Summatime is in full effect over here since we have our backyard pool installed and #HBDesertCasa is FINALLY almost ready to share more of! We’ve been taking lots of quick trips to the desert and between prepping the house for vaca rentals (more on that soon and my Honeybee Highlights newsletter will be sharing that info first so make sure you’re signed up for that list HERE!) and getting our own pool ready for the summer, I’ve been sourcing lots of summer day essentials to keep at both houses. From floaties to umbrellas to chic towels, these are the items I’m buying for the houses or that are just necessary for a beach, pool or lake day in my opinion! Hope you girls have a fun summer planned!
We’re a couple weeks away from Mother’s Day so wanted to pull together a major Gift Guide for you girls! Whether you’re shopping for your mama, sister, friend, or ar passing this off to the hubby (you know I am!), there are tons of options here. I broke it up based on the jewerly girl, homebody, beauty babe and lots of general ideas for anyone on your list. Happy early Mama’s Day!
I know it’s been a several months since we brought our new French Bulldog Beau home but you girls seem to be interested in alllll the puppy thangs. I put up a question box last week where you girls sent in puppy/dog questions so I wanted to answer those here today along with some of the products we’ve found most helpful for training.
By this point, most of us have the work from home thing down and I’m finally reaching for jeans and makeup at least a couple times a week (which is saying a lot compared to where we were to start the process last year). Don’t get me wrong, I’m in lounge and activewear a lot of the time but I do like reaching for a few things to upgrade my WFH look. I feel like an extra 10 minutes goes a longggg way when putting myself together in the morning and I’m more motivated when I put in a little effort.
With the kids only being in school a couple hours a week and all the at-home time lately, I wanted to round up some things we’ll be doing this year to still make the holiday special. My kiddos love this holiday and I know it’s usually because of all the social interaction (…and candy obviously) but since they can’t do their usual thing, I found some other ways they can still enjoy Vday! Whether you have kiddos or you’re just looking for a way to celebrate with your man or Galentine’s style (a personal fave!), here are 10 ideas…
After polling you girls on if you’d like a look into our recent schedule, it seemed like a lot of you were into it so I wanted to whip this post up. I’m always interested in how people’s day-to-days look and seems you girls are too! TBH our days are ever changing this year but lately this is our daily routine- short school days and homeschooling included. Hope you girls are all hanging in there if your schedules are still looking different too!
New year, new nothing?! Ha don’t get me wrong, I’m excited to see a new year and to have a fresh start but I think we all knew 2021 wasn’t going to THAT different from 2020. We’re more settled into our restrictions and at-home orders but I think we can all agree that the past 10 months have been really hard in a lot of ways. As I mentioned in my Fitness Confessions and 2021 Goals I’m working on lessening the wine (for better overall wellbeing) and focusing on myself and my health a bit- and I’m also trying to find ways to feel good along with all the heaviness and anxiety of this past year.
Now that I’ve covered 2021 fitness goals which is a major focus of mine for the new year (and lessening the wine consumption…), it’s time to tackle something else that’s veryyy necessary in our home right now. Between everyone at home, the holidays, and not a ton of structure, our house has definitely gotten messy. Time to reign things back in and go back to my own advice on ways to organize things- which honestly makes the days go much smoother in general.
Alright ladies taking a break from fashion and beauty this morning to chat all things tidying. Homeschool started today so I’m on an organization kick right now. I’m pretty diligent about trying to keep our house tidy (at least all the common areas) because it always makes me feel better mentally and the days just go smoother if the house isn’t a disaster from the get go. I try to clean up throughout the day as we go, or wake up before the kids and do a quick sweep of the house if I didn’t get to it the night before. And then I’m always looking for quick hacks to keep things tidy without a ton of effort. Here are a few of my go-to’s for that…
