LZM Style: Cafe Date

One of the many things that I adore about Boston is that there are cute cafe shops in every nook and cranny.  Cafes are the perfect place to catch up with gal pals about work, kids, and life in general. There’s just something about the… Read More

Here’s a view outside my office window yesterday.… Read More

Baby Holiday Pics 101

I can’t say that I live life with no regrets. Lately, I’ve been feeling a lot of mommy guilt. Everyday we go through the same cycle of dropping the kids off, rushing to work, preparing dinner, and submerging ourselves with the nightly grind of bedtime… Read More

The Graham & Brown Decision

Although at times our home renovation process feels overwhelming, hopeless, and never-ending; there is light at the end of the tunnel! After a long and excruciating 6 month work on the exterior, it’s going to be completed by the end of next week. We’ve had… Read More

Holiday Prep

How do you prep your home for the holidays? We usually decorate with lights, garlands, poinsettias, and wreaths. Oh and of course it wouldn’t be complete without festive holiday music softly humming  in the background- nonstop. Today, we dug out some holiday stuff that’s been hibernating in the… Read More

DIY Gold Pumpkins

I have the fondest memories of Halloween growing up. It was always a holiday that we look forward to each year. Our entire neighborhood transformed into something quite magical, slightly spooky, and so spectacular just for one night. And like magic- poof! everything returns to… Read More

Autumn in Boston

I am in love with my city.  And even more so in the Fall. It’s dreamy, charming, and full of character. I’ve roamed the streets of Paris, Rome, Barcelona, and Lisbon among other places outside of the US and I can honestly say, Boston has… Read More

Kale Edamame Salad

I’ve never really been a salad girl- until I had kids. Your metabolism doesn’t function the same as it used to pre-baby. I can’t say that I’m still one of those lucky gals who can eat like a beast, doesn’t exercise, and manage to maintain… Read More

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
