Hello!

Welcome to my blog where I  document our adventures, parenting, lifestyle and food. Hope you enjoy!

mommy & baby loves

I hope everyone had a great weekend!  We spent our's taking scenic drives in the snow, celebrating our niece's 2nd birthday, seeing family from out of town & having a Starbucks morning coffee date ;)  I really enjoy the weekends because it means we get to hang out with daddy for two whole days!  On a side note, does anyone else think the weekends are feeling shorter & shorter?  Anyways, here is to a great rest of the week & also here are some things that both mommy & Ollie are loving at the moment!


mommy loves



1.  I absolutely LOVE my Clarisonic Mia!  I keep it in my shower that way I never forget to use it & I exfoliate about 3 times a week.  It is perfect for getting rid of dry skin & keeps my face looking refreshed!
2.  I just bought this Sonia Kashuk lipstick in Sunkissed from Target.  I usually like to test lipstick colors before I purchase them but the reviews were really good & I think it is such a pretty orange-pink color, which will be perfect for spring!
3.  Okay, so this is probably the easiest way to remove my make-up!  At the end of the day I am so tired & this takes less than 3 minutes to remove all my make-up!  I really like the Pond's Morning Refresh cleansing wipe because it has an exfoliating side & a smooth side which make it easier to remove everything.
4.  My sister-in-law bought me this super cute hoodie from Albion Fit.  It is their Signature Hoodie in Belize Blue & it is so comfy!  Perfect for a jog or lounging around at home.

1.  These aden + anais security blankets are by far my favorite for Oliver!  He loves snuggling with a blankie but we were so afraid of a big blanket in his crib.  The material is cotton muslim which makes this blanket breathable & so soft!  He loves sleeping with them. 
2.  We just discovered Peter Rabbit Organics & really like that they use only organic & ONLY the ingredients on the front!  Oliver's favorite blend is the Sweet Potato, Corn & Apple puree!
3.  The B. One Two Squeeze Blocks are so adorable & Oliver loves to play with them.  They are light enough for him to hold & you can even put them in water (which makes bath time so much fun)!
4.  I cannot get enough of the Honest Company!  We get the diaper bundle every month & recently I just purchased their butterfly baby teether.  This has been the best $10 I have spent on Oliver so far!  Everything about this teether is non-toxic, which is excellent in my book.  Plus, as of right now, this seems to be the only teether he will chew on!
