MINNOW: FAMILY BATHING SUIT INSPO

When it comes to cute, classic swimsuits that are BEAUTIFULLY made, our family is big fans of Minnow. We love that a number of styles are designed with long sleeves to help protect our little ones from the sun while still staying nice and cool. This week, Minnow came out with a brand new summer line featuring a fresh take on Americana. From Nantucket red and classic navy to sun-kissed blue and crisp white–the line is so cute!

HOW TO REPLACE YOUR TODDLER’S SCREEN TIME

Do you feel like your toddler is glued to a screen every time you turn around? Do you dread the inevitable battle royale that ensues whenever it’s time to put that gadget away? Today, I’m teaming up with Kinderkind, one of our favorite children’s clothing lines, to share advice for how to reduce screen time easily and effectively (more on their blog too here). I’ve been trying the following methods out with Sadie and Naiya and they’ve been helping us out big time! Featuring some of our favorite outfits by Kinderkind too. Scroll down to the bottom of this post for outfit details and a discount code for you to use at checkout. Enjoy!

A LOOK BACK: 2020

Our fam is walking out of 2020 with the same determination that Sadie has in this photo. The biggest mazels to everyone for making it to the end of this unbelievable year. It stopped us all in our tracks and took our breath away. It taught us to slow down and savor the little things. It was scary, uncertain, uncomfortable and transformative. Millions of people suffered–both outwardly and silently.  And perhaps the craziest part?  The entire world was in it together. 2020 reminded us that our health is truly everything. Somehow, despite all of its countless hardships, 2020 flew by. 

9.5 MONTHS WITH SADIE

How is quarantine time moving by even quicker than normal time? I keep blinking and Sadie and Naiya keep growing another month older and I can’t keep up.  Still working so hard to find the perfect balance between working remotely from home and mom-ing without any breathers and it’s definitely not easy! I’m sure all mamas are feeling the grind this year of all years so I know we’re all in it together. 

TUTU + SCARF DRESS

LA blogger, RELish's daughter, Naiya, wears a PatPat tutu

Writing from Reno-Tahoe where I’m spending a couple days away with my hubby. It’s only my second time away from Naiya since she was born and it was so hard to leave her! Phil convinced me to come with him on this business trip so that we could get a little time away together.  In the end, I’m so happy he convinced me!  Missing Naiya like crazy but it’s so refreshing to have a quick breather outside of Los Angeles (and to practice not being a #stagefiveclinger. We snapped these photos right before we left of Naiya in the cutest tutu dress and me in one of my favorite scarf dresses. Sharing our outfit details below as well as a few similar looks I’m eyeing at all different price points.
