What Makes You Feel Beautiful

In my editor’s note at the beginning of June, I asked readers to tell me what makes you feel your most beautiful. And you did, in droves (more than 1,000 comments between the blog and Instagram, to be exact!). First of all, thank you to all of you who commented. I can’t tell you how inspiring it has been to read through your responses. From everyday moments to personal stories

Sunday Brunch Series: Breakfast Flatbread with Ricotta and Strawberry-Basil Jam

A part of me will always be a California girl at heart. Having spent the first 13 years of my life growing up in Northern California, we’d pick Meyer lemons and kumquats in my grandmother’s backyard, and fresh ingredients and a mix of local produce were staples in our family’s kitchen. (It’s partially why I love to garden.) It’s also one of the reasons why I love Gaby Dalkin’s blog,

Living Well With Dr. Frank Lipman

I’ve had hypothyroidism for quite some time. It’s something that runs in my family. As I started to dig deeper into the disorder, I realized that it’s very much connected to the gut, and I wanted to explore the root of the disorder versus simply the symptoms and causes—which led me to the work of Dr. Frank Lipman. His new book, How to Be Well, is about more than gut

Celebrating Father’s Day

Marriage, like parenting, is messy, complicated, beautiful, emotional, and imperfectly perfect. We learn so much about ourselves through our relationships, for the people we do life with often hold up a mirror to our most triggering aspects. I experience wild comfort in knowing I married my best friend – someone who constantly reminds me that I’m enough, as I explore, evolve, and cultivate new sides of myself. As human beings,

Gen’s June Lit List: Beautiful Reads

This month we’re delving into everything beauty-related, and while a lot of beauty books are makeup how-to’s (many of which I love!), I wanted to make this Lit List about more than makeup. The books I’ve chosen take a wellness-oriented approach to beauty, covering everything from a deep dive into skincare to the French approach to beauty. Beauty and good intentions go hand in hand, and I’ve found that these

 5-Minute Hair Hacks for Busy Days

Initially I was going to call this post “5-Minute Hair Hacks for Busy Mamas,” but you certainly don’t have to be a mom to have too much on your plate to deal with your hair!   That being said, on days when I’m sprinting after my three little ones, the last thing I have the time or energy for is making sure my hair is perfectly blown-out and smooth. Because

Love, Gen: I See the Beauty in You

Whether I know it or not, I’m always struggling with my definition of beauty— from aging, to perfectionism, to fat-shaming myself, to holding my cards close to my chest about getting my period every month to how often I indulge in “beauty” maintenance. In thinking about how I’d tackle this month’s theme, I realized that beauty doesn’t need to be a source of conflict. It doesn’t need to be our

Self Love and Healthy Boundaries with Terri Cole

But when we’re stretched so thin, how are we supposed to take care of ourselves? Licensed psychotherapist and love and relationship expert Terri Cole calls this phenomenon the “disease to please.” Her passion is helping women set boundaries and live
