Trying to make sure I take these on the daily! A little behind but delayed my next shipment so I can play catch-up!
My personalized pack contains:
☑️Pre-natal for my hair, nails, skin and whatever the future holds
☑️Pro-biotic that I take after my protein shake that I include a probiotic powder in
☑️Vitamin D ... Because we live in Michigan and there isn't enough ☀️ and I recently learned I'm deficient which may play a role in me always being 😴
☑️Vitamin C ...because let's be real..
I get sick pretty easy 😷🤒🤢 Let me know if you are interested in learning more! Even got @felixj123 hooked!
GUYS! We are so close to having a wireless baby!! Grace is now at a week and a half of NO OXYGEN SUPPORT. Soon the pesky monitor and tubes will be a thing of the past and Grace will feel like a normal baby! Traveling to doctors appts. like this was always an adventure; we had to lug around her pulse ox monitor, oxygen tank, back up oxygen tank and diaper bag. This @uppababy has been a life saver! It’s the only stroller that has a basket big enough for all her stuff! For a while we were hauling this stuff on our own. This was so much better and I look less ridiculous!
What’s your favorite baby gear?! #notanad#justafan#nicumom#uppababyvista#23weeker 📸:@harrietbraunbirthphotography

Love yourself enough to set healthy boundaries. ⏳ Your hourglass is falling fast with each day passing through as a grain of sand. ⌛️ Save your energy and your time for the more important things in life, including yourself. ✨ You set the standard for your health and your peace of mind. Teach others about your health standards by presenting them as a fixture of who you are. It’s not selfish to push yourself as a priority in your life, it’s a necessity. While I’m frustrated that I can’t work this weekend in Indianapolis, I realize there’s a give-and-take factor that I must have to give myself more downtime so my body can stay in remission. 📿 Grateful for @shopthenewblak + @kozykandles for the warrior candle to ease into my weekend with a low-key feel to ease up on the stress of missing out on work but saving myself for something bigger. | #notanad#crohnswarrior#selfcare#livingmybestlife
My blog has a section in the Sweet B Village called #1 Fan Of where I highlight some of the local businesses and people I've discovered over the last few years.⠀
Sweet B is a # Fan Of: @s.s.baitsco⠀
S.S. Baits Co is a company run by two sisters from Bemidji, MN. Erica and Shanna were so welcoming when I ran into them and I immediately knew I had to get my Dad a custom Alaskan Brewery Company lure for his birthday (shown in picture). These two ladies were quick to hunt down his beer and they made an insanely awesome lure that not only looks pretty (hello, 24k gold flake) but actually works! They use traditional, woodworking lure craft with new finishing techniques. Their mission is to create a lure that will pass on for generations; a bait like your grandfather used to rely on.⠀
My friend @johnrichofficial sent me a couple bottles of his @redneckrivierawhiskey and @indio_radio and I just had to hold a taste test in our final hour today! Each bottle sold supports @foldsofhonor ! Hands down my new favorite whiskey (and I’m super particular.) #DanaRadio#NotAnAd
If you have short brittle hair with no shape to it like I do and would love a full bob or lob like this @elitehairextensionssalon is the perfect place.
Affordable quality hair so professional and just overall amazing service (they even offer prosecco 😜) give them a shout with any questions or arrange a consultation. They also do colour cuts treatments etc as well as extensions. I promise you won’t be disappointed 💕 #notanad#honest#elitehairextensions#long#short#lob#bob#extenstions#hair
making baby food was something I planned on doing... and I did, for 2 months. not only was it time consuming, but it was wasteful. we would make batches of veggies and fruits and freeze them in the trays, but then HB decided that he hated everything after it was thawed. maybe it was the texture? maybe it was too warm or too cold? maybe he didn’t like it mixed with breast milk, or maybe he did? it became a game, that I felt like I was losing every day. so I got on google and searched, “organic baby food service” and up popped a ton of options. some that didn’t deliver to us here in MI, some that you still had to steam and then blend. I just wanted simple, that he would eat, that my psycho healthy food obsessed husband would approve. & here is the winner. @yumi. approved by baby + hubby + mama! they are #organic , customizable, mixed with #superfoods , backed by science, have a passion project, and best of all HB LOVES THEM! #notanad#notsponsored
~ LOO ROLL DAY ~
Buying loo roll have never been as fun ☺ Delivery day means towers to build, boxes to climb and obstacle courses to make.
That's us sorted for loo roll until next year. No plastic wrapping in sight, recycled paper and they donate money to build loos for those in need. Also, they're pretty and you can reuse the paper for crafty play.
Well done @whogivesacraptp for being ace enough to warrant a post on loo roll #notanad .
If you haven’t already you need to jump on the #truffle train! 🍄🚂And no I don’t mean the chocolate truffle variety, although those are delicious, I mean the mushroom variety! Like this truffle salt from @sfsaltco (#notanad & #notsponsored ) 🍄🍄
First, what are truffles? They are a type of subterranean edible fungi (read: mushroom). But they are not necessarily the same as your typical mushroom. There are black and white varieties that come from Italy, and white is more rare. The mushrooms themselves are full of dietary fiber, and nutrients like magnesium, iron, vitamin D and calcium. Like any other mushroom they are low in fat and carbs! You can usually buy truffles in health stores dehydrated, and with a big $ sign! I’ve actually never seen fresh truffles. Why so expensive? Because it’s a natural product that grows in the wild, and therefore rare. You can’t farm them, many have tried! 🤷🏼♀️🤷🏼♀️
You’ll see a lot of ‘truffle infused’ products like truffle salt, truffle oil, truffle cheese, etc. but you have to watch out because most of these conventional products, even those sold in health food stores, are only truffle flavor and not the actual truffle extract. These items can be expensive and I’ve learned to read labels and unfortunately, the more $$$, the more likely it is to be real and not synthetic.
It’s hard to see describe the taste, and what actually makes the truffle so delectable is the smell. To me, it’s a mix of cheese and garlic with an earthy funk. Okay, that doesn’t sound appetizing but I swear it’s amazing and rich/savory and it goes well on tons of foods. I like to sprinkle truffle salt on eggs, salads, any kind of red meat or poultry, pasta (or zoodles), popcorn, and so much more. What do you think? Do you like truffles or are you intrigued to try? 🤤🤨❤️
Shoutout to @carved for replacing my broken iPhone 8 Plus case in Walnut Burl under their 1 year warranty! Amazing customer care and amazing policies! Thank you, @carved! 💜💜💜 #carvedcase#superb#thankyou#notanad

