Beyond the Table


  1. Did you see that I’m HIRING?! ?
  2. Can we talk about how obsessed I am with Chip and Joanna Gaines of Fixer Upper? I binge watched season 1 on Netflix and I’m now recording every Fixer Upper marathon HGTV has. I want them to design our home. Why do they have to be in Waco, TX? They should do a traveling Fixer Upper starting with my house ;)

  1. I bought this Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Gentle Daily Foaming Cleanser a couple weeks ago and I am in LOVE. I have been looking for a gentle daily face cleanser for a while and finally found one I love. It smells fruity like Starbursts, haha
  2. On days I don’t use the foaming cleanser, I exfoliate with this Murad cleanser. The beads aren’t super harsh and it’s got three agents (salicylic acid, lactic acid, and glycolic acid) that I heard are AWESOME for your face and if you can find a cleanser with all three in there, it’s the one you should get.
  3. The Grammy’s – what’d you think? I still don’t know why Kendrick Lamar is so popular and Justin Bieber looked like a Mexican drug lord (sorry, haha).
  4. Sam Hunt. New fav. So so good and super cute.
  5. I’m giving in. Once we move to a new house, my housewarming gift to myself is an espresso machine. I’m drinking lattes more and more these days and I’m thinking how much money I’d be saving if I just made it myself. Plus, all the different latte creations I could make! Do you have an espresso machine? Which one do you recommend? I’m thinking of this one.
  6. I started watching Hart of Dixie. It’s one of those shows that you aren’t 100% invested into it but it keeps your attention enough that you want to keep watching, you know?
  7. Sad, but true. Ever since I started working more and more from home, my outfits are all the same (leggings and sweatshirt), most days I don’t eat on a normal schedule, online shopping is my bff, and I drink more coffee now. I used to not drink any coffee at 3pm because I can’t sleep, but not anymore, haha I totally am an afternoon coffee drinker now.

YES YES YES to that espresso machine! You won't regret it. Just be prepared to never enjoy coffee out again (unless its the best coffee shop ever).

Hah, getting a good espresso machine is amazing. We have a fully automatic one from Delonghi (except I still have to clean it, darn), and my coffee intake is higher than ever! Also, just got back from London and followed many of your recommendations! Thanks for sending me to Dishoom, Monmouth, and Bread Ahead! I wouldn't have eaten half as well without your blog. Cheers from your biggest fan in Italy!
