Who says that you can’t match with your son?! I am loving our custom Mommy & Me shirts from Cheerily Co, and they are so incredibly soft. Cheerily Co has so many cute slogans! There is a cute “hug life” tee that I have my eye on for Oliver, because he gives THE BEST hugs!! I have really been loving comfy, cute tees that can be paired with anything. I have been pairing my shirt with either striped pants or a colorful skirt. Do I have the ultimate instagram mom status now that I have matching shirts with my kid?? Haha! I love that Olivers shirt says “lion cub”, because he is like my crazy, wild lion cub, and I am his overprotective (probably crazy as well) lioness mama! Cheerily Co has custom kids shirts and onesies that are perfect for announcing…

What does it mean to be a mom? It means getting to the grocery store, only to realize your child needs a diaper change and maybe some shoes It means waking up in the middle of the night thinking you’ve heard your child crying, only to then lie awake making sure it wasn’t them It means sacrificing your body, to grow and nourish your baby and then become a jungle gym later on It means getting judgmental stares and comments from total strangers (and people you know) It means not being able to fall asleep at night until you’ve made sure your child is okay, no matter their age It means constantly having stains or dirt on your clothes It means watching the same show or movie over and over again (Boss Baby…30+ times I think) It means loving when…

As a mom, especially a new mom, it feels like other live to judge you and how you raise your child. They will give you their unwanted advice or critique, pointing out what you are doing ‘wrong’, and make you feel as though you are failing at every aspect of motherhood. Whether you know them or not, everyone seems to have something to say. You can even see the judgment in peoples eyes when you say things like “we co-sleep”, or “they only sleep on their stomach”, and horror of all horrors if you say “breastfeeding didn’t work for us”. You may come home from a simple grocery trip, feeling utterly defeated, and questioning if you are a good mother or not. You know your baby better than anyone else, and know what works for both of you. Everyones baby…

When I first started blogging, I took any chance I could to collaborate with a company or brand, even if it wasn’t my style or the image I was trying to build. What I ended up with is a bunch of clothing and products that I never wore, and blog posts that were so fake that I didn’t even believe what I was writing. After a lot of bad views on my posts, and my own boredom with my blog, I realized I needed to be strict with who I collaborated with. I also needed to make sure I only wrote about things that I was passionate and cared about. How I choose who to collaborate with: The first thing I do is see what kind of products they have, if I don’t already know about company. If it is…

Happy weekend! I’ve been meaning to write this kind of post for awhile now. I even had three posts all written and ready to go, but I decided to condense them and give you the best bits in one post. 🙂 I wanted to share my small goals I set myself each day/week, along with how I maintain my sanity, or have “ME time”. First, let’s talk about alone time. I definitely agree that we moms need some time to ourselves, away from our kids, even if it’s just for an hour! We are constantly looking after our kiddos, making sure their every need is met. So much so, that we tend to forget about our own needs and mental health. This is something that I didn’t want to do for almost a whole year of Olivers life, and then I…
