Lives In: Long Beach, California
About Me: I’m a mother of three little boys, and so I am always on the move. I grew up in Los Angeles and have always been obsessed with fashion, art & writing. I got my start working in retail at Fred Segal Melrose and another amazing L.A boutique called N*Y*S*E.
After that I started working as a wardrobe stylist partnered with my sister Aubrey Binzer, doing music videos and commercials. After years in that business, I joined the design team at RVCA.
I married my amazing husband Tom in 2004 and we started making babies! I was so fortunate to stay home and take care of my boys but I desperately needed a creative outlet.
Lucky for me I met Erin Lokitz through our husbands who are bandmates in NO DOUBT. We started thingsweheart.com together while out on tour with our husbands band in 2009, and we’ve been creative partners ever since.
Things We Heart’s mission is to share curated collections of amazing fashion, home decor, beauty tips and art for the modern mother. We also share our journey through the ups & downs of motherhood.
Being a mother is messy and amazing and exhausting and invigorating, so we’re not always projecting a picture perfect lifestyle! We want to share our experiences with other mothers and one-day-will-be-mothers who are trying to balance the selflessness of motherhood with that little healthy dose of selfishness we all need to survive!
Together with Erin Lokitz as T.W.H we will launch our first product later this year, check back for that big announcement.

Mama Likes: My passion is my family. Spending time with my husband and our boys out in nature and definitely near the water or in the snowy mountains. Music, art, fashion and reading. I can’t read enough books… It’s an addiction to fiction.
I am inspired by my own mother who gave 1000% of herself to her children. If I can give one drop as much love, support and encouragement to my boys as she did to me, I will be a success as a mother.
I am inspired by my TWH partner Erin, she became a mother a few years after I did, so at first I was the one with all the advice. But she is such a natural and never complains about any of the hard days, that is something I strive to emulate.
I am inspired by all my friends, stay-at-home & working mamas alike. I see these amazing strong women making it work everyday for their families. Women who take the time to celebrate each other and who build each other up.
And lastly Jane Birkin… Because, well… She’s perfect.
Brands that most reflect your style or that you’d want to work with:
Mara Hoffman is a favorite for may reasons and such an inspiration.
The Honest Company is doing amazing things and changing the world.
We can never get enough of Target.
I’m obsessed with A.L.C by Andrea Lieberman, Mother Denim and Ulla Johnson for their consistently beautiful collections.
