Girl crush: Courtney Adamo

Oh hello there Hart Beat. As I’m sure many of you dear readers are aware, our girl Joanna posted a great new series on her blog the other day entitled “My beauty uniform.” In her first post of the series Jo (come on girl, we’re friends now) wrote about her friend and “one of the sweetest and most effortlessly beautiful people I’ve ever met,” Courtney Adamo.

Oh Miss Courtney, can I have your life? Can I have it?

I’m sure that Courtney, the founder and co-owner of a baby boutique online aggregator site called Babyccino, is another European form of Joanna Goddard but at this point I don’t care. I am fascinated by her life in London, her four beautiful children, her effortless style, and the work life that she has created for herself.
Oh Courtney, tell me your secrets (and not just about the two hundred dollar face cream you use, I’m on an entry level budget here). Apparently Courtney met her husband while living in San Francisco and then the two of them moved to London for her husbands job. While living in England Mrs. Adamo began a blog with her other mommy friends living around Europe and now that has turned into Babccino.
It’s fine, Hart Beat. We all can’t have our lives together like this. It is fun though to read articles about her life and marvel at her ridiculously clean house (YOU HAVE FOUR CHILDREN). So, on this drab Monday, let’s live vicariously through my newest girl crush.

Vacation Planning with Old Hollywood

Hi Hart Beat. Happy Friday! It’s crummy and rainy in Greenpoint today but I couldn’t care less. My favorite coffee shop just opened a branch in my neighborhood and I am so warm and relaxed here. Last February my mom and I took a trip to the Caribbean to defrost and I’m so lucky and excited to be doing the same this year.

Unlike last year, I’m with it enough this year to get excited about heading south for a week. To prepare for the sun onslaught and to give those of you in the Northeast and beyond a Caribbean vacation glow without leaving home, let’s peruse some hollywood icons celebrating the sol. If only my life could look like a magazine photo shoot as well…

Grace Kelly killin’ it in the white bikini. And look at that hat, pure genius.

It’s fine. It’s just Gwyneth and Jude hanging out on the beach.

And Brigitte! That hat!

Oh Marilyn…

Let’s hang out!

Style Icon: Jane Birkin

Happy Thursday, Hart Beat! I’m so happy to be relaxing in my favorite neighborhood today on my day off. Brooklyn, you are always pulling at my heartstrings. Anyway, as many of you have probably noticed, I’ve been pretty fashion obsessed lately. Today I wanted to share some pictures of my fashion icon of late, Jane Birkin.

P.S. Yes, while writing this post I did think about Birkin bags obsessively. And yes, that means that “A Birkin bag! A Birkin bag for Rorey!” played in my head over and over again. You’re welcome.
