5 Ways I'm Preparing My Son For Kindergarten

Thank you Think About Your Eyes for sponsoring this post. 

Summer is almost here and in a couple of months Turner will start kindergarten! I hear starting public school can be tough due to homework and the schedule but I'm eager to see how Turner does. In preparation we're working on a few things this summer to make the transition a bit smoother.

My Favorite Outdoor Activities in Austin

One of the many reasons I love Austin are the numerous options of outdoor activities! This thriving city is surrounded by lakes, trails, rivers, swimming holes and more. I've partnered with Athleta to share my favorite activities that are great for families, dates, or an outing by yourself or with friends! 

Anti-Aging Night Time Routine

I'm pretty sure most women hit 30 and say to themselves; "WHOA, I should probably start taking better care of my skin!" I know I reacted that way and this past year I've started using more anti-aging products, washing my face morning and night, and making sure to moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!   I've partnered with Dermalogica to share my anti-aging nighttime routine which I've seen AMAZING results in a few short months!

What Goes In To A Sponsored Blog Post

You may see the words #Sponsored or #Ad in a social post and not think much of it, but a TON of work goes in to every sponsored blog and social post. I thought it would be fun to share what goes on behind the scenes and the steps I take to make each sponsored post successful in my eyes. I started this blog in 2011, and I started working with brands in 2015. Over the years I've worked with HomeAway, Carter's, Athleta, Wayfair, Fossil, Hanna Andersson, James Avery and more.

June Small Goals

The year is halfway over! Can you believe it? Now is a great time to look at what you've accomplished the past six months and decide what you want to focus on for the remainder of 2018. I recently heard a great piece of advice on a podcast about setting goals and dreaming big. Many people have something in mind they want to do or accomplish, but they get stuck on the HOW. How are they going to do it? Don't ask how, simply set the goal, keep your eye on the prize and you will figure out a way to get there. I'm now brainstorming things I want to accomplish in my life and trying my hardest to not focus on the how. As Nike would say, JUST DO IT!

Read on to see what goals I accomplished in May and what I have planned for June.
