Cheers to the next decade, 2020


Happy New Year! It’s 2020! I can’t believe a whole decade of me being a real adult has gone by. It feels kinda nuts. Also, isn’t it crazy to think that someone born in the year 2000 is a 20 year old? And that The Wire, Gilmore girls and Friends were the shows to watch 20 years ago! I’ve never really felt old until January 1st, 2020! 

So I’m just going to keep it short. 2019 was a big year for me; I birthed another little human. I’m also very proud of my little community on Instagram. I’ve made some very good friends in this crazy world and I’ve progressed in my business in this space. I’ve also reached a level of self-love that I don’t think I’ve ever had before. I’m not going to be all dramatic, but essentially, I’ve decided to be kind and patient to myself. The unkind things we say about ourselves about our bodies we would never say to our closest friends, or even a stranger, so why subject ourselves to that kind of hatred? 

That said, it’s still time for resolutions and I’m keeping mine pretty simple! First, I want to be a better mom. Perfection his unattainable, so just doing better will have to do. I want to put my phone down more when I’m with my babies, and I want to be more patient, especially with Julien. Three is a fun but challenging age; he pushes boundaries a lot. Sometimes it’s “sorry mama, I won’t do it again.” And other times it’s “no, mama! Leave me alone!” And he storms off to his bedroom. I mean, his world did change with Harper, and three is the age of emotions. So patience with him is my main mom goal. 

Second, I want to get back into the gym and start feeling good again. I’ve always been a gym person. Not athletic by any means; I’d rather drive than walk, but I was just getting into my running groove before this last pregnancy. I was so sick during the first trimester I had to stop, and then I just broke the working out habit in general. So getting back in the gym and running outdoors is a goal. I also miss feeling soreness from a good workout. Nothing beats that ‘oh shit, I can’t sit on the toilet’ soreness. 

Third, I want to start being proud of being a micro-influencer. I’m not sure why I feel ashamed of what I do sometimes, but I know I shouldn’t. I always cringe when I say “I’m a blogger/influencer.” Why?!! People who want to judge will judge no matter what, so why give it more weight? I work damn hard at this and I should be proud of that. 

Next, I want to read more. Simple. I used to read a ton. And now I watch tv shows on my free time instead of picking up a book. I need to change that. Balance.

Lastly, I want to be less wasteful. I want to compost more. I want do donate more. I want to make meal prep plans before I go to the grocery store so that half my produce doesn’t just sit there and rot in the fridge. I want to look into the places I’m donating my gently used clothes and household items. I want to walk when I can instead of driving. I want to buy a little less fast fashion (which will be really hard!). Little by little, though. I started making a list of items I really want in a season so I can stop buying just to buy. And conveniently, with my kids, I can’t just go to the mall on a whim. So that helps. I also found that when I’m online shopping,  putting a ton of stuff in my cart and then looking at the price at the end makes me just leave it all behind. Lol! I swear this works!! 

Hopefully writhing that all out helps to keep me accountable! Happy 2020, you guys!!! And thank you so much for rocking with me in 2019!

a quick fashion PSA


It’s almost Christmas!! We just put up our tree TODAY! And I still have about 90% of my shopping to do. Okay, I fib, I fib  – 95%! I’m low key freaking out but it’s okay. We’ll get there! The holidays bring on so much stress and I’m determined to not let it get to me entirely. I’m just taking it one day at a time until the 25th.

So what is it about a pair of faux leather leggings that’s got a girl feeling herself! I bought these after Julien was born because I knew they would make me feel good once I could fit into them comfortably! They were kind of like my ‘goal’ pants, like some women have their skinny jeans. We’ll fast forward three years, and they still have the same effect on me! I’m not much of leggings outside of the gym person, but make them faux leather and I’m all over it! And then add a cute booty and a neon toque and I’m a whole new lady! 

I love fashion for this very reason. You don’t need very expensive things. For instance, these leggings are from  Joe Fresh! You don’t need to decked out in the latest “it” items or trends. Not all trends are created equal for starters! And not every trend is intended for every body. You just need to be wearing something you feel good in. For me, that happens to be this almost three year old, $40 pair of faux leather leggings! Ok. I’m done. That’s all for my quick little fashion PSA. Thanks for tuning in!
