As a child my mother struggled with how to care with all of my curly hair. Having very straight hair herself, she was at a loss and it was a constant problem. Being a mother of a child with curly hair myself I thought I would share our routine, to hopefully help those moms that are struggling with all that curly hair! Here are the rules and my must have products. You can do it!
As we dive more deeply into wedding season for us, I like to take a quick mental break and day dream about…
We will be taking a few days off but will return next week with brand new posts! Wishing you a Happy Valentine’s day!
It’s that time of year again, when you send your child to school with a clever valentine. I love these ideas because they are candy-less and you can pick the items up at the grocery store or Target. Plus they are so adorable! First up, package up a cutie with a tag or sticker that says “You’re a cutie”! Love that one. Pick up some little vials or bottles of bubbles and use the line “You blow me away”. Grab a bag of underwater plastic toys and add a tag that says “I SEA you are a great friend”. I love these little mazes with the line “You aMAZE me”. And lastly use plastic dinosaurs with the line “You are DINOmite”. Hope these inspire you guys for this years valentines. Have fun with it!

I read this fabulous post on Design Sponge yesterday with Hackwith Design on the importance of diversification within your business. All you small business owners, makers, creators whatever you may be, this speaks to you! The quote they have at the end is so perfect. Enjoy!
This photo I came across perfectly captures the color palette I am in love with right now. Neutrals with dusty grey blush and touches of coppers!! I am dying to create an invitation with this palette. So beautiful, classic yet feminine, modern and chic.
I have these daydreams of having a party inspired by things like The Black Apple and a magical fairy land. I love this vibe for a shower or birthday party! There are endless possibilities for details.
It’s pretty easy to make a smoothie that looks, well unappetizing. I had fallen into a rut of making what I call “The Kitchen Sink Smoothie”. Basically whatever we had in the house would end up in the smoothie. Spinach and carrots, strawberries and cucumbers etc…This many days would end up as a brown really yucky looking smoothie. And while it may have tasted good, the flavors started to get muddled. So we are now on a roll with making smoothies by color. It’s so fun, and the flavors really shine with each version. For now I have been sprinkling the flax seed and hemp seed on our granola, or using it in soaked oats so we still get those benefits. One of my favorite secrets, great for pink or purple smoothies, is to bake a bunch of beets and then have them in the freezer ready to go. Then you just drop one in the smoothie and the color you get from it is amazing truly! Happy smoothie making, friends!
We all have days or weeks where things just seem to weigh heavy on our hearts. I find this to be such a lovely reminder especially during those times! Enjoy your day friends!!
