May is National Water Safety Awareness Month and as we get closer to summer it is a sad fact that the warmer weather months (May-August) make up two-thirds of annual childhood drownings (according to Total Aquatics Programming data). That's why I am so proud to partner with Goldfish Swim School and share 5 water safety tips for parents and guardians to help keep kids safe this summer!
As a mom my days seem like a constant cycle of running errands, dropping off at school, picking up from school, dishes, laundry and "hey I just swept the floor". Hours can go by before I realize I skipped a meal or that the only thing I ate was whatever was leftover from my kids' breakfast or lunch. That's why I was so happy to discover Splendid Spoon! A ready to eat meal subscription service that is plant-based, vegan and GMO-free. Read on for my honest thoughts and how you can get $60 off your first three boxes.

Have you ever thought about homeschooling your child? Parents across the country are currently debating what course of schooling will be best for their children come the fall and many are considering homeschooling. Enter, Julia Groves. Julia, along with her mother, have written a book (the first of many) titled "A Beginners Guide for Homeschooling". Their aim is to help new homeschooling parents for success. I had the privilege to interview Julia and ask her, not only my questions about homeschooling but other mother's questions as well. To learn more about Julia's new book and to get some insight on what it means to be a homeschooling parent, read on!
I'm sure you've seen the same ads I have (for years) about FabFitFun and how "great" it is and how you get a box that has a value of $200 for $50 and blah blah blah. Well, I gave into peer pressure last year and signed up. The first box I received was FabFitFun's Fall 2019 box . What finally got me to sign up? This super cute Kate Spade lunch tote. I love Kate Spade and I thought the design of the lunch tote was really neat and no you cannot ask me how many times I've used it. Don't be rude. Anyway, lunch tote aside, I found that I really enjoyed my first box from FabFitFun so I decided to stick with it and I've since received their Winter 2019 box and the Spring 2020 box. I'll also get the Summer 2020 box in the coming weeks though I'm not sure if I'll continue beyond that. Being indecisive about wanting to continue with FabFitFun does not mean I didn't enjoy this experience. In fact, I think getting FabFitFun boxes has even taught me a few things about myself.
Since becoming a mom trips to the mall or the store in general have became a lot less relaxing. Gone are the days of being able to try on a bunch of clothes and spend hours in a fitting room in order to find the perfect outfit or pair of jeans. Prior to being pregnant I had seen commercials for Stitch Fix but thought there was no way their stylists could possibly find me clothes I like (that fit) based off of an online survey. After giving birth I was desperate for new clothes in my new postpartum size and I found a discount code that would waive the $20 styling fee, so I really didn't have anything to lose. Now I've ordered Fixes from Stitch Fix a few times and I've learned how to get the best out of them. That's why I'm sharing 4 tips on how to ensure your next Fix from Stitch Fix is your best one yet.
