In Defense of the Princess | Book Review

Having publishers and authors reach out to me to have Stellar Day review their books is a new and unexpected endeavor for me. It’s an endeavor that I COMPLETELY WELCOME with total open arms. I love books, I love to read, and opening up the Stellar Day Book Club is probably one of the smartest things I’ve done! It’s given me direction, focus, intentionality and purpose with reading again. And anyone who is a busy lady or mama knows that finding time to read can be anything but easy! This has been a joy to start in this journey…

The Sweetest Little Bows

A few months ago, while searching for the perfect bows for my daughter, I ran across Jessica with Harrow Co Shop. I noticed that her headbands were made out of nylon instead of that super tight elastic. And her clips came with an alligator clip (that doesn’t pull fine hair). I had to try. I ordered a few bows and loved them! Not only were the bows cute, but they were hand delivered to me (she’s local to Austin) super quickly! BOOM. I was hooked. The headbands are so soft and don’t leave any marks on my daughter’s…

Butterfly Wonderland

We went to Butterfly Wonderland for the first time yesterday! I was actually nervous about taking my youngest kiddos there, to be totally honest. I just thought my five and two year old would for SURE wreak some kind of havoc and end up murdering butterfly’s in the process of flailing about in tremendous fear of the winged creatures.

But the opposite happened.

I WAS THE ONE SCREAMING INSTEAD AND MY KIDS LOVED IT. (hahaha)

Isn’t that the truth?? Man alive. There were SO many butterflies! But…

Self Care | A Quick Tip From Jess

I always think that self care is a good idea. My life goes through seasons of being able to really focus on this and to take care of myself. Sometimes, I have to put myself last for a little bit until a particular season is over but then I usually come back out on top and am able to make intentional time and space for myself.

The trick to self care, is that you can’t take on the world. I think it’s important to pick one or two things that are doable for you, and to try and do them…

Giveaway | Purposed Life Art

Purposed Life Art has been one of my favorite online shops since it existed. I met Meghan when she was just pregnant with her third and she was just considering starting Purposed Life. I knew she was a brilliant artist and photographer, and was excited to learn that she loved to design clothes.

She is truly an artist!

She launched her business and I’ve been able to watch it grow- which is truly a passion of mine! There’s nothing I love more than seeing someone else’s success happen in business! I’ve purchased her clothes, I’ve…

Nine Retreat.

Strong Women

Isn’t this so true? I admire women who take the time to encourage, uplift and who are life giving to be around. Not because of their energy, or their beauty, or who they know or who they know. But because they just continuously point to the good in others. They don’t gossip, they aren’t negative or heavy in their spirit. The words that slip off their tongue are that of peace, encouragement, inspiration and goodness.

I am going to NINE retreat next month, and let me tell you….

Thankful Thursday. And A Giveaway!

Our drive out to Cali this week wasn’t the easiest one. We photographed a wedding on Friday, I didn’t sleep much Friday night, and we got up early and out the door right away for our road trip. So this left me with little margin to even begin the day right and tried as I might have, I still wasn’t in the greatest mood.

The kids sensed it.

So they bickered in the car and at one point I sat there in the front seat and just cried. Sometimes crying just makes everything better, amiright?

After I cried, I sat there for…

Banana Dippers.

Ok yuuuuuum. When I find something irresistible, I HAVE to share it. Now, I know that these aren’t brand new or revolutionary or anything. But they DO curb the cravings and satisfy for something sweet! We’ve been staycation-ing this week and it’s been tempting to overeat and fill up on junk food. Especially since we’ve been out by the pool and it’s HOT out!

So I grabbed these Dole Banana Dippers at Fry’s and they’ve been amazing to have on hand!! Satisfying, scrumptious, cold and a perfect snack.

WINNING.
