Valentine’s for Infants | Free Printable


*This post contains affiliate links*

Hello, hello!

Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching and I got a letter from my son’s daycare with a list of names stating they will be having a Valentine’s Day celebration. ME, a first time mom, was a little confused. “What am I supposed to send for infants? They can’t eat candy!” So I racked my brain to come up with something that the babies in his class can actually use and enjoy. I also wanted something affordable and easy because let’s face it… our time and money is precious.

Hello! Happy February!

I hope everyone had a wonderful start to the new year! It really is hard to believe that it’s 2016! You would think after 26 years of life I would be used to how quickly the years pass. Ah well… the past year was a whirlwind! I welcomed my first child!!! It has been one of the most fulfilling, exhausting, loving, blissful years of my life!

Anyway… I wanted to share my January favorites. Last month was full of super moisturizing and hydrating products in my home since it finally got cold around here and my skin was suffering. Let’s get right into it!

3 Easy Grab and Go Breakfasts

Hello there!

I know most of us tend to have pretty crazy mornings, so I wanted to put together some of my favorite healthy breakfasts that are easy and can be prepped the night before. Making meals the night before seriously makes such a difference in morning routines! I work a full time job that I have to be at by 7:00 AM and with an 8 month old that I have to get ready as well, I don’t have much time to think. Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day – I absolutely can’t miss it! For this reason, I like to prepare my breakfasts the night before so they are ready for me to grab and go in the morning. It’s one less thing to worry about.

Alright.. let’s get to the breakfasts!

Lorac Alter Ego Lipsticks

Good morning beautiful friends!

This morning as I have some time to myself (while baby bear is napping) I find that my mind keeps wandering to makeup. Since its usually filled with mommy thoughts, its so refreshing to focus on something for me. I think its important to find a good balance.

I’ve recently purchased the Alter Ego lipsticks from Lorac because I don’t own many lipsticks and am trying to be more adventurous with my makeup. All the lipsticks I’ve owned before are terrible quality. I usually just chose the cheapest of cheap because deep down I knew I wouldn’t use them. This time, I thought to myself that if I got good quality lipsticks then maybe I would be more encouraged to use them!
