Need ideas for things to do with your kid(s) at home? Here are 10 that work for us.
And then you do, you love him even more.
Through this unique experience of loss, I’ve found that juxtaposed emotions are a mindfuck. Life is messy. And holidays can be hard.
We had two losses back to back.
How do you wear grief? I didn’t know which clutch to clutch in it. And one day it all spilled out.
On the night you were born, the moon smiled with such wonder that the stars peeked in to see you and the night wind whispered, “Life will never be the same.”
I’m just a girl, standing in front of our next Whole Foods location, with my husband and business partner, wearing a necklace that says Mother and a hat that says Señor Lechuga Hot Sauce, asking how the hell did I get here??
I wear a ton of hats, both literally and figuratively, but yeah, this new one is my favorite…
I recently unfollowed a mom account that slammed a mother of a 6-month old for saying “isn’t this the most amazing thing ever?” about motherhood at a mommy and me class.
Motherhood is all the magic and all the madness.
People think when you’re self-employed everyday is Saturday. But that’s retirement. Everyday is Monday for entrepreneurs and business owners.
Yesterday our Shake Shack x Game of Thrones collaboration went nationwide!!!
We just logged our 10th flight with the baby (he’s 17 months old but I’ll call him the baby til he’s 18 years) and we finally finalllly really got our groove.
We were “the parents of the inconsolable screaming baby.”
A friend recently asked me if I had any advice for her friend who just had her baby by unplanned c-section, much like I did. Of course, I’ve since thought of more things… but here were my initial immediate thoughts.
I tried several times to write this post, and still now language fails me in trying to adequately put into words this past year or how I feel about my son.
#THISIS40. I’m just getting started.
One of the countless things I love about New York is that nobody blinks an eye whether I’m taking my little babe to the swings, his music class, a gallery event, a brainstorming lunch or a business meeting.
The one thing that’s been consistent for me in the past 8 months of motherhood is all the noise.
Since becoming a mother, a few close mom friends of mine have warned me that babies steal our beauty.
A pretty cover that offers lightweight but full coverage, doesn’t drape over my baby’s face, and allows me to see him – and him to see me.
Last year on Father’s Day I was a week shy of 6 months pregnant. I asked my dad today if being a grandfather was what he imagined it would be a year ago. He said no.
Parenthood inevitably changes your relationship. You are more a team than ever but it’s never been less about the two of you. Which is a new and strange dynamic.
There are only a handful of people I’d travel across the world for — with a seven month old baby! And most of them are pictured here.
While we all check ourselves to keep it “real” why can’t we also share what’s real good, real beautiful, real magical, real amazing about this journey.
As the mother of a boy, I will never tell him makeup is for girls. Or pink is for girls. Or that he can’t use color or texture or any kind of artistry to express himself. Whatever he likes, I’m about.
Becoming a mother makes you look at your own mom in a whole new way.
A month and a half later I put a bathing suit on again. Same one. I felt much better in it this time.
Speaking of breastfeeding, I’ve been noticing a lot of reactions lately.
That photograph inspired our incredibly talented artist friend to create a painting rich in the layers and depth and texture and beauty he saw in our relationship.
Just wanted to clarify that I love being an “older” mom. I was sharing one of the things I’m working on getting better at, but there are countless advantages to being older when you have kids.
This mommy chapter is the greatest and most meaningful one in my story – but as an “older” mom, one thing I’m working on is this feeling of less time.
Six months ago on this evening, after several failed attempts and many setbacks and a full-blown infection and 36 hours at the hospital, I was being wheeled into a surgery I was totally unprepared for.
8 years ago today I left my job as Executive Beauty/Fashion Director and Brand Development Director of Shape magazine to pursue my career on my own two 5” limited edition rosegold Decolette Louboutins.
“Keep your face always toward the sunshine and the shadows will fall behind you.”
On the eve of my baby’s birth 5 months ago, we decided to take him down to the pool tonight, which meant I put on a bathing suit for the first time since having him.
We stand with Dreamers.
“Joy is what happens to us when we allow ourselves to recognize how good things really are.”
What if your “morning sickness” wasn’t sickness at all? What if it was your prenatal vitamins? Turns out, for me, it was.
“The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree: the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other.”
Six years ago today, I met Javi’s dad on the corner of Bowery & Bleeker for a coffee to discuss business.
No words will ever fully express the depth and magnitude and scope of emotions that come with new life…
So nice to have met you! These nine pregnancy-friendly beauty products are going in my post-pregnancy forever rotation because they are that good.
To my husband, then immediate family, then close friends and extended family, then everyone else – how I announced We’re Pregnant!
