FEELING RIGHT AT HOME

It’s been four months since our big move from Miami to Brooklyn, and honestly, it feels like I’ve been here longer, almost like I never left. It’s funny how some places instantly feel like home to you. Yes, I’ve lived here before and I always felt like NY was home, but sometimes you visit certain…

A DIFFERENT POINT OF VIEW

Things can look a whole lot different when you change your perspective. We’ve recently been teaching Maya how changing our perspective, or how we look at something a different way, can really transform our thoughts, experiences, and even our outlook. I’ll share an example, which the whole principal can be applied to just about anything….

DECODING DENIM

For many years, I thought that a good pair of jeans were only ‘good’ if they cost over $100. Boy, was I wrong and broke. That’s not to say there are not some quality denim brands out there with fantastic jeans and a hefty price tag. If you love them and are loyal to a…

PINK IS IN THE BUILDING

Pink is POPPIN! Yes, the color of the season is really making head turns and making a statement in the wardrobe department and I’m all here for it! I think a whole lot of loud, fun, and vibrant is much needed on the style menu, considering the year we’ve had, and pink is going to…

CHANGING SEASONS

I’ve been feeling the coming of spring in the last couple of days and I cannot begin to tell you how excited I am for a new season! This is one of the things I love about living in New York- experiencing winter, spring, summer, and fall in all its full glory. I have tired…

RECOVERY ONE YEAR LATER

Nothing is more cliche than the expression, ‘Time flies!’ But there are no truer words because it seems that in a blink of an eye, months and years can pass in a flash. It’s been a year since my tummy tuck surgery and it feels like it happened just mere weeks ago. I recently went…

GREAT EXPECTATIONS

We made it! We’re hanging by scotch tape and safety pins, but we made it out of 2020 and hastily and hesitantly into the arms of 2021. What will it bring? Who the heck knows. The better question is, what will WE bring to it? The word ‘expectations’ comes to mind. I’ve mentioned in the…

WELCOME TO NY…AGAIN

How many times do you read and reread a caption you posted? I don’t do it all the time, but when I really really feel what I’ve written, I do re-read it and let the words and feelings simmer in me. If you conjure strong and powerful emotions, I like to be able to re-live…

RESILIENCE IN 2020

As we get ready to usher in a new month, and a big holiday one to boot, it’s almost instantaneous to feel the excitement and giddiness in the air! For many, holidays mean a time to celebrate, to be with family, to feel renewed and elated of good things to come, especially after the year…

WINTER WHITE MEMO

Well, the weather outside is……pretty much the same if you live in South Florida, but, if you live elsewhere in the country, you’re probably experiencing some variation of fall and/or winter. The good news though, you can pull out that winter white and start rocking those looks festively! Let’s be real- we’re all just eager…
