#OOTD: It’s Supposed to be a Dress

- Outfit of the Day

I picked this little number up at a local boutique, thinking it would be really cute for an upcoming spring family photo. While I’m just as tired of the cold shoulder trend as the next Mamanista, there was something about this dress that spoke to me. Maybe it was the spring-y floral print or the sweet bell sleeves, or the three kids in tow who were whining for me to just pick something. I had no time to try it…

This Month’s Obsessions: Wireless Earbuds and More

- General Fabulousness, Let's Spend Some Money
Beatsx Wireless Ear Buds in Matte Gold

Wireless Earbuds   I listen to a lot of podcasts. It’s quite frankly the only way to make folding piles of laundry tolerable. I also love listening to podcasts and music when I’m doing chores around the house or outside. But I can’t tell you how many times I’ve accidentally ripped the earphones out of my phone while doing something thing. It may be the reason why my two-year-old has started to say the f-word, because that’s what mommy says…

Valentine’s Day Gifts to Buy Your BFF (or Yourself)

- Let's Spend Some Money

Valentine’s Day is all about showing love to those around you. Yes, you should probably buy an overpriced card for your significant other. But let’s face it: the real heroes are our fellow mom BFFs. You know the ones I’m talking about: the person you text when you just CAN’T with your child anymore; the first person you want to talk to when the latest celebrity couple breaks up; the one who will bring you chicken noodle soup when the…

#OOTD: Weekend Athleisure

- Outfit of the Day

I want to send a bottle of wine and a love letter to whatever goddess made athleisure a thing. Moms were rocking this look way before any fashionistas did, but I’m not going to look a gift horse in the mouth (what the hell does that mean anyways?) No, I’m just going to strut my stuff in these amazing black acid washed moto leggings and purple tunic, both from Stitch Fix. The leggings are the Dayton Acid Wash Moto Detail Legging…

#OOTD: Flannel FTW

- Outfit of the Day

Soft. Cuddly. Hard to find. The qualities of a good man and a good flannel shirt. Luckily, I have found both. And one was from Target, and the other tries to keep me from spending too much money at Target (not gonna happen, boo.) A good flannel shirt is one I would recommend as a wardrobe staple. You can dress them up or down, and I’ve even made this one office-appropriate in a past wear.  Since it was a casual day…

The Best Photo Printing Apps for Busy Families

- Featured, General Fabulousness

I take a lot of photos. With three kids and family far away, how can I not? I even upgraded to a 128 GB iPhone (rose gold, of course) and expanded my iCloud storage so I can take and store more photos. Ask me for a recent photo of my kids, and I’ll immediately take out my phone and show you pictures of them an hour ago, a day ago, heck, even three years ago (thanks Timehop!) But ask me…

#OOTD: Stripes and Statement Necklaces

- Outfit of the Day

I have what some would call a sizable jewelry collection. We’re not talking Kardashian-level diamonds, but a pretty decent arsenal of accessories from Target to Tory Burch and everything in between. Why such love for the bling? Well, for one reason, unlike my favorite pair of jeans, it always fits. But really it’s because I believe jewelry can totally change the vibe of your outfit. Casual day? Go for a simple necklace.  Need to dress up a sweater? Add a…

- Featured, General Fabulousness, Humor

Over the past year, the three of us have really poured our hearts and souls into creating a destination where real women can feel good about themselves, no matter what size, age or weight you may be.
