So many beautiful coats this year!!
Holy smokes beauty is good this year! My favorite favorite deodorant (3 pack – split with friends or hoard all year long! // My all time favorite primer, eyeliner (basically you get a free lipgloss with it!), my favorite eyeshadow primer + setting spray + a shadow palette too! // Two favorite scents (Miu Miu and Narciso), Favorite Dry Shampoo, Brow Pencil, and so many great deals like 4 Nars Lips for basically $10 each. ENJOY THIS ONE!!
BABY + GEAR (Dock a Tot is $40 off!) Love these Pebble loungers, thinking about them for our loft!, such great deals on strollers and carseats and I love to stock up on cold weather essentials like these zip up bear suits!
Best of the Nordstrom Sale at home! Marrimekko bedding GALORE! Trying to decide if I might want to entertain some color in my bedroom. Love that #1 or #6 with the striped sheets?? SO cute.
Also dead over this NYC print for a boys’ room. DARLING! $75 and it comes with that decorative pillow, too!
And a few more decor picks!

Currently trying to figure out where the boys are going to school this next year. There is a great charter school that I would drive them to that spends half the day outside gardening, skiing, etc. Or their zoned public school as well! In our new town the bus comes right to our cul-de-sac to take them to the public school a couple cities over. I haven’t confirmed, but I think the bus ride is pretty long, maybe 30-40 minutes each way? It’s so hard when you’re basically choosing your kids’ future for them, how do you decide? Totally stressed but while I mull it over (procrastinate) I came up with this DIY Quiet Time Box that they can bring in their backpack that (hopefully) follows all their bus driver’s rules while we’re at it!For me Post-It® Notes are hands down MY must have back to school supply. You can’t miss them at your local Walmart, just look for the rainbow folder wall and you’re there!I use them like you wouldn’t believe for my own planning at home and work — if it’s not written down it’s not likely getting done — and the way they’re stuck to everything around our house you can tell the adoration is wearing off onto the kids, too! I love how versatile they are for a box like this which relies heavily on my boys’ creativity to make things fun. Here’s what I included!Post-It notes for writing down stories (I love this Super Cube because it has multiple colors in one block!), playing games, or whatever else they need as a base. Add things to glue on like confetti, string, washi tape, fun scissors, a mini stapler, paperclips, embroidery floss for making bracelets or monster hair, a story telling cube, stickers, mints in case of bus sickness, markers and more!It fits perfectly in their backpacks and since neither of them have textbooks to bring home it doesn’t weigh them down too much and hopefully provides some fun for them and their bus-mates.Did any of you grow up with a longer trip to school? Looking for all the personal info you’re willing to share, ha!
Everyone once and awhile I have the craziest craving for Magnolia Bakery’s Banana Pudding. I’ve had it a number of times in their New York City bakeries, but luckily for all of us they released their recipe so we can make it anytime we want!My son Cal loves this dessert and requested it for his birthday party, I figured I better come up with a few swaps to make it a little more kid-party friendly and maybe a little easier to make?I teamed up with Food Club on this zero hesitation because they have a Double Your Money Back Guarantee. If you don’t like any of the products you buy from them, they’ll refund your money and then pay you that same amount from their pocket. WHAT?! These types of guarantees are nearly extinct in 2018 so I was super intrigued to give the brand a try and they’ve been around since 1945 so you can rest easy that can back it all up! You can find a participating store near you with this link!
I swapped out several of the ingredients for Food Club products but here is the recipe from Magnolia’s recipe book!
If you want to see what it looks like plated in a trifle and not for a 7-year-olds birthday, look no further than my friend Christy! Is this not gorgeous??
Beat the Sweetened Condensed Milk with the ice cold water for about a minute. Add the pudding mix powder and continue to beat for about 2 minutes. Put saran wrap flat on the surface of the pudding so it doesn’t harden on the top and refrigerate overnight or minimum of a few hours.
Alternating layers of the Vanilla Cookies, Sliced Bananas, Whipped Cream, Pudding until you fill your desired pan. I love a trifle but for Cal’s birthday I thought it could be fun to spoon the mixture into waffle cones! ! Easier for kids to manage and (fingers crossed) less mess than serving it with plates and forks. He digs it so I guess that’s all that really matters, right? Top with a banana, whipped cream, a Vanilla cookie or all three!
