O’Keeffe’s Working Hands.
3.4 oz.
$6.99

Gardening season is just around the corner, and I have seedling plants on my windowsill to prove it. But with all the loveliness that comes from spending my mornings, and afternoons, and evenings out in the yard, it isn’t without some peril. My hands end up looking like hamburger-my feet-blistered, calloused and cracked.


Both the hand & foot cream from O’Keeffe’s Company have been field tested & heartily approved by those with far more hardcore outdoor experience than me and my summertime gardening. Tara O’Keeffe, a pharmacist daughter of a farmer was commissioned by her father to create a to ease the pain in his hands and feet from long hard days out in fields. After much trial and error, Working Hands was created. If it was good enough for Bill O’Keeffe, it’s definitely good enough for me.

Healthy Feet Creme.

real simple weddings.

I’m still happily searching for all things wedding for the summer nuptials of my cousin Miss NYC. I love everything from Real Simple, and am thoroughly enjoying the section of their website devoted to celebrations which is where this lovely floral arrangement was found. They’re so simple and beautiful I can almost smell them.

baby bed.

Founded by two South African mothers, careful consideration was given to every aspect of the Lalapanzi Bed design. Envisioning a collection that is both elegant and soothing, Lalapanzi uses luxurious fabrics that are ultra soft, durable and easy to clean. The goal was to design a bed that was exclusive, yet truly practical and comforting to babies.

$167.
Folded measurements: 24″x16″x12″.

Lalapanzi is Zulu for “place to sleep” and if I were an infant, a Lalapanzi bed is where I would want to be. The beds are created to fit inside a crib so your baby can more easily make the transition from the womb to sleeping in their own space. It is lightweight and portable, {key for families on the go} and only the softest, coziest fabrics are used in its creation. Choose large {35″Lx24″Wx10″D} or small {29″Lx20″Wx9″D}.
