WHERE I TRAVELED THIS SUMMER:

I went to my favorite hotel, Castello di Reschio in Umbria. First I was there alone with Brad. Then my kids came and our family friends, the Dees, who we always travel with. We had this fantastic week in the Italian countryside.

Then we went to Barcelona because it’s Moses’s favorite city and my best friend Julia was turning 50. We went to the contemporary art museum MACBA and saw the work of Teresa Lanceta—she does these amazing tapestries. We saw the Gaudí apartments. And we went to Sagrada Família—I go every time I’m in Barcelona; I can never get enough of it. 

AND WHERE I ATE IN BARCELONA:

We had one of our best meals on the rooftop of a hotel called Casa Bonay, which has a very chic, kind of hipster vibe. The food was insane.

We also ate at Bar Cañete, which I go to every time, and Cal Pep. I found a place called Parking Pita. It’s so cool—there’s this giant wood-fired oven, and one half is pizza and one half is pita bread. It was perfect for lunch. 

THE LAST GEN Z THING I LEARNED FROM APPLE AND MOSES:

They’re always saying these weird words and abbreviations. Like the other day, I asked them a question and they responded, “A hundo P.” And I was like, pardon me? 

THE LAST HEALER I WORKED WITH:

Carla Schwiderski. She’s one of the purest souls I’ve ever met. And I know it sounds crazy, but she’s really good at getting entities off your body. Ha. I can sometimes accumulate energies.

HOW I’M PROGRESSING (OR NOT) IN THE COLD PLUNGE:

I'm not doing that well, but I’m getting better. I’m up to one minute now. Brad stays in for six minutes and says it’s absolutely life-changing.

A FEW OF MY HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE SEPTEMBER G. LABEL COLLECTION:

Two sets—one leather (top and skirt), one checked suit (jacket and shorts).

FIRMS TO LOOK AT FOR A GOOD BUSINESS COACH:

3 PEAKS Leadership, Reboot, and RHR International. 

THE MOST LIBRA THING ABOUT ME:

That I cannot decide what restaurant to go to. And that I am obsessed with beauty.

WHAT’S NEW AND NOTEWORTHY IN THE GOOP SHOP:

Bea Bongiasca’s colorful stones. Cece Jewellery for pendants, signet rings, and fun pieces to layer on. The Knotty Ones for knitwear.

I’m dying to get the TheraFace PRO. Makeup artist Georgie Eisdell used it on me, and I was obsessed. Also, the team just added this lash and brow serum from the legendary Augustinus Bader to our clean beauty shop.

INSTAGRAM ACCOUNTS I FOLLOWED MOST RECENTLY:

@mayafellerrd—we’re publishing her cookbook Eating from Our Roots in January, and it’s so great. @nomnompaleo and @daniellewalker—you may know that I follow a lot of people for paleo recipes. @lindseygoddardinteriors and an account called @theflairindex, which I really like.

SKIN-CARE PRODUCTS I’M MOST LIKELY TO BE OVERHEARD RECOMMENDING TO A FRIEND:

I use the GOOPGLOW Dark Spot Exfoliating Sleep Milk every night. I especially like to put on our new body oil if I’ll be showing skin. It will be a good red-carpet secret—it gives you this beautiful sheen. And this month, our team put together The Great Skin at Every Age Kit—which has my four essentials for aging skin, including Sleep Milk.

A PRACTICE I WANT TO START:

I want to get better with gratitude journaling or keeping a gratitude practice at the end of the day. I feel like that would really help me. 

IPHONE LOCK SCREEN:

Yes, I’ve switched it a few times since the last this & that note I sent in April. It’s now Apple, since Madame left me for college.

DID I HAVE A BIRTHDAY PARTY:

Yes, an early celebration. My very dear friend Amy Griffin twisted my arm and threw me a party the night before I left the East Coast.

ON DRINKING LESS ALCOHOL:

I went on a little bit of an investigative health journey with my doctors and uncovered some underlying health issues, like mold. I needed to get serious about my gut health. And I completely stopped drinking for a while. That was hard because it was getting out of the habit of having a drink or a glass of wine every night with dinner—which was about the ritual and the delineation between day and night. I started replacing that with mocktails, and I got into Seedlip. Or just having a nice cup of tea or bone broth at the end of the day—trying to make a different ritual out of it.

Now I drink once in a while. If I feel like it, I will. But it’s interesting, once you really reduce alcohol, you just start to feel…and look so much better. But I always make exceptions. When I went to Italy and Spain, I drank wine and I was in heaven. I try not to be restrictive or hold myself to some sort of perfectionist idea of what a wellness practice is. And honestly, I feel so well when I’m in Italy having the best bowl of pasta sauce and a giant glass of Montefalco red wine.

It’s personal and about understanding: What is your body telling you it needs right now? 

HOW I’M FINDING INSPIRATION THESE DAYS:

Going into shops in person, which I guess we got out of the routine of doing. But it’s inspiring to go into multibrand stores that have an interesting point of view and see what other people are curating. Like Tiina in Amagansett. The John Derian store in New York. And even going into the goop store on Bond Street while I was in the city. 

OTHER THINGS I’M INTO RIGHT NOW:

I’m very into Lagree Fitness—I added that to my Tracy Anderson routine because my doctor wants me to do more resistance work for my bones.

The second season of Only Murders in the Building. It’s just so delightful. I’m late to the party, but I’m now following The Huberman Lab Podcast. And All-In, which is a brilliant business podcast. I am kind of obsessed with the personalities.

I love the new Tiffany Lock bracelet—it makes such a special gift. (It’s paired here with one of my all-time favorite G. Label rings—there’s a bit of an unintentional jewelry theme going on this month.)

WHAT I’M WATCHING NEXT:

I want to watch The Bear. And see Steven Spielberg’s new movie The Fabelmans when it comes out in November. I still haven’t seen the new Top Gun, which I’m very excited about. 


P.S. Next week, psychological astrologer Jennifer Freed’s brilliant new book, A Map to Your Soul, comes out. And I get to be in conversation with her live on October 11—we hope you can join us.
