Live Your Best Life - Learn How You Can Live a Better Life in Seconds!


This post is sponsored by Activia but the content and opinions expressed here are my own. 

https://ooh.li/7536eab


Let's be honest, most days I'm struggling to make sure Delainey and I both have pants on and our hair brushed whenever we leave the house. I'm pretty much a mess, even if it's hidden under a layer of foundation and a cute dress. I think all mamas with a toddler at home can probably relate.

https://ooh.li/7536eab


She's going through this phase where she says "no" to almost everything, she has an opinion about things she never even minded previously, and on top of that, she's testing boundaries like it's her full time job. Basically, we've hit the terrible twos at 21 months old.

https://ooh.li/7536eab

It's equal parts amazing and challenging to watch her learning and growing, she's becoming such a sassy, independent soul that is fearless and awe-inspiring, yet she still needs to be with me anytime I'm behind a closed door. I guess this is what parenthood is all about... the sweet moments come along with the sass. I'm just learning to deal with my mini-me and it's eye-opening, no doubt.

https://ooh.li/7536eab


Speaking of eye-opening, I'm going to address something embarrassing... I've kind of let myself go as a mom... For a little bit there, I was eating what I wanted without regard, I wasn't sleeping much since I'm running the blog and Bloomology, and I hardly ever allowed myself time for me, I often share tips on how YOU can make time for yourself but I was having a real tough time taking my own advice... but now I'm working on that AND I'm not just saying that.

https://ooh.li/7536eab


Starting this month, I've made a real effort to take a few seconds for me... each and every day. Wondering how you can take just SECONDS from your busy day and literally change your life? Here's one way I've found to treat myself and I think you should try this as well.

https://ooh.li/7536eab


This goes without saying, but life is better when you learn to embrace the moment... sometimes that can be difficult without putting intention behind it. So lately I've been taking a deep breath and really taking in the view around me as I drink my Activia Probiotic Dailies.

https://ooh.li/7536eab


Whether I'm at the beach and sipping one of these beauties as part of my breakfast or I'm spending time on the patio after dinner and enjoying a "dessert" that helps my gut, I'm a huge fan of these Activia Dailies and recommend all mamas add this tastiness to their routine. I also think every mama needs to take a deep breath & learn to embrace the moment while enjoying their Dailies, it's just good practice! I've been doing this for two weeks and I've noticed a difference, in my body and my spirit.

https://ooh.li/7536eab

Are you in the same boat as me? Struggling with a tough toddler? Kinda feeling lost in motherhood? Start bettering your life with one tiny change at a time... adding Activia Dailies to your busy day and taking the time to take a deep breath shouldn't negatively effect what you're able to accomplish each day but it could help you be in the right mind to accomplish even more. So tell me, what do you do each day to better yourself?

The Baby Bird Boutique - Friday Drop Shopping Tricks & Tips!


This isn't news to you, but we're huge The Baby Bird Boutique fans.

http://TheBabyBirdBoutique.com/discount/delainey

D has been promoting the brand and wearing precious rompers, peplums, and dresses since she was tiny and  we will be lifelong supporters of the mama bird behind this shop who has been with us through so many milestones. She inspires so many and I'm just lucky enough to have had the chance to learn a little under her wing.

http://TheBabyBirdBoutique.com/discount/delainey


I've recently shared a few posts involving our favorite brand and dishing out the deets on mama bird, but you know what I've failed to do... TEACH you how to shop the brand.

http://TheBabyBirdBoutique.com/discount/delainey



Wait... what? I know you're thinking you know how to shop... but if you're new to this small shop, you should probably pay attention. The cuteness factor makes these babies sell like hotcakes... and I'm also going to share how you can snag some epic discounts.

http://TheBabyBirdBoutique.com/discount/delainey

First, let's chat about how to navigate the website - TheBabyBirdBoutique.com is where the magic happens. You'll want to be present at 10:00am central time, refreshing the website, and be ready to cart! If you want to get something, don't hesitate... I've had items PULLED out of my cart while checking out so be quick!

http://TheBabyBirdBoutique.com/discount/delainey


Navigating the site quickly is a little tricky though, only because Dorie has so graciously sorted the collections in a multitude of ways and when you're in a scramble to cart. This is fabulous if you are leisurely shopping, but on drop day, it's nice to have a clear path mapped out to get what you are wanting. The quickest way I've found to access the Friday "Drop" is to click on the "Drop" tab under the shop tab. That's where all the newbs will be hiding out and they are always AMAZING and often fly out of the store.

