JESSICA ROMM PEREZ IS A LIFESTYLE EXPERT FOR MARTHA STEWART LIVING AND OUR IN-THE-KNOW FEATURETTE THIS MONTH. HERE, SHE REVEALS HER STYLE SECRETS AND FAVORITE BUYS TO READY FOR HER LATEST LITTLE ONE.
MOST MISSED FOOD/DRINK WHILE PREGNANT?
I’m sure a lot of people say this but crisp, cold white wine and oysters! Oh, and sushi too – no surprise there!
BIGGEST “TREAT YOURSELF” INDULGENCE WHILE PREGNANT?
Uber. Having the Uber app on my phone is dangerous. My office is in West Chelsea and I have been indulging in that a bit too much! I had to cut myself off.
FAVORITE BEAUTY PRODUCTS TO GET YOU THROUGH PREGNANCY?
I’m really into body oil for the belly and feet – Weleda, Santa Maria Novella, and Ren. Also Aesop Hand Balm is the best!
DID YOU FIND OUT WHAT YOU’RE HAVING?
I’m having a boy! I have a daughter, Emilia, who is three.
POLKA DOTS OR STRIPES?
STRIPES! Always and definitely for the baby boy too!
GO-TO BABY BAG (OR OVERSIZED HANDBAG!)?
I am actually on the hunt right now for something new. I am a big fan of the oversized bag – not the baby bag – but using little zip pouches to keep everything organized. I love the zip bags by Clare Vivier and Baggu.
WHAT’S IN IT?
Wipes, wipes and more wipes! Water for me, Aden + Anais swaddle blankets, Scents and Feel turkish cotton towel work as a quick lightweight blanket when you are visiting people or are great for the park. Diapers and always a change of clothes for the baby. A cloth picture book for the baby (not heavy and portable).
White, grey, pale blue and wood.
FAVORITE FAIRY TALE?
We are in full on three year old girl mode – so Sleepy Beauty, Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood – or really anything with princesses.
