DIY Halloween Costume: A Hot Air Balloon

Can you even begin to handle the cute? Because my mind is kind of exploding at this very second. I've said before that our in house DIYer is absolutely brilliant, but she has completely outdone herself this time. Now all I need to do is figure out how to transform this into an adult version. Captured by Ruth Eileen , if you only ever look at one gallery here on SMP Living...

Double Date Idea: Apple Picking

Confession: I've actually partaken in an apple picking double date. And before you judge, I can honestly say that it was SO much fun. Admittedly, the boys were a little skeptical at first. But once we arrived I swear they enjoyed it more than my girlfriend and I. We've since vowed to make double date apple picking a yearly activity and I can't recommend it highly enough. Styled by Sarah The Architect and captured by ...

A Nautical 2nd Birthday Party from Fleur de Lis

In my next life, I want to be a kid's party planner. Seriously! They're always fun, whimsical and there's truly no end to the ideas you could churn out. Plus, so long as there's some form of cake in attendance, I guarantee your mini client will be more than satisfied. Inspired by Fleur de Lis Events' sweet nautical 2nd birthday (hello whale cupcake toppers!), we thought it'd be fun to pull together a miniature version...

Trash King Party from One Lovely Day

This next kids party? Obsessed. Seriously. I like to think that I'm of the creative mindset, but if I were given "garbage truck" as a party theme for my 4 year old child I honestly wouldn't even know where to begin. Luckily we have crazy talented folks like One Lovely Day who literally turned trash into treasure with this adorable affair. Captured by Kat Cvet, see...

Gift Guide: For Expecting Mothers

If your Facebook newsfeed is anything like mine, everyone and their mothers seems to either be getting married, or expecting a new little bundle of love. Not having kids of my own as of yet, I always find it difficult to come up with really wonderful gifts that I know my expecting friends will love and actually use. So, for all of you who happen to be in the same boat, I've taken the liberty to poll some of my favourite mama's and mama's-to-be to find out their must-haves when...

Is your heart prepared to handle the cute? Because it's about to get really sweet up in here. Tiny baby Max clearly couldn't wait to meet his incredible parents when he arrived two months prior to his expected birth date. Weighing in at just 3 pounds, this teeny bundle was dealt a tough start. With a loving family cheering him on, I'm excited to announce that sweet Max is growing and thriving and making huge strides. To see more from this heartwarming shoot, captured by none other than the...

A Gender Reveal Baby Shower from Simply Couture Weddings and Events

If you know me at all by now, you'll know that I never struggle to find a reason to celebrate. Half birthdays? Yep. Fresh highlights? You betcha. So, as you can imagine, it thrills me that the notion of "gender reveal parties" seems to be catching on. I truly can't imagine anything more exciting than gathering around with your loved ones in order to find out exactly what's in store in the coming months for you and your family. Designed by...

A Kite Themed First Birthday Party

Let's face it, a babies' first birthday party is more for the parents than it is for that sweet little nugget who likely won't remember the details. So it only makes sense to make the event parent friendly too! We're taking a cue from Threaded Together Vintage Rentals and  Julie Cate Photography  who've drummed up this sweet as can be kite themed...

Baby Theo’s Nursery from Esther Sun

It's been a few weeks since we shared our last nursery and I'm secretly glad that we're back with another. Because as far as I'm concerned, there isn't much that beats a case of the Mondays than tiny baby toes and adorable leg rolls. Esther Sun has captured sweet baby Theo and his beaming parents in his equally amazing nursery and I just can't get enough. And there's...

DIY Fringe Wands

This is quite possibly the simplest, most bang for your buck project we've ever done here on SMP. And the girls at Audrey's party LOVED them. A bamboo skewer, some hula skirts and a bit of green painters tape and voila. A magic wand that actually makes little girls feel like they are fairy princesses. A few of the girls actually begged me to take them home.

My boyfriend and I go through phases where we're on a dating roll, trying out new things on a constant basis, or repeating the same activities day in and day out. Ah, the dating rut - it happens!

Family Session + Get the Look

This is my definition of heaven. A chubby, cherub-y faced baby with eyes for days and the sweetest little lips you've ever seen. A perfectly styled backdrop from the genius that is Lindsey Zamora. And photographs that make your heart swell from Taylor Lord. It's actually so heavenly that it's working against my whole "I will NOT have a third child" mantra. Add to that a...
