Friday Fab Four

If you’re looking for a good puffy vest for Fall, may I suggest one from J. Crew Factory? I have one in black and I quite like it. Plus, they are always on sale. Hannah has always been a mischievous lady. It’s part of her charm. But now that she is older, her mischief could a) get her seriously hurt or b) turn her into a little girl no one wants to be around. So now I have to take her discipline more seriously. I have been trying to not say ‘no’ to her all the time, which is hard […]

Friday Fab Four

Hi freyunds! It’s FRIIIDAAYYYYYY! Here are four fab things. I got a hat like this  when Hannah was a newborn. Now I want to get one for her as a big girl. I am a sucker for baby hats with ears. I made this mac n cheese yesterday. I added broccoli and crispy bacon. I also did the baked option. It was delish. I definitely recommend making it. I am not a big yard sale shopper. I approach yard sales the same way I approach potluck dinners: with major apprehension. HOWEVER, here is a list of things to never buy […]

Friday Fab Four

Sorry I haven’t blogged this week. I have been traveling and it’s weird to be at someone’s house and be like, ‘Oh sorry, I can’t hang out right now because I need to go outside and take pictures of what I’m wearing. You understand, right? Okay, bye.” There is no way for that to not be awkward and self-absorbed sounding. But here is Friday Fab Four! Is anyone else super excited for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?! I am so excited. Sadly, I can’t get early access because I don’t have the credit card. But I will be first in line […]

Friday Fab Four!

I did not do a Friday Fab Four last Friday because it certainly was NOT a fab day. With the events in France yesterday, it doesn’t seem like this Friday is much better. But I hope this post can be a happy distraction. I’ve got my eye on this clutch. Overall this store might be my new favorite online shopping destination. You guys, here’s a Harry Potter themed newborn shoot! The baby is dressed like a Mandrake and is crying! His older brother is giving him the saltiest look ever! There is so much perfection happening! Exclamation points!! You guys I […]

A super quick hiatus

I am moving this week, everyone. This is exciting because I am finally getting out of the apartment that I wasn’t in love with and moving to a house that I really like. It is a bit stressful, though. With Hannah we can’t be nearly as efficient with the move as we want to be. So instead of shooting for the blog this week, I am in yoga pants and a t-shirt unpacking boxes and getting everything in order. But don’t worry. I will be back with new posts next week — and I am also not missing Friday Fab Four. […]

Friday Fab Four

In my opinion, Nasty Gal is not my favorite name for a clothing boutique. I don’t want my clothes to be nasty. I want them to fabulous. Despite the random name, I love their clothing options. How cute it is this dress?? I want it soooo badly!!! Are you taking a baby to fireworks this weekend? Don’t stress about the noise. Homemade fireworks are not a good idea, though. Except sparklers. I do love a good sparkler for adults and very mature children. A watermelon cocktail is perfect for the 4th. However, many of them include vodka. I don’t drink vodka because it makes […]

I have been wanting to buy a pair of pom pom sandals for a while. But I was not about to spend $200 on the pair from Net-A-Porter. Like, come on, people. I gots student loans. I found this pair on Etsy. The woman who owns this store hand makes some pretty epic shoes. Be sure to look at her entire collection. So we are having Hannah’s first birthday ‘party’ this weekend. I am not doing anything extravagant because she literally has no idea what a birthday is or why it’s important. HOWEVER, I still had to Google birthday ideas just […]

Friday Fab Four

Okay, I know the first part of Friday Fab Four is supposed to be about fashion, but I am making it about beauty today. I tried a new makeup remover/cleanser I would like for you guys to know about because it works and it’s moisturizing. It’s this cleansing balm by Colleen Rothschild and it’s so amazing! Get it. Your skin will thank you. Oh and I got you guys a 20% off code! Use CLARA20. You won’t regret it. I know it isn’t even July, but I went ahead and got Hannah a winter coat. I feel like last winter I wasn’t as prepared as […]

Friday Fab Four!

Uhhh, did you know you can buy swimsuits on Etsy?! Is there anything this site can’t do??? Hannah has been wearing overalls a lot this summer. They are SO CUTE. I put her in her little Martha Washington bonnet and she looks like a presidential farmer. I love these. I made my first homemade pizza! It was delish, except next time I am adding mozzarella to the recipe. Also, if you don’t have a pizza stone but you want to ensure your pizza crust is crispy, preheat your baking sheet to 500 degrees for 15 minutes before you put your pizza […]

Friday Fab Four

Summer is here and getting a good sunscreen is even more important than finding a cute swimsuit. If you don’t wear sunscreen, I am giving you all the side eye. You should wear sunscreen every. single. day. No excuses. Since you rub sunscreen directly onto your skin, it is important to find one that isn’t laden with nasty chemicals. Here is a list of good and bad sunscreens. Alas, a lot of the commercial favorites like Banana Boat, Coppertone, and Neutrogena are on the ‘naughty list’. I got this sunscreen for the summer and so far I really like it. I read […]
