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

Bar Cart Love

The next mini-project on my list is to make over a dull boring bar cart.  As I browsed through Pinterest for inspirations, I discovered that the use of bar carts are limitless.  Not only can you use them for drinks + entertaining but also as bedside… 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

Date Night- couples cooking class.

After so many years together, date night options have become very limited. Movies are out b/c I’ll probably fall asleep within thirty minutes (after 8:30pm, I can’t function). Bar hopping? We both don’t drink so that just doesn’t make any sense. Clubbing? NOT. A. CHANCE.… Read More

My Everything

She is seriously my everything. I cannot imagine one second being without her. Every night before going to bed, she kisses me and tells me “I love you so much mommy”.  Brave, courageous, funny, silly, passionate, feisty, friendly. We are so lucky she’s our daughter.
