Have Some Wine | Here's The Benefits

Have Some Wine | Here's The Benefits

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.

My Baby Monitoring System | Featuring Nest

My Baby Monitoring System | Featuring Nest

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 Getaway | What To Do + What To Pack

Beach Getaway | What To Do + What To Pack

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.

Our new guest room is minimal but dreamy, and I am so OBSESSED.

Finding Peace of Mind With Your Newborn | Featuring Owlet

Finding Peace of Mind With Your Newborn | Featuring Owlet

While there have been so many changes in my life over the past year, something that has been a definite constant is making sure that Nixon is healthy. When I was pregnant, so much time and effort went into growing my baby and ensuring I was doing everything in my power to keep her healthy and strong. Now that Nixon is here, my priority is still to make sure that I’m doing everything possible to keep her safe.

Sometimes it’s hard to know how babies are feeling, but the Owlet Smart Sock has really given me peace of mind.

On The Cleaner Side | Products I Used While Pregnant

On The Cleaner Side | Products I Used While Pregnant

I've always tried to to err on the side of caution when it comes to beauty products, food and my overall health. I'm not exactly crunchy, but I do my homework when it comes to my health. I make decisions based on the information available and my own intuition. When I found out I was pregnant, I knew a couple of things I would be dropping right away. I'm ok with a chemical here or there, this is the real world and eventually, my baby will come into contact with said "toxins" at some point. But multiple toxins that are proven to cause harmful effects, used daily in my products, I have a problem with. 

Here's a list of the products I did use while growing a baby! Always do your own homework and of course, chat with your doctor before trying something new.

Well, I meant to write this before I popped out a baby but here we are...I bought some great third trimester pieces that I've yet to wear because little one decided to come early. So I wanted to share my favorite looks throughout my entire pregnancy here! Everything is tagged and shoppable. 

Tastier Healthier H20 Hacks

Tastier Healthier H20 Hacks

The other day I was drinking the last of my 128 ounces of water, and it got me thinking about how many people don't drink as much water as they should. Why is that? Personally, I love getting every last drop in. It keeps my day running smoothly, skin plump, digestion system on track, and I don’t mind the taste at all. But I do know a lot of people who drink other things such as soda, juice, energy drinks, etc. because they all taste better than water.

My Postpartum Essential | Featuring Mama Strut

I couldn’t be happier with how our our birthing story turned out. We feel so blessed to have come home with such a healthy and happy baby. While Nixon’s health is EVERYTHING, it’s so important that I make taking care of myself a priority as well. That’s why I am obsessed with Mama Strut. This company truly cares about the care and recovery of new mamas.

My New Studio | Details | Designed By The LifeStyled Company

Now that I’ve had some time to really let my new home redesign by The LifeStyled Company sink in, my only regret is not getting my office redesigned sooner! It’s crazy what a difference having the right space to work in makes. Not only is my office now spacious and organized, but it’s also so on brand. Working in this environment has really helped my creativity flow and I truly feel so inspired every time I sit down to work.

Our Birth Story

Around push NINE, Dr. Newman says "stop pushing" and I see him pull out a precious little tan baby!! I hear a shrill little cry! Kevin goes, "babe she's sooooo cute". I honestly felt like I was dreaming and I kept waiting to wake up.

Bumble x The Bar Method Event

Bumble x The Bar Method Event

Our last Bumble event at The Bar Method was so fun! I absolutely love whenever I get the chance to mix two of my favorite things: fitness and networking. Our BumbleBFF events are always a blast but this one was extra amazing because we got to partner with one of my favorite bar studios, The Bar Method.

Airport Hacks & Tips

Have you ever been in a frantic state running semi late but kind of on time for your flight? And then when you are going to check your bag the scale reads ten pounds over? But it’s like you need all three lotions, the extra four outfits, and that magic bullet blender for your morning smoothie ritual. So there you are on the “God knows what has been on here” airport floor trying to do a bag shuffle and make it work, all while trying to catch your flight in time.

Make Friends With The Sun

Make Friends With The Sun

The days are getting brighter and the rays are getting stronger in most places this Summer. Ahhhh the sun, the brightest and biggest star, that delivers so many benefits to us. Think of it as an exclusive club (that everyone is invited to) and you don’t have to pay a cent. Now with most club memberships you have advantages just for being a part of the team. The sun is no different, Vitamin D, immune support, brain health, aides in the decreasing of asthma, a natural pain killer, a mood booster, these are just a few sun perks one can gain.
