the perfect bra

Bras. They are essential, yet usually more irritating than irresistible. As a fairly petite woman with large breasts bra shopping usually isn’t fun for me. I have never been able to walk into a lingerie store and find what I want. Either it doesn’t come in my size, or has so much frill and push up that my already large breasts seem to be trying to choke me. These days I wear a 32 D and that size actually went up to a 32 DD or E when I was pregnant and nursing. Don’t even get me started on the sad state of nursing bras-that’s a story for another time! There are just not a ton of sexy, simple, chic options out there.  Read more

Frozen Bliss

I am a self admitted (vegan) ice cream addict. On any given day Doug and I have 3-4 pints of various vegan ice creams in our freezer. Even in the coldest of weather I love to have a small bowl of ice cream for dessert. Few indulgences make me happier. Read more

Norman and Jules Toyshop

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.

Beauty Food Gratitude

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!

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!

Girls Night Out

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!

Nut Milk Enthusiast

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.

Pure Food and Wine with a Special Visitor

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.
