Hank does Hawaii

It’s times like these that I’m grateful for this blog. Read: the lazy mom’s way to document milestones, trips…you name it? Reminiscing on our amazingly too short of a trip to Hawaii (quick rundown here in case you missed it). Sun, sand + salt water = nature’s cure for everything!

J. Crew November Picks

How many times have you heard, “I can’t believe it’s November” over the past few days? A valid statement, indeed. My Sunday morning consisted of cozying up with a cup of coffee and flipping through the new J.Crew catalog which left me wanting everything…

Packing list: cape cod
Since moving to San Francisco, I’ve become a pro at taking cross-country flights to visit family and friends. No matter if I’m traveling for a week or a quick weekend, I’ll only take a carry-on bag (a perk of having three sisters & their closets at my disposal). We’ve been looking forward to celebrating our friends’ wedding in the Cape for months and it’s finally here! Yes, I am already packed:

2014 Summer Swimwear

Why not continue the beach-themed posts?Bathing suits 2014
1. Malia Mills: Dying to get my hands on one of these bathing suits: cut and sewn in America (and there’s something for every body type).  SF locals: check out MM at Marin Country Mart where they’ll give you a one-on-one fit session.
2. Eres: While these suits seriously pricey, they’ll last forever. I’m loving this coral one-piece.
3. Solid & Striped: I love this dark navy bikini and olive striped.
4. I’m a big fan of this J.Crew ocean- hued print and Emerson Fry blue and white bikini.
5. L * Space bikinis never fail and I love this “rock the boat” print. It’s reversible too.
6. A twist on a classic black one-piece by Rachel Pally. And if you’re a size 4: a winner.
7. This Fisico- Cristina Ferrari bikini is super flattering and on sale.
8. Melissa Odabash makes the best bikinis and kaftans.
9. In need of a sporty/ athletic suit? Try this Tomas Maier bikini.
10. Let’s be honest we’ve all stalked the photos of Jessica Alba frolicking in this Basta Surf bikini.
