Lars’ Must Sees in New York City

New YorkI had the opportunity to go to New York last month for work and lucky for me, I got to go back for round two this past weekend! New York is one of my favorite places in the world and I will never pass up an opportunity to explore the big apple. Baby J accompanied me on both trips, and though it slowed my usual pace, there’s nothing sweeter than seeing faces light up once a baby is around. It can melt even the crustiest of hearts (see my story below!). I felt so empowered to find that I could still visit my favorite places with a baby.

You may be thinking: “Brittany, how do you get around New York of all places with a BABY?” Well, thanks to Uber, we were able to navigate the city seamlessly. It can be done! And today I’m giving you a rundown of my favorite shops, restaurants, and sights of New York so you can start planning your own trip. And whether you have a baby, traveling solo, or a whole gang of girls, Uber’s new On-Time Pickups Guarantee is sure to make your trip stress-free.

I had no idea I could be this excited about toilet paper

I had no idea I could be this excited about toilet paper, but I’ve been proven wrong! Trust me guys, you are going to be blown away. This toilet paper is the most adorable I’ve ever seen, exhibits hilarious and clever branding, and the mission behind the product is truly inspiring. Who Gives A Crap (yes, that is the company’s genius name), is an amazing company creating toilet paper from 100% recycled materials. They donate 50% of their profits to help build toilets for the 2.3 billion people without access to one. Good for your bum, great for the world!

The House That Lars Built for Winter Water Factory

The house that lars built for Winter Water FactoryThe day has arrived! I’m pleased to announce The House That Lars Built’s collaboration with Winter Water Factory! As a new mother, I was more than excited to team up with this beautiful brand to create clothing that I could comfortably dress myself and Baby J in. Listen, I didn’t have children not to match them! See what I mean?
The house that lars built for Winter Water Factory
Since its conception, I’ve strived to build a distinct identity for The House That Lars Built. I seek out things that emit lovely bursts of whimsy, color, and quirkiness in order to create a more artful life for myself and those I come in contact with. Partnering with Winter Water Factory was a natural dream come true as I’ve been a big fan for many years (here’s proof!), and I’ve been waiting for the day when I could wrap up my child in their ever-so-soft organic cotton goodness.
I hope you love the new line as much as we loved making it. Make sure to tag us in any future photos of you and baby wearing anything from the collection using #LarsforWWF so I can bask in your cute, matching glory! I’ll be right there with you! (please note: the women’s collection will be launching shortly. Stay tuned!)
The collection comes in two color ways and a variety of styles for boys, girls, babies, women, and even accessories so you’re sure to find something for everyone. And stay tuned for sweats for women later on in the season (my favorite of them all),

I’ll be sharing more about the process of the collection later this week, but for now, the shop is live!

San Clemente book signing

In June I headed to my hometown of San Clemente, California, for a book signing at Missy’s on Del Mar. Have you been to San Clemente? It’s a low-key beach town in Southern Orange County. Whereas Laguna Beach is a bit more schamltzy, San Clemente is a more understated surfer’s town. And Del Mar street is the a charming shopping street. If you’re gonna go to San Clemente, this is on the top 3 things of things to do! As you can see from my exquisite tan, I was raised in paradise 😉 (read: I haven’t lived there since high school hence why I’m pasty white)

Missy went above and beyond the call of duty by making a ton of projects from the book, even installing a balloon arch. Come take a look through all the photos to see all the great details. It really was so so dreamy. Plus, I LOVED seeing so many of my old dear friends who I don’t get to see very often.

Jasper accompanied me, as always, and he was once again, the star of the show.
