Kid Style: DIY Slashed Leggings + Lauryn Hill

OK. I admit I’m having a whole lot of fun with Juliza’s newfound fashionista persona. Since she is really shy around other people (read: She doesn’t like very many people at all), I love seeing her light up in front of the camera.

DIY Face Painting for Halloween: Baby Cheetah

Now that I have kids, I really get into Halloween every year. That usually manifests itself as homemade costumes for them, like this year’s DIY Doc McStuffins for baby Juliza. But I understand that many people don’t have either the time or the inclination to make an elaborate costume at home. Or — if you’re… Continue reading DIY Face Painting for Halloween: Baby Cheetah
