Fun 4th of July Snacks for Kids

There's nothing better than the classic and patriotic pairing of red, white and blue! Today I'm sharing a few sweet treats I've whipped up to celebrate the 4th of July. Cooking and working with food in general is not my forte, so I wanted to make some fun and festive treats that were easy and kid-friendly (and quick)! Houston summers are hot and humid so my focus was on frozen treats first....more

CLEANING HOUSE WITH CLOROX® DISINFECTING WIPES WITH MICRO-SCRUBBERS

Recently I got to test out new Clorox® Disinfecting Wipes with Micro-Scrubbers. I've been using Clorox wipes for years in our home and at work, but the reason I especially love this new version is because one side of the wipe has a micro-scrubber texture that works on more stubborn messes and grime. It still has the same germ-killing power of their regular wipes (they kill 99.9% of germs, including E....more

Easter Basket Ideas for Girls with Aquafresh toothpaste

I love creating little gift baskets for every holiday. It's something I always looked forward to before I had children so it's been fun finding just the right items for each holiday. I thought it would be fun to share some items I think would make for a great addition to any little girl's Easter basket (alongside the chocolate eggs of course!) I'm not buying all of these for Harper's basket- some of these things are items we own (and love) and some are wish list items! I'm going to keep her Easter basket pretty tame since I went a little overboard for Valentine's Day this year!...more

Gentle Cleansing with Cetaphil

The first time I was introduced to Cetaphil® products, I was in high school, struggling with cystic acne. I had been using harsh cleansers on my skin, thinking they would improve my acne, but they just made my skin dry and exacerbated the problem.After months of crazy breakouts, I decided to take a different approach and picked up a bottle of Cetaphil’s Gentle Skin Cleanser on a whim one day at the drugstore....more

Photo Ornaments for the Holidays with Walmart Photo

Year after year, I'm always looking for unique holiday gifts for our family members. I know that some of the gifts our parents cherish the most are ones that capture our little ones as they grow. I recently had the opportunity to create some custom photo ornaments via Walmart Photo and I couldn't be happier with how they turned out!...more

My #RedKettleReason

A giving spirit is important no matter what the time of year, but the holidays are an extra special time where we are reminded just how critical it is to give back -- to build stronger communities and bring joy to others. My #RedKettleReason is my children....more

Fun Toddler Halloween Activities (DIY)

If I'm being honest, my favorite thing about Halloween is candy. Everywhere. In massive bulk packages and in bowls on people's desks for the entire month of October. And don't even get me started on Pumpkin Spice Lattes. Yes. Yes to all of that goodness. Since I don't want my toddler as hopped up on sugar as I am the entire month, I try to celebrate the holiday in other fun ways too. I love coming up with simple and easy DIYs for every little holiday and this year I thought I would create some simple Halloween toddler activities....more

StitchFix Maternity: Review #2

My second StitchFix Maternity order came in last week and I'm excited to share with you the items from my fix! First in my package was this beautiful top with lace trim sleeves by Market & Spruce ($58). Not only it is perfect for a growing belly, but it's long, flowy (but not too baggy) and the lace trim is darling ....more
