Coola has been my go-to sunscreen for years. They have the best smelling sunscreen long-lasting sunscreen, and is super easy to apply. I love the makeup setting spray with SPF, too!

I've used the Glow Screen SPF + Primer on my face for over a year now and am obsessed. The slightly tinted lotion blends in easy, and leaves a light glow without glitter or shine. I use this on no makeup days alone or under my makeup as my primer and SPF. The body version is new. I can't wait to try it!


Urban Decay Setting Spray - The best setting spray you'll find to keep your makeup in place (even under a mask). 

Kiehl's Super Multi-Corrective Cream - This cream feels and smells super luxe. I've used it for years at night and have noticed a huge difference in the evening of my skin tone. 

Charlotte Tillbury Pressed Powder - I've only been using this about a month but love the way it makes my skin appear smooth without being drying or caked. I use the lightest shade, fair.

NARS Bronzer + Blush Duo with Brush - This is such a great set. Perfect for travel or anyone whose been wanting to try these NARS cult favorites without buying the full sizes. The Laguna Bronzer and Orgasm Blush colors work for so many different skin tones. 


I've been using this Oribe shampoo and conditioner for years. The gold lust line will make your hair feel super soft and smell amazing. I do rotate in my Olaplex shampoo and conditioner and even Moroccanoil hydrating shampoo and conditioner occasionally, but the Oribe is what I use most frequent.

Olaplex No. 3 is a must have for keeping your hair strong and healthy. This has been a staple in my haircare routine for years. If there's one thing to get at the sale, make it this!

Another staple in my routine is the Moroccanoil Protect & Prevent Spray. This is the perfect leave-in conditioner + protecting spray and smells AMAZING!

I've used these for both babies. They have the cutest color options and wash well. 

Gwens favorite is the pink ball. She loves to teeth on it. The others light up or rattle. 

This is great for teaching your babe to sit up. I feed Gwen her baby food in this right now.

I've used several wipeable bib brands but these are my favorite. They aren't quite as thick and stiff as other brands, so they are more comfortable my babes. 

I move this from room to room so I have a soft spot for Gwen to play. 

I bought this for Winston when he was smaller and it's been worth every penny. There are three different language options (English, Spanish, French). I use it now for Gwen with the legs off, and she crawls around it to press all the buttons and turn the music and lights on. As she grows and starts to pull herself up and stand, I'll add the legs back on. 

This is constantly on our most-used list. She'll nap or watch cartoons in this bouncer. The cover come off easy to wash and it lays flat for travel or storage.

A must-have teething toy. Fits perfecting in a babies arms. Both my kids have loved Sophie.

I swear by this sleep sack style after my babes are past the newborn stage. The Halo Sleep Sack is a wearable blanket, washes well and has a two-way zipper. 

I love that this activity gym is so darn cute, but it truly is so functional. Gwen will use it laying on her back on the playmate or I'll put it in front of her while in her bouncy chair

The shirt jacket (shaket) is everywhere now, in every price point, so I wanted to share a few of my favorite save and splurge picks with you, in case  you're looking to try one out, or need to add more to your closet. I'm wearing my favorite Ruby Jacket from Free People in these images and have it in several colors. It's a bit of a splurge but I've had my first one for years. They wash great and transition in to Spring and Fall perfectly. 




Save on these (all under $60)

When it's colder, I like to pair my shirt jacket with a thick sweater, and because it's oversized, even sweaters with bat sleeves fit. I throw this on over a midi dress in the Fall and Spring.

This gift guide is a compilation of my beauty favorites right now. I use each of these daily or weekly, and would recommend them to anyone (guys or girls with any skin or hair type). Please feel free to ask questions if you interested in something but are not sure before purchasing.

This is one of the newest products from FOREO and I'm obsessed. The BEAR a full-facial toning device with advanced microcurrents to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. My skin truly does feel firmer after using daily for about four weeks straight. Splurge-worthy for sure!!! P.s., there is also a mini version great for travel.
This tool will help exfoliate your skin, remove peach fuzz and leave your skin feeling silky smooth. I use mine about once every two weeks. I can tell a big difference after using it not just with the feel of my skin, but with how flawless my foundation goes on. Each tool comes with 10 blades. 

The smell of this shower oil is incredible. There's a reason why it's a bestseller and one is purchased every minute worldwide. Perfect for anyone in the family. Jared was the first person to start using this, and now I love it too. 

The ultimate luxury hand cream. It's one of my favorite scents ever. Truly a steal at $24 for a 2-pack right now. 

This is a highlighter that will make you glow without having any glitter or too much shimmer. A little goes a long way and there are a few color options. Champagne Pop is my shade. 

I try to use this once a week. Nothing makes my skin softer and my pores smaller than this mask. 

I have the Afterglow Lip Balm in several colors now. It's a pop of color with a sheer texture that is very hydrating. In the past I've had to use a lip primer before using color, but I don't have to with the Afterglow Lip Balm. You'll want to put one in every purse, I promise!

If you've been following me for a while, you know I'm an avid Olaplex user. I use these products weekly to repair the damage I've done with bleach and heat, and to strengthen my hair. Bonus, these make my hair softer and feel thicker!

This spray makes me feel like I'm at a spa. It's smells great, moisturizes and sets my make-up. 

On my wishlist. This roller is supposed to relax your face and give it a radiant glow. I'm definitely getting one this season and can't wait to try it out.

This gift guide includes so many products I'm already using with Gwen, and a few additional items that are on my list. Two products we use a lot, are the Baby Bjorn Bouncer and the Wood Activity Gym. These are both really great gifts for someone with a baby. They'll be able to use it from the newborn stage up to two-years-old. Bird Rock Baby Mocassins have been a family favorite ever since Winston was born. They have so many cute colors for boys and girls. Happy Holiday Shopping!

Winston is three and a half now, and we are so excited for him to not only understand the reason for the season, but also be able to open his own presents and help decorate the tree. Last year he still didn't completely understand, and would start to unwrap something and stop halfway. We're looking forward to seeing his eyes light up when he opens a few of these presents. I hope this gift guide helps you shop for your little one.

Gwen was born a week early, so the final touches on her nursery were put on hold for awhile. I have to say, this is one of my all-time favorite posts. The nursery is done, and it just might be my favorite room in the house. Everything is linked, and I hope you love it as much as we do!

I fell in love with these boho decals from Urban Walls, and knew we were going to reuse Winston's crib, so that's how I got started and decorated the room around those. A little boho glam is what I was going for. I have the full set of decals.

Acrylic and gold dresser knobs are Hamilton Bowes.

I've listed all parts purchased to assemble the hanging racks below. The only item I couldn't link, was the wood. I bought 36-inch long cherry oak boards, and cut them to fit my space. I chose the cherry oak, because it's super strong and won't crack as you drill into the wood. The boards are one inch thick and 12 inches deep. We cut each board to about 30 inches to fit the wall and allow a few inches on each side and a few inches in between the board. You can really used any wood. Don't feel like you have to use cherry oak. I'd steer clear of pine since it's so fragile and splits easily. It's worth the extra money for quality wood. 


Hanging Racks

I hope this gives new moms or anyone decorating a nursery a little bit of inspiration.
