Blog B-Day

It is the second year of The Girl From Connecticut! I am really excited to see what this new year brings not only for the blog but for life in general. I always reminisce about the day that I first started my blog, I wasn’t sure what I was doing, I had no idea how much work it would take and certainly did not know how much I would come to love and appreciate having a platform of my own. Yet amongst the stress from college and work when I come home, I have not given up on my dream for my blog. I am now on chapter 2 out of my more and I couldn’t be more thrilled.

Summer Favorites




It is crazy to think that just in a couple of weeks autumn will begin. Over the course of the summer, there are some items that I have tried or read that I love and want to share with you. Some of these items have been worked into my everyday routine, for leisure, or productivity. I would love to know if you have tried or loved any of these items too!

Favorite NYC Spots


Every time I go into NYC, I am reminded why I love it so much. I love the hustle and how fast paced it is. I love the uniqueness and the diversity of the people, the energy, food, stores, and fashion. I really hope that at some point in my life I will be able to live there for a few years. Over the years I have been able to compile a list of places that I really enjoy going to and places I really like to see when I have the chance to visit. I am the type of person that orders the same meal when I go the restaurants that I love, will go to the same places and see the same things that I love and to me it doesn’t get old. I will always be amazed by the same things in NYC because sometimes you might find something new in old places.

A week or so ago, I went into the city so I decided to share some of the photos with you.

Smoothie Talk

Processed with VSCOcam with t1 preset

Over the course of the past two months I have been addicted to drinking smoothies in the morning. I have to say that the only reason I started drinking them was because my school opened a section in the cafe that makes fresh smoothies from fruit and vegetables. Part of my New Year’s Resolution was to eat more fruits and vegetables, and by me drinking a smoothie every morning, I feel as though I am fulfilling my goal.

Last Minute Christmas Gifts

Holiday Post

I cannot believe that the Christmas Season has crept up on us again. It is crazy how fast time is going. There are endless options when it comes to gift giving but I am not the most creative person when it comes to picking out items. I am more of a need based giver. I love giving or receiving gifts that I will be able to use and wear.

I have put together a list of items that you can get for loved ones this Christmas.

Happy Mother’s Day

Today is a day to celebrate our mothers! 

 My mom is the strongest and most influential woman in my life. She is my rock. There is so much that my mother has sacrificed for me and my brothers and I am forever grateful to her. My mom has shown me what unconditional love is and has taught me the importance of forgiveness. There is no better advice than the advice I have received from my mom.

Happy Mother’s Day! I hope that you may have a wonderful and blessed day!
