super tiny bedrooms

Craig and I are converting our larger bedroom into Luca and Julian's room. We want them to have a big spacious room of their own. We are moving into their super small bedroom. It was our former walk in closet! I found these cozy tiny bedroom images online. It will be super tight but I plan to make it as cute as possible. Oh the lengths we'll go to live in the big city...

My good friend Sarah recently launched her new company b & me. I'm so excited for her! I met Sarah years ago at Luca's preschool. I remember thinking what a cool, laid back, calm mother she was and she had the most amazing style. Her newborn baby, Booker, inspired her new business. Sarah said, “When Booker was a baby, I loved keeping him in his pajamas while walking Tilly & Tatum to school. I would put him in his baby carrier, with Bobby’s jacket over us, and off we went. Our shared body heat kept us so warm and bundled. Wearing one jacket together made leaving our apartment effortless. That’s what sparked B&Me”
Check out the b & me Facebook page if you get a chance. I love looking through all the photos of happy customers wearing the Booker coat in their own stylish way.

I was hoping for a BIG blizzard like the first image (I work from home) but it just missed us here in the city. There was still a lot of snow and the kids were dismissed from school. The last image is a view from our apartment. We're really lucky. We live on one of the few brick streets in New York that cannot be driven down. It is a gathering place for the neighborhood. The street is on a big hill that's perfect for sledding. We're heading there now and it will be Julian's first sledding experience.

some cute looks

I love looking at street style pics from big cities like New York, Stockholm, Paris and LA. These looks are pretty casual and comfortable but cool at the same time; right up my ally.

un petit morceau de moi

We're on the hunt for a country house somewhere upstate New York - a place we can get away to but not too far from the city. Very daunting for me since I've lived in a small apartment my entire adult life. Craig was born on the upper east side and has lived in our apartment since he was 3 years old! I love these small, cozy homes with dark exteriors. I would love to have a flat roof but definitely not happening in the northeast.
