Six years ago, my now-husband bought me a gift certificate to a spa. After being pampered for the day I was hooked. Every year for my birthday I ask for a gift certificate to my local spa. I look forward to my spa day every year.
Since I enjoy it so much, I decided every month I would have a Spa Day at Home, where I pamper myself and relive those tranquil days at the spa. In this post, you will find out what you need to create your own Spa day. You will also find my Spa Day at Home Schedule!
When I was pregnant with my daughter in 2016 I planned to breastfeed exclusively for the first six months. Unfortunately, things did not go as planned and I made the choice to formula feed shortly after her birth. I want all mothers to know that ultimately, it doesn’t matter if you breastfeed or formula feed. All that matters is that you love your child and you are providing all you can for them.
Breastfeeding comes with a lot of added benefits, so if you are able to breastfeed I would highly suggest it. I do not have much experience or knowledge with breastfeeding so when my friends at Breastfeedo.com said they would be interested in writing a guest post for me, I was so excited. My readers will now have access to information about the relationship between Breastfeeding and Relaxation. Enjoy!
My baby girl is officially One year old!! It feels like yesterday we were in the hospital waiting to take her home. Over the past year, my daughter’s personality has emerged and she is such a wild child. She is constantly in motion. It is very rare that she allows me to sit with her and read her a book. When I was thinking about birthday party ideas it seemed obvious that it had to be something WILD.
Norah is WILD and she is turning ONE and so the theme was born: WILD ONE!
If you are a new mom it’s probably safe to say that you are struggling to figure out how to survive your new lifestyle. Your baby is out of the newborn phase but you still can’t seem to take back control of your life. There are so many joys that come with being a mom but it seems like you will never be able to see the bottom of your sink again, not to mention the laundry room floor. Fast food & take out become a recurring meal option but you soon figure out that you can’t lose the baby weight and your bank account is diminishing before your eyes.
Well Mommas, if you adopt these 5 habits you can take back control of your life. At first, it may be tough but I promise you that if you stay the course it will be worth it in the long run and before you know it you will have your life back.
A Letter to My Husband on his First Father’s Day
Traveling is a lot of fun but it can also turn into a nightmare if you don’t plan properly. The last thing you want is to spend a boatload of money on a babysitter, pet sitter and tickets to a show only to have the worst vacation ever because the hotel you stayed at was like something out of American Horror Story. To make sure you have a wonderful travel experience I have created this list so that you can make the most out of your vacation.
These are projects my husband and I have completed in the past.
It seems like every day I see couples posting about their creative Gender Reveals. Everyone wants to have one when they are expecting. From cakes to piñatas there are so many unique ways to share the gender of your baby with your friends and family. My husband and I were one of these couples.
I compiled this list of baby products because I want everyone to know how much they made a difference for my family. My husband & I almost didn’t purchase them because they were considered non-essential. Well, I believe they ARE essential and I do not know how I would have survived being a first time Mom without these items! You will find them useful too!
When you have anxiety you can become overwhelmed with dread and you forget to enjoy the world. Doing these 6 things daily can give you a sense of accomplishment that just might improve your outlook on today & tomorrow.
