7 Things I Wish I Knew Before Becoming Pregnant

As some of you may or may not know if you follow me on social media, my husband and I are expecting our first baby due in April of  next year. We were very fortunate to have gotten pregnant so quickly and needless to say it was a bit of a surprise. As much as I would like to think, I was not mentally prepared for what was to come and I don’t think many first time mama’s are. Simply...

Never Lose Your Favorite Items Again! feat. Tile

Have you ever lost something so important to you that you thought your world might end? I have definitely been there and now with pregnancy/mommy brain I feel like it happens more often than not. Just this morning I couldn’t find my flash drive with important photos on it. I searched around the house and of course nowhere to be found. Okay that is besides the point but you get the picture. Losing items happens to all of us more...

Night At The Museum

   Ale and I recently had the pleasure of attending the Exploratorium After Dark Series at San Francisco’s Exploratorium Museum (check out some awesome posts on social media by searching #exploafterdark). We have been meaning to check out this special Thursday night exhibit and haven’t had the chance until this past Thursday. Let me tell you it is quite amazing! I have spent many afternoons at the Exploratorium Museum with the little one I previously nannied for and have  never...

The Third Piece

So as many of you may or may not know I have a slight obsession with vintage clothing & athleisure wear. There isn’t a time where I am not in something comfy (even at work). My life revolves around it! I wanted to show y’all a quick an easy outfit idea using the “third piece” rule. If you aren’t familiar with the “third piece” rule it esentially adds something extra to an otherwise drab outfit, making you look put together & polished....

Casual Valentine’s Day Look with Coton Frais

This weekend the husband and I celebrated our Valentine’s Day early and headed down to Santa Cruz for a weekend away. We kept things pretty low key and casual and I wanted an outfit to reflect that. I chose something that would still be cute and girly enough for the weekend but casual enough for walks on the beach. I am a huge fan of athleisure wear right now so I opted for leggings and my famous black Nike Free. On...

Valentines Day OOTD feat. Pro Flowers

Today’s post comes just in time for Valentines Day. I am usually not one to get glammed up (think jeans, t-shirts and boots/wedges), but today I thought I would throw on this beautiful romper from Charlotte Russe, gorgeous earrings from Nordstrom & Stila liquid matte lipstick and Chanel Chance perfume from Sephora. The whole look was pulled together with soft waves that I pulled back into a twisted half up-do. Definitely romantic and sweet for an evening out with my hubby. Another sweet aspect...

Thankful for You + Black Friday Deals from Small Handmade Shops

As a small business owner I truly feel the importance of each sale I receive around the holidays. It is such a testament to how our country chooses to spend their money and I appreciate it from the bottom of my heart. By shopping small you are not only feeding a family dinner for the week, you are helping pay for bills and ultimately helping a mother stay home with her children. So thank you to everyone who has ever...

Ponchos, Pumpkin Patches + Bell Bottoms

fashion blogger fall

I can never get enough of fall. From the fashion to to the weather and everything in between. This weekend the Hubby and I took the afternoon to explore Half Moon Bay. My must have on our list for the day was to stop at a pumpkin patch (& yes I took happily too the photo opportunity that came along with it). We drove around the area, got lost and took so many amazing photos. Since the weather was nice...

Affordable Fall Fashion

If you know me you know I couldn’t be more thrilled that fall weather has finally arrived here in San Francisco, and with fall weather comes amazing fall fashion. Yesterday we finally had our first chilly/rainy day of fall and I was able to break out my favorite outfits of the season. Right now I am loving how affordable Target’s selection blanket scarves are. I picked up the one I am wearing in their dollar section for $7. They had...
