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 […]

Marrakech Travel Guide & Trip Photo Diary

I was in my early 20s and remember being so inspired and loving how different it was from life back home (San Francisco at the time). Then, in 2019, we visited as a family (Eric, 18 month old Lucy and Winnie in my belly). I was truly OBSESSED and we had the best time exploring and trying new food and shopping and introducing Lucy to experiences so different […]

On Juggling Entrepreneurship and Motherhood

This blog post is shared in partnership with Shopify. Juggling Motherhood & Entrepreneurship Panel Last weekend, I had the opportunity to go to NYC in partnership with Shopify and moderate a panel at their Mother’s Day event.
