• My Favorite Instagram Shops For Baby

    I am on my phone all of the time, especially during middle of the night feedings. There isn’t much more to do when you have one hand, a baby on your lap and no light besides the dim nightlight. So how do I pass the time? SHOPPING (or window shopping at least)! I have found some amazing Instagram shops and I’m really excited to share them all today! There are countless shops out there these days, but these five are by far my favorites. I love the brand behind the photos and products and supporting these families is so much better than a random product from Target (even though we…

  • When You Don’t Have Blogging Burnout & IG Challenge Announcement

    This post is full of random things in my head, but instead of silence around here, I am going to lay it all out. I’ve always heard the term “blogging burnout” but I had never really experienced it. Actually, I don’t even know if I have experienced it as of right now.

    Using Instagram Efficiently: Photo Editing Apps

One of my favorite things about using Instagram is that i’s such an easy way to catch up with friends, family, and other bloggers, but also fill my wanderlust, help me dream of a larger closet, and encourage me to read more. I love being able to aimlessly scroll through photos and feel captivated, inspired and intrigued. Other social media outlets turn into drama, posts that get to me, and things I am honestly not totally interested in. Instagram is curated and perfect for those few minutes between emails or while waiting in line at…

  • #HeresToYouDecember Recap

      I can’t believe we are almost at the end of the December Instagram challenge, #HeresToYouDecember. A few months ago when Megan, Annie, Laura and I started tossing around the idea of a challenge, I had no idea it would have been this successful! It is so much fun having a peek into so many versions of December, all around the country. So first, THANK YOU to those that have been using the hashtag, following the prompts, liking and commenting along with us. This has been so much fun!     I honestly didn’t think I would be able to keep up with every day myself, so it has been…
