Night out styles under $150

*This post may contain affiliate links* This past weekend we saw HAMILTON!!! It was everything I dreamed it would be and more. I held my husband’s arm the entire time because my eyes never left the stage, and I didn’t want him to feel like I was ignoring him. This trip was his wedding present to me, and it’s definitely going in my top 10 list of our favorite things we’ve done together. We scheduled a babysitter for A and…

Friday Fresh Picks – Sun essentials

When it comes to the summer sun we are extremely cautious of the sun. My husband had a small case of melanoma a few years back, and it’s changed our approach to skin safety. We aren’t beach people but when we do make the trip out you can see us covered and most likely pale as can be from the numerous layers of sunscreen. There are so many sun-safe options for the whole family, at a great price, you just…

Spring transitions with Pink Blush

Growing up we were taught about the four seasons, and my childish mind looked at those 4 equal parts of the pie thinking each season lasted as long as the last. But the truth is, Spring in the northeast lasts for a few weeks and then the dreaded 80 degree weather hits us. One day we are bundled up, and the next everyone is running around in short sleeves. My wardrobe has become a stock of layers that compliment each…

Learning to love my postpartum body with LuLaRoe

     I’m going to be frank, I’ve never really had an issue with my weight, mainly because I’ve spent most of my life in a dance studio. In high school and college I went from class to the studio. I’ve pretty much been 5’7″ and 120 pounds since my awkward phase in middle school. So when I had A things changed…A LOT. I gained a pretty significant amount of weight, as one does when growing a human being inside,…

Vauva Diaper Bag

     For months now I’ve searched for a backpack diaper bag that would serve more than one purpose. When I first had A I used a frumpy grey sack as a diaper bag, and since I didn’t really go anywhere it wasn’t such a big deal. After a few months we picked up a nice backpack for my fiance to use as a diaper bag when he had A. I loved it so much I started using it for…

Tis the season for looking good

One of the first few “quirks” I noticed about Tyler was how many watches he owned. I swear the guy had a watch for every occasion. There was a casual watch, dressy watch, a workout watch, and a work watch. As time has passed a few of those watches have been replaced by some convenient Apple products, but he still carries an inventory of about 3. So this Christmas I wanted to find a unique watch that would fit every…

Mommy & Me: tiedyeology socks

     I’m excited to show you guys these awesome tie dye socks from tiedyeology ! First off, the owner is so sweet and personable! I did have the hardest time selecting a color, because there are so many great options. I decided on Raisin and was more than pleased with the outcome; even my fiancé commented on how much he liked the color. I’m not a frequent tie dyer, so I was a bit nervous about the texture when they arrived,…

Mommy & Me: Fall Dress

   Let me start out by saying the mom version of this dress is VERY SHORT, and I suggest sizing up or pairing it with some skinny jeans. Overall I love both these dresses. It’s soft and thin enough to pile on layers in the morning, and slowly take a piece or two off as the day warms up. I paired our dresses with some tan boots, and a jean jacket, as shown above. And to those wondering I wore…

Mommy & Me: Little Black Dress

     As soon as I stumbled upon these dresses I knew we had to buy them. I will say they are absolutely perfect for fall! Both have enough flow for those first few weeks that stay in the 80’s, but you can easily add a cute pair of tights and a sweater for the cooler weather. I included a picture of the fabric details because I fell in love with the design. A’s dress has a deeper red, and…

Space 46 Boutique dress

 I’ve been waiting for a few months to share this dress on the blog! I bought it from Space 46 Boutique and I’m in love with the design! When teething has passed I plan to do a little shoot with A because of course I bought her a matching dress. The quality of this dress is what I love most. The tank is as comfortable as your favorite t-shirt top that you never want to take off. There is a lining under…
