What a week… and it’s only Wednesday-May 24th, 2017

  In light of Monday’s events, I just want to take time to say how devastated I am by what happened in Manchester. It is horrible that we live in a world where innocent lives are so easily taken without remorse. My heart goes out to Ariana Grande and all the families and survivors, I can’t imagine the type of pain they’re going through.



My son, Ollie, was able to beat the heat though in Frost Valley for his fourth grade overnight trip! It was only for a night, but that was long enough for me to miss him, and a good enough reason to take 40 million pictures before he got on the bus! LOL! He was so unbelievably ready for me to put the camera away, but I needed enough pictures to make up for the time he was away haha! I’m glad he had a really great time though, it’s so great for kids to learn about science and nature, especially when growing up in the city.


#Blakey Bleu, also had a photo shoot! Scott Rosenthal www.scottrosenthalphoto.com was so great to work with and perfectly captured my daughter’s adorable personality in ballet!


She and I also had a great time strolling around the Met, it’s always a priority of mine to set aside some mother-daughter bonding time and this was just the thing. Plus it gave me an opportunity to show Blakey amazing art, as well as get a break from the heat. Equipped with my amazing City Select Lux stroller, which are to die for, it made for a fun and easy day out. Can I just rave about these strollers for a minute? It makes traveling with toddlers so convenient and if you need extra room, it converts from a single to a double stroller! You can also add an infant car seat or a pram to it, so it’s the perfect fit for a growing family. I don’t know what I’d do without it!

In wake of the tragic event this week…coming together with your family is the most important thing! #familytime most important did you tune into the @marieclairemag #thefix to find some of my #fabULyssfinds for a wonderful#memorialdayweekend picnic! @upicnicnyc @fujifilm_instax_northamerica @barefootdreams @redvelvetnyc @frutapop @newpop @kiehls with @brittneyhlevine #motherhoodisab#tch #holidayweekend #centralparknyc


Loved ❤️ planning a @marieclairemag#fabULyssfix picnic @brittneyhlevine yesterday in the beautiful #centralparknyc making lasting memories with your family this #memorialdayweekend — at Central Park.


I hope all is well in this crazy May weather. As you may know, NYC was hit by quite the heat wave last week, catching everyone off guard after a rainy spring. To celebrate this taste of summer, as well as my son’s baseball team making it to the playoffs, we decided to try this amazing new restaurant, Wahlburgers, on the Upper East Side! The menu features amazing burgers, sandwiches, and #fabulyss frappes! The frappes are truly delysscious, built high with goodies, as well as candy on the outside of the glass. My son loved his chocolate frappe that came piled with toasted marshmallows, chocolate syrup, and crushed oreos; a true sugar overload! It was an amazing after game treat to celebrate a win.


Also speaking of summer, can we please talk about the beautiful Jeff Koons sculpture at Rockefeller Center! The Seated Ballerina is absolutely beautiful and was the perfect addition to the magical, warm week we were having. There’s really nothing more beautiful than New York in the spring. Everything just seems to take on a life of its own.


Hoping everyone has a safe and #fabulyss #memorialdayweekend!
