As I'm about to jet off to NYC for Fashion Market Week with my now 18-month old, I'm both excited and frightened at the same time. There will be quite a bit of juggling between work and making sure he gets to experience the Big Apple. Luckily, my old friends promised to help out to watch the little tyke while I'm at the shows. Let's just hope he'll behave and not make these wonderful single gals want to slit their wrists.
I'll report back on any emerging talent finds, plus my fun-filled East Coast vacation afterwards when I return next week. Cheers everyone!

Between motherhood, career and health, this week was truly a balancing act for me.
The constant war between working moms and stay-at-home moms baffles me. A mother's job is not easy no matter how you look at it. I choose to be a working mom because it nourishes my self-esteem, which in turn makes me a better mom and I think a better wife. Even at the most challenging times, like this week where I had to interview numerous candidates both for home (nannies) and for work (sales associates) while fighting a terrible cold, I realized we can do it all. Of course, it depends on how you define "all". Having it "all" to me, is being happy when my family is happy, and knowing that each day I try my best to maximize my own potential-- that's good balance.
