Some thoughts on Mother’s Day

May 14, 2017

Motherhood for me is a series of mistakes and triumphs, lessons and growth. All the while giving myself and my kids grace! It is indeed the steepest learning curve and the greatest blessing. For example, it may sound silly, but there was a time I was upset I couldn’t attend golden hour photo shoots, the timing didn’t work with my kids or their schedules (hello witching hours!) However, I was able to step back, accept my responsibilities at home only to…

Nordstrom Rack Faves

May 8, 2017

ruffle blouse :: flare jeans :: red sandals similar and similar :: gold earrings ::   Nordstrom Rack has beautiful essentials and many of my favorite brands at a discount. Think ruffles, gold earrings, flare jeans, and chic sandals. I love that this red ruffle blouse can be dressed up or down with white jeans or white pants. Options are key when my Monday often requires a blouse to transition from school drop-off to meetings to date night. Thankfully, Nordstrom Rack is a one-stop-shop for cute…

May 5, 2017

:: my romper :: flats :: gold flatware :: white tablecloth  :: Photo’s by Tasha We met up with our friends for a fun Cinco de Mayo party, think lots of Fanta, fresh guac, Corona and freshly squeezed lime. Did I mention fresh guac? We had pollo asado and carne asada, salsa, and were too full of fresh guacamole to entertain the thought of having dessert. I included the guacamole recipe below. All in all, it was a beautiful warm night of our littles…

duvet cover :: pillows gold  navy :: lamps :: sign :: headboard similar :: faux fur throw :: mug :: Los Angeles Sign :: After we moved, our room was the last to get some decorating love.

Little B’s Smoothie Recipe

April 7, 2017

  Foodie Friday is back!! Like most things in life, something that started as a fun idea is now a full-blown ritual. As in, don’t even think about changing any thing up or bad things are going to happen. It’s pretty simple actually. After we drop off the kids at school, Brooks and I come back home and make smoothies. There it is. Quite honestly, I usually go through the mail and email while he begs and begs until I help him…

Casual with Abercrombie + Fitch

March 3, 2017

While it may seem like Abercrombie + Fitch is catering more to the younger set (think tweens and teens), a recent shopping trip there was an eye-opener. Abercrombie + Fitch has stepped it up and I’m loving all the colors, enviable basics, and great classic styles that made it so popular in the first place. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll notice I’ve been wearing this trench coat on repeat. Thankfully, this taupe beauty happened to arrive at my doorstep during…

This is Family – Santa Monica

February 23, 2017

Photographer Justin Coit reached out to me with an idea.  He explained he was doing a photographic collection featuring families.  Our family caught his eye.  Of course we took him up on his idea.  The intent of the collection was to capture our family as we are.  That made me a bit nervous.  (Our Christmas card is never a perfectly posed picture, if you know what I mean) Behind the scenes is typically more crazy than what I see as…
