Decking Our Halls

This past weekend Doug, Hermione and I got into the holiday spirit by trimming our tree, making these cookies and wrapping presents. We had a great, cozy family time and it is so sweet to see Hermione start to take part in holiday festivities. Tonight we will light our menorah, give Hermione her first little Hanukkah gift  and make these latkes. I love how we are creating and adding onto our family traditions each year. As mushy as it sounds, the holidays really are much more fun now that we have a little one to share them with. Read more

Just in time for the holidays, Daily Harvest is launching two new flavors (created by yours truly) to help keep you on the healthy track into 2015! Read more

Happy Freezing Weekend!

November 21, 2014

Happy freezing weekend! Hermione was sick most of this week and now that she is better I can’t wait to catch up on some much needed sleep. On Saturday night I am going to a screening of this movie and I could not be more excited!

Here are some fun links for you. Happy Friday!

I have been trying to drink 1 gallon of water per day. This pretty bottle makes it much easier!

Makeup shopping by look? Yes, please!

I may have to make these for my next get together.

Have you seen this video yet? It’s time to stop waiting and #EndEbola

Fast Flawless Foundation

Fast Flawless Foundation

With a very busy toddler ( where did my baby go?!?) on my hands I do not have much time for a long drawn out makeup routine. In fact, most of the time I leave the house completely bare faced with wet hair which leaves me looking a bit…shall we say… tired? When I can manage to steal 5 minutes, I have perfected a super fast routine that is fail proof! Read more
