Love Announcements

 “Look who’s a pumpkin now?” says Danny as I head out for an evening with some friends in Brooklyn. 

Today I’m particularly excited about this round up of recommendations….

  • Let’s talk tights.  How about a monochromatic or an “almost” monochromatic look?  This dress was red/orange and the tights were bright red.  It got some lookers.  I have a royal blue skirt and I want to get some dark teal tights to wear with it.  And I have a burnt orange skirt and want to get some dark fuschia tights to wear with it.  You get the idea.  We’ll see how that goes.  🙂  My favorite source for tights?  We Love Colors.  We gave them lots of business during the Harvey Faircloth days (also thanks to this Harvey post on Cup of Jo).  (Also, if you’re small, get the kids’ size in large and you can save a few bucks.)

  • Check-list for Fall/WinterVITAMIN D!  (Read here for Dr. info. about why this is SOOO important for mental & physical health!) I have actually been low on it for years.  eeks!  My doctor says almost every New Yorker is severely low on it and just about everyone in the country should be taking a supplement during the fall and winter (ask your Dr. for a blood test!)  I take these Vitamin D drops.  My doctor says emulsified Vitamin D is more easily absorbed and therefore more effective.  (More seasonal mental tips here.)

  • Quinoa Pumpkin Pancakes!  (I haven’t had pancakes in years.  My Saturday mornings are looking better and better.  Thanks, Rik! 🙂  Oh – and I’d make these with almond milk & coconut oil instead of butter 🙂

  • And holy crap, I got asked to speak at Alt Summit in Salt Lake City.  WOW.  Such an honor, especially considering one year ago I was so new to the scene.  I can’t believe it.  And I hope to meet some of you there.  I also would love to see more of your blogs!! 

Wishing you all lots of good and restful moments this weekend.  Danny and I will be with friends on a foliage outing.  If it rains we’ll be at suburbia malls and The Cheesecake Factory (you have no idea how exciting those things are for New Yorkers 🙂

Love to all,

    Please keep your style tips coming. Love them – so inspiring and fresh!

    I finally bought the Vera Moore lipstick you recommend in Diva Orange. Was nervous about whether it would work on me. I had to pay shipping charges – the ultimate commitment! But it looks great. LOVE it. Thank you Mara!

      Oh – so glad you like a few tips thrown in here and there. 🙂
      And – Diva Orange! To die for. It looks so good on everyone. I just love that pop of color.

    But you have Junior's in New York!! (Devil's Food = Best. Cheesecake. EVER!) Cheesecake Factory doesn't even hold a candle to Junior's, in my humble opinion. 🙂 Ha ha.

      Yes – I'll admit that Junior's is amazing. 🙂 I can attest to that from my pre-dairy-free days. But man, I don't know – parking lots and big booths and familiar menus pull us in! It sounds crazy, but those things are a treat. Those things aren't enough for us all to move to the suburbs yet. But we do relish in the suburbia conveniences when we can when we're out of town. 🙂

    You are adorable, and I commend you for the time you take in writing such great inspirational advice about love…even at my age! Even though I feel as if I have enough love to last for eternity with my better half of 18 years its people like you who keep the love going thorough sincere words. Keep it up!

    If you have time here is the link to my blog. I mostly write about family, trials, and my faith of being a mormon. Thanks!

    I'm so bummed! Wish I could go to Alt Summit but the registration is sold out! Looks like a great opportunity.
    Good luck!
    Hope all is well.

    Love your outfit and especially your bag 🙂
    Thanks so much for posting the link about mothers, it was very inspiring. I loved especially the quote about being a light for others. That's what it's all about, right? I firmly believe that we go through experiences in life so that we can emphasize with others and be a light in their life by sharing our experiences and understanding what others go through.
    Than you so much for a great blog!
