Book Review: Girl, Wash Your Face

I am not a “reader” – if you give me the choice between sitting on the couch all day (re)watching old episodes of The Challenge, or picking up a new book, I’ll pick TV 9 times out of 10. I try to push myself to read more, but as a visual person, reading doesn’t always

DIY Nail Polish Remover

If you are like me, I get so frustrated when I realize that a product I have been using for YEARS (like how long have I been painting my nails for!?) could potentially be causing so much harm to my body! It’s just another reason to be thankful for our oils! We can take care

Chasing Busy

I want to talk about expectations for a minute. Expectations that are unspoken, or maybe sometimes spoken, that all humans must prove that they are struggling more than others. In addition to your expectation of suffering, you’re also expected to pretend that you LOVE it. That you live for the hustle. You thrive on little

Throwback Thursday: One Day at a Time

In a previous life I had a blog called The Corner Office. I wrote on it daily, then weekly, then…rarely. It was a chapter of my life that needed to be closed – shit, it was a BOOK that needed to be closed. But, in an effort to be honest with you about my story

Ditch and Switch

From washing my hair to putting on my make up, I use non-toxic products. It wasn’t a quick switch, but it was definitely a researched one! Because if you’re anything like me, you aren’t ditching your salon brand shampoo unless you have a good reason to! If you are also someone who needs to know

Overpacker’s Anonymous

Lately, it seems as though I’ve been traveling a lot, which is very out of the ordinary for this small town girl. And by small town, I mean, a girl that lives in the suburbs of Metro-Detroit where there’s a Tim Horton’s about every mile and a half. So, make whatever you will with that.

Dividing Attention :: Not Time

I was having a conversation with a good friend of mine the other day about seeing other Mom’s doing “all the things” — like literally they seem to have their hand in just about everything. I couldn’t wrap my head around it. I told her, “I just don’t get it. HOW do they do it?

The Power of Naps

I come from a long line of serial nappers. It’s somewhere in our genes. I love a good nap, if it’s done right. So, in preparation for your weekend, here’s my tried and true list of nap rules. Comfort is key. Find a comfy spot, it doesn’t have to be a bed, really, it shouldn’t be

Hormones Are Stupid.

Being the primary caregiver for another human has taught me a lot of things. I’ve been responsible for administering/managing medications, cleaning and changing PICC lines, administering IV medications, and a slew of other things. The absolute worst thing that it has taught me is that ignoring my own physical (and mental) health is easier than

Bring it on Summer Break

How many mamas are super stoked about summer break being around the corner? Who is ALSO excited for the all day-every day bickering, whining, complaining there is nothing to do, and the sudden need to eat every 3.5 seconds?! Yeah, me neither. BUT what I’m really excited for is to cross things off of our
