with bridal shower and baby shower season here and with my sister in law’s coming up later this summer, i’ve been brainstorming inexpensive DIY favor ideas that are easy to make in big batches. i teamed up with paper mart, who makes a huge variety of packaging for favors and parties for this very easy and suuuper cute favor idea. these are so easy, you can literally make a dozen of these at a time in a couple of minutes!  Read More

modern baby registry

05.16.17

while i’m not deeming myself an expert since i have zero babies so far, i have done a lot of research on things i’d need and wouldn’t need, and while this list might not be the most minimal, i did try to keep our registry concise, and also as attractive as possible. i know in the long run, we won’t be able to keep everything baby related aesthetically pleasing, but at this point i can try.

starting your registry from scratch seems so overwhelming, because i too had no idea where to start — so looking at other peoples essentials and talking to moms made it a lot easier. if you’re in the same boat and having trouble even trying to begin working on your registry, hopefully this cohesive list will help.  Read More

i had my baby shower a couple of weeks ago and it was sooo much fun. it was so nice to have something fun to look forward to that didn’t include anything besides friends and eating and celebrating (a nice change of pace from newborn classes and stroller shopping and crib assembling and all that boring baby stuff you have to do)
