Books, Mom & KidsBook Review: When Lyla Got Lost


It’s hard to think about my little girl growing up sometimes, and realizing that loving her so much also makes me want to protect her as much as possible. Now that she’s becoming more independent, I absolutely want her to know what to do if she ever finds herself separated from us. The new book launching today, When Lyla Got Lost (and Found) is a perfect way to introduce precautionary measure to a child without scaring them. The book is simple enough for a 3-year-old to understand, but the message is pertinent for older children as well. The watercolor illustrations are endearing and cute- and they certainly engaged my munchkin. Moms can all relate to that split second where something shiny or bouncy takes the attention of a little one, and suddenly they are out of sight! Lyla’s experience provides peace of mind for both parents and children, so a happy (and relieved) reunion can take place.

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

I could hardly wait to put my fork down before starting to write about my inaugural Sakara Life meal delivery! The freshness, flavor, and convenience make a healthy meal at home or at the office not only accessible but a pleasure. Sakara Life was founded three years ago by two beautiful ladies who have devoted their lives to holistic nutrition in order to provide a healthy and convenient organic meal delivery solution for people ready to take control of their well-being. My healthy-eating Monday started with the Rolled Oat and Pecan Bar, which was surprisingly filling and healthy, and had me prepped for lunchtime. The Yin & Yang Nori Rolls were fresh and tasty- I love sushi even in vegetarian form, and was happy to have my craving satisfied for this week. The rolls were served with a sizeable salad for which I need to find the recipe for that delish dressing! For dinner, I (generously) shared some of the veggie Sakara Cobb Salad with my husband, who happens to think meat is a necessary part of every meal, but even he loved the salad. With Bobby Flay on the board of advisors, Sakara is set apart from other meal delivery services that focus on health but not taste!

Nails, SkincareMother’s Day: Spoil Her Hands

Molton-Brown-Coco-Sandalwood-Hand-Cream_KTD067_XLI’ve learned firsthand that as a mom, my hands go through major manual labor- from washing bottles to folding laundry, to the point of cracking and rough skin. So when I was brainstorming gifts for my mom, I decided it was high time to treat her hard-working hands to some extra TLC with replenishment and fresh nail color to reward them for making it through the toughest and often thankless tasks.

My Molton Brown Coco & Sandalwood Replenishing Hand Cream and I have been inseparable for weeks since my hands won’t let the tube get out of sight. The fresh scent has a touch of the tropics mixed in to remind me of summer travels to come. Amino acids and minerals effectively moisturize, and I find the thicker texture is more satisfying than so many runny lotions. The size is great since it’s compact and light enough to throw into any size bag and go! The light fragrance reminds me of an exotic white sand beach, a daydream any mom can indulge in.


Gift Guides, Mom & KidsBaby Fun with Applepark

Beauty, HairSummer With Fekkai


Other than a few bad days, we’ve been seriously blessed weather-wise here in Los Angeles lately.  (A fact that I’ve definitely lorded over my east coast friends and family!)  But the summer weather also means that it’s been time to switch over to summer products (crazy, right?).  For the past few weeks, I’ve been testing out three items from the Fekkai Soleil Collection and they’re all fabulous additions to my hair routine.

The collection was inspired by the chic summer hair of St. Barths (and who can argue with that?)  It was created to capture the nourishment of the sun and make your hair healthy and shiny even after your time outdoors, and as someone who is completely anal about sunscreen on my face and body, I love this.

The Pre-Soleil Hair Mist gets spritzed onto your hair before you head outside as step one of the system.  It’s fortified with amino acids and creates a shield on your locks to help prevent your color from fading.  Love this idea.  I actually darken my hair (unlike 95% of women in L.A.) and believe it or not, the color doesn’t last nearly as long as you would think, so I really like knowing that while I’m on a long hike, my (expensive!) color is getting as much protection as everywhere else on my body.
