My son and I love snacks, however I tend not to buy them! When I buy snacks my son likes, they are gone in a matter of days, even when I buy in bulk! It’s just a waste of money when I try to buy snacks in bulk and they only last a day or two. There are also those rare times when I find snacks we both like.

Create A Comfortable Workspace

I have worked from home or been a stay at home parent for years. I have worked outside of the home too. However, as a special needs parent, I have always preferred to be a stay at home parent. Now that I am a single mom, I have to be a stay at home parent and work from home. With the novel Coronavirus, many people are working from home too! It’s taken a toll on everyone. I am so excited to show you simple ways to create a comfortable workspace!

I work from home from my laptop. I don’t have a desk. Instead, I use our dining table. Since I use a laptop, I started noticing my neck and back were hurting. I even tried elevating my laptop with a stack of hardcover books. It was a nice improvement.

The Best Ideas To Create The Ultimate Family Backyard

Your backyard is nice. You have pretty landscaping, quality furniture, maybe a pool, maybe sports areas. The lawn is green, and everything is clean and tidy. And yet, you think you might want to take things up a notch and create something really memorable. Here are some ideas to help take your backyard from “very nice” to “ultimate.” Let’s create the ultimate family backyard!

The Best Ideas To Create The Ultimate Family Backyard

Water Features

Nothing says opulence like cascading water. A fountain or waterfall not only adds dramatic visual flair, it also gives you that lovely splashing, bubbling background sound. If you add a waterfall to a pool, the flip of a switch transforms your pool setting from smooth and placid to dynamic and exciting. Build in a water slide, for endless fun for the kids. The possibilities are endless, including everything from hot tubs that spill into the pool, to elaborate multi-level water creations that wind their way through your entire yard.

I feel so grateful to share so many products and brands with you! I also appreciate the chance to share them with friends and family. Currently, I like sharing beauty products with my neighbor!

When my son started breaking out, I didn’t want to turn to prescriptions either. Trying to get a doctor’s appointment during quarantine is very difficult. Instead, I wanted to try natural, cruelty free, and toxin free options. I’ve been using a line of natural and cruelty free products for his breakouts and other teen issues!

When You Have Lost Yourself

When You Have Lost Yourself
Beauty Brite Disclosure

When you finally realize that at some point you have lost yourself. Where do you go to pick yourself back up and start again?

As I look in the mirror the tired eyes look back at me. Dark circles from being up and down all night with a three year old who refuses to sleep in her own bed. My hair loosely tied back with two days worth of dry shampoo. Slouchy clothes, from years before no where close to fitting.

You hear the bigger kids in the other room arguing over who’s watching the tv. You sigh and wash your face as you try to steel yourself for another day. Take a deep breath and do it all over again.

When you have lost yourself

You have lost yourself.

I love my kids, they are the reason I breathe every day but sometimes there are days where the arguing from them drives me up the wall, or they won’t eat dinner after I’ve worked hard to make it. Or when you are just completely touched out. And then the mom guilt kicks in and I feel horrible for feeling that way.

I have four kids ages 9 to 3. There is never a dull moment in my household. I wouldn’t trade it for anything. But I have realized that I had lost myself somewhere in the midst of being a mom. That was who I had become, I was mama, there was no Kansas any longer. My identity revolved around that role.

Brooklyn Cardigan

After so long not taking care of myself I decided it was time to find me again. I started with looking for some functional clothing that helped me be comfy but also look nice and that’s when I found the beautiful Duffield Lane line of clothing. I think my favorite item is the Brooklyn Cardigan. This beautiful Cardigan is so soft and goes with any outfit to keep you warm and looking stylish.

Blaine Dress

And I think my favorite dress that they make is the stunning Blaine Dress. I love how it goes with everything. You can dress it up or pair it down. Perfect for church or a PTA meeting. This dress is flattering on any shape, even mine and it’s hard to find self-love after carrying and birthing four kids. If you are interested in finding your perfect fit or style check out their website, Facebook, or Instagram.

It’s not always easy learning to take care of yourself again. Just know that you are worth it. If you can’t take care of yourself and put your mental health first, it’s going to make it hard to put that into your home. As mom’s, we tend to feel like we have lost yourself and put everyone but yourself first. So mom to mom just let me say…

YOU MATTER!

You are WORTH it.

You are doing an amazing job momma, keep your head up!

You haven’t lost yourself!

I am a single mom to a teen with Autism and I am raising him all on my own. When he was in school, that gave me a chance to run errands, go to appointments, etc. It was nice having alone time to get things done while he was at school. I also used that time to go for a walk throughout the day! It was cool enough in the morning and the fresh air was uplifting!
