    5 Things I Love About My Air Purifier

    This post is sponsored by GUARDIAN TECHNOLOGIES but the opinions and thoughts expressed here are my own. Did you know that the air INSIDE of your home is dirtier than the air OUTSIDE of your home? I found this hard to believe at first, since my home is my safe haven – the place where I raise my children. It never dawned on me that these walls would also naturally trap unwanted, “dirty” elements in our air. But it’s true! The EPA estimates that indoor air is two to five times dirtier than outdoor air — and even up to 100 times dirtier in some cases.

    A healthy swap for a family favorite // CAULIPOWER Chicken Tenders

    This post is sponsored by CAULIPOWER but the content and opinions expressed here are my own. Oh the busy weekday grind. Not going to lie, weekday meals sometimes can be the death of me! Finding easy to make meal options – ones that the kids like and ones that don’t make you sacrifice your nutrition – can be a challenge. I am always on the hunt for healthy options we can turn to in a pinch!

    My Go-To Summer Coffee Drink: Cold Brew Mocha Iced Coffee (Easy Recipe!)

    This post is sponsored by Chameleon Cold-Brew Concentrate but the content and opinions expressed here are my own. I like coffee. Like, a lot. In all its forms, I just find it glorious. Even the smell gives me warm fuzzies! I generally love drinking it in the morning before the kids are up – with a splash of cream, a pinch of stevia and my favorite collagen. But also LOVE it anytime of day over ice! It’s the perfect refreshing drink on a hot day or if I need an extra pep in my step during a busy week.

    10 Minute Makeup Routine!

    Happy Monday!! Ya’ll. These past few weeks for us have been complete chaos. G is about to graduate Pre-K (cue me crying like a baby), M’s travel schedule has been has hectic as ever, we’ve been working around the clock to wrap up house projects (if you follow me on IG – you’ve seen sneak peeks of our master bathroom refresh) and we have some big news to share pretty soon! Needless to say, we are ready for a vacation. I shared a simple makeup routine over on IG a few weeks ago and many of you have been asking for the product list. So here is the list of…

    Kicking bottled water and living better with Brita!

    This post is sponsored by Brita, but the content and opinions expressed here are my own. I’m a water snob. There, I said it. My husband already knows this to be true, but when it comes to water, I can be picky! Though we joke at home about my high standards for good water, really it can be boiled down to two simple things 1. I like clean tasting water, and 2. I like knowing that my water is free from contaminants that can potentially endanger mine and my family’s health.

    10 Positive Affirmations to Tell Your Kids

    The other night, I was scrolling through old pictures (I do that sometimes) and I came across a video of my oldest daughter and I from a couple of years ago. She is about two years old in it – and while to her we are simply playing a “repeat after me” game, to me, it honestly brought tears to my eyes. (scroll down for video) Just as hard as it is for us to parent these days, it’s hard for kids to grow up. Thanks to the advances of technology and social media, kids are being forced to grow up faster, they are being bombarded with things that test…

    5 Simple Ways to Wish Your Out of Town Sweetie a Happy Valentines Day

    Our Valentine’s tradition seems to be spending it apart… I think this is the 5th or 6th year in a row?… but who’s counting 😉 We’ve always made the most of it, and honestly it’s ok! Though Valentines Day is more of a family thing for us (i’m a total girl mom – think tutus, dance parties, heart coloring and cookie baking) but I will admit, sometimes I do get caught up in the romantic hype. Would it be nice to do something traditionally Valentines related ON Valentines day?? Sure. Who wouldn’t like that?! BUT, with M’s crazy schedule, it’s not always possible. So here are a few ways we’ve made…
