What do I eat in a day you ask?? Well I love to show you! It’s fun now to show you what my girls eat too. Sometimes they eat all day long and then they will have times where they aren’t interested at all. Our days vary all the time but here is a pretty typical day for us! Video at the bottom!Read More
This weekend felt so full of events! We are trying to get the girls out of the house more. It's so easy to just stay at home with them, but I know they need to be OUT (and so do I)! They are getting to be such a fun age and they truly entertain us all day long. I love seeing them interact more and more every day and become two little besties. Sometimes they are in their own world and just wander around the house together with random objects. It's my most favorite thing ever.Read More
I hope you all had a great week. I am going to start doing little updates here are there about what's going on in my life. From things the girls are loving, to what tv shows I'm watching, I'll share what's new!Read More
Happy Holidays! Can I say that yet? Because other than our tree, I've put up all our Christmas decor over here! I got this POPSUGAR X Neiman Marcus box in the mail yesterday and was gushing over it for a loooong time.Read More
Today I wanted to talk skin! I am a huge skincare lover. I am always on the hunt for the absolute best products. I only share things I have been using when my skin is at it's best, and lucky for me that time is now! Korres is a brand I've been using for a long time, so when they launched a new eye serum and reformulated a few products from their Black Pine line, I knew I had to try them!Read More
Hey guys! Today I wanted to talk about introducing foods to babies. My twins are now 4 months old and I just started thinking about my plan for feeding them. It's crazy to think that time is almost here! As of now I am still breastfeeding and giving them formula before bed and sometimes one other time during the day. I also am pumping about 2-3 times a day to up my supply and get some milk for them to have on hand if they won't nurse. For this post I have partnered up with Stonyfield Organic to show you some more options when it comes to healthy baby food. Their YoBaby line, which is the #1 pediatrician recommended yogurt for ages 6 months-2 years, recently added a new strain of probiotics, BB-12. Probiotics are super beneficial for your gut. And your gut health is the foundation for overall good health.
It's recommended that you wait to feed solids to your baby until they are 4-6 months old. You also want them to be able to sit upright and hold their head up. Our girls have good head control but still can't sit up so I'm going to wait until they can. I am starting to notice they get easily distracted when nursing these days. If I start to talk to someone, they will turn their head toward me and start to smile and coo. It's pretty cute, but can sometimes be frustrating when I want them to eat!
It is a bit overwhelming figuring out what to feed your babies once they are done breastfeeding yet to young for cow's milk. But dairy is packed with nutrients like calcium and vitamin D which are both super nutritious for growing babies. The nice thing is, even if your babies are still breastfeeding, they can have yogurt at 6 months. These yogurts are a great option and made with organic whole milk.
So what other foods am I going to introduce to our girls first? Egg yolks are at the top of my list. They are packed with beneficial fatty acids and provide cholesterol needed for the optimal development of the nervous system. I'd love to know your thoughts on baby cereal. I've heard to pour some breast milk into it to help your baby get used to it. I'm just wondering if it has many nutritional benefits. I'd also like to introduce avocado around six months. They are packed with essential fats, vitamins and minerals. To prepare, I'm going to mush it up and add breast milk to thin it out. The other two things I'd like to introduce early on are bananas and sweet potatoes (both packed with vitamin A, C and folate).
There are so many things to consider when being a mom to two littles, but I just try to trust my instincts and do my best! I hope you all enjoy the rest of your day and thanks so much for stopping by my blog!

Hey guys! I am so excited to share our completed guest bathroom with you. It was a long process because we completely re-did the entire thing since it was in bad shape to begin with. Even though it took a while I would definitely do it again! I am so happy with how everything turned out. It's exactly as I envisioned it.Read More
Hey guys! Today I wanted to share with you some ways to style neutral shoes. I just got a few pairs of shoes from Aerosoles that are perfect for spring. Neutral shoes are a great thing to add to your wardrobe because of how versatile they are. Especially with twins, styling clothes quickly is very important and pairing clothes with neutral toned shoes takes out a lot of the guess work.
First I am style these rose gold flats with black leggings. I wanted to show you how easy it is to change the look of an outfit by swapping out a few pieces.
^^I love how soft and feminine this look is. Rose gold and florals look so pretty together and are perfect for the spring. And keeping your layers lightweight keep the look fresh.^^
^^Here I chose a slightly longer trench, but kept it in a sheer fabric. The light pink color perfectly complements the rose gold flats. For my top, I have on a striped blouse in a similar fabric to keep the outfit cohesive.^^
^^One of my favorite ways to wear leggings is with a denim top. This one works great buttoned or un-buttoned. Denim is a great option for spring attire. It goes with pretty much everything, and I especially love it with a metallic! To make the look a little sporty, I have my backpack diaper bag which is both cute and functional!^^
Next, I am styling a pair of cork heels that have gold veining throughout them.
^^I love stripes for spring, especially navy and white!^^
^^I like to mix and match a lot of different types of neutrals. Denim jeans mixed paired with a camel bag and white top give an effortless vibe.^^
Life has changed quite a bit recently. With the birth of our twin girls, my days are now consumed with feeding, burping and changing on repeat. But I wouldn’t have it any other way! Because of my lack of free time, I have had to alter my beauty routine quite a bit.Read More
