The Sunday Edit
How are you? How are you feeling? My kids have been on Spring Break this week and we’ve been loving the downtime together. Brody turned one a few weeks ago so we had a mini celebration at home. J and I decided that once things feel safe again, we’re having a big party to celebrate him. Brody also started walking a few days ago! This week has been filled with highs and lows, very similar to when he was born right in the beginning of the pandemic.
On the low side, I’m really missing my grandparents. I keep thinking I need to plan a visit to Brooklyn so they can see the kids and then I realize I can’t. Whenever things are difficult, I turn back to writing, which helps me process everything. That and retail therapy, obviously. I made a few Spring wardrobe updates. Want to see them?
I signed up for an online writing class this month, which is giving me something major to look forward to. It’s funny how the older you get, the more you miss and appreciate school and learning new things. Happy Passover and Happy Easter to everyone celebrating. Have a wonderful Sunday! Tanya

Having dinner surrounded by literary legends sounds like a dream. Now, it can be a reality too. The Head and the Hand, a local bookstore in Philadelphia, is offering date nights so you can have the entire bookstore to yourself and your significant other to browse and have a romantic dinner. The booking includes complimentary wine or beer, a curated playlist and 15% off any purchases made at the end of the date. // The Head and the Hand
I finally found a good quality long trench coat and it’s on sale for less than $60. // Abercrombie
One thing I love and look forward to is wearing a new pajama short set to bed. It doesn’t have to be expensive (this set is on sale for $26) but it makes getting ready for bed feel so luxurious. The pair I linked from Honeydew feels soft and cozy; it’s my third set from the brand. // Nordstrom
I use this eyebrow pencil by Róen to fill in sparce areas and it looks so natural. // Róen
The only mascara you need, seriously. I’ve been using this one for over a year now. // Sephora
