Fresh Start for Spring

Fresh Start for Spring on Waketon Road

On Sunday I woke up to what felt like a spring morning. Which was a very welcome change to the previous week of temperatures in the teens. Now that I’ve had a taste of warmer weather I’m craving spring. I haven’t been thinking too much about a spring wardrobe lately but I have to admit this weekend got me in the mood for everything pastel. Brian will be traveling to...

How To Deal With Frustration

How To Deal With Frustration on Waketon Road

There has been so much conversation this week with my #InstaFam about the changes in the Instagram algorithm. My girl Dana of The Champagne Edit even did a post about how she’s adapted to it. I’ve had several conversations with my blogger friends about the changes. We’ve discussed what our strategy going forward should be. Also what seems to be working for other people. But the number one thing that...

Frequently Asked Questions

I was going through some of my DMs on Instagram the other day and realized I have been asked a lot of great questions. Some of the questions were asked multiple times and others were just topics I wanted to share more of. So I decided to change-up today’s format to answer a few frequently asked questions. Being totally honest, I’m not one of those people who get 500 DMs...

Working with Purpose

Work With Purpose on Waketon Road

One of my goals for 2018 is to work with more of a purpose. What I mean by that is that I want there to be a goal or an intention behind my efforts. This is true for every area of my life, professionally, personally, blogging, etc. I felt like last year I stumbled upon a few successes but didn’t really apply myself in the most effective way. 2017 wasn’t...

Self-Promotion: How To Do It Right

Four ways to make "self-promotion" easier on Waketon Road

If you are anything like me, self-promotion is hard. Why is it that we can be the biggest cheerleaders for our friends and family, but when it comes to ourselves we fall flat? I have always believed that hard work pays off. And while I think that’s true, it doesn’t pay off (at least not quickly) when no one knows about the great things you are doing. My struggle with...

Four Ways to Make 2018 A Success

As I said in this post I’ve set a few goals for myself in 2018. I always believe in writing your goals down. I think it helps you visualize what you want to accomplish. It also gives you a reference to look back on to track your progress. In addition to writing my goals down there are a few other things I’m doing to make sure 2018 is a success....

2017 Travel Roundup

A Weekend at Hambleton Hall on Waketon Road Blog

As we near the end of 2017 I’m going back over everything that has happened this year and looking forward to what’s to come. I’m not sure what it is about the approaching new year that makes everyone so reflective. Maybe it’s the chance to start fresh. I’m not one for New Year’s resolutions, but I do love the idea of setting new goals. Original Post: San Diego for the...

A Couple of Classics

A Couple of Classics - Waketon Road wearing Cuyana & J.Crew

I’m pretty classic when it comes to everything. I don’t hop on the trendy bandwagon right away, and will always go for the timeless pieces. I’ve said before that the camel coat is one of my ultimate must have wardrobe items. It’s my most worn coat color and will always be the first coat I reach for. There is a richness to the color that just makes every outfit feel...
