Hey Stitch Fix Stylist: Dress Me for My Beach Vacation

Reviews, Style

Every once in awhile, the stars align and we get to go on VACATION! But we all know a vacation is no vacation for mom. Just getting ready for it is filled with stress, packing lists as long as a CVS receipt and more stress. (Total first world problems, I know!) For our upcoming week long trip to the beach, I decided to try and take one thing off of my ginormous to-do list: packing for myself. I sent an…

Brutally Honest Reviews: Cupshe Swimsuits

Let's Spend Some Money, Reviews, Style

Pools are open, the car is packed for the family beach trip and summer is officially upon is! The kids all have new swim suits, beach towels and flip flops but what about mom?! The hunt for that “it” suit that makes you feel like your pre-kid self but also provides coverage and eh-hem, lift where you need it is on! We’ve seen ads for Cupshe everywhere this season and have gotten lots of questions on whether those under $30…

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…

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,…

Just in case you haven’t heard of Evereve Trendsend, it’s one of the newer box subscription clothing services for women. The difference is this one is designed exclusively with moms in mind. Evereve was started by a mom about 10 years ago and focuses on mom-empowering messages and clothing to help moms feel beautiful and juggle it all. This subscription service does not have a styling fee on the front end like others do. Instead of sending a few pieces,…

Revlon One Step Hair Dryer

Beauty, Reviews

All over Facebook, women are posting about the Revlon One Step Hair Dryer & Volumizer with claims of this dryer “taming the frizz,” being “life-changing,” and “cutting drying time in half!” But what really happens when you click add to cart? Does this new miracle product live up to the hype? My hair is fine by nature and while it has some natural wave, it’s definitely never been coarse or hard to straighten. My problem is, like most moms, a busy morning schedule.…
