Friday Finds: Organization & Spring Refresh

January 19, 2018


Hey Everyone!!

Today's Friday Finds I am super excited to share!! So since the end of December into January here I have just wanted simplicity in my life. No excess. Since having Rory, I just want life to be easy, make sense, and be simpler. I want an organized house without clutter (well I always have wanted that) but my OCD has gone overload.

Therefore I will be sharing a lot more posts on simplifying your life, organization, decluttering and more! I believe this makes me personally live my best life. Having things organized, all the excess out of the house, and living simpler makes more time for my kids and less stress on me. I will be sharing lots of tips and tricks along the way.



For now, I have been purchasing not clothing, but things to get me organized in the house!!! I don't buy expensive things to get me organized either. I like affordable organizational tools and there are SO many out there!!

Another thing I like to do after the holidays is decorate the house RIGHT into spring. Get out some light airy spring decor. It helps my mood even though its frigid outside. I think bringing spring feels inside can help lift those winter blues easily. I did this last year and it made a WORLD of difference for me!!! I have already picked up a couple things this year to continue the spring refresh to start the year :)

Tips on bringing spring into your home will be coming soon and I will probably do an IG Story on what I do! :)

Have a great weekend!

Always,
Erin

Postpartum Update

January 16, 2018

Hello Everyone!!!

Today I am sharing a postpartum update on how Rory and I are doing. So we are almost at the 2 month mark! I can't believe it! Actually Friday she will be 2 months!!! I can't believe it! It has flown by maybe even faster than it felt with Eli!

I have to say I feel like I fell into a routine with Rory a LOT easier and quicker than I did with Eli. I felt more confident as a mom. Nursing has been really easy with her but we have had some bumps along the way. If you would like a post just on breastfeeding and how we have done with that I can share our experience on that.

Rory just had her 6 week appointment and shes growing like a weed!! Shes 11lbs 8oz. and 22.5 inches already!

I will say our daily routine and schedule has been good but a little different everyday because of my work schedule. I haven't been able to keep a rigid routine with her as well but she adapts really well to whatever is going on. I find its harder with the second in general to keep as rigid of a schedule.

We have also had a little struggle with reflux. It doesn't seem to be horrible but we had a week there where projectile vomitting was an every feeding occurrence. It was really scary but she was still wetting diapers and having bowel movements so I knew she was getting something. Her reflux is a little better. We actually still have her sleeping in her Rock n Play just because of the incline. She is sleeping next to our bed but I am ready for her to be in her own room. I think she is ready! She is such a good baby! I just can't complain :)

As far as me postpartum, this second time around has been muchhhh different. My body HAS NOT gone back to normal. I have a lot more weight to lose. I swear I was like a freak of nature with Eli and lost all the weight and was back to normal within like 2 weeks. This time around has been much harder. I also feel like "healing" in general has taken much longer for me this time around. I actually didn't get the ok at my 6 week appointment that was I fully healed. I am not sure why but it has just been taking a lot longer. I do feel like I didn't give myself the rest I did when I had Eli. I kind of just jumped right back into life when I had Rory and well my body is kind of paying for it.

Let me know anything you would like to see with newborn/toddler life in the comments! Whether it be our sleep/feeding schedule or how breastfeeding is going...or anything! I would love to share :)

Thanks for visiting!

Always,
Erin

Product Review: BareMinerals Dirty Detox

January 09, 2018

Hello Everyone!!!

Happy Tuesday and today we are talking a little skincare. The BareMinerals Dirty Detox has been such an amazing mask for me lately. The postpartum/dead of winter breakouts have begun for me. I get these stubborn hormonal breakouts that want to come and linger...but NO MORE. The Dirty Detox is a green detoxifying mud mask. It really detox and pulls all the gunk out of my skin! Think Ninja Turtle when you apply. This mask in enriched with charcoal that purifies the skin and papaya enzymes that leave the skin glowing and vibrant!

Lets quickly talk about this little kit called the Masks Essentials Duo in the photo tagged along with the Dirty Detox mask....IM OBSESSED. I kind of thought...its a brush and a cloth. Why do I need that for applying a mask? I can just apply with my fingers. While, yes yes you can do that....this just literally blew me away hahaha. I can not apply ANY mask now without. It is the perfect size and shape to evenly apply any mask. It makes life so much simpler and I never even knew it. This cloth...again GAME. CHANGER. The cloth has waffle texture that isn't even soft or comforting to the skin. It literally just glides the mask off my skin in one wipe! No more rubbing and tugging at the skin!! This cloth, especially for thicker mud masks like Dirty Detox, is AMAZING! 

Again be a little "boujee" and treat yourself. It's not an essential but if you are into masking like myself...its a great little treat :)

Erin
