Mother’s Day Gift Ideas with Style & Meaning

Mother's Day is one of those special holidays when you want to give your mom the world. After all, she brought you into it (and has probably reminded you a few times that she could also "take you out of it!"). Flowers and candy are great, but if you're like me, you probably want to give a gift with a [...]

Wild Oats Means More Organic Food at Walmart

Since the moment I became a Walmart Mom in October of 2008, I have been asking for more organic food options in their stores, mostly because I know that greener products at Walmart tend to be more affordable than everywhere else. So every time a new option is added, I celebrate it. This time, that option is Wild Oats. The [...]

My Spring Fashion Must-Haves

I can't lie: When the seasons change, I have the overwhelming desire to refresh my wardrobe. This year, that's even more true because admittedly, a lot of my pre-pregnancy wardrobe either doesn't fit at all, or just doesn't fit right. So my options are somewhat limited these days. Here are some things I'm really coveting this spring: 1. Midi skirts [...]

Colgate Makes Teeth Whitening Super Easy

I admit it: I still use traditional toothpaste. I switched to a natural brand a few years back, but I was not a fan of the taste at all. So we switched back, and Colgate is still our go-to brand. Their teeth whitening products are among those things I'd always wanted to try, but never had a chance. So when [...]

Beech Nut’s Baby Food is as Simple as it Gets

There are a lot of things I planned to do with baby Juliza. Breastfeeding, for one. That plan has worked out thus far. But I also planned to use reusable diapers. That one hasn't worked out so well. Another plan I have for when she starts eating food is to make my own baby food. She just turned 3 months [...]

The World’s Easiest Easter Egg Project

As much as I love Easter and crafting, I've never really gotten into decorating eggs. Honestly, it's just a lot of work. There was that one time a few years back when we dyed our eggs naturally, using food. Yes, food. Think beets, cabbage, onions, etc. That was fun, but it took forever! There was a lot of boiling and [...]

Outfit: Conscious Love + Date Night

On Saturday, my husband and I went on our first real date since the baby was born. It was a much-needed break. Even though I wasn't sure I'd be able to handle a late night and I was tired before we even left the house, I'm really glad we went. We took the photos above when we were headed back [...]

Baby Juliza: Month 3

I've been taking monthly photos of little Miss Juliza, and she's 3 months old today! I realized I hadn't been sharing these photos on the blog, though I did share them in black and white on my breastfeeding story. Anyway, I'll be sharing them here from now on. Here's my three month old jellybean: Her expression is just priceless! My [...]

Stylish Collars & A New Pull Harness for Dogs

My mom's dog, Candi, is a 12-year-old beagle. She's slowed down as the years have come and gone, but there are still moments when she wants to act like a puppy. Specifically, when she goes on walks. Candi is a bundle of energy then, and she is famous for pulling on the leash. So much so that my mom hasn't [...]
