  • We all embrace motherhood in different ways. This is how my motherhood journey began . . .  I was not one to embrace pregnancy like it was the most fabulous thing on earth. To be truthful, I saw it as a means to an end. It’s kind of hard to explain, but I wasn’t very emotional about the whole thing (I…

  • Holy time, wasn’t it just Christmas?! Gone are the days when we could just make brunch reservations and call it good, now we actually have to prepare for Easter. Maaaaybe we could get away with it this year (Isla’s two), but then the guilt would inevitably creep in. So like any good mama, I grabbed everything bunnified at Target, threw it…

  • SHOCKINGLY I have a nearly two year old. First, let me indulge and be a cheesy mom for a quick sec – past the first few weeks of sleep deprivation and “oh shit, what did we do?” and the “will we ever have enough time to drink endless bottles of wine at our favorite restaurant EVER again!?” – life just…

  • By far my favorite people to shop for during the holidays are the littles in the family. It’s just the best to see the looks on those little faces! And because Isla doesn’t have time in her day to read the blog, I can tell you her big gift is a (push) car . . . a Porsche. She is…

  • Colorful things for kiddos is necessary (in my opinion) especially for leaning (duh) colors. But not everything needs to be neon. And not everything needs to be pink and purple. Above are a few favorite simple things. A couple at the top of my list are the utensils and bib. We own one bib. One. The size is adjustable, easy to…

  • The best thing about fall used to be spiked hot apple cider, baking the first apple pie of the season, breaking in the fireplace, and the first day I really needed that sweater BUT NOW it’s also about miniature cozy clothes for Isla. I admittedly invest a bit more in her clothing, but I also buy exponentially less. I look for about…

  • I love a good neutral or pretty pastel (before you hate on me, Isla’s room is full of colorful accents). I think there’s something soothing about keeping things simple, whether it’s a toy or a piece of clothing. The number one question I get these days is – how do you keep a sophisticated style in your home with all the baby stuff?…

  • Dying Easter eggs is about as DIY as I get. I’ve seen how-to’s on natural egg dying floating around Pinterest for weeks, all easy, I mean it is just dye. But there’s something about a more than 2-step process that makes my brain turn off. This natural egg dying kit from Bitte pretty much solves all my problems. I wanna…

  • Such a cute idea for the littles that don’t quite understand Valentine’s Day yet, but still deserve a little something sweet. Or a fun way to celebrate and have a sweet memento from the holiday to save as a keepsake. You can buy them here, or do as a fun DIY with a little one. They have stencils, paint and wood…

  • Always on the lookout for baby goodies, not just for Isla, everyone everyone I know is pregnant. I feel like I’m buying gifts weekly. A new love is Bitte. Owned by the art director of one of my fave magazines, RUE. The shop is filled with fun, modern, useful toys for little ones. Even better, these cool toys aren’t a billion…
