Pink is in the air! Gorgeous sunrises, cherry blossoms, and illuminating Guerlain Météorites Pearls are a few of my favorite pink things. From the glamorous etched tin which is a work of art in itself to the pretty pink-hued pearls nestled on the inside, the Meteorites are my absolute must-have item for welcoming warm breezes. Whether I’m looking for that finishing touch to perfect a look and boost radiance or want a subtle flush to highlight cheekbones, I always reach for the versatile pearls. Guerlain’s stardust technology refracts light to create a “halo” effect, a.k.a. that perfect glow around skin! Another little side effect of the powder is that it does a magnificent job hiding some of my larger pores (in my case, around my nose). I use a large soft brush to apply it to accent my cheekbones, then do a quick dusting all over to achieve a dewy look. It evens out my skin tone and leaves a faint floral and feminine scent which doesn’t last long, but is a sweet touch with application.

It’s been just a couple weeks since we brought home a baby boy, and in my discombobulated and sleepy state, all I know is that every day down feels like a victory! I am so grateful for the little things, like a stolen nap here and there, chocolates sent from a sweet girlfriend, and encouragement from veteran mothers. I also never dreamed I could love and depend on a bra so much, specifically the life-saving T-shirt Bra by Swedish company Boob. The package was waiting for me as soon as I arrived home from the hospital, so I immediately switched to the super-comfy bra. Since then, I have only taken it off to wash it! Since keeping the little guy satiated requires feedings every 2-3 hours, quick access is paramount and comfort is a must as I fall asleep wearing it. Once I start returning to the “real world” and wearing something besides maternity clothes, I wanted a bra which gave me some shape and smooth contours, and this fit the bill perfectly. The T-shirt bra comes with removable pads and just in case, the size can be extended with the hook-and-eye ribbon. There’s no uncomfortable underwire but it is still firmly supportive. The fastening is extra wide (4 rows of hooks) so it doesn’t dig into skin. Just when I thought it couldn’t get better, the fabulous people at Boob have created the bra from recycled polyamide, making it a green option!
I never would have guessed that I would ever put a toothbrush in the same category as, say, a luxury car, but that is precisely the analogy I made to my hubby after I tried the elegant Philips Sonicare DiamondClean toothbrush. The actual brushing movement feels light years more advanced that my several-generations-old Sonicare, with efficient and smooth vibration which glides over my teeth. The brush works efficiently to rid teeth of staining elements as well as cavity-causing plaque to reveal clean pearly whites. The gentle buzz of the brush is punctuated by subtle beeps every thirty seconds to ensure that I cover all the surfaces adequately, which works well to make sure my impatient nature doesn’t short change my teeth (saving time in the dental chair!). After a use in the normal “clean” mode, my teeth feel like they just made a trip to the hygienist, and my gums are healthy as well.
