9 mom swimsuit bodies — Which one are you?

9 mom swimsuit bodies — Which one are you?

Hey Mamas, it’s time to dig out that suit from the bottom of your drawer and show off what years of pregnancy and Nutella have tried to destroy. Oh, yes, it’s the parade of summer mom bodies. So sunscreen those cankles! Air out that muffin top! Clear-cut the crotch forrest! And maybe try to squeeze in a spinning class before heading to the pool, beach, river, lake or backyard sprinkler because you will be judged, oh yes, you will be…

Let’s all wear foot jewelry this summer!

Let’s all wear foot jewelry this summer!

I’ve never worn foot jewelry in my entire life.  Putting jewelry on my feet seems about as strange to me as putting a tie or some makeup on my feet.  Or maybe a small wig on my toes for a beach side puppet show. But I love to try new things.  I don’t care what it is — jumping out of an airplane (check!) or putting on an anklet (almost check!), new experiences are good for the soul.  I believe…

Finding a bathing suit that doesn’t make me want to blind myself

Finding a bathing suit that doesn’t make me want to blind myself

I was going to write a whole post about where to find organic bathing suits.  The idea about buying an organic bathing suit was something I’d never even thought about until a couple of days ago.  Sure, organic food.  Absolutely.  Organic clothes.  Makes sense.  But an organic bathing suit?  Do people even make organic bathing suits?  And if so, what are they made out of?  Hemp?  I bet that looks nice when it gets wet. I found a comprehensive guide…

My all organic H&M outfit…

I’ve been really trying to make more eco-friendly clothing choices lately.  My rules are it either has to be organic or fair-trade or “pre-owned” in order for me to crack open my wallet.  And I know that H&M certainly isn’t fair-trade and that it qualifies under the evil heading of “cheap chic” clothing…. But…. They do make cute organic clothes for really good prices.  I feel like I should patronize their online store to buy organic clothes and that will…

King of Harts clothing for boys…

  King of Harts clothing is a new clothing line for boys designed by fabulous actress/celebrity/entrepreneur Melissa Joan Hart.  Melissa and I worked together for a couple of years on Sabrina, the Teenage Witch and it was the best TV experience I’ve had — and it had a lot to do with Melissa and her mom, Paula.  They are nice, happy people and when you have bosses that are nice, happy people then you have a nice, happy staff.  (This…

Where to find eco-friendly spring scarves…

Ever since I’ve made a personal commitment to wear more eco-friendly clothes, I’ve noticed that some organic/fair trade/sustainable items are easy to find and some are almost impossible.  Like it’s pretty easy to find organic baby clothes these days, but organic 11 year old boy clothes?  Forget it.  And unless you want to wear organic sweatpants around all the time (which isn’t necessarily a bad idea) then it’s really hard to find women’s organic pants that are dressy… or at…

The best place to get fake Birkenstocks

The best place to get fake Birkenstocks

I love Birkenstocks.  In the summer I wear them almost every day.  Not only do I love how they look and feel, but I love that this German company has been making shoes since 1774.  That’s 1774…. The beginning of the American Revolution, King George was on the throne in England and I’m pretty sure people still thought the world was flat.  So I guess the Birkenstock company started as way for people to walk comfortably around our big, flat…

Have you escaped from Ugly Mom Island?

Have you escaped from Ugly Mom Island?

Me?  Sure.  Yes.  On most days, I feel like I’ve successfully escaped from Ugly Mom Island.  It’s not that I look runway ready all the time — on the contrary!  Sometimes when I’m talking about my book, I notice that people slowly check out what I’m wearing and a look of confusion creeps across their faces.  She wrote a fashion book?  But she’s wearing jeans and a t-shirt.  Maybe she’s suffered a recent head injury and her physical therapist suggested…

Win a copy of Escape from Ugly Mom Island!

I’ve set up an amazon giveaway where 10 people can win a copy of my book!  It’s not a weird or creepy contest where you have to give out the numbers to every single credit card you’ve ever owned and your mother’s maiden name and which of your pet’s names is the password to your bank account. Nothing like that.  You just have to follow me on twitter, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.  Just enter and you might have…

A great eco-friendly spring outfit…

Ever since I started working on my style book, I’ve been really thinking about my own style.  I classify myself as hippie because my eye always goes to brands like Free People and Lucky and I do enjoy wearing bell-bottoms so large that I can store groceries and small children up my pant legs.  But that doesn’t reflect my whole personality.  (And as we know, style needs to reflect your personality.) I’d also like the clothes I buy to have…
