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

Life in MÉDOC

This morning I woke up super early to fly out for a business affair. For the past few weeks, I’ve mentally prepared Zoey for this trip and forewarned her that mommy was going to be away for a meeting. Everything’s set, even flew grandma in to fill in my many mommy duties while I’m away … More Life in MÉDOC

Jeans and Tee

I am a huge fan of distressed jeans and a simple tee. It’s my go to ensemble especially on the weekends when I’m running around chasing the kiddos with my hair up in a bun. On date night (very rare), I’ll let my hair down, slap on some heels but will still be guilty in … More Jeans and Tee

Halloween at Home

Halloween in our home is serious business. Probably just as serious as Thanksgiving and Christmas. It’s not like we have a choice really- when there are over 3000 trick-or-treaters knocking on your door in a night, you’d better be ready. It’s also so much fun for the kiddos (secretly, I’m happy to be a kid again) to help … More Halloween at Home

Mornings

Mornings are by far my most favorite part of the day. It’s my catch up time with the things in life. Add a cup of milk tea or Vietnamese coffee and I’m golden. I love the quiet time before the chaos. You know- all the mommy duty stuff that needs to be done for the … More Mornings

Waffle Two Ways

If you haven’t eaten, I’m so sorry (#sorrynotsorry)! Today, it’s all about waffle dress-up. There’s a salty version and then a sweet one which means you can either have two individual servings (for you and a friend) or enjoy both all by yourself.   The salty one can serve as your main breakfast meal and … More Waffle Two Ways

Happy Friday

Not much happening here in my little world. Just wishing you a lovely Friday! My home office as of late. The transformation is not yet complete but very close… If you are dying over this gold gilded vase, it’s actually a little DIY project that I created. In case you’ve missed it, please click HERE … More Happy Friday

Small Bites and Tea

Preparing small bite snacks doesn’t have to be boring. For us well-rounded folks, there are many options. Think about combining your two senses- sight and taste. Everything tastes better when it looks delicious, no? Oh- and by ‘well-rounded’ I mean those of us who eat moderately healthy but can also appreciate the naughty little things … More Small Bites and Tea

Outdoor Celebrations

Nightfall is approaching sooner and Summer days are winding down so if you’ve ever dreamed of hosting an outdoor celebration, now is the time. My husband and I often have conversations about how Summer is passing by so fast and all the things that we still want to do with the kids before Fall hits. … More Outdoor Celebrations

Back to the Basics

To decorate without commitment, that is every girl’s dream. Imagine creating a wall photo collage where it requires so much planning, time, and effort only to tear it down because you’ve had a change of heart. It is just so painful. However, this is not the case with fireplace mantels. You can decorate it to … More Back to the Basics

Party-Perfect Crostini

If you are planning to take advantage of the last bits of summer entertaining, don’t do it without serving crostini appetizers. They are so quick to assemble and the topping combinations can be as wild as your imagination. Sounds interesting, no? Crostini are basically thin slices of toasted bread with eye-popping yummy toppings. Ok, maybe … More Party-Perfect Crostini
