pinkblush-shop-clothesI’M BACK!

Sorry about my absence, it was not intentional. I had a bit of laptop drama. Luckily the problem was easily taken care of. 

Anyways, I feel like SO much has gone on since my last post (which was one of my most read posts to date! THANK YOU SO MUCH!) Most notably, my shoot with PinkBlush! CHECK US OUT HERE! I still can’t believe that it actually happened. I guess it’s not that big of a deal, but for me, it was a little dream come true! Continue reading “A PHOTOSHOOT WITH PINKBLUSH”

Home-decor-DIY

If you read my post 20 Things About Me, then you already know that I love interior design. For me, home decor is what truly makes a house a home. One of the best compliments I receive is when someone enters my home and comments on how welcoming/homey it feels. And while everyone’s design aesthetic is different, my goal when decorating is to make my home feel warm and welcoming. That may be attributed to the fact that I only fill my home with pieces I absolutely love. Continue reading “7 TIPS FOR DECORATING YOUR HOME ON A STRICT BUDGET”

MOMMY MUST HAVES: BEACH ESSENTIALS

MOMMY MUST HAVES-

So last time on my “Mommy Must Haves” series I shared my top swimsuits for this upcoming summer (if you missed it you can find it here). Well, this time I am going to continue our summer accessories discussion by covering beach essentials. If you live in Southern California then you know that summer and beach days go together like lemons and lemonade. You really can’t have one without the other. But I understand that as a mother with two little ones, having a beach day isn’t as easy as throwing on your bikini and grabbing your towel. Nowadays this fun little activity involves some planning and even packing. So with summer quickly approaching, I figured why not share my top beach essentials and make your planning that much less of a headache. So whether your plans involve hitting the beach or just taking a trip to the nearest lake or river, these are some products you are not going to want to leave home without.

Let’s get started! Continue reading “MOMMY MUST HAVES: BEACH ESSENTIALS”

Sure, fresh flowers are always wonderful but they soon fade and cards end up getting tucked away and forgotten. So what do you get mothers on mother’s day? The answer is fairly simple, give them your time. I am sure most moms would agree that time spent with their loved ones and the memories they make is all they truly want. And what better way to commemorate that precious time than with a unique watch. Continue reading “SPENDING TIME & MAKING MEMORIES ON MOTHER’S DAY”

MOMMY MUST HAVES: SWIMSUIT EDITION

MOMMY MUST HAVES-Okay, so I may be jumping the gun, since it’s still April, but I want to talk about swimsuits. Before I had the little ones I LOVED buying bikinis. For me, finding the perfect bikini was like finding the perfect outfit. Anything from bandeaus, triangle tops, to Brazilian bottoms I wanted them all. And usually the tinier the bikini the better. Fast forward to today and my criteria for bikinis has totally changed.  Continue reading “MOMMY MUST HAVES: SWIMSUIT EDITION”

SMALL STEPS TOWARD A HEALTHIER DIET

food-habits

Growing up I had the absolutely worst diet. If it wasn’t Top Ramen, chicken, or cheese odds are I wouldn’t eat it. I practically hated everything, especially vegetables. But for some reason soon after I had Hayden, my first born, my palette changed. I started to enjoy and even crave some of the food I disliked growing up. Fast-forward to today and my eating habits have done a complete 360.  Continue reading “SMALL STEPS TOWARD A HEALTHIER DIET”
