Writing from Reno-Tahoe where I’m spending a couple days away with my hubby. It’s only my second time away from Naiya since she was born and it was so hard to leave her! Phil convinced me to come with him on this business trip so that we could get a little time away together. In the end, I’m so happy he convinced me! Missing Naiya like crazy but it’s so refreshing to have a quick breather outside of Los Angeles (and to practice not being a #stagefiveclinger. We snapped these photos right before we left of Naiya in the cutest tutu dress and me in one of my favorite scarf dresses. Sharing our outfit details below as well as a few similar looks I’m eyeing at all different price points.
Whether you own your own business or you’re someone who dabbles in social media for fun, in today’s crazy world, we have all become our own brands. Over the past couple of months, I’ve received a bunch of messages from people asking me how to grow their brands on social media from the ground up. Since I’ve enjoyed connecting with them so much individually, today I’m sharing the top 5 ways you too can build your own brand from the ground-up and ultimately become your own boss.
The uber-hot weather finally broke a bit here in LA this week! It’s been in the 60’s and 70’s just in time for Halloween and it’s finally time to break out my favorite “fall” looks. As a native New York stater, fall here in LA will always feel more like summer to me because it never really cools down here (especially by Halloween!) but I have so much more fun layering up because I rarely have to worry about it actually being cold.
When Phil and I were a few weeks away from Naiya’s due date, both of our families wanted to know what our plans were after baby in terms of what kind of help we would need. Between work, moving into our first home and of course being pregnant, I was so overwhelmed at the time, I couldn’t even wrap my head around life after labor. Instead, all I could focus upon was getting through pushing this baby out and then I figured we’d take it from there. Thankfully, my mom, Phil’s mom and his stepmom were all on board to help us out respectively. Having already raised newborns themselves, they definitely knew better than us what we were in for with a new baby and thankfully, they were all on standby to come spend time with us to help out.
