1. Favorite Kale Recipes

    Last pregnancy I got very anemic in the end of my second trimester and as a result felt very lethargic and sometimes even faint! My doctor comforted me and told me it is actually quite common. {Not sure what anemia is or if you may have it? WEBMD explains: “When you’re pregnant, you may develop anemia. When you have anemia, your blood doesn’t have enough healthy red blood cells to carry oxygen to your tissues and to your baby. During pregnancy, your body produces more blood to support the growth of your baby.

  2. HairCare Solution: Sleek and Straight

    Blow-outs have always been an obsession of mine. To be honest they began as a result of my scarring high school hair days, specifically senior year. I was a cheerleader that year {which I still laugh about because I was such a serious athlete on the tennis court that it seemed ironic that I threw that activity into the mix}. I remember that on game days we could wear our cheerleading outfit to school {a much more attractive option to our usual school dress code} so all the other girls on the squad showed up with their stick straight hair flowing…

So what were the real deets behind the event? Elaine Turner, a chic…

    Hello March! This Spring I have a jam-packed schedule, from new collabs with maternity and mommy brands, to testing and featuring more beauty products {gotta give the readers what they want!}, to endless decor meetings {which couldn’t be better timing coinciding with my recent move to a three bedroom apartment!}. When I have my days that are dedicated to meetings and press previews, I need something classic and sophisticated of course balancing with comfort, being that I am pregnant / commuting the streets on New York / sneaking home for the occasional hello and play time with Reese. So what’s…

    Daily Front Row David Yurman Fete at the Guggenheim Young Cocktail Party Katrina Bowden Amanda Gluck

    I was so excited to be featured in the headline shot for Daily Front Row {aka FashionWeekDaily.com} this past week. If you remember from this Fashionable Hostess Instagram shot, I attended the Guggenheim’s Young Collectors Party with hot date / actress / bestie Katrina Bowden {well known for her roles on 30Rock and American Reunion}. To the event, I wore a non-maternity dress {even though I was 21 weeks preg!} – the Zebra Print Dress from Zara, which showed off the bump perfectly! It was such a fun night – it started with photos on a red carpet with a gorgeous white rose…
