QUARANTINE DIARIES: REUNITING WITH GRANDPARENTS

After over a year of isolation, we were on top of the world seeing fully vaccinated family from near and far over the past few weeks here in LA! It literally makes me cry looking at these photos, thinking about how truly special this time was (and how much time we have all lost together too while the kids are so little). I know SO many of you have had quite the year and are in the same boat so I know you can commiserate!

SPRING SNAPS: JASON WU DENIM SKIRT

Naiya and I snapped these photos a few weeks back as LA started warming up for spring. Naiya would only leave the house if she was able to dress herself (girl boss in training!) and she went with this all red everything ensemble. We took a short drive to Pasadena, California for a change of scenery during quarantine. As more people in California are getting the vaccine, we’re SLOWLY making our way outside more.

JETKIDS: THE KID’S TRAVEL BRAND YOU NEED TO KNOW

Our family has officially fallen in love with JetKids by Stokke–a brand that makes traveling fun, easier (and chic!) for your minis. I first came across JetKid’s colorful ride-on suitcases, soft merino wool blankets and spacious travel backpacks on IG. The products were SO memorable and functional, I knew our girls HAD to have them too. After all, traveling with our kids as much as possible is part of our family’s DNA (more here and here). Sharing my favorite JetKids products with you today, breaking down how they work, and sharing some photos of Naiya and Sadie obsessing over them. At this point, we literally can’t imagine traveling without JetKid’s line so I’m excited to share our review. Scroll down to the bottom of this post for a 25% off discount code!

JOUER: AFFORDABLE CLEAN BEAUTY ESSENTIALS

LA blogger, RELish By Arielle tries Blush & Bloom Cheek + Lip Duo by Jouer

When it comes to makeup, I’m always on the hunt for clean beauty products that enhance my skin. As a full-time working mama, I don’t have time to do a full face of makeup before all of the zoom calls. If I do have 5-10 minutes to spare in the morning (IF!), I love adding minimal makeup: mascara, a dab of highlighter to my eyelids and cheekbones and some lip gloss. Naturally, I’m obsessing over a new product by Jouer that does ALMOST all of these things. Sharing this particular product with you today as well as a few others by Jouer which my skin has fallen in love with. If you’re looking to achieve an affordable, healthy, dewy glow, this post is for you.
