The Sunday Brief

the motherchic blog

Have Your Cake // And eat it too? This article made it’s way around the internet this week. Does “having it all” really exist? I’m not sure it does. Working moms, weigh in!

Eat // This pasta, chicken, broccoli dish was a hit at my house this week. We also tried salmon (not my personal favorite, but this recipe looked simple and good). Next week I’m trying this chicken orzo recipe and here is a good vegetarian quesadilla – meatless  Monday, anyone? Leave a comment with any recipes you made recently that went over big!

They’re Real // I posted this snap on instagram (you can follow me @themotherchic) and asked for everyone to spill their fave coffee/mascara combo. The verdict? We have a lot of La Colombe and Starbucks lovers and for the lashes – all over the place from drugstore brand to designers, but this one caught my eye. Better than sex? And now I’m curious! Here is the link to the “All I Need is Coffee and Mascara” tee. This one is amazing too.

Athleisure // A LOT of readers bought this cardigan that I recommended in my athleisure post. It’s on sale at Nordstrom and SUPER soft. What do you guys think? A good find? Also, local readers – don’t forget to email my sister Liz, [email protected], for your FREE X-Force session. It is THE most effective resistance training out there and you only need to do it once per week (it only take 30 mins tops!).

60 Degrees // It was 60 degrees in my neck of the woods yesterday which spun me into spring cleaning mode – washed my entire sectional couch and all of the pillows. I’m not sure if this is a “real thing” or not, but I put a few drops of lemon essential oil in my dryer so everything would smell extra fresh. Here are some other “brilliant” spring cleaning tips if the mood strikes. Or you could just go outside and enjoy the sun….

On the Radar for Spring….


Good News // So it turns out one of your vices just might reverse the damage of another. Read the full story here. Wine and coffee for the win!

Score // The Nordstrom Winter Clearance ends today. Gap is 40% off  today and tomorrow with lots of new spring arrivals. Loft is also offering 40% off warmer weather styles – spring break, anyone?

Have a great Sunday, everyone!
