Flashback Of The Week: Muhammad And Laila Ali, 1977

Boxing legend Muhammad Ali’s youngest daughter Laila followed her father’s fancy footwork

to become a championship boxer in her own right. She also gained his passion for philanthropy and family–

now with two children of her own, the retired champ devotes her time to causes like Feeding

America and lends her name to worldwide charity campaigns. But here, in 1977, she was just a

newborn cradled in her father’s powerful arms. Like father, like daughter.

Pictured here in Gstaad, Switzerland, Grace and Caroline are just a couple of Princesses on a family ski holiday. Whether they’re contemplating the next slope to conquer, or a mug of hot chocolate back at the lodge, mother and daughter somehow manage to make winter gear look stylish and cool. Perfect weekend inspiration for this never-ending New York winter!

KATE SCHELTER X BONPOINT TSHIRT

We could not have been more proud of one of our very first contributors–and one of our favorite mummies–illustrator Kate Schelter, when we heard that she collaborated with one of our favorite brands, Bonpoint.

The illustration on this long sleeve t-shirt was one of the first ever made for our website!

The t-shirt is available for pre-order on Moda Operandi and available in size 3, 4, and 6 years old

We are getting a bit nostalgic, Kate!

AURELIA DRY BODY OIL

We love Aurelia Probiotic Skincare’s Dry Body Oil as a top shelf pampering product. Specifically formulated as a light, easily absorbed hydrator, it multitasks to tighten and moisturize your dehydrated skin. And since estrogen levels drop suddenly after giving birth and can remain low for two to three months–causing a loss of salt and water in the body–a new mother’s dry skin craves proper care. Moisturizing, using a humidifier, and avoiding drying formulas with soap and alcohol can all help restore smoother, more supple skin. Aurelia’s synthesis of Neroli, Lavender, Rose, Mandarin and antioxidant-rich BioOrganic botanicals unique to Aurelia combine into a lovely fragrance, creating a relaxing, stress free experience. Blend with your moisturizer or apply while your skin is still damp to enhance the effects, and continue to practice a little self-love every day.
