1. How do you like the Nuna Zaaz high chair?
Meggan: I just started using it and so far really like it! It’s small which is perfect for our not-so-big kitchen. The tray slides off and fits perfectly in the dishwasher as well!
Meggan: I use this three tier jewelry tray from Target for bracelets and rings and hang my necklaces on pins in my closet. Not the most creative idea (I don’t have much space) but my SIL made this amazing peg board to store her jewelry. I’ll definitely be doing this once I have more space!
We love inexpensive vacation looks, because it’s not something we’re going to be wearing a lot living in New York and Chicago. We always check out F21 – this looks just like Mikoh!, H&M (this is a great bikini – so flattering!), and Zara. We also always look for items on sale (tons of great designer beachwear on sale here!). We will splurge on bathing suits and a couple of coverups from Revolve or Shopbop (uhg, SO many cute things out right now!), but would rather save splurges for summer items we will wear more often – tops, sandals, etc. We’re both dying for these wedges for spring/summer!
Meggan: Drink a ton of water and pass on the peanuts (no salt)! I also agree with wearing no makeup on the plane and applying moisturizer. I like to wear a baseball cap if I’m going makeup-less.
Meggan: My favorite is banana, blueberries, spinach, kale, vanilla protein powder, flax seed and I add water to thin it out. You seriously cannot taste the greens and I use ground flax seed so it blends right in. I share a lot of my smoothie recipes on snapchat so be sure to follow!
Gap (they always have a sale, never ever pay full price at Gap lol), Old Navy, H&M, Crewcuts (can be more $$$ but they occasionally have great sales, like now!), and Zara Kids (our favorite).
Meggan: I have a busy 2016 travel wise. I’m going to Florida, Cabo, San Diego (a couple times!) and Puerto Rico. We’re also trying to plan a trip for the 4th of July but the location is TBD!
Meggan: During the day and under makeup I usually wear this sheer renewal cream by Colleen Rothschild. At night I use this Clarins cream after I cleanse. You may have seen on snapchat, but I just started using this 24-hour moisturizing cream (during the day) and this sleeping facial (at night) and LOVE them both. I’ve only been using them for about a week but I swear my face already looks brighter and healthier. I will be posting about these products in more depth soon!
Meggan: I use the same as Brooke (my shade is dusk)! We were actually together in NY when we first bought it. I love it for the following reasons: it’s lightweight (it doesn’t feel like you’re wearing makeup!), provides full-coverage, blends easily, and minimizes fine lines.
Non-tourist places I love: TriBeCa – just to walk around the neighborhood & grab a bite to eat (love Bubby’s for breakfast or lunch, sat next to Rebel Wilson the last time we were there!), SoHo (for the amazing shopping & the charm), DUMBO (+ the Brooklyn Bridge Park – best views of Manhattan), and Central Park…I know this is also on my touristy list, but it’s a must see & you can always find parts of the park that aren’t crowded, which is incredible in the middle of NYC!
Chicago: My favorite touristy sites are – The Signature Lounge on the 96th floor of the John Hancock (pretty decent drinks and best views of the city), Lincoln Park Zoo, Baseball game at Wrigley (I honestly enjoy Wrigley the bar scene more), shopping on the Magnificent Mile, Oak Street Beach, Chicago River Walk, The Bean, Architect boat tour (they serve cocktails on board!), and Shedd Aquarium (I’m obsessed with marine life and they have the cutest dolphins).
Non-tourist spots – Randolph Street (the BEST restaurants, also my hood!), Wicker Park (so much character), Southport commons, Big Star (the yummiest margaritas and fun patio), Armitage Ave. (cute shops and restaurants), and any of the street festivals in the summer (my favorites are Old Town Art Fair and Greek Fest).
