KIDS SUMMER LEMONADE STAND
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!
LASHIFY AT HOME LASH SYSTEM
I get so many questions and comments about my lashes on Instagram, I thought I'd lay it all out here for you guys to see what I use and how I do it. So most of you know that I'm a huge fan of Lashify's at home lash system. The thousands of women who are also obsessed with all have their own method of application that may be a little different. I find my method to be quick and simple. Just how I like my beauty routine!
If you're looking for an alternative to strip lashes and lash extensions, I highly recommend!
I hired Demery Mezin in 2020 to help re-design several spaces in my home. It was an amazing experience and Demery was kind enough to let me interview her. I'm sharing about who she is, and how we did an incredible interior design job completely virtually!

I've got 5 beautiful, and well rated dresses for you, all under $50!!
I've seen it everywhere. It's a go to for many make up junkies to makeup up minimalists. Coty Air Spun Face Powder is a popular setting powder that is way affordable and loved by many. But I'm sharing today why you need to ditch the cute burnt orange tub of dust, like yesterday.
I spend a good amount of time in my home office; my office also serves as my workout space. As I worked with Designs by Demery during the last few months of 2020, I wanted to create a space that felt bright, airy, open, and organized. I’m sharing ways I repurposed furniture I already had; and added a few new items to make my space exactly what I wanted. If you’re looking for a little inspo for your own home office, I hope you get a few ideas here!
EASY BEDTIME ROUTINE FOR KIDS
As a mom of soon to be 5 and 7 year old energetic boys, I had to find a bedtime routine that was fuss free and not incredibly long. I mean, mama wants a few quiet moments before she sleeps too. I’m sharing what works for us in today’s post.
I may be a boymom but I have grown up as an aunty since I was 5 years old. Honest. And one of my closest and dearest nieces is becoming a teenager next week. As a mama on a mission to use clean products on my family, I wanted to discover what a teenage girl might want as she steps into the world of cosmetics.
I’m putting together a list of Clean Beauty for Teen/Tween Girls and this will be a 4 part series. I’ll also publish lists for clean skincare, bath/body, and hair care so be sure you’re getting my emails, so you don’t miss them! Sign up here.
My 12 year old niece isn’t a big makeup fan yet, but some of her friends are. I am not one to encourage heavy makeup at a young age, but I do recall as an early teen, wanting to experiment with makeup and follow some trends of the time. My list will consist of some basic products a makeup beginner could start with, all made with safer ingredients and EWG - verified. Let’s get into it!
