Bumped over to the new @birchbox store at @walgreens in soho and was SO impressed! I went in thinking I’d get my regular drugstore favs and left with arms full of face masks and dry shampoo (they have oodles of full-size products organized by type, and even oodles of sample sizes at the BYOB counter... #heaven). If you’re in the NYC area you NEED TO GO ASAP! It’s worth it! I hit the one at 60 Spring Street, but you can also hit the Financial District and Williamsburg locations too:) #birchboxatwalgreens#ad
PS I’ll be seriously impressed if you can guess which brands I picked!
Georgian friends, can one of you just move in with me so we can eat #khachapuri together all day, every day? For my non-kebab country friends, this is basically the best bread dough ever filled with savory melted cheese and farm-raised eggs. It’s like a pizza boat that’s been kissed by angels. If you’re Georgian, please raise your hand. Or, if you’re in NYC and have a fave khachapuri restaurant, I’m open to suggestions.
Needed to disconnect this weekend from all sorts of external stress, but especially the internal kind (yesterday’s #worldprematurityday really got to me as that’s now a reality I have set in stone for my little one). Asked my hubby to help me cheat on my bed rest Rx by driving me to my fave thinking spot at dawn, and it did wonders for my soul. Fresh air and quiet can help reset the mind, I think. I’m feeling a bit recharged and back in mom-warrior mode, so let’s talk happy things, shall we? Tell me all your favorite baby names — boy, girl, or gender neutral 💕
PS yes, I’m wearing Yossef’s coat — none of mine fit right now 🤷🏻♀️
Pro parenting tip: if 3 out of your 4 kids have birthdays within a few weeks of each other, combine them, and make yourself 87% less crazy! But seriously, Rivkah’s 6th, Avi’s 5th, and David’s 2nd pizza and face painting party was a success. Also, I have no idea how elementary school teachers do this every day. YOU ARE ALL SAINTS. And now I’m off to bed rest!
PS Rivkah’s @pippaandjulie x Disney dress should come in adult sizes bc I want one too
I went to Butterflake in NJ today to pick up some treats for the teens of @newyorkhebrew and discovered CHURROS LAYER CAKES EXIST. Also, I just realized my feed is quickly becoming a tribute page to Mexican desserts. 🍰
PS I didn’t buy it but I plan to fantasize about it for the rest of time
Today was basically insane (i live next to the post office where the latest bombs were found), but there’s good news — @thedoughnutproject partnered with @andazmayakoba.mx on some pretty adorable #DiadelosMuertos doughnuts. They’re pan de muerto flavored (think sweet orange blossom) and have a skull-shaped shortbread cookie on top. 🍪
You can buy them at @thedoughnutproject downtown from Oct 29 - Nov 4, so start saving your calories.
@andazmayakoba.mx is also giving away a 2 night stay, and all you have to do to enter is post a photo of your own Dia doughnut (or regram mine, that’s cool), and include the tags #andazmayakoba and #doughnutproject.
Or, if you just want some doughnuts, tag a few friends in the comments and I’ll invite you over for some freebies. 🍩
Got 3 out of 4 in a pic without pizza all over their faces, ate a giant salad, and didn’t forget my keys, so I’m feeling pretty good about life 🤷🏻♀️💕 ...also, holler if you want to talk about David’s hair routine.
OMG! Did you know @nickelodeon is relaunching Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? Better yet, there's a major #TMNTxAmazon event happening in NYC this week on Wednesday, Oct 10. Most obvious good news ever? I'm partnering with them and bringing my big kids (and the little one in my half shell), because we're all oozing with excitement over this. Can you tell? Now be honest, which turtle is your fave? I'm team Raphael. The event will be at 72 Spring St from 4-8pm and is open to the public, come join us! #ad
Staying in the city this weekend, but deeply missing these scenes from last week in our Woodstock neighborhood. Anyone else obsessed with fresh mountain air? (ps yes, when we are up there the kids are always covered in dirt. Don’t judge.)
