Walmart’s Best of Baby Event

Guess what guys?! My favorite one-stop-shop for all things baby, Walmart, is having their semi-annual Best of Baby event all month! There are a ton of offers online and rollbacks available in store. Think of it as a mini Black Friday! For all of September, they will be having different incentives each week which might include a gift card with purchase. What a great reason to shop right?! That's not all going on though, Walmart also has a Car Seat Trade In Event for 2 weeks. You can trade in your old car seat that's collecting dust in the garage (haha) for a $30 giftcard. They also are ...

Affordable Drugstore Beauty at CVS

Let's be real here, you can spend your whole paycheck on beauty products. Am I right?! One trip to the beauty counter at a department store can add up to a couple hundred bucks for just a few products. That's why I love to grab everything I need from CVS. I can stock up on affordable drugstore beauty products and not break the bank. On top of the affordable drugstore beauty products they offer, there are always a bunch of the best beauty deals going on too. I try a ton of beauty products every month and I know that there a bunch of drugstore beauty dupes. You get the same quality for a ...

Keeping the Kids Hydrated with Ello’s Water Bottles

Omg, can you believe it's already time to go "back to school?!" I mean... didn't summer just start?! Lol. Any way, Landon is starting preschool next week and Scarlett is taking more dance classes so it's very important for them to stay hydrated and drink plenty of water. I am loving Ello's new kids line that just recently launched at every mom's favorite place to shop at... Target! My favorite is the Emma Stainless Steel Water Bottle that keeps drinks cold for 14+ hours! Since we live in Temecula, where it gets sooo hot, insulated water bottles are a must! Not only are they super cute with ...

My New Life As a WAHM

So I always got asked these questions when I was working: "1. how do you all that you're doing and 2. how's life with 3 little kids?" My answers before were always 1. having balance and a supportive, hands-on husband and 2. life with 3 kids is crazy lol. Now as a WAHM (work at home mom), my answers stay the same but my everyday life is much different. It's been almost 2 weeks since I quit the job I loved to be at home with my kids and the first week was a true transition week... I binged watched Game of Thrones, slept around 3am, slept in til like 10am (thanks hubby), and fed the kids as much ...

It was one of the toughest decisions I had to make because I love where I worked, love what I did, love the people I worked with and love my ...
