b e a u t y || this post is a personal one for me. since i came into the world, my weight has always been an issue. i’m not only talking about being severely bullied for two decades for my body type, but also struggling with weight & food itself. the last time i was at the weight i should be for my height, i was ten years old. since then, i’ve battled eating disorders that nearly ruined my life. it wasn’t until i got pregnant that i took a hard look at myself, constantly asking what mother i wanted to be for ezra. one thing that repeated again & again in my mind was i needed to live as long as i possibly could for my son. so although, over the last seventeen months, i’ve attempted numerous lifestyle changes, only one thing has stuck out in my mind — gastric bypass surgery. no, it won’t “fix” everything. no, it won’t “cure” me of the negative thoughts i’ve had about myself since long before i can remember (mostly due to the constant criticisms of others). it will, however, be a tool that i know can help me, as it has helped thousands of others overcome their own battles with weight & medical conditions related to obesity. this isn’t me suggesting to anyone who is plus size that they should take this route or that people aren’t beautiful as they are or if they aren’t what society deems “appropriate” then they aren’t worthy. this is my personal story, my own feelings toward my body & how i want to honor my relationship with myself. this being said, i’d appreciate only positivity as my choice is unshakable. reading #eatbeautiful by @wendyrowe has changed my perspective a bit about food & realized what we put into our bodies reflects on our skin & hair & nails. i cannot wait to begin this new journey, & i’m taking small steps to get there now! 📷: @brittcosinger • • • #pursuepretty #livebeautifully #darlingmovement #darlingdaily #flashesofdelight #femfeed #welltravelled #thehappynow #thatsdarling #weightlossjourney #effyourneautystandards #effyourhealthstandards #coffeetablestyling #howyouhome #mommyblogger #plussizemom #beautygram #treatyoself #pamperyourself #risingtidesociety #newyork #newyorkstyle #gastricsleeve #womensstyle #womensbeauty #stopbullying

h o m e || today is two things — comfortingly gross. we’re all sick in the cohen-schlesinger household. so while we’re inhaling medicine & bowls of ramen, coughing & sneezing, moping & groaning, at least we’re suffering together. misery loves company, no? i’m currently getting cozy under this dusty rose blanket from @target & reading @whitespacemag’s fall issue. now if you’ll excuse me, i need some serious tissue action. 📷: @brittcosinger • • • #pursuepretty #livebeautifully #darlingmovement #darlingdaily #flashesofdelight #meethemoment #femfeed #artofvisuals #welltravelled #neverstopexploring #keepitcasual #thehappynow #howyouglow #stayandwander #radstory #designlife #thevisualcollective #howihome #mommyblogger #mamablogger #giftsforher #travelblogger #upstatenewyork #mystyle #styledby #howyouhome #ohsopretty #thatsdarling #lovelydetails #gettingcozy

s t y l e || between prepping to launch a small business, renovating my rental, making plans to open an etsy shop & taking care of my toddler full-time, if i let myself, i could really get inside my own head (with the amount of things i haven’t gotten done yet). so instead of freaking out when things don’t happen according to plan (because man plans & g-d laughs), i try not to overwhelm myself with everyday tasks & give myself enough time to accomplish bigger ones. although getting things done is important, remembering to take care of my well-being is the most important thing of all. 📷: @brittcosinger • • • #pursuepretty #livebeautifully #darlingmovement #darlingdaily #flashesofdelight #meethemoment #femfeed #artofvisuals #welltravelled #neverstopexploring #keepitcasual #thehappynow #howyouglow #stayandwander #radstory #designlife #thevisualcollective #mommyandme #mommyblogger #mamablogger #giftsforher #travelblogger #upstatenewyork #newyorkstyle #newyork #fashionblogger #ohwowyes #loveyourself #howyouhome #officegoals

b e a u t y || as women, we deal with so much, especially along the lines of hormonal changes. when my hormones are flip-flopping all around, my skin tends to show it. so tonight, you can find me eating some @halotopcreamery, binge-watching @nbcthisisus via @hulu & applying this pink clay mask from @herbivorebotanicals to my face. let the self-pampering begin! 📷: @brittcosinger • • • #pursuepretty #livebeautifully #darlingmovement #darlingdaily #flashesofdelight #meethemoment #femfeed #artofvisuals #welltravelled #neverstopexploring #keepitcasual #thehappynow #howyouglow #stayandwander #radstory #designlife #thevisualcollective #mommyandme #mommyblogger #mamablogger #girlythings #giftsforher #thatsdarling #travelblogger #upstatenewyork #allnatural #crueltyfree #ohsopretty #timeofthemonth #thatsdarling

t r a v e l || life in manhattan, new york is a fast-paced, overly noisy, somewhat smelly, utterly beautiful, exciting adventure. one day, moving there will happen for me. it’s been a dream of mine since i was a little girl! if you could move anywhere in the world, where would it be? 📷: @brittcosinger • • • #pursuepretty #livebeautifully #darlingmovement #darlingdaily #flashesofdelight #meethemoment #femfeed #artofvisuals #welltravelled #neverstopexploring #keepitcasual #thehappynow #howyouglow #stayandwander #radstory #typography #designlife #thevisualcollective #thatsdarling #taxicab #vintagevibes #nyc #newyorkcity #sohonyc #soho #timessquarenyc #portauthority #centralpark #centralparkwest #nytraffic

