Happy Halloween!


Mars had a runny nose on Friday, so we just stayed home in pajamas and carved a pumpkin :)

Happy Friday!


Mars is 1 year, 8 months, 2 weeks, and 2 days old!

It's been a bit quiet around here but irl, we've been busy! Right after our visit in New York, we went to Southern California to hang out with my family and pretty much live everyday like a vacation. We went swimming, shopping, and just lounged around and enjoyed the 100 degree heat. It was so much fun and I miss it already. I sometimes dream about what it would be like to move our little family to So Cal :) 

To catch up, here are some pictures from our trip. Since Mars loves trains, I took him to the Irvine Regional Park to ride the little train and to run around the pumpkin patch. It was super hot so he doesn't look particularly happy, but I think he had a good time.

The cutest thing happened when we were here. Once we were allowed to board the train, Mars ran straight to the engine and waved hello at the "face" of the train. He thought Thomas or one of his friends would be there, but it was just a regular train with no face. He still waved anyway. It was so sweet :)

Mars can say a lot of words now and his first two-word combo is "no more" and it sounds like "no-mohr". He can repeat after what we say but usually only pronounces the first phoneme correctly :) It's super cute, "kiwi" becomes "kewpie", "Halloween" becomes "ha-wee", etc.

September Instagram


Looooonnngggg overdue! Here are some pictures from my Instagram @themamagazette for the month of September. October's will be coming soon :)

On 35mm: Children's Fairyland


Fuji 100 Film

A couple of months ago, we went to the Children's Fairyland in Oakland with Mars' good buddy, Joss. It was a mid-century wonderland and I wish I took more photos on film, but this is where my Ricoh R1 died :( 

On 35mm: Hog Island Oyster Co


Fuji 100 Film

Our friends, Pearl and Tom, came to visit SF from London with the best news: they're expecting! These are from when Auntie Rach, Mars, and I met up with them for lunch at Hog Island Oyster Company at the Ferry Building.

On 35mm: Discovery Museum with AyRay


Fuji 100 Film
This was the last roll of film I ever took in my trusty Ricoh R1. This camera has lasted me many many years and finally just gave up. You can tell it was nearing its end with the orange ribbon it left on most of these photos.

These pictures were taken at the Bay Area Discovery Museum with Auntie Rach. It is my favorite place to take Mars even if most times, he'd rather play with the train table in the gift shop.

On 35mm: Crab Sandwiches and Pacifica


Fuji 100 Film

A few months ago, our friends came up from LA and we spent a day in Pacifica with crab sandwiches from Nick's. It was one of the hottest days we had this summer and I don't think Mars, J, and I were prepared for the heat. We wore pants! So foolish :) 

What Are You Wearing? September Recap


Here are my outfits from this past month. Ok.. I know I wear a lot of black... I like to stay with neutral colors and I don't have a lot of gray and I don't usually like to wear white, so that just leaves me with black! Honestly though, I don't really mind because I found that black is actually really versatile whether you pair it with gold or silver hardware from your purse, or if you wear a cardigan over it in a different color. Plus, as long as the style of clothing is different, you won't feel like you're wearing the same thing all the time. That is one of the reasons why I started this series. I was wearing a lot of black t-shirts...v-necks, crew necks, shirts with pockets, black striped shirts of the same style... and I just felt like I was wearing the same thing everyday. At least now, I'm wearing the same color but not the same styles. How do you add variety to your closet? Feel free to comment and let me know :)
