My [Not So] Capsule Wardrobe

I looked into my closet and felt overwhelmed. I had plenty of clothes. In truth, much more than any one person needs, but I felt as if I had nothing to wear. And no outfits revealed themselves to me. I’ve done this dance over and over again since I had our son back in 2013. Gone were the days of effortlessly wearing anything because my body had changed. It had changed majorly, but my wardrobe […]

Yes, I’m still breastfeeding

While this year’s World Breast Feeding Week has come to a close, I can’t help but reflect on the last 4 years I’ve spent as a mother. Breastfeeding has been such a huge part of that. I started breastfeeding in June 2013 when our first baby was born. The bond was incredible and while it wasn’t always the easiest journey (more about that here & here), our breastfeeding relationship lasted 26 months just in time […]

LipSense gave me something special & I want to share it with you!

What was it about LipSense that moved me so much that within a week I had decided I wanted to sell it? Was it how hassle free it is? Sure, that’s nice. I love that my color really does last all day long and that my lips are healthier than they’ve ever been, but there was something more.  I had never wanted to mess with lipstick. Honestly, I felt foolish wearing it, like I looked […]

Raising Zola Breastfeeding Shirt — Part One ((The Serena))

Finding cute clothes to breastfeed in is always a pet peeve of mine. I need to be able to get dressed quickly feel good about myself & have the ability to breastfeed in public because I’m a mom of two tiny humans. It’s a tall order, and when our son was little, one I often could not fill. I ended up sacrificing fashion for function and I hated it because I didn’t like the way […]

A Trinket Trunk — Unique Handstamped Jewelry with an Unexpected Message ((#Review))

*I received these products for review. All opinions expressed are my own.* As I’ve gotten older, I’ve found that the items that bring me the most joy are the ones that are simple, beautiful, and heartfelt. One such piece is my green heart necklace that my husband (then fiancé) bought me from Pike Place Market in Seattle and gifted me when we met up for dinner. I cherish that heart. For me, the sentimental value […]

Just (be) Happily Me in 2017 ((Berry+Mono Featured))

*I received this Just Happily Me shirt for a discount, but my love for it is all my own!* There is a trend at the beginning of a new year for people to make lofty goals for themselves usually of the physical variety. For some who turn these goals into action and succeed, that is amazing! But for the majority, myself included, come the end of the year my goals from the beginning hang heavily […]

A Breastfeeding Kind of Mama ((Jasmet Tee & Cover Review))

*I received these products for review. All opinions expressed are my own.* To say that breastfeeding is a huge part of my identity as a mother would be underselling the impact it has had on my life. Since our first baby was born back in 2013, breastfeeding has influenced so much of my world. Truly even before he was born since my body decided to start producing liquid gold at 30ish weeks. It was…interesting. Haha  […]

A Mama’s Body Image Series: Body After ((TWO)) Babies

The beauty of growing as you get older is our capacity for change. I can say with absolute honesty that I love myself more now than I ever did before having children or even following the birth of our son. You can read my postpartum thoughts from 2014. I re-read that post and was surprised by some of how I felt, but the post-labor waddle I described, I have to say, is completely spot on. It is […]
