Snow blizzard outside my office windows #nyc #stormwinds #Juno Some sweet treats from Roni-Sue Chocolates to get me through the Snow Storm! With butter-crunch bookies, walnut snowballs, flour-less walnut brownies, banana nut muffin, and super fudgy brownies. #noms So, I’ve been back in Manhattan for less than a week… and...

Happy Saturday! So it’s been one hectic week, as usual – but this mamma is staying put in NYC for a change, while hubs flew down to Florida to be with the Nuke (miss them!!). Both work and other engagements precluded me from joining them, but in the meantime, I... Continue reading

You may have seen me mention this before, but ever since I’ve had a baby boy – this mamma stylist is very much into male fashion, and you know that I never mind a little tie action here and there for the little guy. Which brings me to the topic... Continue reading

One of the (many) perks of flying back and forth between NYC and Southwest Florida is that I get to (still) enjoy some one-on-one time with friends during the work-week, and satisfy my tummy cravings. Case in point – last week I got to catch up with a fellow mommy... Continue reading

This afternoon I took the little Nuke out for an artsy-inspired outing. We’ve been cooped up indoors for far too much of this long weekend – largely because mamma’s been busy on her laptop and conference calls for the better part of her time here. However, with the weather so... Continue reading

One thing that I do love doing is visiting the local farmer's market of places I go to... See recent post in the Catskills. There's nothing better than visiting the Farmer's market in flip flops and nice weather.... It's just not the same in the winter time. One of my... Continue reading

Right before heading to Miami, I went to the Peninsula Hotel spa to get a much-needed haircut. The new salon, Vu Hair (by Vu Nguyen), occupies the fabulous space upstairs at the Peninsula with a view, and I got the royal treatment there, replete with Jasmine tea and champs, lots... Continue reading

All I have to say is… TGIF! This mamma’s been mucho, mucho busy – think two flights in just under three days kind of nutso (and one where I’d mistakenly booked my return for the same day as my arrival. Ooops). What can I say, that’s just how we roll... Continue reading

Today officially marks the first week of 2015, and I for one, am still not ready to bid adieu to the holidays. It’s so difficult to imagine that both Christmas and New Years are a thing of the past, but really, just a few days ago! In the spirit of... Continue reading

Lazy hammock days at the Mondrian South Beach Happy New Year! It’s officially the 2nd of January, and our week-long excursion to Miami has sadly come to a close. That said, as exhausting as it was (hello 6am wake-ups!) – it was an absolute blast, to be able to spend... Continue reading

Happy Sunday! I can’t believe that the weekend is over, and Monday is just around the corner! Though this time around, hubs and I are on holiday (whoo-hoo!!), and about to join our dear friends in Miami, where we’ll be shacked up at the Mondrian South Beach for the next... Continue reading

Christmas hangs at the Waterside Shops, one of my favorite retail therapy destinations in Naples. It’s Christmas Eve, and this mamma is typing away yet again on a plane (thank goodness for in-flight wi-fi!). I’ve had to deal with a multi-hour delay, but just the very thought that I’ll be...

Hola from downtown NYC! I flew back yesterday, though planning on heading back tomorrow afternoon – just in time for Christmas Eve!! (fingers crossed that JFK won’t be too chaotic – airport travel the day before Christmas is always a bit unsettling for me). These photos were taken from our... Continue reading

Check out me wearing Glamourmom, a little over a year ago here. What a difference!! Kisses from the munchkin are the best kind! ♥♥♥ 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... 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

Entering our suite at the Viceroy Riviera Maya Happy Saturday! As we nearing the end of November, and as the weather becomes increasingly more frigid in NYC (our one excursion of the day being brunch at Monument Lane), I can’t help but sigh and reminisce over my recent trip to... 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

In keeping with tradition... a lake-side stroll with my latte in hand (also seen here and here). Mamma's wearing: coat by Dolce Vita (last featured here), Scarf from Laos, and fuzzy/comfy boots from New Zealand, Sweater from Nolan (last seen here). Gobble gobble! The bestest (and super easy!) turkey recipe... Continue reading

As we’re gearing up for the big Turkey day tomorrow, and as I’m finally finding a moment to stop and think a bit, I have to say that I am most grateful for the family time we’ve had together in the Berkshires (see last post here on our recent stay... 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
