Before we get into it with Ingrid, you should know I was just on her podcast talking: business, wellness, intermittent fasting, morning routines, & friendship. Be sure to listen here.
After interviewing tons of experts on the TSC podcast about intermittent fasting, I knew it was something I had to try.
My friend Ingrid, who I met on Instagram ( head over here for the full story ), encouraged me to try it for 5 days a week. At first I was totally overwhelmed, then it became super easy & almost something I looked forward to because it gave me mental clarity. If you’re interested in reading more about this, check out this post.
Ingrid is always super open with sharing recipes, skinny hacks, & diet tips. She’s just not stingy & always provides so much value on all of her channels, including her podcast.
Ingrid is back on the blog today & this time she’s talking about wet & dry muscles.
Let me fill you guys in on how we met in case you missed her last guest posts ( here & here ).
I have stalked Ingrid online for years. NO BUT LIKE, YEARS.
I found her on a friend of a friend of a cousin’s sister’s page or something when I was deep in an Instagram trance. I liked her right away.
One of my favorite things about her: she was always providing value by sharing her tips & tricks- recipes too.
THEN, one time when I was in Monaco, I SAW HER AT THE HOTEL WE WERE HAVING LUNCH AT. I whispered to Michael that “THAT was THAT girl I followed on Instagram!” Michael looked at me like I was fucking crazy. But first things first, I had to see what she was eating…
You can bet it was protein, greens, fiber & a glass of wine – La Piscine style!
I never went over to say hi, but I DM’d her & we quickly became friends. Since then, Michael & I have met up with her & Gil ( her …
So random- I found her on a friend of a friend of a cousin’s sister’s page or something when I was deep in an Instagram stalk like 4 years ago. I liked her feed immediately ( if you want to see, go DEEP into her Instagram ). She was super open with sharing recipes, skinny hacks, & diet tips. As Ingrid would say, she “wasn’t stingy” with her tips. I liked the vibe.
So I followed her on Instagram, silently watching her skinny recipes from afar for years.
HERE’S HOW CRAZY LIFE IS GUYS: I was in Monaco AND SAW HER AT THE HOTEL WE WERE HAVING LUNCH AT. I whispered to Michael that “THAT was THAT girl I followed on Instagram!” Michael looked at me like I was fucking crazy. But first things first, I had to see what she was eating…from a distance. LIKE MOVE MICHAEL- YOU’RE BLOCKING MY VIEW. Creepy? Come on, we’ve all been there. I wanted to see the whole thing. Like what was she eating to get those abs? Was she having protein? What kind?
Anyway, I wanted to see her in action- I love her philosophy …
This post is kinda random but I’ve surprisingly been getting asked on Instagram ( a lot !! ) about Zaza’s playlist.
While she was in the womb, I played a lot of French jazz & Bossa nova. Now that she’s here I wanted to keep the theme going, but decided to throw in some Disney vibes too.
When Zaza was born my friend Ingrid sent over some beautiful music. They were all French lullabies & Zaza is obsessed with them. Our night nurse had some really beautiful lullabies too that we both play for Zaza all the time. She loves it!
So those 2 things, combined with layers of some Spanish lullabies ( I hope she’ll speak Spanish one day ) & Disney classics inspired this playlist. You just can’t go wrong with The Little Mermaid.
Zaza’s absolute favorite is Pinocchio though. When You Wish Upon a Star & I’ve Got No Strings are two of her favorites. We listen to it every morning.
Even the songs that you wouldn’t expect on the Pinocchio soundtrack, the ones with no words, are really nice to play in the morning. The ones called The Clock Sequence, The Kitten Theme & …
I’ve said before that I’m not the most maternal person so I’m asking for all the tips, hacks, & tricks I can get. Jule is #momgoals all the way so I had to ask her to come on & give her take on motherhood. A little background for ya…
Jule & I were introduced by our friend Ingrid de la Mare-Kenny ( who is fabulous ). Ingrid raved about Jule & told me I had to meet her & that I would absolutely love her. When Jule was featured on Julie Lauren’s podcast Hashtag No Filter, I immediately fell in love & started watching her Instagram Stories. After watching Jule, I saw she had a real gift of connecting with her audience on a fun level. She doesn’t take herself too seriously, & she gets it. She’s smart as a whip, she’s fucking funny, & she’s totally someone I would hang out with …
