I turned 40 years old last July and my OB/GYN had scheduled my first mammogram for that summer. I didn't go. A part of me was pretty resistant to the procedure for a number of reasons. I knew it would be unpleasant, I was afraid of what could happen, I wanted to remain blissfully naïve, and also I simply didn't prioritize it in my planner.
After feeling some sensitivity in my breasts, I felt my body telling me it was time. So I scheduled my appointment and finally got it done. I learned a few things and want to share with you what you might expect, if you're like me and unsure if you're ready to take that step
Valentine's Day is around the corner and my kids are so excited for it! But trying to be conscious of our sugar intake, as well as what we offer our friends, I wanted to find treats this year that didn't include candy.
I'm sharing what we chose to do for class treats, as well as what I'm gifting my boys for Valentine's Day this year.
So you're thinking of doing a Boudoir Shoot. But you are nervous and don't know if you're up for it. I TOTALLY understand, and I'm here to first of all tell you, you TOTALLY can rock this out. Also, I want to share my best tips with you! As a 40 year old mom of 2, I just shot with Exotic Hawaii Shoots this past week, and I'm breaking down how I got ready for the day and what you can do to make sure you have a great experience!
I'll be honest. I have no idea what I'm doing for New Year's Eve this year. Not that I've had plans for the last 2 either. 2021 has been kinda a bust for me. So whether you're celebrating a great year, or cheers-ing to the fact that this one is over, I think December 31st is still worth looking cute for. (I mean every day is, but let's kick it up a notch, k)
With zero plans on the horizon, I may end up at home or at a friends house, which means...while I want to be festive and look fab, I still want to be able to toss a throw blanket over my body and cuddle on the couch if the occasion presents itself.
I'm calling these outfits, take me or leave me but I'm FABULOUS either way dahling!
A friend texted me asking for gift ideas for young boys. As a boy mom to a 5 and 7 year old, I thought I should know! But it did make me ponder...and decide, what great idea for a blog post. Intentional, heartfelt gifts always leave a great impression. I'm sharing 5 ideas that would be well loved and enjoyed by boys 5-10 years old. Aaaaand 5 worst ideas.
You've got girls on your gifting list, mama! Moms, Grandmas, Work besties, Girlfriends, Bosses, Long distance BFFs, in laws and more!! Get inspired to give the gift of Clean Beauty & Wellness this season with these to "live" for gift set ideas.
I've tried to keep them under $50 or as close to, but each of these sets offer something that is great for your girlies' health, but we made it *cute* too!
It. Was. Bad.
I needed to purge my house of a lot of clutter, so I thought about having a Garage Sale. In planning for it, I wanted to include my kids in the process and help them have their own money-making experience; so I thought they could run a Lemonade Stand to go along with our sale.
I'm excited to offer them little entrepreneurship opportunities so that they grow up with a healthy money mindset, and hopefully feel empowered with the process. In this post I'm sharing how we made our Lemonade Stand, how the boys were included, and what they were able to learn!
As a mom of 2 boys and dog, my house gets dirty QUICK! I don't know about you but having a clean and tidy house makes me sooooo happy! On the other hand having cleaning tools and appliances that don't cut it, make up upset. It becomes a waste of time and money. So I'm sharing with you 4 house cleaning appliances that have been a great investment for our home.
Who would have ever thought colors could be so life changing?! If you would have told me a color consult would have been a game changer in my life, I probably would have laughed at you. Colors seem so....elementary right? And as far as clothes go, we wear what we like right?
I have to share this with you! My color consult with Lindsey of Created Colorful was such a fascinating experience and I am SO glad I did it! I'm sharing the deets on what the process was like, and why I'm kinda a new woman now!
