Today I found a picture in my phone that my daughter took of my son that made me realized just how grown my baby has become. He’s 13 years old and will be a freshman in High School this September. HIGH SCHOOL! I know its only January but I’m already freaking out! My son was diagnosed with Autism when he was 5 years old and finding him the best school has always been an issue for us. I’m deep in the search of finding him a High School that can challenge him academically while providing him with the related services and support he needs. Living in New York City, we surrounded by so many choices in schools but at times it can be overwhelming. I’ll be out on school tours and applying to as much schools possible. My husband and I are anxious for our boy but at the same time we have to be confident in that he’ll be ok. For the parents reading this, you already know how hard this job is. When they’re newborns, it’s easy to think they’ll fit in your arms forever. But time can be cruel and smack you in the face. My son is 13 and my daughter is 10. I want to be selfish; I want keep them in my arms forever. But I can’t. I have to let go a little and have faith in them. My son will be ok. He’s going to High School and I’m excited about this new chapter in his life.
Have any of you been down this road before? If so, please comment with some advice. I’m all open!

I can’t believe the year is almost over. The season is changing, its getting colder, and the leaves are changing and falling off the trees. This means change.
Nothing beats the feeling you get when you step off the plane in Dominican Republic and get a good whiff of the smell in the air! I probably book my trips to return just for the smell of the island.
I’m not one who commits to my new years resolutions but something different happened in 2016. This year I promised myself to step out of my shell and try something new. This year I was turning 40 years old and I started to reflect on my life. Although I have soo many things I’m proud of there still another 40+ years of life I want to live that’s a bit different from what I’m used to. I’m usually shy and the last person to seek attention. So how do you start behaving the opposite of that? Start a blog and post many many pictures of yourself! Of course! So now its December and as I spend a few days in La Romana, Dominican Republic, I can’t believe how much I’ve grown and changed. The beautiful setting in paradise was the perfect place for me to be in and reflect on this year as it ends. What I’ve learned is that no one cares if you jump, scream, dance, sing….etc… seriously…just live your life. Do what ever it is that will put a smile on your face and makes you feel good about yourself.
This year I turned FOURTY years old and all I wanted to do was celebrate somewhere tropical. I chose to stay at the Fairmont Mayakoba in Riviera Maya and I am soo happy I did. I needed to bring in the milestone year spending my time totally relaxed and this resort did not disappoint!
Today I went for a walk at our neighborhood park when we came across this beautiful fog. It was an amazing opportunity to take some pictures. It’s getting chilly here in NYC and I love wearing this J.CREW coat for this time of year. It’s not
Who said office attire has to be boring? I love this outfit for its simplicity and for its multi purposeful-ness. Throw a blazer over it, and its office ready. Wear your favorite straw hat and you’re ready to Sunday brunch. I’m 5’2, which means, I’m short! I have been looking for crop pants that actually
I’ve recently started a new job and its the end of the school year for my kids, which means I’ve been swamped! I’ve been overwhelmed with keeping up with all end of year class parties, buying teacher gifts, playdates, while trying to keep a cooked meal on the table every night (I barely did it for one night this week…). I love being a mom, but I’m sure all parents would agree,
I have been wearing the same leather jacket for over ten years, until NOW! I fell in love with this jacket as soon as I saw it. Everyone owns a motorcycle jacket of some sort so it’s hard to tell them all apart. What makes this one so different? It’s not leather! It’s vegan. Vegan leather is a leather substitute fabric that contains no animal products.
As a New Yorker, gravitating towards a black and white outfit comes so natural to me. This time, I thought I would add a bit of flair with a pair of fabulous pumps with feather appliques. I got lucky walking into a J.Crew store when I found these shoes. They were retailed for about $300 but I walked out of the store with them paying under $100! I’m a big bargain
