During our last trip to San Diego we had the opportunity to stay at Catamaran Resort Hotel and Spa and we had the BEST time. We love escaping to cooler temperatures to enjoy some time outside as a family and The Catamaran did not disappoint.
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.
Okay, I totally get that the main benefit of brushing your teeth is so that people will not run away when you greet them, and the obvious dental hygiene perks. A pretty smile and healthy teeth is definitely worth the two times a day in my opinion. But what if I told you there are so many more reasons to keep up with your daily brushing habits?
As you all probably know, I love a good wave to my hair so I often start my days off with my curling iron. Curling my hair has been a part of my daily routine for as long as I can remember. The only downside is the time it takes and the toll that heat can take on your hair.
Luckily, I have found the perfect tool to give me the waves I want, without the hassle and damage. The T3 SinglePass Wave Wand promises consistent temperature, one-pass styling, and flawless, frizz-free waves.
My DockATot has quickly become one of my favorite tools as a new mom. The DockATot is a multi-functional lounger, co-sleeper and playtime lounger. They are OEKO-TEX certified, all natural, 100% cotton, tested for breathability and provide an ideal micro-climate for babies and tots.
As I was sipping on my glass of sauvignon blanc watching the waves crash against the sandy beach and the sun set into the pinky orange sky, all three of my babes by my side, I couldn’t help but think nothing is better than this. Traveling has always been my strong suit, I thrive in new cities, new restaurants, new people all around me. Which also got me thinking that I have had my daily glass of vino in so many amazing places that I must share!
These days life can be pretty hectic. Between being a full-time wife, mom and blogger, it’s important to remember that taking care of myself is still a priority. I have found that treating myself to luxurious loungewear can be a simple way to keep myself feeling comfortable and confident on a daily basis.
I am a firm believer that loungewear should be extremely soft and high quality, and while this seems like it should be a given, sometimes it can be hard to find. That’s why I’m so excited to share my new found love of Nudwear with you all.
When I had to leave my green-juice-filled, walks on the beach, endless restaurant options happy state of mind, to come to the desert, I was worried about many things. But one of my main concerns was what the hell I am I going to eat in ARIZONA….
Fast forward three years later and I can personally vouch for this dry, unfairly hot, desert town. There are some great spots all over the valley that keep me full, happy, and healthy. There are so many great options that fill my body, soul, and Instagram feed.
Two of my favorite things, wine and health benefits. I like when things are nutritious. Although I think I would still guzzle down some fermented grapes on a regular basis if the only thing it did was taste amazing. But after some thorough research I am happy to announce I get so much more done just by sipping away at the glass.
When it came to deciding on what kind of baby monitoring system we were going to use to keep an eye on Nixon, I really wanted nothing but the best. It’s so important that our baby cam is high quality, accessible and reliable, so that we can easily monitor Nixon at all times and feel confident that she’s doing okay.
That’s why we got the Nest Cam IQ indoor. This camera offers live video, smart phone alerts, 1080p HD, 3-hour snapshot history and even night vision.
Beach getaways will always be one of my favorite things. Even more so now that I have my very own little tribe to take along with me. I love when we all get to get away together, it's like an escape from all reality.
Fortunately our move to the middle of the desert wasn’t too far away for a trip to the beach. We can pack our bags and be soaking up the sun in five quick hours.
