Once in a blue moon, the heavens align and the perfect outfit is born. It is even more special when that outfit is actually just once piece of clothing. For me, my perfect outfit is currently this pineapple jumper. [Read more…]
If you follow me on my social media channels, you know that I just got back from an incredible trip to NYC. I have been to New York City three times now and each time has been such a different experience! That is the great thing about New York. Things are constantly changing there, so you can have an entirely different experience each time you go. Because I went with my blogger bestie, Holly, things were much more centered around blogging events and fun things that our families wouldn’t necessarily enjoy as much as two moms who were able to escape for a few days.
We wanted to get the very most out of the time we had, so we took a red eye flight there. It was my first red eye flight, but I learned a lot! I was really glad I had brought a sweatshirt with me, because the plane was quite cold. A few things I couldn’t have survived my red eye flight without were my sweatshirt, my travel pillow, a smaller pillow (this one happens to be my Jimmy Fallon face), headphones, tunes to listen to on your phone, comfortable clothes, and a good book. I read my book until I started feeling really tired, put my pillow around my neck, plugged in my headphones, and was able to catch some zzz’s. If you are sensitive to light, I recommend bringing an eye mask. There were a few people who had their reading lights on during the flight and I ended up having to pull my sweatshirt over my eyes to cover the light.
The first time I went to NYC, I wasn’t sure what type of purse to bring. I was really worried about someone stealing my purse and taking off with everything in it, so I found myself hugging my purse a lot. The second time around, I only brought a flat wallet with the essentials in it, so I wouldn’t have to worry about a purse. The set back of this was that I was missing a lot of things that I would have liked to have had with me on the go. This time around, I brought my new favorite travel purse, my Baggallini bagg!

Welcome to my secret garden! I love this lace maxi dress so much.
This dress has quickly become a favorite of mine. I love that I can wear it with some gladiator sandals during the summer, but I feel like I will totally be able to pull it off during the winter too if I pair it with a blazer or something. [Read more…]
Kids can’t wait for summer to be here, but once it comes the only thing that seems to come out of their mouth is how bored they are! This can be so frustrating for moms! Even with friends over, kids can have a difficult time coming up with activities to do. Here are five awesome outdoor games that my husband used to play with his students when he taught 6th grade. He used these games in his P.E. class and his students loved them! These games would be great activities at a family reunion too!
Now that summer is officially upon us, kids seem to think they need to be busy all of the time! My daughter is 3 years old and even though she isn’t on a summer break from a normal school routine like a lot of kids are, she still seems to get the summer boredom. That is so hard on moms! I love to let her play outside, but sometimes it is too hot to play outside.
I like to have a few backup activities that can be done inside on the days that are too hot to go outside. One of these activities is finger painting! I feel like finger painting is something that children of many ages can enjoy. It brings a whole new level of creativity for kids when they can get their hands dirty! To stick with a summer theme, I came up with two different summer finger painting ideas that are pictures your kids can create.
I have been all about my accessories this summer. They aren’t my typical accessories though. I don’t love wearing a lot of jewelry during the heat of the summer, so I find other ways to accessorize instead!
I am so excited about a new review that I get to participate in. I will be reviewing the Tria Hair Removal Laser 4x!

The Tria Hair Removal Laser 4x is a device that is the first and only FDA-cleared hair removal laser available for at home use! It was recently re-designed and now provides better results in half of the time as previous models. It provides safe, effective, and permanent results from home.

I felt the magic of swiss herbs in Ricola® Herb & Throat drops as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. #swissherbs
I have really loved having a little garden this year. Last summer, we had to leave our garden when we sold our house. Because we are renting right now, I decided to plant my garden in pots that I can move to any house we move to. I won’t have to leave my precious plants behind! This year, we decided to try growing herbs at home too.
