Just Smile on Rainy Days


Zareena, Leanne and I are all so happy that the weather is finally freshening up. Our long walks could be enjoyable once again, rain or shine! Since it's going to rain the entire week here in NYC, I thought it would be the perfect time to share this post with ya'll.

Rain-boots are so important in a child's life. At least they were for me while growing up. I remember jumping in muddy puddles (Yes, like peppa pig) while my grandparents screamed their lungs out telling me to stop.. ahhh.. good times. 

I guess it's not very appropriate for me as an adult to still do this (although I do, when no one is looking). I want my kids to enjoy these simple moments and cherish them forever. That's why when Shoe Buy reached out to me for a review, I instantly agreed. 

My girls didn't have rain-boots and since school started a few weeks ago, I thought now would be a good time to get them a pair. They're always out with me attending events or simply running errands. Therefore, my girls need the right essentials in order to be comfortable and ready for anything mother nature throws at us :) 

Zareena, Leanne y yo estamos muy contentas de que el clima está finalmente refrescandose. Nuestros largos paseos podrían ser agradable, una vez más, con lluvia o sol! Ya que va a llover toda esta semana aquí en Nueva York, pensé que sería el momento perfecto para compartir este articulo con ustedes.

Botas de lluvia son tan importantes en la vida de un niño. Por lo menos eran para mí mientras crecía. Recuerdo saltar en los charcos de agua mientras mis abuelos gritaban a todo pulmón que parara.. ahhh.. buenos tiempos.

Supongo que no es muy apropiado para mí, como un adulto que todavía hacer esto (aunque lo hago, cuando nadie está mirando). Quiero que mis niñas disfruten de estos momentos simples y los recuerden para siempre. Por eso, cuando Shoe Buy  me contacto para trabajar con ellos, al instante me acepte.

Mis niñas no tenían botas de lluvia y como la escuela comenzó hace unas semanas, pensé que ahora sería un buen momento para conseguir un par para ellas. Siempre están conmigo asistiendo eventos o simplemente haciendo delijencias. Por lo tanto, mis niñas necesitan lo esencial para estar cómodas en  cualquier situación que la madre naturaleza nos lanza :)

White Bell Bottoms


I don't like following rules. Do you?
I'm sure the answer is no. 
Since we're both rebels, let's wear white after Labor day.
No me gusta seguir las reglas. ¿Vos si?
Estoy segura de que la respuesta es no.
Las personas siempre dicen que no se debe usar blanco después del día Laboral.
Pero, ya que somos rebeldes, vamos a vestirnos de blanco hoy.

Creamy Risotto in minutes


Risotto is secretly one of my favorite dishes to indulge on when I'm home alone. It's just so nice to cook something that you enjoy while sipping on a light wine that isn't too bad for you.  I'm using Brancott Estate’s wine as is naturally lighter in both sugar and calories

At the end of cooking this dish, you're all ready to sit on the couch and watch the Travel channel or Food Network, while enjoying this rich and creamy masterpiece you just created.

This risotto recipe can be made in many ways and with many different ingredients. What I love about it is that it's made in 35 minutes and the pressure cooker does the job so you don't have to constantly stand-and-stir. 
My favorite recipe goes as follows..

Jak and Peppar!


I recently came across a really fun and whimsical brand for little girls. I'm so in love (as is Zareena) with every piece in their collection and we wanted to share with you guys. The brand is called Jak and Peppar.

In this post, Zareena is wearing a laced top which came with an under tank. She's also wearing the coolest skirt which came with black leggings to go underneath. Now, tell me that's not trendy!! I swear, I need these two pieces in my size! I'm not kidding, I really want it. Wouldn't it be cool if they had this for mommies too? Like a mommy and me outfit. I would be the first to buy it, wouldn't you?

Anywhooo.. I have only great things to say about Jak and Peppar. The clothing designs are great, decent quality, affordable prices, comfortable and kids love it!   

I have a few more pieces that I'll be showing you during the next few weeks when the weather starts getting nicer and cooler. 

Hope you enjoy this post.
Recientemente encontré una marca muy divertida para niñas. Estoy tan enamorado de cada pieza en su colección y quería compartir con ustedes. La marca se llama Jak and Peppar.

En este post, Zareena lleva una camisa de encaje y una falda que viene con mallas negras para ir por debajo. Un look muy de moda! Te lo juro, yo necesito esto en mi tamaño! No estoy bromeando, yo realmente quiero este look completo. ¿No sería genial si tenían esta para las niñas y mamás también? 

Tengo un par de piezas más que voy a estar mostrando durante las próximas semanas, cuando el clima empieza a ser más fresco.

Espero que disfrutes de este post.

The power of Denim | Levi's Kids

*Consideration was provided by Levi's Kids


Moms absolutely love Levi's Kids Clothing for obvious reasons. All their stuff is made with durable denim that doesn't wash out and it's extremely comfortable. I'm a die-hard fan of Levi's and when the time came for me to purchase denim for my girls, the choice was quite easy.

Event Recap from Kids Rock Show


It's always extremely fun attending the Kids Rock Fashion Show. My daughters look forward to this every year! We saw new and fun styles from our favorite Haddad brands (Levis/ Converse/ Hurley/ Nike/ Jordan). Not only did we enjoy the show but we also got to meet a few awesome individuals who were there supporting this great cause. 

Zareena and Leanne are both wearing Levis and Converse.

I bet you didn't know


Hey guys!
I hope you all had a great Holiday weekend.
I'm sorry for being MIA these past few days, I swear I have good reasons! With school and fashion week approaching, my schedule is total chaos! & to top it all off, my husband has a dislocated shoulder which requires me to do everything for him!
