Sharing our pictures from Disney World! It was a quick getaway for 5 days, but it was so much fun. Lucas LOVES Mickey Mouse so much so it was so great to see his face when he met Mickey Mouse. While we were on line he was smiling so much and then we got up close to Mickey he got so shy, it was so cute. He didn’t cry meeting any of the characters, we met Mickey, Goofy, Donald and then some characters throughout the parks like Snow White & Jasmine. Disney / Orlando is so big, I feel like you need weeks in Orlando to see everything. We can’t wait to go back.

Check out our first ever Travel Diary / Vlog down below. Any Vlogging tips would be greatly appreciated. I did an overlay with music because I felt like we would be just too boring without it, but let me know any good tips you may have!

Sneakers: Nike / Sweater: Target / Leggings: Express / Jacket:White House Black Market

Happy Tuesday loves!! Today I am sharing an Athleisure look. I am actually not typically a sneaker fan unless I am working out, I am more of a ballet flats kind of girl for casual style or running around, but I am loving how some girls do the Athleisure look and wanted to try it out. We are heading to Disney this week, and I will be wearing these sneakers probably the entire vacation. I just purchased them and they are so comfy. Which is great because I will be chasing a 17 month old around for the next few days, going to need the comfiest of sneaks. The great thing about the Altheisure look is you can style it so many different ways. I especially love how Kendall Jenner styles it. I really love these type of leggings with the look, but you can wear jeans, regular leggings, & so many other different ways.

Check out how my friends, Walking in Memphis in High Heels & The Fashion Canvas both wear their Athleisure look.

Hope you guys are having a great week. We are getting ready for our trip over here.

Hi Guys! I have been wanting to do a nursery tour for awhile, and since this past weekend it was literally 3 degrees in NYC, I thought perfect time to do indoor pictures.

I love Lucas’s nursery because it is the only completely “done” room in the house in regards to furniture, pictures, etc… One thing I am thinking of adding is more shelves or a mini book case because we love reading to Lucas and he loves to bring us books. Who knew he would know his favorite books at 17 months old? He is too adorable.

When we were planning his nursery I went for a “animals in the sky” feel. It was a montage of a ton of nursery’s I loved online, my inspiration came from Restoration Hardware Kids, Pottery Barn Kids & then different blogger moms. I took a bit of what I liked in each and then combined into my own. Hope you guys enjoy, and below is the list of products.

Blizzard 2016

Did you guys get a lot of snow this weekend? We got over 15 inches of snow here. There was even a travel ban in NYC on Saturday, not like we were going to venture out, but that is how serious it got in NYC.

blizzard2016_1 blizzard2016_3

We watched a lot of movies and a lot of bubble guppies with Lucas and stayed warm. On Sunday we decided to venture to our backyard and play with the snow. Tina, our yellow lab, LOVES the snow!!! She goes crazy and loves to play fetch and tries and find the tennis ball we play with her.

Lucas on the other hand, was not into the snow. He kept ripping off his mittens, but then would cry because his hands were cold and then would cry when we tried to put the mittens back on. I am trying to find a one piece snow suit in his size with attached mittens so we are prepared and hopefully that will work for the next snow fall.

Jacket:  DKNY  / Snow Boots: Here but not many left similar here and here

So last year I went through a few snow boots, I got some cheap ones from Kohls but they did not last the winter season at all, I had to throw them out and my Uggs usually never make it to the end of snow season. So I got these super hard core North Face snow boots. We usually have rough winters, and yesterday was my first day using them. They kept my feet so warm and dry, I like them so far. The real test is the end of this season but I was able to walk around easily, keep my feet dry and they are stylish. I was not into having snow boots with fur right now, so thought they went with the current look I was going for.

How did you guys survive the Blizzard? Any snow boots to recommend that you love? Also I am looking into a new pair of stylish sneakers, if you have any recommendations please let me know.

Hi Guys! Hope everyone had a wonderful New Years. I am going to be sharing my New Year’s resolutions / goals on the blog later this week. But wanted to share the final pictures from our city day right before the Holidays started. We walked up Fifth Avenue and saw so many beautiful window displays with holiday decor. My favorite are always Tiffany’s & Bergdorf Goodman. We have been doing this every year for a few years now, skipping last year because Lucas was so tiny. So glad we can continue the traditions this year.

Hope everyone is getting ready to have a wonderful week back at work. We are still in relaxation mode here, but ready to start this 2016 off right.

Holiday Manhattan Day

Sharing some more of our pictures from a few weekends ago when we headed into the city to do all things holiday. After our stop at Grand Central Station we headed over to Bryant Park. We walked around the shops, ate some churros (I ate them too fast and couldn’t snap a pic) but they were delicious and had chocolate covered all over them. Then we got some Mac n’ Cheese (overpriced and not that good) and ate by the ice skaters. Lucas is too young to ice skate, so we just watched and walked around the park. Then we headed up Fifth Avenue and stopped by the tree at Rockefeller Center. Seriously, I am loving our family picture by the tree. I wish Lucas was looking a bit more at the camera, but taking pictures with a 15 months old, this is the best you are going to get. We continued up Fifth Avenue to see the windows at all the stores, but will be sharing those tomorrow.

Happy New Years Eve! Hope everyone is getting ready for a wonderful night of celebrating. We are staying in and watching movies and having some champagne. Enjoy! Xoxo

Grand Central Station – Train Exhibit

The weekend before Christmas we headed into the city and had such a fun Christmas filled day. Our first stop was Grand Central Station to see the train exhibit. Lucas loved the trains, but he is in a stage right now where he is obsessed with “big kids” so he was more interested in following and playing with the big kids haha. I am always in awe whenever we go to Grand Central and see the ceiling there, it is so beautiful and my favorite shade of blue. Kind of reminds me a bit of the Tiffany blue. Hope everyone is getting ready for a wonderful New Years, we are planning on staying in and relaxing as family. Xoxo

The weekend before Christmas we got into the Christmas spirit and did all Christmas things around New York City. One thing we did was go see the lights in Dyker Heights Brooklyn. We have been seeing the lights at these houses for years now. They go allllll out. One house even had a DJ, most houses have Santas, and over the top lights. One house even had an Elmo and we were able to get a picture with him. We are so happy that Lucas is a bit older now so we can start to take him to these things for him to enjoy.

Christmas Cards

Happy Holidays!! I hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday and is getting ready to celebrate a wonderful New Years. I wanted to share some of our pictures we used for our Holiday cards. This little boy is such an angel and I love his personality so much. Lucas got more toys that this house can hold for Christmas, but we are so lucky he has so many people that love him and want to spoil him.

I am wearing my favorite holiday look in these photos that I shared on my blog a few weeks ago. Hope everyone is enjoying this wonderful time. What are your New Years plans? We are going to just stay in and celebrate at home as a little family. Nice & relaxing.

Hey guys! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Sharing this from a few weeks ago when we went to the Queens Zoo. It was so much fun. Lucas loved all the animals, and it was an amazing fall day. I am wearing my favorite J Crew sweater I have been wearing non stop. It has been extra warm here in NY so I haven’t been wearing the sweater that much, but it is supposed to get colder this weekend, so I may be bringing it back out. Is everyone getting ready for the holidays??
