Summatime and the livin’s easy until the kids are looking for things to do 24/7 am I right? Ha I’m half joking but if your kiddos are anything like mine, they’re non-stop. I’ve learned by now that it’s all about keeping them entertained and being ready with lots of activities – some they need help with and some they can do on their own but it keeps the summer interesting. For all you mamas who are coming out of quarantine and straight into summer, I’ve got you covered with a BUNCH of ideas below. I tried to keep different ages in mind too so hopefully if you have littles, you can find something on here too. Don’t be shy – let me know what you girls do to keep the kids busy with a little free time to yourselves!
Alright girls, can’t believe another month has gone by already and it’s time for my June Cravings. If you girls missed it last month, I started sharing my Monthly Cravings mood boards with the vibes, trends and items i’m feeling at the start of each month. For June, It’s about effortless neutrals, gold jewelry, denim shorts, lived-in jeans, pretty rose tones, and alllll the highlighters – all which you can shop below.
I feel like more than ever I need a little help winding down after a long day with the whole fam and trying to balance work, home school and daily household tasks to keep our home running efficiently.

And all you mama’s know that there’s always a million tasks lingering before you feel like you can focus on yourself and chill out.
Ok girls, let’s be honest… how’s everyone surviving being with their spouse 24/7 right now?! Personally, we did pretty good up until like Week 6 and then it started getting pretty damn old. Half joking but even in the happiest of marriages, everyone being together at all times weighs on you. We’ve definitely been feeling it and plus just with all the extra craziness, uncertainty, and #HomeSchool, it’s no surprise there’s extra stress on relationships. Hubby and I have been together for over a decade so we know each other pretty well but you better believe we both drive each other cray at time. Here are some ways we’re dealing with the circumstances right now and staying on each other’s sides (most of the time!).
