If you’ve followed wme a while and shopped this with me last year, you probably can relate when I say I wait for this sale all year! And I always get excited when it’s right before my spring vacation(s) bc I can stock up on my favorite shoes/bags/jewelry that are otherwise RARELY, if ever, on sale!

All Things Valentine’s Day: Cute Heart Fashion, Gift Ideas for Him, Date Night Dresses

I asked you guys on Instagram what content you wanted to see for Valentine’s Day and the vote was spread. The top 3 things you mentioned you wanted to see were Valentine’s Day casual fashion, gift ideas for him and date night dresses! So I tried to cover a little bit of all of it here! I know a lot of people say V Day is overrated, but it remains special to me. However you decide to celebrate {or not}, I hope you feel the LUV…

My sweatshirt is only $11! Shipping was fast. I got mine in only a few days, so if you order soon, you should have with plenty of time for Valentine’s Day! My jeans are currently 50% off and run TTS! Here is my fav red designer bag (smaller version). Here are my Golden Goose sneakers. Here is my initial necklace that is only $15!

Where I Find Golden Goose on Sale, My Favs AND Dupes for You & Your Kids!

My Obsessesion for Golden Goose sneakers is real! And whether you share this LUV or not, you can’t denounce that these sneaks have lit up the fashion scene, as they sell off shelves left and right! I CONSTANTLY get questions about them- where to find them, how they fit, what I like about them… and I hope this post outlines it all!

First off- they DO run true to size! I’m a true size 7 and I always order a size 37, and I’ve never had an issue with sizing! So, I’d say grab your true size.

Second, they do ALWAYS sell out quickly! You wouldn’t believe, at this price point, how quickly they sell. But they DO! So… if you’re eyeing a pair, grab them. ESPECIALLY if they’re on sale! It seems close to impossible to find them in your size on sale (unless you have an uncommon shoe size) so if you’ve been on the lookout for a pair in your size on sale, and you see them… just a head’s up that they will most likely be gone fast! This actually goes for a lot that are full price as well, but there are certain basics that are restocked often. Like my first pair I’ve ever bought (in the picture below)…

How I Feel About Dakota Reaching Her Milestones & Our Fav New Activity Mat by Tiny Love

*Thank you Tiny Love for sponsoring this post! I did receive compensation for my review of this product, but as usual, all opinions are my own and I do not endorse anything I do not absolutely LUV!

Because Dakota was born almost 2 months early, it’s been a little slower pushin’ over here on reaching some of her “milestones” than our other kids. Which is TOTALLY OK! For me, I’ve never put pressure on when my children sit, crawl, walk, give up their bottle (or binky) or worry when they’re going to stop needing things like their blanky or favorite stuffed animal in their backpack to get through the school day. “Pack that blanky in your backpack, baby!” These days are fleeting and the last thing I need is for them to grow faster than they already are! I know they won’t be taking their bottle or binky with them to college and they’ll be crawling/walking in no time. So, I’ll be honest, I just don’t worry about when their timing is to take that next step… no pun intended.

I’ll also say that I don’t believe that when a child sits, crawls or walks typically has any major indication as to their level of intelligence or their physical capabilities in their future (unless, of course, other conditions exist). I’ve learned through experiences from our first child, now to our third, that parents can put a lot of pressure on themselves as it pertains to their children’s milestones. For me, I say LET THEM BE LITTLE. And I embrace whatever pace my littles decide work for them.

An Update on My Life, The Loss of Others & How I Plan to Take on the New Year

Several weeks ago I lost a friend from college, who took his life tragically and unexpectedly. He was an exceptional human, the life of the party, a friend to many…

This past week I lost another friend. He hasn’t been part of my life since we were “kids”. But since learning a few days ago that he {also} took his life, only one month or so after my other friend, in the same tragic way… I have felt myself feeling cynical, angry, and of course, sad. As I’ve still been trying to process the death of my other friend, left with so many questions of how does something like this happen, I find myself constantly asking the question… How could these good people be choosing to take their own lives? Leaving behind children, parents, siblings, friends…

As we go into the new year, we’re all setting goals for ourselves. We want to lose some lbs, eat better, organize our homes, declutter our closets… We’re planning for all of the ways we can prioritize our physical selves and our outer circumstances. And pretty much everyone I’ve talked to has the same or similar goals and plans for the new year. Me, included.

All I Want to Do is Bake & Watch Christmas Movies with eBay

I don’t know about all of you but December hits (OK, maybe even in November) and all I want to do is bake and watch Christmas movies. I think it’s another reason I put my holiday decorations up so early bc I want to be able to enjoy all the things as much as possible when the holidays hit. One Christmas tradition we do every year, that was passed down by my Dad and his family before him… is make vintage-inspired Christmas cookies. My dad moved permanently to his Utah house last year, so we’re carrying out the tradition here without him. The cookies are named after his mom, my {middle} namesake “Lulu’s Christmas Cookies” (my middle name Louise, which was her name, and everyone called her “Lulu). I’m so grateful to have eBay to find all of the vintage accessories and tools I need to make these traditional cookies that are so special to us!
