Powering up for the rest of the week by cuddling my O.G. fluff baby, Winston and sipping some delicious tea before the day gets too crazy. Let’s face it: this pup needed some extra attention on le blog because Naiya has definitely been stealing his spotlight since she’s been born! Dog mama’s: once you had babies, did you feel tons of guilt about not being able to cuddle with your pup as much? If so, I’m right there with you! Today, I’m sharing a couple of ways I’ve been detoxing over the past couple of weeks. I was feeling like I was dragging after the holidays so part of my new year’s resolution was to try a couple of detoxes I’ve never tried before. From the most amazing juice cleanse to a detox tea you need to know about, I’m rounding up all the things for you below.
I had the privilege of speaking on a panel for Syracuse University recently and it was one of the most rewarding experiences I’ve had in a long time. I was able to chat with college juniors and seniors studying out here in LA for the semester as they geared up to apply for their first jobs. If these kids are any indication of our future, I left feeling like will be in great hands. They’re smart, they’re positive thinkers and they want to make a difference. Since I haven’t shared too much about my work life outside of RELish with you here, this particular panel inspired me to open up a bit more about it. So without further ado, today, I’m sharing my favorite secrets on how to nail your first job in Hollywood. If you read this and you do end up making it, I ask only that you continue to pay it forward, that you always stay humble and most importantly, that you hire Naiya as your assistant someday.
Happy Cyber Monday, Everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful, relaxing Thanksgiving! Since I spent the early morning trying to scour my favorite online shops for the best deals, I decided to round them all up for you in one place for easy holiday gift-buying access. Excited to share the below list with you today, as well as some of the gifts I’m eyeing for those closest to me this holiday season! Of course I also added in a few special items for you too–in case you’re anything like me and you’re finding it extra tempting to treat yourself to some deals.
Since Naiya is about to turn one year old later this week, I’ve been feeling overly nostalgic recently (I’m not crying storing her 6-12 month old clothing in the attic–you’re crying!). Hands down, this has been the most incredible, meaningful, pivotal and exhausting year of my life. I’ve never felt such extreme highs and lows in the same hour, let alone in the same week as I have this year. I’ve also never felt so happy, terrified and also so fulfilled all at the same time.
Along with today’s outfit of the day (a bright pink mumu because…#momlife), I’m excited to share a guest post by my hubby, Phil. I last interviewed him here about how his experience in becoming a first-time dad. Since it looks like that post was one of your all-time favorites, my wordsmith of a husband is back today by popular demand. This time, I asked him to open up a bit about his version of our love story. Since some of you may be newer to this blog and I haven’t shared too much about how we met since our wedding posts (more here, here and here), I’m excited for Phil to get you all caught up below in his own words.
