The Company I Keep


I live a "double" life: online and offline. Both are important to me and I invest as much time, love, and passion as I can.

To nurture both, I live by this mantra: "The key is to keep company only with people who uplift you, whose presence calls forth your best." Epictetus

That being said, I have my family and friends who motivate me everyday; and I also have my favorite blogs/websites that inspire me:


Academy Award-winner Gwyneth Paltrow's lifestyle website, GOOP proves that one can have "everything" (God is that good.) Aside from being a successful actress, she is married to a rock star, has two beautiful kids, can cook, concoct a mean cocktail, and has a fit body to boot! She's also friends with rock star chefs Mario Batalli and Jamie Oliver!
“My life is good because I am not passive about it, I want to nourish what is real, and I want to do it without wasting time. I love to travel, to cook, to eat, to take care of my body and mind, to work hard. I love being a mother who has to overcome my bad qualities to be a good mother. I love being in spaces that are clean and nice.” Gwyneth Paltrow
Mario Batalli's Pasta Vongole
Jamie Oliver's Classic Tomato Spaghetti

My vibe, my life

I am really attracted to "rock star" women — moms who balances family and fashion. The ones that are "spicy" than sweet. Cool yet caring at the same time.

Interior goddess,  Kelly Wearstler is someone I adore. Her new website, My Life, My Vibe showcases her style, design aesthetics, and her cool family.
Cool mom Kelly with her two sons. So kyoot!
I am obsess with black and white stripes! I've been forever searching the perfect striped black and white bag! Can anyone tell me what Kelly's bag is?
Again, black and white is love!
So you think you have a lot of Rimowas? Laban? I love Kelly's over the top style!

The Coveteur

Thank God someone finally put up a website that showcases the homes and style of fashion editors and other stylephiles! Great source of inspiration for interiors and aspirational attires!

The Coveteur is addicting! I can't get enough of it!

1st Dibs

I love 1st Dibs simply because "The most beautiful things on Earth" are there:

Hi Jenni. Your blog is really nice. I've been reading it since last year. Your features and especially your recipes are interesting. As a mom, I really appreciate reading those types of articles. As for other blogs that I always read, I always check out, shopbop, and the popular ones like sartorialist and sea of shoes. I hope you can also feature shopping tips for moms like me who like stylish, but not so expensive stuff. More power to you and God Bless you always.
