Fall Fest, Washed Ashore & Music Class!

Last weekend Zelda and I had every intention of getting out and hitting up Expo Chicago, but we were both too beat from the week! Instead we had a much needed lazy weekend with a few trips to the park (and a few cake pop excursions!). We'll be there next year, but this weekend I'm …

Back to School: Preschool Pressure

It’s back to school season and I have felt more pressure around parenting over the last few months than I have since Zelda was born. The general perception is that if you aren’t sending your child to preschool something must be wrong. Preschool is the new kindergarten and Zelda was one of the only children among her peers that didn’t …

Let’s Talk About Bluemercury Beauty

My love for Bluemercury is no secret and I’ve been a fan of theirs for as long as I can remember. I initially fell in love with the store because they carry all my favorite brands in one place and the staff is extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Fast forward a few years and Bluemercury …

Kelly Nelson

My official title is mom. It was a decision I made before I even had kids. I was one of those annoying girls that thought she wanted to be a stay at home and didn’t want a career. It was probably a decision that shouldn’t have been made by a 24-year-old girl. Anyway, I loved that I did get to …

What to Do This Weekend: Summer Nature Fest, $1 Movies & More!

Zelda and I are living that #lakelife this weekend, but for those of you still in the city there is plenty to do.

As Zelda has grown older, my heart breaks a little more every morning when she begs me not to leave and starts sobbing when I head …
