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 homework and found out that The Champagne Bar’s (@ Plaza … More Bedroom Brunch
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
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 bit difficult to do anything else. Somehow, I managed to … More A Week’s Recap
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
Being a mother to a newborn is exhausting to say the least!

Yes, I have the company of the precious one but at this point he eats, poops, … More Friday Musings
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 Outdated, tacky, and oh so NOT me!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!
These spaces are so gorgeously white, I can’t even deal. I’ve longed for an all white space all my life and finally will get one! We are currently renovating our master bathroom and it’s going to have heated white marble floors, white marble walls, white sink/cabinet, and an insanely gorgeous white clawfoot tub. I can’t … More Gorgeously White
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 and really need to slow down. Lounging in bed isn’t … More Saturday Morning.
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 of nightstand for $20 (!) a piece. After some sanding … More Nightstand Makeover
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.

Life might finally return to normalcy again! It feels familiar and so good to sit in front of MY computer. I work so much faster knowing where all the programs are. Love me some efficiency.

This month, it’s all about Peonies & Tea! You can substitute the dried peonies and tea with any of your fav … More Peony & Tea Sugar Scrub
Hello! I’m thankful it’s already Thursday. There’s so much going on right now in our lives (all new and very exciting) but it can either all fall apart or come together. In one month, we will know where we stand in many departments (professionally & personally). When it rains, it definitely pours. I guess I … More Muffin + Mauve
My mother is a glamorous woman. When I was a child, I always thought that she was so beautiful…with her wavy hair, pinkish red lips, and multicolor eyeshadows. I’m sure I’ve rummaged through her makeup bags many times and wished that I would grow up in a hurry so I can wear all the fantastic … More All Her Chanel

Lunch was quick and easy (sandwich + soup), got some new footwear for Zoey, went to the market to get food for dinner, and grabbed a movie on the way home (I fell asleep 10mins in- nothing new). The husband … More Our Saturday On Instagram
