Happy New Year and Happy Friday!! I took some time off over the break to chill with the kids and recover from the exhaustion and excitement of the holiday season. Truth be told there were plenty of days I stayed in my pjs all day!! I was sick but I was also just chilling out. Now it’s a new year and a new buzz of excitement is in the air. It’s Fresh Picks day and I am excited to share some of my absolute favorite Girl Moms that are rocking motherhood according to Instagram. I love seeing the joys of motherhood played out on Instagram plus throw in some spirited, strong, beautiful and sparkly girl power in the mix and I love it all!

Oh ma golly, tomorrow is Christmas EVE!! Who doesn’t want it to end?! I feel like I’ve waited so long for this time of year and it just flies right by. What are y’all doing this weekend? We are staying put and although I will miss seeing our family in Canada, I think we needed this. 🎄🎅🏼💃🏻 #Christmas2016
That side eye. 👀 Veronica used to ask me why her hair couldn’t be straight and short like her brother’s.. 🙊 I tell her curly locks are pretty cool too since she got it from her grandmothers. I’m so happy to be working with @dove to encourage mothers to pass along hair confidence to their daughters, because chances are, that turns into confidence in who they are as a person. Join the fun and share a #LoveYourHair selfie with a little lady in your life. You can also create and share a custom animated message via the link in my bio! #LoveYourHair #sponsored photo @moeblake
I have been working hard to appreciate the cold this winter and get outside with the littles. Honestly it’s a ton of work layering and packing for me and the littles, but has been so worth it and so much fun!! Lol in this pic she kept saying: “It’s blocking” and I had no idea what she meant, until I looked down and realized she meant her hat was blocking her vision 😂😂 #adventureparenting #adventuringwithkids
Sisterly L O V E. 💕 // It’s been a long couple of weeks (or years? I’m not sure 🙈), but we’ve squeezed every last ounce of time together out of winter break. Naomi tried & did so many new things (everything from going to a spa to going to her first movie), further proving she really is 3 going on 13. She & Tova have gotten in some solid bonding time (if you watch my Instastory, then you’ve seen!) & as it turns out, seeing your kids laugh together is one of life’s great joys. But all good things must come to an end & school starts TODAY! 🎉 Am I the only one excited to get back into their routine?
The moral of this story is that as I’m learning, if you want your daughter to love her hair, love the way she looks, love her body and love herself it starts with you. We ARE the example. What we say and do is what they hear, see and reflect upon. I’m talking about hair and so much more over on Hello Splendid. My friends at @Dove want you to share your #LoveYourHair photo too and take a minute to show the little girl in your life just how wonderful she is exactly as she is by visiting LoveYourHair.Dove.com or by clicking the link in my bio!. #DovePartner http://bit.ly/2gDYDZ8
Русский сильно ниже⬇️ Pic from this morning, story from Christmas: French are speaking about food during the meal, I wrote about it hundred times already. But as you requested , here is what was served during the Christmas lunch: After one hour and an half of aperitive, so long that I have no strength writing about such canapés développés , was served Salmon, smoked by a chef friend of my in-laws. We are eating this salmon every year, and each and every year we are discussing all the details of the smoking/salting process, on which year he did it best, on which he changes the recipe and how the taste was different from the usual one, as for this salmon is perfectly matching a special white wine, and the wine of this year from specific hill is not matching a slightly too fat salmon, that some notes of some flowers in this wine were not enough and bla bla bla. As soon as the discussion went on the wine I got lost, but thank God they did not come back on the salmon process again. During this part, 5 (oh yes) kids were sitting at the other end of the table separated from the adults just by some flowers. Quietly. Even Raphaëlle. 30 minutes later- duck. Cassolette de confit de canard aux grillottes marinées au Porto, pommes au four grillottées, pommes duchesse. On this Google translate will be of some help; for me this is simple, no not simple, but still duck with cherries, potatoes and apple, baked in some alcohol, but my mother in-law was speaking about it in such a way that I had the feeling that we are eating some gold , stuffed with petrol. And again half hour discussion on the best way to make melt the duck fat, with which wine it is better to cook it, and when to add the cherries. At this time I am already only drinking and keeping quiet…The wine of a color and a year I can not distinguish is helping. Next – cheese. French have 365 sorts of cheese, so that the one served at Christmas shall not only be cheese but super cheese.This time we have got 5 kinds, two of them goat cheese. For some strange reason I decided to declare that one of them has some truffle taste. You can not even imagine what happened next. The family split in two parts, one on my side,⬇️
I’d love to tell you that this moment was unrehearsed- that my hair is freshly washed and that she is the sweetest angel that just loves giving her mommy kisses- but I’ll save the bullshit and let you in on the goods: I forced her into this picture by threatening to instead take a photo with her friend, my hair is on day 3 no wash and I sometimes seriously believe she is Satan sent from hell to punish me for my high school days. #motherhoodunplugged
