Since becoming a mom my daily beauty routine has been significantly paired down. I don’t have the time ( or desire) anymore to spend an hour getting ready for the day. As I get older and more comfortable in my own skin I also find myself more drawn to a natural look rather than looking like I just stepped off a photo shoot. Read more
On Friday we are moving out to East Hampton for the summer and I could not be more excited. We have been spending weekends there since Memorial Day and those two days a week are never enough. I am very much looking forward to beach days, sunset cocktails at our favorite vineyard, and lots of swimming in the pool with Hermione. Each summer with Hermione gets more and more fun and I have a feeling this will be our best yet! Read more
Summer is my favorite season for dressing Hermione. It is so much easier to throw a dress and bloomers on than to layer her in tights, sweaters, coats, hats etc. Plus she looks so adorable and girly in a little summer dress I can hardly stand it!

Let’s talk about sex. One of the questions I get asked most frequently is what do I for birth control. If you know me at all you would guess (and be correct) that I do not take a hormonal birth control. I realize they work for many people and that birth control methods are a very personal choice.

I am super clean about what I eat, what products I use, and what I clean my house with so why would I pump my body full of hormones? No thank you! Read more
It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a new recipe here. I just haven’t been creating many new recipes these days. Most nights I make very, very simple dinners for Doug and I that are not all that exciting to anybody but us! We eat well but it’s a lot of kale salads and simple roasted veggies around here. Quick, easy fare that I can make after Hermione goes to bed and before I collapse for the night! Read more
