My baby boy turns 7...

video
I can't believe I have a seven year old! I recently was looking through old pictures and videos when he was younger and remembered a particular phase he went through. Jack would always right notes of protest if he felt he was being wronged. The hubby and I would get such a laugh, check out these two videos from January 2009, Jack had just turned four.

In the first video Jack overhears me making a dentist appointment for him and this is what I find him doing.

In the second video Jack has had enough of his daddy changing the channel from his kid show to sports(the obnoxious cough is Salma, she was sick).

Stella's little Project...

Back in the day Jack entered a drawing contest and won this tee. It just arrived and the packaging was super cute and they threw in stickers. Love Stella McCartney Kids.

Back to nature...

This past Sunday in The New York Times, front page, the topic, Waldorf Education, cultivating a lifelong love of learning through real experiences. Three hours a day are spent outside, rain or shine. My sons pre-school teacher took the children out a few times a day, I thought she was crazy dealing with all snow suits and boots but Jack really did enjoy that experience. Salma's class is walking to the library this week,  maybe I should hope for rain?

Cozy up to this...

Everyone in my household owns one of these infinity scarves. Winter just wouldn't be the same without one. They come from Brooklyn based designer, Brandi Flournoy of Brand New Knits. They are like wrapping a cloud around your neck, super cozy and keeps you toasty warm. I just ordered a bunch for holiday gifts!

Beauty Lounge...


Love this and when is it coming to New York?! Blushington just opened up in West Hollywood and just like the Blow Out bars that simply do blowouts for your hair, this beauty lounge simply does your makeup. There are a variety of looks to choose from and the price is right!

Beauty must-haves...

These are two items I am never without, Aquaphor and Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate. The Aquaphor I use for everything, lips, hands, feet, you name it! Aquaphor is the reason my kiddies never, and I mean NEVER had diaper rash(I swear). The Kiehl's serum really is a miracle, you slather this on at bedtime, wake up and your face feels brand new, silky soft and no pillow marks(don't ask me how that happens). The weather is starting to change, the air is dryer, the months are getting colder so be ready.

Instant update...

Found this on Glitter Guide
I love this idea of painting old furniture, I did this with a tiny chest in Salma's room (it was a mustard yellow that I changed to Tiffany blue). I have this over sized coffee table (vintage Crate & Barrel) that I want to paint, but what color?
