Valentine’s Day is almost here and I can’t wait!! I love that this holiday is all about celebrating the people you love. Whether it’s a significant other, your little people, or your favorite girlfriends. It’s such a fun day! As much as I love the typical gifts that tend to go along with this holiday, I thought it would be fun to round up something a little different. I’ve put together a list of the things I think most women would really want. Whether you need some inspiration for you favorite friends, or need to throw some hints your husbands way, I think you’ll love these 5 out of the box gift ideas!
The pantry reveal is finally here! We are so happy with how it turned out! I don’t think I could love it more than I do! When we were designing the house, I told Joe the pantry was in my top 3 priorities to get just how I wanted it. I might sound like a crazy person, but it is one of my favorite places in the house! You all know how OCD I am, so to see it organized and labeled brings me so much joy!
Valentine’s is just around the corner and my little people can hardly wait! I love the excitement they bring into our home over every little holiday. When it comes to Valentine’s Day, it is all about celebrating the ones you love. I love to try and include personalized gifts, so when Shutterfly reached out about the great products they have, I was really excited to create some memorable things for my people!
When it comes to my wardrobe, I really like to focus on a few staple pieces. Things that can be worn multiple ways, and dressed up or down. Also, I try not to break the bank, but had to share my new found favorite, that is totally an item worth investing in for your wardrobe.
One of my favorite go to looks is 7 for all mandkind jeans and a tee, so finding good quality jeans is a must. I had a few girlfriends tell me about these jeans, and I’ll be honest, I was hesitant. I don’t usually spend so much on a pair of jeans, but you guys, they are worth the investment!
Friday is here again and that means it’s time for another round of Friday Finds. As I’ve shared more glimpses into the house, I’ve been getting so many questions on the details! It means so much that you love how it’s coming together as much as we do! Most of the questions have been about the same items, so I thought this week I’d round up the answers to your 10 most asked home questions in once place!
If you’ve been around here for a little while, you’ve heard me mention my 5 Minute Makeup Routine. It is probably my biggest tip in my “Busy Mom’s Guide to Getting Ready”, and I tell every girlfriend I know that it is a must have! Something that takes 5 minutes is such a game change for me, since I rarely have the time to actually sit down + do my makeup in the morning. Plus, I always seem to have a few little girls helping me or wanting in on it all! haha.
Valentines Day is just a few weeks away! If you’re anything like me it takes about that long to decide what to do for your hubby! Haha! To help us alllll out this year, I rounded up the men in my life and asked them all what they would want. I’m talking Joe, my dad, brother in laws, heck even some of the workers that have been in and out of the house! I’ve rounded up all their suggestions and listed the best Valentines Gift Ideas for Him! The best part is the majority are under $50!
Since Valentines Day is all about celebrating the one you love most, I tried and think of experiences for gifts too, instead of just things. With that in mind, I quizzed the men on this too and here’s what I came up with as my favorites!
The weekend is finally here and we couldn’t be more excited! Normally every Saturday I do what we call an Instagram Roundup. This is where I link all the outfits from the previous weeks Instagram posts and any amazing sales you need to know about. I wanted to start including an update on whats new in our life too, so to make things a little less confusing, we’re going to start calling it our Weekly Update! It will be the same information you are used to seeing, with hopefully even more helpful details!
This past week flew right by and it is already time for another round of our new feature, Favorite Finds. If you missed last week, this is a new series where I’ll highlight the things I’m getting asked about the most, and my must have finds I’d share with any great girlfriend! With Harper turning one, (cue the tears, you can read her birth story here) I wanted to devote this week’s post to all my favorite finds for Baby’s First Year. Having 5 little people of my own, its safe to say I’ve tested my fair share of products. From must haves for the nursery, baby gear, and sleep helps, I’m sharing it all!
I’ve mentioned it here before, and it should be no surprise to me, but you guys, Northern Utah is COLD! The craziest part is this has been like a record setting warm year, and we’ve basically had zero snow. But this California girl is freezing! As much as I hated to see Summer + Fall go, I love the opportunity living somewhere that has all 4 seasons brings to switch things up in your closet. When it comes to Winter, a good sweater is my favorite thing to find. Because they are so comfortable. Not to mention they keep you cozy and warm in the harsh weather, but can pull together some of my favorite looks!
If you follow me on Instagram, I mentioned I recently (well I shared on my stories) that I went on the hunt for a few new ones. I found so many fun options so I wanted to do a little sweater round up to share my favorites!
