Friday Five Finds – new accessories, chickpea pasta & more


I’ve had a jam-packed week of taking care of the kids, trying to squeeze in writing, meetings and previews in the city, and hints of Meaningful Me Moments (example: last night’s Self Love Celebration hosted by my dear friend Nitika Chopra). Despite the fast-pace, high-voltage week, I’m super energized and happy for all the amazing personal and professional developments that are brewing. There will be so much more to share in the coming weeks and months; for now, here is a very happy themed Friday Five Finds. Enjoy and have an amazing weekend!

1. Black Sea Greenwich Clutch in Navy, Aqua and Wheat $595
Nothing makes me happier than a new handbag find. This is a brand to watch if you enjoy sleek, bold design.

2. Eye of the Sea Green Agate Bracelet $78
I’ve gotten so many compliments on my rose quart bracelet, this week, so I’m getting this color, too. Green Agate is for re-balancing mind, body and spirit. It’s calming and healing energy offers protection from stress and enhances self-confidence and creativity. Sign me up for that happy ride.

3. Happy Mat all-in-one plate & placemat $24.99
The silicone, which is non-toxic, PVC, BPA and phthalate free, suctions directly to the table making meal time happy time, once again.

4. Bullet Pocket Acne Aid $7.95
This magical cream got me out of a nasty acne jam this week. I wasn’t too happy Wednesday morning, come Thursday evening I was nearly blemish free.

5. Banza Chickpeas Pasta $30 for 6 boxes
Pasta makes my daughter very happy, but I’ve been on the hunt for yummy pasta that also loads her up with more goodness and less empty carbs. Ask and ye shall receive. Last night, at the Self Love Celebration, I had four plates and several interesting conversation with two brothers behind this pasta-made-out-of-chickpeas revolution.
