We like our glasses in this family. Clearly (pun intended), we do. Spectacles are not so cheap and even when you find the perfect frame, $100 is about as reasonable as they come Rx wise. Until(!!!!) Until until untillllll....sweet Jordan over at Ramshackle Glam divulged her secret place to buy these puppies: Zenni Optical. $12.95 for the perfect pair of new tortoise glasses? Thank you, Jordan! The post Christmas lottery has been won. FELIZ NAVIDAD TO ME. (And....I'm off to JCrew at the TimeWarnerCenter to press today's good luck on the alpha shopper front;)
During my bachelorette party wknd in SF/Napa last November, my girlfriends and I stummbled upon this amazing little jewelry boutique called Jest Jewels. At the time I had been on the hunt for the perfect pair of big gold hoops (as directed by my go to style galpal, Kristin) that were delicate and super thin...and they had them! Statement necklaces galore and all the "as seen in" jewelry you could possibly want (for a reasonable price, to boot!). Flash foward to this past week when crusing the streets of SF with Lee and we happened to be on the same street again. This time, I've been searching for a medium sized pair of "diamond" hoops....and they had them. The exact pair I wanted. For $25. I win. I dont know why I get such pleasure out of a simple find like this but because of it I will now always check Jest Jewels when looking for a specific piece. Bound to have it :)
Moving forward...I've started to make myself green juices for breakfast every morning. I mean, what else am I doing with this top of the line immersion blender anyways?? They arent that gross and when I tell you I feel energized through the most dreaded part of the day (1-3pm) without needing/wanting a cup of coffee, I consider it a huge accomplishment. My favorite blend is this with pictoral evidence of the finished product from this morning:
*1 cup unsweetened almond milk
*1/2 cup nonfat greek yogurt
*big handful of organic spinich
*handful of organic blueberries
*1 tbsp ground flaxseed meal
*2 ice cubes
......Dont knock it til you try it out for a week.
And finally, I need to take a moment to say how much I love New York. I've been on the grumbly grumpy side of the discussion about this city of mine for the past few months, bitching and complaining about our lack of space, the cost of our small space, inability to have fresh air and trees and good salt of the earth people around. And then we've had a few weekends away in different cities and Ive returned with a renewed sense of appreciation. For what is at our fingertips and for the pulse that this urban lifestyle brings to me and our family of 2, I am back to saying thanks.
Sarah: one part of a family of THREE with my husband Lee and sweet girl Morgan, simply wanting to chronicle the path I'm on and the path that will come to be. For now it's NYC urban mamaville where everyday is a new adventure! (Actually, just getting to the post office is an adventure.)
