Our Master Bedroom

May 24, 2018

  If you read my previous “Updating Your Apartment” blog then you know we added a great accent wall in our home with this Anewall Removeable Wallpaper. After adding that it became real easy to see, that our current furniture just wasn’t cutting it. Which to be honest the furniture we had were really just hand me downs from both of our previous places, nothing matching or even same color so…

Spring/Summer Toddler Fashion

May 11, 2018

Besides from diapers/wipes, I really believe the next most expensive purchase for our little ones are clothing. They grow so dang fast & before you know it everything you bought for them is already too small. And then of course the seasons change and whether it’s too small or not, they need clothes for the new weather. I’ve tried to get in a routine of buying staple pieces for Cora…

What’s in My Toddler Diaper Bag?

May 3, 2018

  There are quite a few differences between what I had in Cora’s diaper bag when she was a newborn-to-1yr , to now what I have in it as a 16month old toddler. And the reality is, it’s always changing. She falls in love with a new toy, type of snack, or starts a new phase where I need different items inside. But I thought it would be fun to…

DIY Smash Cake PhotoShoot

April 19, 2018

Before my 15month old daughter turned one, I started looking into photographers for her Smash Cake Photoshoot. I knew I wanted to have one because they are SOO cute! I also figured that pricing would be decent since it’s not like there’s outfit changes, multiple backgrounds, or that it would even take real long. Boy was I wrong!! In my town in KY, the average smash cake photoshoot cost $400.…

Updating Your Apartment

April 14, 2018

Renters, like myself, do not always have it easy when it comes to showcasing personality in our homes. We have rules and guidelines that must be followed, which do not allow our creative juices to really show. We recently moved into a new duplex and I knew I really wanted this to be my first home I took the time, energy, and unfortunately the money to make look really good.…

My Toddler’s Easter Basket

March 28, 2018

What’s in my toddlers Easter basket? First thing first, do not go crazy & spend ridiculous amounts of money on your little ones Easter basket. I say this because I have first hand experience. Last year for Cora’s first Easter when she was only a few months old, I spent WAY too much. And by way too much, I mean like $300 dollars. Yes, I was crazy! The thought of…

Balancing Work & Mom Life

March 20, 2018

As I mentioned in my first-ever blog post, I’m a full-time working mama. I work 8am-6pm 5 days a week, every week. It sucks lol!!! But hey that’s life! I wasn’t born a millionaire who can just stay home all the time & unfortunately we’re not in a situation where daddy works a great job so that I can be a stay-at-home mom. Maybe one day, but not right now.…

How to Gain Followers

March 9, 2018

If you’re on Instagram or really any social media platform to market something, you’re going to need a large following. Whether you have your own shop, brand repping, influencing, or whatever it is, you’re going to need to have followers. How to gain followers is a pretty secretive thing in the social media world. A lot of individuals do this in a “hush-hush” manner because they don’t want to be…

Transitioning to an Influencer

March 2, 2018

Alright, so now that you know how we even started our “career” on Instagram, let’s talk how in the heck we got to where we are now. So at this point we have built up a decent following & adding tons of content on our page (all brand rep photos basically). When I decided to transition my page to more of a lifestyle page, I believe I was around 6-7,000…

Becoming a Brand Rep

February 23, 2018

When Instagram became popular years ago, I really didn’t get it. I mean I understood the concept of it, but I really didn’t understand tagging, hashtags, or anything like that. I rarely used it and when I did, it was just to post a photo that I’d already added on FB. I had 200 friends or less. It really was nothing special to me and this is how it stayed,…
