#MeToo

November 30, 2017

I’ve gone back and forth about publishing this since the original #MeToo movement started. Truthfully, there are about a million other holiday-themed posts I should be posting right now. But this is just too important to put off for any longer. A part of me hasn’t wanted to share this story because, well, it’s hard […]

The ONE Stocking Stuffer You NEED This Year. | PLUS A GIVEAWAY

November 22, 2017

As a busy mom I often find myself doing my self-care routine on-the-go. I mean that quite literally. I’ve been known to keep my makeup bag in my purse so that I can do my makeup in the car, usually in the parking lot before going into work. I know, I know… Lame, right? I […]

Real Talk: I despise the stomach bug.

November 7, 2017

Real Talk: Every single time I have a good grasp on life, a plan of action, and a mission, something goes terribly, terribly, and unexpectedly, wrong. I know that this phenomenon is not something that I, alone, suffer from. I mean, I know it’s just life. But, damn!, the stomach bug has the worst way […]

Fall 2017 Favorites!

October 20, 2017

Fall is by far my most favorite time of year — the leaves are changing colors, the temperature is dropping, and the air is crisp. It’s perfection. One of my favorite things about Fall (besides Pumpkin Spice Lattés) is dressing and accessorizing for the season! But there is SO much more to Fall than clothes […]

Happy Birthday Baby Ari //

October 16, 2017

It’s hard to believe that this day has arrived — my first baby, Ari, is no longer a baby in any sense of the term. Today he turns 5. I’m so sad and so happy. He’s turning into such a wonderful little boy. But it’s certainly bittersweet to say goodbye to the baby years of […]

Weekly Mantra //

October 11, 2017

This week has gotten off to a weird start. Sleepless nights (for everyone, not just Remy), unexpected late work nights, and eating cereal for dinner two nights in a row… it just… happens. I keep thinking “This week. THIS is the week that I’m going to get my act together and everything will go right.” […]
