What are adaptogens and why do we need them? Adaptogens are nontoxic plants or herbs that increase the body’s ability to resist the damaging effects of stress and promote or restore normal physiological functioning. A less stressful life? Yes please.
It is finally starting to feel like fall here in Phoenix and I am living for it! I think fall pieces are always so much cuter than summer pieces. There’s just so many more styles and textures to play around with, especially since chillier fall weather means getting to layer and put together a complete outfit for once.
Traveling can be messy and chaotic sometimes, that is why I typically like to have a plan. Not a strict minute by minute schedule, but a vague idea of what I will be doing. Plus it saves time and stress. Some people may only plan on places they want to eat, or stay. Not getting the most out of their travel.
That is why I created a list of categories that everyone should keep in mind when planning their next vacay. This list is not specific to what to do but topics to get anyone started.
Okay so as you know I recently became a mom this Summer. But that was to a human baby… I have been a mom for the past year to my first baby, Hemingway. And if you knew me you know that I am a class A helicopter mom (I can’t help it).
Hemingway was great practice, he definitely help me find my own parenting likes and dislikes. Also the way that I personally like things (healthy, clean, organic, organized ). Ya know those type of things? It is a bit hard NOT to be a hovering momma.
As you guys all know, eating healthy has always been a top priority for me. I want to nourish my body with only the best, but sometimes, I don’t have the time or energy to prepare these types of meals.
That’s why I love Sakara Life. Sakara Life is a meal delivery service that’s comprised of only the most quality and healthful foods.
When I had to make the tough decision to supplement with baby formula, I was in shock by the ingredients in what’s available to us. There aren’t a lot of options in the US, unfortunately.
After looking into every baby formula possible. I decided that German formulas were right for us. Specifically, the Hipp brand formula. (This post is not sponsored).
As a new mom, I’m always on the hunt for the best products for me and my little one. The very best products are the ones that I can trust and that can simplify my life. I have definitely found that in my Willow Pump.
You guys probably already know, but Sedona is one of our favorite weekend trip destinations. It’s so beautiful, the weather is always nicer than it is in Phoenix and there’s lots to do. One of the best parts of visiting Sedona is getting to stay at the Hilton Sedona Bell Rock.
We LOVE vacationing here because it is just the best escape. The resort is so peaceful and relaxing as it’s nestled right in the middle of Sedona’s red rock mountains. Honestly no matter where you are within the resort, the view is spectacular.
Salads come in all different shapes, sizes, flavors, and believe me I do not discriminate. But if you think about it, all of the different varieties bring something different to the table, literally. So what makes a salad good?
The answer: so many different things. There are many parts to the equation that I cannot imagine my salad without. I am here to share my all time faves for the perfect at home salad.
As we all know I am organic everything! I get it, sometimes it may not be an option but using clean products, especially where it counts, will only add positive things to your life.
Being a woman we get so many “great” pleasures that men don’t have. The wider hips, child birth, societal pressure, and everyones favorite: periods. I have recently started to realize that many women just grab what is convent and go. I understand women are busier than ever these days. But your easy go to’s do not have to be unhealthy.
Because I mainly work from home I am used to the midday slumps or random mood spurts. But every since becoming a mom, being home is more work than ever before. Seeing the same four walls day after day can actually get tiring… believe it or not. This is why I have a few different daily life savers that perk me up and give me energy.
We are still pretty much burning up over here in Phoenix these days. Hopefully it will cool down soon for fall, but in the meantime we have recently found another way to keep cool.
Okay, I know I have lived in Arizona for a few years now and should be used to the extreme temps. But no. They are still rising and because of this, the outfit options aren't great. I can’t layer in the summer or ever throw on any type of cardigan or jacket to complete a look.
Since moving here I have tried so many things to look cute and keep cool & comfortable during the summer. While some of my efforts were not successful I am here to tell you about the ones that were. The pieces I stick to no matter what because I know they won’t let me down when the temps keep going up.
Have you ever been scrambling last minute to get everything ready for the party you are hosting? We have all been there. It is stressful, panicky, and if you are in Arizona like me: too damn hot to be going from store to store. So after learning from my mistakes I have decided that I am more of an online shopper.
