A Nautically Inspired Spring by Wayfair

As we've just celebrated my family's second spring in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, I'm still feeling as though we're on some type of coastal vacation living here. It's a gorgeous town that I can't help Instagramming, and this spring while our trees have yet to fully blossom, I'm feeling inspired by the warm sun that fills our fishbowl windows and the brightly painted buildings in downtown Portsmouth.

Help Transform Lives This Mother's Day with Vera Bradley

Do you have dedicated tote bags in your home like I do? Our entryway closet has specific tote bags filled and ready to grab for specific tasks: the swimming lessons bag, library bag, donation items bag, the tote bag to hold the tote bags etc. One of my favorite bags is a Vera Bradley overnight bag that's my go-to for weekend trips so when I learned about Vera Bradley's partnership with Macy's to offer an exclusive tote for Mother's Day I was excited to learn more.

Clean Out with Polarn O. Pyret & thredUP

Disclosure: I received a gift card from Polarn O. Pyret to facilitate this review; all opinions expressed are my own. 

We are a family of secondhand clothing, and we're proud of it! It's a thrifty tip I watched my mom use for me and my three siblings growing up and now with the online store thredUP I'm sure it's something my mom would've used had it existed. This Earth Day Polarn O. Pyret, the Swedish children's clothing brand, has teamed up with thredUP creating special mailers so you can receive credit when you shop. Polarn O. Pyret's clothing is very sturdy - out of all of the leggings Nia owns theirs last the longest - and with their bright colors and playful, gender-neutral prints it's a brand that gets fantastic resale value on thredUP. 

Never used thredUP? Here's all you have to do:

Happy Earth Day (& a Winner!)

Grayson insisted on feeding my face me!

I got outside with the kids for a few hours yesterday to enjoy ice cream the incredible weather and to lift my spirits after hearing about Prince's passing. I didn't grow up listening to his music, but was inspired by his passion when I was in my 20s and got to see him in concert. I have never seen someone so in their element!

How Norwex is Breaking My Paper Towels Addiction

Disclosure: I received products to facilitate this review; all opinions expressed are my own.

I'm so excited for this Earth Day giveaway post today because it involves my BFF of 25 years and a solution to a household issue that I have! Before kids I rarely purchased paper towels, but now I admit I'm a bit too dependent on them - we buy them in bulk and use them in the kitchen mostly but also for guests in our 2nd bathroom. We have cotton hand towels always on hand, but I find myself ripping off a strip of paper towel to handle most messes. And there are MANY. I have paper towel guilt and in the same way I refuse to purchase disposable plastic water bottles I'm determined to break my paper towel addiction.

SeabuckWonders for Your Skin (& Giveaway!)

Disclosure: I received samples to facilitate this review; all opinions expressed are my own. 

My skin. Sigh. It was its best when I was pregnant both times (slightly better with Grayson) and now it's at its worst. I recently mentioned the health challenges I've been having the past few months, and my skin is the one that's bothered me the most, although it's the least serious of them all. I feel most confident with clear, healthy skin and while I've experienced brief periods of this throughout my life as I try to get things situated on the medical end, selecting natural skin care is important to me.
