If you've been in the PFAMily for a while, you've probably heard of our More Than PFAM series. It's a quarterly newsletter where I share all my favorite things (outside of skincare 😉) that bring a little perfect into every aspect and area of my life.
The first More Than PFAM of 2022 was a PFAMily edition where each member of our team shared their lifestyle favorite of the season. Originally shared in February, these winter picks highlight how our team takes the PFAM vibes from the office, to the home, and beyond. Now they are available on the PFAM blog so no one misses out on the perfect vibes!
Practice Owner and Provider
Whether it's for a holiday, birthday, special achievement, anniversary, or just because, there are reasons to celebrate the people you love pretty much all year long (this is 'loving your perfect' in action PFAMily!). And it just so happens I have a winning idea for an absolutely decadent gift. I discovered Send A Cake when a delivery was recently made to our office in celebration of a birthday. It seems at first like a sweetly packaged, little cake. Until you open the package and are surprised with faux butterflies and flowers exploding EVERYWHERE. The cake is delicious, you can customize the packaging with pictures of you and your love…from start to finish this indulgent gift is unforgettably perfect.
Recently I’m loving this podcast series from the Huberman Lab. Here, Dr. Andrew Huberman, a neurobiologist and ophthalmology professor from Stanford University, discusses brain and nervous system function. He breaks down complex neurobiology elements and educates us not only on how our brain works, but also provides tools for mastering sleep, metabolism regulation, hormone balancing and more! One of his more recent podcasts discusses "the biology of slowing and reversing aging" - so cool!
Client Care Team Manager
I’ve been a bookworm since birth. Reading brings me a sense of peace as well as adventure and enlightenment. I recently devoured “The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo” in less than 24 hours. It is about beauty, strength, empowerment and fighting for a love that you want and deserve. Truly incredible. I get my books at my local library but it is available everywhere.
I have never been much of a blush girl because I have pink undertones already, but I find in the winter I need to add a little bit of extra dimension and color to my face. With four different color options in one palette, this Benefit Rosy Pink Blush is super customizable, and it comes in a cute box that fits almost anywhere. This compact blush kit is small but mighty!
Special Projects Manager
This bright pink number from Free People is what my winter dreams are made of! I have been living in this both around the house, on long winter walks, and even throwing it on over my yoga clothes for to and from class. It runs big, so size down and enjoy!
This may be a total mom pick, but nonetheless it's brought me great joy; An app called Chatbooks. Simply put, this app makes you feel like you have your life organized and captured in a beautiful way. All you have to do is select photos from your phone and voila, a gorgeous book of your most special memories is delivered to your door. My two year old boy asks to look through our "This Is Us" books all time, a total win win!
My winter favorite has been the Moroccan oil treatment by Moroccanoil! As someone who has always struggled with embracing my natural curls, this hair treatment has encouraged me to take better care of my hair and embrace my natural beauty. Not only does it make my hair feel super healthy, but it also makes me feel super confident. I would totally recommend it to anyone with textured hair!
I’ve recently been binging Emily in Paris and obsessing over all the looks. But I’m especially loving all the tweed that we are seeing! So in the spirit of Emily in Paris, you have to check out Sandro’s latest tweed skirts. They are amazing!
I’m still totally obsessed with this new Aviator Nation sweatsuit I got myself for Christmas! I basically live in it and have already worn out its welcome in my home according to my husband and teenage daughter 😉. If I'm having an off day and don't know what to wear, I throw this baby on and it instantly helps me feel trendy and put together while staying super cozy!
One thing that I have been really loving lately is my 8 hour night recovery lip balm! It keeps my lips hydrated and smooth ( especially since I use accutane and am prone to very dry lips). It is very sweet and the smell reminds me of the winter seasons! I use it mostly at night but will apply in the daytime if I am in need of a little extra moisture.
Back Office Manager
I always love to layer when putting together an outfit but the one (and only) downside of San Diego's beautiful sunny winters is when creating that stylish layered winter look, it will leave you sweating. My go-to top layer this season is this amazing leather shirt/jacket from Aritzia. It allows you to create a lux look without being restricted in thick leather. It is comfortable enough to wear all day and inside as well!
The best beanie ever: I’m a sucker for a good beanie. Not because my head gets cold, but because it’s my ticket out of figuring out what to do with my crazy mom life hair, and the right beanie instantly provides a “finished” look paired with any outfit...which these days tends to be athleisure 24/7. This season, Lululemon’s Knit Chevron Beanie is it!
From the whole PFAM team, we hope More Than PFAM has left you inspired to love, appreciate, and create perfection in your life. That is ultimately why we do everything we do.
