Weekend Reading

By Kate Riley July 13, 2018

Hello friends! Happy summer weekend to you! This week I started my Invisalign treatment, I am documenting my progress with a few videos and I’ll combine them and share my experience as I go through the program. I’ve been wanting to straighten my crooked bottom teeth for years so I’m finally doing it! So far so good, I’m 48 hours in and it’s not bad! I wish I’d done this sooner!

Things have been slower on the blog in the past two weeks, my apologies. I have a dear sweet friend who is in the hospital with pancreatitis (ouch) so I’ve been visiting her daily trying to cheer her up.

I have a few projects in the works but progress has been slowed so I’m anxious to get back to completing them. :)

Favorite links….


Bria Hammel’s Baltimore new build project is design perfection.

I so love the layers and palette in this NY Victorian renovation.


This designer showcase home in the Hamptons is filled with much inspiration.

Got teenagers? A new method for limiting phone screen time.

Hidden ways to shop on Amazon.

Longevity: a reason to eat chocolate every day.

Fascinating job: the key keeper to the Vatican.

This itinerary makes me want to book a trip to the Amalfi Coast ASAP.

Did you hear? The Downton Abbey movie is coming.





  1. Congratulations on taking the Invisalign plunge! I’m just about done with mine and it’s been pretty easy all the way through!

    The best tip I got was to put the aligners in a little dish of water with some blue dawn dish soap while they are out while I’m eating. This keeps them shiny and clean.

    I’m also so glad it did it! Good luck!

    • I can’t wait till my program is over and my teeth are straight! I’ll be so happy!! Thanks for the cleanser tip!

  2. Take a toothbrush with you everywhere! I had top and bottom and had to wear 21 hrs a day for 6 months! I did make the mistake of having work done after instead of before so had to get a new retainer. Wear them at night now to keep teeth looking great!

  3. That Baltimore Home is perfection! The Amalfi Coast is one of my most favorite places on this earth! Every view is like a post card. We had our base in Sorrento up on the hillside and the views were ridiculous! As much as you like to travel, you need to add that to your list. We went in early October and there weren’t crowds. The weather was perfection! We took a day trip to Capri and did swim some. The water was chilly but not unbearable. If you truly want a lot of beach time, I’d go in summer though.
