Do you love flowers? Funny story, I didn’t used to. (I know! But they always died so quickly and cost so much!) But now, now I LOVE them! Having fresh flowers sitting around the house just makes me feel special and brightens my mood! I still want them to last and be affordable AND that is partly why I am ever so excited to partner with Bloomsybox! I am SO impressed with their gorgeous blooms and company ethics! Here’s a few reasons why:

You’d think after having twins I would have mastered the whole diaper bag skill, but it has only been recently that I feel I really have it locked down what I need to take in there every day! Having toddlers and an infant means very different daily needs, Charlie obviously doesn’t need the amount of snacks the twins do, and the twins haven’t needed diapers for some time. I admit that I have been through a few different diaper bags that brought me intense frustration before deciding I love this one! And, I have truly put it to the test. Read on for what I keep in my diaper bag and why I love the Hafmall bag! Click here for my video review!
One of my resolutions lately has been to take more walks with our stroller! Believe it or not, this has been hard for me due to all the things I need to take with us plus carrying Charlie! That’s why when babycharm.co reached out to me to feature their stroller organizer I JUMPED on it!
I first started babywearing out of desperation when the twins were newborns. I simply couldn’t walk around constantly holding them both in my arms but they needed to be near mama. It quite literally saved my life, and I quickly fell in love with the ability to have my hands free and soothe and love on my babies at the same time. I knew when Charlie was born I would wear him, and I honestly don’t know how I would handle my toddler twins and him without it! And before I begin, I am not a trained babywearing consultant. I AM a mama who has been babywearing for nearly four years successfully and as always, I simply share here what has helped me and my babies.
I would like to start this post by stating that I am not a trained lactation consultant. I am a mama who breastfed twins for nearly three years, donated over 13 gallons of milk while breastfeeding them and am currently breastfeeding my six month old son as well as donating milk on a weekly basis. These are simply tips that have helped (and continue to help!) me in my breastfeeding journey. Lastly, any companies I share in this post were carefully chosen by ME for what they stand for and the effects their products have had in my life personally.
I am SOO excited to share with you all an amazing mama and her incredible handmade, no waste shops! I found the lovely kind and talented Jesika Stoll in my search for the perfect adventure bags for the twins to take on our hikes and walks and various outdoor explorations. We LOVE her adventure bags! They’re the perfect size, beautifully made with quality materials, and easy for little hands to use. The twins are obsessed and literally take them everywhere! Jesika is a woman of many wonders, and has three different incredible shops that I am just in love with! The adventure bags are from her shop Keetna Farm Kids, where she also has clothing, wooden learning items and more! In addition to Keetna Farm Kids, she has Keetna Farm Botanicals and Keetna Farm Goods. I am obsessed with her reusable bags and other zero waste goods!
