Upper West Side feels like Fall and I LOVE IT!!!! We have been loving walking up and down the streets seeing all the window displays, pumpkins at all the markets, and best of all…. THE STOOPS!!! Holy cow. They are amazing.

Today is a quick post but wanted to share some pics from the weekend! Also it is my favorite sale of the year – Shopbop’s 25% off sale! EVERYTHING is 25% off with code INTHEFAM25 .. Had to share because like I said, it is my number one sale I wait for every year!

xo, we are off to the ZOO!

  13. Hello amber!
    I wanted to ask you what you think about brazilian keratin treatment? (The one that seals your cuticule with heat)
    Cause every time i hace it done my hair looks amazing bur after a couple of months its worst than before… It’s the treatment good for your hair? Is ir healthy?
    Thanks a lot <3

    1. Hi Amber,
      Please do share your perspective on this. I had an express one done, and the results washed away just after 7 showers!!! And i made sure to wash my hair with sulfate, paraben and phthalate free shampoo and conditioner, every three days. It’s disappointing after having paid a considerable price for it.

      1. Just so you know, it was supposed to last three months, but it barely lasted three weeks.

    2. Hi ladies!! I actually have never tried this before!! So I have no idea 🙁 It sounds awesome but from what you both mentioned, maybe it isn’t as effective as described!! Bummer! Thanks for the feedback!! xo

  14. Love that halloween spirit in NY ! So bad we don’t celebrate it in France … but I’m seriously thinking about decorating my home with pumpkins so I can get a bit of the spirit anyway !
    The pictures of A and Chauncey are sooooooo cute ! How do you manage to keep your home (and pink couch ??!!!!) clean with a dog and baby ? I have both of them and… that’s a pretty tough work ah ah ah



    1. Thanks so much!! It is so fun!! You totally should!! I love fall decor 🙂 And aww thank you!! I love them! The couch has somehow managed to stay clean so far.. but in the event that something spills, we have stain removers 😉

    1. I would love to visit Boston right now!! I bet it is gorgeous!! I can see why you miss it 🙂

    1. Thanks Angela!! We love to get out and about 🙂 Especially with this amazing weather!

  15. Aww Atticus is always so cute in all of your photos! Looks like fun, as always! And you’re always so nice replying to the comments 🙂

    Quick question for you: I’m trying to plan a trip to New York and in your opinion what are the best places to visit in New York? I’ve never been there and am really excited to see everything haha

    1. Thanks so much!! You’re too nice! He is so fun and surprisingly so good in front of the camera haha 🙂 And if you have never been, I would definitely visit the Statue of Liberty (we recently did this, and LOVED it), Central Park (you can walk around, rent bikes, rent a paddle boat, etc.), the Empire State Building, the Rockefeller Center (go to the top, it’s a stunning view), and Times Square of course (you could see a broadway play)!! Those are just a few ideas 🙂 You could even do a “hop on hop off” bus is so fun and a great way to see everything!! I have done it before! I hope this helps! Enjoy your trip!! xo

  16. Okay, embarrassingly the first thing I thought of when I read the title of this post was a Hey Arnold! episode with the Stoop Kid who wouldn’t leave his stoop. Don’t know if you ever watched that show growing up, but man, loving the flash back moment just then. Also, Fall is definitely in full swing over there! SO pretty! I don’t blame you wanting to take pictures in front of all those stoops! You look gorgeous as always!
    xo TJ

    1. hahah I just died laughing!! I totally used to watch Hey Arnold so I can totally relate!!! Hilarious!! Best flash back 🙂 And aww thank you!! You’re so sweet! xo

  17. You guys are LITERALLY the cutest! I absolutely love fall 🙂 Definitely my favorite season out of the four. The weather is just perfect for layering clothes and drinking hot coco. Fall décor is also one of my favorite things, and those stoops look super cute! I love all the pictures of Atticus and Chauncey! Its so great to see the bond between those two 🙂 – xoxo
