Whenever I hear "leave in conditioner" I roll my eyes because as a mom of 2 under 2 I do not have time for that. But then I saw L'Oreal Paris Elvive Rapid Reviver Deep Conditioner only takes 60 seconds. That means I could use my shampoo, put in the conditioner go about my shower and wash out the conditioner while still in there without having to get out and go back.
I am very excited to let you all know about a new joint venture between myself and two other wonderful bloggers! Mid-Atlantic Moms On-The-Go. We are going to be sharing all things Mom Life and to celebrate the launch we are holding a giveaway!
I don't fancy myself to be a "food blogger" by any means but every once and a while I do find a recipe that seems to get some love from friends that I figure I can share with you all. The recipes that I do share are very simple and contain very few ingredients. There is nothing I hate more than when I'm reading through a recipe and find that I have to buy an ingredient (or two) that I've never used before and will probably never use again. This is not that recipe.
Recently we took a trip out to visit Grand Canyon National Park and we had our double stroller in tow. I know what you're thinking, "you can't possibly see the Grand Canyon with a double stroller" but I am here to tell you YES YOU ABSOLUTELY CAN!
I love taking pictures. I always have. At family functions often times it was my set of pictures from the event that were being shared and printed. I take multiple shots, I try multiple angles, I zoom in & out. When I can't be behind the camera I get, admittedly a bit bossy or critical of photos and how they are being taken. But, let's be honest, nothing beats a professional photographer's photos. Be it their camera, their editing skills, their "eye" what have you, professional photographers can make my at-home applied makeup look goooooood. When you have a baby you suddenly become paparazzi snapping photos on your phone at all hours of the day but what do all of these photos have in common? You aren't in them!
I kept seeing KidBox ads on Facebook so I finally decided to give it a go because what did I have to lose? Unlike Stitch Fix there was no styling fee so if I didn't like any of the items I could send them ALL back in their pre-paid shipping bag and be done with it. And that is exactly what I did.
Put your hair up in the air and head to Trolls the Experience in NYC while you still can! If you (I mean, your kids, of course) loved the Trolls movie and/or are digging Netflix's new series Trolls: The Beat Goes On and you CANNOT wait for Trolls 2, Trolls the Experience is for YOU (your kids, obviously).
Alternative Ways to Dye Eggs
I love traditions and one of my favorite Easter traditions is dyeing eggs! I never really thought about how messy dyeing eggs with a toddler could get or how bad vinegar might be to little toddler eyes. Not to my surprise I found toddler-friendly ways to dye eggs o Pinterest and I just had to try them out (of course).
Spring is finally springing (in most places) and that means Easter is almost here! Leading up to Easter, the Disney Store is holding a Magical Egg Hunt inside their stores across the country. This event is perfect for those of us who can't get to WDW or Disneyland to search for eggs inside the parks.
I've mentioned this before. I like the Kar-Jenner family. I enjoy watching Keeping up with the Kardashians and I don't see any shame in any of their game. I find them to be pretty relatable (minus their multi-million dollar homes and the like) because they fight, they have things that get them down, and they like to be silly. They just have a higher budget than most but that doesn't make them unlikeable, in my opinion. Kim was incredibly open about her struggles during her two pregnancies and why she decided to have a surrogate with her 3rd and now her 4th child. While she may not register at Buy Buy Baby she did have a baby shower prior to Chicago being born and she has said she is planning on having another baby shower prior to her new baby being born (rumored to be due in May).
