I've been working hard to purge this summer. Cleaning out closets, play spaces and everything in between. Now that my closet has been significantly paired down, I'm in search of a few fresh pieces for the season ahead. I'm also trying hard to keep my spending down, so I'm hoping to buy a few key pieces this holiday weekend to take advantage of some great sales. Here's some items that I'm eyeing:
With school starting here tomorrow and the calendar full of the boys soccer and football games, summer is unofficially over. Things have been quiet over here as we've been busy making the most of our summer days - boating, island visits, beach outings, movie days and time with friends. There's also been plenty of refereeing my wild boys, and getting back into a routine will be welcome in some ways, but it's always hard to see these summer days go.
I've been meaning to share some of these products for a while now, and you've probably seen some of them over on Instagram, but thought I'd round up some of my favorites from this summer. There's still plenty of time to enjoy these - some you'll be using year round like my new favorite (and work-out tested) deodorant. Take a look and let me know some of your favorites.
Congrats to our winner - Mellisa S.
Being a mom is the most amazing and rewarding journey. I think we'd all agree it's worth every tough and tired moment, but motherhood no matter how you cut it can be exhausting.
Life is as crazy as ever for us, but now that we're beyond the baby stage I feel like I have a little bit more flexibility to focus on myself. Whether that means getting a workout in or a dinner out with girlfriends, it feels good to recharge and I know it helps me be the best version of myself including being a better mom to my kiddos. Whatever stage you're at in your journey of motherhood, I strongly encourage you to take time to care for yourself. During this phase it might be a cup of tea and a few pages of a book after your little ones go to sleep, but do what you can when you can to feel your best.
