A SERIES OF THINGS TO GET YOU CLOSER TO HAVING THAT JE NE SAIS QUOI

My Favorite Five Oct 20 '14

1_ NESTING is certainly what I'm doing at 33 weeks pregnant. The maternal instincts have kicked in and I'm making a cozy, comfortable place for the baby to be. In Brooklyn, even tho it's a little roomier than Manhattan, savy space saving skills are still required. I have searched all over for furniture from antiques to crate & barrel, but Ikea still rules when it comes to space saving furniture. The

HENNES 

shoe cabinet actually looks nice/ grown up and is perfect for some quick storage by the doorway for things like winter accessories as we head out with our winter baby.

FADING GIGOLO

needs to move to the top of your moving watching list, pronto. If you did not see it in theaters this past summer, Autumn is even more apropos. I don't want to spoil the plot but I fell in love with John Turturro after watching this. It's the kind of movie you wish would never end.

CAPES

is what I discovered this week. As I head into the home stretch with an already big and still growing bump I had to figure out how to face the elements, stylishly. I used to not like capes so much because I thought they made me look pregnant. But when you are pregnant - they look really cute over the bump!

SPACE ODDITY

is rocking my world right now. I wake up singing it. Maybe it's because so many people reference babies moving in your stomach to aliens. In some ways it is very "alien", but more than that it truly is one of the sweetest feelings in the entire world. In any case, David Bowie rules.

BABY FURNITURE

doesn't have to be so baby. I love this item from Pottery Barn Kids (and I didn't know I liked stuff from Pottery barn ?!?!) I love the open design for items pretty enough to display along with drawer space. Great Concept.
