Smell The Roses



We live in such frantic times, moving from one thing to the next without really concentrating on anything in particular. Our minds become restless – yet we have so many opportunities to be generous and inspire each other. Today’s post is all about “smelling the roses”, and how the birth of my son, Kingston taught me to appreciate just how precious life is. When Kingston was born everything had changed. As a new parent, you learn that the cliché everyone tells you is actually true: It goes so fast. My son will turn 4 this year and I cannot help but be astounded by this simple fact. I get teary eyed just thinking about it because I don’t want this experience of raising Kingston to race by. I want it to drag on, deliberately, definitively, and perhaps forever.

I want to enjoy being a mother. Being a mother is the BEST life has to offer. It has taught me to live my life with compassion; to be kind to myself so I can be kind to others.

So, let’s make today count! Let us stop, and “smell the roses” together, as they say, because right now is the only time we will ever have. Let’s make the most of it.

Have a great weekend.

Much love!

Mama in Heels







Today’s post is very special to me because my son is making a guest appearance! Please, welcome my three year old son, Kingston!

“Celebrating motherhood in a chic way” has always been my style mantra hence when the team at Oh Baby Chic asked if I wanted to collaborate with them I literally starting jumping! Yes! Yes! Yes!

Motherly love truly is the best kind of love – it is the purest form of unconditional love. Watching the world through my son’s eyes is truly mesmerizing. His fascination of the world is so beautiful, so pure and innocent. He is my inspiration, he truly is. And let me tell you: Motherhood is by no means a personal style hiatus. In fact, embrace it! We may not have all the time in the world to get ready in the mornings but it certainly shouldn’t hinder us to feel our best. Celebrate mother in a fun, chic way – one beautiful tee at a time!

As always, thanks much for reading & have a fabulous day!

Much love!
