The Best Sports Bra for Those Blessed in the Chest

Reviews, Style

I hate exercising. There are a variety of reasons why, but one of the biggest ones (no pun intended) is that after three kids, things start to fly around when you’re moving and they’re not properly secured. I’ve found that one way for me to hate exercising a little less is to constantly change it up with different classes: barre pilates one day; spinning the next; and then maybe one day I’ll graduate on to the Zumba class. But in…

The article, full of her relatable quotes about parenting, is worth the read. #momcrush She might be a Grammy-winning pop star, but #TheBeautifulIssue cover star #Pink admits she’s just taking it “day by day” when it…

Stitch Fix Review: Weekend Getaway Edition

Reviews, Style

I’ve been a Stitch Fix customer for almost four years now. After I had my first child, going to the mall proved challenging but not impossible. The next two kids, while cute, proved what a pipe dream leisurely pursuing the mall for that perfect outfit really is. So in theory, Stitch Fix sounds like a working moms dream – fill out a short style profile and a professional stylist will send you five pieces specifically suited for your taste and…

Stitch Fix Review: Not Too Shabby

Reviews, Style
Mia Ozella Laser Cut Sandal

My last few Stitch Fixes have been, how do you say, no bueno. My last one in September was so horrendous that I took a brief hiatus from the service, even though they offered to re-style me for free. After having several “I hate all my clothes!” days in a row, I decided what the hell, let’s give Stitch Fix another try. With the $20 styling fee waived, I literally had nothing to lose. In my note to my stylist,…

#OOTD: Casual Colorblocking

Outfit of the Day, Style

I was in a hurry to get dressed this morning, so I pulled a bunch of basic camisole and pants out and paired them with a blazer purchased from Costco (don’t judge!). Colorful burgundy heels and a favorite necklace completed the look, and I was pleasantly surprised with the finished look. What I’m Wearing Grey Nicole Miller Blazer (purchased several from Costa a few months ago) The Loft Camisole (still available, and I loved it so much I also bought…

#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

Mom Life
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…
