Thankswapping

What is Thankswapping you ask? It’s when you share sweaters with your friends during Thanksgiving. haha  I had the pleasure of partnering with Target on a fun style series and in the first episode Angel and I get in the holiday spirit by swapping sweaters. You should probably just watch my video to see for yourself.

Cook Dinner With Us

Helllllooo Monday! Michael and I recently became obsessed with Blue Apron. What’s Blue Apron you ask? It’s a meal planning and grocery delivery service. Sounds like it would be really expensive right? WRONG. It’s $10 a meal per person.  Shall I repeat that? Every week you receive a package with the ingredients for three different meals. The recipes are extremely creative with a focus on seasonal items, like Thai Pumpkin Curry. (I made that last week and it was SO F*CKING good!) Each meal takes about 40 minutes to prepare and has anywhere from 500-700 calories. I think my favorite thing about Blue Apron is I don’t have to think about what’s for dinner or go to the grocery store. This service is definitely for the person who wants to cook, but doesn’t want to plan or shop. That pretty much sums me up! In the video below we prepare a fabulous Salmon dinner…. and devour a bottle of wine. Enjoy!

Living the Dream

Yesterday was like a dream. I spent the day with an awesome crew and my son at a private house on one of my favorite beaches in Malibu. Hi perfect. Here are some behind the scenes pics for our Mom’s View holiday video. I CAN’T WAIT until it’s live. Just a quick reminder to go after your dreams NOW (like today!) because your future self will thank you ; )   Sharzad Kiadeh Sharzad Kiadeh Sharzad Kiadeh Sharzad Kiadeh Sharzad Kiadeh Sharzad Kiadeh

Special thanks to my girl Alana for snapping some more pics of me and Idris. Coincidentally this is the same beach that we shot my maternity photos.

Have a great day!



Crossroads Kitchen

I’ve been hearing about Crossroads Kitchen for some time now and I finally made the trek over. It’s a completely plant based (aka vegan) menu with a focus on Mediterranean cuisine. We went for dinner and I was pleasantly surprised to see the decor is very sexy, dark and perfect for date night. I think people have a misconception about vegan food being hippy-ish or bland… not at all the case here! Let’s talk about the food shall we? I tried the artichoke oysters, the kite hill cheese plate, pappardelle bolognese, oven roasted kabocha squash and some other favorites. Umm, hi delish. I loved everything. I wanted to eat so much more, but the babe was getting squirmy so I have to save it for next time. Chef Tal Ronnen is the creative force behind this unique dining experience. He’s one of the most celebrated vegan chefs and it’s obvious why. He cuisine does not disappoint! I highly recommend it, whether or not you eat meat, you can find something tasty to enjoy.

I Froze Myself!

Right around 7-8 months pregnant I noticed some serious joint pain happening, especially in my wrists. I figured it was due to the fact that I gained a ton of weight. (Hi 55 pounds) Fast forward to now, I’ve lost a decent amount of weight (still 15 to go) but my wrist pain has gotten worse. After multiple trips to the doctor I decided it was time to freeze myself. Wait, what!?! I know, so random right? Apparently freezing yourself is great for inflammation, arthritis and a ton of other ailments. I headed to the Cryo Health Care Clinic in West Hollywood and hopped in a machine that was set at 220 below. Repeat -220 degrees. You’re going to have to watch the video to see what happens!

Maternity Pics

Remember that one time I had a massive belly!?! Umm… yeah, me too. So I finally got my hands on my maternity pics and I wanted to share them. I remember feeling so large and in charge and I seriously did not want to take pics of myself… but looking back I’m thrilled I did. It’s crazy to imagine that my wiggly little dude was once all up in my belly. Daaang. Oh how I love my little shmush. Anywho, enjoy the pics and have an amazing weekend. Also- for any of you preggies out there, TAKE MATERNITY PICS! Your future self will thank you. Maternity Pictures Screen Shot 2014-10-17 at 4.29.00 PM Screen Shot 2014-10-17 at 4.29.22 PM Screen Shot 2014-10-17 at 4.29.35 PM Screen Shot 2014-10-17 at 4.30.32 PM Screen Shot 2014-10-17 at 4.31.38 PMScreen Shot 2014-10-15 at 7.05.56 PM Screen Shot 2014-10-15 at 7.06.44 PM Screen Shot 2014-10-15 at 7.07.12 PM Screen Shot 2014-10-15 at 7.07.28 PM Screen Shot 2014-10-15 at 7.07.54 PM Screen Shot 2014-10-15 at 7.08.25 PM Screen Shot 2014-10-15 at 7.08.52 PM

Sh*T Be Cray

Hello Thursday! Things have been so cray cray the past few days with work and I’m still trying to get settled in my new house and I’m trying to raise a decent human. How do people balance everything without the help of meth!?! Don’t worry, I’m not on meth, just wishful thinking. SO back to my jam-packed week. On Tuesday I was invited to speak on a fashion and business panel about how to work with brands and get paid. I loved sharing the stage with my fellow online movers and shakers. We’re all in similar industries but earn our money in completely unique ways, and I love hearing about how they get their hustle on. Speaking of hustle, yesterday I was asked to join a live cooking hangout with Ana Gasteyer, Laura Vitale and Weight Watchers. Just go ahead and pinch me. I cyber hung out with someone from SNL!?! Is this real lyfe? (Can we say shweddy balls!?!)  Below are a few snaps from the madness and my latest episode of The Mom’s View. Enjoy!Screen Shot 2014-10-09 at 10.54.53 AM Screen Shot 2014-10-09 at 10.55.15 AM Screen Shot 2014-10-09 at 10.55.40 AM
