MAMA STRONG: THE YEAR OF THE MOTHER

2020 Is The Year Of The Mother. We’ve had to learn how to balance the impossible without being able to safely leave our homes. Many days have felt nearly impossible since mamas never get a day off yet we’ve made it through. I designed this “Mama Strong” sweatshirt for all of the amazing mamas out there to wear as a BADGE OF HONOR this year and always. I’ll be donating 10% of the proceeds to March of Dimes’ ‘Mom and Baby COVID-19 Intervention And Support Fund.’ 

NAIYA’S (QUARANTINE) THIRD BIRTHDAY

I blinked and we officially have a three year old!  I’m sure I sound like a broken record at this point but I truly can’t believe how quickly time is FLYING by with my girls.  Also, the growth between ages 2 and 3 is truly mind-blowing!  Last year at this time, Naiya was a baby who had just started nursery school and this year, she’s a non-stop talking tiny person (who is home with us all day during this global pandemic but of course, that’s another story!). Sharing photos today from our special, low-key birthday weekend together and a Naiya update below too. It wasn’t the birthday celebration we would have planned but since Naiya was smiling the entire time, it was definitely one for the memory books. 

FIVE SECRETS TO BECOMING A (MOSTLY) ZEN MAMA

Los Angeles blogger, RELish By Arielle shares how she meditates during the global pandemic

For the past few months, I’ve been on a mission to find a little slice of zen amidst the CRAZIEST YEAR EVER.  Since it’s becoming increasingly difficult to do so, sharing some tips below that have been working for me.  All of these ideas may sound rather simple but I’ve found them to be extremely helpful during this social distancing time. I can only hope that they help you too!

WHERE TO SNAG THE PERFECT WHITE TEE

White tee’s are a big staple in my wardrobe. No matter how basic they are, though, finding the perfect one has always been tough for me. They often lose their shape in the wash, they don’t fit right or they’re just not flattering. If  you’re on the hunt for the perfect white tee too, sharing my current fave which happens to be on sale for just $15. Sharing where to snag it below and how I’ve been styling it too.  Topping off today’s post with some recent photos of Naiya and Sadie because what’s an outfit post without their smile faces, LBH?

HOW WE’RE STYLING QUARANTINE BASICS

Naiya is turning three years old this weekend! I literally blinked and here we are (I’m not crying, you’re crying!).  Naturally, I’ve been going down a Naiya photo rabbit hole back to the first moment I met her and it’s all just so surreal.  Sharing some recent snaps of Naiya and I during this everlasting quarantine in basic outfits we’ve been wearing on repeat. Commemorating the end of her being two and officially becoming a three-nager!