http://TheBabyBirdBoutique.com/discount/delainey


With that said, if you need a solid for an upcoming event or you're in a hurry to complete the perfect #ootd, then check out the other tabs and see what is in store. But, be mindful of the season and order accordingly, solids are only available in certain shades to coordinate with the season, so don't expect to snag your red white and blue during the fall. As for right now, you can get your hands on some of our favorites - including coral and turquoise and this weeks blue floral drop is TDF... so I suggest you go ahead and cart your solids before Friday's drop and have them ready & waiting for you to check out with the new blue floral!

http://TheBabyBirdBoutique.com/discount/delainey


Which leads me to my next BBB bit of advice - always spend $50+, then you save on shipping! I'm a firm believer on spending more on clothing than spending anything on shipping. I'm a goof like that... but surely I can't be the only one who feels this way? With that said, I know you're probably a huge fan of coupons as well... so don't forget you can  score an epic discount with the code DELAINEY!

http://TheBabyBirdBoutique.com/discount/delainey

Speaking of discounts, if you happen to be a member of The Baby Bird Boutique VIP page or following The Baby Bird Boutique page, you probably have noticed mama bird HOOKS US UP on the regular with discount codes... including flash sales and access to epic coupons regularly! If you aren't on the bandwagon yet, I suggest you "like the page" and join the group... these discounts are amazing and you'll often catch special sneak peeks of upcoming collections!

http://TheBabyBirdBoutique.com/discount/delainey


So tell me, what kind of Baby Bird Boutique posts would you like to see here on the blog in the future?

http://TheBabyBirdBoutique.com/discount/delainey


Also... this isn't necessarily related to carting your next The Baby Bird Boutique items, but if you're a fellow die hard BBB fan - it's time you consider repping for the best team ever. The Baby Bird Boutique is seeking new members for their rep team and your babe could be the next one. Check out the BBB instagram before 6/25 for all the details and follow the directions to a TEE to be entered for the chance to be a member of this epic team!

Save on Potty Training Essentials

This post is sponsored by Huggies, Pull-Ups, GoodNites but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.



As you probably already know... I pretty much have the best husband ever and frankly, I think D agrees most days.

https://ooh.li/1a68544


He does so much for D and I, it amazes me each time I see him do something thoughtful and helpful for our family. I don't know he does it, but on a daily basis I wonder how I got so lucky... and while I hope he feels the same way, I'm really hoping he'll like his little father's day present I decided to get him.

https://ooh.li/1a68544


After sending him on weekly trips to the supermarket to get diapers since D was a newborn, I decided to take it upon myself this month, in honor of Father's day... I'm stepping up and taking on the responsibility of grabbing the diapers and it's been so much easier than I could have imagined.

https://ooh.li/1a68544


I mean, don't get me wrong, I love buying from the local markets but buying from Amazon and having pull ups and diapers delivered next day (or at least with a couple of days) is so easy. The best part is you can save $3 by clipping the coupons on the site AND if you subscribe and save you'll snag another 20% off...


https://ooh.li/1a68544


So if you're a fellow toddler mama, grab your kiddos and get ready to save on their potty training essentials now!

Girl's Night Essentials!

This post is sponsored by Poise® but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

Let's get super awkward and real here...


https://ooh.li/578f8a1

 Mom life is tough... and so rewarding. It's the best thing I've ever experienced and also the most challenging, from staying up late at night soothing tummies to the wild mornings chasing her around, it never stops.... but she's so worth it.

I wouldn't trade her for the world, don't get me wrong. She's my everything... but I also wouldn't mind having a mom's night here or there or planning a girls weekend some day. 

While I'm over here daydreaming about my next adventure, I'm also being realistic and planning what I'm going to bring on this little vacation from parenthood. Funny thing is, the ticket isn't booked for our girls weekend yet and a mom's night is something I desperately need but also haven't scheduled yet.


So you're probably wondering, what's in my mom bag for my plotted mom's night?

Here's the scoop, I plan to pack the essentials and that's it. So I'll have some jewelry, my favorite pair of heels, a fun simple game to play with my besties, a few of my favorite sundresses... and Poise Contour fit, for those moments when I or someone in our group laugh a little too hard at our inside jokes and our mom bladders show how incapable they can be. LOL.

https://ooh.li/578f8a1

It's not fun to talk about, but it's a reality. One that Poise has nearly eliminated.

Are you a fellow mom who could use a getaway.. or maybe you're also feeling like you need to try Poise? Be sure you check out this coupon to make sure you save when you stock up on your essentials and lucky for you, it's almost all available at Walmart!
