Dresses That Won’t Break the Bank This Season

  I don't know about you but I'm a sucker for dresses... and if it's under $50?! Omg, add to freakin' cart. Lol.

Hope you find one you like that comes in your size :) Happy Hump Day! ...

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. ...

Quick and Simple Italian Pasta Salad Recipe

Happy Thanksgiving guys!! I just wanted to share my go-to quick meal, my homemade Italian pasta salad. If you've been following me for a while, you know I hate cooking lol. My husband is the cook of the family so most of the time, I get meals prepped for me. Although, my husband works and I do have to feed myself and the kids haha. I always try to look for filling meals that don't take a lot of effort or time. Here's what you need: Tri-color rotini pasta (depends on how many servings you want to make) Italian dressing ( I love the Newman's Own one) Salame Banana Peppers (already ...

DIY Thanksgiving Goodie Bags

One thing I love about being a WAHM is the flexibility. Before kids, I truly enjoyed arts and crafts. Fun fact for ya, I used to make DIY greeting cards. I've always been a creative person so now that I have a little (a little is emphasized btw because kids... lol), I love making little goodie bags for the kids' teachers on holidays. On Halloween, I gave them candy filled gloves and they were a hit! I made them Thanksgiving themed goodie bags for Thanksgiving. They're simple but a bit tedious if I were to be honest with you. They're so cute though! If you're hosting Thanksgiving this year, ...

What’s in My Lily Jade Diaper Bag + Giveaway

So I get asked this question often... what do you pack for 3 kids in your diaper bag?! As the kids are getting older, it's become more of my stuff than theirs to be honest lol. This is what I store for the kids: Diapers and Pull-ups- obvi a must for Liam. Landon is pretty much potty trained (I'll share his potty training journey later this week) but I don't trust him enough yet to have not have a diaper on when we are out in public. It's either that I don't trust him or I don't have the patience to deal with any accidents when we're out haha. Wipes - I carry 2 kinds of wipes, ...

Hey Google, Tell Me a Frozen Story

Google gifted me the Nest Mini to help promote their Frozen stories and I couldn't have been more excited! I literally just have to say "Hey google, play a Frozen story" and the actual characters from the movie will start talking. You even get to choose which character tells the story. It's super cool and Scarlett is loving it! The great part is that there is so much more to the Nest Mini that just the amazing Frozen stories for the kids. Before I talk about the features, I just have to say that I love how compact it is! It's super small and comes in different colors so you can make ...
