As someone that has suffered with both anxiety and depression for many years, I can tell you that there are signs that your loved one is suffering. While not everyone who exhibits these characteristics is having mental health issues, it's quite possible that those who are, exhibit many symptoms as a result of their anxiety and/or depression. Today on the blog, I’m discussing those symptoms and what to look for if you suspect you or your loved one is suffering with anxiety and/or depression. .

#ad Let’s get real for a moment. While they play a large part in us becoming Mothers, periods are no fun. They also weren’t something that I knew a whole lot about up until a couple of months ago, if I’m being honest. But results from a recent survey got my attention.  3 in 5 women surveyed reported at least one symptom of heavy periods – and among those respondents, over half had not discussed them with a doctor (57%) Why? Most women have resigned to heavy periods as their reality, with 43% saying “it’s just normal for me” and 36% saying “I’ve just learned to live with it.” Sound familiar? I must have said those exact statements plenty of times over the last 30 years.

Thinking back to last month and our stay in that cute little airbnb, it makes me so grateful for the opportunity to blog full-time. Not only do I get to work closely with companies that I love, but occasionally I get the opportunity to take our family on a little, but much needed vacation. It really is the best job I’ve ever had. Today on the blog, I’m continuing my series for bloggers and influencers and discussing what might be the scariest part of this job… pitching companies and applying to campaigns. Head over and check out my suggestions to nail those pitches. I look forward to hearing your thoughts! .

Thinking back to last month...

Today I had a plan. Wake up early, get the girls ready for their first day of school and then take the perfect first day of school picture to post on Instagram, where I would talk about how bittersweet it is to watch my girls grow up into these incredible young women. 
But things don’t always go as we plan. Instead, Falynn and Iyla woke up at 3:30am, got ready for school and then came downstairs at 5:00am to let us know they were ready. 5:00am... two and a half hours before they actually needed to be at school. I rolled myself out of bed at around 6:50am, Super Dad made me some coffee and I quickly shooed them outside so I could take a picture and realized that Falynn was in a long sleeved shirt, a jacket, jeans and old sneakers. I’m pretty sure her hair wasn’t brushed either. Lucia wasn’t awake yet so it would be the first year without a first day of school picture of all three of them. 😫 Whatever. I was tired. So I quickly took a picture (swipe to see) and got them off to school. Lucia woke up late and I couldn’t take a picture of her because my camera lens kept fogging up. When we walked back into the house, the dog escaped, making her even later. 🤦🏻‍♀️ And my coffee’s cold. Anyway, since I couldn’t get the perfect first day of school picture, I hope you enjoy this shot of the girls and Super Dad in their @swimzip.

My girls are snackers. When they get home from school, they want to be able to grab a quick snack to take with them on the way to after-school activities, or to enjoy while they do their homework. #ad Peanut Butter is a huge hit in our home, but it can get messy, so when I found out about Windstone Farms Creamy Peanut Butter Portable Packets, I couldn't wait to grab some. Instead of making a huge mess (and forgetting to close the lid) with a regular container of peanut butter, the girls can grab one packet and easily add it to just about anything. Some of our favorites are bananas, apples, pretzels, celery or crackers. They have fun creating new combinations and I love that they come in convenient 1.15oz squeezable packets. So much less mess! They are also perfect for their lunchboxes. The peanut butter is so creamy and delicious! BTW, they are naturally gluten-free! @windstonefarms peanut butter packets are now available at your local @walmart. Make sure to pick some up, and check out our stories for a special offer from Ibotta! What will you put #WindstoneFarmsPB on?

When people find out that I’m a full-time blogger, the first thing they always ask me is what a typical day looks like. #sponsored My answer usually includes one or more of the following words: crazy, busy, hectic, long and almost always includes either my laptop or my phone, in my face. By the end of the day, my eyeballs are exhausted and I can’t wait to get to sleep (as soon as I check my phone one last time). So at the risk of sounding vague and having people believe that I am just playing around on social media all day long, I thought it would be fun to show you what a day in the life of this super mom blogger is like…. Summer edition (because when the girls are in school, it’s a lot more hectic) as well as how I help my eyes filter blue light, thanks to @quantumnatural.

