You may remember that I recently had to forgo my cleaning lady as part of our new one-income journey. It didn’t take long for us to realize we needed a new vacuum; the one we previously had was a wedding gift and nearly 8 years old. Honestly, the first brand that came to mind was Dyson. I had heard such great things about the brand that I knew I wanted to give it a try. Although I don’t have any pets, I decided to try the Dyson Animal Ball 2 because my full head of hair sheds a lot and I have two [messy] daughters who take after their mama’s hair. What I wasn’t expecting, though, was how much I would be in love with a vacuum. Weird, right? I guess that’s what being an adult is: getting excited about a new vacuum and writing a heartfelt ode to it on the Internet.

Have I ever mentioned how much I am loving florals this year? Oh yeah, I have. But really, give me allllll the florals! I recently found Elle Belle Boutique on Instagram and found some of the cutest floral stuff, including today’s grey trapeze dress. The trapeze dress is amongst my favorite styles because they flow away from the body. If you’ve been following along with me for awhile, you know I avoid anything fitted at the waistline (because mom-gut) so trapezes, a-lines, empires, and swings are my jam. I don’t typically wear greys but when I saw this dress, with the cute key-hole and button detailing at the top, I knew I needed to make it mine. I paired with with some tan huarache-style block heels to dress it down a little bit but it could easily be a little more glammed up. All you need is a cute pair of earrings and you’re set.

Two nights ago, my youngest, last baby slept in her “big girl” bed for the first time. Not long before, she started demanding to sit at the kitchen table instead of in her high chair. My little PlaytexBaby isn’t such a baby anymore. She’s growing up. As much as I tried to keep her a “baby” as long as I could, time (like the thief it is) swept in and turned her into a little girl. I know I say that a lot. I’ve come to realize that I really struggle with the passing of time.

Spring has officially sprung in Atlanta and I couldn’t be more thrilled! Spring weather has paved the way for me to wear alllll the florals that I want! I’ve already mentioned that I’m loving the return of the bell sleeve but I have to say that I’m even more excited for the return of the bell-bottom (flare) jean! I love me some skinnies but there’s something about a good flare jean that gives me all the feels (especially a high-waisted one to hold in the mom-gut). The Mint Julep Boutique is one of my favorite online boutiques; they have so many different items to choose from and everything is ah-dorable! I partnered with The Mint Julep Boutique to show you my new favorite look. Y’all. I’m seriously obsessed with this top – florals plus bell sleeves plus cold shoulders? Yes, please! It’s tunic-length but I tucked it in for this look to show off my new favorite jeans. When paired with skinnies, I like to let it flow untucked.

There’s a lot of pressure to be productive during naptime these days, isn’t there? I remember seeing my mom do chores and whatnot while we we played; watching her at a young age taught me how to keep and manage a home. When I was old enough, she made us help. But these days, moms save up all of the “to-do’s” for the short time period during the day when the kids are napping. And on days when the kids don’t nap? Forget it. Day over. That’s so stressful! Well, I’ve teamed up with Trefiel to help you take the stress out of naptime and turn it into your own personal paradise. Let’s all take some time and relax. It will make us better moms.
