As promised, here is my gift guide for kids!! It has a good mix of toys you both will love, books with beautiful messages, fun fashion finds and just cute stuff! Right now, Sonny is in the “PLAY WITH ME!” phase, so I chose gifts that we both could enjoy! The stars on his ceiling are the best art project for you ever! So therapeutic. Hopefully these ideas will help you find those last minute gifts you need for the kids in your life! I promise they will love any of this! Well, maybe not the clothes, but, everything else.
So a few weeks ago I was venting to you about how nervous I was to host my first Thanksgiving. I wanted it to be everything my family is used to sprinkled with a little bit of newness. We started the day with a Turkey Trot in the Pacific Palisades. I have to be honest, Timmy and I got in a fight that morning on our way to the Trot because he suggested we start dinner at 4pm.
This year, Thanksgiving is extra exciting for Timmy, Sonny and I, because we are hosting at our house for the first time! My mom is getting construction done on her house (the house my siblings and I grew up in!!), so we volunteered to host. We have decided to do a potluck style Thanksgiving because I CANNOT cook on my own for 12 people.
With a shared appreciation for good taste and fine living, creative-minded cousins Jeanne Chan and Gloria Wong Tritasavit co-founded Harlow & Grey, a line of chic and modern disposable tableware, to make entertaining both easy and elevated. The company was founded on the belief that high style and good design should be accessible to anyone who can dream it. Today, Gloria (co-founder, creative director and a mother of 3) is sharing a few useful tips to throwing your child’s first birthday party.
More home updates coming your way! This time, it’s about one of my favorite spaces in the house… our backyard!
I’ve mentioned this a couple times, but throughout my home renovation journey I’ve been working with Marie Flanigan. Marie and I met over Instagram almost a year ago, and she was interested in helping me with some projects for our new house.

Cinco de Mayo is officially here and there’s no better way to celebrate the day than with a little fiesta! This year, Timmy and I are going to be hosting some friends and having a little get together! Whenever we’re having company over, my favorite part of hosting is decorating, creating the ambience and making a special cocktail! Of course, on Cinco de Mayo, no party is complete without a yummy margarita. To make the classic cocktail, I partnered with Cointreau (the crystal clear orange liqueur) and mixed up something soooooo good — The Original Margarita.
I know this Gift Guide is a little late but between packing the whole family for our upcoming trip to Florida and overseeing the renovations in our home, on top of everything else, time got away from me! I rounded up some of my favorite gifts — almost all of them are under $100 AND can still be delivered in time for the holidays!
Just because you are expecting or breastfeeding doesn’t mean you shouldn’t enjoy a delicious drink! In fact, you have even more reason to stay hydrated. While pregnant and now while nursing, I’ve done my best to drink the recommended 8-10 glasses of water per day.
