    How to Make Solé Water for Health and Wellness

    A little back story for you: after I had Grayson, I had some intense postpartum anxiety until I learned how to make sole water and all of its health benefits for balancing hormones and adrenal glands. Also because I was a tired mom, I went back to drinking coffee each morning and that’s where it all went downhill. I started to notice that my daily coffee made my anxiety so much worse and my stress level went through the roof (both physical and emotional stress). So I had to make a change! I still needed that extra little boost of energy because HELLO MOM LIFE and my sole water in…

    How to Organize Clothes for a Picky Toddler

    We have officially entered the 3 going on 13 stage of toddler-hood and this little girl absolutely loves clothes! She loves shopping for them, picking them out, making outfits, changing outfits, re-changing outfits, and of course dressing like a princess. What she really wants is real make up and nail polish, but I said no on those, so we compromised on always letting her pick out her own clothes. This only became a problem when she started coming down the stairs in absolutely insane outfits that she knew didn’t match, but she wasn’t sure why they didn’t go together. So we made a plan! And it has really been working…

    Grayson’s nursery is one of my favorite rooms in the whole house, so I’m surprised that it took me this long to write about it! It’s so peaceful and calming. I looked at lots of baby boy nursery inspiration and ideas. When I didn’t find anything I really loved, I knew I had to create a boho nursery with safari details so I could inspire others! I love the green accent wall and the black and white boho vibes, all the plants (even if they are fake haha), everything about it screams boho safari to me. I knew I wanted to do something with a kind of adventure boho vibe,…

    Breastfeeding Tips: Tips for New Moms

    As a new mom, breastfeeding tips is one of the things that I think is massively lacking. I get texts from so many new moms asking me “what if baby isn’t latching”, “how do I know if baby is getting enough”, “why is baby eating constantly?” Breastfeeding Tips for the First Week On day one, baby is extremely sleepy. Yes, they’ll be sleepy for two weeks or even two months after being born, but that first day after birth is extra sleepy. Birth is exhausting for them too. Don’t expect baby to eat too much on the first day, but you should try to get baby latched as often as…
