An Apple a Day

IMG_8460 IMG_8461 IMG_8462 IMG_8463 IMG_8464 IMG_8457 IMG_8458 IMG_8459We like to eat in our house… Like, a lot. We also are those hippie types that care about organic, non-gmo, plant based goodness. I’ve always been interested in healthy diets and as any parent can tell you, kids make everything difficult  complicated interesting. Healthy eating is no exception. You want your kiddo to eat the best food and learn to appreciate a variety of flavors from an early age… Not an easy task. We try to make as much of the boys baby food when they are first starting to eat, but life with a toddler and infant is crazy, so some days we run out or I’m totally unprepared. Shocking, I know. So there are times when Mama needs some help. Deciphering baby food labels is way too difficult these days, trying to read through the healthy buzzwords and figure out the best choice.

Enter Once Upon a Farm. I am such a fan of this company. Not all organic baby food is created equal. Every product is Certified Organic and Kosher, Non-GMO Project Verified, and Cold-Pressured. They never use any concentrates, pre-processed purees, juices or preservatives. This stuff tastes good. That’s right, I tried it and it’s yummy. I got a variety pack of applesauce and intended to feed them all to little man, but Rocco decided that he wanted ALL OF THEM. Kid is obsessed with applesauce these days, he started asking for his “refrigerator applesauce” instead of our pantry staple supply. R would devour them straight from the fridge, while Felix prefers them warmed up a bit. I just feel so much better knowing they don’t contain any weird additives to keep the safe for years in the stockroom or pantry.

We just signed up for a monthly subscription with a whole bunch of delicious sounding concoctions for the boys to try. I may have ordered the Chocolate Ever After for myself… That’s not weird, right!? I definitely suggest giving these a try!!!

Let’s Get a Move On

Soooooo you’re moving!?! That happens a lot in The Captain’s line of work and I’m finding that so many of my nearest and dearests are currently dealing with moves that are taking them West Coast to East, or vice versa. Packing up the house, the kids, the dogs… it’s stressful enough, packing up your wardrobe shouldn’t add to the headache.

My plan for a non-winter move is simple; basic layering pieces that can all be paired together or separately. They will work for a truck stop outside of Austin, a coffee break in Boulder, or a dinner in the windy city. You can add a piece or 4 to make this suit your particular route. You’ll also need undies and a set of pjs, but that’s about it. Pretty simple folks. You might even find yourself wearing these 15 pieces almost exclusively post-move.

Happy Moving!!!

 

What I’m up to…

So confession, this week blogging has been quite the afterthought… I’m behind on posts and taking my sweet time. We’ve had a sick miniature, taxes, visitors (yay!), and I’ve been busy with a little venture called Rocco + Norah. We are so excited about our Spring line and been working to get it all to you in a few weeks!!! I decided to throw in some sneak peak shots!!! We have added patterned leggings, which like all of our prints are our own designs!! You won’t find them anywhere else!! We’ve also designed our first graphic tee!! We are so excited to see where this next step leads us!!! We will have all the goodies you know and love plus all of our new additions. Say a prayer for us over the next few weeks as we get closer to dropping Spring!!! It’s stupid adorable.

Make sure you’re following us on Instagram for daily laughs and all the good words about launch day!!! If you just can’t wait for April we still have limited quantities of Fall which you can shop HERE![we call this digging for gold. HA!]

So some days I barely have time to shower, so when I get dressed it’s something that must be documented… and sometimes when I document those days of getting dressed I forget to look at the camera. See above. And then somedays I forget to blog completely, so I pop on my computer and throw together a quick post about an outfit that made me happy. Again, see above. #lazy

Note: The work that the Kula Project does is brilliant and my coffee tree bracelets are ah-mazing!! With the purchase of each bangle a farmer is able to plant a coffee tree in Rwanda that will provide their family with income for 30 years. Magic.

Glossier Dossier

IMG_7668So I was introduced to Emily Weiss and Into the Gloss years ago, by an insane person… but that’s neither here nor there. Still good gauge. Well, when Glossier launched I was absolutely obsessed with their branding, design, social media presence, etc. They are funny and don’t take themselves too seriously. Oh and it’s crazy affordable. #WINNING Since trying their goodies I’ve only fallen more in love!

Boy Brow is my new live for product. I might not change out of pjs today, but dammit I’m fixing my brows. I use the brown and it’s literally the most perfect color + styling product for your brows. They look crazy natural and it’s just simple.

Generation G Lipstick in Cake is another use for the rest of my days kinda product. The lip color is just the perfect fleshy perfecting color. I have nothing but love for this stuff.

Balm dot com in Rose is a perfect pale pink moisture bomb for your lips. It was the first product I bought from them and let’s just say it began the obsession.

IMG_7666Oh and let’s talk Cloud Paint, their newest product is as dreamy as it sounds. The creamy texture melts into your skin. LOVE.

The Stretch concealer is a great product creamy enough for under eye, but also easily covers up blemishes. The Perfecting Skin Tint is like your skin, but better. And I’m also digging their serums, Super Bounce has done great things for my crazy dry postpartum skin. I love it all, now if only we could get them to develop a mascara, it would surely be perfection.

Mama’s New Shoes

IMG_7358 IMG_7359 IMG_7360 IMG_7361 IMG_7363 IMG_7364 IMG_7365

Sometimes it’s too cold for sandals and too hot for boots, enter soots? bandals? sandoot!?! Amazing! The word you’re looking for is amazing. I’m in love. I’m so excited to rock my new shoes allllll year long. I’m also wearing my new motivation jeans and my new birthday jacket [thanks Captain.] So basically I’m super fancy. And by fancy, I mean comfortable and easy… lazy fashion… it’s my thing.
