On Life

Weekend 8.27

My kid did *that* teenager thing, plus the best GANNI boots (on sale!!), a not-so-kid-friendly game, ugly-cute shoes & perfume a la Paris 2003.
It's a teenager thing.

Weekend 8.20

A Turkish gulet cruise is the best vacation, plus the Cool Girl style I *will* be copying, throwback barrel jeans, & preparing for fall fashion.
It's the post-vacay blues.

Weekend 8.6

Traveling in London with woke teenagers? Plus the maxi dress I've worn most this vacation, the best sunscreen + my beloved low-rise cargo pants. Let's get into it.
Good grief. Teenagers.

Weekend 7.30

We're finally taking a vacation. Time to learn a new language + try out some new clothes perfect for travel, + what I'm buying during the final days of the NSale.
Wine and cake, what more do you need?

Why Have Kids?

I'm already here, on baby No. 4, having to make do with the consequences. What's the point in asking, "Why have kids?"
I never expected to have more children.
Seriously...can we talk about periods? More specifically, period underwear? At this point in my period underwear “research”, I’ve tried Thinx, Ruby Love, Cora, The Period Company & Uniqlo.
Do they work, how to wash them, and the best pairs for every, uh, flow.
I can be fierce & confident in high-heeled booties + a leather jacket, I can be fun & whimsical in floral cut-out dresses + bright heels, but I think the "moment between the poses" outfit for me, when I'm not "on" is a perfectly broken-in pair of jeans, comfy top + sneaks.
"Not the blog aesthetic, but I had to send you these photos because they are FIRE," my photographer wrote to me before sending over the latest gallery from our shoot. She was right. The pictures were something special. But, there was one picture in particular (edited in black and white) where I'm sitting in my Abercrombie & Fitch Dad Jeans...
Encanto touches on a topic I never expected in a Disney movie set in my homeland of Colombia: forced displacement. Everybody who's dancing to the soundtrack & watching the movie for the 100th time needs to understand this reality.
If you are reading this, chances are you (or your kids) are obsessed with Encanto, and one of your most-listened-to songs has been "We don't talk about Bruno, no, no, no." Or maybe it's, "Pressure like a drip, drip, drip that'll never stop, whoa" — such a triggering song for many of us who grew up feeling like we...
We're always looking for fun, easy ideas for winter date nights, simple ways to make a Friday or Saturday night feel more festive. I'm not always in the mood to hit a restaurant...either it's too cold, we're too tired (a pitch-dark 5PM always feels like midnight to me), or the kids are feeling grumpy about it (restaurants are hit...
Matching pajamas + Dressing up + My Girls....We drank champagne, danced, ate lots of food & laughed until we cried. All. Weekend. Long. It was literally the best birthday I've ever had.
My friends and I have tried to get together for a girls' weekend at least once a year for the past twenty-something years. (Wait, twenty-something?? How is that possible? I still feel like I'm 25...most of the time.) Of course, the pandemic threw a wrench into those plans for a while, so when we were finally able to get...
