Sunscreens, swimsuits, and beachy faves.

May 26, 2017


This felt like the longest week ever. I am pretty sure it had to do with all of the end of the school year events, an urgent care visit, rainy days, and a baby who won’t sleep;) I am so happy to see the long weekend! We kicked it off with some lake time as soon as the sun came out.

I am very cautious of suncare these days, so thought it would be helpful to share some of my favorite beachy finds safe sunscreens (or “sunscreem” as my son Max calls it), and swimsuits. Read on for the down low!


10 tops to shop on Amazon prime RN.

May 23, 2017


I tend to Amazon Prime my life away these days since it saves me all kinds of time running to and from stores! I don’t get the chance to shop much either unless it’s online, so I am digging the amazon fashion section and their free two day shipping! My new wonderful project manager Monica and I rounded up some of the best finds you gotta take advantage of in both high and low price points!

Other random things in my Amazon shopping cart? Paper towels, diaper wipes, and my favorite laundry detergent. See I wasn’t kidding. My life in an online shopping cart form. Hope these guides are helpful for you ladies also without time for dressing rooms!

Time has been a blur of life events, milestones, and mile markers lately. All I can do is hold on tight and hope I get my days straight! I haven’t even had time to process most of it, so I am so relieved to see summer in sight to welcome a slower pace. The kids had their last day of school today so per usual, I feel heavy hearted the year is coming to an end, and also thankful to have more time with them in the coming months….

Blue and White Striped Favorites

May 19, 2017

Striped tee – Madewell // Linen wide leg pants (similar) // Tie up sandal – (Similar) // Straw tote – Maewoven

It’s all about easy breezy style for me right now, so I’ve been living in wide leg linen pants, tees, and lace up flats. We got hit with a heat wave here in Atlanta, and wouldn’t you know our AC is down for the count! So I might just go by a giant inflatable pool for us to park it in for the weekend along with an endless supply of watermelon and popsicles. Who wants to come over? 😉

I’ve been really digging everything blue and white striped, and since it’s a timeless style I have no problem with having it heavily favored in my closet. Here is a round up of some of my favorite blue and white striped items I found at all price points. You just have to click on the image and it will give you a closer look!


Morning power hour.

May 15, 2017

I was a born morning person, but you know how it goes with babies who still wake in the night. Morning now comes with sticky eyelids and sore arms and a bright blue eyed little girl ready to play at 6:30 am. In order to get a good start to the day I really cling to morning routine that cures the mind fuzz.


Motherhood through 3 generations.

May 15, 2017

It is true that to raise strong women of our own, we must have witnessed what strength looks like.  This post is a little bit about the impact of the women before me. How my grandmothers and my own mother paved the path with grace for many of us trying to walk behind them…

A Night In

May 11, 2017


I am so excited to be able to be a part of this series that Julia and Kim put together! Tonight we are showing you our favorite room to cozy up and lounge in at night after the kids are in bed. It’s a place we can unwind and (tightly grasp onto) a little quiet. You will have to check out the rooms of the other bloggers involved to see some of the cozy spaces for ‘A Night In’! Here is a little more about our space…