s t y l e || white letterpress on white marble has my heart. so much beauty in something incredibly simple. in fact, i’m drawing inspiration from this for my office reno. expect to see a room that’s equal parts chic & functional. 📷: @brittcosinger • • • #pursuepretty #livebeautifully #darlingmovement #darlingdaily #flashesofdelight #styleblogger #meethemoment #femfeed #artofvisuals #welltravelled #neverstopexploring #keepitcasual #thehappynow #howyouglow #stayandwander #radstory #paperart #stationerylover #beautyblogger #fashionblogger #travelblogger #howyouhome #thevisualcollective #thatsdarling #goodasgold #stylemepretty #styledby #thisismystyle #mommyblogger #functionalityandstyle

b e a u t y || okay, first — this pink clay exfoliating floral mask by @herbivorebotanicals literally saved my face during my trip to new york city. second — i was surprised to find that so many people i connect with daily have never been to the big apple. this needs to change! #nyc is where it’s at. third — after a very relaxing mini getaway (with @joes613 for our third anniversary), i feel recharged & ready to tackle all things @cosingerinabox. fourth — remember when i complained about all the crappy chanukah-themed stuff hanging around? well, it’s officially happening; i’ve started compiling ideas for a line of co-singer products for my favorite holiday! say goodbye to the overdone blue & silver, & welcome a change of pace with my offbeat, elegant & monochromatic designs. coming november 2018. fifth —so many of my small business owner friends suggested i open an #etsyshop, so this year, expect me to do just that! not going to lie. i’m making this year my b*% @! #tietheknotwithcosinger 📷: @brittcosinger • • • # #pursuepretty #livebeautifully #darlingmovement #darlingdaily #flashesofdelight #styleblogger #meethemoment #femfeed #artofvisuals #welltravelled #neverstopexploring #keepitcasual #thehappynow #howyouglow #stayandwander #radstory #blushpink #dustyrose #millenialpink #thevisualcollective #bloom #thatsdarling #smilestyle #goodasgold #stylemepretty #anthrobeauty #myanthro

t r a v e l || @larkandives has the most beautiful selection of collectible (push) pins, ranging from fashion to celebratory to travel. during my trip to new york city, these travel-inspired cameras, luggage & airplanes were a gorgeous addition to my oversized scarf & duffel. i’m in straight up love; the streets of new york seemed smitten with them as well! if you adore them as much as i do, you’ll be happy to know these bad boys will be featured inside my @cosingerinabox engagement & bridal curated gifts boxes. #tietheknotwithcosinger 📷: @brittcosinger • • • #brittcohenschlesinger #cosingerinabox #whiteonwhite #stylemepretty #jewish #orthodoxjew #mamaboss #bossbabe #girlbosses #femaleentrepreneur #femaleempowerment #beautyblogger #styleblogger #fashionblogger #travelblogger prettylittlethings #newyorkbride #styledby #whatimholding #streetsofnewyork #monochrome #goingonatrip #boymomlife #marriedlife #ohsopretty #darlingescape #girlythings #stationerylover #newyorkstyle

s t y l e || i am way too pumped for tomorrow! ezra turns seventeen-months-old & @joes613 & i will be making our way to the other side of the big apple. since i can’t sleep, (as usual; whenever i have something fun or important or stressful coming up, the night before i rarely get sleep! surprisingly though, the night before my wedding i slept like a baby!) i’ll be sweeping & dusting & organizing what i can around my house. there’s nothing like coming home to a clean environment after being gone for several days. 📷: @brittcosinger • • • #pursuepretty #livebeautifully #darlingmovement #darlingdaily #flashesofdelight #styleblogger #travelblogger #meethemoment #femfeed #smilestyle #artofvisuals #welltravelled #neverstopexploring #keepitcasual #thehappynow #mamaboss #bossbabe #jewish #orthodoxjew #howyouglow #stayandwander #radstory #myunicornlife #folkgood #thevisualcollective #bloom #passionpassport #thatsdarling #smilestyle #beautyblogger

b e a u t y || it feels like a french macaron kind of day. packing this lip balm from @anthropologie in my bag for my anniversary mini getaway to new york city. i know this petite gem will help with a potential chapped lip situation, because dealing with any sort of discomfort on this trip cannot happen if i have anything to do with it. do you have a product your smitten with for on-the-go application? i’d love to know (as i’m always open to trying new things)! oh, yeah! & if any of you guys know where i can get kosher french macarons while i’m in the city, please don’t hesitate to let me know! 📷: @brittcosinger • • • #blackandwhite #kosherfood #kosherfoodie #whiteonwhite #dustyrose #millenialpink #blushpink #popofcolor #lemacaron #frenchlanguage #newyorkcity #sohonyc #typography #designlife #travelblogger #styleblogger #styleinspo #fashionblogger #beautyblogger #beautygram #frenchiesofinstagram #miniatures #parisianstyle #prettylittlethings #lifeofaboymom #productstyling #productsthatwork #girlythings #manhattanny #brooklynnewyork

For a long time, I looked for a printable template specifically for budgeting for a frum family. And I couldn’t find one. At all. So I made one! Click the link in bio to be taken to the download link for the FREE printable! It comes in both a blank template and a completed one so you can choose which works for you!
