Elsie’s Favorite Buys:

“To be fair, I had like 10 favorite books. This was my favorite popular novel that MORE than lives up to the hype it receives.”

Elsie

“I wear these boots nonstop. They are perfect with tights and dresses or jeans. They make me feel like a cool mom (not a regular mom …).” 

Elsie

Favorite Coffee Table Book:

Magritte in 400 Images

“This mini art book shows 400 paintings from one of my favorite surrealist painters. It inspires me that it’s OK to have so many different styles and phases over the decades. It’s very beautiful and weird!” 

Elsie

Favorite Etsy Purchase:

Personalized Library Book Stamp

“Personalized library stamp! I got this with my kids’ names for their new library (which you can see here!).”

Elsie

Best Investment in Creativity:

MasterClass Subscription

“I have been taking classes on Masterclass all year. I love the pacing of them and that I can fit them into my busy work/mom life. I love taking e-courses as a way to build my confidence as a creative person. Protecting your creativity is so important at all ages and phases of life.”

Emma’s Favorite Buys:

Favorite Beauty Item:

Glossier Futuredew Serum

“I use this serum at night and love it! You can also blend a little bit into your foundation for a dewy day look.”

Emma

“I love this backpack for travel, but I also use it anytime I’m taking my laptop somewhere. It has a built-in USB charging port, too!”

Emma

Favorite Night Routine Purchase:

Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask

“I put this lip mask on every night before bed, and it’s especially great in the winter.”

Emma

Favorite Etsy Purchase:

Personalized Name Ring

“I wear this stackable ring everyday—it’s customized with my son’s name.”

Emma

Favorite Home Item:
