How to: Create An OK Valentines Basket

Christmas is over and its time to focus on the next holiday up- Valentines day.  Side note- I should really take my tree down. As a kid, Valentines Day was my favorite holiday. My mom threw me these awesome after school tea parties. There would be a spread of cutesy decorated sweets and kiddy champagne in my teapot…. I felt like a celebrity. The cherry on top was always the Valentines basket. I knew the minute I heard “its two girls” at my 20 week ultrasound that this was a tradition I had to keep alive. Plus you gotta soak […]

Momstyle: Poshmark review

So shopping has always been a huge part of my life because I’m a shallow person. Also because I model my life after Cher from clueless… who doesn’t want to be Cher from clueless?! Just me? oh ok… moving on.. Shopping after having kids has become more of a guilt trip than a pleasure cruise. I know I’m not alone on that. In a past life, I never batted an eyelash at four figure handbags…I’m gross and I know this isn’t endearing at all. I regularly gave away items from my closet with tags still attached (see? I’m not so […]

Moms with Girls, Beware.

I’m sure you’ve heard of the “pink tax”, where women pay more than men for certain services and products. Particularly annoying examples are dry cleaning and razor blades. Sure, you can buy men’s razors instead, (and I do), but this doesn’t exactly correct the problem.  However I didn’t realize how early the pink tax actually starts, until I was perusing Amazon for sippy cups earlier this evening. I present to you, The Baby Pink Tax.

Homemade Marshmallows

Homemade marshmallows are the easiest and most affordable edible gift.  Package them in a mug with hot cocoa mix, and you’ve got the perfect (i.e. cheap) gift for someone that you don’t care enough about to give a real present. (Totally kidding, if you have received this from me and are reading this right now.)

Felt Flower Headband DIY

So I wasn’t sure about posting this headband, because it was so big, that it bordered looking a little bit like a weird peony hat.  I think it would work better on an older child, or maybe grouped with a couple smaller flowers, but it was still pretty cute.

WTF: What the Facebook?

Facebook is a weird place… Facebook marketplace is an even weirder place. My favorite nap time hobby, besides staring a wall in silence, is texting weird things I find on marketplace to Danielle. However some of these absolute gems need to be shared… So today’s installment of WTF is all about gifting. After all, it is December. Why go to a nice clean store when you can buy creepy old junk from strangers in a McDonald’s parking lot?!? “Trust me, its looks EXACTLY like the drawing on this small ripped piece of paper”

A Non-Pinterest Worthy Birthday

Well I now can say I have two years under my belt as a twin mom. Honestly, the first year was the hardest year of my life. Real talk. Strangers approached me all the time and the comment I heard over and over again was something to the effect of “Enjoy this time, they grown up fast”. PSA: Do NOT say this to parents of twins. We know they grow fast, and we are HOPING TO GOD they will grow faster out of whatever stage is currently causing us extreme life turbulence. Most nights I was lucky if I got […]

PSA: Holiday Cards (What Not to Do)

I am always sleep-deprived.  I don’t know why, because my daughter is an excellent sleeper.  I could do that whole “sleep when the baby sleeps” thing, but instead I like to spend that time shopping online at Zara. (AKA putting things in my cart and then removing them because I’m not cool enough to wear them or I’m too poor to buy them.)  Anyways, lack of sleep is my excuse for this years holiday card.
