It feels like I’ve been playing catch up since I got back from Mississippi last week. Luckily, Hubs and I were able to get the house somewhat together and then we headed midtown where he shot some photos of me for the blog. We headed to one of my favorite spots in the city – Urban Grind – where I grabbed a coffee (don’t worry it’s decaf!) and wore my new favorite dress from ZARA. I swear they can never do me wrong.

I’ve got to say, I’ve really been trying to wrap my head around my current schedule and throwing a baby into the mix. Aside from Mattieologie, I handle my daily duties as the style editor for CocoaFab in addition to maintaining my position at my 9 to 5. Throwing a newborn into the mix is going to be challenging I imagine.

I will say though, I wouldn’t have it any other way. I love having a platform where I can be myself, getting to write about celebrity style and fashion + getting paid for it and being fortunate enough to have a 9 to 5 in a market like this. I don’t do well with a lot of idle time, so you could say I’m very good at this point. I always say “you can do anything, but not everything” so I’m sure I’ll have to clear something off my plate sooner than later. But right now, I’m really into my urban grind.

  5. I was about to say “what is she drinking??” lol…Cute dress and you seem to be doing well managing everything. Great photos!


  6. After being a complete coffee addict (3-5 cups of black daily) I totally stopped after I got pregnant. I tried to switch to decaf, but the acidity made my heartburn worse! I just drink tea now, which is weird, but I got used to it quickly. Anyway, let’s just say you are way more badass than this pregnant lady, because I’m barely able to balance in flats at this point let alone heels!

  7. You look great! I can’t wait to meet Babyologie!
