We have a beyond gorgeous and dreamy maternity shoot to share with you today and we couldn’t be more excited! Alexis Ramos Photo shot the lovely Jessica and they went for a very tropical feel. Everything came together seamlessly between the location, the lighting, her flowing dress and headpiece. The way they were able to catch the sun just as it was setting couldn’t have created a better mood if they had tried! Looking through these photos we can smell the sea salty air, the breeze in our face, and our toes in the sand.
We sure love a great party around here filled to the brim with inspiring details and todays Little Indian birthday party designed by Frallalà Event planner & design has all that + more! We were instantly drawn to the geometric ornaments, feathers and succulents everywhere! Each party guest was greeted with their own handmade headdresses and bows and played in tents filled with pillows.Every great party needs a great dessert table and we are just smitten with the display of goodies from campfire cupcakes to target cookies, teepee cones and marshmallow arrows! Little Daniele sure had one fun + fab second birthday!

Thing muted pinks or blushing shades paired with nudes, seafoam green + blues this season!
We couldn’t be more excited for Easter to come this year! Between dying eggs, eating festive treats and celebrating with egg hunts, one of the traditions we have every year is celebrating the holiday with a big Easter brunch. The whole family comes together to celebrate and lucky for you we are sharing our favorite carrot pancake recipe! We promise this will become an instant favorite and we know your little peanuts will absolutely love them. Did we mention they are healthy too?! Winning all around!

2-4 tbs honey or agave syrup (or sweetener of choice to taste)
3/4 cup Carrots, finely grated
Optional: 2 tbs walnuts, chopped, 2 tbs golden raisins
Cream Cheese Frosting
1/2 cup (4oz) Low fat cream cheese, softened in the microwave for 30 seconds
1/4 cup Low sugar or sugar free maple syrup
Dash Cinnamon and honey (or to taste)
Blend the pancake ingredients together.
Meanwhile, heat a nonstick griddle (or large nonstick skillet) coated with cooking spray over medium heat. Spoon about 1/4 cup of batter per pancake onto griddle. Turn pancakes over when tops are covered with bubbles and edges look cooked.
To make the cream cheese frosting, whisk together the softened cream cheese, syrup, cinnamon and stevia in a small bowl until smooth. Drizzle over pancakes while warm if desired! Enjoy!
Modern + bold is where it’s at when it comes to interior design with contrasting black and white paired with pops of colors. We love the fun and bright vibe of Gabriel’s big boy room designed by the talented team at Sissy + Marley! It’ stylish and also functional with lots of space to play and be inspired. What little boy wouldn’t want to call this space his very own? Don’t be afraid to mix and match bold patterns from the rug to the bedding, wall paper and even artwork. And double up your decor pieces with actual toys your little peanuts can play with! Everything about this room is just perfection and filled with so much fun + inspiration!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! We are excited to celebrate one of our favorite colors and if you need an easy and fun activity to do today we’ve got you covered! Grab some green and white paper, scissors and glue and have fun creating this cute mosaic shamrock art piece!
Start by tracing a shamrock onto a sheet of paper. Cut up lots of pieces of different shades of green paper. Let your little peanuts help glue them onto the shamrock shape to create their own mosaic artwork. Hang up on the wall or fridge! This is a fun craft to do all year long for different holidays… just change out the shape!
Happy Monday Mommas! We are excited to start this week off by sharing one of our favorite maternity basics brand, STORQ! If you are currently prego or thinking about in it the future, we promise these basics will change your life and your maternity fashion! You don’t need a whole new wardrobe, just the basics! Want to know why we love STORQ so much? Well we will tell ya! Their fabric is knitted with supersoft Lenzing Modal,a CO2-neutral fiber that comes from sustainably harvested beechwood forests. Trust us when we say their products are as comfortable + soft as they get and we are pretty sure you will be living in them every day! We also love their adaptable silhouettes that can be worn in different ways throughout pregnancy and as your body transitions back after pregnancy. From the perfect (no to mention comfortable) dress you can wear dressed up or down to a lunch date, to leggings and long tanks for lounging around the house, these basics are a must for any mama! Check out how we styled them below and see why we love them so much!
When it comes to Spring fashion we are all about a little edge paired with classic styles and today we are sharing a few more looks from our spring magazine issue. We can’t get enough of peter pan collard tops by Wren & James and this black rendition is just too cute paired with retro skinny jeans and a colored high top boots! For the boys this spring think tees and henleys laired with flannel tops that can be tired around their waist on hotter days, and skinny jeans from Rowen Christian. Have we mentioned yet how much we are loving anything from Zuzii Footwear?! Honestly, everything from their oxford shoes to their sandals are perfect for spring and summer! Check out how we styled these looks below photographed by Becky Kimball.
With St. Patrick’s Day just around the corner we have the perfect lunch for you and your littles! Our green pea soup with cheddar scallion panini is not only festive in color but it is super yummy with a healthy kick, now how could you go wrong with that. The soup is really easy to make and chances are that you may already have all the ingredients in your cupboard. We hope you are your littles and have fun on St. Patrick’s Day!
Green Pea Soup with Cheddar Scallion Panini
– 3 tablespoons butter
– 4 scallions
– 3 boxes (10 ounces each) frozen peas
– 1 can (14.5 ounces) reduced-sodium chicken broth
– 1 1/2 cups shredded sharp white cheddar (6 ounces)
– 8 slices sourdough bread
– Coarse salt and ground pepper
– 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1. In a large saucepan, heat 1 tablespoon butter over medium. Add scallions, and cook, stirring, until softened, 1 to 2 minutes. Add peas, broth, and 3 cups water. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to a simmer. Cook until peas are tender, about 5 minutes; set aside.
2. In a medium bowl, toss cheddar with scallions. Make 4 sandwiches with cheddar mixture and bread.
3. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon butter over medium-low. Place sandwiches in skillet, and cook until golden, 3 to 4 minutes per side, adding remaining tablespoon butter to skillet to cook second side.
4. Working in batches, puree soup in a blender until smooth (filling blender only halfway to prevent spattering). If necessary, adjust consistency with a little bit of water. Season with salt, pepper, and lemon juice. Slice each panini into four “fingers, and serve with soup.
