Currently Loving…

my beauty

Happy belated Mother’s Day! I am loving SO much right now. My family, my mothers, my kids, my husband, and….the following 5 things.

1) Chris Martin dancing on Saturday Night Live.



Can’t stop watching him. Holy crap, BEST.DANCER.EVER. I think I need to learn all his dance moves. And can we talk about how awesome Coldplay is in general? My favorite. I am in love. And the song? Obsessed.


 2) Toddler Zoe’s special party dress (also known as a tutu).

Glamorous, beautiful, elegant, princess, and oh-so-fun. If only they came in grown up sizes (for reals). I love it, love love love. You can browse Tutu de Monde’s full collection here, and you will want to buy them all. But they are so $$ …. but so unbelievable. Delicate, feminine, and chic.  And Happy 2nd Birthday, my not so baby girl!


3) Le Labo Santal Candle

I just posted on the Natori Scented Candle in my latest gift guide, but I love this one too. A dear friend gifted it to me, and I can’t get enough! I am now burning a candle at every second of everyday because the smell is so intoxicating. It has a woody aromatic fragrance, featuring sandalwood, virginia cedar, cardamom, violet, papyrus, spices, leather, musk and amber. It is both hippy and musky; classic and soothing. A must have.


4) French Plates

I am waiting and waiting for these to get replenished at my favorite kid’s store, Little Circus. These french plates are safe (melamine, BPA free, microveable safe), and I love the idea of the kids learning French and becoming more like Parisian children. Basically, we want all of our kids to be more French-like, right? I want all of these fun plates!


5) Therapy Balls

Although I am no longer prepping for a marathon, my aches and pains are still there. And time after time, my solution is to use these little balls of wonder. You can use them in their custom designed snug-grip mesh tote for spine rolls (top of the neck, down to the sacrum), as well as for IT band & thigh rolls. Easy to bring with you wherever you go. Your muscles will be thanking you.
