I hope you are all enjoying Spring and are getting ready for summer! I wanted to switch things up a little bit and share some of my current favorite things! As a busy mom of five, I’m just trying to survive and keep my kids healthy and safe, so I thought you might benefit from… Continue reading My Favorite Things Right Now
I was lucky enough to begin my role as “potty trainer” with two girls. The ease of potty training them definitely skewed my view on what potty training means from a universal sense. It was quick, easy, and clean. They pretty much figured it out on their own, and decided when they were ready to… Continue reading Potty Training Boys is NOT Easy
I, along with many other women I (I assume), often feel pulled in so many directions on a daily basis that something needs to give. I work a full time stressful job, have four kids, am pushing 23 week pregnant with baby #5, own my own business, and still have to keep the house in… Continue reading The Importance of Self-Care

But, I’ve also learned that anti-aging and skincare also comes from within. In my research, I’ve realize a secret ingredient that helps… Continue reading A Secret Anti-Aging Solution
I was feeling really good at about 6 months postpartum when my weight was lower than my pre-baby weight, but something wasn’t really sitting right with me. Actually, many things weren’t sitting right….or the same way they used to.
At three months postpartum, people keep commenting on how great I look! While it is very flattering, the first thing that comes out of my mouth is “you should see me naked…it’s all an illusion.” As most new moms know, things shift and your body isn’t quite the same…at least not at three months… Continue reading A Real Weight Loss Plan for New Moms
This month is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and yet another reason for me to shout from the rooftops that beauty is NOT a reason to expose yourself to toxins or chemicals linked to cancer, hormone disruption, and more.
