I’ve been telling you guys for months not to sleep on the amazing finds that Walmart has been offering this spring. But ICYMI, there are plenty more budget-friendly Walmart picks for summer. I think this is my favorite product round-up yet because of the easy breezy maxi skirts and outdoor furniture options make me ready for sunshine. (In fact, I’ve already ordered several of the things in today’s collage and will be doing a try-on in my Stories later today!) A few things I wanted to call out from the collage:
Also really loving the fact that I can order things like cute skirts and candles all in one online cart with the other household products that we need instead of having to checkout across multiple sites. (I’ve also really been taking advantage of Walmart’s grocery pick up on the app too.)
To say I’ve had a lot of time to think about what I’m going to do AFTER quarantine is an understatement. Every single day, I think I’ve mentioned at least one thing out loud that I miss about pre-coronavirus days. This might sound like I’m being negative, but I think it also makes me appreciate even the smallest of things that I previously overlooked before now. So I started making a list of everything that popped in my head – even the littlest things – that I am going to look forward to once this is over. And surprise, surprise, almost all of them involve being outside of our house and plenty of sunshine. I thought I’d share mine in case you want to start your own post-quarantine bucket list to look forward to checking off.
When I think about some of the most timeless pieces in my wardrobe, jewelry immediately comes to mind. If you’re a regular reader here, you probably know that I almost always have at least one piece of jewelry on – even if it’s just classic studs whenever I leave the house. (And sometimes even during quarantine.) I recently spent a morning taking inventory of all the jewelry that I own – some pieces I’ve had for years while others are fairly new. That’s when I realized that I’ve never actually shared a list of my most-loved jewelry brands, so I immediately started working on a list to share my current jewelry collection for reference.
Waited a little late to shop for mom this year? I’m usually a gift-buying procrastinator, so I am totally with you… I’ve rounded up some easy and practical Mother’s Day gifts every mom will love – even if they show up a little late. (And with shipping delays due to COVID, who really knows when things are going to arrive anyway?)
Make sure to scroll all the way through to see some EXCLUSIVE discount codes from various retailers that you can use for Mother’s Day or for yourself – I wouldn’t blame you if you found something you want. From farm-grown roses to CBD products and photobooks to skincare, there’s a little something for everyone!
If you haven’t heard of Grace Rose Farm – go check out their Instagram feed NOW. It’s the most insanely gorgeous rose farm in California, and they are shipping bouquets across for Mother’s Day – any mom would be so excited to get these beauties!
Earlier this year, I finally sat down and made a photobook with all of Bennett’s photos from 2019. I don’t know what took me so long because Chatbooks is SO insanely easy to use. You can make one directly from their phone app that syncs to your camera roll! Surprise your mom with a book of her own or a credit to make one from her own photos!
Okay, one thing every woman needs is a great face wash. I have not found one better than the Tula Cult Classic face wash. I kid you not, it changed my face washing forever. Grab one for mom along with one of their rose eye balm sticks or the hair, skin, and nail gummies!
So many reasons why I love this brand – especially since I did a full podcast episode on it! (LISTEN HERE) Start mom off with the Brilliance Box as a starter kit or one of their limited time Mother’s Day bundles!
I can’t believe I’m already writing a post on our most used baby items months 6-12! I’ve been keeping a running list of new things that we get for Bennett as he reaches new milestones. It’s crazy to think about how much he’s already grown since the newborn to 6 months post + there are so many more “essentials” than when he was smaller. Our new normal is now so much more than just boppy pillows and sleepsuits. But, it’s SO FUN to see all his different skills start to develop using all of the items in today’s post.
I’ve divided the list up into different sections, but all babies will be different. These are just the things that work for us and Bennett right now! And if you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me at anytime to ask!!
