New post! 5 Tips for Raising Mindful Children is now live on The Style DJ. I’m beyond thrilled for this guest post written by an early childhood expert, teacher and mama, Kathryn Heine, and creator of @kidssimple. Hint: These approachable, everyday tips don’t just apply to kids. 😉 Blog post link is up in my bio. Here’s to the weekend, friends! 😘
New post preview! I’ve been working on this thrifting post and can’t wait to share my top tips for finding designer items for a steal. Why am I passionate about thrifting? Besides finding one-of-a-kind treasures, second hand shopping contributes to sustainable fashion practices and your purchases can benefit your local thrift shop and community. ❤️❤️❤️My latest inspo for this post? This stunning vintage Chanel coat I found for a fraction of what you’d pay from a resale sight. Perfectly paired with this season’s Bermuda short. 💯❤️ Peep my stories for a couple other previews. More to come next week!!

“Alexa, fart!!” Pfffffff 💨 💨 💨 My latest trick to get the kids laughing when I have the 📸 out. Also, the kids favorite request to spice up dinnertime. Not saying I don’t get a kick out of it, too 🤷🏼♀️😂 Sorry, Emily Post, but sometimes you just can’t take yourself too seriously.
Trying to look cool OR trying to sleep standing up because the 8th month sleep regression/teething is REAL 🤪 Hoping for sunshine and zzzzs this weekend. What are you guys up to?!

J’adore....swipe right to see my new favorite shoe for the season. I found these for less than $25 and they are so cozy cute. (The shopping details are linked in my bio!) #asseenonme
Spring cleaning, re-organizing and mini decor projects are all I’m thinking about these days. Who’s with me? I’ve in the middle of a (budget) half-bath remodel (and I’m doing everything 👯♀️) and swapping out all of our closets for the spring/summer season so I’m loading up my “to sell” and “donate” bags. ⠀ ⠀ If you’re like me and clearing out closets, get my tips on where to ship your clothes and accessories and make $$$ for new items in a recent post on The Style DJ- link is up in my bio. 😍 What spring cleaning projects are on your list??
