Top 5 Stella & Dot Necklaces for Spring

Share Button

The new spring 2014 Stella & Dot line is out and I do have my favorites — however, I also like some of the classics such as the Pegasus which I think is one of the most epic pieces they have EVER created!

The truth is  — I am a bit of a Stella & Dot junkie. Good thing my friend and dealer stylist Kristin helps feed my addiction, otherwise I’m not sure what I would do!

Here are a few of my favorites for this season.

I know. I KNOW! And that’s my sweet girl in the Medina — because she’s too good for a cloth bib —  hahaha! Can you imagine?

Each piece is so beautiful and there is something so special about each one.

Which is your favorite?

What do you get when you mix super awesome amazing hair, with day old undies and unshaven legs? Me on a Saturday morning! Here I am with my kids at the spray park last weekend. All looks good — right? Well, if you could take a closer look you’d see that haven’t waxed my legs and my feet are in desperate need of a pedicure. On top of that, the blue dress I’m wearing has crusted mocos smeared on it (in {Read More}

Honey Cocktail Recipes for Sweet Summer Drinks

Share Button

Sponsored post in collaboration with The Motherhood and The Honey Board.  There is nothing we love more for an extra bit of sweetness in our home than honey. I stir it into my coffee, add some over my plain low-fat yogurt, on toast with peanut butter and it replaces syrup on my pancakes — and now in my kids water and in my summertime drinks! This honey cocktail recipe that I appropriately named “Viva el Verano” which translates to “Long Live Summer” {Read More}

I constantly struggle to find babysitters to cover the 5:00 – 7:30pm hours during the week and I have found myself passing up on on work events or simply an evening out with a friend because the thought of calling and emailing around to get coverage during that time is not worth all of the trouble. It’s an odd time, but my husband {Read More}

Wear Sunscreen NOT Sunburns #ChooseSkinHealth

Share Button

This is sponsored post in collaboration with Neutrogena® and Latina Bloggers Connect. However, all opinions expressed are my own. It’s sunscreen season and time to think about your skin health more than ever. Memorial Day will mean spending time outdoors and the rest of the summer months should be about enjoying the beach, the kids doing cannon balls at the pool or playing with the hose in the backyard — NOT about painful sunburned skin. Scary to think but 1 in {Read More}
