Hey there…Mom Tribe, Mom Community, my social media followers + friends…where were you? How is it that over 80% of you own a HaaKa, and yet I’m the last to know about it? Its okay, I forgive you! This blog post is for all the new moms, those expecting, and those like me who are just looking for better pumping solutions! Pregnant? Attending a baby shower soon? Buy the Haakaa right now….you won’t regret it!
It’s seriously the coolest must-have! The Haakaa is a silicone breast pump that is award winning, best-selling, and nursing mom and lactation consultant recommended. Its easy to CLEAN and USE! Simply suction to your breast and let the pump do the work for you as it draws your milk using suction. Attach the pump while your child is feeding on your other breast and collect all let down and milk which would other wise be lost into a breast pad (again, mom tribe…where were you when I was exclusively pumping the first 2 months of my son’s life). This would of been a lifesaver for my overnight pumping sessions, feedings or when I was engorged during the day as my milk supply adjusted to my baby’s needs. It is so much easier than cleaning all the pump parts and being attached to cords of an electronic pump. The HaaKaa is a must for long distance trips, planes, car rides or anywhere you would like to pump silently and quickly! Leave a comment if you have any questions, but this mama over here highly recommends the HaaKaa!

I’ve been dreaming of doing a Mommy & Me photo-shoot with flower crowns ever since my daughter was born. There’s something a little magical and pure about a mother & her young daughter wearing delicate flowers crowns. Mason & Harlow made our beautiful matching crowns which we recently featured in our family photo-shoot with Carly Landolt Photography. I will forever cherish these photos of us. Its been just the two of us for 3.5 years, and as a mother, I am just nervous for all the changes a new baby will bring. Lately, there have been moments daily where I just embrace the hugs + giggles between us girls. I know we won’t have this unlimited time together for long. And, there’s nothing better in the world than feeling a child’s unconditional love for you. For the next ten weeks, you’ll find me soaking in all the extra love from my daughter! Her heart is pure. Her laugh is contagious. My hope is that my daughter will always knows how special and loved she is…she will always be my baby.
My Dress: ASOS Maternity
Flower Crowns: Mason + Harlow
Daughter’s Dress: Bowfish Kids
‘Tis the season for winter sleep suits! The temperatures have already hit below freezing & if you’re anything like me, you prefer to sleep with the window cracked open for some fresh air. However, I can’t always rely on my toddler staying warm under the blanket. Luckily, ergoPouch sent me some of their newest SleepSuits for my daughter! First of all, I love that the company is Australian (I studied a semester abroad in College) and I would love to travel back down under one day. Secondly, I love how the SleepSuit converts from a sleeping bag to a sleep suit with legs using 4 way zippers. And third, their designs are so cute!
ergoPouch offers a diverse range of fashion forward, high quality baby swaddles, sleeping bags and sleep suits made from breathable natural fibres including organic cotton, bamboo and merino. We all know babies sleep better in natural fibres for the simple reason that they improve breathability and keep a little one’s body at an even temperature. ergoPouch is perfect for all seasons without the need for blankets. Whether you’re swaddling a newborn or have a toddler on the move (like me), there is an ergoPouch to give your family a safe and comfortable night’s sleep.
Just check out below how happy my daughter looks waking up in her sleep suit! She fits perfectly in their Sleepsuit Bag (8-24 month sizing), and we love the pink Dandelion color. I can’t wait to gift some of their products to my new mommy friends.
Talk about a headache & a half! I taught myself how to design a website on squarespace.com this week. But now I’m obsessed! My friend over at Geekadelphia.com actually recommended Squarespace to me a few months ago. After searching for his email for the name/link he mentioned, I decided to give it a try since they offer a free trial. Squarespace gives you everything you need to design an amazing website (Domains. Hosting. Analytics. 24/7 Support included).
To my surprise, I found the whole web-designing process a lot of fun. The OCD in me could not commit to choosing a complimentary wedding website template….Therefore, I have had 2 options: beg my cousin for his help or teach myself how to do it!
I went for it!
Buying a website domain on namecheap.com was the easy part. After searching & choosing a simple (and unused) domain name, the rest of my time was spent structuring & adding content to our new wedding website. In the last 24 hours, I have already invested 4+ hours designing our site. It’s so much fun. I’d rather teach myself how to do something new then watch reruns of Real Housewives of OC! Seriously, when is Beverly Hills coming back on? #RHOBH
Wedding guests, stay tuned for the finished product. The website will be included on our Save the Dates!
