Back to School Essentials
Toddlers & Teens

Since the time has come to say HOLA to school essentials I thought I would let you know why my teen and my toddler stay excited about school. Besides the fact that my toddler currently just wants to do whatever my teen does. (This is a huge problem since he physically cannot do half of what she can, obviously.) I started getting creative about back packs and lunch boxes 5 years ago. I realized that my innate nature to always be different and an individualist has forced my teenager to... Read The Rest →

Back to Basics

With school fast approaching, I can’t help but have an excitement about all the trends I see available for my kids! I am absolutely distracted because I just want to get one of everything for myself! Is that wrong??? I think not. As long as I am able to get what my kiddos need, then I should get a little something special too! Some of my favorite styles and looks are “The Look” this Fall. Plaids, military jackets with leather trim and vibrant prints are everywhere. The grunged out will... Read The Rest →

Zara Fall Must Handbags

I figure I need to start looking for a new handbag so why not share a little secret. I have always had a keen eye for handbags. After having my daughter I was able to manage treating myself every now and again. Yes I would splurge! Yet with my family multiplying from two to four plus two dogs and with the economy being what it is, I have discovered that I don’t always need Celine. (Although it would be nice) I am just as stylish and fabulous with these pretty... Read The Rest →

Style Sense: Keep It Oversized

After watching recent fashion trends repeat and imitate the good, the bad, and the ugly of the 80’s and 90’s, we have graduated to the oversized look. The oversized coat is going to be everywhere this fall. It is probably one of the most delicate styles you will experience this coming fall. I know it has taken me a little while to embrace the idea of the oversized look, but I am finally totally vibing it. Here is a list of some of the styles I think will be a... Read The Rest →

I Got My MOMterage…

Friendships have a certain significance when we are growing up. It is very simple, to have fun. Our friendships change as we get older. I found that I always had these highs and lows with my friendships. There would be times in my life where I had a ton of close friends and other times that I felt like I was walking through the Sahara Desert of friendships…seriously. Specifically this happened to me when I found out I was preggo with my first child. I was barely an adult. All... Read The Rest →

It’s Tickle Time!!

A couple months back I was introduced to a new sunblock by my daughter. We were at an event and she was gifted the product. She thought it would be something I would like so she gave it to me. Talk about a blessing. Tickle Time is an all natural mineral based tinted sunblock with SPF20. It comes in various shades and all in all does what it says it does. I get all gitty talking about it. I have forced all of my friends to stop rubbing sticky white... Read The Rest →

Vacation at Home

I know it might sound crazy but you have to try it! I recently was reminded by a girlfriend and fellow mommy as I walked over sleeping bags and flashlights in her backyard one morning. It immediately took me back to when I was a little girl. My family didn’t take many vacations further than San Clemente. But every now and then our family would get creative. We would have nights in the summer where my two sisters and I would camp out in the family room. We would build... Read The Rest →

Parenting on Repeat

As a kid I remember the absolute joy I would get from seeing a pool twenty feet in sight. I would forget all about the food I was snacking on as I kicked my shoes off in a race to jump into the water before my sisters. Then my mother would shout out the most disappointing phrase, “Paula, you just ate so you need to wait twenty minutes to let your food digest.” WHAT?! Why would my mother let me eat anything if she knew I would want to get... Read The Rest →

The Know How on Uncovering Sunscreen

Every summer there is another sunscreen that has claims that differ from the year previous. It is always a challenge for me to keep up with science and technology. And not to mention, I am always looking for an alternative that has a more natural approach to sun protection. Do you have a hard time understanding sunscreen and which SPF is the right choice for you? It goes without saying that sunscreen is necessary for all skin types and shades nowadays. With the ozone layer thinning and everyday environmental elements... Read The Rest →
