On and Off | #HappiMess | Delta Faucet


Having a small or big dinner party is no joke! The cleaning, the prepping, the cleaning, the chopping, the cleaning and did I already say the cleaning? A few days ago I visited my husbands aunt's house and she pretty much invited the entire family over! I'm talking over 15 people were there and I kept on asking myself, 'How does she do it?!'. I tend to get really anxious when I'm having 3 people over because I'm a bit of a perfectionist (as most of us are). I have to scrub each and every corner of my bathroom/kitchen, clean all the tomato sauce that Leanne spilled from earlier's lunch and all that oil that sparked out on the cabinets from last nights fried chicken wings. I mean, the house MUST-BE-PERFECT!

NYC Helicopter Tour | Cloud 9 Living

Pier 6, NYC


Happy Monday Everyone! Even though.. there's nothing 'happy' about going back to work, right? So they say! 

Part one of my husband's birthday surprise was taking him to Buvette, remember that? The second part was giving him the opportunity to see New York City like he's never seen it before. As a born and raised New Yorker it never crossed my mind hopping on a helicopter and riding around the city, because, I thought I had seen it all. But boy... was I wrong!

Dita Von Teese New Maternity Line

In the beginning of my pregnancy I remember not being able to find any shops that I liked for maternity wear until my third trimester when I found Destination Maternity. It's truly one of the rare good maternity shops that carries great trendy pieces for expectant moms. They also carry a great selection of known brands like 7 for all mankind, BCBG, French Connection, Nanette Lepore and many more. 

Dita Von Teese is now one of these wonderful designers at Destination Maternity. She just launched her first maternity line, exclusive to Destination Maternity. This caught my attention because this is something I strongly support, mothers looking and feeling good:) Just because you're a mother or are expecting doesn't mean you need to sacrifice being sexy. It's a great feeling when you can find that perfect piece (whether it's a dress, a pair of heels or a wonderfully laced lingerie) you deserve to look good for yourself, pregnant or not, all the time. 

I would like to congratulate a few of my friends (7 to be exact) that are currently expecting. 

Happy Weekend!!
En el principio de mi embarazo recuerdo que no era capaz de encontrar alguna tienda que me gustaba para ropa de maternidad hasta mi tercer trimestre, cuando encontré la tienda Destination Maternity.  Es verdaderamente una de las tiendas de maternidad buenas que tienen piezas de moda para las futuras mamás. También llevan una gran selección de marcas conocidas como BCBG, French Connection, Nanette Lepore y muchos más. 

Dita Von Teese es ahora una de estas maravillosos diseñadoras de Destination Maternity. Ella acaba de lanzar su primera línea de maternidad, exclusivo en Destination Maternity. Esto me llamó la atención, porque esto es algo que apoyo firmemente, las madres que quieren verse bien:) Sólo porque eres una madre o estás esperando un bebe no significa que usted tiene que sacrificar ser sexy. Es una gran sensación cuando encuentras esa pieza perfecta, ya sea un vestido/un par de zapatos de tacón o una ropa interior, usted merece lucir bien para ti misma siempre. 

Me gustaría felicitar a algunas de mis amigas (7 para ser exacta) que actualmente están esperando un bebe. 

Feliz Fin de semana !!

It's Deep | Jigsaw London


Hey guys! I cannot express how happy I am that Autumn has officially started. I am completely obsessed with layering, as you will see soon. I purchased this leather jacket from Zara a few months ago, and if you follow me on Instagram you might remember me posting about it (see here). I thought the color contrast of the light and deep blue would be perfect paired together. This dress is by Jigsaw London, a loyal middle brand offering items which can be dressed up or down. They are essentially a blend of quirky British style that combines urban sophistication with “weekend in the country” chic. The company is based in the UK with over 60 stores.. whaaaatt?!! In the US they have 4 stores sprinkled along the west coast in Beverly Hills, Berkeley, Burlingame and San Francisco. Isn't it fascinating discovering new brands that offer great quality pieces for your everyday use? 

Today is an extra special day for me. I will be meeting one of my all time favorite people in the entire world. Follow my instagram for photos of who it is later today. 

As always, Thank you for stopping by.

