How to Survive Flying with a Toddler

Being a working mom is extremely difficult and if someone tells you that it’s not, they’re most likely lying to you. I have moments where I’m kicking ass, I’m on top of the world, I’m being the best mom and I’m performing well at work, and then I have other days where I feel like I’m failing at everything. My …

5 Things I Pledge To Teach Zelda

In a world that seems more and more heartbreaking everyday, it's hard not to be overwhelmed and somewhat consumed by the negativity that fills our social media feeds and nightly news. With a divide that seems to only become deeper in our nation with each passing moment and a sensitive judgmental mindset amongst so many, we are scared to voice our …

Get Your Ironing On with Rowenta

We all know that moms generally pull most of the weight when it comes to household chores. It is possible that you have a unicorn husband that eagerly jumps in to help and cleans up after himself, and for that I applaud you. Now for the other 99% of us who generally get stuck with "everything" because it is somehow …

Topknots & Prints

I'm a sucker for coordinating my outfits with Zelda. Usually it happens accidentally, but when shopping for fall this season I have had so much fun finding matching pieces for us. Buru takes the twinning game to a whole new level, with rad pieces for both moms and minis. Be sure to check out the site this …

At the Farmers Market

Zelda’s willingness to try new foods amazes me every day. Nothing is more satisfying than presenting her with a new item and either watching her tiny nose crinkle in disgust or hearing her give a loud exclamation of approval while shaking her head in excitement. Her sensory journey with food kicks into high gear when we go to the Farmers …

Seeing Clearly with LensCrafters

Last year, I made one of the scariest purchases of my life…reading glasses! And what was even scarier was that after my eye exam I concluded that I needed them. Being officially diagnosed as farsighted forced me to get another exam this year to ensure my prescription was still correct. Which lead me to this silver lining… LensCrafters just launched Clarifye, …

We All Scream for Ice Cream!

I wish every afternoon involved ice cream dates with my babe! They may not happen every day, but when they do I make sure I'm fully present. The smile on her face is absolutely priceless when I hand her the cone and I love the aftermath of stickiness when she’s finished. I want her to enjoy every second of being …

Zelda x Farfetch

It’s no secret that we love Farfetch! From Paris, New York, Milan and beyond, this incredible e-commerce site features boutiques from all over the world, all on one site. A few months ago, Farfetch launched a kids section and Zelda and I immediately knew where to get essential pieces for her summer wardrobe. With easy access to so …

Chicago Street Art Guide

Every Saturday Zelda and I have a standing date to shoot a street style session together. We typically only shoot for 10-15 minutes (this is the preferred shoot time when a toddler is directing) and then try out a new brunch spot somewhere nearby afterwards. It doesn't need to be a large production, all you need is a camera and a place …

A Stylish Send Off

If you live in Chicago you’ve probably heard that they are getting ready to tear down the longstanding Discount Mega Mall building in Logan Square. Before that happens, a group of street artists decided to send it out in style by covering it in works of art for the neighborhood to enjoy while it still stands. You know …
