Happy Friday! How are these weeks flying by? See the top 7 of my week below:


Just discovered these silk pjs. I’m wearing them as I write this.

Dog food that comes to your door, use code SHALICE

Kamut Flour that’s good for you. I think I lose weight eating it because it fills me up! (it also has extra protein)

My favorite collagen (lean body system, Lemon is my fave) is on sale plus you get collagen foam and a gold spoon FREE.

This crop tee looks KILLER with flares.

Your room just may be missing an olive tree. Here’s a dupe of the one I have.

Read Levi’s birth story here. I can’t believe he will be 3 years old in a couple weeks.

I’m excited to partner with Talbots for the T by Talbots line and share a little more about my personal wellness journey. I became motivated to live a healthy lifestyle when I realized how good I felt when I ate healthy and how bad I felt when I slipped into unhealthy eating habits. As a busy mom, nutrition and fitness routines have become habits in my active lifestyle not only making me healthier, but helping me feel better and giving me more energy! Therefore, limiting foods that have no nutritional benefit and staying active has been really key for us. These lifestyle habits are also a powerful influence for my kids’ training as they model what I eat and do.  

Some of my daily routines are as follows: 

1. Every morning I start my day with a glass of celery juice. 

2. I drink plenty of water throughout the day to stay hydrated.  If not  my skin will look dull without enough H20. 

3. I take liquid collagen, calcium and vitamin C supplements daily. I prefer liquid because it is 90% absorption versus 30% for powder. 

4.  I fix leafy green salads with sunflower seeds, avocado, feta, olives and a lean protein, drizzled in homemade balsamic dressing. 

5.  To curve cravings, I snack on high fiber energy balls between meals.  I’m sharing the no-bake recipe below.  My kids rave over these and watch out, because they disappear fast! Delicious!!!

 I always look out for easy recipes packed with protein (almond butter) and fiber (chia seeds and oatmeal). Energy balls seem to fit the bill.  We can thank the chia seeds which are loaded with antioxidants, fiber, protein and are high in Omega-3 fatty acids. Eating healthy has never tasted so good.

Here’s the recipe below!

 ENERGY BALLS

1 cup of organic oats (I grind in my cuisinart)

1/2 cup of chocolate chips

1/3 cup of chia seeds

1/2 cup honey

1/2 cup almond butter, crunchy

1/2 teaspoon Himalayan salt

1 teaspoon cinnamon

Mix the above and mold into 1 inch balls. Place on a pan or plate into the freezer for one hour or 10 minutes if you’re like us and can’t wait! 

How cool is this cobalt top from T by Talbots?  The pops of color, flattering shade of blue and perfect length make it a perfect pairing with this skort for errands or a neighborhood walk. I’m also loving these crop pants and zip ankle leggings for squats or lounging. Which is your favorite piece?

Mother’s Day Gifts

As Mother’s Day rolls around, Reid invariably asks me what I want at some point. I usually ask for a massage or homemade cards. This year I asked for some jewelry like the kind my mother used to wear, lots of pearls in the form of elegant rings and earrings. LAGOS Jewelry has been a favorite for a while now, for both their quality and assortment of jewelry. I don’t like bulky jewelry or lots of hearts, so when I saw these dainty, detailed, and studded pieces, I fell in love. I don’t know what I love more, the rings, the bracelet, or the necklace? All of them? I hope to pass my jewelry to my daughters just like my mom passed some of hers to me. LAGOS Jewelry has that timelessness that I look for when scouting out jewelry, and I’m always thrilled when I add one of their pieces to my collection.
This Mother’s Day I’m so grateful for my Mom who put up with my teenage attitude and awkward stages, and continues to be selfless in serving her kids and grandkids. Isn’t motherhood the most beautiful adventure? I think it is. And the weird thing is, I really will miss these days of floors cluttered with annoying blocks or hundreds of frozen peas, constant bickering but also constant hugs and kisses. Happy almost Mother’s Day to the moms, the grandmothers, and those who wish to be mothers. We appreciate you!

After 4 years of renting, numerous offers, and bidding wars, WE BOUGHT A HOUSE. Even crazier, we’re moving 5 days before Christmas! Never a dull moment around here. We laugh because every Christmas we do something crazy like travel or move and we have a less than normal Christmas. I’m super excited to show you more of the house, our plans for it and interior design. Yesterday, we took a video tour of the house with Tim & co, and I can’t wait to show you more! I’ll admit, it was a little daunting talking into the camera so long, but I’m sure you’ll enjoy the home tour.