I am in LOVE with this jewel of a book — Light Magic for Dark Times by @lisamariebasile 💗✨We all need a little magic in our lives and this book is just what I need as I head into a fall season brimming with life, dark and light. These self-care rituals and practices are so needed. 💗✨Link in bio if you want one for yourself. I’m buying more for gifts. 💃🏻
You guys, I have an obsession with these pants! I got them from @sheinofficial and they were only like $15! They’re the perfect work pants and are super stretchy and comfy. Also, this is #notanad , just figured I would share the deals. Side note, I also ordered three more items when I ordered the pants and everything I got fit perfectly! I was honestly super surprised 😅 Plus I paid less than $40 for four things!
You know those times when you’re in a hurry and you notice your roots are showing 😦 these products are the life savers you need for these sticky situations, my favorites are the L’oréal Magic Retouch sprays, they simply save the day when it comes to quickly concealing your roots, you can find them at most supermarkets and they are very affordable, swipe to see other options that you can find at haircare stores such as @nazihcosmetics if you’re into trying other brands 😊 #notanad .
أحياناً منكون مستعجلين و فجأة مننتبه إنو جذور شعرنا واضحة و ما عنا وقت للصبغة ☹️ بهل حالات كتير مهم يكون عنا شي بديل و فوري لإخفاء هلجذور، عن نفسي انا بفضل بخاخ لوريال ماجيك ريتتش، ممكن تلاقوه بأغلب السوبرماركات، أما الصورة التانية ففيها أنواع تانية لنفس فكرة هلبخاخات ممكن تلاقوهن عند محلات العناية بالشعر و التجميل متل نزيه 💁🏼♀️ .

