THE SAFER WAY TO CLEAN PRODUCE YOU NEVER KNEW

Give Naiya, Sadie and I ALL the fruits and veggies but make them clean! Until recently, I never focused on the fact that SO many harmful chemicals live on the skin of produce even AFTER they’ve been washed in water. Excited to partner with Vege Aqua today to share an all-natural spray that has changed our family’s healthy eating game.  Loving that this company also has an all-natural spray for safely cleaning baby products too–from Sadie’s pacifiers and bottles to toys.

MUST-HAVE ROMANTIC DRESSES

I’ve officially entered a new stage of quarantine fashion–the ‘all dresses everything’ (and overgrown eyebrows) phase. I’ve been living in romantic maxi dresses over the past few weeks because they’re SO much comfier than pants in this 100 degree heat!  I also love that they instantly make me feel more put together while Zooming away all day every day from my home office. Rounding up a few of my favorite romantic dresses of the moment–all at different price points. 

5 MINIMAL GOLD ACCESSORIES I’M LOVING

The silver lining of this quarantine period has been all of the extra time I’m getting to spend with both of my girls.  I love watching their relationship grow stronger by the day and watching them start to interact and play with one another is the sweetest.  But since Naiya still struggles with sharing me, I do my best to carve out one-on-one Naiya time every day because I know how important it is to her.  

SNAPSHOTS FROM JAPAN: BAMBOO FOREST

One year ago, Phil and I were on our babymoon in Japan. What a difference a year makes! Now, we’re dreaming of a day when we’ll be able to safely leave our homes, let alone travel. After all, COVID-19 has hit us all like a ton of bricks. Since I’ve been dreaming of traveling  a lot recently, sharing some more unpublished photos with you today which we snapped in Kyoto’s beautiful Bamboo Forest (I recently shared more Japan shots here).

WHY I STOPPED GROCERY SHOPPING

I don’t know about you but I absolutely dread grocery shopping.  As a full-time working mom, I’m often racking my brain to figure out exactly when other moms find the time to shop, learn recipes and cook.  None of these things are my forte but surely, these moms must have some sort of secret!  Now that I have an almost one-and-a-half year old, I know it’s time for me to get this grocery shopping thing together (it took me long enough)! Thankfully, I think I’ve finally found a service to help me that I can’t get enough of.  Excited to share more about this with you today because fellow mamas who can’t stand grocery shopping: hopefully this will have you covered too.
