As a mom, toys now play a huge part of my life. A good chunk of my day is spent on the floor with Hermione playing with the various dolls, blocks, books or musical instruments that live in her toy bin. I am very selective about what I will let her play with. At this age almost everything she touches ends up in her mouth so I have a very firm no plastic toys rule. I also want to inspire her to be creative with her play so none of her toys light up, use batteries, or play fake music. We are a mostly wooden toys and handmade dolls family.
On Tuesday I co- hosted another Beauty Food Supper Club with Rebecca Casciano and Jolene Hart at Sun In Bloom. Our guests were treated to four delicious courses of beautifying foods that left them all glowing by the evening’s end. This was the first Beauty Food Supper Club we have done since I was pregnant and it felt so great to be back at it with these wonderful ladies! You might note that my baby bump from the last two dinners has now shifted onto Jolene!
It’s back!!! After a brief hiatus over the summer I am thrilled to announce that the Beauty Food Supper Club is back! Our next dinner Beauty, Food Gratitude will be on November 12th. As always we have some amazing gift bag sponsors lined up including La Bella Figura, Youngblood, W3LL People, Kusmi Tea, and Hail Merry.
Last week I co-hosted another Beauty Food Supper Club with the lovely Rebecca Casciano and Jolene Hart. This was our second event and we are having so much fun with them! Last week’s theme was Spring Renewal featuring a delicious spring detox inspired menu, a mini workshop on spring detox tips, and an exclusive gift bag featuring some of our favorite natural beauty brands! Everyone who attended had a wonderful time. As with the previous dinner I was so thrilled that guests were comfortable coming alone and that everyone made new friends and connections!
My apologies for the recent radio silence. Last week took an unexpected turn with a health scare in the family (not me and baby girl) that kept me in and out of doctors offices and the hospital most of the week. Everyone is home and doing much better now but it was a rough week to say the least. Very glad it is behind us!
I am a Nut Milk Enthusiast. I love nut milk in my smoothies, in my tea, or straight up. However until recently I couldn’t find a nut milk that measured up to my very high standards. The commercial kinds are filled with WAY to many nasties for me, and my own homemade variety left me with too much almond pulp to deal with. A little almond pulp is ok, a lifetime supply taking up your whole freezer is not.
I love when out of town friends come to New York. I have lived in this city my entire life and know it like the back of my hand. I love sending friends a list of places they must check out, things to do, places to eat etc. It is even better when I get to enjoy these adventures with them.
I love discovering new restaurants. In fact, I keep a running list of places I want to try. When the eternal question, “where should we go” comes up amongst friends I am always ready. I also have another quirky restaurant habit. If there is a popular new restaurant I want to try I will often make a reservation first, and invite people to join later. With hot spots in NYC filling up sometimes 2 months in advance I like to be prepared!
