I’m in love with book mobiles! I think they are absolutely beautiful and completely unique, especially when you make them yourself. The cool thing is that they can be totally customizable by finding the perfect cover that matches the nursery’s theme or color scheme. While strolling through the thrift store recently, I found dozens and dozens of Winnie the Pooh hardcover books. I scooped one up to show how easy it is to create your very own awesome DIY Disney themed book mobile!

I used to be a major product junkie. I like to think I am still am — however now it’s more so Burt Bees for Baby. While I still could spend hours in the make-up aisle of my local Target, I don’t get to primp in the mirror for hours anymore. But here is the thing we almost all always forget — it takes five minutes to spruce up your beauty routine. Even with a baby! I decided to snap a quick iPhone picture of my favorites inside my make-up bag so I could share how you can still have time to apply make-up — even if it means wearing the baby in the carrier while you do it.
So, take a look at my quick beauty tips so you can look and feel beautiful in just minutes. Time to makeover your beauty routine, pretty lady!

Winter is blowing pretty hard where I live; which usually calls for hot, comforting, stick-to-your-ribs sort of meals. I’m all for brothy soups, thick stews and voluminous breads. In abundance in fact. Yet during these sun deprived months, I also find myself craving fresh greens, clean eats and foods reminiscent of summer.
Perhaps it’s a bit cathartic for the soul, to eat food that reminds me of long hot days and warm sultry evenings. It’s definitely good for my body, clean eating helps keep me fit and spry, helping me to keep up after my little toddlers and all that running a house-hold entails.
Last week I embarked on a 10 day smoothie cleanse and today marks the end of day 4, so I thought I’d share a few recipes that I can have right now as well as some that I had in preparing for the big liquid fast!
