Hi! And Welcome! I’m Hilary, (that’s me over there) I’m a new-ish Mom to a perfect little human named Asa! I’m also a full time Wardrobe Stylist here in Los Angeles and an open book.
I love, love, love, vintage shopping, road trips, diners, dogs (RIP Harold), and hot sauce. And now that I’m cooking for a tiny human, I’m also super into new recipes and flavor adventures for her!
When I was pregnant I felt healthy and invincible but also totally like a fish out of water, disoriented in this new uncharted territory. I read SO MANY ARTICLES with all sorts of helpful, (and useless) information, gravitating towards books like The Girlfriends Guide to Pregnancy and the 1000% true article The No Bullsh*t Bits of Advice… that I hoped would give me the real, unedited version of what was about to happen.
Still, at some point I had to just stop for a sec and listen to my intuition about my own version of Motherhood. When I finally stopped reading the pregnancy forum threads at 3am, my anxiety level dropped – though I’ve never in my life laughed as hard as I did at the thread about looking at your vagina after birth. So horrifying. So hysterical. I’ll find the thread for you some day I promise.
Now that I’ve made it through the first year I’m ready to share some of the lessons I’ve learned, the mistakes I’ve made, and a bunch of other fun and relevant stuff too. You can expect funky and inspirational kids photoshoots, cool Mom style guides, travel tips, awesome tutorials with some of my super talented Mom friends (from Dermatologists to Doula’s) and the occasional recipe. What you won’t find is judgement or DIY, because OMG I’m way better at BIY (buying it myself). And BYOB. I’m really good at that too.
This blog’s for you Momma’s, you’re gonna be great. We’re gonna be great. We ARE great.
