2nd Birthday Brunch

My love for all things brunch knows no bounds. If it were up to me, I'd indulge in it daily. But since that isn't exactly in the cards (both for my waistline and my wallets sake), I'm just going to go big every once in a while. And what better reason to do so than on your birthday! With stuffed french toast, balloon place settings and individual parfaits! I have to say, sweet little Noelle is one very lucky lady.

DIY Halloween Costume: Cotton Candy

I lied. THIS is definitely my favorite Halloween costume. Ever. I actually challenge you to find one that is cuter because I'm 100% convinced that it doesn't exist. Even my now 5 month old, Thea Grace, thinks she looks pretty darn cute. Well, she did until she started eating the fabric batting and (bad) mom cracked up laughing instead of helping the poor girl.

DIY Halloween Costume: Pinata

This might be my favorite halloween costume. Ever. Probably because my funny little guy thought the costume was completely hilarious and couldn't stop laughing. But mostly because he looks like a real freaking pinata!! I am obsessed. Plus the fringe is laid onto standard clothes so there is no itchiness or frustration at all. Thanks to Ruthie...

DIY Halloween Costume: Jellyfish

Confession. I am one of those mothers who waits until the days before Halloween, then frantically flies around town trying to piece together whatever is left in my kids' sizes. Well, I should say I WAS that mother. Until we started crafting our own costumes a few years back and I realized that even the simplest ideas can be made entirely magical. Case in point? This year's jellyfish costume for my 6 year old.

Tamera Mowry Talks Mommyhood

When I was pregnant - and on bedrest - I used to stay up late with Tia and Tamera Mowry on their E! reality show. Aside from generally being adorable, I loved watching how they delicately balanced their own spunky personalities, their careers, their weddings and now babies. So when the LOVELY Tamera offered to give us an inside peak at her mom-spirations with...

Back to School in Style

So I've been out of university for a solid 8 years (omg!), but that doesn't change the fact that back to school season still excites me to no end. And though my dorm room days are over, I vividly remember the cold, sterile environment we were all faced with come September. But have no fear! With a few accessories (that won't break the bank), that dorm room, and those classes, are about to become a whole lot more bearable.
