Biba M Stroller

I have been on the hunt for a lightweight stroller that gives me more options than an umbrella stroller for a while and I am excited to share that all my musts are available in the Biba M Single stroller!

The Biba M Single checks all the boxes on my list: a fully reclining seat, oversized canopy, easy folding, larger basket, and it must be lightweight.

I don’t want to say I’m a stroller pro, but I have pushed my fair share of strollers around with three kids that I want to think I know a little haha. The Biba M is super easy to maneuver whether we are visiting the local shops or exploring the great outdoors.

Whether you are looking for a single or a double, I highly recommend checking out the collections from Biba M. They have a color for every personality and style. Check out more on their page HERE.

Beach days.

We had such an amazing Labor Day. We just hung out on the beach all day while the kids played and sweet Ellie even took a nap. Our smart edge outdoor blanket and toddler lounge from Lulyboo definitely made our day easier.

All my little water babies snuggled up eating snacks together was just what we needed.

Of course the easy clean up and storage options make my mama heart happy. The blanket rolls right up with a carrying handle and the lounge buckles into a backpack! Score! I’d say it was a successful day. Check out Lulyboo on IG HERE.

Hooded towels from Kindhood. Check them out on IG HERE.

Active life.

I always say I am such a city girl but I grew up in a very small town. While it’s not for me, I think kids really benefit from living a slower, outdoorsy life. It’s not always go go go. We have been exploring all that Utah has to offer us and these postpartum leggings have been amazing for all our activities! Lots of support and super comfy.

Nothing like a pair of leggings to give you the confidence you need!

I love pairing my bangles with everything that I own. I literally wear them like every day whether I am dressed down or dressed up. I can thank my husband for getting me hooked on them. I received my first bangle as a gift from him and when I went into the Salt Lake location I fell in love with everything in the store. I can not wait to grow my collections and work along with this amazing company.

I absolutely loved working with Rachel. It was one of the most fun shoots I have ever had. It was very laid back and we vibed very well together. Rachel is an amazing photographer. She caught all the really fun moments and has an amazing eye. I can not wait to shoot with her again.

For this shoot I wanted to take one shirt and style it two different ways. The shirt is a crop from Pacsun and one of the softest, most comfortable shirts I own. The first look is a more girly feel. I paired it with a maxi skirt that I made and a jean jacket. It is the perfect outfit for any girls day out or date night.

I fell in LOVE with Ija Designs the moment I clicked into their site. Can I be totally lame and say that everything in their site just speaks to me?! Because it totally does. My husband always jokes with me and says that I was born in the wrong time. If I could walk around with no shoes and big oversized dresses and flower crowns with lots of fringe all the time, I would. I love everything that speaks to my soul and gives off an energy like no other. That is exactly what Ija Designs does for me. It is jewelry that is beautiful but compliments your inner beauty.

Runaway.

A month. That is how long it has been since I have even looked at the blog. So much happened in that month. Christmas. New years. Modeling gigs. Hurt foot. Family issues. The list goes on and on. SOOO, why did I just up and abandon it? Because it got to the point where it was expected of me to post. Yes I know, the point of a blog is for me to post, but when people are saying to me “you need to post more of the boys outfits” or post this or post that, that’s not me. It wasn’t for me anymore it was for everyone else. I don’t do commitment well. Before y’all chime in that I do commitment everyday of my life being married and being a mom… yes I am fully committed with all my heart. I am in a loving marriage and a stay at home mom to two amazing boys, yes it scares the shit out of me all the time. I do not know what the future will bring us and yes that is scary. Besides my brother and sister, surprise yes I have half siblings, there really has not been any stable committed relationships in my life. I panic everyday thinking that I could potentially fail my family, because that is all I knew growing up, but I know that it is all worth it. So, when the blog became something I had to do I ran. No thank you, I am out, see ya! Basically run the other way as fast as I can and not look back. But, I miss it. I won’t lie. Not necessarily the outfits and all that good stuff, but being able to share the real me with y’all. For you to see that there is more than just these cute little kids in cute little outfits running around. A real mom living a real life everyday. The ups, the downs, the good , the bad, and the ugly.

I am not going to say I am back 110%. I am not going to give you this huge long “I am going to post everyday and give you guys everything” rant. Cause that for sure is not me. It just take the little things in life to realize that sometimes you need an outlet. This is my outlet. If you love it, I love you, if you don’t that’s okay too. Some people are going to come here for the clothes, some people just for the real-ness, and some people just cause I bribed them to come and read my dumb posts haha. But I will share with you everything I love when I feel like it is something you will care about.

Where in the heck did all this come from you ask? No, probably not, but I am going to tell you anyways haha. Lately my very loving sons and brothers have not been so loving. They have their moments of pure just… I don’t even know, rage maybe, sometimes I honestly think they just hate each other. Nothing like I have ever seen before where Hurleigh will just go to town on Bentleigh, because Bentleigh is the sneaky one and does things to make him mad, but in a very quiet way. I know that they do not hate each other, far from it, they have a love I could have never imagined for them. So as I was putting them to bed in their beds tonight, that of course have to be touching Bentleigh said, and Hurleigh does end up half in Bentleigh’s bed so fine, I had this moment of fear. Fear that my commitment to them is failing, that some place I have gone wrong and something I am doing is not right. BUT I know siblings fight and I know people who are together 24/7, 365 days a year are not going to see eye to eye every second of everyday and that applies to them as well. So here we are. Basically venting on my blog and if you are still reading high-five. And thank you (:
