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

ZA

Good morning! Hope you are enjoying your weekend. We’ve been blessed with very good weather so far.  Yesterday, we made a family trip to ZA, a restaurant that offers unique pizzas and salads featuring local and sustainable farm-fresh ingredients. As Axel snoozed away in his… Read More

A Bittersweet Day

Today is a very bittersweet day. It’s Zoey’s last day at daycare and then she transitions to preschool at another institution. Zoey has come a very long way. From her first day screaming and crying because she was terrified to now- not wanting to go… Read More

“I’m Sad.”

Zoey does not have a problem telling us exactly how she feels. Some mornings, she would wake up and shout “I’m happy!” out of the blue. This was not one of those times. This time, she was ‘sad’ and it happened to be while we… Read More

A Le Zoe Morning

Lucky for me, I have a husband who enjoys cooking. During the summer time, I’ll have homemade pastas and ice cream to look forward to. This past weekend, he made a savory quiche for breakfast. It was a team effort, Zoey helped with making a… Read More

Zoey in the City

Zoey is now 2 months shy of 3 yrs old and I’ll have to say that we didn’t really go through too much terrible two tantrums (knock on wood!).  Sure, there were a few incidents where she went a little crazy but I can probably… Read More

Spring Mantel

If you have a thing for home decor, you may enjoy this post. Here’s a glimpse into our living room, particularly the fireplace mantel which I’ve adorned with cherry blossoms. I love cherry blossoms because they are so delicate, elegant, and airy. They give our… Read More

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

Nail Files

I don’t remember the last time I wore my hair down, or dressed up for a date night, or showered on a daily basis for that matter. Seriously, what have I turned into? I once was THAT girl. The one who used to wear heels… 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

Here he comes!

It has been an exciting week for us! We recently just welcomed Baby AXEL into the family. He’s a tiny little thing and perfect in every way. Our small family of four is complete and I can’t wait to witness all of his milestones. P.S.… Read More

Good Monday morning! I’m currently at home nesting, getting ready for baby boy to arrive. Yesterday was my Fantasy Tea baby shower with some of my family females. Zoey was so adorable. She wore a white ZARA dress with touches of blue in honor of… 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

Bed Hair Friday

Today was one of those unanticipated mommy duty call days. Zoey stayed home from school because she wasn’t feeling too well so the hubs and I took turns taking care of her. I had her solo for the first half of the day so he… Read More

Saturday Morning.

I love weekend mornings. It’s the time of the day when I feel most energized. Despite wanting to immediately jump out of bed and start conquering my to-do list (why am I always on a marathon?!), I am reminding myself that I’m 8 mths pregnant… 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

A Little Holiday Video

Merry X-Mas everyone! We had the best time last night. Our family gatherings has gotten a bit OFC (out of control). Lots of food, crazy laughter, and love. The sweetest part of the night was when everyone gathered around to watch Zoey open all her… Read More

Candy Cane Nails

It sure doesn’t feel like X-Mas in sunny Fl but that doesn’t mean your digits have to reflect the mood! I miss the cold air, festive lights, and snow up in Boston but spending time with my family here in Miami makes up for the… Read More
