My Whimsical Spring Bedroom

I have an addiction. I love white. If it were entirely up to me, my entire house would be white with the slightest hint of gray sprinkled with gold accents. We are renovating our kids’ room right now and the thought of having to incorporate pink and/or blue anything gives me hives. I don’t believe … More My Whimsical Spring Bedroom

My Cafe Station

There is this special little nook in my dining room that gives me the warm fuzzies every morning. My cafe station is where I make the foamiest cup of decaf latte to start the day. I don’t drink coffee to wake me up, I drink it for the taste and experience. My sister who takes her coffee … More My Cafe Station

Random Abode Notes

Hello! This post is kinda sorta random. There’s  no rhyme or reason. I’ve been so busy with the little troublemakers being sick that I haven’t had a chance to really do anything else at all. My life right now is 100% consumed with taking care of the kiddos and getting them back to being healthy! … More Random Abode Notes

Quiet Mornings

It’s very rare that I can enjoy a peaceful quiet morning by myself. Between mommy duties, home renovations, and work (many exciting new partnerships in the works…), it’s a miracle if I can even shower for more than 15 minutes. Life of a modern mom right? So when opportunity presents itself, I don’t object. In … More Quiet Mornings

Half-Wilted

Isn’t just painful that you spend so much money on fresh flowers and they barely last for a week? I don’t care where  you get your blooms; we all face the same problem. Once they begin to wilt, the water starts to smell like mildew so the next logical step is to toss them out, … More Half-Wilted

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 me anymore because it defeats my decluttering mindset. I’ve been … More Me-Time

DIY: CHALKBOARD

The last post that I’ve shared about our dining room makeover was the DIY Tea-Space as seen here.  Well, here’s another mini-DIY project that we’ve recently just finished. It was a lot of back and forth about what to put on this little blank corner wall. I initially wanted to hang a picture of the … More DIY: CHALKBOARD

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 tables, bath carts, or even as bookshelves. As I dug … More Bar Cart Love

DIY: Tea Space

Our home renovation is going s l o w l yyyyy, but who can blame us? We have a 5 month old infant and a toddler who’s as energetic as ever. There’s literally no time in the day for any type of extracurricular activities whatsoever. Kids and work take up 99.9% of our time. Outside, we … More DIY: Tea Space

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 home such a Spring-ish vibe! You’ll also get to see … More Spring Mantel

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 energetic as ever. Napping?! Nah– it’s for the weak folks.  … More DIY RAINCLOUD MOBILE

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 side of the wall in a white pearly damask pattern. … More Wallpaper Wow!

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 make the entire 3rd level the master suite with two … More Organizing Handbags

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 steps outside my house to snap some pics before everything … More Outside. Inside.
