Introducing minnow

I am so excited to introduce to you minnow! A boutique children's swim collection, near and dear to my heart. Made here in California. Incorporating all the things I love most!

In my career, I've helped build over brands that I am passionate about/believe in -- but always dreamed to create and design one of my own. Doubts, fears, life seemed to always pop up. Pushed those aside... And today I am excited to share the looming launch of my labor of love -http://www.minnowswim.com 


So much gratitude to all those that provided an abundance of support + inspiration for minnow.

Home Office turns Creative Space

It's about time I posted on here ;)

 I wanted to share where I've been (working + mothering) here is my home work space.  The Caitlin Wilson Kismet Rug, transformed the room into an inspirational creative space.  I love the rich colors of the navy kismet,  making me happy when walking in and getting to work.  In order to stay focused remotely I really need to make the space feel motivating, and the rug did just that.

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)

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

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.
