Happy Sunday! Today, we strolled the city for five hours and it was time well spent with the family. My work is demanding and the environment is fairly fast-paced so the weekends offer a good balance. Every Friday, I leave the office feeling accomplished no matter how crazy the week was. I look forward to lazy weekend … More My Spring Blossom Bedroom
Hello! Hope you had a great holiday weekend! I’m going to keep this post very short and sweet. Just sharing a white mani that I recently wore… Nothing makes me feel more well-kept than having my nails done. I’m not really obsessed with anything else but if my nails are not trimmed and polished, it … More White Mani
Hello friends! I hope the New Year has been treating you well so far. My life has been unbelievably busy but I am not complaining! I’ve been so blessed to finally found what seems to be the job of my dreams. Ever since joining J. Jill as Art Director, I look forward to going into the office … More Life and Lattes
As parents, we’ve all been there. The struggle is real. Everything toddler-related is a losing battle. My two and a half year old son, Axel, is a real confident man. He knows what he wants and never gives up- ever. Even if that means going completely limp, lying on the floor (in public) kicking, screaming and … More Brush Happy with Hello
If you were to ask me, our kitchen is probably the one space that remains the messiest. On a nightly basis, Mr. Axel abuses it like he’s the king of the house. It doesn’t matter if it has just been swept, mopped, or scrubbed. After one dinner, the kitchen looks like it has been through a major … More Twelve Gorgeous Kitchen Marble Countertops
Happy Friday everyone! Hope you had a wonderful July 4th. I’ve been concentrating on other new exciting departments in life that I’ve been a little inconsistent w/ LZM postings. Time has been my enemy a lot lately. Many changes still not yet finalized but will share once fate, luck, moon, and the stars are aligned. … More Black, White, and Gold
Today is such a special day. Spring is finally here! YIPPIE. I would do a happy dance and take Zoey out to the park if it were not for the snowstorm that just hit us on Tuesday! What I absolutely LOVE and miss the most about spring are all the gorgeous blooms in our garden … More A Special Day!
Hello! What’s everyone doing for the extended weekend? We have more family affairs to attend to this weekend. Many family members are in town from out of state and spending A LOT of time w/ us so Zoey’s sleeping schedule is once again disrupted. Poor child! Anyhow, I’m looking forward to our nephew’s baptism, a … More A Long Weekend.
Last weekend, we did something MAJOR! We sold EVERYTHING in our living room!! Yep, if you didn’t know that we had this great master plan to completely redesign our space, you would think that one of us has gone CRAZY. And it would most likely be ME. It was a bittersweet moment for my husband … More Vision For Our New Living Space!
This post has been on my ‘to do’ list for the LONGEST time! I’m so glad that I can finally get to it. I’ve written a post about my workspace before, as seen here. But since getting my new FABULOUS office chair, the Agnes Side Chair from Stylish Furniture & Decor, I’ve been itching to … More Tour of My Workspace
I think everyone should have a creative workspace to get the job done. Although my workspace is not neat and tidy most of the time, I would like for it to stay that way! It just makes your work so much more productive and enjoyable if everything is organized and pretty. But if you are … More Creative Workspaces
So it’s Friday and I’m sure you’re ecstatic! I remember that I used to have horrible Monday morning blues and when Friday comes, it was such a wonderful feeling. Here are some peonies from our garden to help get you through the rest of your day (aren’t the last few hrs of work just dragggggging?!) … More Peonies & Friday.
Since my sister, Tam + her fiance were on the cruise w/ us, we decided to take advantage of the breathtaking setting + took a bunch of photos/videos for their engagement. Thought it might be interesting to take a few behind the scene shots documenting some of the moments in action. Dancing at sunset. Seen … More Behind the Scenes w/ T&J
Hello! Just want to share some shots of Zoey that I took while observing her sitting in a chair. Such precious and innocent moments. Gnaws on EVERYTHING! Standing on her own! It wasn’t until 9 mths ago that she entered our lives. Life is completely different now, many sleepless nights, worrisome trips to the ER … More Growing Too Fast!
Today I donned a cotton navy/white striped blazer + Ms. Zoey followed mommy’s footsteps w/ her own pants version. Love her finger long toes. Ms. Zoey mixing prints. Living in the city, comfortable flats are a MUST. Zappos has a great selection of Tahari flats. To visit their site, click here. All you mommies, stay … More All Striped Out!
A few yrs back, during our visit to Seattle, we were hosted by a gracious, lovely couple. Their home was one of the most modern and coolest spaces I’ve seen. Everything was clean, simple, functional. Although currently I’m more obsessed w/ the modern vintage, mid century style decor, I can certainly appreciate a very modern, … More A Modern Home
I always knew I didn’t want Zoey to have a girly girl room. No barbie dolls or princess themes- can be cute but just not for us. I already had a vision for her nursery- white, simple, modern, and lots of diy projects from mommy + daddy. I wanted the nursery to have the reminiscence … More Zoey’s Nursery Boutique
Another simple project to jazz up those boring white Japanese lanterns. These were seen hung in the picture below from the post An Inspirational Workspace. In case you don’t know, this is how a Japanese lantern looks like! For this project, I got mesh fabric w/ rosette patterns. Mesh is very forgiving for this project b/c … More DIY ~ Japanese Rose Lanterns
A minimalist packer, that’s me. When I travel, I pack only staple items as well as items that don’t take alot of valuable suitcase room i.e, dresses. So instead of two items of clothes (pants + top) you only need that one dress. A pair of jeans will do. Do you really all 50 pairs? … More Sunglass Case & More
Felt a sense of happy happy joy joy today when I found out that one of my postings, An Inspirational Workspace made it to the prestige pages of Dwellinggawker! Check out their website (here) to get inspired with your next home design project. Til next post, Kellie.
