Friday Finds

Some Fridays feel like one and some don’t (especially when in quarantine) but today is one of the best kind of Fridays. First off, it’s July and summer is giving us all some much needed life. Also, there are some pretty amazing sales this weekend that we can skip crowds and wearing masks to shop right here. I also had to share a sweet piece about giving compliments that really resonated with me on a few levels, especially as a…

10 Best Swimwear Coverups

10 Best Swimwear Coverups

Part of my love for resort wear is deeply rooted in my distaste for being uncomfortable in high temps. Whenever I’m enjoying downtime and it’s hot out, I’m usually wearing a coverup even if I’m not swimming or going to the beach. Case in point: I was actually on my way to dinner in this pic. There is no better way to beat the heat and boost your mood like throwing on the ultimate resort wear staple. Summer for me…

The Best Hair Mask

The best hair mask

I casually mentioned to my friend the other day that my hair had seen better days. Normally when my hair is short it looks and feels healthier, but between the sun, the sand, and pool, my ends were feeling dehydrated. Since cutting my hair short, I still try to hold off on washing at least every two days, however, my lob requires a bit more styling than my long locks. Rather than air dry every other wash, I feel like…

The Best Fourth Of July Sales To Shop Online

Yumi Kim Tea Time Wrap Dress

I’m ready for some classic summer family time and pretending for a few minutes that it doesn’t feel like the world is ending. My first baby turns FIVE on Saturday, and I cannot believe it. All he asked for is a giant batman cake, a Maui costume and wig, and to the see fireworks. Since all of the local fireworks are cancelled, we might be entering new pyrotechnic territories this weekend. If I can still use my opposable thumbs, I…

Beachy Bohemian Guest Room

Pottery Barn Teen Avalon Bed

I love and appreciate getting feedback from you guys, and a lot of you said, “more pictures of the new house.” Most rooms are not exactly “done” but I did throw together a guest room that I LOVE in anticipation of summer house guests. As you can imagine, some of those hotly awaited arrivals did not make it to my doorstep. I was beyond hyped to have my Chicago bestie stay with me last week, but sadly his flight from…

10 Best Pride Styles

wildfox where am I tee

Before I left the house this morning, my husband said, “are you coming from the village?” I immediately thought he was making a reference to Pride, the birthplace of the Stonewall Protest, since we lived there for nearly a decade together. I was dressed as a walking rainbow. Turns out, he was actually poking fun at my voluminous sleeves, but I took it as a compliment. Here is the dress in question:…

On A Personal Note

On A Personal Note

June 2020 has been a long year. You may have noticed that I paused publishing in this space. To be honest, I was overwhelmed in many ways, and it just did not feel right for me to continue to share my regularly scheduled content. Like many of you, I muted myself and listened, learned, protested, and donated. Most of all, I reflected on what I can do beyond what I have been doing, and took action. I ended up taking…

The Best Racially Diverse Baby And Toddler Books

The Best Racially Inclusive Baby And Toddler Books

Since many of you were so interested in this book and it went out of stock, I wanted to follow up and share some more books that that are racially diverse that my children love, and a couple that I’ve ordered. My daughter is only 15 months old, and her current favorite books are from this Little Feminist series. I love that these books include beautiful images and stories of women of all colors. Every time we finish one, Raquel…

How I Talk To My Children About Race

How I Talk To My Children About Race

I will never forget the first time my blonde son asked me why my skin is brown. “Mama has brown skin because mama is Mexican,” I told him. I explained that people of all different colors, white, brown, and black and everything in between, live alongside one other or together, just like our family. I concluded by telling him that this is a big part of what makes us the United States Of America. He didn’t notice the woman who…
