Tote Savvy Baby Bag Insert

What to wear in the summer in New York

Summer and simple, that is my current motto.  With a little one now, making outfits easy and lightweight are important.  I want to being able to put together my outfit without standing in my closet for 30 minutes and feeling as though I have nothing to wear.  To solve this, white pants are my new staple since I am not quite fitting into my shorts anymore.  In these rising temps, a floral halter is the best accompaniment.  

I wore this outfit to a get together with my cousin and her friends.  I bought these black sandals at a local shoe store on Steinway and they are now my favorite shoes.  The block heels makes them easy to walk in and they go well with everything.  My next new staple is this large tote.  You will always find me with a tote now.  This enables me to carry all of my little ones essentials and a few toys, of course.  With my Tote Savvy insert, I am able to convert any of my bags to a diaper bag.  It has pockets and compartments to hold everything I need.  This way I am able to carry her items as well as mine in one bag.  They have a mini version for smaller bags as well, which I use in my carry-on when we travel.  This is my simple go to outfit and it works every time!

Rooftop Sunday Funday

Summer faux wrap dress vueve rose rooftop party

Summertime in New York means it's time for rooftop celebrations.  One exceptionally hot weekend, I met my girlfriends on the rooftop of the Arlo hotel.  We basked in the sun while imbibing on copious amounts of champagne.  Sipping chilled Veuve Rose while catching views of the city with friends is a great summer past time.  With the temperatures rising, you want to make sure you also stay hydrated with water and wear clothes that are breathable and light.  That sun can easily get to you quickly especially when you are drinking.  Hats, sunglasses, and sunblock and important items you shouldn't leave home without.
This faux wrap dress from BCBGeneration has summer written all over it.  This sleeveless dress has a keyhole cutout in the back and side slits that make this fun and comfortable.  Little by little, I am getting rid of the baby weight and it is easy for me to feel self conscious in my clothes.  Fortunately, this dress complimented my new size and made me feel comfortable.  It's definitely a process to lose the weight after the baby.  For me, it is important to find clothes that work with the size I currently am and allow me to feel good!

Little Spoon - Baby Food Delivery Service

Little spoon organic baby food delivery service

Little Mama is at the age for solid foods and it has been fun making her food from scratch.  It hasn't been as difficult as I thought it would be, I am able to come home and whip up a batch of pureed peas or sweet potato.  I just do this along with whatever I am cooking for dinner for me and my husband.  On the days when I am busy, he is usually able to make her pureed food for her instead.  But then there are those days, when we both get home and the last thing on our mind is making dinner.  That's when we end up ordering in, but you can't find baby food on any restaurants menu.  This is where Little Spoon comes in to save the day!  This baby food delivery service relieve us from the stress of making sure baby ChloĆ© is fed and fed healthy.    

Little Spoon is a new baby food delivery service that delivers freshly made food to customers on a bi-weekly basis.  Making sure that you are feeding your baby healthy food can be difficult unless you are making it yourself constantly.  Knowing that there is an option to help make life easier for this working mom has been instrumental.  Little Spoon uses fresh foods and a technique called high-pressure processing to lock in the nutrients without having to use additives or preservatives.  This is a better alternative that those jarred baby foods you find in the grocery store that have been there sometimes longer than the age of your baby.  

Little Spoon sends different flavors specific to your baby and they make great combinations as well.  ChloĆ© enjoyed each option that we gave her.  Attached to each container is a small spoon that was actually easier to feed her with than the baby spoons I purchased.  Luckily, she was pleasantly pleased with these and I was very happy with having this as an option for a healthy baby food option.  This delivery service is a great idea and perfect for those who want to know exactly what they are feeding their baby.  My husband and I greatly recommend this delivery service!

7 Charming Sisters - Chandelier Earrings

Prettiest Street in Astoria sunday brunch





7 Charming Sisters chandelier earrings

Statement earrings are everywhere this summer! You can find tassel earrings, drop pompoms to elegant chandelier earrings. I am usually wearing smaller earrings but have taken to this trend, surprisingly. They are extremely fun and pair well with another trend this season, the off the shoulder look. One way to dress up an off the shoulder dress would be to add these chandelier earrings from 7 Charming Sisters. These vintage crystal earrings jazz up my dress.  It takes this dress from brunch party to nighttime cocktails. These are extravagant and gorgeous and everyone will think you paid an outrageous price. They are absolutely beautiful at an incredible price.

In addition to adding charm to an off the shoulder dress, these can easily be worn with a top and jeans or a little black dress.  Versatile and stunning, you can spruce up any summer outfit with these chic and affordable earrings from 7 Charming Sisters.
