Which one you need today? #caseofthemondays

Throwing it back to a couple of Fridays ago, when I had all the time to get dolled up and wear an outfit that didn’t require “moming” It was super tempting to go out and buy something new, but I decided to shop my closet instead and found this skirt and top, both of which I’ve had forever, but never worn together. So, as you’re getting ready for the weekend, don’t panic. You have clothes, shop your own closet and put something new together ✨ #isithappyhouroclockyet

ad| So ready for the weekend☀️ One of my favorite new routines is sitting down for a meal together. Avo toast and my homemade açaí bowls ( recipe on the blog) are on heavy rotation around here for breakfast, as well as @RenewLife probiotics. Such an easy way to maintain digestive health and boost the immunize system, especially with preschool germ season in full swing. Shop at or @Amazon, and use code “Back2School” to save 15%

ad | I saw a mom the other day with her four kids cheerfully walking around Ralphs. Her baby swaddled to her body, two older kids (about 5 and 6) helping and a little girl about Fs age sitting quietly in the cart.
The mom was also dressed, hair done, and make up on. I envied that mom for a few moments, because I was a hot mess post yoga creepily watching that mom, envious of her patience and cheerfulness. But then I quickly reminded myself it’s all fleeing moments. That seconds from now all could go wrong, or maybe it did just a few moments ago. .
That’s what I learned about motherhood. It’s tantrums and then suddenly deep belly laughs moments later, it’s deep breaths and also staying in the moment. .
In today’s post I’m sharing a motherhood update and why bath time with F is especially helpful with an active toddler and thoughts on raising a trilingual child, in partnership with @johnsonsbaby and @krogerco #getwhatbabyneeds #choosegentle

A few short years ago, all I was worried about when packing for Vegas is if I brought enough heels and tops which I wore as dresses 😱 On this last trip though, I was mostly concerned whether I remembered my starting lineup of products for my Sunday night ritual 😂 That’s what happens when you’re in your mid 30s ✨ #sundayritual #30somethings #beautyhaul #skincareroutine #skincareproducts

#ad Msg 4 21+ | Back to regular life means back to making giant bowls of goodness 🌿 and wine, especially since it’s just me and the baby for a couple of days. .
I partnered with @blackboxwines to share the best chicken marinade recipe, and I’m not just saying it. I’ve literally lost count of how many times I’ve made our chicken using this marinade. Because it’s easy, fast and delicious, like having a box of wine on the counter or the fridge- totally my kind of thing. Recipe on the blog, happy hump day friends ✨ #blackboxwines #saladfordinner #winelover #collectivebias #sofabfood

Home safely thanks to @mitsubishimotors who let us borrow this 2018 Outlander Sport LE AWC to whip around town, and we didn’t even have to stop for gas, just photo shoots 😎 #DriveMitsubishi #sponsored #vegasbabyvegas

Vegas, you never disappoint. Until next time 😘✨

Forever a city girl at heart ✨

This photo may not do justice to the cute romper that I found at @norestforbidget, but can we take a moment to appreciate that highlighter glow from @pixibeauty on these cheekbones 💁🏽‍♀️✨ .
I also linked to some super cute floral jumpsuits, all under $40 in the app, or you can find details on the blog under Shop My Instagram. #liketkit

Good wine, amazing food & great company=pure joy ✨ #latergram
