This week’s Five for Friday is a real treat! It’s a real life celebrity! I’m sure you’ve heard of Love and Knuckles. If you haven’t, let me tell you…it’s hilarious! “Snarky columns about pop culture and celebrity gossip.”, is how Kate Casey of Love and Knuckles describes her site. It may be snarky, but it’s pretty much the funnier version of what we’re all thinking. I feel so lucky to have Kate visiting today!
Philadelphia born and bred. Currently living in Newport Beach, California with my husband and three kids Mia (4), Jack (almost 2), and Hayes (10 weeks). A media consultant for law firms by day and humor writer covering pop culture by night.
If we were talking jewelry I would love the thin gold Hermes H bracelet with light pink band.
But if you want to talk plastic surgery/facial transformation procedures I would love a tub of Botox, but unfortunately feeding my infant breast milk is taking precedence.
I really love…
Maya Brenner monogram gold necklace with my children’s initials because it is thin, can easily be layered with other pieces, and it is sentimental.
Reading an entire issue of Vanity Fair while consuming champagne without the distraction of work or screaming children.
Fave beauty item:
Soap? Once a week I go on a date night with my husband. It’s my way of reminding him that his wife can wear something other than running shorts. On those occasions I like to take it up a notch with some makeup. Not drag makeup. I like Chanel blush and Tom Ford makes great lip-glosses.
Fun fact: Tom Ford lip-gloss can outlast making out with a champagne glass.
Recent mommy moment…
On Monday the dry clean delivery guy saw me pumping milk in my office. I am pretty sure his eyes are still bleeding.
Kate is such a giver, she’s offered a bonus question:
What is the best piece of parenting advice you’ve ever received?
I have always admired the way my friend Judi would tell her sons how much their brother adored them. “Look at the way he looks at you. He thinks you are the coolest person in the whole world”, she would say. My husband and I have adopted that practice by making sure our kids always hear how much their sibling loves them and how they will be best friends their whole life. So it gives us great joy when they kiss and hug and ask where the other is when they are apart.
Awwww….That last one is such good advice! Isn’t she awesome! I would like one of those necklaces too! Here is a picture of me and some of the Momtourage reppin’ for Love and Knuckles in our boxing class. Yes, we are all wearing our Love and Knuckles shirts…
Special thanks to Kate Casey!
