Why oh why did no one tell me about this range of post-partum and nursing lingerie 11 mths ago??? I have some cute cotton polka dot nursing bras but they still feel very BLEGH. I would have snapped all of these up in a heartbeat! The queen of vintage style... Continue reading

How do you like my sensationalist tabloid heading? Did it get your attention? Well, there's no scandal here. The PinUp girl in question is Pin UpGirl clothing (or PUG as we gals affectionately call them) and they have finally released a maternity line! When I first became pregnant I had... Continue reading

I've actually gotten to have some quality internet browsing time over the last week so I've got lots to share! Matthew Weiner discusses the Mad Men set. This was my first Sunday night without Mad Men and I'm already missing it. Are you? June means Summer even though it's cold... Continue reading

Little Miss Phoebe is 9 months old now. Which means she's not so little anymore! *cries* Let's just look back to when she was 9 months into her lease inside my tummy. Oh wow, hello pink hair. I miss you. These days Phoebe is pulling herself up to stand, crawling... Continue reading

So if you've read this blog for a long time you will know that I am OBSESSED with scented things. My favorite aisle in any grocery store or Target is the Sniffy aisle. I always have an arsenal of scented plugins, candles, and sprays under my kitchen sink. Actually, I... Continue reading

I've been bitten by the gold dot bug. It all started with the gold polka dot bows I bought for Phoebe from Bloomies Handmade. Now I want everything to be covered in gold dots! Lucky for me I'm not alone and there are SO many things covered in glittery gold... Continue reading

When we first brought Phoebe home from the hospital we used Pampers Swaddlers. The hospital had given us a TON of them and free is one of my favorite things! They worked just fine and we were happy with them. Early on in my pregnancy I had plans for how... Continue reading

I am totally late to the party but I am obsesed with Don't Trust the B in Apt 23. I don't know why I waited so long to watch it. Oh, yes I do.. after Seinfeld all network sitcoms tend to bore me. But I love love love Krysten Ritter so I decided to give it a shot. I was feeling a little under the weather (read sniffly, scratchy throat and surpremely lazy) so I sat down and had a marathon and finished all of Season 1 and half of Season 2. OBSESSED I tell you. The writing is pretty... Continue reading

Dalia, Ooh thanks so much for letting me know. I have only been hearing praise so far so it's important to hear any negative reviews. I really don't like annoying set up/take down. I'll have to go try it out! xoxo Dolly

Now I know I am a Mom. You know, just in case the cooing baby attatched to me left any room for doubt. First, I was lusting over a fancy space age looking high chair and now I am "oohing and aahing" over a stroller. Don't worry, I still love... Continue reading

Even though Phoebe is 5 months old I still get a little jittery when I take her out. What if she starts screaming in a cafe? What if she has a giant poo-bomb and I have forgotten to pack an extra outfit? Or the wipes are all dried out in... Continue reading

Phoebe is becoming so much more alert and curious and is really enjoying walks and exploring new areas of the city. I've had a great time walking around the neighborhood and even braving some of the hills. My legs were killing me after pushing the stroller up four of five... Continue reading

You are never too young to go a-pumpkining so we took little Miss Phoebe to pick out her very first pumpkin. Most of the ones there were bigger than she was! Ok so she looks a little perplexed about pumpkins there but I swear she had a good time! See?!... Continue reading

You know, it's true what they say - Christmas really is so much more fun when you have a child. Even if that child is only 4 months old and has absolutely no idea what is going on. As the first Grandchild it is safe to say that Phoebe was... Continue reading

Now that I am getting little baby Phoebe onto more of a schedule I hope to get the blog back to it's better than regular scheduled programming! And so I present a long overdue version of TILT-a-whirl.... I'm beyond excited for the new Wes Anderson flick "The Grand Budapest Hotel." Check out the trailer below and let me know what you think. Samantha Lee creates beautiful Food Art for her daughters. I'd love to do something like this for Phoebe when she's older. I bet this takes care of picky eaters! I was a diehard lover of Domino Magazine so,... Continue reading
