I’m feeling like a super mama this week.  After a number of sleepless nights, I made it through two cross-country flights with Naiya and Sadie (without Phil!) in these crazy uncertain times.  We were masked, armed with sanitizer, snacks, toys, toddler headphones–ALL the things. Rounding up tips and tricks I learned along the way in hopes that they’ll help you and your family too during these uncertain times.

REMEMBER SHOPPING WITHOUT A MASK?

I originally drafted today’s post a lifetime ago when I was uber-prego with Sadie and the world was still “normal.” I remember having such bad morning sickness sorting through all of these grocery store photos, I couldn’t bring myself to press publish so I hit ‘archive.’ Thankful to have rediscovered these shots this week because they have so much more meaning now. Naiya and I took these photos for a branded shoot and today, I’m finding comfort in seeing a snapshot of what life was like before COVID-19. Remember grocery shopping without a mask or without waiting in line six feet apart to get in?! Sharing these photos with you today as well as a family update. Spoiler alert: COVID-19 has really hit home for our family and life over the past few weeks has been a lot.

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!
