Fall Sweater Roundup (on a Budget!)

So let’s just say I’m very picky when it comes to sweaters. Don’t get me wrong, they don’t have to be cashmere or designer (did I mention I’m the bargain queen?), but I just happen to go through a very elaborate checklist when I try on a sweater: Is it soft? Does it itch even […]

My End of Summer Favorites

  Hey Mamas!  I feel like I dropped the ball these past few weeks. We were away for the whole month of August visiting my family in the Caribbean and it felt so good to disconnect for a bit. Nothing like family time and, of course, the ocean to recharge your batteries. It was so needed. […]

8 Benefits of Soccer for Toddlers

Last spring, Liam joined Soccer Shots, a wonderful soccer program for little ones between the ages of 2-8.

My Favorite Safe, Nontoxic & Eco-Friendly Baby Toys

Noah is on the cusp of teething, and, of course, when I searched the house for all of Liam’s old baby teethers, they were nowhere to be found. Even the ones you put in the fridge… Disappeared. Gone. I decided to browse Amazon for the safest, eco-friendly, quality teethers for my little guy (they have […]

Renovating With a Purpose: Patio Meets Nature

After living in a tiny dorm in college and a terrace-less apartment for a total of eight years, the fact that our house had a small porch and yard was a major bonus. The little outdoor deck was simple, a little worn out by weather and time, but none of that mattered, because I had […]

The No TV Challenge: A Day With No Screen Time

Let me be honest for a sec, here. Between winter and Noah’s birth, Liam watched way more television than I’m comfortable with in the past few months. But, to be perfectly honest, it’s really all about survival the first three months. All moms know that. And that’s what we did… Survived. Now that spring is […]

3 Reasons My 6 Week Old (Probably) Started Sleeping Through the Night

I never thought I’d say this… but, at five weeks old, our son Noah joined the Sleeping Through the Night club. I can’t help but think the universe felt bad for us after what we went through with Liam… So bad that it decided we deserved a break with this second baby. Most nights, Liam […]

3 Ways to Fix Your Baby’s Flat Head (Without the Helmet!)

Our little guy has been the best sleeper. I’m literally shocked. Recently, he’s been sleeping from 6:30pm to 5:30am, nurses for 10 minutes, then goes back down until 8:30am!

Loving Your Space: How to Live Clutter & Stress Free (With Kids!)

I don’t know about you, but, for me, it is essential for my home to be organized. If I live amongst clutter, my mind is cluttered, too. I cannot see clearly unless my home is clear of the little messes. In January, I started a little renovation project (yes, I was full blown nesting!) and […]

11 Newborn & Postpartum Items I Wish I’d Known About For Baby #1

Update: These past couple of weeks (five, to be exact), all I’ve been doing is prioritizing. In other words, all I’ve been doing is cuddling with my little guy. He’s all about skin to skin and eating (and, by that, I mean every hour or two during the day), so my routine has pretty much […]

Prepping for a Second Natural Birth

I was dead set on having a natural birth with my first baby, Liam. I wanted the sense of empowerment and accomplishment that came with a drug-free birth, and was very confident that I could do it.
