It’s National Positive Thinking day in the US on Friday, and today my thoughts are all surrounding the gratitude I have to be a parent to my beautiful young kids! It can be easy to feel down in the dumps with the everyday, but there is always something to show gratitude and be positive about!
With Labor Day, Pre-K back-to-school and having a 2 year-old still at home, happening all at once, it’s enough to make a Momma need a cocktail!
Hey Mammas! Here are some outfits that I picked up for Tudor & Aura for back-to-school with everything from backpacks, graphic tees, jumpsuits and shoes to make your perfect Fall outfits!
Need a discount on your school supplies for the first day of school? I’ve got you covered from sunscreen to lunchboxes to clothes! You can also check out my Amazon store for some awesome favourites my Tudor will be heading back to school with! For you moms, you can check out my other discount codes for some self-care specials just for us…
Follow us around the New York City leg of our summer family vacation in this Guide to NYC with toddlers!
For this year’s summer family holiday, we decided to vacation to Boston, Cape Cod and Nantucket! We’re still on our family vacation as I write this… so I thought I’d do something different! Check back for all the details on our destinations in a Travel Guide coming in a couple weeks…
Now I’m working with a bunch of new brands, I have discount codes for days! I thought it would be good idea to create one central hub for all the codes I have right now for anything you need!
We all know how it is, picky toddlers and healthy eating on vacation don’t match! However, with healthy snacks, healthy fast food options, portion control and responsibility, it is possible.
I was so honoured to be featured as an SMMC-PRENEUR in this month’s SMMC Crier! Having my article ‘A Day on the Smart Train’ published with them back in April was a huge milestone for me, so to have them reach out and ask to feature me again totally made my summer. This side hustle is taking off… a total Mompreneur pinch-me moment!
Rewind to a decade ago, Nicolae and I met at a Boston Young Professionals Networking Event in the city. I think these events were more geared towards mingling rather than actually passing out business cards and being professional… he asked me to go to dinner that night - ha!
Planning a Cape Cod family vacation for this Summer has me looking back at photos of the beaches, things to do and restaurants from our trip last year!
…Yes - it can be done! Picking a great destination and luxury family friendly hotel for your summer holiday makes such a difference. Remember it’s your vacation too, not just for the kids!
Whether you spend your summers swimming at the swimming pool, lake or beach - being up to date on water safety when you have kids is so important!
The Kids’s Kitchen is open at Casa Del Armstrong-Pascu! On the menu today is a yummy healthy homemade veggie pizza made with all organic vegetables!
Nautical Sunday day trips spent down at the yacht club boatyard as a family are one of our favourite things to do in California - we love coastal living activities! Fishing off the dock and running up and down the jetty is always more fun with toddlers!
Thank you to the hosts of private Alt Summit 2019, Palm Springs dinners and parties I was invited to by Delta, Novogratz and BYUtv Dinner Takes All! Also a big thank you to Better Homes & Gardens and the Parker Palm Springs where we stayed! Be sure to see my Design Influencers Conference Blog post I went to in March!
We packed up the Suburban and headed down the I5 to Pasadena where we stayed 2 nights before driving down to Palm Springs!
Time to don our best pastels as we had a family photoshoot for Easter. All about the lilacs, aqua, yellow and pinks this time of year, boys and all!
It’s that time of year again and Spring is officially in the air! Cooking easy Easter Bunny cake recipes with the kids is definitely going to become a new Easter tradition, but hopefully a neater and cleaner tradition is time goes on, haha!
I went to this amazing talk at my paediatricians office on picky toddler eating because my little toddler's have become a lil picky! Then again, their mamma isn’t super fond of veggies either ;)
I’ve been wanting to go to this conference for the past four years but have always either been pregnant or nursing unable to get away for a few days. This was my first time away, EVER, from the kids to do something for myself. It was really nice connecting with other young designers, influencers and brands.
It’s time to fish! Just a quick post to show you guys our coastal living vibes! You can totally do this at any public landing wherever you are.
It’s Valentine’s Day and I decided to throw on some of my favourite love-inspired, pink, red, Tiffany, heart-shaped jewellery (you know, all the stuff that makes us women weak at the knees!) to give some true love to myself this year.
This was my third time to the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum, but only my first time with the kids! When I knew we would be travelling to Oregon, I just knew I had to take them along, just an hour drive south from Portland.
It’s all about the kids in Tiburon! That’s one of the reasons we moved to the suburbs. We moved from the busy South End of Boston where we lived in a Brownstone 5 years ago, where our only outside space were the city parks and the stoop leading to our front door….enter Suburban Jungle!
We finally found the car we wanted in the colour we wanted after a long search, and it was that far away! My husband was set to go on his own, but it seemed like the perfect opportunity its to hop on a plane with the family, and to drive our new car all the way home to make a road trip out of it…
In a time when all kids seem to want to do is play on their iPads, it’s so important to allow them to get creative imaginary play-time with their hands! One of the easiest crafts you can make is with 2 sticks and a string of faux fur material…
In honour of 2019 I thought I'd do a fun twist and I'm bring out some of my favourite vintage watches.. leave it to me to see how many watches I could possibly fit on my wrists, huh! And when that space runs out…
We rang in the New Year’s with Opera Night at Servino’s in Tiburon after loving our tree lighting brunch there a few weeks ago. We were treated to an amazing five-course dinner while we were serenaded by some amazing opera singers walking around the tables….
