I blinked suddenly we are more than halfway done with summer. Where did the time go?! I plan to use the weekend to finish up on some home projects, catch some rays, and finally get a much needed cut and color. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
- SHOP. I know this seems ridiculous, but I am kind of in love (and want) with this marble iPhone case.
- DO. See in one graphic all the real places used in the shooting of Game of Thrones (and maybe plan a trip to one of these gorgeous places too!)
Playing peekaboo is a popular past time in my household these days. As a result, it made sense that my summer wardrobe reflect the same playfulness. This dress from Madewell is the perfect apparel version of the game. Its subtle cut-out allows you to bare just a bit of torso, which for one who doesn’t like to show a lot of midriff was just enough to feel fun and sophisticated. PS…it has pockets!!! Read more
Life has certainly become busier these past few months. Between work and taking care of baby, it can be a challenge to find time for myself. Thankfully, I have discovered, and become reliant upon, a few essential products that help me keep it all together…and they are all under $50! Read more
I like the bold punch of neon colors but it can often be too harsh to wear. That is why I love this softer neon orange (it reminds me of orange sherbert) tank which can complement almost anything. I decided to pair it with military green faux wrapped skirt. I kind of love this color combo, do you? Read more
When my parents visited Taiwan they found some old photographs at my grandmother’s place. During one of our Facetime dates with A, my father showed me a few pictures of when I was little, some of which I don’t remember seeing before. It got me thinking about today’s technology and how photos can be instantly shared with a click of a button. While the instant gratification is a benefit, it makes me sad to think about losing that experience of uncovering old photographs in a box years or decades later. Additionally, given the rapid pace of innovation, we don’t really know what the longevity of digital photos will be given how storage devices and online photo sharing sites can become obsolete or go out of business.
Perhaps it’s a generational thing, but I have a soft spot for physical photographs. Now that I have a family of my own, I want to leave behind artifacts that can be discovered over and over again by future generations. If you feel the same way, here are ways to preserve your memories in the digital age. Read more
My love for Rose’s Luxury led me to another product love. While using their washroom, I discovered the most delicious hand soap and immediately had to get some for my guest bathroom. I know, who would get excited about hand soap? Read more
The husband and I planned a dinner date on short notice this past weekend. It wasn’t until after the reservation was made that I realized our wedding anniversary was coming up. Therefore, it was our anniversary dinner! These days I need to be able to get ready quick so I slipped on this shift dress. It’s light and airy…just what is needed on a warm night. Read more
I learned the term “Normcore” last year when it blew up the fashion world. It describes an “anti-style” style, think bland, non-descript clothing. Some may argue that it’s not a trend all. Regardless, I have embraced more basics into my wardrobe making it easy to get dressed in the morning. Normcore or not, it’s definitely practical and stylish. Read more
I have developed a guilty pleasure. Correction. I am addicted to eating delicious, buttery, flaky, chocolate croissants. There are two great places near my house which makes it so easy to walk by (the exercise) to get one (the reward) with your morning coffee that gives its country of origin a run for their money.

Lately, I have been channeling my shopping skillz towards things for Baby A. It’s been fun searching for things that are a little less traditional. Over the past few months, I have developed quite a loyalty to a few brands that emulate my love for all things modern, edgy, and/or quirky. If you are expecting or searching for that perfect gift for someone who has little ones, here’s a few items to consider. Read more
