Our friend John came over and photographed me at home with my kids for Nico and Nate recently, a sweet site that interviews families with two brothers. I'm so happy to have "real" photos of my family, not just all photos taken with my phone!
West Elm came to our studio for a visit recently and took these photos of us during production, doing our thing. Click over to hear about a typical day in our studio, and what inspires us.
Our sweet friend + ceramicist Helen Levi was asked by Vogue recently what her ideal hostess gift would be and she said our Desert Rose Atmosphere Mist. Check out the full piece here to see what other chic women like Padmi Laksmi and photographer Alice Gao are hoping for.
Helen is the co-founder and Creative Director of Fuzzco, the Charleston-based design agency behind many an awesome branding project (think Mailchimp, Bonobos, and Etsy). You'd never guess how hard this lady works being as that she's so nice, humble and chill! We met on vacation in upstate New York and reunited when she asked us to make a pair of signature fragrances: E.d'E. Black and E.d'E. Blue.
One chilly night a couple of months ago, the gorgeous Padma Lakshmi came by our studio to get a crash course in perfume making. Tazo is debuting a new chai tea latte and who better to be their spokeswoman than Padma, who grew up drinking her grandmother's chai every day. We smelled everything from Japanese yuzu citrus to fresh jasmine together, talking about how flavors and scents meld to concoct fragrant recipes. Take a peek at our video above!
Last Saturday my friend Joanna invited me to Madison Square Park to drink milkshakes (yum!) at Shake Shack and model Hatch's new Spring/Summer line of maternity clothing. Her friend Anna came along too, and we dished on what life with two kids will be like. I'm due June 15th - so soon!
You can see the full post with more photos here. I ended up taking this trench home with me. I'm hoping it will be good for post baby too!

I was so incredibly honored to be included in The New York Times' Food Section last week for their column, Close At Hand. Each week, writer Ligaya Mishan seeks out a New Yorker and photographs him or her in their home with a precious kitchen object. I chose my mom's lacquer trays. Growing up, my mom would always serve me an after school snack on a tray. I didn't know it at the time but the trays are all antiques, hand-carved about a hundred years ago. They're a symbol of her care for me, and remind me to be a kind and gentle mother with my own son.
