Two Things This ‘Mombie’ Does Every Morning

Definition of Mombie: moms who are exhausted but stay up late any way because that's the only time they have kid free... TOO ACCURATE! I get most of my blogging and IG stuff at night after the kids sleep. Every time I wake up, I tell myself that I'll sleep earlier at night so I'm not so exhausted in the morning but NOPE. Luckily I have coffee to help with the exhaustion but looking exhausted is inevitable haha. To make me look more awake and ready for the day, I do these two things (after my whole morning skincare routine): I put No7 Instant Results Revitalizing Hydrogel Eye Masks under ...

Scarlett’s Num Noms Party at Pump it Up Murrieta

For her 5th birthday, Scarlett requested a Num Noms themed party which I found kinda odd cause she doesn't play with Num Noms lol. But hey, she's the birthday girl and I'm just here to make her dreams come true right? Then she said she specifically wants me to invite all her dance friends and since I'm friends with all the moms, I was all about it! Now that we had the theme down, it was time to decide on a location. We were going to throw a party at home but those are so draining and after the holidays, this mama was already drained! So I looked online with Scarlett and when she saw ...

Holiday Gift Guide for the Littles

    Ok parents, we got exactly 15 days until Christmas! That means we have 15 days to buy the kids' presents (from us and from Santa), wrap them up and hide them somewhere safe lol.

Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree

So I was totally one of those people who had their tree up and decorated it BEFORE Thanksgiving and I'm totally sorry not sorry! Haha. This is my favorite time of the year and if there's any way I can make it feel longer, I'll do it! My Christmas tree is from Best Choice Products and it's 6 ft. and pre-lit. When it arrived, I literally couldn't wait a couple hours until my husband came home from work so I did put it together myself haha. It was actually pretty easy! My favorite part about it is that it's pre-lit. That alone just saved me so much time. The lights are spread out so evenly and ...

Faves from Nordstrom’s Cyber Sale

  First of all, did you guys go shopping on Black Friday?! I ended up going with my sisters like laaater in the day, like 2pm. We went to Target and I got some things I needed that weren't on sale lol. The one thing I did get on sale was a turtleneck for $20 that was originally $30. Then my sisters wanted to go to Ulta since I was raving about their Black Friday sale. Since I already went the other day, I walked over to Nordstrom Rack and scored on some Halogen platform sneakers that were originally $90 and I got for $17! I didn't know that clearance items were an extra 50% off. ...
