Kopari Event | Something Navy Dress
It’s that time of year – especially where we live – where you wake up and it’s chilly so dress for that, and then by afternoon you are SWEATING! I have a couple pieces of advice for this – wear GOOD deodorant and pieces that are transitional!

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…

How I got my Body Back After Twins…for the Most Part ;)

L*Space Yellow Swimsuit | The Shop Laguna | Palms to Pines
Ok guys, you asked and I’m answering. Here’s how I’ve (almost) got my body “back” after having twins. Let me start by saying that I’m NOT an expert. I’m actually notoriously horrible at sticking to anything, have way too many weaknesses, and way too little will power. But I do think I’ve gotten in to my own little groove that’s worked for me, so I don’t mind sharing it with you on here. I also…

The Big Fix

Dr. Scott Harris | Dental Before and After | Impacted Tooth, Receding Gums
So I think everyone has that one thing they’re the most self conscious about, right? For me, it’s always been this one stupid tooth! I literally think about it every time I talk to someone, and it’s the first thing I notice in photos of myself. At work, I would find myself trying not to smile unless my head was turned to cover that tooth! This Freakin’ Tooth… I’ll spare you the long story, but…

New Year’s Thoughts and a few Easy Resolutions

Stillwater Morning Robe | How to wear a duster
I’ve never been more excited or more anxious to start a new year! The last 4 months of 2017 was spent in the hospital with the babies, and then when we brought them home the holidays were in full swing. Blake’s been either off of work or working from home since they came home. We’ve fallen into a routine together and managed, but this week Blake goes back to work and all bets are off.…

Preventing Leg Cramps During Pregnancy

Last week, I decided to start asking you guys for advice. Considering I’ve never taken a pregnancy this far until now, I’ll be the first to admit that I am not yet an expert ;).

Fighting Stretch Marks During Pregnancy | My Plan of Attack

Preventing Stretch Marks, Even if it’s Hereditary I’ve always been afraid of stretch marks, so you can imagine the increase in my fear when I found out I was having twins ;). Both my Mom and sister have always told me how bad their stretch marks were, so if it’s true that stretch marks are hereditary I’m a goner. However, I decided that even if I’m doomed to get some stretch marks, it’s still worth trying…
