I feel like I’ve been building up to this shopping ban for a while. I attempted a 30 day “no buy” back in April but didn’t quite make it. I’ve just had this nagging feeling that I need to SHOP LESS. It has been showing up in different ways in my life lately- lots of signs!  I have multiple reasons for wanting to do it, which I’ll share below, but ultimately it’s about control.

Guys, I have a total weakness for baked goods. Mmm. It’s partially a “comfort” thing because I grew up baking with my mom and sisters. It makes me happy!  My 3 year old already bakes with me all the time. We try to balance making healthier dishes with treats like this though.  He’s not even a big cinnamon roll eater- he just wants the icing and sugar haha

I know I just posted a recipe here the other day but I had to get this recipe up in time for Mother’s Day because there is no treat I’d want more than this one!

I’m a bit obsessive when it comes to packing for trips. I don’t know why… I’m not usually a very organized person but there’s something about traveling that brings it out in me, I guess!  I’ll pack a week early, plan out outfits, buy travel sized items etc  So when my husband and I decided we were going to drive to North Carolina (from WA State), I started planning it out right away!

Placenta

Okay, I know, some people are totally grossed out by the thought of keeping and consuming your placenta…  but I really do feel like it helps with recovery! With my first baby I had it encapsulated but with my second I consumed it raw in a smoothie where I couldn’t taste it at all! In fact, I found the encapsulated pills had a stronger taste.  I definitely “bounced back” energy-wise a lot faster after my second baby;

Sugar is a tricky bastard. A little bit can be totally enjoyable but consume too much and you can end up with headaches, bloated stomach, no energy, restless sleep and skin breakouts! Knowing how much is too much can be tricky too. Generally it’s recommended that you stay under 25g if added sugar per day but you may find it depends what kind of sugar or maybe 25g is just way too much for you!

By “new moms”, I mean mom’s with a new baby! Doesn’t matter if it’s your first or sixth, having a new baby is amazing but CHALLENGING!  I think we can all agree we can use the extra help during that time, right?  Since the holidays are quickly approaching, I thought I’d round up some great gift ideas whether it’s for Christmas or a baby shower or a sip n see (what I plan on doing this time!) or a “holy crap you just had a baby let me get you something”

I turn 30 on July 11! The big 3-0!

Honestly, I’m excited about it.  For the most part I’m really happy with where I am in my life, at this age.  I feel comfortable going into my 30’s and that’s a good feeling.

I always make a wish list for my birthday. Not because I expect gifts but because I like lists. haha This year’s kinda made me chuckle because it’s so grown up.
