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 a 5 week old newborn (who refuses to sleep at … More First Day Out
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, it’s tea & pastry. I also attempted to finish reading … More Tuesday Morning
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 anytime, anywhere, and with everything. Even jogging pants. That was … More Nail Files
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
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. Zoey has been a great big sister! She is transitioning … More Here he comes!
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 her baby brother. She loved tea time and basically devoured … More Fantasy Tea
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 the mix, who has time to plan such extravagant V-days?! … More The Gift
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 can attend his meetings. From wake up time til’ when … More Bed Hair Friday
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.
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 early morning person, gave me anxiety every time I leave … More New Beginnings…
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 gifts from her loving aunts and uncles. It was such … More A Little Holiday Video
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 lack of holiday ‘feel’. We’ve been having massive family get-togethers … More Candy Cane Nails
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 details: fresh poinsettias + cypress garland, dried pine cones, faux … More Holiday Mantel
The holidays are right around the corner. Hopefully, I can post up some holiday stuff soon but since I haven’t had the chance, here’s a few holiday-related posts that I’ve written in the past. Click on image to go to original post. Above is a holiday dinner party that we hosted last yr. See what … More Holiday Roundup
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 backfired as I eventually fell asleep with her! I simply … More Zoey At 25 Mths
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 day…ugly and ghastly. I totally believe that looking your best … More Bump It Up #2
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 right between us and as the mornings get chillier, it’s … More Radiator Charm
I’m so thrilled to share what we’ve known for over 4 months now! Something’s been baking and no, it’s not Parisian bread. There’s a bun in the oven and it’s due this upcoming winter!! We feel so incredibly blessed and extremely excited to give Zoey a little sibling. I’m anxious to meet our little bundle … More What’s Baking?!
While in Paris, one of the things that I really wanted to do was go to the Lover’s Bridge and lock our love… forever. The Lover’s Bridge is actually a chain link fence of the Pont Des Arts (crosses the left bank to the Louvre museum). Lovers write love notes on padlocks and lock it … More Lover’s Bridge
