I'm hitting you with a TBT (throwback Thursday) today. This shoot was taken during my time in Ouro Preto, Brazil. By far one of the most beautiful city's I've ever visited. If you remember, the reason of my trip was to work with thee most incredible footwear brands under the Brazilian Footwear umbrella. One of those brands was Cristofoli.

This is my favorite Brazilian brand because of it's amazing quality and comfort.

Caribbean Restaurant in Williamsburg || Pearls

IMG_2288

Over the weekend my family and I visited a Williamsburg Caribbean restaurant for brunch called Pearls. Believe me when I say that finding good authentic, flavorful caribbean restaurants in New York City is a challenge. When ever I hear about a new Caribbean spot opening up, I always give it a try. Especially if people are raving about it! That's how I ended up here at Pearls.

Ready For Memorial Day!

IMG_2397

Memorial Day is coming up and planning for the weekend is always my girls favorite activity. If you still have not bought cute outfits for your kids, this post is for you! 

I recently visited my nearest Children's Place and went berserk! I bought my girls full blown patriotic outfits that would be perfect for Memorial Day weekend or fourth of July. Everything was on super sale! (and still is!). For Leanne I got her a pretty girly dress, headband, sunglasses and bracelets. These bracelets were a little big for Leanne, so she came up with the idea of wearing them as foot bracelets.

babyGap x Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation



babyGap has partnered with Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation for a very special collection benefitting the fight against childhood cancer.

I can't tell you how many people I've met in my life who has lost someone to cancer and/or are battling the disease themselves. It's truly heartbreaking! I lost my mother in-law to lung cancer and know (from my husbands point of view) how difficult is was. I cannot imagine how much more challenging it must be for a child to go through something like this. It is why I love supporting foundations who fight against cancer, raise awareness and money for treatments and cures.

This collection includes a great selection of six tees and onesies with the message "When Life Gives You Lemons.... Make A Lemonade Stand." One hundred percent of the profits from sales of these six pieces will be donated to ALSF to fund the organization's mission of raising money and awareness of childhood cancer causes, primarily for research into new treatments and cures, and to encourage and empower others, especially children, to get involved and make a difference for children with cancer.

The collection launches May 24th, in-stores May 27th, and will be available for only 5 weeks.
Spread the word.
