Friday Fab Four

When I did my wedding guest dress post earlier this week I was reacquainted with ModCloth. Now I can’t stop browsing their site wanting to buy all of the dresses. Like, can we all take a moment to appreciate the majesty of this dress?! Apparently these are the greatest peanut butter cookies ever. I want to make them and then eat all of them. My only issue is the recipe calls for shortening. For some reason the idea of consciously cooking and eating shortening gives me major anxiety. I know I eat it without knowing all the time, but it’s the knowing that gets me. Maybe […]

The Books I Read in April

This picture has nothing to do with books, but it is so cute of me and Hannah getting ready to go a Coachella theme party. Hannah is rocking her tie-dye dress and ‘flower crown’. The Light of the Fireflies: I can’t decide if this is a genius books about the psychological effects of abuse or if this is the single most masochistic book I’ve ever read. I am leaning towards option two, sadly. This book is similar in plot to Room, but it focuses on an entire family who lives together in a basement. The book starts off promising but quickly […]

Is your mom a GoT fan? This shirt is perfect for Mother’s Day. I wish they had one that said ‘Mother of Dragon’ for those of us with one kid or ‘Mother of Dragon Dog/Cat’ for pet moms. But that might be getting too nitpicky. Hannah has little teeth now. I want to start teaching her good dental habits early but she is not too keen on the idea. Right now, I have been trying to wipe her little teeth and gums with a damp wash cloth, but she is NOT here for that. She clamps down her little jaw, turns […]

  Is it ever okay to spend $400 on a top? Well if it was I would absolutely get this shirt. I have been obsessed with acai bowls lately. Hannah and I eat them almost every day. Now I am on a quest for other smoothie bowls to try. This one looks so yum! Though I would have to omit the matcha powder from baby girl’s bowl. My child is literally all over the place. I can’t take my eyes off of her for even a second! I have to put her in the exersaucer when I am not right there beside her because she is […]

Confession: I think bath mats are g-r-o-s-s. They are mildew machines. I use a towel as a bath mat so that I can wash often. I have also seen these fancy new wooden bath mats. They look so zen and nastiness-resistant, but they also look like they could be brutal if you stubbed your toe on them. Is a stubbed toe better than a moldy toe? The jury is still out. You guys — a giant coloring poster!! I realize this is for children and Hannah is too small to color, but I want one of these. I would do such a […]

  This cross body bag is perfect for Spring. It’s shape is relaxed enough for every day wear – but since it’s Kate Spade it obviously has a level of sophistication. Have you ever made a low country boil? I made one last night (but half the recipe for two people and a baby). It was yummy — but my pot was too small. You need a GIANT pot, especially if you make the full recipe as written. I can not wait until Hannah is a little older (aka when she can stand and doesn’t put everything in her mouth.) So I […]

The Books I Read In March

Disclosure: I didn’t read any of the books I am holding in the photo above in March, but I have read all of them in the past. With the exception of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, I can highly recommend all of them. A Manual For Cleaning Women: This book is a series of short stories and it is very LOOOONNNNGGG — but it is a lovely book. This book is full of the most compassionate stories I have ever read. The subjects of the stories are immigrants, the very poor, addicts, and other marginalized and/or troubled groups of people. The author […]

Friday Fab Four is quickly becoming my favorite post of the week. I’m not sure about anyone else but I love FFF! I am in the market for a new swimsuit for the summer. I usually only get one suit each summer because I don’t wear swimsuits enough to justify buying more than one. I definitely want a one piece this year. That is non-negotiable. I think I am going to get this one. However, if I am being real, I secretly wish I could just buy one of these. I realize it isn’t pumpkin season, but this oatmeal looks […]

I am always on the hunt for designers that make classic clothes with a trendy edge. I LOVE Camilyn Beth for this very reason. She makes such beautiful pieces that you can wear again and again. To sweeten the deal there is always a cute ruffle or accent that makes the piece extra adorable. Chocolate chip banana bread brownies?! Um, yes please! I discovered this clothing shop for kids while browsing on Instagram. The stuff is a bit pricey, but it is still so cute. I love their little wing dresses. My very best friend in all the land is the undisputed […]

Do you use Argan Oil? If you don’t you should start. Pure Argan Oil is pricey, but it is well worth it. You can use it for everything from dry scalp to random scrapes and cuts. I use Argan Oil on my hair because my hair is so prone to dryness. I also use it as a moisturizing makeup remover, as a cuticle moisturizer, and I even use it on baby Hannah if she gets dry skin patches. It’s the best stuff ever. I received an e-mail this week from an expecting mother asking about maternity clothes and where to shop for […]
