Who: As in, who am I listening to.
Passion Pit, Lifted Up. That high-pitched magic is back on Angelakos' third album, Kindred. Perfect for spring, windows rolled down, driving. Cause we could all use a little lifting after the winter we endured.
What: As in, what went down this week/end.
Busy weekend hosting friends, planning for baby, and planning for some vacation time, so very much needed!
We hosted friends for a dinner party, cooked up some spinach pies (I love this recipe from Ina) and pretty proud I butterflied a leg of lamb on my own. Stuffed it with herbs and date, roasted to perfection. Even I, and all my meat aversions, could manage a few bites.
Trying to make headway on nursery #2, though it has been slow going. How do you manage it when baby #1 is still pretty active with your original nursery set up? Move to a big girl bed? What about a glider? I feel like Daphne is going to have enough change when the new baby comes but I refuse to purchase another glider, no matter how attached Daphne is to hers.
I also had the chance to try out a spa facial from Clarins at Bloomingdales. It was so very much needed after a month of colds, stomach flus, and family + pet drama. For a blissful hour, I was able to erase all the stress and indulge in all the Clarins products I love so dearly (check here for my entire spring beauty round up). The spa at Bloomingdales is almost a secret space, tucked just off the main beauty sales floor. You'll quickly forget where you are and just appreciate the pampering. The Clarins specialist quickly adapted everything to my pregnancy needs and ever changing hormonal skin- thank you! Be sure to check it out next time you make it to Chestnut Hill. They are still running a promotion for 25% off now.
Where: As in, where it's at. Launches, events, general goings on you need to know about.
Shop new, very cool site, Shop Pyramid. Designers you need to know about: Rodebjer (will I ever learn to pronounce this?!) and Studio Nicolson being on the short list. Check it. Shop it. Love it.
Skinner Auctioneers is hosting an amazing online only jewelry auction this week, with oodles of Chanel, Hermes and Cartier. I'll be keeping my eye on the Chanel perfume bottle bag donated by none other than Gisele Bundchen to benefit REACH Beyond Domestic Violence.
Chantecaille's global artist Fernando Cadavid makes an in store appearance at Neiman Marcus, Friday May 1st. Great excuse to get your make up done and plan a dinner date with your significant other!
