Beyoncé in a Bathing Suit

I know the Bey posts are getting out of control on here, but I can’t help but compare our lives right now, since they’re so similar.


Photos were posted yesterday of her frolicking in the Caribbean surf– in a bathing suit, 3 months after having a baby. GOOD FOR HER. Because you know what? She just proved she’s human by knowingly being photographed in a skirted one-piece. And I’ll bet you she never imagined the words “Beyoncé” + “skirted one-piece” would ever be a viable Google search term, but my parents’ neighbor told them the planets were aligned yesterday (and incidentally, that possibly means a broom will stand on its own).

So I’d like to encourage us all to embrace our new stomachs– and by embrace, I mean tastefully cover up– by highlighting a few new mama-suits I think Beyoncé would approve of.

1. Land’s End Tulip Slender Suit $120

2. J. Crew Ruched Femme Tank $84 (Also available in D-cup, $86, or $1 extra per big boob)

3. Spanx Whittle Waistline Draped One-Piece $198 (Has anyone tried Spanx swimwear? Is it worth that much?)

When It Rains, It Pours

Wowwee Kazowie!

First, this:


Then, this!

New piece up on the HuffPost today. Big thanks to Leah Bloom at The Family Institute at Northwestern University for talking with me.

Thanks for all of you who’ve come to check out the site today. It truly means the world to me.

I was about to leave the house for a stroll with the baby. On my way out the door, I saw this photo of Bey strolling with Blue Ivy yesterday. I looked in the mirror and decided I can do better than stretched out boyfriend jeans and flats that are a little gritty from the baking soda I sprinkled in them to lessen their smell.

I hope. But maybe not.
