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.)
REAL TALK: I already told you I'm pregnant, but what I didn't share was why I left my last job heading up a bridal and women's lifestyle publication. I suppose I didn't heed the warning of my peers and colleagues when they told me of their riddled pasts with this company. Unfortunately, after months of being prohibited from publishing anything that might be "too Jewish" and being told to stop complaining about it because it was inconvenient, only days after management got wind of my pregnancy, the man in charge kicked me to the curb (which wasn't what anyone might expect from a self-proclaimed "girl power" publisher). It was a shame, because I had met every expectation, over-achieved in performance reviews, hit new traffic highs for the publication in my control, and brought in never-before-seen press and celebrity acclaim for the company -- but as most women know, merit is often not enough to keep a job.
Don't worry though, friends! I'm still writing up a storm for other outlets, filming, and growing a very special creative endeavor in my womb. I'm sharing this because you may relate or see it drawn out in a more public way soon enough, and I wanted you to hear it from me first.
Here's to strong women. May we know them, may we be them, may we raise them.
I have a tiny Manhattan kitchen and it’s currently brimming with dozens of round challah loaves in anticipation of #RoshHashana. This year’s varieties include standard plain, sesame, cinnamon streusel, raisin, and my personal fave — CHOCOLATE CHIP! (Yes, that’s chocolate chip you’re looking at.) Wishing everyone out there all the sweetness, success, and health in the world for this new year! 🍎 🍯
PS be a sport and comment with something positive happening in your life right now. Your happiness = my happiness, and I’d love to share some joy with you!
As of last week, we have been married 7(!) years, which is basically nuts 🥜. In an effort to keep things fresh, we do a lot of weird stuff, like this week, we are communicating mostly in music videos... and we are competitive, obvi. Even with his limited English he may be winning this one. Anyone else on team Weird Relationship Games?
Here’s a secret: nothing on the planet — diy remedies, western medicine, or otherwise — has ever made my body feel quite as healthy as the Dead Sea. I know it’s not a miracle for everyone, but for me it definitely is. Feeling kind sick-ish today so I’m looking at pics of the last time we were there! Missing Israel 🇮🇱 .🌴Brb as I barf 🤢.
Some days I think about running away from #NYC — starting over somewhere else with the hubs and kids, but on days like today, I remember why I stay put with all 4 munchkins in the heart of #Midtown. My biggest was crossing the street and refused to hold my hand (wahhhh!), so I asked why. “Mommy, I’m from the city, I’ve already seen everything weird and gross and bad. I’m not afraid of anything.” I guess that’s good, right?
I took a solid 2.5 hour nap today (hello, best thing that’s happened to me in recent memory), and spent almost that whole time having wild fantasy-style dreams of chocolate babka pie. Like, smutty delish dreams of chocolate and flaky layers of carbs. I didn’t want to wake up, and thank @daniellezpraport for introducing me to this wonder a couple years ago at a @breadsbakery baking class. Also, am I the only one who dreams about food? Tell me your dirtiest carb-laden secrets.
It’s about 1,000 degrees and 800% humidity in #NYC today, and I’m missing my mountain oasis in the #catskills like you can’t believe ...especially the access to toasty smores 🔥 am I the only one melting in today’s heat?! Tell me I’m not alone.
I haven’t eaten any meat in what seems like forever (I’m not usually a meat person, and just got through a long holiday that involved nonstop smoothies), but today I was prob low on iron or something and went kebab-wild. Also, my breath smells like raw red onions right now so you probably don’t want to be my friend IRL. Comment if you want my kebab recipe, bc as your Sephardi friend, that’s basically my top selling point.
