Thank you Olay for sponsoring this post.

Hey all how are you doing?! I spent the weekend organizing like crazy and trying to stay busy and keep up with work at home! Not always the easiest with 3 distractions (hi Atticus, Rosie, and Frankie).I wanted to share more about the serum I have been using the last couple weeks! I posted on insta that I was going to be using the Olay Wrinkle Correction Serum with Vitamin B3 + Peptides and have been using it morning and night! I absolutely love using serums – I use them religiously. 1. Because I notice a difference with my skin when I use serums and 2. I love how my make up looks overtop a serum! It somehow adds an extra glow to your face! Above are unretouched pictures of me with no makeup and just the Olay serum and then one with my makeup overtop the serum!

With schools out we now have lots of entertaining to do with the kiddos! I shared these Pokemon cards that Atticus colored and thought I would share them on here for anyone else who wants to do this with their Pokemon obsessed kiddos! We sent this to our cousins too and they all colored them and then we all compared Pokemon so you could always do Zoom pokemon battle play dates along with it 😉

To make these David got a blank template and then googled each character and dragged them over in Adobe Illustrator! Lucky to have a hubby who enjoys doing and making fun things with the kiddos. Enjoy xo

*a note from David, these blank cards are made to scale of the actual Pokemon cards, but if your printer has any margin settings on it by default, it might shrink them to fit those margins, so just remove all margins when printing;)

Two of my favorite times of the day are waking up to the morning light in our home and coming out to a clean kitchen and enjoying a simple morning with my fam, and when the kids are asleep and the house is quiet and clean because that means it’s time to relax, catch up on work, and enjoy time with David. Lately I have been doing “turn down service” for me and David hehe which means before we go put the kids down I close all the shades, take the “decorative pillows off the bed, turn the lamps on, get ice waters for us, and turn on our diffuser with a relaxing scent. We used the new aromatherapy blend Forest Therapy last night, – it’s inspired by the new trend of Forest Bathing, which is about improving your overall happiness by getting outdoors and enjoying nature..

Did you see my first round of clues yesterday to unlock the first key to my secret project? If you followed along, it is time to reveal the word. The word was dawn. Dawn means the first appearance of light in the sky before sunrise. The beginning of a phenomenon or period of time, especially one considered favorable.

New Zealand was such a dream. Like truly one of our favorite family trips to date!!! When I was almost done with our itinerary I had asked followers to share recommendations so I compiled all the most recommended things to do and see below. Also in this post I will be sharing  also my travel itinerary. The thing is, I adjusted the first half to what we would have done differently – so our time in the North island is altered a bit and I added on a couple days. The time on the South Island is our EXACT itinerary. You could of course adjust and spend an extra day here or there and take away time somewhere else or skip a spot all together. A couple things I really wish we had time for in South Island were Milford Sounds and Abel Tasman! Hope you enjoy!

There is something so exciting about holiday hair. As the holidays approach, it is the perfect time to get creative with your hairstyles. Why not add some sparkle or color with different hair accessories? I am loving these clips and this scrunchie I used, they are so fun. I wanted to show how you can use the same hair accessories but accomplish completely different styles with them. I posted some of these images recently on my instagram. What style do you like most, the bun, half up

I showed you guys this UNBOUND Cordless Auto Curler from Conair the other day when I was on my way to church and wanted to show you a full tutorial on here with photos! It is a cordless auto curler that you charge and can take with you to curl your hair anytime, anywhere. It’s so easy to use – just place a 1-inch section of hair into the ceramic curl chamber, then press the button. This automatically draws your hair in and heats from all sides. Just wait for the beep, release and repeat to reveal the most perfect curls or waves. The device has anti tangle protection so you can do it knowing your hair won’t get tangled!
