Aire Ancient Baths – New York City

April 10th, 2014

What an experience Aire Ancient Baths are. An absolute gem for New York moms who need a spa day! I went along with a friend a couple of weeks ago and have been dying to share this place with you.

Upon arrival, we sat on leather couches and warm retro chairs and sipped mint tea from silver teapots. Then we were ushered into their beautifully appointed change rooms and then made our way to the baths. This is when the real experience started. We entered a whole new world reminiscent of ancient Rome –  with the experience as in Roman times when the people went from warm to hot to cold to steam and then had a massage. My favorite bath was the salt bath, where you can actually float without a care. We had a massage afterwards which topped off the experience. I have to say that this place is absolutely a unique experience and quite amazing. They have succeeded in achieving a true bath house feeling that does seems ancient and for me, the whole aspect of feeling like I had stepped back in time was fascinating. The space is beautiful and relaxing  and they have managed to make every single detail a perfection even down to lighting. The staff are also extremely friendly and helpful. I will definitely be going back here.

I have included tons of photos as I really want to give you an idea of the gorgeous architecture and design of this place.

Okay, so this is seriously cool and ingenious.  These roadmap tees by Bky Kid are designed to attract your little ones give you a back massage while you just chill out. What a fabulous way to get a rest,  a massage and keep the kids busy playing, all at the same time. I just asked Oona if she would like to play on this shirt and she said, “Yes”! Looks, like I have one in my future. But I wonder how relaxing it will be if the girls fight over it…

Fall Clothes for the Brooklyn Mom (and Beyond)

November 13th, 2013

This is a guest post from Donna Duarte, Style Editor for Woman’s Day and author of the wonderful Motherburg blog.

It took me ten years living in New York to finally buy a black fall coat. Coming from a sunshine state I was use to wearing clothes with color and print, happy clothes my co-workers would exclaimed. I would say that now I have a balance wardrobe of neutrals and prints. The solid palette works longer and if you know me you may notice I wear the same things over and over for I just tend to rework my wardrobe with great pieces that have multiple uses. I also like no fuss cuts but with a twist in the design department. Which is why I love the top from Zara with the leather pockets. I’d wear that to work with a leather skirt and jeans on a Saturday morning. I am a sucker for the printed jean, I love that they bring a wardrobe up a notch and find them perfect for moms since they are quite comfortable. The leopard coat is perfect if most of your wardrobe consists of solid-classic pieces for this coat is fun yet chic. I am a believer in the hat and I’m thinking of getting a more dressier version of the baseball hat I wear any chance I get. The navy Baggu tote is perfect for all year round and the gap boot, $100? Finally a well made boot that isn’t $400 plus.
