I have been struggling on how to write this post only because I have so much to say but want to keep it short and sweet (we will see if that is doable wink wink). The past two months have truly been surreal. My baby boy Dylan Reid was born on October 4th and my other baby Boy Meets Girl® launched on Nordstrom.com this past Monday on November 10th. Dylan was born three weeks early and a few days before he was born I was finalizing all launch items with my team and the Nordstrom team and ok from the hospital too (that is not a joke) and up until late late Sunday (Nov.9th) night (5amer)! Dylan's early arrival took me by surprise but has been the biggest present in my life. As most of you who read my blog know I am 24/7 running my business, blogging about things I love, writing for OliviaPalermo.com , showing you what I wore to an event and taking you BTS with me and my fashionable, smart and witty friends. So when I was recently interviewed by Social Stylate for their Boss Lady series and they asked me this questions...
What does a typical day look like?
So after a lot lot lot lot of work and a full year of keeping things a secret Boy Meets Girl® has launched in Nordstrom! The secrets are now out 2 babies have arrived! If you missed my post on the BTS of the prep of the photoshoot for this collection check it out here. Thank you to all the press this week covering this new collaboration. It is a dream. Thank you to my incredible team who have been so amazing while baby Dylan arrived early. And thank you all to involved along the whole journey both current and past employees! And thank you to my amazing family and friends and my Dj Blue Steel for all of your support (is that a future CFDA speech? Hmm next goal 2015! Think. Say. Do. )
Make sure to check out the new collection and let me know your favorite piece/s and use the following hashtags on social so I can see you rocking the new line #boymeetsgirl #nordstrombp #nordstromsavvy.

1. Name and Social media channels: Bella Mercado
Blanchet House which is a social services charity, they receive food donations from local bakeries, grocery stores, and markets. With the food they receive they make breakfast, lunch and dinner everyday for anyone who needs a warm meal to eat. I love supporting this cause because it helps me put everything into perspective. Anyone is allowed to come get a meal regardless of their living situation and the meals cooked are actually quality cooked meals. I have met some amazing people come through the Blanchet house.
2. Favorite charity to support and why?
3. Favorite Boy Meets Girl® item and why?
The oversized Kathy 3/4 sleeve top with the logo in cheetah print it's super comfy and soft and I actually put it on right when I opened the package. It fits my style perfectly, comfy and edgy. You can shop this top here!
