36 Hours in New Orleans

Wow, New Orleans. You never cease to amaze me. You have always been the best “foodie” destination in the USA since ever. After have just spent 36 hours in New Orleans, we did not have a bad meal. The Big Easy never disappoints. The reason for my visit was to attend my Alma Mater, Tulane University for our reunion. It was so great to see all my friends after many years, and New Orleans will always hold a close place in my heart. of course, some of us changed, and so did the school. But some things stayed the same. The pastel pink streets, debaucherous groups of roaming travelers, jazz music flowing endlessly from every bar, and the kind of oppressive sticky heat that forces you to... Read More

Cult Beauty Favorite

My skincare routine for most of my adult life used to be pretty simple. On the daily, I rotated between face wash, toner, and moisturizer with the occasional mask thrown in once a week. During pregnancy and into motherhood, my hormones shifted many times over and my skin was really taking its toll. In other words, I was stressed trying to do it all, therefore my skincare regime required more tender-loving care. My skin is mostly a healthy combination oily to dry, but mostly on the dry side. But over the past year, with a mix of diet, lifestyle change, and and a lot of self-care, I’ve finally developed a verified routine. And my skin thanks me for it. All I wanted was glowing skin. Now with... Read More

Timeless Style, Fall Version

This past weekend I headed to the Denim Days Festival in NYC where all the top trends in denim washes, makes, fabrications, and styles were on full display. As I was wandering about the booths, and observing all the trends, I realized that the denim that I wore in the 1980’s were back in full swing. I had an inkling that denim styles never die, but rather hide by the wayside until they are back “in” again. Hence why all things vintage clothing were the most popular booths at the fair. The old stuff is the good stuff. This is true for all fashion today. With the resurgence of padded shoulders, sequins!, slip dresses and oversize coats, we don’t know where to turn.  Maybe it’s...

White For Summer’s End

September is officially here, and summer is on its way out. Similarly, this month marks a lot of things for me. My birthday was September 9th. Our wedding anniversary is this week. It’s very much a month of love. A love for family, and fresh starts. It’s also a month of getting organized, hello The Container Store. Once I am organized, doors open for a world of creativity. I always give myself  time to adjust to all these changes. Additionally, September marks the season to story tell, and enjoy the peacefulness, yet fleeting moments of the season. In terms of what I wear, I love wearing white for summer’s end, this transitional season. Wearing white reminds us to embrace the days that are filled with light. Now and into the... Read More
