Babies may be predisposed to eat anything, but I still try my best to cook fruits, veggies and other healthy goodies in a way that's appealing to a toddler.

How to Look Stylish When You're Dressing a Baby Bump MIND.BODY.NATURAL BEAUTY.

Pregnancy dressing is tricky business. By month six, you're about twice your normal size -- and growing -- so you can pretty much forget about wearing anything you already own. But nobody wants to shell out a small fortune on a bunch of clothes you may never wear again. While I love inexpensive cotton basics, a lot of the cheapie maternity options are made of synthetic materials that feel kind of gnarly -- not what you want to wrap around your body when you're creating life.   read more

How to Pick a Dress That Will Make You Feel Like a Million Bucks MIND.BODY.NATURAL BEAUTY.

I consider myself fortunate to have a career that requires me to dress up. My style is generally laid-back, so sometimes I need a nudge to change out of my favorite jeans.

Toddlers: Human Garbage Disposals or Picky Eaters MIND.BODY.NATURAL BEAUTY.

It's great age and there's never a dull moment, but needless to say, one-year-olds have their quirks. Toddlers can be pretty picky eaters, but luckily mine seems to possess a very diverse palate -- or at the very least, a high tolerance for my cooking. She eats anything and everything. Garlic? Done. Olive tapenade? Sure. Put a plate in front of her, and she takes it down.   read more

Ask me my favorite makeup look, and I'll ask you if lip balm counts as makeup. But that doesn't mean I'm a makeup hater. When I sang at the New York City Ballet Spring Gala in April (a total pinch-me moment), I wore a strong cat eye that I really loved.   read more
