My daughter is 5 and would go days without brushing here hair if I didn’t ask her to before we leave the house for the day. I’ll admit that there are still days she doesn’t do it. Why? I’m one of those parents that feels it’s her body, her hair. So as long as it’s clean, looks OK and we’re not on our way to go get pictures I might ask her to brush her hair or let it go. I’d prefer she did her hair, though, so I introduced her to some items that would make doing her hair a bit less frightening (for both of us) and guess what? They work! Read more

Do you take care of yourself? As moms it’s often hard to find the time to sit and relax, let alone think about our own wellness, but it’s time! Today, let’s start with our hair. There’s rarely time to nourish or take care of my hair — I shower then my hair goes in a wet mom bun until bedtime most days. If I actually get a chance to do my hair and go somewhere then I’m using a dryer and curling iron, which just fries my hair a bit more. At the end of the day it’s wavy, dry and lacks volume. So how do moms get through the busy day and somehow manage to take care of their hair too? I think I just found a solution that even works in this summer heat!

Who says moms should have all the fun? Dads spend time with the kiddos too, and so often change up their style a bit. The Daddy Style series is all about maintaining a hip style while being a prepared and engaged parent. Today’s black and grey color pairing allows for a diaper bag guys would totally be OK with toting around, a hip shirt with dad messaging, some headphones for quiet tablet time (sometimes the kids just want it to be a bit too loud and sometimes you want to watch your own thing), and an adorable swaddle set that can serve as a snot rag, blankie or doll cover as the kiddo gets older. I think the “My kid has an awesome dad” shirt says it all. (The following may contain affiliate links, meaning I get a few cents if you buy items.) Read more
