The Sweet Edit

November 16, 2018

Happy Friday, sweet friends! It’s another Sweet Edit!

“Taking care of yourself is part of taking care of your kids.” 

I found that quote on Pinterest and it might be my favorite yet.

Am I the only one who needs to remind myself this daily? As moms, we are last on the list. And no, I’m not playing the martyr or feeling sorry for myself. It’s just part of the gig.

There are only so many hours in the day and it can be damn near impossible to find time for myself. But, that’s when I remember that taking care of myself truly is part of taking care of my kids. It’s that whole “put your oxygen mask on first, and then help your child” thing. 

These days, taking care of myself doesn’t mean a spa day followed by a boozy dinner. (HA! Could you imagine.) It means taking 15 minutes to read a chapter or two of my book before my eyes close at the end of the day. It means scheduling an hour to work out and sweat out the toxins. It means getting up early to enjoy my coffee in peace. 

How do you take care of yourself? Let me know below!

Oh, and have you signed up for the newsletter yet? The second one goes out tomorrow morning! I’ll be sharing a sneak peek of next week’s Gift Guide for Her, the top 5 items of the week, my latest #momlife struggle and more…

Sweet Edit, Loving

My cozy Barefoot Dreams blanket is back in stock! It comes in 3 colors and makes an awesome gift.

I haven’t been able to put down this book. But am I surprised? NOPE. Major mom crush.

These Otherland candles (c/o) not only smell AMAZING, but the packaging is the prettiest I’ve seen. Even better? It’s female founded and owned. Thank you, Otherland.

This $27 striped cardigan is currently in my cart and will be on my doorstep soon. It’s like magic.

The most flattering dress ever is on major sale! It comes in 8 colors. Size up. (Oh, and did I mention it has a cult following and gets rave reviews?)

Sweet Edit, shopping

So many of the fair isle things, and a lot of them are on sale.
