I work full-time and travel extensively on business. The downside of being a working mother is that I spend a lot of time on the road missing my family but providing a wonderful life for them is my main motivation. My two children are amazing little people who constantly remind me to appreciate life. I love to dress them fashionably and take photos while they are enjoying themselves. I have spent countless hours on planes looking at their photos and writing down memories.
While it can be hard to be a working mom, I maintain a postitive attitude (most of the time) by focusing on the perks and trying to maximize my weekends and evenings. Some of the perks include: working with and meeting amazing people, entertaining clients at fabulous restaurants and spas and staying in nice hotels. That being said, I do enjoy the occasional mini-bar dinner of beef jerky and a powerbar at a less than 4 star hotel. I realize these dinners are both glamorous and health conscious.
The blog is inspired by many people and resources that motivate me to aspire to be stylish and pulled together, despite myself. Years ago, I bought a suit because I liked the fact that I could roll it up in a ball in my suitcase and it would not wrinkle. My husband, Michael, has helped me avoid my penchant towards exercise clothing and wrinkle free suits. He is so good that I actually have grown to love fashion and the best part is that he is always on the hunt for the next great fashion item for me. It is also inspired by my eccentric and sometimes psychotic father who advised me to “take life and shake it by the throat.”
