It’s currently 12:42AM and I just got home from an event that I had with Macy’s and Elle Magazine. Rather than washing my face and immediately going to sleep, I wanted to make sure I finalized todays post! After all, I committed to posting Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and the goal is to have the posts up by 7AM. It also makes me incredibly happy that so many of you, like me, still prefer blogs! Thank you for your feedback and as always, for your support. Anyhoo, below are a few links that I’ve been looking forward to sharing:

Plaid Suiting | Happy Friday!

I’ve been so into pant suits, which come to think of, I really should have included in my fall list! I shared this blazer in that post, but this time, wearing it with the matching pants. 

Last month, Downtown Magazine interviewed me and I realized that I never shared the story! We dive into some NYC favorites, raising Nate and blogging. You can check out the story here.

Ways to design your home/office to boost happiness & reduce anxiety.

How gorgeous is this sweater from H&M?

I’m currently reading When Life Gives You Lululemons and really enjoying it! It’s a quick, easy read and perfect after a long day when I need to shut off.

You may have seen me share this calendar on my instastories. Digital calendars are great, but having a calendar on our fridge has been a game changer! Having a daily visual helps us remember family plans, events and most importantly, anything pertaining to Nate (like coverage!)

The truth about parabens – the skincare enemy.

Such a simple way to feel happier in an instant.

How to show, not tell, your value.

Cozy, oversized sweater in a fun color.

Hope you all have the best weekend!

    OMG this plaid suit is AMAZINGGG!! And yay to blogs. I find them so enjoyable and love reading them first thing in the morning before I get my day started! Good to know you love the book When Life Gives you Lemon. I’ve been thinking about reading it!

  • Allie

    I loved when Life Gives You Lululemons! I read it on a plane and couldn’t stop laughing. Such an enjoyable read! I just finished The Hating Game and that’s another fun and funny read if you’re wondering what to pick up next.

    I’m so, so happy that you’re going to up your blog posts! I LIVE for your blog. Insta is nice, but those are just photos and I want more!

    I’d love to hear more about your fashion process…meaning why you choose a piece, what you look for in a fit, what works, what doesn’t, etc. What about a post on how you approach a closet purge?

    This outfit is dreamy. I’m praying we have an early fall (I’m in SoCal) so I can wear my fall clothes! It’s going to be 85 degrees this weekend. But I don’t care. I’m going to wear my new plaid Veronica Beard blazer to my boys’ soccer game and bring a portable fan or something 🙂

    Loved your interview with Downtown magazine! Thanks for sharing! 🙂 Nate is so big now 🙂 He’s only a couple months older than my daughter Gabriela. I always love any pics or updates you post about him. I was reading your blog pretty regularly while I was pregnant and you were only a couple months ahead of me. I actually started using quite a few maternity and child products that you recommended, so for me, that’s when your blog was not only a gorgeous one to look at but also pretty useful! Keep it up! 🙂 And I gotta get on Instagram!

    In love with this suit! Looks amazing on you!

    I fell in love with your blog from day one! I enjoy Instagram but prefer blogs as the content allows for a more personal setting. I noticed that some bloggers had slacked back or were no longer maintaining their blogs and seemed to shift their energy to Instagram. I had assumed that this was the trend to follow and visited your blog less frequently. Knowing that this is your preference too, I will get back on track and start revisiting on a regular basis. I’m totally into the plaid blazers too and have to get control of my urge to buy another. This 2-piece looks great on you!

    […] since I found myself scrolling through the Brooklyn Blonde’s blog and flicking through her 2018 Autumn haul on her Instagram stories, I immediately fell in love […]
