HOW WE STARTED POTTY TRAINING

I remember when we started potty training my son Ben. He was 2 1/2 years old and showing all the signs of readiness – pulling at a wet diaper, waking up dry from a nap. We started on

MY INSTAGRAM TIPS & TRICKS

Oh Instagram! It's pretty much everyone's "life" in squares... in pretty, eye-catching, picture-perfect, fomo-inducing, blogger's-world perfection... and possibly the best social media app to ever exist. Those Instagram folks are true marketing genuises. It's no secret that

TRENDING: PALM TREE PRINT

I love a good trend and this spring/summer season the palm tree print is everywhere; from bags to swimsuits to this amazing two-piece I bought at a little boutique at the mall. I love the silk material and how pretty it

SPRING SALES ARE MY FAVE

Spring is officially here and that means beautiful weather and sales, sales, sales. 
Everything related to "winter" will most likely be on sale in almost every store you step foot in. Exhibit A?

FLORALS & RUFFLES

Florals for spring! Groundbreaking! (Name that movie! haha!)
When it comes to the best spring looks, the first thing that comes to mind is florals, prints, ruffles and textures and if you mix all that in together, even better... because as they say; more is in fact MORE. 
I recently purchased this ruffle and floral top at ASOS, one of my favorite online stores. The styles are endless and when I received this one in the mail I knew it was a keeper. I love the ruffles all over the front and back of the blouse, as well as the pussybow neck. As you an see the sleeves are also super details and I just can't get enough of this shirt. 
Originally I wanted to wear it tucked inside my jeans but these jeans weren't high enough. Regardless I think it was a super chic and stylish look, perfect for spring. This type of shirt would also look amazon with white wide legs pants or palazzo pants, if you will. I can't wait to wear it again! 
You can get the top HERE. I got it in size 4 petite, but I did notice the petites are out of stock. ASOS has a big selection so check them out for other options too.

MY TOP LIP CARE PRODUCTS

When it comes to beauty trends I think it's safe to say that lips and lashes aren't going anywhere! And today we are talking all about lips. I am blessed with naturally plump and full lips but that's not to say I don't do anything to maintain them that way. We have to make sure our entire bodies are taken care of inside and out and today I am telling you how

APPETIZER IDEAS FOR THE BIG GAME

This #HalfTimeHero creation is brought to you by Farm Rich. All opinions expressed are my own.
I can't lie... I can't say I love football but I do enjoy watching the big game and I certainly love entertaining and enjoy the food much more than the actual sport. But I use any reason to make a cute food spread and enjoy some delicious appetizers and drinks with family and

BECOMING A BETTER MOM

For the past couple of weeks, I've been actively making it a point to work on my flaws and working on becoming a better mother and in fact a better woman, as I change certain aspects I don't like about myself, tackling one daily to-do list at a time. Because you know as they say "a happy woman is a happy wife... and a happy mom!".
