bobo choses | a day in L.A.

The Always impressive BOBO CHOSES line has now released their FW14-15 campaign and it brings me to a scene of glamour and charisma. Enter BOBO CHOSES: A DAY IN LA

In the morning at Echo Park, vain palm trees look at themselves in the mirroring waters, while swans praise them for their hairstyles.
What I saw is what I say, it’s just a day in L.A.

At noon on Sunset Boulevard, cartoons take a break from the screens and birds that go for a walk take off their hats to greet each other.
What I saw is what I say, it’s just a day in L.A.

In the evening, at the movie theatre, a giant peanut shushes a couple of fur coats that won’t let him listen to the film’s dialogues because they don ́t stop chatting.
What I saw is what I say, it’s just a day in L.A.

At night, over the skies of Venice Beach, stars that weren’t featured in the movies show off their best splendour hoping to pass the casting.
What I saw is what I say, it’s just a day in L.A.

18months | Wrennyn


I can't believe Wrennyn is going to be 18months old on the 30th. He has changed so much this past month, and it is making me realize that he is now a toddler and my little baby boy is growing up, no matter how strongly I try to deny  it. He is very sure of the things he wants and he doesn't back down easily, this is a very difficult trait to parent, but I know it is a handy personality feature when peer pressure comes into play in the later years of life. Wrennyn's first year and a half had been an emotional journey for me. It is hard to see myself without a baby in my arms anymore and the reality of not going through another pregnancy is starting to set in. I feel like some of us moms will always crave the intimacy of those first weeks of motherhood no matter how many children we add to our brood, but at some point it is time to let go and move forward in life.

I am actually looking forward to the days when we can go to the park and I don't have to hoover over a child full-time. Having 3 boys I picture the adventures we will go on and I think I am ready to have those moments where we are all just having fun together and enjoy learning something new together. I am ready to go through life with these boys and really spend time with each of them. Having a baby around I feel that I am constantly just telling the older boys what they can and can't do. I feel like my time is spread very thin and my enthusiasm for participating in what they have going on has dwindled. I am ready to start being a friend to my boys. I want to be someone they love to hang out with and come and tell stories to. There is no doubt that I have distracted myself with other things recently and I am just trying to be more proactive about what kind of woman I present myself as, to my boys. I learn so much in the beginning phases of motherhood with each new little child and personality filling our home, and now I am ready to not only parent each of them as their unique, tender souls need, but I am ready to try and be there friend, and be someone they love to laugh and be with. No doubt I will need to make some serious changes and adjustments, but you have to start somewhere right?!

I love having little Wrenny in our lives and I am excited to see my boys go through childhood adventures together!

good vibes only | style smaller


Got a few things from the cutest store Wrapped in Wishes and I thought I would share about them, it is a cute AND AFFORDABLE boutique.

The boys are super in to fake tattoos and I was almost giddy when I saw these veggies ones in there shop. I mean seriously I can't handle how cute they are when they are on. Plus, if you're not going to eat your veggies you may as well wear them! Also, loved the "good vibes only" saying on this shirt because I have been working hard on surrounding my little family with positive people. I love the idea of  spreading an awesome message to those around you. Life is too short to hang around cranky people who complain all day.

I also got a new camera this week and loved the idea of this beautiful wooden one, so glad the kids got one to play with too. I just hope their camera skills don't put me to shame. Sweet little Wrennyn took a bird's eye view of his muffin this morning with his camera (find it here) so how is that for instagram skills.  Also Wrennyn is obsessed with wearing glasses all the time, I seriously love this age it is full of all kinds of little moments in each day where I just want to munch on his cute little face. Please don't mind his dirty neck-creases... those third ones just don't have baths as often as their siblings because mom is too busy taking selfies!

Go head over and checked out Wrapped in Wishes cute shop - we want to know what you think of their goodies, too!