The 'it' Two Piece



If you follow me on instagram you might have noticed my obsession with Christina Karin over the years. I've worn her many times in the past (herehere and here). I knew I had to own a piece (or two) from her Fall collection and POW! Here it is! Isn't it stunning? I just can't get enough of her aesthetic and creativity. All her designs are unique and comfortable to wear. Every time I wear her designs I feel like a million bucks, and I rarely say that about any designers.
Si me sigues en instagram te habrás dado cuenta de mi obsesión con Christina Karin a lo largo de los años. Me he puesto sus diseños muchas veces en el pasado (aquí, aquí y aquí). Yo sabía que tenía que poseer un pedazo (o dos) de su colección del Otoño. Aquí lo tienes! Todos sus diseños son únicos y cómodos de usar. Cada vez que me pongo sus diseños me siento como un millón de dólares, y es raro que yo diga eso sobre diseñadores.

Buvette | French Restaurant



In 2009 my family and I traveled to London for the first time to visit relatives. One weekend we decided to take the Eurostar train to Paris as we've only heard amazing things about it. On the train we experienced the best service and best food I've ever had in my life. Only two months ago I discover what we ate (which was killing me for years). It was Brandade,  an emulsion of salted cod fish, olive oil and whipped potatoes. I've been annoying the world and google with questions about it and found out that one of NYC's best French Restaurants was serving this delight. A few days ago I took my husband for brunch as a birthday surprise because if you know us, you know we love anything French-

Buvette, located on 42 Grove St, New York, NY 10014 is one of two restaurants owned by Jody Williams. The other location is in Paris (of course). This NYC gem is one of my favorite places to visit in the West Village for rustic french food. The best seat in the house is at the marble bar. You get to interact with the serveurs and see all that goes on behind the bar. Just to give you a brief description of all that we had.. we ordered Brandade as a starter and sipped on Sancerre wine. Saumon Fume; which was smoked salmon with crème fraîche & capers. CR'Q Forestier which was Roasted mushrooms, gruyère & herbs de provence with an egg on top. & for dessert we had the Apple Tarte tatin.    
En 2009 mi familia y yo viajamos a Londres por primera vez para visitar a familiares. Un fin de semana decidimos tomar el tren Eurostar a París, ya que sólo hemos oído cosas increíbles sobre él. En el tren experimentamos el mejor servicio y la mejor comida que he probado en mi vida. Hace sólo dos meses, descubrí lo que comimos (que me estaba matando durante años). Fue Brandade, una emulsión de bacalao, aceite de oliva y patatas batidas. Descubrí que uno de los mejores restaurantes franceses en Nueva York estaba sirviendo esta delicia. Hace unos días llevé a mi marido para el almuerzo como una sorpresa de cumpleaños porque si nos conoces, sabes que nos encanta cualquier cosa francesa.

Buvette, situado en 42 Grove St, New York, NY 10014 es uno de los dos restaurantes de Jody Williams. El otro esta en París (por supuesto). Esta joya de Nueva York es uno de mis lugares favoritos para visitar en el West Village si quieres alimentos francés rústicos. El mejor asiento de la casa se ​​encuentra en la barra de mármol. Tienes la oportunidad de interactuar con el camareros y ver todo lo que pasa detrás de la barra. Sólo para darle una breve descripción de todo lo que ordenamos .. pedimos Brandade y bebimos en vino de Sancerre. Saumon Fume; que fue salmón ahumado con crema fresca y alcaparras. CR'Q Forestier; que era ongos asado, gruyère y hierbas de provenza con un huevo en la parte superior. Y para postre pedimos Apple Tarte tatin que fue como una torta de manzana.

There's a new fragrance that's taking the world by storm. The new fragrance by GUESS - GUESS Dare.

Chili Chicken Mac-and-Cheese

Today my recipe was featured on Martha Stewart's intsagram page (see below) and I got bombarded by questions about the recipe. The photo was featured as the winner of the #JustOnePot contest. I was so excited after finding out the news because I'm a huge fan of Martha and as the winner I will get a chance to meet her at the launch of her new cookbook, One Pot.

I never gotten the opportunity to post this recipe on here and thought now would probably be a good time. This is such a delicious recipe and very different from your ordinary mac-and-cheese. Hope you guys like it.

