This post is sponsored by Tomorrow Sleep, but the content and opinions expressed are my own. Having a good mattress is EVERYTHING!

Sprinkled with Love

Last weekend my Mom and sister Gabby threw me the most gorgeous sprinkle to celebrate my baby boy. I was a little worried since I am so far along, but with a little help from a spary tan, blow out, and carefully picked dress, I was feeling like the bell of the ball. This time… Read more »

My pajama and loungewear collection over the years has contained oversized sweatpants and shirts collected over the years from different events.

Dermatologist’s Choice Skincare

Skincare has always been important to me ever since I was little. When I was about 10 years old I remember my mom taking me to the local mall to the beauty counter to purchase my first skincare regimen, and I was hooked ever since. I’ve done my research over the years to try to… Read more »

Medspa at Home

Let’s face it, time spent on myself is limited these days. With a three year old always on the go, a home remodel and being almost 33 weeks pregnant, I am spending less time on me lately. I know that giving up this precious time to primp and meet my basic needs is important but… Read more »

Saving for the future with Kidfund

My husband is constantly reminding me how we need to cut back on all of the junk in our house and minimize our belongings. I don’t blame him, we have a lot of stuff! As soon as I had my baby shower for my daughter, things got very real. Tons of gifts began arriving in… Read more »

Healthy egg muffins featuring NatureSweet Eclipses

Things get super crazy around here, especially in the mornings. I run off to bootcamp to get in my workout, then I race home to get breakfast on the table for the family.

    Rules Are Meant to Be Broken 

    Who says you can’t wear white after Labor Day?! I believe that’s an old fashion myth to get all consumers to start the fall fashion hoarding. Here in Arizona it usually doesn’t start to cool down until the end of October, making it hard to start buying for fall so early in the year. This… Read more »

    Road Trip Round Up: my 3 favorite products for car travel

       I was not sure what to expect while taking a long road trip from Arizona to California for our annual family vacation with my side of the family. Keeping Amelia entertained even while home is quite the task let alone in her car seat for over 6 hours!  Thanks to 3 of my favorite… Read more »

    The comeback kid: the denim skirt

        I remember back in high school when I thought I was so cool wearing my cut off denim skirt. It was all the rage and every girl had one in all types of washes. They all wore them with flip flops or even Uggs… Um gross. We even all envied Britney Spears when she… Read more »

    Let’s face it, when it comes to baby products there is no limit to how many one family can collect. Each age range requires a new set of gadgets which can become very costly so it’s important to pick and choose what exactly to buy, but how do you know which ones you actually need… Read more »
