As parents, we are always looking for the quick way to get things done, the simplest. I thought I would start sharing some of my kitchen hacks that I use regularly to get things done quick without compromising on health and nutrition. This is one I just recently started doing and it’s a total game changer. We get a CSA basket every 2 weeks and we always end up with an excess of greens. I typically throw away the beet greens, because I know I just won’t get to using them. Well the beet greens a few weeks ago were so pretty I couldn’t bear to throw away so I threw them in the vitamix with some water, froze them and voila, instant smoothie cubes. They are so easy to add to our morning smoothies, without having to worry about washing and trimming the greens on top of everything else that has to get done in the morning. The perfect short cut. I also have kale and swiss chard cubes now in the freezer. So great!
Happy Friday friends. It has been a couple of crazy busy weeks but I am always grateful for the busy. I couldn’t leave you without some fun things for the weekend. First on my to do list for the weekend is to go to my fave, Pressed Juicery to check out these vibrant Vogue Lemonades…yes please!! I also rounded up some of my favorite finds under $100 featuring my favorite color palette of course. Enjoy!!
Oh how dreamy this spot looks, in Dunton Hot Springs. I stumbled upon the most perfect adventure documented by Captain and the Gypsy King and my Wish I Was post was born. Sipping an adaptogenic hot cocoa wearing some killer clothes would really complete the experience dont you think?
There are constantly new fun baby products coming out that sometimes when registering or looking for a gift for a baby shower, it can be super overwhelming. Having a 16 month old I found myself thrust back into the baby world and made so many new discoveries. With that in mind I created the ultimate baby shower gift guide for you together with Baby Cubby. They have all of my most favorite baby items, so I put them together for you here in a handy guide. Most of these are products I use daily and are sure to be the perfect gifts. From the ONLY bottle my baby would accept, to the absolutely softest jammies ever. The little ruffle on them makes them pjs AND an outfit, perfect for when you are on the go and want baby to nap or sleep. A pair of Freshly Picked moccasins are the best gift, and they turn into an heirloom which I love. Now the Dockatot is something I never got but oh how I obsessed over it. It’s the king of getting your baby to sleep, and I love the play yard attachment for play and sleep. Seriously this would be the ultimate gift. Don’t forget mama, an ultra soft cozy blanket and a fabulous necklace that baby can chew on when teething, are great gifts. I love my chewbead necklace. Happy shopping friends!
I thought I would share the latest inspirations for one of my brides today. Her style is beachy glam mixed with soft ethereal textures and tones. This is one of my absolute favorite styles. I love playing with textures and patterns. Enjoy the inspirations!
Happy Mom Monday my friends! As I start my master plan for Piper’s 7th birthday…7!!! aaah!!, I thought I would share some of my favorite stealworthy ideas for your kids next party. The first one is actually from little Greyson’s first birthday party we had this past November. I created a Chewbead Necklace bar where guests could choose from a variety of different teething beads for their creations. This was such a huge hit, guests kept going back for more, creating bracelets, necklaces for themselves, key chains, it was so much fun!! I also LOVE this idea of a punch pinata. So adorable! Lawn games are always a fun addition to any party since everyone from the kids to the adults enjoy them. I love this milk and cookies themed board. I am a big fan of flower crowns, and fairy inspired crowns, so naturally this crown wall is a win win! I just love the simple but wow-factor idea of creating a balloon wall like this heart one.
Happy Friday friends! Self care is so important especially with everything we all have going on these days. Here is my Friday Fun centered around self care. My latest obsession is the podcast How I Built This, interviewing the coolest entrepreneurs ever. Self care for each of us can look very different. For me it’s about putting on some luxurious pj’s, grabbing a book, a superfood latte spiked with Sun Potion, and cozying up with a giant blanket. So whatever it looks like to you, don’t forget to carve out a little time this weekend for yourself my lovelies!
My husband and I have never really been the people to go out to a restaurant on Valentine’s day but we do like to cook fun things, and celebrate in small ways with the kids. Here is a fun peek into our Valentine’s day. My husband made us heart shaped pink pancakes for breakfast, we had pink baked donuts I made over the weekend, heart beet salad with pink garlic vegan aioli, and I packed a fun valentine’s themed lunch for Piper. Would love to hear what you guys do on Valentine’s day. Any fun traditions!?
Happy Mom Monday friends! I thought I would share some shots of the most precious bunnies my mom handmade for the girls for Valentine’s day. She used bits from their old clothes, to make them extra special. I absolutely love them as do the girls. My mom does not forget any detail, each bunny came in a handmade pouch made from old cashmere sweaters, with a pink cashmere heart sewn on each one. Seriously how adorable right? Such a sweet keepsake, I just love that I can remember each one of the outfits she used, and they hold such special memories.
