Hello! Welcome to the Oasis, the place I talk about a medley of topics, including marriage and parenthood, beauty tutorials, photography, my pursuits in becoming the ultimate domestic goddess here in New York City and lots more. Pull up a chair, have some coffee, and relax while you read…I love being the hostess!
I’m Penelope, a freelance writer, amateur photographer, and the work-at-home NYC mom of two delicious bunchkins, as well as the wife of a brave man who is truly my hero. In a past life, I was a pharmacist and traveled the world, but as the cool James Faust once said, “A woman can have it all…sequentially.” I plan to have it all, and I’m at the mommy and wife stage in my travels through life (and enjoying every minute of it).

If you love to read about happy marriage tips, adventures in parenting, healthy living, hairstyle tutorials, recipes, and general fun reading, this NYC mom blog is the right place. We recently bought our first new home, and will be spending a lot of time renovating our fixer upper into our dream home (and we love DIY projects, so will be tackling quite a bit of it ourselves). Stay tuned for home renovation projects posts!
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoy our beauty tutorials, recipes, and more, and visit again!
