Best advice for all mothers

Posted By : Mrs. F

My daughter turned two the other day and I get a little sentimental every time I think how fast she’s grown and how the past two years have just flown by. In a blink of an eye my darling princess will be 18 and heading off to college! I keep telling everyone, at times I just wish I had a pause button. With the many diversions of everyday life you almost forget to pause and take a breather to savor the precious moments with your children. What’s worse is that my “mommy brain” has caused me to forget so much, and the memory of the past two years is all but a blur. So I always had this fear that I wouldn’t be able to give my daughter a proper account of her childhood, filled with all the details that memories fail to recall.

Luckily, I came across a valuable piece of advice while watching a segment on Brook Burke’s “modern mom” youtube channel  where she was asked  ”What was your best recent mom tip?” and she said that once a friend of hers told her that the best way to keep your children’s memories alive is to write them letters. She would create email accounts for her kids and every once in a while send them short emails recounting memorable experiences. How wonderful! So on the occasion of my daughter’s 2nd birthday I thought It would be the perfect time to start doing just that. I hope this inspires you too..

pamplemousse design inc.

Posted By : Mrs. F

I have been a huge fan of Pamplemousse’s interior design work for years without ever knowing it was actually theirs, till recently. Created in 2000 Pamplemousse is an interior design company specializing in high end residential projects based in New york. The founder, Delphine Krakoff, grew up in Paris and although her education was in Business, it was her own interest in design that landed her jobs at the luxury houses of Louis Vuitton and Christian Dior. Her venture into interior design came by chance when a friend asked her to decorate her Beach house in the Hamptons, and the rest was history. Her rooms are always exciting and full of life. I love how she pairs simple sleek furniture with bold colors and prints and always finishes it off with a bit of quirk.

Fabulous!
