TRAVELBUG: Summer Traveling with the Kiddo

If you’re a parent reading this (props to you for finding the time to read this) hang in there… summer is almost over. It’s exhausting, am I right?

Princess Pamper Party

My friends and I have been going to the same gal, Adriana, for our monthly facials. She’s an absolute doll.

I’ll be brutally honest – when we roll up to home after the 5 o’clock hour as I lug backpacks, groceries, and my camera gear up our stairs and… Read More >

Valentine, You Blow My Mind

Ever since I watched the documentary Fed Up, I’ve been scarred by the thought of sugar. (Take 2 minutes to watch this, talk about mind blown…) So when a holiday or special event comes up, I try to be creative in ways to steer my almost 4-year-old daughter away from as much sugar as possible –… Read More >
