Autumn in Boston

My Fall Office Outfit

My mornings are usually extremely hectic until I hit the office at 8:30am. I typically get up anywhere between 5:30am-6am depending on when the alarm (a.ka. Mr. Axel) squeals.  We drop the kids off around 7:45am-8am and then all the commotion stops when I am… Read More

Me-Time

Ever since joining the motherhood club, me-time has become a very rare commodity. It has also taken on a whole new meaning. I don’t go to salons or spas to get pampered. In all honesty, I’ve never been that kind of girl. Shopping doesn’t delight… Read More

Yep, He’s 6 Months!

I can’t believe it but Baby Axel is really 6 months old! He’s the calmer version of Ms. Zoey who is much like her mommy. Passionate and fierce. Axel on the other hand, resembles daddy who is very laid back. He has disowned the paci… Read More

Bar Cart Love

The Perfect Lip Stain

If you’ve been searching for the perfect lip stain, search no further.  No, seriously. I’m not a huge lip gloss gal because the stickiness just gets to me.  And the typical lip stains are far too drying. I’ve recently discovered and tried Manna Kadar Lip… Read More

Bedroom Brunch

When I first saw the cover of Conde Nast Traveler back in December 2013, I was inspired. Very inspired. Immediately, I wanted a ‘Tea for Two’ corner somewhere in my house.  I was obsessively attracted to the French feel of the space.  Did a little… Read More
