Spoiler alert: Do not scroll down to the end of this post just yet (please!)

I don’t know what was more exciting – finding out I was pregnant or finding out the gender of my sweet little baby Hendrix. If you watched my first trimester VLOG, then I’m sure you hated me by the end of it when I left you HANGING on the gender! (the good old cliff hanger move!)

When my doctor told me I could find out the sex of our child as early as 12 weeks (Thanks to a little non-invasive test called NIPT) I …

My Visit to Instagram Headquarters

Lifestyle | July 12, 2017

Yesterday I took a little field trip down to the Instagram headquarters in Culver City. You’re probably wondering how in the world I was able to do this? My management team got us in touch with our contact over there who helped us set up a meeting to come in, explore, and sit with someone to get some Insta-tips. I’ve been looking forward to this visit for a while because I had tons of questions I wanted to ask them!

Facebook obviously owns Instagram so when we arrived into the Facebook building, the first thing that drew my attention was …

If you caught yesterday’s surprise IG post, then you’ve probably already heard the news. It feels really surreal finally getting to share what I’m about to type. EXCITING NEWS PART 2.

If you read the part 1 post then you probably know the story of the new home and how that came about. There’s a second part to that story, of course. When we were house hunting all around Los Angeles and beyond, I WAS PREGNANT and didn’t even know it. In our new house, there’s a huge second closet in the master room that was converted into a …

Hey guys, hope you’re having a great weekend! Today I’m unboxing my most recent Bless Box 🙂 I dubbed this one, “Here Comes Summer!” as many of us are getting ready to enter a more relaxing season.;) This month, I included a cute pair of light-weight sunnies that I designed especially for my Bless babes. It comes in a variety of colors (as many of you have seen) and it’s perfect for any upcoming summer activities. P.S. Can you believe Bless Box has been on the ground for 6 months now?! I started this from scratch so it’s been one …

Happy Monday! I figured I would jump start the week with a fun little survey sharing 25 things you don’t know about me. Anyone else agree with #20? lol

3. I’ve always wanted to go on an African safari.
4. I was a TERRIBLE math student.

I have some exciting news to share with you today. When Stevie and I moved to Los Angeles over 4 years ago to chase two separate careers, we never  imagined our dreams would collide and become one. To paint the picture for you: before we got married, I was a hot mess living at my sister’s apartment, and Stevie was a hungry actor living paycheck to paycheck just trying to stay alive in this crazy city. When we joined forces and decided to work on my blog full-time, we were excited about this new venture and the spark it brought …

I read an article this morning that said Instagram has over 600 million active users a month and over 400 million active users DAILY. My mouth dropped! Can we flash back for a second. Do you remember your first Instagram post? For me, that was over 4,000 photos ago and back in 2011 when frames and filters were all the rage. I’ve definitely gone back and cleaned up my profile since then so I really can’t remember my first post! #slightlybummed

This might sound funny but I can’t imagine my life without Instagram today. It’s been a mega platform that …

I can’t believe I’ve been living in Los Angeles for almost 5 years. I was driving through Hollywood Boulevard the other day (to get to an appointment) and I had one of those flash back moments from when I first visited LA. I was 18 or so and remember REALLY wanting to see as much as I can. From the Hollywood Walk of Fame and Beverly Hills sign to walking down Rodeo Drive pretending I was Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman. When you visit a city like LA, there’s so much you want to see while soaking everything in.
