    A few weeks back, at the height of strawberry season in New York, we headed out east to Windy Acres Farm, to pick our own strawberries.  Strawberries + blueberries are Jayden’s favorite fruit, so we thought it would be a fun adventure for the whole family. We had originally planned to go on Saturday but the […]

    Being raised in California, by a white mother, I learned at a very young age that the color of your skin does not define who you are.  In my family alone, we are each a different shade, for me as a little girl, that was normal.  Once I hit the age where I started going […]

     Today, I’m (finally) sharing photos from my maternity shoot with Zoe Hiigli Studio.  I always knew I would want to take maternity photos, but wasn’t sure if I wanted to go the artistic or lifestyle route.  I decided on the artistic, mainly because I had so many lifestyle photos for my blog, that I thought […]

  • Denim On Denim + The Perfect Leather Backpack


    Denim on denim is my go to mom-iform (who am I kidding, I’ve been rocking this style, long before I became a mom).  Seriously, I could wear a form of this outfit on repeat, day after day, if laundry was a little easier to get done.  One of my favorite purchases I’ve made within the […]

    I love chambray. I mean, who doesn’t.  There is something about a simple chambray shirt, that makes feeling pulled together, so much easier.  As a new mom, I love chambray even more these days–mainly for how versatile + durable it is. While my tried + true chambray shirts (yes, I have multiples), will always be a […]