We plan to clean carpets and the house before we move in, as well as pack up 7 people after settling 4 years in this rental house.

If you think we are crazy, you are probably right but I can’t think of another Christmas and birthday gift I would rather have. I’ve been dreaming about home content for ages and so happy to finally have a home to renovate and decorate. Unlike a rental, I can actually pick all the light fixtures, YAY! Are you ready for some home content?

In the meantime, here is a major SNEAK PEEK to get an idea of what the new house looks like:

Here are some home items that I am loving!

1.Nuface Trinity I can’t say enough good about this product! I use it to lift both sides of my face, 5 minutes.

2. Charlottle Tilbury bronze and glow Charlotte has mastered the glow, am I right?

4. Isle of Paradise I buy this in DARK. Exfoliate beforehand, apply mousse evenly with mitt on fronts and backs of limbs.

5. L’Occitane Immortelle Reset serum, LOVE this serum! I did a review in this post

6. Sunday Riley Good genes has a cult following and feels amazing on the skin. I’m wondering if Sunday Riley can do no wrong?

7. Tan Luxe “the face” I mix a couple drops into my moisturizer and boom, I have a tanner face to match my legs. Ha!

8. Tanning Mitt. This is a game changer! My hands are no longer embarrassingly dark and now I get an even tan!

9. Sunday Riley CEO cream, fights the first visable signs of aging and my sensitive skin just drank it up.

BONUS 10! I haven’t splurged on this, but with the sale I’m tempted. The Dyson blow dryer or the Dyson Airwrap styler. No extreme heat damage was a big bonus.

I’ve gotten SO many compliments about these sandals for thirteen dollars! I’ve worn them everywhere from the Huntington gardens to Sea World. A mom needs a lightweight go-to sandal and I couldn’t resist the cute pink color. I liked them so much so that I purchased a pair for my daughter. They also come in size 5, and I love twinning with her!

Walmart has some great buys. I’m also crushing on their leopard selection! Remember, if your order is over $35, and is a qualified order, you’ll receive free two-day shipping, no membership required. See more options below!

Also, some favorite beauty buys like this mascara and lip gloss:

$13 sandals // jeans topshop similar // top fp // her top similar //

We are in the heat of the soccer camp season and the kids are loving it. While I’m not enjoying the commute, I tell myself these seasons are going very fast. I’m grateful for each moment! How’s your week going?

Thank you Walmart for sponsoring this post!

I get asked often what we eat and what are some yummy snacks for picky eaters. Well, today I’m sharing one of our FAVORITE snacks. I came home from work yesterday, and the kids helped me make kale chips with parmesan. One of our favorites! It is quick and easy and EVERYONE including daddy helps up eat it. I usually get a couple bunches at the store.

KALE CHIPS WITH PARMESAN

  1. Wash and dry a large bunch of kale
  2. Massage avocado oil ( I use this because it resists heat yup to 500 degrees fahrenheit)
  3. Sprinkle with sea salt (I like Kosher salt)
  4. (Optional) sprinkle with fresh parmesan
  5. Place in the oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit for 15-20 minutes depending on your oven.
  6. Place on a plate and consume as soon as it cools down. In our house, it is eaten right away!

What do you think? Try it this weekend and let me know how it turned out!

I’ve been searching for what to wear to an evening out. Post baby 4mos and I cannot deny I feel and look a little different than I did a year ago. That said, I found this beautiful flowey jumpsuit (that looks like a dress) evening attire. I LOVE it and got lots of compliments wearing it. If you have an evening wedding to attend, cocktail hour, charity or just a BBQ date night, I recommend going the jumpsuit route.

Since the jumpsuit is from Shopbop and they’re having their annual sale, I included some faves below. I’ve been shopping the Shopbop sale in between making kids lunches and vacuuming up Legos. Oops. Lot’s of birthdays happening in the upcoming two weeks, so I’ll make it brief. I’ve been crushing on all things olive, jumpsuits with insanely large wide legs, anything belted, and exaggerated sleeves, particularly the balloon sleeve. I found a couple of those things and more on the Shopbop site. I included many of them below, so check it out and let me know what you think. Bonus, if you have any idea how to organize these Lego’s!
