Shower Power!














Hi ladies,
I HAD THE BEST WEEKEND! My sisters, Lauren/"Laur-Laur" and Devon/"Brownie" threw me the chicest baby shower I've ever seen! Seriously, I'm mad that Domino wasn't shooting it. The bebe soiree went down at my dear friend Selene's dazzling Park Slope house, and all my favorite people were there (except my SYB Babes, claro que si). Laur and Brownie made delicious treats and my beautiful Mommy (that's her, sharing my rabid delightment, below) funded the whole thing! Lil' Diva is a lucky, lucky girl. Thank you, friends, family--and Selene's poor neighbors who suffered through decibel-breaking squeals of joy all Sunday afternoon--for a truly magical day.


Okay, so yes, the day was magical, but as it is with any event where you're the center of attention, it was MAD STRESSFUL. During the gift-opening moment, I sweated out the back of my hair until it resembled a wet, oversized cotton ball. Knowing that I was going to be nervous all day, I pampered the hell out of myself by taking a long, luxurious bath the Morning Of. And I slathered my body in my new favorite bath product, Molton Brown Warming Eucalyptus & Ginger Body Scrub ($48). GIRLS. Have you tried this? I got it because, as some crazy pregnancy symptom, my skin has been shedding like crazy--especially on my belly. Has this ever happened to any of my mommy SYB Babes? Anyway, I splurged on this exfoliator and my skin has never been happier.


First of all, it's self-warming, which is fabulous as the weather's getting cooler. Second of all, it's loaded with pure essential oils that leave my skin feeling cashmere-soft. And third of all, it's blended with eucalyptus and ginger that not only opens my always-clogged sinuses when it wafts into the air and mixes with the bathtub/shower steam, but it tingles on my skin in the MOST delicious way! Ladies, if you have dry skin, a cold, or both, this miracle scrub is your man (speaking of "man," Sunshine described my shoulder as "edible" after my daily scrub last night...nice!).

Love ya, mean it,
Tia


PS...I'm sorry, I just had to show off The Cake. Have you ever?

Cute shower! While I was pregnant, the skin on my body shed a little more than usual, but the skin on my ears shed A TON. You don't know disgusting until you have strips of dead skin coming off your ear in the middle of dinner, in meetings, left on your pillow, etc. Let's just say I stopped wearing my hair pulled back for a while. LOL

OMG Tia...I had the "Mod Mom" theme for my baby shower...of course I didn't have pink anything because I had a boy...but I love the chic silhouettte of the mommy! Yes I had a belly that flaked, but there were so many other things going on that I didn't pay too attention to it. It will go away eventually.

Awww, the cake is adorable!! I also love your dress. I'm still looking for a dress to wear to my baby shower in November. I'd love any suggestions you might have. Also, I might have missed it if you've already done a post on this but since I've been PG, I've noticed that my already combination skin has become oil slick city 24/7. Any product suggestions? I'm trying to avoid stuff with salilyic acid but I don't think I have a choice. Anything organic you can recommend for oily skinned mommies to be?
