All About That #BeachLife

A few weeks or so ago, I was in Ft. Lauderdale posted up on the beach. Not ‘gon lie – it wasn’t an ideal vacation. I was juggling both babies and didn’t have Esposo to help me out since he was traveling for work. My family is fantastic about helping with EB and Bub but the beach just isn’t the same when you’ve got a nursing little and a 3-year old who thinks she can swim.

But all hopes for a beach vacation aren’t lost. I think I’m going to do a weekend by myself and I’m SO ready for it. I’ve got Clearwater on the brain, y’all. And like always, Shopbop has me all excited…

For the beachin’ dude…

Esposo is even more of a beach bum than I am. He’s the one that got me into boogie boarding and we’re forever competing on who can catch the biggest waves. He ALWAYS wins but can we talk about how cool those totes are? They would have made the best Father’s Day gift. It maaaay not be too late.

Traveling in Style with the Flyest Passport Holders Ever

Fly Passport Holders

I’ve got travel on the mind, babes. Granted, I’ve only really planned 2-3 major trips this year but I’ve already applied for both babes’ passports because something tells me we’ll be doing some serious travel in the next few months/years. First on the list? Canada. Don’t laugh. I’ve ALWAYS wanted to visit Canada during one of those non-snow months. That said, I’ve got fly in style, honey.

Got A Baby on My Hip and a Clutch on My Wrist

That title sounds like the beginning of a song, huh? *snort* I officially tossed my fancy purses in the closet. Giving birth to Bub means I need practical totes, y’all. And I’ll darned if I walk around with cloth diapers crawling out of higher end purses. I know. It sound snobby. Whatever. My purses scream everything but mom bag and with mo kids, I know you need mo space. Right? As a postpartum gift to myself, I purchased a darling JuJuBe bag and while it’s ridiculously functional and pretty, it’s big. So so big.

Shopbop to the flippin’ rescue again. Just look at these clutches…

I’m A Mom of 2 And Haven’t Run Away From Home Yet + Cool Baby Clothes Giveaway

You know those women who spent a great chunk of their girlhood wanting to be Moms? That wasn’t me, y’all. I’m not even going to sit here and pretend that “Be A Mom” was on my list of things to do while adulting. People freak out when you admit this kind of stuff because it may sound like I don’t want to be a Mom, but come oooon, my kids are too awesome to deny.

I don’t flood my social media accounts with pictures of my kids, but have you seen even a glimpse of these beings? They’re gorgeous and I could not be more proud to be their mother. But I’m sayin’…I totally didn’t expect this life of mommy’ing and I’m still shocked that we’re all semi-surviving. I thought parenting a toddler would send me running to the hills. Toddlers are craziness and it’s the most challenging part of parenting, so far.

It’s ShopBop’s Friends & Family Sale Again!

There is something about October. I really can’t put my finger on what it is specifically but I love everything about this month. I never realized how glorious it felt before. Pumpkin spice has nothing to do with it, either. But aside from being excited about change in the weather and and the impending birth of baby #2, so many of my  brands are doing these glorious sales. Shopbop included! 

Yes, I know…I am forever bragging about Shopbop and their fabulous purses, shoes and fits but if you’ve got some extra pennies on hand and want to treat yourself (or get a head start on holiday shopping), now is the time!

The Beauty Behind Ford’s Warriors in Pink

Warriors in Pink

Not gonna lie here, y’all – I am SO behind on cranking this post out and I have no one to blame but myself. The lovely people at Ford were kind enough to provide me with pretty pieces to highlight a very important initiative called Warriors in Pink.

Launched to provide support and conversation surrounding breast cancer, Warriors in Pink has recently celebrated 21 years and they’ve teamed up with Meal Train and Lyft to launch The Good Day Project. This online platform serves so many purposes but their main one is to help organize family and friends to bring meals to loved ones fighting breast cancer. Meal deliveries is one thing but they are going above and beyond by also helping set up errand services and childcare. Because, let’s face it – those battling cancer have so many things to worry about and to remove something as detrimental as food prep for the week can make all the difference in the world.
