Plaid

1 2 34 With a tough week behind me, I’m looking forward to restoring a little bit of balance this week. That includes some park time with Lucia (big-kids slide! tire swing! see-saw! and endless stairs!), park time with the dogs (the kind with lots of other dogs, of course), and perhaps even a game of tennis or two. Although “game” is a very generous term – might be more like “hitting some tennis balls.” And if I could score a little bit of shopping time in Union Square or on Fillmore Street, well, that would be the icing on the cake… But before all that, I guess it’s time to get to work!!! Happy Monday!

Morning & A Giveaway

12 Can’t wait for the weekend: a slow(er) morning means that there’s time to catch up on the little things that were sacrificed during a busy workweek (like magazines!). And there’s no excuse for skipping steps in my skincare routine so I always start the week feeling refreshed & brighter. This weekend is definitely going to be devoted to some re-energizing.

And a Giveaway! I’ve partnered up with Japanese skincare brand Equitance to celebrate the launch of their line in the US (catch up on my first and second posts with them here and here)! After 18 years of brightening research, Equitance discovered that linoleic acid, a natural ingredient that is extracted from safflower seed oil and purified, had a measurable effect on skin brightening and minimizing the appearance of dark spots. They also patented a microcapsule technology that maximizes the delivery of the linoleic acid onto the skin. After seeing my skin endure what I can only say was a wild (and wildly disheartening) roller-coaster ride post-pregnancy, I’m so happy with the results so far – it looks brighter than its been in a long, long time.  I would love to have you take Equitance for a test drive too! We’ll send the full-size brightening collection to one lucky winner and five runner-ups will receive the skin care trial kit. To enter, visit www.Equitance-us.com and leave a comment here with your email address by October 24 - I’ll contact the winners next week!

Trousers

123 These trousers must be about 8 years old by now but I just can’t part with them (here’s a post from 3 years ago!). They’re the perfect fit in the perfect fabric (they don’t wrinkle too much, don’t stretch out too much, and when I was traveling the country nonstop for my previous job, they were perfectly suited for a suitcase). Don’t you love buys like that?

My big, 12-hour workday on Tuesday turned out to be well worth the weeks-long concerted effort from the team (but to be fair, it seems more like the culmination of months of strategic planning and work!). We’re gearing up for launch day so the to-do list has only doubled (or tripled?!) now. An exciting but time-crunched period ahead!

Thanks for visiting & happy Thursday!
