Having an 8-month-old that is constantly growing and/or teething can take a toll on my sleep. A good nights sleep definitely helps my motivation for the day to come. I’ve been applying these habits to my life for some time now (or since Oliver started sleeping through the night), and they have really helped my sleep and my next day energy levels. 1. A Sleep Schedule This is key to a good nights sleep, making and sticking to a sleep schedule! This entails going to bed and waking up at roughly the same time every night. Your body will soon recognize a schedule and adjust naturally its internal clock. It helps if you set an alarm for each morning, giving yourself adequate sleep. Try not to sleep in or over sleep , as that will make you more tired and throw off…

Happy Easter! I hope everyone had a nice Easter Sunday. I decided to break the mold of usual pastels and/or floral, and decided to instead go for a bold maxi dress. My favorite part of this dress is the flowy sleeves! You may have noticed that I chopped off most of my hair. Since I had Oliver, my hair thinned considerably and I needed a fresh start for my hair now that it’s thickening back up. My goal is a thick, full body lob. Haha hopefully.   Have a good week!  Xoxo DRESS // NECKLACE

Easter is less than a week away, so I’ve rounded up my favorite spring dresses that are perfect for this coming Easter. Whether is a gorgeous, flowy maxi dress, or a cute, flirty bodycon, Easter is the time to show off. It is the perfect excuse to dress up and get fancy! I’ve included an array of different dresses, and each picture is linked up for your convenience. 🙂 An added bonus, is that all the dresses are under $115!! I personally went with a bold, solid colored maxi dress that will appear on the blog soon. I hope you enjoyed this short little Easter post!  Xoxo

Sleeves for days! The bell sleeve trend has be feeling girly and very elegant. Haha they make me feel a little like a princess. Now I just need a long flowy dress with bell sleeves and I will be a happy girl. I have added some of my other favorite bell sleeve tops and dresses below. This top is from Shein, and I have had several questions about this site. A lot of you have said that you’re wary about buying anything from the site because the prices are really low, and that tends to mean that the quality is sometimes cheap.  My advice for dealing with this, is to READ THE REVIEWS. There are a lot of reviews on most articles of clothing, and they will sometimes have pictures as well. Usually, unless the price is very low, I…

Spring weather is here at last! Sunshine and flowers, and beautiful blooms on the trees. Oliver is also loving the warm weather. He enjoys crawling around in the grass, trying to put handfuls of dirt and grass in his mouth. His little guilty face is too cute! That said, I am currently inside, re-watching Downton Abbey while I write this. Oh, and it’s raining. Hopefully I didn’t jinx it haha. Recently, with the (mostly) gorgeous weather, I have been obsessed with off-the-shoulder tops. Unfortunately, Oliver sees a bare shoulder as a fresh chew toy. I usually end up with drool all over my top – grooooossss. Also, how cute are these crop jeans from Cello Jeans?! Trying out new brands of jeans can be kind of daunting, but these fit so perfectly. Oliver loves the rips, especially grabbing them and…
