Top 5 Podcasts for 2018

March 29, 2018

Podcasts are an amazing alternative to music. Whether listening on a commute to work, running errands or cleaning the house — these podcasts are a great way to be entertained and informed.

MISSING RICHARD SIMMONS

“On February 15, 2014, fitness guru Richard Simmons disappeared. He stopped teaching his regular exercise class at Slimmons, cut off his closest friends, and removed himself from the public eye after decades as one of the most accessible celebrities in the world. Nobody has heard from him – and no one knows why he left. Filmmaker Dan Taberski was a Slimmons regular and a friend of Richard’s. Missing Richard Simmons is Dan’s search for Richard – and the deeper he digs, the stranger it gets.”

UP AND VANISHED

“Up and Vanished is an investigative podcast that explores the unsolved disappearance of Georgia beauty queen and high school teacher, Tara Grinstead. The 11-year-old cold case is the largest case file in the history of Georgia. Follow along as host Payne Lindsey, a filmmaker turned amateur investigator, examines old case evidence and re-interviews persons of interest. What happened to Tara Grinstead?”

Up and Vanished started their second season in January 2018, looking into the Atlanta Child Murders in Atlanta Monster.

ARMCHAIR EXPERT WITH DAX SHEPARD

“Hi, I’m Dax Shepard, and I love talking to people. I am endlessly fascinated by the messiness of being human, and I find people who are vulnerable and honest about their struggles and shortcomings to be incredibly sexy. I invite you to join me as I explore other people’s stories. We will celebrate, above all, the challenges and setbacks that ultimately lead to growth and betterment. What qualifies me for such an endeavor? More than a decade of sobriety, a degree in Anthropology and four years of improv training. I will attempt to discover human “truths” without any laboratory work, clinical trials or data collection. I will be, in the great tradition of 16th-century scientists, an Armchair Expert.”

TED RADIO HOUR

“Guy Raz explores the emotions, insights, and discoveries that make us human. The TED Radio Hour is a narrative journey through fascinating ideas, astonishing inventions, fresh approaches to old problems, and new ways to think and create.”

FREAKONOMICS RADIO

Neutral Nurseries

March 22, 2018

 

For those of you wanting to be surprised or those that just don’t want the traditional pink or blue, neutral base colors are the way to go in your nursery. Adding a bright pop of color to any room will help to bring it to life. Don’t hesitate to use a teal or blue wall in a baby girl’s room, and then add orange accents for interest.

These paint swatches are great gender-neutral options, leaving you with tons of design paths to explore to personalize baby’s space.

All colors here can be found at Sherwin Williams in their various collections.

Milk Nursingwear March Style Guide

March 1, 2018

Milk Nursingwear’s Wide-striped nursing top is part of our new 2018 spring line. This casual, fun nursing top is a lightweight sweater knit. Its empire lift-up nursing opening makes breastfeeding in public convenient and discreet. It’s paired here with a slim jean, sling-back clogs, and a boho satchel.

 

Our Flirty nursing top is another of our new additions. The smocked v-neckline and sleeve cuffs add flair to this nursing top. Nurse effortlessly by lifting the top empire layer to access openings underneath. For a day out, this looks great with olive skinny jeans, a blazer, tote and a pointed ballet flat.
