I had a ton of info and recommendations and products that I planned to include in this post, and then I read my post about starting solids with Georgie, and realized that it’s basically all the same! There are a few changes this time around which I’ll detail, plus it’s fun to put things here purely for the purpose of documentation and being able to look back. So here we go!
Here are a few things I’m into these days:
Tony’s Chocolonely // I went grocery shopping on a somewhat empty stomach last night, so of course I impulse bought three bars of chocolate as I was checking out. (To be fair, the packaging is amazing and I am such a sucker for cute marketing.) I bought dark almond sea salt, milk chocolate and milk caramel sea salt. The brand is Dutch and 100% fair trade with a truly impressive impact, and oh my goodness it’s heaven in a chocolate bar. It’s thick and creamy and just so delicious. Tom took one bite of the caramel bar and said, ‘Wow. This is chocolate crack.’
Armchair Expert // I love a good podcast, and Armchair Expert is a new-ish, somewhat surprising favorite. It’s hosted by Dax Shepard, who is smart and hilarious and asks great questions. So far I have loved the episodes with Kaitlin Olson, Zack Braff, Kristin Bell, Lauren Graham and David Harbour.
Kristin Ess The One Shampoo & Signature Conditioner // I never blow dry my hair, so with the summertime humidity, sometimes stepping outside with freshly washed hair ends in total frizzy disaster. I really have to rely on a good array of hair products to help me out. I recently ordered the Kristin Ess shampoo and conditioner from Target and I absolutely love it. It looks fancy but is $10 a bottle (!), and it works magic wonders on my hair. It gets it squeaky clean and soft but somehow manages to totally reduce summertime puffiness and frizz. I would also love to try this moisture mask.
