Below is a boutique widget of what I’ve been favoriting lately. Happy Prime Day!
I don’t know about you, but I have scored quite a few notable Amazon buys lately. One of which I’d like to share today. I must confess, I used to have a green thumb, but not lately. I’m getting ready for the kids to go back to school in two weeks, we have a business to run and I have zero time to water or trim so artificial for the win!
These topiaries come in a set of 2, have to be assembled (just attach both sides) and look stunning and real! Reid even complimented me on how well these have held up and give our back yard a little feel of Tuscany with zero work.

So many good home finds at Amazon, from poufs for the girl’s room, to a shag rug. I’m also using these baskets to organize.
Which is your favorite?
Guess what?? I have an Amazon influencer page!! I share what I order for kids, food and my affordable fashion picks. What I love about Amazon is the convenience, (hello next day shipping) and the wide selection, from chicken broth to cute leopard skirts.

Let me know what you think!
After being gone a whole week, we were more than happy to see the 4 kiddos this weekend. We enjoyed a morning at church with papa, and an afternoon at the nursery buying plants and driving up to Lake Arrowhead. We planted (my favorite) raspberry bushes that take me back to playing Candy Land on my grandma’s porch snaking on raspberries while the air smelled like roses. Ah to be 5 again! We got a lot accomplished. Well my dad and Reid did while I nursed Levi. We also brought up 3 paint colors to try on the Lake Arrowhead cabin. Caviar by Sherwin Williams won, now, we wait for the city’s approval. Exciting things coming up. Here’s a link below to more dresses and leather jackets I’m loving:
As always, my shop page is open 24/7 and you can follow me on the Liketoknow.it app for immediate outfit details. Thanks for stopping by! xx Shalice
You know those things you have in your life that just help you function each day? That’s what I want to share with all you guys today! Because with a household to run, a husband and five kids to keep track of, I’m desperate for anything that makes life go a little smoother, ha!
I think it’s important to have a running Amazon list. From the practical to the impulse buys under $20. I must say, I’m a fan of it all. Amazon truly is a gift to all the mom’s out there. Most days with a household of 7 people, I need diapers next day, chicken broth for tomorrow’s dinner and a quick birthday gift for an 18 month-old. Anyone else relate? I’ve been asked what are some of my favorites, so here they are!
I hope your week has been good and you have something fun planned this weekend!
To those asking about my vintage Chanel Cocoon bag, here’s a dupe for much less and bonus, it wipes clean. If you’re worried about the spit up from last night? Yeah, that’s a quick wipe off. See my faves below!
I get a lot of questions about my routines from diet to keeping it up with it all. Read on for some tips!
WHAT IS YOUR MORNING ROUTINE LIKE?
To avoid getting hangry, I take two scoops of Vital Proteins Collagen Powder (non-flavored) in my almond milk latte every morning.
The benefits of collagen are many. It’s the most abundant protein in your body. It can relieve joint pain and improving skin health. I’ve personally noticed better hair quality and stronger nails. After all, increased skin hydration leads to less wrinkles. Do I have your attention now?
Multi tasking is key.
I drink Dandy Blend with one scoop of collagen protein and almond milk and snack on salted almonds or kale chips as I respond to e-mails.
I work on my pilates ring while I help the kids with their homework. Yes they think I’m crazy. The pilates ring tones my inner thighs. I even bring it in my suitcase when we travel.
1 big bunch of organic kale, washed and dried
pinch off the leaves from the stalk into small pieces
drizzle with avocado oil and sea salt
Bake for 15 min on 350 degrees
I get a lot of questions about what vitamins I take on the regular. I take a prenatel vitamin since I’m still nursing and b12, since I’m off coffee. Don’t think for a second this mama doesn’t run on some kind of vitamin in place of a legal addictive stimulant. I link both below that I take daily!

Adult Energy B12 Gummies (1000 mcg per serving) // Baby and Me Pre and Postnatel Vitamin // Magnesium Powder // D3 Gummies // Sheets for the Arrowhead Cabin // Baby Pacifier (yet he doesn’t take one right now, unfortunately) // Hand Sanitizer for traveling with kids! // Aspartame Free Gum (I buy a 3 pack for traveling)
WHAT ABOUT YOUR DINNER ROUTINE?
Tonight we are having lemon chicken and oregano potatoes tonight. We have a ton of meyer lemons on our bush in our yard so I’m making that with oregano. It’s delicious. I’m making it in the crock pot because I tend to burn everything. Want the recipe? Look below:
Chicken and Potatoes
1 whole chicken or a couple chicken breasts (whatever I have on hand)
4 lemons freshly squeezed
1 cup of water or enough to cover the potatoes
4 large potatoes peeled and chopped
If it’s a crazy busy day ahead, start in the morning and throw it in a crock pot. If not, place all ingredients in a 9×13 dish and cook for 1 hour in 350 degrees or until chicken and potatoes are tender. The lemon makes the sauce amazing! Serve with rolls and a green salad. Top off the salad with my homemade salad dressing here!
CHORES! Do your kids do them?
Oh the dreaded word!! But seriously it HAS to be done. Other things that help laundry and organization are giving each of my kids a chore that is age specific. My oldest does the laundry, second daughter loads/unloads the dishwasher, oldest boy (#3) takes out the trash and the 5 year old takes out the small trash cans from the upstairs bathrooms. I will not claim that my kids do their chores without reminders (nagging) or without some bribing and I’ll admit I have to do lots of incentives, but it eventually gets done. For example, a popular incentive in my house are healthy lollipops. I use those candy on a stick for everything and MANY TIMES A DAY !! :)))
