If you’ve been on Pinterest, you have seen the trend of hygge posts. Homes filled with candles, coffee mugs, cozy blankets and simple living areas with warm and rustic touches, and all things scandi-inspired. Hygge is the Danish word that has no direct English translation but it is centered around coziness, contentment, and connectedness […]
It was about eight years ago my little sister had a fashion intervention with me. I was interviewing for a job promotion and she was helping me pick out outfits. After a fashion show of all my best ‘interview looks’, she sat me down and told me I looked like that mom in the Swiffer […]
If you’ve read my Style for the Reluctant Mom series you know that style is something I am new to. It was never something I was good at, but as I’ve been trying to step out of my comfort zone, it is something I am enjoying. When I merged my new interest in fashion […]
I don’t even know how many #moms30for30 challenges I have done. Maybe seven? And EVERY single time I find that need this lesson again: contentment with my closet.

So you basically eat avocado, drink coffee and snack on your tears all month….just joking…..mostly. I am so grateful I did the whole 30, it taught me a lot. During the process though, […]
If you are already plotting how to escape the frigid drudgery of Winter, perhaps you need to make a list of all the ways to add some HYGGE into your Autumn!
