Fact: I’m not an interior designer/decorator. I often get compliments on my home’s decor and am proud of our space but the process to get to that point is always a long, stressful one. I’m very visual and very indecisive. I’m notorious for buying a ton of options, seeing them in the space at hand, and then taking it all back. That said, I am so excited about this room for a couple different reasons. The first reason is that it has easily become the prettiest spot in our home and my girls’ favorite, which totally works out for me since it’s upstairs and they can leave me alone play up there quietly. The second reason is because 90% of its contents were ordered online, which means I wasn’t able to see it all in the space before committing to it. Y’all, that means that I had a vision and it came out almost-exactly how I had planned! Seriously a milestone for me. Because this dream playroom makeover was a total overhaul and I want to show you all of it, I decided to break the reveal into two parts. Today I’m sharing Part 1.

It’s summer, which means I spend my days trying to walk the delicate balance between keeping my cool inside in the AC and encouraging my girls to seize the day and enjoy the great outdoors. I don’t know about you but I overheat pretty easily. Luckily, so does my oldest; she’s usually the one to tell me she’s hot and it’s time to go inside (score!). Thankfully, I’ve discovered the fun #PerrierFlavors to help keep me cool and refreshed this summer. I know some moms feel like they need to constantly entertain their kids or keep them on-the-go all summer but not this mom. Here are some ways we enjoy summer without leaving home.

Have I mentioned how much I’m loving kimonos right now? Well in case you haven’t heard, I’m absolutely loving them. Anything that makes me feel easy, breezy, comfy, and cute is a winner is my book. Enter, Ruby Claire Boutique. I found this super cute shop on Instagram and I fell in love right away because they have so many options for many different styles. There’s seriously something for everyone on there. Of course, I wanted one of everything but, after much deliberation, decided to go with today’s look: the Magnolia Kimono in red paired with some denim shorts, a  basic white top and the Ruby Flat in Champagne. Remember, mom style doesn’t have to be frumpy!

Raise your hand if you have no idea how your toddler survives off so few calories per day like mine. I mean, the kid doesn’t eat. It’s amazing and I kind of wish I could pull her habits off myself. In my 4.5 years of being a mom, though, I’ve picked up a few lessons on getting my kids to eat. One of my tricks would probably be considered bad parenting but sometimes you do what you have to do to make it work, am I right? Here are 4 ways I make sure my toddler gets nutrition.

Confession: I have an addiction to jewelry. Sure, I love 18k gold and diamonds but I kind of have jewelry A.D.D. so I try to avoid buying expensive pieces and opt for stylish, cost effective options instead. I love being able to spruce up any outfit – even a plain white tee –  with just a cute necklace and/or set of earrings. Jewelry has a way of completely changing the vibe of an outfit. That’s probably why I love it so much; it’s like an instant wardrobe upgrade. I recently discovered Rocksbox which is perfect for jewlery-aholics like me.
