Sister Christmas Pictures

We just finalized the outfits that the girls will be wearing for Christmas pictures this year, so I thought I would share them with you. They are going to be getting their photos taken together just at a simple studio this year. I wasn't able to organize the whole family for group shots with a photographer this time around...but that will be the goal for next year!

Madewell Favorites

I don't know why it has taken me so long to discover Madewell...but I finally have, and I am loving most everything they have to offer! It seems like the perfect place to go for classic, neutral pieces, whether it be clothing, shoes, or even accessories.

I haven't gotten the chance to order anything yet, but from a quick browse, these are the things that immediately caught my eye! If you have any Madewell favorites too - please let me know. I'd love recommendations!

And great news! You can get 25% right now for Cyber Monday using the code GOODMOOD! 

Recent Cruelty Free Empties

Wednesday, November 15, 2017

Why do the weeks following a long weekend seem to drag on for all eternity? It is only Wednesday, and I feel like I've been at work much longer than just three days already. 

I've used up a bunch of beauty products lately, and have been keeping the empty bottles laying around, so that I could share my thoughts on each of them with you! This post will be about the most recent group...but there are also posts coming soon about a big pile of makeup empties and then a big pile of skin care empties, so brace yourselves.

*All items are from cruelty free companies. 

Nursery Plans

Monday, November 13, 2017


How terrible am I? My daughter is nearly 6 months old and her nursery still isn't done yet. My excuse is that she doesn't even really use it yet - since she's still sleeping in our room. 

My plans for this room have altered slightly since when I was pregnant. During that time, I was going for a more cool toned space with lots of light grey incorporated. But, since Marin was born, and over the past few months, the plans have shifted. We are still going to use the same crib and changing table (obviously), but I want to change up some of the decor before she is in there full time.

Bits + Bobs

Happy weekend, friends! Well, not sure how many people have a long weekend, but our offices are closed I am excited that this is my Friday and I get three days at home with my little bird. We are still working on things around the house (always. never ending.) and hopefully will get a few things done off the "To Do" list. 

I might be taking a trip up to Akron to see my sister and my best friend Michelle (and her new daughter)...but sickness is lingering, so we are playing it by ear. Marin just got over her bug and Michelle's daughter is only a few weeks old - so not taking any chances!   

Maple Holistics

Tuesday, November 7, 2017

I was recently contacted by Maple Holistics to try out some of their hair care products. This is a brand that boasts products that are all natural and made up of the highest quality ingredients here in the United States.  I was immediately on board...once I double checked that they were a cruelty-free brand (Logical Harmony approved)...because I love sharing new products and brands with you all!

New Fashion Pieces

Fall Fashion Bits

It is chilly and rainy here in Columbus, and I am ALL about it. It might sound weird, but part of me loves dreary weather. Not all the time, but let's be honest - I really needed a break from all the muggy heat that we were blasted with this summer (and up until the past couple weeks). My Mum and I joke that it's the Scottish part of me that craves a cloudy overcast day. Do any of you feel the same?

I've picked up a few fashion bits over the past week or so that will be great to wear in these chillier temperatures. And now that I see them all laid out, they will be good to mix and match with each other too!

Cruelty free skin care

Happy Friday friends! I'm back with a new Cruelty Free Item of the Week post. It has been awhile since I've done one of these...they were intended to be weekly, which didn't entirely pan out...but we are back! And this week, I want to share with you the 3-Ingredient Cream from S.W. Basics.

October Highlights

Thursday, November 2, 2017

Wow. The months are just flying by at this point! Does anyone else feel this way? I feel like summer was just a minute ago, and now here we are with October already over and the holidays creeping up. I'm not ready for it! Thinking about Christmas shopping literally makes me break into a panic sweat right now!

Anyway, I'm hopping on here today to share some of the high points and highlights from our month of October...
