Sangria is definitely my summer drink of choice. Over the years, KW has become quite the sangria mixologist and has developed a signature recipe that is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser at summer togethers. This summer, my lovely beau has created a totally different virgin sangria recipe that I can enjoy. It’s sweet and citrus flavors are so […]

7 maternity friendly exercises

The benefits of working out throughout pregnancy are abundant. Keeping up with a fitness routine helps alleviate aches and pains during pregnancy and supposedly makes labor faster and even less painful (I can’t say that was totally true in my first pregnancy with a 26 hour labor — yikes!) and can we talk about the […]

Casual maternity outfit

I haven’t worn a ruched dress since college when I had a weekend-induced affinity for club wear. As a thirty-year-old professional, I don’t have many ruched pieces on hand (aside from one ruched bikini bottom I can’t part with despite not wearing it for six years). I’ve wanted to get my hands on this particular ruched […]


1. Walking down Abbot Kinney where Harlowe and I like to pop in to Lemonade (we’re so LA now!) for salad (me) and truffle macaroni and cheese (her). Wearing a PinkBlush dress and Urban Outfitters hat. 2. My morning beauty routine: Wash with L’Occitane foaming face wash and moisturize with CE Ferulic and Murad Vitamin C  face cream and perfect with a few […]

After moving to LA, we let our weekly date night fall by the wayside. Balancing work and parenthood – plus a move to a new city – made the concept of date night daunting.  Both of us were eager to get some alone time to try some of the restaurants around our new place. First […]

I hope you all had a great Mother’s Day weekend with your little ones and/or mothers! I had the chance to do some prenatal yoga (thank you, KW!) and reflect on being a mother. It’s such a wonderful day to celebrate the women who helped make us who we are and the kids who continue […]

I like you a lot

Well, we’ve made it through another week! These photos are from last weekend. Harlowe and I went for a walk around the neighborhood and I had to put her in these shoes I collected a while back. I’m obsessed with DSW for kids shoes because they have such stylish kicks and killer prices. When something catches […]

This outfit was made possible by my iPhone and a few of the best fashion apps there are. As you may know, I am arguably addicted to online shopping. The convenience of it, the thrill of filling up my cart and finding promo codes to cut down costs all give me a buyer’s high. I […]
