Life Lately: Volume 9

Pink Donuts

Happy Friday, friends! What a week we’ve had. On Monday, I shared our big news and was floored by your loving responses. Anel and I want to say again just how much we appreciate your support and kind words. They truly mean the world to us. We had a busy week, but I took a break on Wednesday to walk on the beach with Boots and some friends to enjoy the beautiful 60 degree day. That was followed up by a major snowstorm yesterday that hit us hard. Anel stayed home from work, so we had a fun, cozy snow day which made it a little more bearable. All I have to say is I can’t wait to be in Florida (the Zika-free part, don’t worry) next week!

From around the web

Marriage Advice from Divorced Men: My friend Micaela interviewed nine divorced men for Woman’s Day, to give their one piece of pre-marriage advice to newbies. The advice was spot on, IMO, and not what I expected! Read the article.

Obama’s Kitesurfing Adventures: I love the response to all the photos of Obama kitesurfing with Richard Branson. He looks so happy!

J.Crew Valentine’s Day Sale: Valentine’s Day sales are heating up, and J.Crew’s is pretty great! Save 25% with code HEARTYOU (and 30% if you spend $150+). There are so many great new arrivals like this bell sleeved top ($44 on sale) the Lady Jacket with Liberty Trim which I’m dying for (Under $150 on sale), and a super cute striped body suit ($33 on sale)… not that I’ll be wearing body suits anytime soon! Shop the sale.

February Reading List: Grace’s monthly reading list is back! I’m ordering The Dollhouse for my vacation next week. Read the list.

Colorful Cover Up: Next week, Anel and I are headed to (Zika-free!) Sarasota, and I finally pulled the trigger and bought this colorful pom pom cover up. I can’t wait to wear it on the beach! Now let’s just pray for warm weather… Shop it here.

$30/Week at Whole Foods: I love this Bon App article that asks four home chefs how they would spend $30/week at Whole Foods. Read the article.

George and Amal’s Big News: ICYMI, Amal Clooney is reportedly pregnant with twins! First Beyoncé stole my thunder, now George too… What’s a prego to do? (Kidding, I’m happy for both couples, obviously!)

Winter Blues: My current favorite winter coat (love the shade of light blue) is on major sale! See how I wore it here and shop it here.

Pregnancy Apps: A reader sent me this article on the best pregnancy apps! I definitely downloaded a few in addition to The Bump App which I’ve been using since the beginning.

Jumpsuit. This striped jumpsuit is everything. I wonder if I could fit it over the bump.

Spice Things Up: I love this visual guide to spice combos to help you season your food like a champ from Greatist.

Currently Reading: Last week I finished The Perfume Collector, which I loved. It was one of those books that I didn’t want to ever end! Luckily, I had a copy of A Separation ready to go, and started it the next night. It’s a fast read and I’m about halfway through and loving it. It’s a story of a woman who travels to Greece to find her missing estranged husband… There’s a little mystery, a little love, and a beautiful setting! Buy the book.