Watch til the end to see how kitty kiss proof these lipsticks are 😻
What’s your fav new shade?👇🏼
1. ‘Ground Breaker’

The staying power is unreal on the @maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink liquid lipsticks ! They literally don’t budge!!! #ccclarkeliptutorials#ccclarkebeauty#liptutorial#notanAD 😝
Ok. I have to admit. Ask anyone that knows me. I have the smallest butt. It’s pathetic really. When I received these resistance bands from @chicmoda.sport I was beyond excited. These things are no joke! After a mere 10 minuets, my butt and thighs were on FIRE!!!!! The package I have has 3 bands of different color and strength. And can I just say, I laughed when I tried the medium band first AND FAILED!?!? No worries. After some time working with these bands and building up my strength, I know my body will show it. I don’t have a home gym with equipment unless you count my 10 and 20 pound weights. So for me, these are perfect. This will help with my strength training for my running, as well as for my yoga practice. And the bag makes them easy to find when I chuck it in my bag! These come in different colors and strengths as well as a free 6 month extended warranty. Just sayin’ 😉
Do you work out with resistance bands? Would you like to? Maybe you should snag a set and we can work out together?
I’ve been blessed with excellent vision so far in life … and I’d like to keep it that way. My hubby picked up these blue-light blocking glasses a few months ago and I’ve been stealing them ever since.
These glasses block the blue light from computer and phone screens while still letting the normal colors shine through, perfect when you’re a graphic designer and doing a project at 10 pm on a Thursday night.
Long-term exposure to blue light can lead to things like sore, dry eyes, blurry vision, double vision, light sensitivity, difficulty focusing on images, neck pain, headaches or a combination of it all. It can also disrupt our natural circadian rhythm and suppress melatonin production …making it hard for us to fall asleep at night. Sounds about right. 🤔
I find my eyes get less dry and I fall asleep easier when I wear these while I work. I’m ready to grab my own pair so Chris can reclaim his, plus these are a little big. I’ve never worn glasses so, HELP, tell me which style you think would work best for me?
#notanad I just like them @pixeleyewear
🖤Fave new shoes and new tights alert! Nope, #NotAnAd but just looking out for my fit fam who love a good shoe and tights 😉.
Tights are @athleta (I’m in XS) and they not only have pockets but they’re buttery soft and have cute cutout design in front and back.
And these @apl shoes are my current absolute favorite of all my shoes. These are the Techloom Breeze and fit true to size (I wear 7.5 in all shoes and in these...but I’m an 8 in Nike if that helps).
The bra is an oldie but goodie from @lornajaneactive .
This adorable fall backdrop is set up at my fav spot @smallpocketstx! No appt needed. Just spend $25 and get a free session plus one free 5x7 print plus the opportunity to by more. @jessica_cernat_photography does a fantastic job coaxing those little smiles too! Take advantage of this deal mama friends! She’s here all day today and Saturday morning! #notanad#justsharinggoodstuff .
London is a beautiful city anyway, but is most inspiring this time of year.
The London Design Festival brings in beautiful beautiful new products such as this completely natural, sustainable DESIGN#1 chair by @revology, made of linen fibres for the legs, a sugar-based resin for the seat, and recycled brass for all the lovely hardware.
Every single inch of this chair has been extremely well thought out from how raw materials are sourced, to how it's made, and how components can be replaced or recycled. And it's as durable as it is comfortable!
Huge congratulations to founders Alex and Monique, your passion is so inspiring! I have waited over a year for this launch, and am very very excited (as you could tell) to receive my new desk chair from the first batch of production!
Read more about their story (and pre-order your first edition limited series chair!) on www.revology.com

I am sooo excited about this, you guys! I’d love for you to join me (#notanad and I gain nothing from posting this. I just reeeeally believe in what they do)!💪 •
The first challenge I ever did with @toneitup was the 2017 Bikini Series. I was looking for something to help me get back into shape after Austin was born and let me tell you - it WORKED! I was in better shape at the end of the challenge than I had been before I got pregnant! Here I am once again post-baby and eager to get back into my fitness routine. The timing couldn’t be more perfect for this challenge since it starts the same week I’ll be cleared by my doctor to workout again 😁👏
Last October myself and several friends did the fall challenge and it was a blast! We started a private FB group so we could all follow along with each other (we are quite an entertaining bunch!) 😜 This year’s challenge starts October 1st and runs through the 31st! Head over to @toneitup and click the link in bio to sign up! If you want in on our FB group, send me a message! LET’S DO THIS! 💪😁
