Holidays with your family are made much sweeter with a few family traditions. Over the years we have incorporated a few Christmas traditions that we love, and I’d like to share a few more. The best part is that these are free! In my opinion, traditions don’t need to be expensive or grand, but simple and sweet. When you think about the best memories of your childhood, they are usually the times that you were most connected to the people you care about. It’s the hygge!

Here are five of my favorite Christmas traditions for families: {read more}

Try Stitch Fix Risk-Free

Hi guys! I wanted to post a quick update about the online clothing styling service Stitch Fix. (If you haven’t heard about Stitch Fix yet, start here to get all the details.)

Stitch Fix is waving the $20 styling fee for your first box now through November 30th! If you have always wanted to try the online fashion service, this is a great risk-free way to see what it’s all about. Maybe you are looking for something new to wear for the holidays? Or perhaps you could use a few more warm weather things as the temperature is dropping. Whatever your fashion needs, now is the time to give Stitch Fix a try. My favorite thing about this service is being able to try things on at home, in front of my own mirror, without that horrible dressing room lighting! {read more}

Are you new to Stitch Fix? Here’s the gist. Stitch Fix is a personal online clothing styling service for women. Put simply, a stylist personally selects five items for you and they are shipped to your house. You try on everything at home and keep what you want and return what you don’t in a prepaid envelope. It’s genius for those that don’t like to shop or just don’t have the time. It’s a great way to try new things too! {read more}

Summer Survival Series: Part Two

summer survival, boredom busters

We’re talking about summer with kids at home, and how you can survive!

Did you miss Part One?  Start here: Summer Survival Series: Part One

Part One of the Summer Survival Series involved making a simple daily schedule. My intention with this was to give the kids a general sense of the day and set expectations, as well as eliminate the constant ask for playdates and snacks.

So now that we have our daily schedule, what happens when we’re having a hard time figuring out how to use up some of that free time? Let me introduce the boredom buster jar.

Summer Survival Series: Part Two

The boredom buster jar is a simple jar with activities written on popsicle sticks. I used this jar as a reward for chores completed, and/or good behavior and attitudes. If we had a great day, the kids got to pick out something from the jar to do. (idea originally found at While He Was Napping) {read more}
