February Faves

Hi all! I’m back after a crazy busy month to share with you my faves for the months of Feb.

Shadow Couture World Traveler Palette by Anastasia Beverly Hills– Ok, I was standing in Urban Outfitters in Times Square, hemming and hawing over an endless amount of eye shadow options. It was my first shopping outing after having the baby, and I was enticed by all of the shimmery, beautiful colors. A girl next to me picked up the shadow palette I was eyeing and couldn’t stop squealing from excitement that she had found it. “I’ve been looking EVERYWHERE for this!” she cried. Low and behold, it was the World Traveler Palette. Of course, I bought it. Her enthusiasm was so intense, I figured this palette must be the Valentino’s of eye shadow.

She was right- I soon came to find myself experimenting with all of the incredible colors- ranging from light peach to intense blue, and everything in between. The pigment in the shadow is absolutely incredible, and it lasts through many vodka-soda-lime nights.

I paid $39 for the palette and it’s going for over $100 on Ebay, apparently it is a limited edition. If you can get your hands on this shadow palette, it’s totally worth it!

Sage Spoonfuls– For all of you mamas out there that intend to make your own baby food, I cannot say enough about Sage Spoonfuls! There is little information for new moms on how to feed your baby solid foods, what foods to try, etc.

I was delighted to receive the SS for my baby shower. Liza Huber created a beautiful book outlining what foods to feed baby as well as when to buy organic. Delicious and easy recipes (and some great unexpected food combos that baby will LOVE), plus awesome food jars that are stackable and so easy to travel with! I love the blender it comes with…it is much easier to use than a regular blender.

This makes a great gift for any mom-to-be! You can buy it at Target.

tsamma-watermelon-juice-high-res

Tsamma Juice– As a runner, I  am always looking for a refreshing juice that is packed with nutrients, tastes great, and keeps me hydrated. I love Tsamma watermelon juice because it fuels my body with electrolytes and there’s no added sugar! Believe it or not, there are over 1 1/2 lbs of watermelon cold-pressed and pasteurized in each bottle. You can buy it at the Fresh Market or online.

Thanks for stopping by the blog! I hope everyone had a wonderful February!

January’s Favorite Things

I am a lover of all things new; new products land at my door each day and I’m like a kid in a candy store. An overly excited guinea pig, if you will. While I’m more of a fashion blogger, I also love to review items and share my FAVES with my followers. Because what gal doesn’t love a good recommendation?

I have lots of favorite things…so I have decided to write a monthly blog post with my latest and greatest obsessions. Be it the latest mommy products (which seem to take up most of my current budget) to new, innovative brands, I’ll be collecting the best of the best and bringing them to you.

One other note- I am a HUGE proponent of small businesses and their products. If you are interested in me reviewing and featuring your product, feel free to reach out to me at lala_styled@mail.com.

kali 4

Kali Boxes– The organic era is upon us, and I am a huge believer in using pesticide free products. I was SO excited when my good friends and entrepreneurs Jonna Piira and Sara Shake came up with the revolutionary idea to create a monthly box of organic tampons. Not only do you receive the monthly box on autoship (and save those embarrassing moments of checking out with a box of those suckers at the grocery), but you also have the peace of mind knowing you are using ORGANIC. And, for an easy $25, you get the ‘pons, wipettes, and a fun product they change every month or so. This month it’s a gorgeous rosewater refresher spray. Kali is also socially conscience and donates $1 from every box sold to  Girl Up, the United Nations Foundation’s Adolescent Girl Campaign. How amazing is that?! Ladies, do your body a favor and sign up here. You’ll get $5 off your first box with code “ilovekali”.

coco

COCO Cocktail– If you LOVE coconut water like me and if you love an adult beverage like me, you will love that they have combined the two into a perfect tropical concoction. Meet COCO Cocktail, your new refreshing party favorite! It’s a convenient ready-to-drink beverage that offers only the highest quality ingredients. So rest assured, while you get a buzz, you’re also hydrating! COCO Cocktail is available at select WHOLE FOODS and Fresh Markets. For more information, check out their website.

joovy

The JOOVY SPOONAs a new mommy of a 7 month old spirited little boy, I was looking for the perfect walker. Not only does my little tot LOVE to move, but we are also very big into traveling and wanted something we could easily take with us. We were on a New Year’s trip to visit good friends when I discovered the JOOVY. It’s got a super sleek, modern design, and it’s easily foldable (and adjustable for height). But the best part is, it also doubles as a highchair! Easy storage, easy cleaning, and double functions make it a win-win for this traveling mama. BONUS: the padded seat is easily machine washable and this was a cinch to put together (much needed for this working mama!). Check out Joovy’s website here.

I hope you enjoyed this month’s favorite things! Stay tuned for February!

XOXO,
