I am going to start this with a simple fact:  I love to shop.  Many of you I am sure can relate with this statement.  Being a busy mom I rarely have the opportunity to go out shopping for myself and most of my shopping is done online.  My style is pretty quirky so when I do shop I try to not only find value for what I am buying but also find unique pieces to add to my collection.

Stylewe is a website and app that is filled with so many unique choices to enhance your wardrobe.  I downloaded the app for my IPhone because shopping is so much easier for me on the go when I am chasing after my little ones.  The app is laid out well and makes it easy to find whatever you are looking for.  The site has stylish and fashionable clothing that can suit any style.  There are many clothing choices made by independent fashion designers and there are so many beautiful and exciting choices.

One of the many things I like about StyleWe is they have free shipping no matter how much you spend.  Right now they are offering 20% off your first order.  Stylewe offers a unique shopping experience that  is hard to find in other commerce websites.  An opportunity to get a beautiful piece of clothing that doesn't look like what everyone else has and supporting independent designers who work so hard on these gorgeous clothing options.  If you are interested in learning more about Stylewe you can visit their website at

The Isolation of Motherhood

Somedays I feel pretty alone in my journey of motherhood.  Day after day of taking care of your kids needs with little to no adult interaction can make you feel like there is no one who understands truly what you are experiencing.  Sometimes my day feels like it is on a repeating loop.  Kids though can always find a way to break through the monotony.  I always try to put myself out there in various meetup playgroups and other mommy and me activities so I can have some adult interaction.  It is always reassuring to know that other mommies are supporting and understanding what you are experiencing.  I think especially in the beginning with a newborn I feel the most isolated.  I am sure the lack of sleep and round the clock exhausting feeding, play a big role in that.  Not to mention that when you are a new mommy, even though I hate to admit the myth, but many of your relationships with your friends who are without kids will change.  I don't know why or how it happens but from my experience I have felt some distance from my childless friends after we had our kids.  I wish many of the friends that I have grown apart from would have wanted to be a part of my life with the children included as well.  I guess when you become a mom as well some of things that were important to you before gets rearranged and it can be hard to relate to.  As time goes on you adapt to a new normal and eventually find others who you have more in common with.  But nothing can replace those friendships from before because they were built on some things deeper than relating to being moms or some shared hobbies/activities.

Hurricane Preparation

Living in Florida for the vast majority of my life I have experienced my fair share of hurricane season. The hysteria that evolves as time continues on and on the weather channel the pure look of excitement when they are reporting the status of a storm.  You can always tell the seasoned floridians from the newer transplants.  The seasoned Floridians don't freak out and take stock of their pantry and fill bottles of water from their water source at home.  Newer Floridians buy food that will last a month and buy as much bottled water as possible.  Fortunately this time the hurricane died down and wasn't nearly as bad as was reported for us.  Unfortunately, Haiti got the brunt of the hurricane.
