When it comes to your baby’s room, it may seem to be the easiest room to decorate. There are, after all few design opinions coming from the tiny occupant, and as the parent, you get to design the room to your exact specifications. While for many, this ensures a no-brainer,... Continue reading

My eyes perk up whenever I see the possibility of using a new highly nutritious seed in our diet. This time it’s chia seeds. Good for the body and brain, these teeny tiny seeds pack in the fiber, loads of nutrients, protein, calcium, antioxidants and omega-3s. One of their qualities... Continue reading

If you have good clothes that you want to sell, let me tell you about my experience with thredUP. It’s like eBay but done with VIP services. In a nutshell, you send in a bag of your used clothes, the approved items get photographed, uploaded on their site, and if... Continue reading

Our brand new throw pillows! Here you go. You’re welcome! What am I talking about? We hate the throw pillows that came with our sofa. We love our sofa. Hate the pillows. They are mean little things with pokey quills popping out all over. You can’t see them and only... Continue reading

I have a friend in the fashion industry who designs accessories for big-name brands. She never buys clothes at retail because she knows better; namely the big mark ups. It does give you pause if you think a full-priced item at $200 might have cost $25 to make. Have you... Continue reading

What happens when you want to open an affordable chic hotel in Paris but have a small design budget? A lot of DIY and creativity come together for a bohemian and hip boutique hotel. The next time you’re in Paris, search out Hotel Henriette just south of the Seine in... Continue reading

No, this isn’t Zoe and I! This is from Casey Leigh Wiegand, who I follow on Instagram. Her images are pretty dreamy. They really have a sense of calm. She had been playing around with different kinds of braids and posted this and this one on Instagram. If I ever... Continue reading

If you haven’t been to Ikea lately, you must see their new Paper Shop collection. Just when you didn't think Ikea could best themselves any more than they have, they've done it again. I am a paper girl (read: Filofax, pencils and stickies are my thing), and I’m obsessed with... Continue reading

People used to say to me, “Don’t you remember last winter (2013)? It was one of the worse winters we’ve had.” As hard as I try, I don’t remember. That’s because I was never forced to step out in inclement weather with my 1.5 year old. Both of us shielded... Continue reading

Hello? Hi there! It’s been a long while, and I’ve so, so missed writing. I hadn’t had the time to focus on writing, since my last post on September 11. After some time freelancing, I landed a fantabulous role as the design editor at This Old House magazine. It’s been... Continue reading

I didn't read all 200-something reviews on the Slimpack but it's hard to believe my size 7 foot is different from anyone else's size 7 foot! Last winter, I ordered the Joan of Arctic in a 6.5 after reading that the boot ran big. It was too small but I... Continue reading

Nothing like an email alert from JetBlue 3am the morning of a family flight bound for a vacation in Florida. A big storm was threatening, and the airline suggested we change our flights because of possible delays and cancellations. We decided to head to the airport anyway. A Car Service... Continue reading

I’m a Starbucks poser because I don’t really need coffee. It’s a luxury for me, a perk, a treat maybe once a month because it’s yummy. I’ve been known to walk into Starbucks and ask for a “small.” I’ve had trouble fitting into their culture. When I stand in line,... Continue reading

I'm always chomping on the bit to see what comes out next in Ikea's collection. Their global design team usually makes me say the following things: “That reminds me of that XX antique I once saw,” or “…that piece of furniture comes in all those colors?” or “I can get... Continue reading

{ } Café Katja – Their Emmentaler Sausage dish is accompanied by savoy cabbage and quark dumplings. I felt certain I wouldn’t have room for dessert. To my surprise, it was not only the lightest cheese sausage I’ve ever had the pleasure of consuming but I had the stamina to... Continue reading

I recently came across a most beautiful idea that took place last year. It was the brainchild of Kinfolk Magazine, which celebrates the simplicity of good food and good company seen through gorgeous photography. The idea was a Flower Potluck, an event they hosted in 22 cities and towns. A... Continue reading

There was a time when the mention of New York City inspired fear in the hearts of many. And if not fear, then at least caution, where every New Yorker wore their street-smarts like a badge of pride. Fast forward to now, we've gotten soft! Can someone explain how Lyft... Continue reading

You rock that head scarf, baby! Don’t try to climb out of your crib yet. I’d stay in there, and enjoy that awesome bohemian vibe. Eschewing bunny posters for vintage art and a seemingly dismantled pendant lamp, I love the cool ease. {Photo via thewiegands} The dusty rose shaggy pillows... Continue reading

Here I am. No make-up, no filters and no Photoshop. I’m participating in #rawbeautytalks. The message: change the beauty conversation and love the raw you. There are a handful of beauty memories that have stuck with me throughout my life. Years ago, in my 30s, I wasn’t wearing much make-up,... Continue reading

Nineteenth century portraits, we’ve all seen them: black and white, nobody ever smiling, upright postures and clothes you could analyze for hours. I found the whimsical, Tim Burton-esque, children’s version at the Hester Street Fair. So colorful, they avoid being cutesy with their gothic and quirky characteristics, which I love....

Dumbo is one of our favorite destinations in Brooklyn. We spent the day with another family whose daughter is the same age as Zoe. With two toddlers, things can unravel very quickly if a plan isn’t in place. This was our itinerary: { } Met at 2pm (after naps) {... Continue reading

Happy Friday! When I was pregnant with Zoe, I began noticing parents congregating and socializing in our grassy courtyard. They would have large picnic spreads, adults chatting, kids cavorting and having fun. I felt a little intimidated. Did I have to make new friends all over again so that Zoe... Continue reading

Hand to heart, I found the best little book in the world. I promise! Do you love flea markets? And when you travel, do you research whether there are any antique malls nearby? {Hello, friend!} Then you must pick up Pamela Keech’s The Best Flea, Antique, Vintage, and New-Style Markets...

Happy Friday! Here’s a quote I read today, “Fashion is what you buy. Style is what you do with it.” I’ve believed this ever since I was old enough to earn my own money at 14, and something I still feel to the core. I’m not being a drama queen.... Continue reading

When days are hectic and you’re living under the daily strain of keeping it all together, sometimes not enough thank-yous are said in our household. Since Zoe can say ‘Welcome’ or ‘come’ but not ‘thank you’ yet, I guess I’m the one who’s being deficient in the appreciation-expression department! So... Continue reading
