We may be in warmer weather now here in coastal Florida, but not too long ago, both Rockshic mummy and Rockshic baby were rolling in the cold cold airs of downtown Manhattan (and rocking our respective statement vests, as you can see!). This feature is particularly near and dear to... Continue reading

Today’s post comes via Bonita Springs beach in Florida, where my little guy and I hung out for the better part of our lazy Monday afternoon, before mommy had to head back to the airport for NYC (le sigh). It’s been quite a hectic few days, but our quality time... Continue reading

Dress from Zara and necklace from Cartagena (sadly, I think I somehow lost the necklace in transit, but I do love this piece of accessory!). Today’s post comes via a walk through memory-lane (cobblestone paved no less!), from the little medieval city of Bruges. Charming, enchanting, and oh-so-romantic, I’ve nothing... Continue reading

A night of Kiwi-style fine dining. See here for more of Rockshic's adventures in New Zealand. A beautiful, seasonal scallop salad to start (chef's compliments) Happiness translated into the mushroom custard #amaze I highly recommend having a cockatil. My personal favorite was the Lord Rutherford, with Avuá ‘Amburana’ Cachaça, toasted... Continue reading

Apparently, gin used to be called "Madam Geneva" in 18th century England (see here), who knew? Being always on the go, sometimes it’s just nice to grab a drink (and possibly some grub), and skip the elaborate, multi-course meal altogether. Simply put, there’s something to be said about these cozy... Continue reading

Happy weekend! I know I’ve been awfully silent since the madness that was Cyber Monday. In my defense, this mamma-hen has been busy being a snowbird, and flying her entire family down here to Southwest Florida, where we plan to spend the bulk of our winter (well… okay quick caveat...

Aloha! Hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend… we’ve kept it pretty stress-free, a little brunch action here, some dim sum action there, and lots (LOTS) of on-line shopping – mostly for the munchkin, who seems to be on the mend, whoo-hoo!!! Speaking of cyber therapy, I wanted to share... Continue reading

This morning, we drove back into the city and had a lovely brunch with some old friends at Monument Lane, on 103 Greenwich Ave in the West Village (named after General James Wolfe, who died in the pre-Revolutionary Battle of Quebec, who knew?). Verdict? This place is cute cute cute!!!... Continue reading

I won’t lie. The subject of nursing can be an incredibly personal and touchy topic, as it can certainly make your friends/colleagues (not to mention society at large) cringe in pain and discomfort (hello TMI), and yet, in reality – it really is as natural as saying – “I’m going... Continue reading

It has been one tough week for this mamma. Not gonna lie, most days it feels like I’m running a marathon, at the best of times, but this week, somehow, felt especially intense. “Life sucks you’re your kid’s sick,” were hubs’ exact words. I couldn’t agree more. Because munchkin’s not... Continue reading
