Phoebe’s Faves: Stokke, Aquafor, Beautiful Curls, Hey Mosaic, Le Sportsac

Stokke Xplory

“Phoebe’s Faves: All of the things that my Sweet Little Phoebe loves right now . . . .” Stokke Xplory Phoebe and I are at a stage where we simply loooove going for walks.

ThisThatBeauty Previews: Mischo Beauty Luxury Nail Lacquer

Mischo Beauty Backstage Beauty

Spring cannot come fast enough for me, but not for the reasons you might think. I like the cold but I hate wearing gloves and covering up my manicure, especially when polishes like those from Mischo Beauty Luxury Nail Lacquer Collections are waiting to be shown off. Mischo Beauty Luxury Nail Lacquers are formulated without formaldehyde, [...]

Four Things I’m Grateful For This Thanksgiving

Phoebe's Shoes

So I’ve decided to go straight 3rd grade essay assignment and list four things I’m grateful for this Thanksgiving. Honestly, I could go on and on for days…I am one blessed little lady. And not because my life is perfect (because it’s not)…but I am learning that life does not have to be perfect to [...]

ThisThatBeauty Reviews: GIVE apparel meaning

ThisThatBeauty and GIVE Open Cardigan

Talk about a long overdue blog post. . . bad (busy, super pregnant) Blogger! I can’t believe I haven’t covered GIVE apparel meaning sooner. I first learned of the chic, easy, lifestyle brand a few months back and I instantly fell hard for their ultra-confortable, yet (dare I repeat the word…) chic, versatile jackets. I first tried the [...]

ThisThatBaby: Skin Care for Mommy-to-be

Mama Mio Tummy Rub Stretch Mark Oil

While I knew that pregnancy would change my life in many ways, some of those changes I expected… and some were a complete and total surprise. Sure, I knew that I would have to give up things like wine, vigorous  exercise, and sushi….but I never gave much thought to how my skincare routine would have to change. Certain skincare [...]

ThisThatBaby: My Stokke Nursery Design, Part 1

Stokke Nursery Design

In my entire baby planning phase, the one area in which I feel the most overwhelmed is Nursery Design. We live in a multi-level brownstone and baby’s room is spacious…not huge, but absolutely adequate. There’s plenty of room for the necessary nursery furniture — crib, dresser, changing table, etc. Again, the baby’s room is not huge, but adequate. However, after [...]

ThisThatBaby Reviews: Thyme Maternity

Thyme Maternity

Ugh, where to start? So — Maternity Clothes. Truth be told, I am largely underwhelmed. Largely. Most maternity stores I’ve visited are poorly organized. Racks are crammed with a mish-mosh of empire waist dresses (which give me total “uni-boob” effect) and cross your heart tops that reveal way more cleavage than I’m comfortable exposing. If you’ve been [...]

TTB Maternity Mashup: Rent The Runway

Rent the Runway

A few weeks back I attended the CEW Beauty Awards Luncheon….you might recall that last year I was a presenter. Well fast forward to this year, and I’m many months preggo and in need of a bump-friendly option. Luckily, this Elizabeth and James dress from Rent the Runway (@rent_the_runway) saved the day.

ThisThatBaby: Gearing Up…”Baby Gear”

Stokke Xplory

Where did the months go? It seems like just yesterday I was itching to hit the 12-week mark and share our baby news with family and friends…and WHAM!…now I’m just a couple of weeks shy of my third trimester. With Baby Benson (a girl *squeal*) quickly approaching her fall debut, I figure I need to [...]
