GREENWICH VILLAGE lf life imitates art, then the glamorous pieces that fashion designer Caterine Sanchez brings to fruition are clothes that embrace sensuality, femininity, imagination and nature, while incorporating movement, hand-drawn images and if one digs a little deeper - even symbolizes her admiration for a group of friars.


“I’m really close with the friars, I love them a lot,” Sanchez said. “It’s just the community, the love, the animals, St. Francis.”

Momma Mondays: Maternity Wear Tips

Maternity clothes aren't the cheapest so keep in mind how often you'll be wearing them.


By JoAnne


My current and last pregnancy have given me a run for my money with maternity clothes. Not only do you have to find clothes that fit, you also have to make sure you’re prepared for the weather. Unfortunately, for me, there is no preparing for Texas weather. For those women who are in their last planned pregnancy, the question remains: is it worth buying maternity wear?

#MommaMondays: Reflecting On The Past, Hoping For the Future

"As I reflect on everything 2020 has brought upon us,
I try to appreciate the good and learn from the bad."
By Jo Anne

As I reflect on everything 2020 has brought upon us, I try to appreciate the good and learn from the bad. One of the COVID effects that was hard for a first-time mother was the inability to socialize BJ as much as I wanted (playdates, etc.) nor were we able to throw a huge and exciting first birthday party that I had imagined for months. 

But what I did learn to appreciate is that BJ didn’t need an over-the-top party. All he needed was to be surrounded by the people who loved him most (and having his first ever Happy Meal 😊).

"Better Days" by Ant Clemons and Justin Timberlake Infused With Feel-Good Antedotes

Ant Clemons' name has already been cemented in music history with his contributions towards 2020 and most notably, his Grammy nomination for Best R&B Album for debut EP, Happy 2 Be Here. Enlisting the likes of Timbaland, Ty Dolla $ign and Pharrell, the 8-track EP is full of truth and spirit, adding a fresh perspective to the R&B landscape. 

No stranger to hustle, Clemons moved across the country from New Jersey to Los Angeles only a couple of years ago in pursuit of his dream career.
