Pursuing Wellness with Nature Made

Disclosure: This post was sponsored by Nature Made as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.

One of the things I noticed when I became a mom is that my own health has taken a backseat to my children's. I've shared a bit here on the blog about some of my health challenges and throwing in a lot of life changes the past year, I'm working at getting better at pursuing wellness. Before becoming a mom I was an avid exerciser even getting up at 5a.m. for years Monday through Friday to make it to the gym. No excuses! Quickly those routines changed, but I've learned to now focus on those little things that I can control (I'm all about Kaizen).

Here are 3 of those "little" things:

Grayson's Superfoods Snacktime with The First Years

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post on behalf of The First Years; all opinions expressed are my own. 

Ahhh the struggles of getting kids to eat! I've gone to educational sessions, read books and commiserated with fellow parents over the challenges that have plagued parenthood for eons. With Nia we found that seeing her peers eat various foods at preschool helped her try new foods, but with Grayson starting school this fall I've been trying to jumpstart the situation. When The First Years reached out to me to try their array of products now available at Walmart to help make snack time easier it was perfect timing!

Lately I've been having thoughts about my pre-baby body and while I'm extremely thankful for my two little people, I'm in awe that my body's gone through in the past 7 years! I've learned how to dress in a way that covers up my "most changed" areas and I've become pretty good at it but when zulily reached out to me about their new 4th Trimester Closet Concierge service I was excited to learn more.

Dressing Up on My Caribbean Cruise with eShakti

Disclosure: I received a complimentary eShakti dress to facilitate this review; all opinions expressed are my own.

Remember my eShakti dress from my last cruise? I still get so many compliments on it and am already counting down to summer when I can break it out again here around Boston. We're currently buried under so much snow that keeps coming down, but today I'm reflecting on our recent cruise.

Announcing Boston's Shake Shack Newbury Street Function Room

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post on behalf of Shake Shack; all opinions expressed are my own. 

Do you remember the first time you went to Shake Shack? I do. When I was living in NYC a friend mentioned to me she had recently gone to the original location in Madison Square Park for the first time and that it was so good that she had returned for subsequent visits - like 3x in 1 week! I was alarmed and had to go for myself. 

I did, and I was HOOKED!

Giveaway Alert: It's Not Too Late to Join Day of No Clutter!

Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of Year of No Clutter to facilitate this post; all opinions expressed are my own. 

It's fitting that today is (was!) the Day of No Clutter as I'm buried under so much of it since returning from our trip! As I work to get my act together, I'm inspired by author Eve Schaub who first wrote about her Year With No Sugar and now her Year with No Clutter. Yes, it's true!

Are you intrigued as well? 

March: I See You, Lion!

My new tablet case from Ballard Designs (more on that below!)
My sister Ariane was in town for a long weekend, and it was such a whirlwind of fun that I totally missed properly welcoming March! 

The month has really has bowled me over already, and I'll admit I haven't fully unpacked from our Disney cruise. I'm basking in some good news I shared recently, and it appears that blog conference season is officially in full swing so I have lots to prep for in that regard

Here's what's going on...