AD: Back-to-school time is a favorite in our house. I'm excited to get back to the daily peace and quiet, and the girls are excited to get back to their friends! While our excitement lies in very different places, one thing we can always agree on is that it's super fun to shop for back-to-school supplies. Especially when we can do it from the comfort of our own home! After going to multiple stores last year and not being able to find a school approved backpack for Lucia, this year, we made the smart move and got it (and her wireless headphones) on @eBay. They offer a money back gurantee, FREE shipping, save your gas ⛽️ and time ⏰ and do your back-to-school shopping on eBay this year! #eBayBackToSchool #HappeningOnEBay #eBay https://lnk2.io/wytbcWl

Something My Teenager and I Can Agree On

If You Love It, Share It!

When I was growing up, I always dreamt of having a little girl. I wanted to dress her up, do her hair and take a million pictures of her that we could one day look back on and oooh and aaah. I imagined that when she got to a certain age, we would share clothing and shoes, do each other’s hair and makeup and be the best of friends. And while I was lucky enough to be blessed with three girls, things don’t always work out the way we plan, right?

At some point between the first day of 5th grade and like 2 days later, my oldest daughter, Lucia, went from borrowing my shoes, to wearing 2 sizes bigger than me. I’m not even kidding. Her feet just didn’t get the memo that she was in elementary school and she was suddenly wearing a size 9 before I could blink. How did my little girl suddenly get so big? Obviously, sharing shoes was no longer an option.

While I was always pretty thin, once I had kids, my body decided to go another direction (wide) and I’ve had such a hard time losing the weight. So, my size 4 teenager and I won’t be sharing clothing anytime soon (unless she’s looking for an oversized jacket or tee). Obviously, sharing clothing was no longer an option either.

While Lucia and I are close, I feel like we missed out on that fun sharing stage. You know, the stage when she borrows my things without asking and I tell her to put them back but secretly I’m excited that I’ll have double the options? I mean, she does borrow my makeup and I do have to remind her to give it back, but it’s just not the same.

Luckily, no matter what our size differences, there is one thing that we can still share… jewelry!

So when I was contacted by Victoria Emerson, I did a happy dance. Beautiful jewelry that we could choose together, share and look fashionable!

Victoria Emerson inspires women to celebrate the joy in the everyday, and to share their sparkle with the world! Celebrating independence and strength, their line of hand made accessories adds a spark to any woman’s outfit. Created in 2012, they introduced a line of bracelets that were made for every woman. Since then, they’ve grown into a full line of accessories and goodies!

They offer a beautiful variety of wraps, cuffs, necklaces and watches. When it came time to choose our accessories, the list was long. It was so hard to choose only a few pieces because they are all so stunning. We decided to go with options that would match most of our wardrobe. For Lucia, her favorite colors are yellow and aqua, so she chose a double wrap and a mini boho bracelet. I tend to wear a lot of darker colors, so I chose the double wrap in white and a boho bracelet. Just for the record, I’ve already asked permission to borrow hers.

The pieces come in beautiful packaging, ready for gift giving. Each piece is made so beautifully and is stamped with the Victoria Emerson name. For me, an accessory is all about the details and these Victoria Emerson pieces did not disappoint. The clasps are so sturdy and they really do sparkle!

Finally, there is one thing that my teenage daughter and I can agree on and share! #sponsored @VicEmerson

Now that we know that we have similar taste in jewelry, we’ve already discussed what we want to pick up next from Victoria Emerson!  I love that you can wear them individually or pair them up for a bolder look. It’s amazing what a little sparkle can do for an outfit, no matter how casual. Now is a great time to check out Victoria Emerson. All wraps are $19.99 and all boho cuffs are $24.99 now through  Monday, June 17, 2019!

Now, let’s hope my other two daughters don’t grow quite as quickly.

Do you share your clothing or accessories with your kids? I’d love to hear what your experience has been like! Comment below and tell me.

Add sparkle to any outfit with this beautiful line of jewelry from Victoria Emerson. They offer a beautiful variety of wraps, cuffs, necklaces and watches. #sponsored @VicEmerson

    The joy of sharing and swapping dresses or shoes with your daughter must be akin to a father and son swapping shirts. But yes things do not always go this way. But there are many things one can share like jewelry and watches and stuff like that.

    Sharing with your teen daughter is tough because she wants to have her own style and stuff. I have borrowed some of her clothes and she hates when i do this but we do have some of the same tastes.
