Europe 2022 (Part 1): Lake Garda, Italy

Europe 2022 (Part 1): Lake Garda, Italy

Hello friends! I’m excited to kick off the first in a four part series sharing more about our two week to Europe! We had such a special trip (with highs and lows, which can be expected) and I’m just really grateful for our time together. First up, our trip to Lake Garda, Italy. Lake Garda is the largest lake in Italy and known for its turquoise waters – it reminded me a lot of Lake Tahoe, actually! When researching and planning the trip, we heard that Lake Garda was a less crowded, family-friendly version of Lake Como. Knowing we wanted to go to the mountains […]

Maisonette Labor Day Sale Picks: Manhattan Toy

Maisonette Labor Day Sale Picks: Manhattan Toy

Maisonette is one of my favorite places to buy kids items, as they do such a wonderful job of curating beautiful and creative toys, clothing, accessories, etc. for littles. I noticed they are doing a big Labor Day sale (up to 40% off!) and that one of my favorite toy brands, Manhattan Toy, was included in the sale. I  love how thoughtfully designed and fun these toys are – and at a great price point (even when there isn’t a sale!). Here’s some of my favorites! I’ve included a star next to the ones we own and love. BABY TOYS Musical Lili Llama* Safari Lion […]

Packing for 2 Weeks in Europe with Carry-ons Only!

Packing for 2 Weeks in Europe with Carry-ons Only!

Earlier this summer, we went on a two week trip to Europe! We opted to travel with carry-ons only, because I’ve heard too many horror stories of lost luggage and also wanted to travel lightly. Our two week trip had four stops (Lake Garda, Italy + The Dolomites + Croatia + Venice, Italy). For the most part, it was hot and typical ‘summer in Europe’ weather, but our time in the mountains was a little cooler, so we did need some layering pieces. Without further ado, here’s a huge brain dump of what we packed for our two-week trip to Europe with two kids! THE […]

Shop Lucky Collective Moroccan Mini Rugs are Here!

Shop Lucky Collective Moroccan Mini Rugs are Here!

I’m so excited to share that I  launched Moroccan mini rugs in my shop! First, let me back up and tell you the story! In late 2019, I launched my online textile shop curating one of a kind Moroccan pillows. Throughout 2020 and 2021, I’ve sourced and sold thousands of one of a kind Moroccan pillows, poufs, blankets, towels, ceramics, and other homewares. Earlier this summer, E and I visited Morocco to source new products and meet new suppliers. While exploring a small village with one of my partners, I discovered the process of making boucherouite rugs (locally known as rag rugs). These rugs are made […]

Crowdsourced Belt Bag & Tote Bag Recommendations

Crowdsourced Belt Bag & Tote Bag Recommendations

I recently asked my IG community for their top recommendations for tote bags as well as belt bags (that can be worn as a fanny pack and/or cross-body). As usual, I got so many great recommendations! Many people asked me to share the results, so here you go! I haven’t ordered a belt bag yet, but have been wanting to get one for so long! I think I want to order a more casual version and also a nicer leather option. Everyone raves about the Lululemon Everywhere Belt Bag  but it’s basically always sold out online, so I’ll probably do the BAGGU Fanny Pack. For […]
