The New Skincare Brand I Swear By

February 18, 2020

Hello Date Night! In the midst of primping myself for a night on the town, I grab my new favorite skin care products and hustle to get the job done. I’ve got to admit something. These winter days have my skin feeling anything but glamorous. Not to mention the sleepless nights or early mornings as a brand new mama. Day after day, I’ve stared back at my reflection in the mirror, and barely recognize my own face…the dry, unhealthy skin, the dark circles, the exhaustion. For the first time, I’ve realized my skin is desperate for help. I’ll be honest, I’ve always been incredibly lazy about skincare. The numerous brands overwhelmed me. The price points of these “magical products” are steep. My skincare routine was incredibly simple. I’d put my makeup on in the morning, and it was patchy and unattractive. My makeup wouldn’t go on smoothly, and even after moisturizing, my skin felt dry as a bone and quite unhealthy.

It’s been close to four months that I’ve spent in destination Mamaville, without a solo date night, and we were anxious to get out on the town. However, we decided to head on an epic adventure, to close out the end of my maternity leave. We traveled to Maui, as it is the very place that has been so special to us. For years we wished that we would bring our future baby to an island that feels like our second home. That wish finally came true.

Top Favorite Baby Products

November 3, 2019

For the past 3 months, (well 12 months if you include the pregnancy), my brain has been consumed with all things baby related. What exactly would we need, in terms of strollers, clothing, and other baby gear? It’s overwhelming to say the least, and the fact that we live in NYC makes space so limited. Ever since baby London arrived on the scene, I’ve definitely limited the baby gear down to my favorites and must-haves. Please keep in mind that while each baby is different, here are my favorite products that work best for us. You may find that your child may have their own list of must-haves. I thought that I would share ours, in hopes that it would help you on the journey to Mama-ville.

The Teeny Secret We’ve Been Keeping

On a recent warm, summer Sunday, I sat at the fountain at Lincoln Center. It was the very same spot, that we sat, facing each other last year, around midnight, after receiving the most soul crushing news of our lives. (You may remember the photo. I’ll never forget it.) An exact year has gone by, and this summer day feels much different. We are in that very same spot, but I feel the warm, rays of the sun beating down on us. I hear the fountain trickling behind us, but more importantly, I place my hand on my very round belly, to feel the kicks of our growing baby boy.

Oh, the winter blues. They’re a snooze, aren’t they? It’s bitter cold out, and you find yourself zipping up puffer coat after puffer coat, bundled like the Michelan Man, just to stay warm. I know. I’m with ya.

On a cold, wintry long weekend, we quickly packed our bags for an unexpected adventure. While we had been dreaming of a sunny beach vaca for the weekend, which we had waited to long to book, we decided to simplify our plans. We received an incredibly generous gift for a stay at the luxurious, 5 star Greenwich Hotel, located in Tribeca. This past weekend, seemed like a perfect opportunity to spend a romantic weekend together, on a staycation, in our home sweet home, New York City.

Holy Discoballs! We Made it!

On a dark, rainy, New Year’s Eve night, I watched raindrops trickle down my window. As I peered out outside, I saw reflections of the city lights, as the rain wiped away the dust of 2018. “Does this seem symbolic of the year?” Grant said. He had it 100% right. It most certainly did. The dust of that stormy year finally settles, and we move on.
