After yearsssssss of begging us to take her to @legolandflorida, we finally made it! {Hosted} This was Falynn’s 7th birthday trip. I have so much to say about our experience. But first, I have to go through over 1,000 photos 🤦🏻‍♀️. Does anyone else take way too many pictures on family vacations?

In 2017, tired of my debilitating anxiety disorder, I went to see a new doctor. She was sure my anxiety was the result of a medical condition. After routine bloodwork, I was told I had a vitamin D deficiency. But that’s it. I left without any more answers than I walked in with. It wasn’t until 2 years later when my friend DM’ed me to tell me that she and a friend (who both suffer from anxiety) had the same results, that I began thinking there must be a connection between anxiety and vitamin D deficiency. Today on the blog, I’m sharing why some studies show that a lack of vitamin D could be linked to anxiety and depression. I think what I found will surprise you. If you suffer from anxiety and/or depression, have you ever been told you’re vitamin d deficient? .

Let’s talk about family vacations... #gifted I struggled for years with the amount of time it took to pack up to go back home. There were always dirty clothes all over the floor and while I tried to pack it all into those hotel provided plastic laundry bags, 1) they were plastic and we are trying our best to do better for our planet and 2) they rip so easily, so we often wound up with dirty clothes spilling out in the car (yuck). A couple of months ago, I was watching a friend’s Instagram stories and she was talking about the @swoopbags she uses for her son’s toys. I immediately had an idea and knew I had to get one. 
On our last vacation, I opened up my large swoop bag and left it flat in the corner of our hotel room. We used it as our “laundry corner”. We instructed the kids (and ourselves) to drop our dirty laundry in the middle of the flattened Swoop bag. When it was time to pack up, I just swooped the bag, tied it and voila… it literally saved me all of the aggravation of finding and picking up all of the clothes and trying to find something to carry it all in. Don’t forget to check out the blog for more family travel hacks and a quick video on how I fit all 5 of our clothing into one small suitcase! I put the link in my bio! .

Growing up, I always wanted a sibling. I wished over every star and every birthday candle. I even asked my magic eight ball constantly if I would ever have one but as many times as it told me “all signs point to yes”, I remained an only child. I look forward to the days when my three girls appreciate that they have best friends for life... two women who will always have their back, lend them a hand or provide a shoulder to cry on. In the meantime, I make sure to create fun reasons for them to “work” together without bickering. So, I’m excited to announce that Iyla and Falynn are starting a new venture together, @thesuperkidlife and I hope you’ll follow along and show them some love. Although I will run the IG page for them for now, Iyla will be in charge of content and stories, so you’re in for a treat! They already have their first sponsored posts lined up! Stay tuned. . .

Thrift Store DIY Frida Kahlo Costume

We love Halloween because it’s an opportunity for our girls to express their individuality and personality! Since buying a ready-made costume can get pretty pricey and limit you to only a handful of options, I challenged our teenager to create her own costume, using only pieces found at our local thrift store. I was pleasantly surprised to see that she was able to put together this DIY Frida Kahlo costume for under $5! Now that’s a great deal.

Frida Kahlo, born Magdalena Carmen Frida Kahlo y Calderon, was born in July of 1907 and was an incredible Mexican painter, known mostly for her self-portraits and portraits inspired by nature and Mexican artifacts. As a mother of three daughters, it’s so important for me to teach my girls about strong, talented women who were able to turn their dreams into success. I love that Lucia chose to honor Frida Kahlo and her own Hispanic heritage by choosing this particular costume as one of her looks. I am so proud of her.

What You’ll Need for Your DIY Frida Kahlo Costume

Colorful Dress: Until Lucia found this dress, she wasn’t sure what her 2nd DIY costume was going to be.  But as soon as she found it, the colorful, fun nature of it immediately reminded her of Frida Kahlo. She was able to find this adorable floral dress for only $4.99.

Jewelry: In the majority of Frida Kahlo’s photos, she is wearing long earrings and a thick gold chain. Lucia had these pieces in her jewelry box already.

Floral Headband: Frida Kahlo almost always had flowers in her hair in her photos. You have a couple of options here. You can either buy some synthetic flowers at your local craft store or find a headband with flowers already on it.  Lucia had this particular headband already.

Makeup: Clearly it would have been a better idea to create a unibrow with a brown/black eyebrow pencil, but since Frida Kahlo didn’t actually have a unibrow, she just chose to accentuate it in her self-portraits, and because she’s a teenager and doesn’t want that photo on the internet, Lucia chose to draw thick eyebrows vs. the unibrow. She also chose a deep red lipstick.

She did a great job with her DIY Frida Kahlo costume, didn’t sh? Make sure to check out her DIY Thrift Store Kim Possible Costume as well!

An inexpensive and fun costume idea. We got everything we need for a DIY Frida Kahlo costume at our local thrift store for less than $5.
