12 TODDLER BOOKS WE CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT

One of my first loves was for children’s books. As a kid, I vividly remember looking forward to bedtime every night because I’d get to listen to my parents narrate my favorite stories (in all the voices!). In doing so, they helped to instill in me a lifelong love for reading, writing and learning. Naturally, I’ve been trying to inspire Naiya and Sadie in a similar way.  

TULA: CLEAN SKINCARE REVIEW

I’m just over 7-months prego but I’ve officially surpassed the size I was when Naiya was born. It’s hard to believe I have over two months to go! Either I’m carrying a ten pounder in here or my body has decided to pop to the max for baby #2. Getting dressed these days feels like a total body workout–let alone putting on any makeup. To save myself the hassle of wearing makeup (especially in this crazy summer heat!), I’ve turned to some natural skincare products that have helped me to feel confident going bare-faced. Sharing one of my favorites today, how I’ve been using it and where you can snag it. Scroll down for a special discount code that you can use at checkout too! 

IN THE HOME

Happy Monday, Everyone! Today’s post is all about the decor starting to pop up in our apartment.  Phil and I moved into our LA apartment back in June but it’s taken all of these months to make our house really feel like a home (and we’re still getting there!).  Over the past few weeks, we’ve been having a lot of fun decorating with colorful pillows, photos and creative frames.
