A special gift for Mother’s day

I wrote about The Honest Company a little while ago to tell you how much I love their diapers here. I am also a big fan of their healing balm since Sophie is constantly drooling and has a rash on her chin and neck as a result. With Mother’s day just around the corner, The Honest Company is recognizing all the […]

Kissing your little one on the lips; yes or no?  I couldn’t manage to get a photo with the other littles, but I caught this one since she can’t walk yet! (Sorry it’s so blurry) This is something that I never thought about until recently. I love giving kisses to my littles on the lips. […]

If you follow me on Instagram, you probably know that I have recently become a stella & dot stylist. This all sort of happened out of the blue. I went to a trunk show at a friend’s place before Christmas, more to get out of the house than anything since Sophie was only 2 weeks old at the time. […]
