Mommy and Me Style: NYC Nights

Every once in a while I have to take my daughter with me to an evening event. I’ll make the exception if the event is relatively kid friendly and on the weekends. I want my daughter to be comfortable in all settings….weather she needs to introduce herself to an artist at his gallery opening, or to new kids at a birthday party. We have to have the social skills to handle it all!

I’m so happy to announce that I was featured as the June Mom of the Month by the app Amazing.She.Is!

AMAZING SHE IS is an app that supports women and motherhood. produces a platform for mothers to value their strength, beauty, and innate power they possess turning their dreams into reality. Through powerful words of wisdom, MOM Blogs, MOM Of The Month & more, the goal is to empower mothers to be the best for themselves and the families they’ve created.

If there’s one thing you need to add to your checklist this summer, it’s a trip to Coney Island! There are activities for all ages, making it the perfect weekend destination for the whole family.  The beach, the boardwalk, 3 amusement parks and an aquarium—what’s not to love!? No matter where you are in the city, Coney Island is easily accessible by subway. The N, Q, D, or F will place you exactly one block away from the boardwalk!

It’s been a while since I’ve written a style feature. It just warmed up in NYC and I’m finally able to shed the layers and get into some of the spring and summer styles my west coast friends have been rocking for months! I’m happy to announce that I’m packing away the leggings and looking forward to dressing with more intention 🙂

The Lawrence Family Guide to Bedtime:
Fill her humidifier, crack the window, 2 bedtime stories (with gusto), take away 1 pillow, give her 2 sips of water, turn on the nightlight, add 1 extra blanket, spray 3 pumps of lavender mist, find her stuffed bunny, tuck them in, turn out the hallway light, promise there are no monsters, 3 kisses, run and don’t look back.
