MY 9 RANDOM ESSENTIALS


1. To motivate myself to drink lots of H2O, I started making flavored water with any berries that are in the fridge with lemon and basil or mint. Also love cucumber water. The flavor is super refreshing, zero calories, it looks so pretty and it works because I do drink a lot more.


2. Instead of shopping for an ordinary diaper bag, I converted my Proenza Schoular to my baby bag. I love it because it's roomy, stylish and fits perfectly on my stroller.


3. Tan Towels A touch of tan glow is always a great idea especially now in the summer.


4. Glow masks Those are simply amazing! To make up for my current luck of consistency of daily facial routine, I use Glow masks once to twice a week and get really good results. So worth it!




5. NARS lip pencils been my thing for years now. Occasionally I try new products but somehow always come back to these. Bright lips and sunnies makes the quickest put together look.



6. Uppa baby stroller that was purchased 4.5 years ago for my girl Katya. I chose this brand because of the bassinet and the big storage space. I have to say that I am very pleased with it but for travel, this is not the most convenient one. For city mommies and for older babies, I love Orbit as well.


7.Josie robe/cover up, days before baby Leonix arrived my girlfriend and I went shopping for comfy home/hospital essentials. I been living in them ever since and wear it as a cover up as well. It's a great gift for your expecting girlfriend.


8. I love everything about this bassinet. It's beyond adorable and I love having Leonix at night by my bed side at least for first couple of months.  I am not sure where is this particular one from as we got it from our friends. But I found some great options herehere, and here If you are expecting, I would for sure recommend to buy one.


9. Fresh flowers, I absolutely love having them around the house.



While working on this post I realized that I have more favorites to share. I will leave those for my next essentials post.

Thank you for visiting my blog. I hope you are having an awesome start of the week.

GRATEFUL DEAD, I AM SO GRATEFUL!


First night out since Leonix was born was one to remember! It was a once in a lifetime, electrifying experience I had along with over 70,000 kind people from all over the country who came to celebrate the legendary Grateful Dead's final concerts, Fare Thee Well.

Deadheads planned for months to celebrate the end of the road of the Dead. It was hard for me to understand but after experiencing this I get it, living that moment is priceless!  

When I woke up today, I felt that last night I was on a different planet, kinda like a dream, one that I will never forget. I am so grateful!

For my outfit, I was inspired by fringe that was outgrowth of the hippie movement and by Grateful Dead's roses. I am wearing roses print vintage blazer from grandma, fringe dress and ripped maternity jeans. Although I said that denim are out from my wardrobe for now, I really wanted to wear them for the show, so I wore the maternity one :) 


Some videos I recorded and posted on my youtube chanel here and here.

4TH OF JULY OUTFIT INSPIRATION


It turns out that styling post-baby body is not much different than styling baby bump. All pieces I purchased at the beginning of the pregnancy became pretty handy now.

I especially love wearing flair minis with oversized top. This style is fun and works great for me. Jeans especially flair style are out of my wardrobe, well.. at least for now.

Happy 4th of July! I hope you have exciting plans for the weekend!

ps I am going to the Grateful Dead concert tonight and will be posting snaps on my Instagram page.

MY LIFE SO FAR WITH BABY LEONIX


It's unbelievable how time flies. After expecting for so long, baby Leonix is already 3 weeks old and now I can barely remember life without him. 

The biggest surprise so far is the adjustment as its been a lot easier than was expected. Leonix is doing fantastic, Katya and Jaiden are best siblings we could ask for. And maybe because I already know what to do with newborns, the entire experience is so much more relaxed and enjoyable.  

This week, I started slowly coming back to routine with my little guy by my side. Yoga, many walks, photoshoot, Grateful Dead concert and more are all on my agenda this week. 

Thank you for all the sweet wishes, comments, messages, emails..... I am the most grateful for all the love and support.



Pictures were taken at Northwestern Hospital by Bella Baby when Leonix was 3 days old.

BUMP STYLE TIPS


It was my daughter's Katya 4th birthday celebration. To style my girl was easy as the party held at her gymnastic place so new fancy leotard did the job. To dress up my almost 9 months baby bump, I stuck with my same signature style. Maternity denim, stretchy basic t-shirt and pretty unbuttoned blouse that added festive vibe to my look. For an extra layer of chic I added long leather vest by one of my favorite Israeli designers, Persy. 




Few things I would recommend to invest if you are expecting: 
1. quality maternity denim, my favorite brand is AG Jeans
2. black and white stretchy soft maternity t-shirts 
3. treat yourself with new per of trendy flats because you deserve it!
4. keep all your blazers, cardigans and button down shirts as those you can wear during the entire pregnancy
5. my first pregnancy I also wore maxi dresses, those don't have to be maternity, as long as they have stretch, go with a bigger size and you are perfectly good to go

SNEAKERS CAN ACTUALLY LOOK CHIC


I couldn't be more grateful for the trend that has been around for a while and it's just getting better... the sneakers trend!

As much as I LOVE heels, I can't wear them all the time. Especially while spending time with my 4 year old and while expecting my little boy arrival, any day now :)  The great news is that the variety of sneakers are endless and they can actually look chic!






Here I paired mine with ripped white denim, basic T shirt and one of my favorite button down shirts as a light jacket. An extra layer of cozy sweater in Chicago is always a great idea.

When dressing up your sneakers, think opposites. Try stepping out of your comfort zone and style them with a dress or tailored blazer. You may be fashionably surprised! 


What do you think? Would you try it? How do you stye your sneakers? Comment here for a chance to win a weekly giveaway to my most stylish readers!

Have a fantastic week and stay tuned on my Instagram for some exciting baby news :)
