In honor of #tbt, and in point of fact – Brangelina’s recent honeymoon in Malta, I couldn’t help but add a few more photos to my digital travelogue. You see, at the start of January 2010, hubs and I had taken a week-long trip to Malta, right after I had... Continue reading

Posing with Dream Sequins, co-founder of Avant Collective. We (three) all have our game face on, and yes -- that's my new Amsterdam Leather... Continue reading

Deviled eggs with sriracha flakes It’s been a while since hubs and I sat down for a proper date night (although last night we managed to swing a late-night meal in the East Village at the Eddy, a MUST do if you haven’t been). Birds & Bubbles, located so ridiculously... Continue reading

My favorite #NYFW collection so far -- Zimmermann SS15 Ready-to-Wear I’ve been keeping my eyes peeled on fashion-week trends worth noting, and I must say – I’m a big fan of the SS15 Zimmermann collection, brought to you by the Australian designers Nicky and Simone Zimmermann. It’s chic, bold, nouveau,... Continue reading

Outside of the Empire Hotel, donning my newly acquired #nyfwready goodies and wearing my Abi Ferrin signature Nikki dress (which you can wear 5 ways!). Love them. Goodies inside the Empire Hotel suite. #eventsuite This busy (and finally recovering mamma) took a break today and headed uptown to the Runway... Continue reading

Last year, 36 weeks pregnant vs. now (just turned 12 months!) So the past few days have been less than festive, as I’ve basically been in hiding in our apartment, trying to get over this awful cold that I’ve gotten saddled with over the long weekend. I suppose all of... Continue reading

In yet another #TBT moment, these photos were taken in January, when the Nuke was just five months! We had endeavored upon a road trip in New Zealand, where we stopped through Rotorua (known for its thermal pools), and then shacked up for a few days at the Solitaire Lodge,... Continue reading

In honor of TBT, I’m sharing with you some photos from our date night at Amanyara in Turks and Caicos, where we stayed at the Tuscany. What more can I say but... “wow.” From the moment I entered the property, I knew that I had stepped upon somewhere special. For... Continue reading

This weekend, we officially celebrated the Nuke turning one! It’s hard to believe that a year has gone by… I still remember, quite vividly in fact, the birth of my baby and the emotional rollercoaster that came with his arrival. I always knew that I wanted to celebrate our son’s... Continue reading

Point Blank, my drink of the moment It’s been a while since I’ve done a restaurant review in Manhattan (not for a lack of eating I might add, but possibly just laziness). In any case, a couple of weeks back (three to be precise), hubs and I did date night... Continue reading

Photos from a business getaway in Dubai (circa 2010). To me this embodies the perfect mix of business and pleasure! Having sat through my fair share of corporate events and visited enough places that accommodate them (see my series on luxe lodgings), I can safely say that hosting a corporate... Continue reading

Greetings from Mexico! My darling friend and I have been shacked up at the Riviera Maya since Friday, relaxing and indulging in some beach-side adventures along the Caribbean coast – think sailing, ziplining, ATV jungle rides, and the like. The only thing we didn’t get to see were Mayan ruins,... Continue reading

Happy Friday! I can’t believe that it’s the first day of August already. In fact, I was just lamenting to a dear friend that this summer seems to be flying by at lightning speed. Nuke turned 11 months last week… and pretty soon, before we know it, he’ll one!!! Eeks.... Continue reading

This post has been high on my mind lately, not least of which is due to my #tbt throwback moment to Turks and Caicos and how I’m absolutely convinced that T+C is one of the loveliest places I’ve ever visited. You see, yours truly have been doing quite a bit... Continue reading

The moment we arrived, I was instantly zen. They even had a high-chair set up outside, ready for us! Mamma's been busy busy busy -- seems like the only time I have to write is when I'm in a moving vehicle of sorts. This is no less true for family... Continue reading

This Saturday, hubs and I headed over the bridge to Dumbo to see an old friend who’s in town for the weekend. She herself is heading onwards to a new voyage of discovery on the West Coast, and thereby leaving her old house, life, and belongings behind. As my friend... Continue reading

So this just happened. My West Coast Bestie and I – in the heart of the valley – drinking rosé, frolicking in an immaculately kept property and pool, under one of the most serene and gorgeous settings in town. Yes, that’s right ladies and gents, I’m referring to my recent... Continue reading

On mamma: Dress by Tory Burch (last seen here in the Berkshires), hat by H&M (last seen in Barbados). On Nuke: onesie by Mini Shatsu (love their stuff!), shorts by Baby Gap, socks by Trumpette. I must say, swnning with bubs beats swanning solo anytime! Today was a rather slow... Continue reading
