Father’s Day Gift Guide

After spending three-plus months in isolation, when every day has felt largely the same, we are taking every opportunity to celebrate. Father’s Day is this weekend (!), so I put together this Father’s Day gift guide because I’ve been looking for special ways to honor the men in my life, from my own husband to friends, uncles and grandpas. Since Jared hasn’t been filming, we’ve gotten to spend a ton of time

Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Being on lockdown with my family for the past two months has made me appreciate all that women do even more. Sure, dads are wonderful and tons of fun, but moms–moms are different. Moms are the magic makers, the organizers, the worriers, the appointment keepers, the ones who get stuff done (even during a global pandemic). So, I wanted to put together a Mother’s Day gift guide to thank all

How to Start a Greener Beauty Routine

About three years ago, I met makeup artist Campbell Ritchie at a photo shoot. We hit it off immediately and have been besties ever since. Not only is the Australian native a talented makeup artist, but she is also a two-time cancer survivor, a committed vegan, and an eco-friendly enthusiast who is an expert at starting a greener beauty routine. Whether she’s doing makeup for a fashion show, magazine editorial,

7 Cozy Sweaters I’m Living in this Winter

Today I’m packing for a fun weekend away with Jared to celebrate our 10-year (!) anniversary. Some people love sunshine and beaches, but Jared knows that the way to my heart is a snowy mountain getaway. While everyone else is counting the days until spring, I’m all about curling up in front of a fire while wearing warm, cozy sweaters. It’s something I don’t get to do very often living in

Eco-Friendly Fashion Brands I Love

Gen Padalecki Eco Fashion

Making eco-friendly changes in our everyday life has been a big goal of mine in 2019. We’ve been trying to be more mindful of the food we buy, the food we grow and the personal care products we use as a family. The next stop: My closet. I love fashion and want to shop smarter for the environment while still looking stylish. And I’ve been pleasantly surprised to discover that

Cool Kid Gifts

With three kids, six nieces and nephews and an endless stream of birthday parties for school classmates, I’m always on the hunt for cool gifts for kids. The trick: Finding something that the littles will love AND won’t make their parents hate me. (Hello, singing dog guitar.) As my kids will tell you, noisy electronic toys seem to mysteriously lose their batteries around here (sorry, not sorry). I think the

Spring Edit: Denim Jumpsuits

I never thought I’d be THAT mom who wears matching outfits with her kid but….here we are. And, I have to say, I’m kinda loving it. Odette is VERY opinionated about her wardrobe (I wonder where she gets it from?). She is obsessed with color and especially loves accessories. And playing “twinsies” always make her smile. Our new favorite trend for spring: Denim jumpsuits. I love the convenience of a
