The Sunday Brief

January 28, 2017

Locks Love // Have you heard of the “Hygge” concept that is taking the world by storm? It’s all about being cozy and happy. Well, Concihairge was here this week and my stylist, Monica, hyyge-ified my hair. No really. It’s a real thing.

Big B-day // How fun is this idea for someone celebrating a milestone birthday. My sisters and I just made these for our dad who is turning 70 next month. We sent out readdressed/stamped postcards and he will get 70 heartfelt wishes mailed to him over the next month <3

Winter Spice // Our favorite way to bring life into winter? Bold prints and graphics. Abby hand picked a few of her faves….

Shameless Plug // I’ve been nominated for a “Bestie Award – Best social media Mom” by one of my favorite “what to do with kids” sites. I’m supposed to ask for your vote! So, yeah, thanks!

Chill(i) // It’s chilly out. Why not make chili? My crew approved of this recipe last week. (And who has tried my quinoa bowls? They might need more seasoning for an adult palate – the version posted is more kid friendly! BYO heat.)

Cover it Up // If you are following me on instagram (@themotherchic), you saw that I shared the coverup I brought on vacation with me a few weeks ago. So good! I’ve had lots of requests for vacation outfit/packing posts, but here are some favorites to hold you over.

5’9+ Club // Where are my tall girls? I’m barely 5’4 so have never had to deal with this, but after I posted this mini swim guide many readers have been saying how HARD it is to find a one piece suit for a long torso. Any one have the holy grail? Please leave a comment to help these ladies out!

Sweet Little Somethings // Looving this delicate line of jewelry. I’ve been wearing these on repeat and these for a little every day sparkle. Can’t wait to wear these this spring. For the 5 guys who read this blog. Have you gotten the Valentine’s Day hint, or should I keep going?

Beauty Corner // Dry skin, begone. And throw this in every bag you own.

Lots of fun posts in the queue for this week… check back!

Happy Sunday.

    Can you suggest jeans for shorter girls, barely 5′ over here.

    I’m 5’9″ and have had luck with swimsuits at Long Tall Sally, Land’s End and J. Crew. Hope that helps!
