Beauty while you ZZZ

I am a big fan of sleep. Unlike most people my age, I can’t sleep for five hours and be okay. I need a good 8 hours + of sleep every night or the next day I feel useless. (Newborn stage, I was a walking ZOMBIE) I typically go to bed around ten every night and am up at seven every morning. As a lover of sleep, you can only imagine I am a also a fan of good bedding. We have layers upon layers of down, memory foam, gel and high thread counts. I know I may sound a little ridiculous, but you spend almost half your life in a bed… I think it should be comfortable. I had heard about Slip Silk Pillowcases a while ago, but never made the plunge to purchase them. We recently received two King Size covers for our pillows and Ian and I have both been converted. Ian’s favorite thing about them is the fact they are incredibly soft and stay cool all night, and I am a huge fan of how they help with anti-aging and decrease…

Let’s Be Honest Mamas | All About Sleep | Giveaway to aden + anais

  Sleep is a hot topic among young mamas, and we’re all desperately seeking it. I am so excited to be teaming up with the lovely Hannah Renee and the Let’s Be Honest Mamas to share a little about sleep, or the lack thereof, we’ve experienced with Cove. We are also hosting a fun giveaway for two mama’s to receive a $100 gift card to aden + anais on Instagram, so be sure to check it out. We just recently got this silky soft shibori dream blanket, and I am obsessed. It is SO SOFT. I have actually contemplated stealing it from Cove’s room so I can curl up with it. Anyways… back to sleep… Here are my answers. How well does your babe sleep? Sleeping through the night? Taking good naps? None of the above? I almost feel a little bad sharing because I don’t want to jinx myself with our next kid, but Cove started sleeping through the night at about two months. We had a harder time with naps, but once we got in a good routine, he…

Thoughts on Things | Hanx Writer, Sense & Bradley Castañeda

So my lists will probably consist more of cool gadgets, apps, productivity things I’m trying and so on. Enjoy! Hanx Writer App. I’m not a writer, nor do I claim to be, but a recent iPad app Tom Hanks released makes me want to be one… In my efforts of balancing a digital and analog life, I’m always trying to find ways to either completely remove technology from what I’m doing, or finding that happy medium. The Hanx Writer app fits those parameters for me. It’s basically just a typewriter app for your iPad, but what makes it different, other than Tom Hanks creating it, are the genuine sounds and interactions. It’s beautiful. I’ve started writing a book with it. Seriously. Sense by Hello. I backed this project last month and can’t wait to receive it later this year. I love finding things on Kickstarter to fund for many reasons. It’s great to be a part of something from the startup and usually cheaper to help fund something now than later when the price goes up. Bradley Castañeda. I follow a lot of…
