winter-to-spring transitional coat

Hey Ladies

Spring is right around the corner ( March 20th to be exact). With warmer weather peeking through here and there i am so ready to bust out all my spring clothes. However, it’s still really chilly here in NYC.  One day its sunny and warm and you’re walking out with just a light cardigan and the next day its freezing and all you want to do is wear your beanie curled up by the fire. I am more than often starring at my closet lately, unsure of what works best at this unpredictable time of year. What i can always count on, is my camel coat! I have worn it in the fall and i wear it now all the time. Its the perfect winter-to-spring transitional piece that you can easily wear with any outfit. I also love the nutural color which makes it easy to pair with other pieces like a floral dress for warmer days or chunky knit for when its back to being chilly. View Post

Spring handbags

Hey Ladies

Its March!!! can you tell how excited i am?? First of all it means the start of spring and second, march is my birthday month! Plus a new season means some new accessories no? I have spared you the hassle of browsing through the internet and i rounded up the hottest handbags of the season for under 50$! A few of my favorites are this red circle bag from Topshop which also comes in yellow and white, and this small structured straw bag. Also, can we just take a moment and swoon over these gorgeous pastel colors? A little birdy told me it’s going to be a season full of blush pink, yellow and light purple. Yasss.  View Post

Valentines day

Hey Ladies

If you give me any reasons to celebrate love, i will take it. Who does not love a day dedicated to all things pink, red and romantic?! Some people might think Valentine’s day is cheesy and overrated, but i say, why not?! It is so cute when grown-ups get to be all sweet and romantic, going out of their way to celebrate each other. I remember the first year of marriage when valentines day came around i went out and bought balloons from a store around the corner, i then made a big breakfast and decorated the whole house with rose petals. (call me a hopeless romantic, i will take it ;)) I was standing by the door waiting for my husband to come home, and he arrived with the exact same balloons from the store i bought mine!! We burst out laughing, and it was just such a cute moment:) Besides, you know how much i love all things sparkly, pink and flirty. So go treat yourself to something pretty this Valentine’s day!

how to practice self-care

Hey Ladies

They Say: Self-care isn’t selfish! And i couldn’t agree more! Since becoming a mom of two i barely have time for myself, wait let me rephrase this, i have NO time for myself. However, one month after having my second baby i felt completely depleted and run down. I needed to take a shortstop and really evaluate how i am going to take care of myself, since if i don’t i cant keep on giving to my children, home and spouse. Therefore, i took it upon myself to carve out some special time for myself in order to recharge, refocus and chill out. Here are some of the ways to practice self-care. View Post
