When someone says they don’t like beet juice 🧐 ___ Beets rate kinda high on the Glycemic Index, so beet juice isn’t something 👸 drinks too often. Beets, however are good sources of folate, iron, potassium, vitamin C, fiber, and antioxidants. I personally love a beet juice or salad, how about you?
Does Lemonade remind anyone else of summer?? I suspect someday soon we’ll finally be celebrating summer 🙄 so I’m sharing MAED’s Sparkling Rose Lemonade recipe tomorrow via our newsletter. If you haven’t already, head to maed.co and SIGN UP 🍋🍹💋

The #gingham gang is all here! Throwing it back to @oldnavy’s x @goop’s Mother’s Day celebration where I got to hang with fellow Mama @ellestrauss & her beautiful minis. #mini♥️me 📷 by @emmafeilphotography
Many of you know I’m super cautious about the products I use for 👸. Our LOs have sensitive systems that absorb ingredients quicker and the impact on their development is just way more intense, so I’m always on the lookout for non-toxic baby products. I stumbled upon @SAJEWELLNESS a little over a year ago and fell in love with their essential oil blends & powerful diffuser. When they reached out to give me the 411 on their brand new 100% natural baby line, partnering was a no-brainer! NO toxins, NO harmful synthetics and NO artificial fragrances… I’m here for all of that! #sponsored
Jumping into the new week like... 💥💥💥 Mondays used to really challenge me but I’ve learned to shift my prospective, plan ahead by list making & rest up the night before. Sunday night might actually be the only night I get to bed before 11PM. What habits help you get ready for Monday morning & your new week?
My mother once said to me (before I had my daughter) “I made mistakes, but I did the best I could with what I had.” I remember thinking to myself, what is she talking about? You see, before I was a mother I never knew nor could I ever imagine what it was to feel like you were carrying the weight of the world. I never knew what it was to question myself so much... every move, every word, every meal. I never knew what it was to put someone else first in every single given opportunity. I never knew what it was to pull strength out of exhaustion, to keep going when all I really wanted to do was press pause. I never knew “me time” was a luxury and that it was imperative to schedule it in. Now that I have my own little girl, I know exactly what my mother meant. Why is it easier to point out the mom fails we think were made, than it is to count the number of kisses we gave away? I know as mothers we never stop questioning if we are doing all that we can for our children but the further I move through this journey the more I understand. Since there isn’t one exact way to mother. Since there are no right answers to all of the questions. Since babies don’t come with manuals, it’s inevitable that there will be mistakes. Most of them, however, will go unnoticed. Many of them forgotten. My wish today for Mother’s Day is that we take a little of the forgiveness we so easily give our children and share it with ourselves. Don’t be surprised, if one day you turn to your grown child and confess the tiniest form of self-doubt and find that you’re met with utter confusion. Your child just might look at you like you’re absolutely crazy. Why? Because all they’ve ever known was that invisible cape you wear day in and day out. Personally, I can’t tell you what my mother’s mistakes were. To me, she’ll never be anything less than the definition of a superhero. Let us not forget we’re ALL going thru it and we’re all just doing the best that we can with what we have. Happy Mother’s Day to all who mother. To those who question themselves 1000 times a day in hopes of getting it right and to my own mother who did it absolutely perfectly in my eyes... Mommy, I love you!!!
Still looking for the perfect Mother’s Day gift? Y’all already know that shades are my jam and naturally 👸 feels the same. More than just protective eyewear sunnies elevate any basic outfit. They assist at keeping things chic especially while on the go sporting ‘mom jeans.’ P.S. these exclusives are the perfect way to slide a little designer into your look without breaking bank and you can never have too many pairs. Wouldn’t you agree, Ladies? @sunglasshut #MomFirst #OnlyAtSunglassHut #Ad
My 1st suggestion when wanting to teach your child healthy eating habits is to lead by example. They will always want to do what they see being done. My 2nd suggestion is keep open honest conversation. If we’re at a birthday party and they don’t have a vegan option then I explain that to her. I, then promise to either make her a special treat at home or take her out for a special treat— like vegan ice cream. I love this photo because it says it all.... patiently waiting for a spoonful of dairy free CHARCOAL ice cream. #betheexample
My most treasured pieces of jewelry are those that have been given to me by my mother, some passed down from her mother. Coming from a family rooted in tradition, I look forward to passing down my most cherished pieces to my daughter. The gift that keeps on giving, jewelry celebrates love, creates lasting memories and is far more valuable than its price tag. If you're looking for a piece that is timeless and elegant, LAGOS just might be what you're looking for. #MyLAGOSMyWay #LoveLAGOS #sponsored
Should I... a) stay up till 4am to get it all done? b) go to bed and wake up at 4am to get it all done? Either way this is me in a few hours. Extremely curious to know how many other Mamas are night owls? 🤔🤔🤔 #thatisthequestion #momlife p.s. don’t let your LO sleep with anything around their head or neck. 👸was play sleeping in this photo💋

🎉Celebrating #BabyBaston 🎊 @evalongoria welcome to the next beautiful chapter, Mama. You’ve done so much for others, it’s pretty evident that you’re going to be a rockstar Mama 🙌🏽😘
I don’t know about you guys but I’m obsessed with podcasts. Every time I’m in the car I feel like I have the opportunity to learn something while on my Mama hustle (multitasking at its finest). Clearly 👸 isn’t on board 🤣 What about you? Any podcasts you’re loving? ⌨️👇🏽
Anyone else spend the entire day waiting around for the sun?! 🙄😭
Happy Denim day. I’ve always been a jeans and t-shirt girl, but who says denim has to be just jeans? Have you seen my denim couch??! 🙈 Head over to insta-stories to catch my interview w @luckybrand. #LuckyYou #ad
Happy #worldbookday 📖 Reading to your LO’s for just 10 minutes a day can strongly impact their brain development, literacy skills, language and their beautiful imaginations. Shoutout to my mother who always encouraged me to pick up a book, because of that I’ve passed the love for storytelling onto 👸. Sitting down to read a book (or three) is one of our favorite ways to spend time together. #igotitfrommymomma
