Hello, Friday Favorites. It’s been a while.
The North Face jacket and booties:
I’m actually looking forward to going down to McCall and seeing the snow thanks to these puppies. The booties are crazy-comfortable and the jacket is fitted so it’s not dumpy looking (which is easy to happen on a short and not-stick-thin girl like me with a puffy coat). And warm.
I was blessed with long and thick eyelashes thanks to the mom. I don’t normally wear mascara, but when I do, this is my go-to nowadays. It’s not too thick and it doesn’t clump at all. It’s clean and puts out just the right amount of oomph.
When I wear perfume, I usually feel super self conscious like everyone can smell me from miles away. With this set, the scent is subtle and perfect. It doesn’t attack and the “warm laundry?” It seriously smells like laundry that has just been taken out of the dryer. I like.
Freshly Picked keepall bag:
I received this for Christmas and I’m currently carrying around some nursing pads, healing balm, L’Occitane hand cream and Mustela face wipes in it. The leather is SO soft and it’s a perfect size.
Lalabu soothe shirt:
I’m so glad I took the plunge and ordered a soothe shirt. It fits snugly so I don’t have to wear a cami under it (I wear a cami every single day). It’s easy to use while nursing and Franci fits in the pocket tight enough that I can wear her in it while grocery shopping and it’s a godsend. Every new mama needs this.
Alison’s Cookie Party
I’ve always wanted to know how to flood cookies. Oh, sorry, that means cover the entire cookie in a thin and smooth layer of frosting in the biz. Because I’m totally in the biz now thanks to Alison’s Cookie Party. In this online course, she gives her recipe for both cookies and frosting and does the entire process on video so you can actually see how it all comes together. Super helpful.
And that’s it for now. New moms have little time for favorite things that don’t revolve around their nipples, their baby’s poop or clothes that don’t make them still look 6 months pregnant. So I’m signing off.
