First Day Out

Don’t get me wrong. It’s not like ever since I’ve had Axel, I’ve been hibernating. Of course I’ve been out and about…but never without leggings, a comfy tee, cozy uggs, an oversized jacket, and a mommy bun. Comfort is my first priority lately. Seriously, with… Read More

Tuesday Morning

I am gradually adapting to my new role as mother of two. Mornings typically start way before sunrise. My sister (who’s visiting & has been extremely helpful) takes care of Axel in the late morning so I can sneak in some alone time.  This morning,… Read More

A Week’s Recap

Happy Friday everyone! This week has been both exhausting and fun. Axel is almost a month old and he’s been more challenging than usual. He’s up every two hrs. at night and refuses to nap during the day unless I hold him so it’s a… Read More

DIY RAINCLOUD MOBILE

I’ve been lacking so much sleep, it’s insane. Axel’s been waking up every 1.5-2 hrs at night. Each time he brutally wakes me up, I swear I would nap during the day to make up for the lost sleep. However, when morning comes I’m as… Read More

Wallpaper Wow!

Like many, I associate wallpaper with flower walls in grandma’s kitchen. Outdated, tacky, and oh so NOT me! Funny how things have changed because nowadays I am ALL about them. In fact, our bathroom renovation is about halfway complete and we are wallpapering the sink… Read More

Organizing Handbags

My life lacks organization right now. This is the one thing that I’m constantly struggling with. Although our new home provides four times the space compared to the previous one, it’s under renovation so nothing is where it’s supposed to be. There’s a vision to… Read More

The Gift

Let me start off with this…Valentine’s for us has never been about gifts. EVER. It has always been about the card-to-card exchanging action. Some yrs. there are flowers and others we may even go all fancy with a dinner date. However, with a toddler in… Read More

Outside. Inside.

We are trying to stay as warm and cozy as possible as the worst of the nor’easter approaches closer. Outside, a blanket of snow covers the ground. Inside, I’m all bundled up and trying to keep my toes toasty with fuzzy slippers. Took a few… Read More

New Beginnings…

A little over 2 yrs ago, I received the greatest gift of all. The gift of Zoey Le. She was everything that I have hoped for but nothing that I have expected. I didn’t expect that having a baby would turn me into an uber… Read More

Nightstand Makeover

I’ve always had a thing for thrifted items, particularly furniture pieces. You never know what gems you’ll find. Yes, it takes a little work to turn these loved treasures into something spectacular but it’s well worth the effort. Seven months ago, we bought a pair… Read More

Holiday Mantel

Hello! Hope everyone had a great weekend. Since we were stuck in the house because of a wintery snowstorm, we were fairly domesticated. Daddy and Z sewed white X-mas stockings while I put all the pieces together to create the most festive mantel ever!  Mantel… Read More

Zoey At 25 Mths

Good morning! The hubs is currently on a business trip so yesterday mommy and me had some precious ‘alone time’. I had grande plans to put Zoey to bed early (7pm) so I can have the rest of the night all by myself. My plan… Read More

Bump It Up #2

I can’t say that I feel (or look) my best while sportin’ a bump. It’s getting more challenging dressing up the growing belly. Two days ago, I wore the most hideous outfit to work- and believe me, it influenced the way I felt the entire… Read More

Radiator Charm

What a beautiful Saturday morning! Each morning we are awakened by the stir that Zoey makes as she crawls into our bed. Most of the time, this happens at 5:30am. Today, she climbed into our bed at 7am. It’s very precious and sweet. She lays… Read More

Nest

I’m slightly disappointed in myself for not posting more frequently.  Basically, by the time I put Zoey down for the night, I am thoroughly spent. I’ll blame it on the pregnancy! Anyhow, I stumbled on this site called nest.co.uk and saw some of the most… Read More
