Mom Monday {Falafel Bites}

0comments

I made these super easy Falafel bites the other day and Piper literally licked her plate and mine! When this happens I find the need to share. These were super quick to make, these ingredients are things you may already have in your kitchen, and your whole family will enjoy them. I tried sticks and meatball shapes, but the sticks prooved easier for dipping in the yummy yogurt sauce. Recipe adapted from this one.

Inspiration to go {garden flowers}

0comments

My beautiful amazing mother was visiting us for the last few days and she picked the most beautiful flowers. I asked her where she found them, and I blushed when she said “in your backyard”! Sometimes we need to be reminded that beauty is often right under our noses. We don’t need to look far, just look up. Have a fabulous weekend my friends!

Hot off the press {box invites with custom monogram}

0comments

The perfect blend of vintage and romance, this box invite was all about presentation. We created a custom monogram for the couple which was then printed on a vellum overlay.

The invites had a pocket on the reverse to house the extra pieces. Everything arrived in hand calligraphed boxes!! The natural color palette added a hint of rustic elegance.

Mom Monday {safe beauty products for kids & parents}

0comments

I am a huge believer that not only what we put in our bodies but we put ON our bodies can make a huge impact on our health and the health of our children. It can be a bit overwhelming finding safe and effective bath and beauty products. Here are a few of my favorites.

1. It’s no secret I rely heavily on The Honest Company for a lot of our household  & beauty products. We use their toothpaste and Piper uses their children’s toothpaste.

2. With Piper and I having the same curly, unruly hair, Shea Moisture is the best for our hair. Plus I know what all the ingredients are and most of them are organic! Bonus!

3. I just discovered this Everyone lotion and Everyone body soap. It comes in a huge bottle and we all love it.

Also I use the Skin Deep app and website a lot when researching different products. It’s a great resource! DIY natural also does a great job explaining some ingredients you want to avoid in your beauty products, here.
