  • Change your hair, change your life :) I have hit the point where I continually stretch my hair about 7 days (or more) inbetween washing it or blowouts with @michaelfking. It has never been better!
I’m showing you how I style 8-day hair, and the products that have helped me along the way.

  • Would you believe it if I told you she wasn’t always this sweet? 🤣
👉🏼 for a real life view of our relationship.
Also, I honestly can’t tell you the last time I’ve taken a photo and actually INSTAgrammed it within minutes.
  • Working out with them is my favorite.
Because Crossfit and weight lifting have become such a huge passion and part of my life, why wouldn’t I want to teach them as young as possible?
My 6YO was doing Thrusters in this video like a champ😉 Gym time together has become a new favorite past time for my littles and I.
What’s something special you that you and your kids both love? -

  • This girl abso-freakin-lutely loves Santa!
Every holiday season, I have to add to my @thepinklilyboutique Christmas tops collection, and this year’s did not disappoint!
I’m linking my other favorites here and in stories 🎄

  • Making friends with women in this field of work is so amazing and uplifting.
The Sephora event last weekend brought this group together, and we decided to collaborate and give back to one of you! In our IG stories, a $200 Sephora gift card is up for grabs, just in time for holiday shopping:) -

  • Twinning is winning.
My girls begged to get these matching tops, and I will relish in them wanting to match their mama for as long as humanly possible.
These plaid tops and all of my littles’ shoes are 40% off right now (plus everything on the site)! They have some super cute winter and holiday attire out right now too. -

  • (Ad) Holiday baking season in full swing! I am not best baker, but I saw this recipe in the Lidl magazine for red wine cupcakes... obviously, I had to make them.
I found all of the ingredients @lidlus for under $15! Plus, it’s so much fun shopping and cooking with my littles (my daughter had fun, she’s mad she couldn’t eat one yet🤣) .
What is your favorite thing to make in the kitchen?

  • I’m not one from showing a ton of body shots on the gram. It’s just not my thing. But, because it’s the season for being grateful... Four babies, two big ol’ scars, and plenty of stretch marks later, I am beyond grateful for this body.
You know what I love the most about it? How my kids will watch their mama grow over the next year. 💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼 #strongmom
What is one thing that you are so thankful your body was given the ability to do?

We love hearing from you and getting to know you!
