I use Vistaprint for basically all of my business' printing needs. They seriously make it so simple to upload your graphics preview in 3D, and order, without having to worry about it not showing up the way you expected!
In 2019, I was on the hunt for the perfect piece of artwork to display in my baby's nursery. Without much luck, I decided to design my own printable quote to frame for the room. Then I thought, if I'm after this, surely others are too! So I created a collection of beautiful printable quotes for your home.
Yes I just took a hard left turn. But seriously - I don't care what brand you get, no cookie dough ice cream has enough cookie dough in it. So my best advice? Buy your own container of cookie dough from the store and throw some chunks into that ice cream. You'll thank me later.
During college, I was one of the lucky ones to gain the Freshman 15 (ahem, more like college 50...). Between stress eating between classes and work, a few too many nights out with friends, and not nearly enough exercise, my health fell to the wayside. In 2017 when I got engaged, I knew I had to make a change if I was going to live my best life and look the way I wanted for my wedding. I stand by Weight Watchers which helped me to drop 30 of those pounds and keep them off through a lifestyle that was manageable for me.
I used to drop all of my money at salons month after month, because guys? I absolutely LOVE having freshly painted nails. Anyone with me? But there came a point that it finally hit me, I could probably do this myself at home. So I hopped onto Amazon, bought me a full on salon quality dip powder kit and started doing it myself. Now friend, there's a bit of a learning curve so don't expect perfect nails the first go round. But when you think you can get the whole kit for the same price as getting them done at the salon ONCE, it's a total game changer!
My personal faves
This is the number one thing that saves me money without having to do a darn thing! Anytime I go to check out on any website, Honey checks to see if there are any promo codes out there on the world wide web that might work on my purchases. So many times Honey will come in clutch and save me some moola!

Okay, I'll be honest. I told Blake we have to use these with Cal first before the less pretty pacifiers. But real talk - paci's don't get much more adorable than these ones, and while I may be biased, I think our sweet babe is pretty darn cute in the first place!

This adorable baby lounger has been a total game changer for me. Babies love being snuggled in our arms ALMOST as much as we love snuggling them. But let's be honest, there comes a point we have to be hands free to get anything done in the house. I'm obsessed with our Snuggle Me in the Natural colored cover. And a little hack for ya? Tune into their websites Thursday mornings at 9am to snag an "Imperfect" lounger for WAY cheaper. I scored an imperfect lounger and cover myself and can't find a single flaw no matter how closely I look!
Save $40+ each Thursday morning!
Can you say hands-free? I did a ton of research on the best baby wraps. There are so many great ones out there - Tuck & Bundle, Solly Baby, Wild-Bird, and more. Ultimately I chose Tuck & Bundle because they were lighter weight and I thought the little leather tag was super cute and would make it easy to find the center of the wrap. You guys, there are days my baby won't stop crying but then I put him in his T&B and like magic he is happy and asleep within 5 minutes. I couldn't live without this wrap and I just know you'll love it too!
It seemed like all throughout my pregnancy, I kept seeing and hearing about mama's losing their babies to SIDS or other sleep related incidents. With so many veteran moms recommending this breathable mattress, I knew I had to have a Newton. If anything were to ever happen I would regret settling on a cheap alternative instead of investing in a product I could use with not only our first babe, but with future children as well.

My ride or die. Since the moment I found out I was pregnant I had my eye on a Fawn bag, and now that it's gotten plenty of use, I can truly say it is a top notch diaper bag. I always wear it as a backpack, but you can also make it a shoulder bag as well, and it has a compartment for everything. Not to mention the buttery soft and high quality material it's made of.
