It’s been a few weeks since I did a Monday Mood article for you girls but hoping to get back into the swing of things as school starts (virtually) and we have some sort of routine again over here! I get a lot of questions from you girls on real-life topics like mama life, marriage, and balancing it all so trying to cover that today. But as always let me just say- I definitely don’t have it all figured out! We struggle daily over here but the good days outweigh the bad and we’re all just doing our best. Balance is key so today I’m sharing a few rules that help me balance life between blogging/work and fam time…

Alright loves I have a MAJOR Nordstrom Anniversary Sale picks post coming up by the end of the week but as you know it opened up to Icon members today! I’ve received several DM’s about my list this year for you girls who are already shopping (and those creating a wish list) so wanted to kick the sale posts of with my TOP picks I’m adding to cart! I have to say honestly this is one of the best years in terms of items from the SALE so here are my must-haves!
I’m working on bringing you girls more motherhood and lifestyle content and thought this would be a good topic to cover since I get the ‘how do you do it all?’ question a lot. And lemme just set the record straight: I don’t! Like any mom, I’m just trying to survive and do my best with working full time, #MomLife and now home school life. I know no matter what your work or home life situation is, motherhood is no joke and it’s the hardest job ever but also the most rewarding. At the end of the day it’s all about doing my best and trying to get work done without going totallyyy crazy and staying present with my fam as much as possible! Plus wine 😉

Hi loves, it’s safe to say it’s been a heavy week over here (as i’m sure it has been for many of you as well). I’ve been using this time reflect, listen, and try to educate myself on ways that I can help. You all know I usually try to keep things light with my instagram and blog but there are somethings you have to speak up about and racial injustice is definitely one of them. I’ve paused all posting on my instagram feed and blog for the rest of the week (to help amplify voices of the black community) but wanted to share a few resources today in case you’re looking for a place to start as well. As a mom of two, our home is the first place i’m working on. Educating my kids and having those conversations that inequality and racial injustice do exist is so important. So here a few resources I’ve found to be helpful if you’re not quite sure on how to start those conversations….
Happy Monday loves! I’m back with another Monday Mood post, which is all about helping to get your week off to a good start especially with all this craziness going on. So far I’ve covered the workout equipment I use weekly and how we stay organized as a family, and this week I thought I’d talk about motivation. I know with the current situation it can leave us all feeling slightly unmotivated so today I’m sharing a few things I do that help keep me motivated (because believe me, I’m def not always motivated either).

Happy Monday babes! Back with Round 2 of MONDAY MOOD. If you missed it last week, this is a new series that will be live first thing every Monday as a bit of inspo or motivation for your week! This week is for all you mamas out there since Mother’s Day is coming up and it felt fitting! While I’m definitely not the most organized person in the world, I do keep things somewhat organized when it comes to the kids. I learned from when Ava was just a baby that staying organized and on a routine really helps not only you and your sanity but kiddos as well. Some sense of organization just helps for a happier home and keeping everyone on the same page, too!

Hope everyone had a great long weekend! We’re packing up for one last Winter Trip to Aspen and we’re all very excited over here! Before heading off to the mountains, I wanted to share what I was packing with you girls. We always take one cold-weather trip a year so I always pack some of the basics and then obviously some fun and more trending to pack in. Everything from boots to jackets to skincare essentials that are ahhhmazing for the snow and dry weather is below and I’m also sharing a bunch of finds from a couple BIG winter sales! Lastly, sharing a few picks for the kiddos since we always have to grab items since they outgrow everything so quickly.

It goes without saying that the little black dress is a closet staple, but come Fall I’m allll about the LBLD (little black lace dress)! Lace adds a feminine appeal and it’s the perfect combo of classy with just a hint of sexiness. It’s a way to elevate the classic LBD while not doing anything too extra. I always end up buying a little black lace dress this time of year because they can be worn on repeat from wedding to holiday parties to date night. Super versatile and a fall staple for me! From party dresses to sweet minis and a few classic options, scroll through below for the little lace dresses I’m lovin’ on and a new one I’m OBSESSED with!

Would you girls want to see a Fall Trends article highlighting what I’m into and not into this season? Lemme know! For now, let’s get into Deals + Steals – lots of good ones to share this week!