Total Time: 40 min
Prep: 25 min
Cook: 15 min
4 servings


Kosher salt
12 ounces elbow macaroni
1 1/4 cups 2% milk
2 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend (8 ounces)
2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken breast (skin removed)
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 bunch scallions, chopped
2 teaspoons chili powder
Freshly ground pepper
1 cup home-made pico de gallo
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
3 cups low-sodium chicken broth

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook as the label directs. Drain, rinse under cold water and return to the pot. Toss with 1/4 cup milk. Top with the cheese and chicken (do not stir).

Meanwhile, melt 1 tablespoon butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the scallions, chili powder, 1 teaspoon salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, 2 minutes. Add half of the pico de gallo. Cook, stirring, until the scallions soften, 2 to 3 minutes.

Reduce the heat to medium. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons butter and melt. Sprinkle in the flour; cook, stirring, until a paste forms, about 1 minute. Gradually stir in the broth and the remaining 1 cup milk. Bring to a simmer; cook, stirring occasionally, until thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 6 minutes.

Add the sauce to the pot with the pasta. Cook over medium heat, stirring, until the cheese melts, about 3 minutes; season with salt and pepper. Top with the remaining 1/2 cup pico de gallo.

Please note: there are many ways of making this recipe. Make it to your liking. If making for kids  only add 1 teaspoon of chili powder.

West Village Stroll



Repeatedly I've mentioned how much I love Autumn, but being able to wear layers during this time of year makes me beyond happy. This past weekend I re-discovered one of my favorite places as a teen, the West Village. This place brought so many memories... good ones of course.

I want to wish a special Happy Birthday to my Mr./photographer. He's a huge part of me and a part of this blog. I love him so much for being awesome. I will be sharing all that we did for his spacial day soon.

En repetidas ocasiones he mencionado lo mucho que amo a el otoño, pero ser capaz de usar capas durante esta época del año me hace más que feliz. Este fin de semana pasado re-descubri uno de mis lugares favoritos en mi adolescencia, el West Village.

Quiero desearle un feliz cumpleaños a mi esposo/fotógrafo. Te quiero mucho!

Hyatt Regency Recap

Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay, MD


We're all entitled to a little R&R (Rest and relaxation). Especially when you're a workaholic who has two full time jobs (blogging + being a mom) and don't really want to travel far. I mean.. Maryland is only about 5 hours away from New York City (driving). My family and I are used to taking 17 hour flights to Bangladesh and 7 hour flights to London, so, 5 hours to paradise isn't too bad.
Todos tenemos derecho a un poco de descanso y relajación. Especialmente cuando eres un adicto al trabajo que tiene dos empleos de tiempo completo (blogera + ser mamá) y realmente no quieres viajar lejos. Quiero decir .. Maryland está a sólo 5 horas de distancia de la ciudad de Nueva York (por carro). Mi familia y yo estamos acostumbrados a tomar 17 horas de vuelo a Bangladesh y 7 horas de viaje a Londres, por lo que, 5 horas para llegar a un paraíso no está tan mal.

Black On Black


I hope all of you guys had an amazing Labor Day Weekend! I know many of you have been waiting for my Hyatt recap & I'm so so sorry for taking this long to post it. There's a ton of photos and I'm trying to create a little video as well. But in the mean time... Hello September!! I visited Beacon NY for the first time during the weekend. It was such a nice little town I loved it. We arrived pretty late and most shops were closed (Sunday close early). We found a cute little restaurant which was the only place opened at 7pm, DogWood. We will be going back and I'll share more photos of the place.

Espero que todos ustedes tuvieron un fin de semana increíble! Sé que muchos de ustedes han estado esperando el resumen de Hyatt y lo siento por tomar tanto tiempo para publicarlo. Hay un montón de fotos y yo estoy tratando de crear un vídeo también (pero es mucho trabajo ahora mismo por la semana de la moda). Pero mientras tanto ... He visitado Beacon NY por primera vez durante el fin de semana. Llegamos bastante tarde y la mayoría de las tiendas estaban cerradas (Domingo cierran temprano). Encontramos un pequeño restaurante, que era el único lugar abierto a las 7 pm. Se llamaba DogWood. Vamos a volver pronto y voy a compartir más fotos del lugar con ustedes.
