A Conversation About Our Future Skin #RenewMeCeraVe

If I could turn back time and take better care of my skin, I would do it in an instant. I wish I had put less focus on what I thought looked good in the moment and spent more time working on what looked good in the future, because aging gracefully is the best look for everyone. I would have spent less time in my teen years slathering my body in oils and laying pool-side burning to a crisp. I would have skipped the years that I visited the tanning salon three times a week to maintain that golden shade…

SMURFS: The Lost Village + How to do the Movies with Young Kids #SmurfsMovie

Smurfs are one of those things that remind me of a childhood that I can no longer remember. Like the distant memories of chestnut lined trees that would drop their treasures to the ground where I would collect them in baskets to bring home. Like the smell of bonfires that I know cooked kielbasa and potatoes although I can’t quite get a hold of any concrete memories. I just know that deep in the depths of my being, the formative years while still living in Poland were filled with these things. So you can call me sentimental or maybe I…

Every Queen Needs to Readjust Her Crown Sometimes

I think every queen deserves to readjust her crown once in a while. To take a much-needed break of ruling her kingdom, her empire, even her own damn self.

I was going to get myself, my house, my family obligations, my work, my blog and my social schedule exploding with success. I need to take a breather just looking at all of that. Lofty goals and especially when I…

LEGO Build Your City of the Future

LEGO has been part of my life since I could remember. Back then it was a lot less pain and a lot more awkward anticipation but none the less it was there. I was lucky enough to grow up with an uncle that was only 9 years older than me. He had LEGO, lots of LEGO, and I wanted it all. I imagine I was the annoying brat that kept breaking his masterpieces but when he grew out of his LEGO I was lucky enough to get it (and end the awkward anticipation). Part of his stash included a humongous…

I am the Parent Holding On + Giveaway #AventMoms

I am the parent holding on. Holding on to used pregnancy tests that ended in both babies and losses. Holding on to cards that are reminders of birthdays, milestones, and life’s little achievements. Holding on to umbilical cords that came from babies born too early and ones that were born in the safety of home shaped into hearts. Holding on to first outfits, first outfits that actually fit and shoes that were never worn because who actually puts shoes on newborns. Holding on to little hands so that they feel safe. Holding on to bigger hands so that they know…
