Big Boy Room: Neutral Dinosaur

For my son's 3rd birthday, I wanted to give him a "big boy room". He was ready to transition out of his crib and we had a queen mattress waiting for him in the basement. The vision: NEUTRAL DINO! I was searching Pinterest for months, pulling pieces from all over to create my vision board. I wanted something that he could grow into as he gets older so stuck with pieces of furniture (bed, dresser, light) that he could have for years and then little accents he could change out as his interests change (comforter, prints, etc).

Things to do at Patriots Place (with kids), Foxboro, MA - Staycation Edition

Looking to plan a trip to Patriots Place with your kids? There is plenty to do! Whether it be a day trip or a staycation I have some kid-friendly recommendations to share with you!

We only live about 20 minutes from Patriots Place but thought it would be fun to do a 2-night "staycation" because daycare was closed for the kids and we needed to take the day off anyway.

It's always so crazy to me how much stuff you need to pack when traveling with kids- even if it is just 20 min down the road! So we packed up and off we went with our 2.5-year-old and 8-month-old after they woke up from their naps. We parked (free parking!) and checked into The Renaissance Hotel at 4PM. The hotel lobby is so beautiful! 

Incline or flat walking pad? Egofit discount codes for both!

It's been 2 months since I made the decision to swap out my aseptically pleasing desk at home for a standing desk with a walking pad and it was the BEST decision I have ever made. Not only do I feel great during/after using my walking pad my productivity at work has skyrocketed! 

I had the opportunity to try out 2 different types of walking pads from Egofit: one with a slight incline and a flat one. I love them both for different reasons which I will share more of below.

Big Wall Decor Review: Big, Swappable, Affordable Wall Art With Discount Code!!

If you have a spot where you need big, massive, large, whatever you want to call it art- keep reading, trust me!! I've had a spot in my living room that I had been staring at for the last 2.5 years since we moved in and I couldn't figure out what to put there. I knew it needed to be BIG but wanted high-quality art & that comes with a hefty price tag. Then I learned about BIG... a two-party wall system that offers massive wall art, designed by real artists, that is swappable & affordable. GENIUS!

Bedroom Refresh With The Home Depot

This post is sponsored by The Home Depot

When we moved into our house in December of 2020 decorating our bedroom wasn't on the top of the list. I ordered a king size mattress, bed, and some $30 night stands off of Facebook marketplace. I hung the sheer curtains that we had in the living room of our condo until I knew I could find something I loved. With the start of the new year, I wanted to freshen up the space and make it ours. The walls were so bare and the room needed some warmth and coziness. 

I am so excited to have partnered with The Home Depot and their exclusive store, The Company Store to make that happen! They have a great selection of furniture and home decor for every room. All items can be found exclusively at The Home Depot via or through The Home Depot mobile app. 

Here are some before pictures...

A rotating/swivel convertible car seat? 1000% yes please! There are a few out on the market and today I am here to review the new innovative City Turn by Baby Jogger. The City Turn has a lot to offer and makes getting your child in and out of the car so much easier. Getting my son in and out of the carseat has always been a struggle- wether it was tweaking my neck, hitting his head trying to cram him into the car sideways, or awkwardly trying to untangle the straps with my hands upside down. 

 Keep reading to learn more about the awesome features this rotating car seat has to offer.

Baby Jogger gifted me the City Turn but the review below is my honest opinion.
