Carpool Style + Sleep Depivation

November 19, 2014

I seriously could not stop yawning while taking these photos, I am perpetually sleep deprived. My boy Nikko is still hit or miss with night time sleep. Some nights (rarely) he sleeps nearly through the night until about 4/5am, then comes to my bed for some extra rest. Other nights – LAST NIGHT! – he makes a ton of noise, talks, fusses, gets in my bed around 11pm, rolls around next to me, kicks me, blanket on, blanket off – for hours and hours on end. I never seem to catch up on my sleep.

Here, I am wearing my “go to” comfort carpool/mama uniform, for dropping off and picking up 2 kids at 2 different locations, marketing, laundry, dishes, and blogging 😉  – old old old kitty cut up sweatshirt and leopard tank, H & M polka dot pull on pants, and super comfy Steve Madden wedge booties.

I hope you had a restful night! Wish me luck tonight…

What’s your “go to” comfort uniform??

Mama = Chewbacca

October 27, 2014

My daughter Coco is currently* obsessed with Star Wars Episodes IV-VI. Although, she has chosen to be Queen Amidala for Halloween – due to the gorgeous costumes and natural beauty of Natalie Portman. My son Nikko will be a classic Luke (we sometimes jokingly call him Nik Side-Walker), Husband Tristan will be Darth Vader, and mama, of course – Chewbacca.

mama-bacca-3This mural cracks me up! The best silly Sci-Fi backdrop – located at a gas station in West L.A.

mama-bacca-1I wish I had a crossbow, that would really pull the look together


Somehow, I look more like a sad demon rock god than Chewie…hmm


I love how easy this costume was to throw together! I just ordered up this boys youth size jacket on Amazon, and received it by mail the NEXT DAY! Gotta love Amazon. And, yes – I already had those boots and pants. ‘Cuz, I already kinda am a sad demon rock god – aren’t I? At least in my imagination…

What are you going to be for Halloween? Did you make a costume? Rent? Or buy?

Hooray! Mama’s Night out

Check out that crazy pink wall! I get so excited when I have the opportunity to have a night out! I actually plan what I will wear nearly a week in advance – that’s how excited I get! I jumped (literally) at the chance to wear my new BCBG side peep hole dress (amazing 50% off sale) with the most comfortable Aldo lace booties to see my cousins band play at the House of Blues. I am also wearing the engagement we ring we picked up (8 years ago) at a little shop in Calistoga, California – by T.PLODOWSKI. You can check it out and his other beautiful jewelry HERE.




House of Blues is one of my all time favorite venues. Stay tuned, I will post some of the photos I took that night – maybe tomorrow…

out to work

August 25, 2014




Happy Monday! Im exhausted after a 4 day adventure to Legoland. As soon as we arrived home I had to run off to a photoshoot at the House of Blues to shoot Magnolia Fire.  See the photos here and here. More coming soon. With two kids waking randomly, I had about a total of 4 hours sleep last night…. such is life. Rock on.

Wearing some of my favorite and easy pieces to work; David Meister – Jacket, Old navy – sleevless tee, Zara – pants, Aldo – shoes, SM Pier sunnies $15!!! never pay more that $20 for sunnies! Im always picking up a new pair at random places, like the car wash, The Giving Keys – necklaces were a gift from my husband with my children’s names. Check out an amazing charity and employment opportunity for the homeless. Plus super cool jewelry and more!
