How’s everybody doing this week? I know many of you lost power and some still don’t have it back in the Northeast so I’m really hoping it’s restored ASAP for those of you without it. We had a busy work week and I started working out again, finally, which honestly feels really good, I can’t believe I’m saying that. I never thought about how physical it is taking care of a baby, does that sound ridiculous? Carrying around a 20 lb baby was wreaking havoc on my back and neck, coupled with diastasis recti which wasn’t helping, I knew I needed to work on my strength. Now my whole body hurts, but it’s the good kind of sore, haha. Secretly hoping for a rainy day this weekend because I’d love to curl up on the couch and watch a movie. Any good new shows or movies you guys are loving?

Love this green utility jacket from Outerknown for fall.
One of my favorite parts of my morning ritual is doing the NY Times mini crossword puzzle. It’s not that hard and it also gets my brain moving in the morning. (C)
These blistered stuffed cheese-y peppers are the summer side you didn’t know you needed.
I love this new papaya enzyme cleansing balm from Glow Recipe. It’s so good at getting makeup/sunscreen off without making skin feel dry and stripped. It’s like a cleanser and treatment in one. (J)
Her masks are my favorite, they fit really well and they’re reversible.
Julia connected me with her husband Anel after I posted about Diastasis Recti. I jumped on a video call and he gave me these exercises to do which have been so helpful. It was something my doctor never even discussed with me and I discovered through searching my symptoms but it’s quite common in postpartum women. (J)
This story is a gripping look into the controversial and (frankly) corrupt lifeguard corp in New York City.
With a backyard space this luxurious looking, who even needs to go inside? So many beautiful, accessible ideas.
