Never Leaving My Bed Again


It’s official – I’m obsessed with Parachute Home bedding. (No over dramatization here, folks. I’m truly obsessed.) When the Parachute team reached out about collaborating, I was 100% on board, given the luxurious yet simple aesthetic I discovered on their website. However, I had no idea just how pleased I would be with the bedding.

I ordered the White Percale Sheet Set, the White Percale Duvet cover, a White Percale Top Sheet (although many don’t use a top sheet, I prefer to have one between the duvet cover and my body…personal preference), and the Essential Quilt in Oatmeal. The quality is superb – the sheets are super soft, with a nice weight to them, and I just feel completely enveloped in goodness when I’m in my bed. Truly superb bedding at an accessible price.

Here’s a peek.


Although, the bedding usually looks like this most of the time.


(So cozy, right?) I’m in love. For real.




Odds and Ends


1. 15 things to do when the world is shitty and terrifying.

2. If some of you recall, Wito was the chubbiest baby ever. Here are 10 things moms of chubby babies know.

3. This interview with Carrie Fisher is so fantastic. Tell it like it is, Carrie!

4. Technically, celebrating Christmas in February would be so much less stressful.

5. I would TOTALLY go to this step aerobic class.

6. “One should never have to ask anyone else why they are worthy of being seen. Every human is given a body and a face and then spends the rest of his or her life trying to feel at home there. Worthiness is part of the basic package.” A really interesting read regarding selfies.

7. “…you are probably going to run into this thing, this fear that you’re bumping up against the limits of your ability.”  The Imposter Syndrome. Have you heard of it? I definitely struggle with it.

8. Parents embracing their inner child. Pretty funny.

9. A great little article on wine by a lovely French lass.

10. The 2015 Hater’s Guide to the Williams Sonoma catalog had me laughing. #barkyeah hahaaaa

11. Oh, you guys. Everlane now has a kids’ line? STOP IT. (Besides the mini stuff, wouldn’t mind the chunky wool crewneck for myself.)

12. And last, but certainly not least, 21 grandmas who have absolutely no filter.  Enjoy.

Happy weekend!

All Smiles This Holiday Season!

I am a member of the Invisalign Advisory Board, and am receiving complimentary treatment. All opinions are fully my own.

I haven’t written about my Invisalign progress in quite some time – I’m currently finishing up some bite refinements, but I am beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel, and I am thrilled with the way my teeth look! I feel, especially after a recent 4-month stint with traditional metal brackets on my back teeth (more on that later…), like I’m more than qualified to sing the praises of Invisalign. For me, there’s just no comparison in regards to ease of use and general comfort.

But! That’s not what I’m here today to talk about…I’m here to offer you a chance to win a free Invisalign treatment for yourself. If you’ve been thinking of looking into Invisalign, this is the time to do it. (You can find a doctor near you here.) New year, new teeth, new you. #fistbump

Please check out the giveaway and enter as many ways as you’d like. I would be so excited if a Whoorl reader won the treatment! Details below.
