Home office reveal: Mixing minimalist and boho eclectic decor

Hello beautiful friends! I am so excited to share this office reveal because I feel like it’s been a long time coming. Back in February I decided it was time for a makeover because I wasn’t getting good utilization out of the space. Even though I had a desk I found myself working off of the kitchen table because it was more practical (and comfortable)…

My thoughts on student debt and the status quo

Let me precursor this post by stating that I went to a private university and graduated with a bachelors degree in business so I am by no means against higher education. In fact I think that it is very important for countries to invest in their future world leaders because we will one day be governed by today’s youth. HOWEVER There is an undeniable looming…

Chic Wedding Venues in New York that You’ll Love

Hi friends! As many of you know I am recently engaged and the wedding planning has officially begun! We’re currently looking for reception sites that aren’t your run-of-the-mill venues (boring) and we’ve reached out to several vendors to try and narrow down our list. I’m very particular with the aesthetic, it has to be perfectly on brand. You know- bright botanical garden setting with vibrant…

First time in Switzerland: 5 day itinerary and travel tips

For Christmas I surprised Pasquale with a trip to Switzerland since we love to ski and have made it a tradition to go away every February.

My Boho Minimalist Bedroom Reveal

Sooo I crossed off 2 major items on my list and it feels like a boulder has been lifted off of my shoulders. Office makeover complete✔️and wedding venue locked down✔️ (I am so over the moon to reveal the details on this >> It’s like the boho gods curated THE most perfect location I didn’t even know existed🧚🏼‍♀️) and what perfect timing too, I was about to throw in the towel out of frustration. It seems like every venue is an over-priced catering hall with the same factory style wedding. Can’t wait to share the planning with you guys!

OH and how fun is my office chair?! I wasn’t sure about it at first but I’m obsessssed. I’ll be sharing all of the details on my blog, I didn’t get a chance to post last night but it should be up by Monday🌛🌜
  • It’s OFFICE REVEAL day! I’m so happy I could cry. Here’s one of my favorite parts of the room, my zen little nook🌱
▫️
When designing this space it was important for me to have a creative corner where I can think/read/write sans distraction. I’ve been finding it hard lately to be alone in my own thoughts because of all the stimulation and instant gratification we have right at our fingertips. Gone are the days we’re forced to stare at a wall when we’re bored🤣
▫️
My goal is to implement more time to think completely unplugged and unfiltered with just a notebook and a pen - and maybe some hot lemon water. Just like the gym, client meetings and other non-negotiables, I’m challenging myself to block out 1 hour once a week to just think. 🧘🏼‍♀️✨
Anyone have any tips/advice for meditating?

  • I get a lot of questions about what the name of my blog means so I figured I’d give you a quick rundown.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
5 years ago me and one of my good friends Christina (major boss babe- give her a follow @sunkissedbychris) started a fashion blog for fun. When thinking of names we tossed up the idea of “grace and vanity” but I made a typo and for some reason we liked it. That’s when @stylebygraveandvanity was born.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Fast forward to now I still have the same name but there’s different meaning attached to it. A synonym for grave means “having a matter of importance as a topic” and I think that describes 1/2 of my blog. I talk about real shit i.e. finance, career, and self improvement. The other half of my blog is keeping up with trends and fashion and all things in between. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So with that being said, if you are not subscribed to my blog go do so now because you’re not going to want to miss what’s coming! That’s not just an open invitation for women- there’s something for everyone. I’m devoted to creating valuable content that’s not just girly and empty bs.
