Shelf-Stable/Frozen Health Foods

Amazing Grass | Healthy Foods that are Shelf Stable
It can be super hard to eat healthy during a quarantine, especially if you can’t get fresh produce and meat as often as you want to! In this post I’ll share some sneaky ways I get healthy foods in when I can’t get them totally fresh. Keep scrolling for some slightly random yet valuable ways to do this ;). GREENS Get your Greens in! We are long-time fans of Amazing Grass. I love that all…

Quarantine Stuff

Nail Problems A friend told me about this nail polish a couple of years ago, and I loved it when the babies were tiny and I wasn’t making it out much to get my gel manicures. Now that we are stuck at home, I’ve rediscovered my love for it and ordered some new colors! It’s a line by Essie that’s durable like gel but doesn’t require a UV light and comes off with regular nail…

Easy Skincare in Quarantine

I am fully aware that this is an annoying thing to start a blog post with, but….I genuinely do get SO many questions about skincare and I rarely share products. I’m so hesitant to do it because I feel like everyone’s skin is different and what works for me may not work for you. Also, I rarely change products/routine because I’m extremely skeptical – especially of what I feel like someone is just trying to…

Salon Row Grand Opening

Salon Row Salon Suites Long Beach
Salon Row is officially open! Tenants actually were able to move in and start taking clients October 1st! In case you missed it, I talked about Salon Row in this post. It’s the reason I’ve been MIA from the blog the last few months (which I plan to change now that the space is done/open!!) Basically, we partnered with friends Louisa Lawless and Ever Chapa to plan/design a salon suites concept. It’s a place where…

Tried and True – Favorite Hair Care Products

5 Products I Love | Hair, Skin, Natural Deodorant
I’m SUCH a creature of habit, and SO loyal to the products I love. I’ve said this before, but as a result it takes a lot for me to add products in to my lineup. Bad for business as a blogger, but I like to think it’s good for my hair/skin ;). I LOVE my current regime for my hair and realized I’ve never fully shared it – so here it is!    Washing Shampoo –…

There’s a Delivery Service for That

Favorite Grocery and Diaper Delivery Services
When we found out we were having twins, I immediately went to work planning. I wanted to be ready, and have systems in place when they came that would make life as easy as possible. Blake helped a lot with this, and we’ve had a few conversations lately where we pat ourselves on the back for the things we’ve done well in this area. One thing that’s been a HUGE help is organizing deliveries of…

Molekule Air Purifier Review (getting rid of Mold!)

I heard about the Molekule Air Purifier from a friend who worked on the production side of a commercial project with the company. After working on the project with them, he was completely sold on Molekule and got one for himself. He also (obviously) told us about it, and I was really intrigued. Our Mold Problem Fast forward a few months, and we discovered we had a massive mold problem caused by our AC unit…

5 Products I’ve Added to My Lineup

5 Products I Love | Hair, Skin, Natural Deodorant
I’m trying to be better about posting about my favorite products, so here goes some effort in that direction! These are a few things I’ve recently added to my product lineup. I’ve said this before, but I’m a HUGE skeptic and very resistant to change (not a good thing but I’m working on it!!) so it takes a lot of convincing for me to adopt new products. The products below all made the cut, and…

Making the Switch to a Natural Deodorant | Kopari Coconut Deodorant

Kopari Coconut Deodorant | Palms to Pines
Let me start this post by saying that I’m SUPER sensitive to smells, and VERY picky about my deodorant. I’m always paranoid of smelling weird – like, I have to go into hiding right after getting a spray tan. When I met Blake, he was pretty passionate about not using deodorant with aluminum. For those who are like me back then and don’t know, aluminum blocks your sweat glands, preventing you from sweating which you are…
