game and allows you to make a large batch for bigger groups.
