friday friendly skies to you m’loves.

i’m off on a jet-plane to belatedly ring in my girlfriend, jill grogg’s, 30th birthday.

the weekend promises laughter, love and diaper changes–we’ll have three infants in tow……six, counting our spouses.

here are a few other things i’m loving on this week:

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

dude?

yumbutter.

kind of says it all right there.

yumbutter is a new almond butter i’ve been having “relations with” all week.

it’s made with freshly ground chia, hemp seed + goji.

it’s yum indeed and bonkers healthy for you.

even better, yumbutter is deliciously charitable.

with every yumbutter you buy, a malnourished child gets fed.

and on a more personal topic, i appreciate the squeeze-pouch dispenser–also known as the “no-katie-you-can’t-eat-it-all-in-one-sitting-with-a-spoon” jar.

although as i was uploading this photo i realized i could totally mainline it, reddi-whip can style.

this cinnamon toast crunch ice cream needs to happen.

to me.

to you.

to one of us.

…and soon.

ninieties

it’s no secret i’m obsessed with, maybe still stuck in, the nineties.

case in point: the 90’s karma ride my partner-in-crime, leigh beach and i taught last month.

i didn’t have to buy one thing for my “costume;” including my beloved brenda walsh choker-an heirloom i hope to someday pass down to sweet sutton, once she’s come to appreciate all things darren star.

all the music i sourced was already on my every day playlist–listen below.

so anything 90’s related i’m a sucker for; especially this compilation of awesome red carpet nineties couples!!—{leigh, i think they need to add us..}

tell me kittens, what’s your favorite nineties tune?

hair

finally my hair.

i have new hair…and i LOVE it!

 laurie bernard one of the fabulous owners of holiday salon gave me the chop last week and i’m a new person!

screw losing the baby weight…..this feels so much better.

wishing you an insane in the brain weekend to you m’loves!

girl crush: alexis schulze

August 20, 2015

thursday happy to you m’loves!

it’s girl-crush time.

you know all of those nektar juices you’re addicted to?

well today we have the {beautiful} face behind the nektar craze.

alexis schulze, co-creator with her husband steve, of nektar juice, a company just named one of the top 5000 fastest growing in america, graciously took the time to stop by GNI, to let us crush on her.

sweet as pie, and as pretty as its peach filling, alexis is never without a smile or a friendly “hello.

even before i had met her {i of course knew who she was–she’s LIKE totally famous}–she was always so nice to me and welcoming.

let’s get to know this lovely lady:

lexibear (1 of 1)

alexis, tell us a bit about yourself and how you manage this full life of yours {married to steve, {2} boys, + your juice empire.} 

i think of myself as that girl in the circus balancing on a ball. she might look like she has it all together, but inside she’s freaking out! i juggle a business {i was always a teacher,} a typical busy, family life, and try to maintain my obsession with working out. my passion besides all of this is probably food. i love food…..

beauty

 name 5 bottom-of -the-jar products?

 for my face- arcona has a great line that i have been using on my sensitive, 41-year-old skin for probably 9 years now. my staples are magic white ice, a moisturizer, the solution– a nighttime repairing serum, and the vitamin A complex-a retinol formula for firming and clarity. my newest find is a natural deodorant that {so far} seems to be top notch- nourish organics {berry and fig smell yummy} and their argan butter- which is a mix of argan oil and shea butter, so it’s like butter cream on my dry sensitive skin! and not quite as hippie dippie is my oribe foundation mist. that stuff can fix my post-workout pony tail line that has ruined me for decades…always an obvious tell that i didn’t wash my hair…… UNTIL NOW!! {insert evil laugh here.}

style

who is your style icon and why?

i have to say jessica alba- she’s sexy and classy, and she’s just gorgeous!

molly sims is another one.

i think i am drawn to how real they are; they seem like peeps i would hang out with.

romper-614x460

what is your summer fashion, must-have item?

i am queen of the ROMPER! less thinking about what goes with what; throw it on with a great shoe and some fun jewelry! voila! even i can look put together that way!

 {1} {2} {3}

smell

what is your favorite smell?

cookies baking in the oven and my boys fresh from the shower!

wine

how do you define luxury?

an incredible bottle of wine, sitting outside somewhere beautiful.

81j3rfXRwmL

what’s the last book you read and loved?

the nightingale was one that stuck with me.

summercheeseplate

what are your vices?

wine, cheese, more wine! not so original in that one!

ped

finish the sentence….i can never leave the house without:

clothes? haha! ok, seriously….. probably a pedicure.

what advice would you give your 25-year-old self?

stop being so critical and don’t compare yourself to anyone else, just own what you have.

travle

what does your ideal 2 weeks off look like?

a perfect mix of exploration and relaxation. traveling somewhere i have not been, and adding a little adventure, some sightseeing and a lot of food and wine!

deserted

give me your 5 deserted island items….people and things? 

is it bad to NOT bring my kids? i mean, kinda selfish, but i would want them..although i know they would whine the whole time killing my relaxing vibe. so maybe not! being politically correct i should say my husband, but he’s not very handy, and i think charlie hunnam seems to me like he could build us a house and whatever else i needed. a coco jack– that way i could drink a lot of coconut water and stay hydrated. a phone to call my kids and husband {just to check in because i wouldn’t actually want to leave charlie all alone,} a kindle to read {assuming i had a lot of books already downloaded,} and a good pair of shoes for hiking.

what is your idea of perfect happiness?

i think i just described it above….:)

ok really. finding balance, real and honest friendships, and the ability to spend quality time with those i love. oh and if cellulite didn’t exist!

Night-Guard-for-Teeth-Grinding-Treatment

 family members excluded what is your most prized possession?

family excluded…..well, i am not really into things…i think as unglamorous as it sounds my night guard..keeps me from having migraines…and that is pretty prized.

 in what historical era would you most like to have lived?

i am fascinated by the WWII era, but i’m not sure i’d want to live then.

 what are your favorite things about living in southern california?

the weather! growing up in arizona it’s really nice to not melt when you walk outside.

plastic-surgery-1-998x1024

 what are your least favorite things about southern california?

being far from family and how perfect everyone looks is…kinda hard on us perfectionist, aging women!

thank you alexis for letting us crush on you today, and giving us a glimpse into your life—you are sweet as nektar!
