My Living Room Essentials

{West Elm & Thoughts From Alice} Ever since I moved to Hoboken, I haven't shared any pictures of my current apartment. It's bit of a unique living situation in that it's semi railroad-style and semi not. When you first walk into our apartment, you're in my room. Beyond my room is a small bar area and next is the kitchen. Once there, you have two options: a staircase that leads downstairs to my roommates' bedroom and own bathroom. The alternative is to continue through the kitchen to a bathroom and a room...

The Best No-Carve Pumpkin Inspiration

Have you ever noticed 'round this time of year every single blogger, social media curator, and their mother wants to bombard your timeline with "one-of-a-kind," DIY pumpkin ideas? Before you click off this page, I promise you, I'm writing this blog post because PureWow's curation of pumpkin inspiration hits the nail right on the head. It deserves to be shared. We've all seen the glitter-dipped pumpkin. And the colorful thumbtack pumpkin. But thanks to PureWow, there is at least one unique assortment of pumpkin decorating ideas,...

Do It Yourself Peach Pie Crumble

You guys. I did a thing. I made my very first pie. My mother would be proud. (Look ma, look what I made!) But then she'd most likely take a bite and immediately question why I didn't make the crust from scratch? To which I would feebly but defiantly respond, "Ain't nobody got time for that." The next time I visit my parents, I'll be sure to recreate the same recipe, this time attempting the crust. But I digress. So I used some of my vacation days over the past...

Hoboken, NJ: A 6-Month Review

August marked my sixth month since making the permanent move to Hoboken. Seeing as I've wanted to find an apartment in Hoboken since I first moved to New Jersey back in 2013, I think the six-month anniversary is the perfect time to evaluate: Has the move lived up to the hype? At this point in my life, I can't imagine living anywhere else. My bedroom is a great size, boasts a fireplace and a gorgeous chandelier. The communal kitchen is large and inviting for guests and...

What You Should Eat at Doughnut Plant

Previously, I've mentioned my obsession for the famous donut shop Dough while discussing five of the places in New York City that I've managed to make my personal pockets. While I still identify as an integral part of Dough's cult-like following, I'm not ashamed to admit that since the store on W. 19th St. closed for renovations, I have broadened my donut horizons. Cue Doughnut Plant, which truthfully, is probably just as famous and beloved as Dough. It's expensive, sure, but these are some quality donuts, people. Since...

DIY: Starbucks Chai Tea Imitation Latte

No matter which food establishment I am in -- be it a Starbucks, Panera, or Dunkin Donuts -- I am always on the lookout for one thing: a chai tea latte. (Check out my DIY Chocolate Hazelnut Chai Latte HERE.) It can be iced, it can be hot, I don't care either way. But lately, I decided I was going to take it upon myself to experiment with how to craft my own. Here's what I've come up with: 1 cup of water 2 chai tea bags...

I CANCELLED MY IPSY SUBSCRIPTION

Guys, I wasn't going to admit this on social media or for that matter, anywhere on the Internet, but I did it. I cancelled my subscription to Ipsy. Ahhh, don't hate me! Don't stick me in a pillory in the town square while furious townsfolk throw tomatoes and publicly ridicule me. I've literally spent the past year and a half talking up this makeup subscription to every human being I've come across. (Seriously, Ipsy, where's my commission check? Do you know how many subscribers my highly-coveted recommendation has...
