all® free clear detergent is one tool in my arsenal to make sure my kids can live free from sensitive skin worries. It's always necessary to pay attention to what I'm putting on their bodies, in their bath, and on their clothing, but during the dry months of winter and the summer months filled with allergens, itchy grass, and sweat, it becomes even more of a priority. Here's how I created a fun backyard obstacle course with 6 challenges and how using all® free clear detergent keeps me from freaking out at the thought of their sensitive skin and clothing covered in sweat and grass!
Barely a blog post but I thought I'd swing by with this look for less. The other day I was strolling past Z Gallerie and noticed this beauty in the window.
I really need throw pillows for the sofa but didn't have time to pop in. When I kept thinking about it later, I had to find its price. And boy was I saddened at its $80 price tag. Gulp.
Today, as I was about to toss the West Elm mailer in the trash without even looking at it, I decided to thumb through it real quick. And noticed this pillow for half the price. Fate? I think so.
I'm busy packing for our trip to New Hampshire and completing a project for a fun post you'll read next week. Till then, ciao beauties! Don't forget to enter yesterday's $100 Amazon Giveaway!
*CLOSED* Congrats Kim S.!

Back to school clothes shopping can be overwhelming. I try to avoid taking all three kiddos to any store ever (What? I'm fragile) so I do much of my shopping online. But over the months leading up to school, I see sales and cute styles everywhere but fail to take the time to pull it all together. This year I'm teaming up with some fantastic bloggers to share a $100 Amazon gift card giveaway so it was the perfect opportunity to pull together some super cute looks for Genevieve's back to school wardrobe. I made sure to include many items from Amazon, several styles, and lots of budget friendly options. Make sure to shop the sales and use promo codes, for the best deal! And don't forget to enter the giveaway at the end! Here's the first look (affiliate links included):
Viva Towels to bags for the car, the park, and the pool. Here's what's in them:
I have a gut. It's super annoying because my stomach was never my problem area (see the proof). And also because my "baby" is two. I'm working on not feeling the need to hide my imperfections but I think there's a happy spot between being ashamed of our bodies and being oblivious to how clothes flatter or flaunt our flaws. I've been told repeatedly that people "can't believe" I have a mom pooch (For the record, I hate that term but it's really the best way to describe it). I've even felt the need to show it off to prove I'm not just fishing for compliments. And then there's the awkward moment where a friend is like "Oh, you're right. It is ridiculous." haha. Rather than turn sideways bump-picture-style, I've decided to take the disbelief as a compliment. I'm very intentional about wearing shirts that flatter. Gone are the days of slim fitting tees and waist cinching garments. But that doesn't mean I'm going to don a baby doll tee every day either. Here are some of my favorite silhouettes and pieces (many of which I own a version of) to flatter plus an explanation of why they work.
