My Mom’s Sugar Cookie Recipe

You all know I LOVE to bake and love sweets! Today on the blog, I am sharing my Mom’s famous sugar cookie recipe. If you grew up with me or went to school with me, then you probably tasted one of my Mom’s cookies. Every holiday or school event, my Mom always baked and decorated the tastiest and prettiest sugar cookies.


Best King Cake Recipe (Valentine’s Edition)

Let me first say, making a King Cake from scratch is A LOT of work but so worth it! I made my first one this past weekend. It was the perfect opportunity to make one because the weather was so cold and rainy outside and it’s been something I have wanted to bake for some time. Not to brag, but my king cake turned out AMAZING! Just make sure you have a lot of patience because it took almost all day to complete.


Stay Cozy with Serena and Lily

I truly can’t believe 2019 has come to an end and 2020 is here! The Christmas clutter is out and I’ve got organization on my brain. This is my first post of 2020 and like everyone I’ve been thinking of what my goals and resolutions will be for the New Year. Since Christmas, I’ve been living in my new cozy pajamas by Serena and Lily and making my to do lists and getting organized! January for me is always a restart and I believe that living well begins at home.


Bar Cart Style Two Ways with Serena and Lily

The tree is out and decorations are put away and my house never felt so clean! It’s my first post since before Christmas and it feels so good to get my laptop out and start typing after a much-needed break. Does anyone else feel like your house looks empty after you take your Christmas down? But I secretly kind of love it! Even though I am sad the holidays are over, I am excited for a new year, new opportunities, healthy habits and a fresh outlook. Since my house feels so clean, it always makes me crave a new project for my house because living well begins at home. Some of my projects include, recovering my two club chairs in my living room, start working on and wallpapering Mignonne’s big girl room and finish my bedroom. Since all these projects will take some time, I love that my new Serena and Lily Bar Cart will instantly satisfy me and be the perfect piece for my dining room. I love that I can style my bar cart as an everyday piece but also quickly flip it for entertaining!

Best for Baby

Like all Moms, I want the BEST for my baby! Babies require a lot of things and when you need something you need it quickly. Walmart is not only the BEST place for all things baby but they also offer Next-Day Delivery, which is a huge lifesaver for us, busy moms out there. Walmart carries literally everything, from nursery furniture to baby food and everything in between. This past year, Walmart has been my one stop shop for all things baby. They have the largest selection of all the top premium and high quality brands.
