  • I am so excited to announce our partnership with @kinderus for the upcoming year. These girls feel like they just won BIG (and we really did)! 🌟🌟🌟
With the help of these two, we will be sharing all of the fun ways that we enjoy #KinderJoy. My kids have always loved Kinder Joy eggs, and we can’t wait to spread the joy!

  • A little #throwback🔙
This sunset over #virginiabeach is something that never gets old. *
Lately, it seems like life has been so crazy and non-stop, and I cannot get ahead of ALL THE THINGS! *
I’m trying to remember to take the time and remember that in all of the craziness, there are moments like this when I was blissfully happy... taking a casual, ridiculous selfie with my baby sister. *
And, even in the times that I’m not, to try and use the word I set for the year, and give myself a little bit of grace. ❤️

  • I have been LIVING for facial oils lately. So excited #evelomgifted me these fab products to try on my normal-dry skin! 🌟
I used to be so afraid of them, mostly because some brands that I have tried broke me out horribly.
This radiance oil smells amazing and immediately soaks into the skin. I have been using it nightly. 🌟
The mask is something that I will be using once a month. It has a thick, honey consistency and is something I use during my nighttime routine. The end result though... the most GLOWY skin. 🌟

How adorable are these rompers from @southerneclecticdesigns? They are seriously so cute.
PSA- I would say size up one of your kiddos are a little taller ☝🏼 •

  • I can’t even begin to tell you how refreshed I feel after @1213hairstylist stayed my hair! 💇🏼‍♀️
All I’m saying is... if you’re having a rough patch, self care and pampering yourself are a good way to boost that mood 😍

  • The weather here in VA has been crazy... winter, then mini spring, then winter freeze, then 70s. 🤦🏼‍♀️
One thing I know for sure, I love a good mimosa all year round! 🍹
Today on the blog, I’m sharing some of my favorite mimosa cocktail recipes.

  • Yesterday I talked about self-care. Let’s talk about self-love. •
This body has given me four babies.
It has been stretched to its limits, carried two babies at once, given birthday naturally, and via c-section. •
It isn’t perfect, it has stretch marks and curves, but it has done me well. •
I have put it through the ringer, trying so hard to push it as far as I can. I used to think the number on the scale mattered so much... thankfully I realized that strength is such a better goal. •
Accepting your body for the way it is, in all of its glory, is not an easy task. But if we want to talk about self care, we also have to learn to accept and love ourselves where we are at so that we can move forward and continue to be better by our own standards.
