goop - What to Wear Now That You’re the “Outdoorsy” Type. Finding yourself outside a whole lot more? Here are some outfit ideas for looking good while breaking a sweat.

National Geographic - Here’s hot to stop the virus from winning. The only reason we have been able to “open” back up on the East Coast is because we all spent three months in quarantine. The masks and the distance MUST continue through the summer to prevent another major quarantine this Fall.

Architectural Digest - I call this kitchen porn. Love the mix of open shelving and cabinets. Feels like a happy median that would save my marriage LOL.

Harper’s Bazaar - Keedron Bryant - “The 12-year-old “I Just Wanna Live” singer, who recently signed with Warner Records, opens up about fighting racial injustice, getting name-checked by President Obama, and why making music gives him hope”.

Elle - Everything You Need To Know About The Newly Formed Black In Fashion Council.

watch - Knives Out - Frank put this on the other night (after seeing it got a 97% on rotten tomatoes) and it was really good! Murder mystery with a twist - a film you can’t stop watching until the end. Highly recommend!

landscape - we’ve been going back and forth on what to do in our back yard. At the beginning of Spring I made a case for a “French courtyard vibe” using pea stone gravel and a bistro set. Our back yard is very tiny so the thought of losing almost all the grass has had me a touch concerned and I haven’t been able to fully commit! Click here for some beautiful inspo I stumbled upon during one of my many late night google seshes.

clean - Linking this again because I’ve received so many questions recently! Here is the power washer we used. Before and after post coming soon to the blog!

dress - Found this little black Ulla Johnson dress on sale and I love it! It’s the perfect mix of sweet and chic for summer and you can wear it into Fall.

bake - I know its Summer and not really baking season anymore but I can’t help but look at my overly ripe bananas and think banana bread. Can’t remember if I’ve shared this one on my blog yet so here it is - the best banana bread, ever.

shorts - The under $60 shorts I can’t stop wearing.

make this

I love Chef Chloe’s food. I honestly never knew food could taste this good. Vegan or not, her flavors and her creativity are unlike anything I’ve ever experienced in a meal. Last year I was lucky enough to attend a five-course lunch created by her and Jean Goerges at the Inn at Pound Ridge - it was heaven. I don’t think I’ve ever been able to eat EVERYTHING on a menu so this was a real treat. I can’t wait until she opens ip something more permanent in NYC! Here is her recipe for banana bread!

practice this

It is supposed to take 21 days to form a habit of low to medium complexity, so start applying sunscreen every morning and wearing a hat when appropriate to get ready for summer sun. Here is an article featuring some of the best natural products on the market for sun. This one was our family favorite last summer! Also love wearing this tinted sunscreen during warm weather months.

read this

40 things in 40 years. This piece is a must read. My biggest takeaway was this line: Real wealth is health. That rings so true for me especially after becoming a mom. I also loved numbers four and sixteen (“F” luck!). The whole thing is SPOT ON.

get this

I tried this basic white tee last week and thought it was great. Both the short boxier version and the classic were a great fit. The fabric is really soft and you can’t beat the $30 price tag!

design this

I’m almost finished with the boy’s bedroom. Hehe! It’s not easy! I’ve been drawing a lot of inspiration from online but its so tough to commit because there is so much that I love! Check out actress Lucy Liu’s playroom. She uses kid friendly colors in neutral tones for a more laid back vibe. Here’s a sneak peak at the nightstand I ordered for between their beds!

eat this

I’ve been on a bit of a smoothie kick recently. Breakfast is my JAM. I like every meal but I really enjoy eating well in the morning. I used to be a huge fan of eggs because I thought they were the most filling option but at a recent doctor’s appointment I let it slip how often I was eating them - no bueno! Apparently 5 days a week is not great for your cholesterol. Who knew?! So I set out to find something just as simple to make and more importantly just as satisfying.

I always wanted to be a smoothie girl but they overwhelmed me. You always have to have your fridge stocked with fruits and greens and then there is the issue of cleaning the blender. I could never get it right and after all that, it didn’t even taste that great. I probably should write a post about this but in walks Sakara. I’ve been using their life source packets and I’m addicted. I first ordered the 10 day box a month after giving birth to Luke. What I love about it is it has a longer shelf life than the food in a traditional cleanse/meal plan so you can space things out and do it on your own time. Also this is the blender that we have and its so easy to use/clean! Use code girlguide25 for 25% off your 10 day reset box.
