February Favorites 2014

Some things I've been loving in February! Enjoy!

Think Before You Speak..or Type

I feel like we live in a totally different, uncharted world… this new age of Facebook, instagram, youtube, snap chat, keek, twitter… 
It's like every part of us is out there for the world to see…and with that comes opinions and comments that we normally would never encounter in "real life".

When you don't have face to face contact, its so easy to freely express your opinions, thoughts and criticism.. with no filter or consideration of the feelings of the recipient.

Sweet Bake Shop


I already get excited when I see a delivery person stop in front of my house… but when I open the box to find goodies like this, how can a girl have a bad day?!

I discovered the Sweet Bake Shop on Instagram one day and literally scrolled through and liked every single picture. Everything is the epitome of pretty, girly, perfection. Seriously if you are on instagram, follow… It just makes you feel pretty and girly inside!

Then I found out that they were located in Vancouver, B.C…. my hometown, YEAH GIRL!!! 
THEN I noticed that friends I knew had posted her baked goods. what a small world…

Then, my day got even better. 
These showed up at my door. 
Tessa girl, You are amazing. 
Not only are the goodies she bakes pretty, but the girl herself is gorgeous…and obviously has a  beautiful heart. ( I know postage ain't cheap!)

So if you are in the Vancouver area… or any area for that matter check out her Instagram and her online shop for orders. She is opening a storefront soon too!!

Thank you Tessa!! I had to take pictures quick before they got gobbled up!!

Milani Eye & Brow HIghlighter Pencils

I am loving these highlighter pencils! they come in 3 colors and are super creamy! Click the video above to watch my review :)

February Fabkids Picks!

Right now it's buy one outfit get one free!
Normally $29.95 a month for a 2 piece outfit. 

Ok seriously, how cute is this little outfit? I love the little watermelon-esque top and the skinny jeans. they have little zippers on the side too, just the little things make them that much cuter!

My stud in his fabkids outfit. He's so funny, I think it makes him feel special to get an outfit in the mail that's just for him. He gets all shy when I want to take his picture. 

Now my little one got an outfit as well, but I must have ordered the wrong size because it was HUGE. she cried and cried because she wanted to wear the pineapple shirt so bad… so she ended up wearing it as a dress/nighty to bed. 

Love all these spring outfits they are coming out with. the colors just make me so happy!

Happy Valentine's Day?

I feel like Valentine's Day is one of those days that is either super fantastic and wonderful or super sad and annoying. Even if you are in a relationship…. the guy's gotta hit a home run, or you're left feeling annoying, mad, hurt, sad….and then for the single's… well, it's just another reminder that you are single. I hear ya, I've been there… so I thought I'd share some (hopefully) helpful tips for those who are waiting for "The One". 

Love you all!! Remember, you have to love yourself FIRST. So go treat yourself to something nice today, you deserve it! xoxo

Love is a Choice, Not just a Feeling

What happens when you don't feel "in love" anymore?
how do people stay in love?
does love really last?

Love is such a huge and vast word with different depths and meaning. 
I believe that love is a choice, not just a feeling.

I'm not a perfect mom either, and that's ok

I think ever mom has moments when they feel overwhelmed, over tired, short tempered…and all of a sudden its dinner time and there is nothing to eat! It's so easy to think that other moms have it all under control and somehow we missed the memo on how to keep it together. 

I just wanted to encourage you and tell you that no mom is perfect, we try and we strive, but we all have our moments… you are not alone :)

February Wantable Box

Wantable is a $36/month subscription box where you can choose between Beauty, Accessories, and Intimates. All products are full size.

Wantable has totally upped their game…
They changed the white box to a black box and now the jewelry comes in these gorgeous velvet pouches… and then… what inside, blew my mind!


How gorgeous are these pieces?!?! I could not believe it when I opened them.

Phone Case of the Month

a new phone case every month! (cancel any time no questions asked)
$10/month free shipping in the U.S.
$5 shipping international

High quality phone cases for iPhone and Samsung Galaxy

I am a total phone case fanatic. I usually order them on amazon. half of them I like, half of them I don't. I love this marvel idea of getting a new phone case every month.
I love the velvety feel and the slim body of the case!

*phone case provided for review. all opinions are my own and honest as usual!

The Perfect Hardboiled Egg

Seems so easy right? 
I use to just put my eggs in boiling water, and then wait… when I thought they were done, I'd wait a little longer just to make sure. 
I always had the grey ring around my yolk and never thought anything of it until I was watching some cooking show and noticed they never had the grey ring around the yolk.
so, to make the perfect (and pretty) hardboiled egg:

lower egg into boiling water
wait 5 minutes
turn off heat
let egg sit in hot water for 10-15 minutes

Perfect hard boiled egg. It IS easy!

What school is best for my kids?

I remember when we first deciding to have kids wondering what kind of school we would send our kids to. My husband and I had totally different schooling backgrounds, and well… times have changed. 
We were nervous about sending our kids to public school, couldn't afford private school..and didn't want our kids to be un socialized home schooled kids. 

I did a guest spot for the 411 mommas on our experience with all 3 (so far). 
Hopefully you find this helpful!

Korean Cosmetics Haul

I love me some Korean products! 
I recently ordered some korean products and a friend of mine proud me some goodies from Korea too, so I thought I would share. 
Since filming this video I've been using the Wonder Pore and Cleansing Oil..and they are AMAZING! I cannot believe how clean the cleansing oil makes my face. Even the following morning there is no trace of raccoon eyes or remnance of my waterproof mascara. love it!

All Natural Anti-Aging Routine | Mad Hippie

My endless search for a good anti aging skincare routine continues. I have been getting a lot more age spots and have been noticing more fine lines, especially around my eyes. I love that this line is all natural and safe for me to use while nursing my baby. I found that many of the dark spot correctors had such strong chemicals that they are not suggested for use while pregnant or breastfeeding. 

I am currently using the Vitamin C serum, Face cream and eye cream.
