I've always been a jeans and tank/tee kind of gal. When I worked on the unit, I wore scrubs and had no need for business-type attire. So on those weekend days or evenings when I had to dress up, I did so to a T with dresses, skirts, and slacks. Since my professional wardrobe is much smaller than my casual one, I am always looking to add a few signature, trendy pie... Read More »

As I was going through my son's clothing in preparation for the coming school year, I realized that a shift has taken place. When he was younger, I found that he'd grow out of his clothes too quickly, leaving me with items that were worn less than a handful of times. As a vibrant, active, soon-to-be kindergartener, I'm finding that he's wearing his clothes out before ... Read More »

Like most holiday weekends, we're sticking close to home to spend some quality family time together. I love long weekends, particularly when a holiday is involved because I know that shops, restaurants and entertainment venues will often run special sales and deals.

Going to the gym requires forethought and planning, and very often, I'm heading there either before or after an event, activity or errand. To save time, I typically wear my workout clothing to and from the gym, so attire that is comfortable and stylish is a must.

Approximately five years ago, my husband and I were living in a 2 bedroom flat in Edinburgh, Scotland. I was working as a neonatal nurse while my husband picked up freelance work. I would schedule all of my work days together so that we could travel, and very often, we traveled by train or car throughout the UK. I loved going into London to shop and we actually sp...

It's a chilly 50 degrees here in rainy Southern California, reminding me that we're still right in the midst of winter. Despite my longing to lounge around in PJs and drink hot tea all day, things have to get done...things that involve going out...in the rain!
Because our weather is so temperate, I don't really have a lot of winter wardrobe options. On days lik... Read More »

When I was a single, 20-something year old, you'd often find me at the mall...or the outlets...shopping for the latest in fashion trends. While I wasn't extravagant, it wasn't uncommon for me to purchase an outfit or two every month. I can't honestly remember the last time I took a dedicated shopping trip just for myself. Sure, I've purchased items here or there whe... Read More »

Pre-K...I can't believe my son started Pre-K this week. While it's definitely going to be an adjustment for all of us, our hope is that this year will ready our son for the discipline of Kindergarten. While there is no homework (yet), we are striving to establish a schedule and work on being on time. We're working on things like learning to write and sitting still... Read More »

It seems like just a few months ago, I was cleaning out both of my children's drawers, bagging those outfits that no longer fit them to donate to our local Salvation Army. Today I put a shirt on my son that I had just bought not too long ago, only to find that either it shrunk in the wash, or he's outgrown it.
With back to school season here, we're sorting throug... Read More »

As a little girl growing up in LA, I have many fond memories of our family trips to Disneyland. I can remember the excitement of riding Space Mountain with my father, and the wonder as we sailed through the different countries on 'it's a small world.'
