MY NURSERY TOUR

About two weeks ago I had a moment of panic. In high school it would have been realizing that I had forgotten about a paper that was due the next day, in adulthood it would have been remembering a conference call I was supposed to dial into about 5 minutes too late, and in motherhood it’s realizing that while I […]

SUMMER PREGNANCY STYLE

When I would share my due date with friends (end of July, by the way), I would always get the response, “Oh you’re so lucky to be missing summer!” Earlier in my pregnancy, I didn’t really understand this response. Why would it matter? Isn’t summer all about flouncy dresses and switching out make up for sun block, and hair maintenance […]

MY ICE CREAM SOCIAL BABY SHOWER

Ice cream social as a theme for my baby shower sort of found me. I was originally thinking I would do a picnic at one of my favorite parks, but my mom and sister were mutually horrified at the idea of me waddling onto a picnic blanket, not to mention the loading and unloading of feeding 30 people from baskets. It […]

LAZY PREGNANCY OUTFITS

My “off duty style” isn’t usually much in the style department. I tend to be horizontal, in bed, picking out popcorn remnants from my bra, balancing a remote and/or cat on my newly popped belly. A vision of pregnant glamour, indeed. But, every now and then I empty a bottle of dry shampoo into my hair and pull it together, […]

SUMMER PREGNANCY FAVORITES

Being in my third trimester in the summer time has changed some priorities. First off, sandals are the only shoes that fit my swollen feet, and thank god pants aren’t necessary anymore because mama doesn’t have time for that. And for beauty – I’m way more interested in skincare than make up. The pregnancy “glow” is a made up thing […]

BABY INSPIRATION

Just as we settled into our house, just as we made all of the finishing touches, we find out we need to turn our guest room into a nursery. At the beginning of my pregnancy, this was a bit overwhelming, because of the possible domino effects – will we have a second kid? Where will guests sleep? I have to […]

PRENATAL MASSAGE OIL

One of the most frustrating things about my first trimester was the lack of massages. No one will give you one. There is a variety of reasons for this (mostly it’s the liability), so I needed to make do at home. But of course, there was another complication here – the oils. I had no idea that pregnancy was a […]

WHAT’S IN MY BAG: PREGNANCY EDITION

My sister, Amanda, finally had enough. We were at the very chic Veuve Cliquot Polo Match, which is the millennial version of the Ascot Gavotte in My Fair Lady. People are dresses to the absolute maximum of fabulous, and while I love dressing up as much as the next girl, the expectations for this event are pretty high. So, I […]

BABY GENDER REVEAL & SUPER BOWL PARTY

I always expect Super Bowl Sunday to be an unofficial family holiday – not because my family loves football, but because we all work in advertising. This started with my dad, who was the art director behind Apple’s 1984 spot, the footnote to all Super Bowl commercial references. Our teams are our production companies, jockeying to get an ad on […]
