Product Marketing - Online Course

Three whole months have passed since I have posted (bah! New mom/work life). I felt the need to jump on and share a little update... Since my maternity leave at Bugaboo, I've taken on a consulting role to allow more flexibility as a working mom. Also to have the ability to work with more clients and collaborate with more brands. One of those brands is Freshly Picked.  Freshly Picked has started an online business school on Atly, I have joined in and am teaching an extensive product marketing class. Check out the introduction trailer below...


For the past 7 years I've worked in premium product marketing and online brand strategy for companies big and small. Now, I'm so excited to present this course! 

Despite all the criticize for our millennial generation ;) I've got to say that I really feel grateful (and proud) to be born during the 'online' boom, where people have information at their finger tips, more flexible work situations, are empowered to start businesses from their homes, and given the resources to do so. I created this course to give more marketing insight and ideas into a variety of different ways entrepreneurs can get their product out there, sharpen their skill set and utilize their online resources on a smaller budget.  For more information check it out... here!

7 months old.

If only I could freeze this moment. 7 months old and pure heaven. I don't do enough updating here, but I want to remember this moment. My baby. I love him in these sweet and soft jammies, from Kissy Kissy. I love that they make him look so baby. And since I can't keep him this small forever, I need  photos to remember this boy in his baby blues.

(And yes don't worry we lowered the crib already ;) growing too fast)

Gift for little (boys)

For the first time in my life -- Bah I get to be SANTA! You guys, I can't tell you how long I've looked forward to this moment. Ok yes Theo may be a tad bit young to realize,  but regardless -- it has me brainstorming for all things little...

Entertaining for the Holidays

Now turning into one of my favorite Holiday traditions, last weekend I was able to attend one of Jenny Lee Evan's holiday cooking classes. The menu of the night not only tasted incredible, but had a gorgeous presentation as well. One of my favorite things about Jenny's classes, is that she often uses ingredients from Trader Joe's and Costco. To me, this makes the cooking experience less intimidating.  

Along with exceptional food, there was great company. The icing on the cake! In attendance was a large group of talented and motivated entrepreneurs and bloggers. Felt so good to be surrounded by so many inspirational women that were making things happen.  

In preparation for the Holidays, I wanted to share with you Jenny's divine (and easy!) holiday appetizer, 'The Lentil Dip.' This recipe is posted below, I made it for my mom this week and she couldn't believe how much flavor it punched for being so quick to throw together. Also, aren't lentils a power food? win-win!
Lentil Dip

One 17.6 package Trader Joes steamed lentils
½ c. feta cheese, crumbled
Bruschetta (recipe below)

5 small roma tomatoes, chopped
¼ Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. salt
½ tsp. sugar
Pepper to taste
Put all ingredients in food processor
Pulse lightly until it is lightly chunky.

To assemble:

Put steamed lentils in a medium bowl and separate. Add the bruschetta and feta cheese. Mix together lightly. Store in the refrigerator in a sealed container. Keeps for 2 weeks. Serve cold with crackers. 

Enjoy! xo

Welcome New Sponsor: Penny Scallan Design

Aren't these little personalized backpacks too much cute to handle? I love this carry-all to pack Theo's toys, books and even bottles when heading over to Grammie's house. Once he is old enough, I'm thinking he will get such a kick out of wearing on his own. Everything is so much more adorable miniature, right? to check out more personalized and functional children's gifts, (countdown to the holidays!) head to Penny Scallan Design.

Portland, Oregon

My first visit to the pacific northwest. I have yet to see Seattle, but if it's any version of Portland, I'm already a fan. The moody, damp weather was just what I needed after an overly hot summer for Southern California.  Call it global warming or post-baby hormones, either way this summer was HOT (especially since we were AC-less). That being said, Portland was my welcome to fall.

If I could describe Portland in three words it would be green, urban and foodie.

The restaurant scene was vibrant and eclectic, so many incredible spots, we couldn't even scratch the surface.  Joel and I decided the eats alone are reason enough to come back.  As for green, the drive to the coast (and in our Subaru Outback, of course) was out of this world. Trees and Trees for days. So gorgeous!  We also managed to visit Multnomah falls, which although crowded, was pretty spectacular. The perfect mini hike with a baby to get up close to the falls.

I feel like if your city has an Ace Hotel, it's got to be urban ;) When it comes to shopping, there was a lot of cool menswear options. Joel was loving the shops in the Pearl district, such as Polar and Steven Alan.  All and all, it was the perfect weekend getaway to get a little taste of something different. I love exploring a city I have never been to before. And even better with my two favorite people.

Ponchos in Portland

This weekend I'm headed up to Portland, Oregon with my little family, and all I can think about is warm cozy clothing. I've had enough of this Southern California heat, October in the high 90's? No, thank you! 

I've never been much of a poncho-wearing kind of gal, but I love this chic take on the overhead shall. I love that the above gave it a more modern take with polished flats and a structured bag to give it less of a frumpy look. In terms of comfort, you cant beat it. You are basically wearing a blanket, and not to mention it would be great for me when nursing. Here are some stylish ponchos that that I came across, here, here and here
