On this Friday afternoon, I give you…. Thoughts of spring and summer — they will come, one way or another.
On my mind: Butter London’s Spring 2012 nail colors. I could do with a happy shot of one of those (I’m thinking Disco Biscuit, that fab hot pink.)
And this adorable swimsuit — a bikini, no less! — from Shabby Apple. It’s only $26.
Last: a quote I’ve found enormously helpful lately. And I’m not really a quote-y type. I came across it while working on a freelance editorial project recently for Parenting.com:
“There is no way to be a perfect mother, and a million ways to be a good one.” — Jill Churchill
As my friend Amy says, RIGHT ON.
Happy weekend, mamas.

Time to hit pause here at Shiny Brite — I hope (think!) it will be a short one, but I’ll have to see how things shake out here in the next little bit.
We had an awesome month of December, so thanks for finding us and for reading! It makes me feel better to know you’re there.
Here’s a little something for you today: The Best Beaches for Families, via Parents.com
More to come. Just don’t know when.
Keep an eye out!

Hey, Brooklyn mamas of daughters!
Looking for fun ways to keep your adventurous girl busy in the city this winter? Of course you are!
Well, Magnolia attended an amazing summer camp this year I was so happy with that I contacted the woman who founded it about doing some freelance work for her — and the Curious Jane Winter Field Trip Series is the collaborative end result. Great trips around the city, all girls, all fun, all winter!
Come sign up! From flying on a trapeze to cooking to building something cool, here’s a brief description of what we’ve got lined up (go to Curious Jane for complete deets):
* Curious Jane Takes on The Sketchbook Project in Carroll Gardens — Have an art book published!
Sunday, December 11

Sunday, January 22

For more on the camp and its founder, Samantha Razook Murphy, read my interview with her….
Hope to see your girls (with a friend or sibling) there this winter!
