Where Jessica Nowitzki Goes to Clear Her Mind and Get Away

books, shops and vacation spots

Check out our Mom Next Door Jessica Nowitzki’s favorite things for self-care, to-go food and more.


SelfCare Recipe  

“Solitude. Being at home by myself. That’s my main thing. I can decompress, get my thoughts back in order, and then I can go out and tackle the world. I just want to have my moment to myself. I do that, and I play tennis a couple of times a week.” 

Beauty Treatment 

“I really love the Josh Rosebrook Vital Balm Cream facial moisturizer.

 “For carb loading, we love Zio Cecio. Francesco Farris is the owner, he used to own Arcodoro  Pomodoro.”

 Shopping Local 

“There are a lot of great local boutiques here in Dallas. You’ve got V.O.D. down in Victory Plaza. You’ve got Grange Hall for beautiful jewelry and one-of-a-kind items. You’ve got Cabana. I mean there are so many places. I recently became an aunt, and with the kids home, I’ve been stocking up on fun eco toys and games from The Tot.”

Quarantine Cooking Faves 

“I like to cook Indian food. I like lentils. I like spicy food. I want the house to smell like we’re in India, like we’re in a different place. We try to do a little bit of everything, but I do like the ethnic foods a lot—stirfry and curries.” 

Favorite Vacation Spot 

“I’m biasedI would say Sweden or Kenya. I say Sweden because it’s so laidback and relaxed. We go fishing. We swim in lakes. We go on four-wheelers. It’s a nice, grounded place. In Kenya, it’s all the wildlife and all the chaos of traffic, and people everywhere. That’s the norm over there, obviously, but it’s so different for my children. Their senses are just exploding when they go to Kenya. I love it because I see that they’re soaking everything up and they’re learning so much every day.”
