Prepping for the Holidays: Guest Bedroom

Can you believe the holidays are already here? For many of us, guest will soon fill the empty rooms in our house. I’m so excited to put up the rest of our decorations, start baking, and have Christmas music blasting throughout the house. In the meantime I’m so excited our guest room and a five tips to help your guest feel more at home.

Tip 1: Comfort: Make your WiFi password easily accessible. It’s actually really thoughtful! Something else that is thoughtful is supplying an extra phone charger and power strip for plugging in their laptops, hair dryer, steamer, etc.

Tip 2: Bedding: Is your bedding fresh and clean? Do you have enough pillows? Extra blankets? You can find quality home essentials at amazing prices at Kohl’s and stack coupons.  I love white bedding because it’s easy to switch out different colored sheets and accessories. My husband refuses to have a pink room, so I figured I might as well turn our guest room into my dream room. These Columbia Cooling Sheets are my absolute favorite and are currently on sale for $59.99! We also have them in our master bedroom but in grey. We matched them with these curtains by The Big One. Another way to make your room feel more cozy is to add textured blankets. The one featured here is from Cuddl Duds and is THE SOFTEST blanket I’ve ever felt.

Tip 3: Snacks and Drinks: Have you ever stayed at a relatives house and are either thirsty or starving? Yeah, me to and it’s awkward to do the tip toed walk down the stairs to the refrigerator. To make things easier, I’ll move the WiFi sign off the acrylic tray and add bottles of water and a little snack container filled with protein bars, cookies, crackers, etc.

Tip 4: Closet Space: I know I’m not the only one that uses the guest closet as extra storage for winter coats, Christmas decor, and other miscellaneous items. Make sure you have hangers for them to hang their clothes on as well as enough storage space to hold their luggage.

Tip 5: Bedside Lamp: It seems like an obvious, right? Sometimes the smallest things get overlooked, so if you don’t have one, definitely add it.

Kohl’s November Home Sale is currently going on now through 11/18. You can find amazing deals on brands like Serta, Columbia, The Big One, Cuddl Duds and many more.

Baby Jogger Review: City Mini Anniversary Edition

Strollers these days have gotten huge, heavy, and SO dang expensive. Not to mention there are so many to choose from – Full size, travel systems, jogging strollers…the list goes on and on.  In today’s post, I wanted to talk a little bit about our City Mini Anniversary Edition, and give you my full and honest Baby Jogger review.

When I opened our package, it was already late and dark outside, so I started using it inside my house. The first thing I noticed was how well it whipped (and nae nae’d) around corners. Our first stroller was much bulkier, so when taking Ava anywhere, I would have to put her in the car, take the seat off my stroller, fold up the frame, and was sweating bullets after all of the steps were complete. Now that Ava is over a year, I knew I wanted something more compact and lightweight.

One of my favorite features of the City Mini Anniversary Edition is being able to fold the stroller with one hand. A simple life of a strap folds the stroller down into a compact size, perfect if you have a sedan or want more space in your SUV. My other favorite feature is its generous sun canopy with two peekaboo windows. It provides great shade from the sun no matter what angle the seat is positions. Ava can get uninterrupted naps as the canopy can be opened up 1/3, 1/4 or full closed. The

Since the stroller is so light weight (at only 22 lbs), be aware that if you strap a heavy diaper bag to the handle and your child gets out, the stroller will topple over. If you want to avoid this, the storage basket below has ample room for a small to medium size bag.

With every stroller, there are accessories. These are some of my favorites for the City Mini Anniversary Edition are the parent console, child tray, and glider board.

All in all, I’m so glad we have this stroller for the next stage with Ava. It’s convenient, lightweight, and comfortable.

My Hair Care Routine With Head & Shoulders

This post has been sponsored by Head & Shoulders. All thoughts and opinions are my

Hi Friends! Can you believe it’s already October?! Where has this year gone?

I wanted to share a new product with you guys today. One thing I’ve realized after having a baby is that everything on my body changed, including my hair. After having Ava, I found myself battling greasy roots, product build up and the brassy blonde tones returning faster than they used to. Since this started to happen, I would wander down the shampoo and conditioner aisle and pick up a new set every time I ran out. I’m all for trying new products until I find something that works well with my new hair. I recently tried Head & Shoulders Calm Lavender Shampoo and Conditioner. It’s their new refreshing and soothing scent I found at, believe it or not, Dollar General! Click here to find your nearest store. On top of Dollar General’s already great prices, between Tuesday 9/30- Thursday 10/27, Head & Shoulders products will be $3 off 2 products.

I wanted to wait a few weeks to try out the products before sharing with you guys, but since I’ve started using H&S Calming Lavender products, my hair has looked shinier, healthier and more moisturized. P.S. the lavender smell of them is AMAZING!!

Did you know lavender is known to be a calming and anti-stress scent? It’s perfect for winding down after a long day of working and being a mom! Since I found this out years ago, I’ve incorporated lavender by using it as an essential oil or a candle—and now adding it into my shampoo and conditioner. While most shampoos only cleanse the surface of the hair, Head & Shoulders Calming Lavender Shampoo and Conditioner renews and nourishes the scalp for shiny, manageable hair. Since using Head & Shoulders, I’ve been able to go 2 days between washes now, without my hair looking greasy.

If you are looking for an affordable shampoo and conditioner that will strengthen and moisturize your hair, I would highly suggest heading to Dollar General and giving H&S Calming Lavender a try!
