Whole Foods Market’s Exclusive Beauty Bag + Giveaway

A few months ago a Whole Foods Market opened up down the street from my house. I can’t get enough. I am literally there a few times a week. Sometimes I take Bub and we have a date outside on the patio. Sometimes I just browse the aisles – without a list, just looking around. And 9 times out of 10, I’m sniffing bar soaps and swatching thangs in the beauty department.

Take My Sleep, But I Won’t Let These Kids Take My Beauty

This post was sponsored by Amopé™ as part of an influencer activation for the #AmopeCrowd and Socialstars™. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review, but all opinions are my own.

Girlsssssss, lemme tell you. Life is funny. The minute you think you’re on a roll, things switch up on you. Our family has been battling the flu on steroids around here. I guess I’m due. I haven’t been this sick in yearsssss and man, this thing just about took me out. Being sick, plus nursing a sick baby, a sick toddler and a husband with the man flu (the regular flu but somehow it’s worse when men get it…ha!) has drained me completely. Before all of this went down, I had finally gotten into a new little routine. Thanks to the Amopé™, of course…

6 Mugs, Water Bottles and Tumblers That Will Make You Squeal

Bottles

If you roll up to my crib and ask for something to drink, said beverage will probably be in a mason jar. I have a thing for mason jars. I put everything in ’em (helllooooo fridge oats) and I just love how cute they make everything look. When I’m not entertaining folx and treating myself to green smoothie, tea or ice water, chances are they’ll be housed in a mug, tumbler or water bottle.

And so, this is PERFECT timing for a Shopbop sale. I mean, when isn’t there a good time for a Shopbop sale? Tell me how much you love these…

My Blacklane Experience

Blacklane

Flying. I’m hitting the airport at least a half dozen times each year. It was about double pre-kids and now that I’ve got two babes in tow, it’ll be quite a while before I travel with both. Have you ever seen parents with more than one kid in the airport? Everyone is flustered. I’m not ready for it yet but when the time hits, I will definitely be using Blacklane.
