When people say not to mess with a good thing, they must not know the potential of making a classic even more divine. I give you...MILKA OREO chocolate candy. You can thank me later, but I will go ahead and say "you're welcome my friend." The best part about these new treats is they are effortlessly delicious. The MILKA OREO Chocolate Candy Bar highlights the vanilla creme center with a little crunch and the MILKA OREO Big Crunch Bar focuses on a chocolate cookie center with a layer of creme, then rich European Milka chocolate on the outside. See why I said "you're welcome" already?!? So, whether you are an eat-from-the-inside-out sort of Oreo indulger or vice versa, you are covered and easily just as satisfied. Their MILKA OREO Choco-Mix combines mini chocolate and vanilla cookies with chocolate candies and morsels for the perfect on the go snack. I can't think of another way to describe them all other than effortless melt-in-your-mouth goodness.
You’re a 34 year old single mother of 3 children, one of them a newborn, all is good, or so you thought. Just months after he was born you’re starting to notice you’re having trouble carrying your own child. Your hands are on FIRE and it’s getting worse by the day! You notice a red rash on your face. After googling your symptoms you go to your doctors to get tested for what you think you are suffering from. It’s confirmed, you have LUPUS. Imagine you’re awake but not really there. You hear voices, but no one’s home. Then PITCH BLACK. You’ve passed out and you wake up in a hospital bed with no recollection of what had happened. You have amnesia and all you have to go by is what everyone else witnessed. You were told you screamed some obscenities and at times became violet. All things that are out of character for you. You can’t remember your kids' names and it takes a while to remember things. You can’t form words because of the stutter you’ve developed.
I was so full of so much excitement that I could hardly keep my mouth shut for the couple of days before her surprise. My daughter was turning 11 years old on the 11th~ her golden birthday! So we had decided to give her 11 cards throughout the day that had either a surprise gift or activity for her to enjoy on her special day. Oh, the anticipation! She was over the moon excited because unlike other years where she knew what would be going on, she loved the fact that she has no idea what she would be doing or the gifts that she may be receiving. I thought I would share with my She Is ladies what we did to give you some ideas on how to make the day special for someone in your life.
It's our one year blogiversary y'all! Not excited one bit though--hah! It's not just that I love to host a lovely event with friends, but wow, what a year it's been. I launched our website off the biggest heartfelt tug I've ever had and it was clear this was bigger than me. In comes a lot of prayers and the beautiful sisterhood part of this--I asked our writers to join in to offer different perspectives and passions to be shared. I love them. They are so giving of their heart, energy and time. Forever thankful for all they do!
Then there is you all! Every entry read, comment made, image liked, blog post shared by you has helped us grow to where we are at. Your support and encouragement will forever be held close in my heart. Thank you for being patient with us as we have grown along the way. You are the reason we work so hard and why we love what we do!
We are so excited for what is to come with the blog, store and our app we recently got up and running. It's all such a beautifully chaotic whirlwind and I wouldn't have it any other way. Now enough of my sappiness, here's a recap of our celebration held at the Kendra Scott store at Hyde Park Village in Tampa. Make sure to read all the way to the bottom to get the details about our event partners and our giveaways!

After a long day of doing all things that involve Mommying such as pumping every few hours for the baby, making food for my toddler who then refuses to eat it, trying to fold the baskets of laundry that have been starring me in the face all day and sterilizing bottles....I absolutely love bath and pamper time. It allows me to take a step back from the busyness of mom life and enjoy the reason I'm a mom--my kids.
I recently was introduced to SoCozy's Hush sensitive line, dermatologist and allergy tested products for your littles. Tangles, bedhead and frizzies are no match for their easy to use formulas. That, along with the fact that everything is non-toxic has this momma in pure happiness mode. Oh wait, ready for more bliss? You can only get their Hush Sensitive Styling Foam, Sensitive 2 in 1 Shampoo & Conditioner, Sensitive Detangler. and Sensitive Scalp Serum in the baby aisle at Target. If *wink* you needed another excuse to take a trip there, this is it!
Spring is just around the corner--eeek! The flowers are blooming, a beautiful breeze is in the air, amazing prints and pastels come back to our lives. Spring is my favorite time of the year and my favorite season for fashion. There are so many different styles to choose from and so many fun ways to mesh different colors and patterns together.
For instance, a beautiful flowy off the shoulder shirt and a simple pair of jeans or a black and white skirt. Dress it up this spring or keep it nice and cool. Always remember, you got this girl and you are fearfully and wonderfully made no matter what size, shape, or color you are. Be confident, be bold, be BRAVE, be fearless! Here are a few of my spring picks from the amazing Gwynnie Bee clothing rental company and Eloquii fashion line! I hope you love them as much as I do!
Gwynnie Bee is clothing rental site, but don't let that be a turn off for you. The quality, excellence and care they have for their clothes is majorly outstanding.

Here's what was in my first box...

There is something so refreshing about spring--the snow melts away with flowers taking it's place, the temperatures warm up equaling more adventures and...spring cleaning! I know, I know, normally you hear the word "cleaning" and want to run the other direction, but when it comes to sprucing up your kids wardrobes, that is in a whole different category! It's time to pack away all the heavy layers of pieces with far too many buttons and zippers, trading them for light, airy tees and shorts like these from OshKosh B'Gosh!
As a first time mom you have a huge shower, and receive everything you need for your bundle of joy. The second time around you've kept everything and struggle with putting stuff on your sprinkle registry so you throw a new hair brush, some pacifiers, and towels and call it a day. Some of my favorite gifts were non-traditional gifts that I received from friends and family that helped us in those first few weeks of being new parents again. These gifts will make the new parents life easier, give them a chance to bond as a family, and most importantly relax.
You know that old saying, "don't judge a book by it's cover?" Well, despite how much we would like to be able to tell everyone we meet our story right then and there to see the whole picture, we are more complex than that, and people do judge us from their initial glance at us. We are people with layers and substance, often taking time to develop relationships before spilling the beans of our life story. Today though, I challenge you to share of yourself a little faster, letting the walls down, as you never know if the person on the other side needs to hear it.
One way I've found to make this easier is to rock a cute, inspirational tee. It tells a little bit of your story from the get go and opens the door to conversation that could start a valuable friendship, be the light in someone's day or inspire someone to choose positivity. We hope you enjoy a few sneak peeks from our app on the way soon as we share about these incredible tee companies we adore! Huge thanks to 139 Made, Thread Tanks, Ascent 516, BEcoming Threads and Wholeheartedly for partnering with us on this journey of inspiration<3
I recently became a full time work at home momma--insert happy dance! This called for an office space closer to the kiddies so I can work along side them throughout the day, so I moved my desk out to one of our living rooms. We have a pretty good work-play-work-play routine going and because of this, they let momma get a lot work done in between our quality moments spent together.
Almost every room in our house has a gray shade on the walls and my favorite accents are gold or light teal to go along with. Our house is definitely a cozy space with a light and airy feel, this new space blending perfectly. I hope you love this office space remodel and I know you'll adore our featured companies--Graphique de France, Tiny Prints, Allison Bradley Prints and Moxyo.
