Missing The Lewiston Peach Festival Would Certainly Be The Pits…

Last week I went to Orange Cat Coffee Co. in Lewiston and met a new friend. Kate is a Western New York transplant (like myself)  and she asked me about fun things to do in the area.. I had so many great ideas for fall, but I realized that I shouldn’t discount the end of summer. TheRead More

How to find “The Best Place for Brunch” in your city

I love brunch! Working retail for so long made brunch hard to come by.

Falling in love with autumn fashion

Falling in love with autumn fashion

Sometimes summer in WNY seems like a shock to the system. We aren’t accustomed to 80 degree days, we are much more familiar with 8 inches of snow. I always enjoy the 3 months of sunshine, but I welcome the brisk fall air and pumpkin flavored everything. Fall just feels so comfortable. I love to bundle up inRead More
