mini: What are a few of your favorite brands for Olivia?
Jennifer: Olivia’s closet is filled with H&M, she literally has the entire Fall and Holiday collections- they have the best clothing and it’s so affordable. But I like to mix and match and she dresses high and low. Some other favorite brands are Stella McCartney, Oeuf, Mini Rodini, Le Vie Jetsetter, Nununu, Chloe, Freshly Picked, and Minnetonka. I also buy a lot on Etsy- they have amazing stuff you can’t find from a retailer. We are also very into music, so she has a lot of rock T-shirts (David Bowie, Led Zeppelin, The Smiths etc) from the streets of Soho.

Jennifer: “Hot in Here” by Nelly. I sing it to her as we get dressed and undressed. Peppa Pig theme song also brings an immediate smile to her face.
mini: What are some of Olivia’s favorite food?

mini: Do you have any tips for parents-to-be or new parents?
Jennifer: Few tips- try to find a balance and it’s ok to say no to plans, in the beginning it’s so easy to feel like you’re not a good friend, wife, employee etc. You are pulled in so many directions but in time you will find that balance, it does get easier! Also surround yourself with a strong support system and have a lot of shows on your DVR for those sleepless nights!
