BUTTERBLUME

Butterblume is one cool concept. It’s a restaurant, cafe and floral boutique all under one open space. While in Montreal, my husband and I visited this place for brunch. We sat at the bar and had a clear view of the chefs prepping magic. The ingredients are fresh and simple yet what’s on your plate … More BUTTERBLUME

A Perfect Mother’s Day Gift: Saving Memories with Acrylic Prints

As a family, we take a lot of mini-adventures. With every little special field trip comes plenty of pictures. These pictures tell a story, help relive a moment in time and save memories that don’t happen again. As a mother, the greatest gift is simply the most meaningful. For me, it’s photos of our family that’ll stand … More A Perfect Mother’s Day Gift: Saving Memories with Acrylic Prints

Staying Connected

Like most modern homes, at any given time— we could have up to six devices connected to wi-fi. I am the first to admit, occasionally I would allow my kids to go ham on their tablets so I could have some peace and quiet. I’m not sorry about it. Unless you’re responsible my kids and my … More Staying Connected

Garlic and Herb Tomatoes by Ina Garten

I love watching cooking shows. Currently, I’m obsessed with Chef’s Table on Netflix. It’s one of the most inspiring documentary series I’ve ever seen. The show highlights renowned chefs from around the globe and the way that it’s shot and produced is something so extraordinary and magical. It’s very cinematic and the storytelling of each chef’s struggles … More Garlic and Herb Tomatoes by Ina Garten

A Day in the City

It’s hard to believe that the weather lately has been so frigid cold. Last month, we’ve had days in the 60’s where some light layering was enough to keep you comfortable. Luckily, the stars and moon aligned when my sisters came to visit back in February and the weather was just that— perfect in the 60’s! I … More A Day in the City

Hands Full

The struggle is real. There is a challenge balancing the many duties that we have as women at home & in the corporate world. For me, juggling both mommyhood & work although feels tough and impossible at times— makes me whole. I don’t feel complete without both. They feed off one another. Imagine dealing with a tantrum toddler … More Hands Full

Snow Day

Today was an official snow day for us. The office shut down and the schools were closed. However, the hubs went to work because he works at the hospital and it never closes. I had to spend the day solo with the littles which makes me a little nervous. Lately, there has been a lot of terrible two … More Snow Day

The Mini-Luxuries

Isn’t life about the little things? The simple touches, the small acts of kindness, the subtle ways to express that you care- they’re all a big part of our happiness. For me, it’s the little quiet moments that I can steal for myself- listening to French Jazz, blogging, polishing my nails, flipping catalogs, sipping lattes, … More The Mini-Luxuries

Focus on the Journey

I don’t know what’s happening with me but lately, I’ve been looking at life a whole lot differently. I’m more in tuned with the journey rather than the trophy. I’m going through some professional transitions right now and have been actively networking a lot– a process that I’m not that great at (or so I … More Focus on the Journey

Home Tour: A Brf Stinsen Condo in Gothenburg Sweden

This condo absolutely blows my mind. I would never dare do a black wall but somehow it works like magic here. Everything about this space is so beautiful and thoughtfully curated. It has been through several gentle renovations with all original details being preserved and restored as much as possible. The condo was built in 1899, … More Home Tour: A Brf Stinsen Condo in Gothenburg Sweden
