• July Favorites

    Hey hey, here we are half way through Summer! How is everyone doing? All a little different, but we are making sure we are still having an excellent Summer. Here are my favorites from this month!       Outdoor Movie Projector – What kid doesn’t love staying up late for an outdoor movie. This thing is awesome! Face Masks – I mean this one is obvious right? You have to wear one so let’s make it fun.  Shan Swimsuit – I actually have this in a different color but it is THE BEST swimsuit I have… so flattering, so comfortable. I feel like a million bucks in it! HBO’s…

  • June Favorites…

    June is always a whirlwind with school ending and the start of Summer! All of my favorites from the month either made my life easier, just made me happy or provided a great escape of entertainment away from the news cycle! Never Have I Ever – Netflix–  Oh my gosh is this show adorable! We binged this teen coming of age comedy-drama so quickly and were so sad when it ended! Don’t miss it! Living Proof Perfect Hair Day In Shower Styler – I have fully embraced my curly hair during this quarantine (and to be honest, the heatwave) and this product really makes it so much easier to keep…

  • Week Twelve Coronavirus Hiatus & May Favorites… 2020

    Week Twelve. Things are shifting. Now in this Phase One stage restaurants are offering outside dining, fitness studios are reopening as are stores slowly with restrictions in place. It feels hopeful… I think, as a family, we will continue to hibernate a little longer and dip our toes in the water with caution in the coming weeks. There is still so much unknown about the virus, particularly in children, and it seems that the information changes daily. That said, as the country was starting to reopen last week, there was a happening that is anything but hopeful. The death of a George Floyd. What happened to George Floyd and what…

  • April Favorites… 2020

    I know I say it all the time; “Where did the month go?”. But really… where did it go? April was one very long blur. I can not believe it’s already over. Lot’s of TV, movies & books  here… because what else have we done this month? I hope everyone is hanging in during their quarantine!     White + Warren Cashmere Sweatshirt – I bought this utterly soft sweater from my favorite local shop, Fred. It’s on sale in both spots! I LOVE it. Feels put together while still so comfortable.  Defending Jacob – Apple TV – This book was actually the first book I picked for book club…

  • Week Four Coronavirus Hiatus: Cut Yourself Some Slack

    Week four, that seems really unbelievable. I read a great NY Times article last week about relaxing on the “To-Do List”; easing up on the need to feel productive. I couldn’t agree more. We have enough pressure and stress on ourselves right now, do we REALLY need to have our house in perfect order too? Learn a new language (I laughed out loud)? Or learn how to make puff pastry from scratch?   If those things relax you then by all means become multilingual and clean out every last closet. Some days cleaning helps me, some days I just want to binge watch TV after we’ve completed our eLearning because…

  • Week Two Coronavirus Hiatus: Gratitude

    Okay, here we are… rolling in to week two of this thing. It will be be a lot longer, we know that. That is OKAY. We are all OKAY. I know I have spoken about gratitude a lot in the past 18 months. The shifts that happened in my life after I lost my brother… the changes in my perspective are incredibly helpful here. This is a scary time. We are scared about what the future holds for our communities, small businesses and our country as a whole. We have to remember just how lucky we are as a small little family. My family, my immediate family & extended family,…

  • Week One Coronavirus Hiatus

    OKAY. Here we go, the first full week for us on our little Coronavirus Hiatus is here. The weekend went smoothly… we are fully stocked (did you read this post?) and are staying in (please read THIS ONE). I know I have been preachy (well for weeks now?) but let me give you one little glimpse as to why. Meet my good friend, Fiona. Please read this article she wrote on being the mom of a immunocompromised son. We adore this family and knowing them has truly opened my eyes to the importance of being aware of those around you and how your minor actions can have a bigger impact on…

  • January Favorites

    Oh January is always a little dull right? After all the glitter of the holidays it is a time to be quiet and stay home… and maybe get organized? I have been trying to do all those things… I have a ways to go on the organization front but I am getting there! So here are this month’s favorites… yep, 3 TV shows on that list!   Please note: A Modern Housewife LLC has affiliate relationships with multiple brands.
