My Way:

my way

Back to something a bit more neutral, in anticipation of this week’s meetings (darker shades tend to chip more easily and surely wouldn’t last me without a touchup until the end of the week).  Essie’s My Way is a great pale and sheer option.  Because I tend to coordinate my manicure and pedicure color, although rarely going the matchy matchy route, I opted for this deep plum shade, Recessionista, for my toes.

Outdoor Fun:

All of you parents out there know it’s quite glorious when your child can play with something for hours on end, occupying him/herself.  This Step 2 Sand and Water Table  is exactly that.   It’s the perfect activity if you don’t want your kid to go swimming in the pool (read that as you having to go swimming in the pool too), and likewise if you don’t have a pool.  This under $80 toy is super simple and easy to put together.  All you need is a few cups of water and you’re good to go.  It’s fun for the kids to add Lego people or any other characters to the mix.  Oh, you don’t need to empty the water each day either.  Just put the bungeed cover on top and you’re good to go!

Bobbing For Baubles:

I’ve had pale shades on my nails for the past couple of weeks, in anticipation of all the unpacking I’d be doing.  And I was right.  A couple weeks later and I’m ready for some deep saturation on my nails- something unexpected.  Essie’s Bobbing For Baubles isn’t a new one, but it’s a good one.  I’ve been using it here and there for a couple of years, but can already tell it’s going to be a staple.

Neutral Sunnies:



Sunnies are some of my favorite accessories.  Just as I pick out my bag and shoes daily (and finally have the space to see everything!), I carefully select my sunglasses.  This pair from Oliver Peoples has re-become one of my favorites.  They’re neutral, light, and go with absolutely everything–especially this navy/grey/white/gold ensemble.  I also am lusting over  this grey version.

Mama Mio:

Not sure whether I could live without these products or not, but what I do know is that I’m glad I don’t have to!  I used Mama Mio’s Pregnancy Boob Tube (can’t help but laugh at the name) and Tummy Rub Butter  throughout my entire pregnancy with Colette and was very happy with the end results.  Both creams are soothing, cooling and super-elasticizes skin.  It’s safe to use up to a few times a day (it’s sort of addicting) and is recommended to use even after you have the baby.  To all the mamas-to-be out there, these products aren’t the cheapest, but they’ve proven to be well worth it!
