Say Hello Salty Crew

 

Welcome babe! I am happy you found your way to my blog 


What goes on in here? Shopping finds, holistic talks, DIY, advice and inspo, dog mom life, boy mom things, home owning, boho and midcentury loving, and just all the things that make up a happy and healthy beautiful life. 

My blog took off with tons of tips and tricks about time management and making your goals and dreams reality. What mom doesn't want to be able to cater to her family while still feeling apart of the business world? It will always feel like there are not enough hours in the day, but surprisingly there are. 

I am a mom and I love being able to cherish and be part of every special moment in my sons life. I work from home and I am really grateful my hubby was able to give our family that opportunity. Between blogging, essential oils business and digital graphic design, I am able to generate an income to offset my love of shopping :) That makes any mom feel good when she is not only able to be home with her child but generate an income too. 

I used to work really, really hard and long days. Now I have learned to work super short days and accomplish way more. I am being way more intentional with my time and it is making all the difference. So if you are where I used to be, poke around my blog, sign up for my newsletters and come learn a bit about how I changed my mindset and lifestyle just a few short years ago. 

It is so manageable and achievable, so don't think it cannot be for you. Everyone has to start somewhere and start small. The longer you wait, the more you're holding yourself out on amazing things for your life and family. 

There are links that will bring you to helpful blog posts, exclusive online communities and places to help you get started with ease. Get pumped and stay motivated because now is the time to make the changes for a different tomorrow. You are going to live your best life. 

Come join our team and make it happen.

Botanical + Gold Dinosaur Baby Shower

Celebrating Our Baby Boy 

Our baby shower was simply gorgeous and themed so perfect. 
With beautiful hunter greens, gold and natural botanical gardens all over 
there was no better setting to celebrate our baby boy than in the woods at Grandma's! 
It was the perfect Botanical Gold Dinosaur theme. 
The theme still has hearts in my eyes, the menu was perfect and everything was just
put together so beautifully. We celebrated baby boy outside with gorgeous brick walls, natural landscaping and tons of gold dinosaurs. 

The Decor
We even made our own balloon banner and not for nothing, mom and dad did a pretty good job! I say we are definitely prepared for parenthood if we are judging off our balloon banner! haha. 
But really, how adorable did it come out? 
We picked it up on amazon and I also purchased a balloon inflator. At the end, there is a link with everything to shop. Oh and say hi to soon to be big brother Bentley Beasley Elmer! He was the life of the party after multiple escapes from the basement. 
We decorated the tables and areas all over the inside and outside with moss, natural greenery, succulents, plants and spray painted dinosaurs gold. Outside basically decorated itself with nature and we decided to keep it very minimal with additional decor. 
The spray paint is for crafts from the wholesale nursery and definitely recommend getting a really good, brilliant gold spray paint. Trust me, we ran out and learned the hard way. 
Grandma is the queen of decorating her banister. 
She got all the things between the nursery, amazon and what she already had. 
The decor was simply perfect. From the welcome to table, to the activities and the photo booth. My sister in law ran with the vision she has and picked the perfect theme. 
We kept everything as simple, green and natural as possible with a splash of gold dinosaurs. 
I will admit I was major bummed about covid taking away the joy of having a baby shower for so many.
When the option was up to not do a drive by but to have it outside, I was not that excited about it, I will be completely honest considering it was going to be at the end of September and weather was questionable. 
I went by the farmers almanac, 3 months in advance and recommend checking it out when planning outdoor events. 

Grandma sure put on some great covid touches to the party. This was the welcome table with custom made gold dinosaur masks and personal hand sanitizers. 
But, after all was said and done, there was no better setting than outside in the woods with all of natures beauty and greenery. 
It was a beautiful sunny day, a bit chilly, but bright skies and lots of happiness.

The Activities
The Photo BoothMy sister in law had the cutest idea to have the photos put into the album and any words of wisdom for the parents-to-be to be written there! so cute.
For additional entertainment, we had asked guests to help us in making a baby book for our baby boy. 

In the book, the baby dinosaur travels all over the world. The places he travels to were based on our guests favorite places they had traveled. In addition, they wrote down their favorite food from there and favorite thing to do! Together, we created a global educational book for our baby boy to learn and read from.

The Thank You's
My sister-in-law made the cutest Dinosaur wine glasses for each of our guests to take home with handmade wine charms by Grandma! We are currently hunting down the photo I took of them. 
Grandma hand painted the masks with little gold dinosaurs and dinosaur feet for our guests to wear at their comfort. There were lots of adorable hand-made goodies to bring home to remember a great day of celebrating our baby boy. 
The big take away were these adorable dinosaur planters with succulents. 
Grandma found the cutest dinosaur flower pots and we planted succulents for our guests to take home.
We also added a little car ride snack of dinosaur shaped gummy bears! Then we had little burlap bags
to carry everything home since there were multiple gifts throughout the party to take. 

The Menu
The menu was simply amazing. My mom is a very good cook and loves catering all of her own events.
Karen and I stick to themes and decor and the three of us make a pretty good team together throwing some really fun and beautiful parties from shabby chic graduations to Little Lady baby showers, barnyard themes and now this! 

I don't have a single picture of the food, I know crazy considering how delicious. But, we had garlic rosemary butter salmon, filet tips on garlic baguettes and chicken savoy with ceaser salad and crudités. 
The drinks being served were momosa's, lemonade, iced tea, water and an assortment of wines. 

Then came the desserts and they were just out of this world. I haven't had much of a pregnancy sweet tooth but I no shame devoured desserts. 
Baby boys aunt had donuts custom made from Dunkin'. 
They were dipped in party colors and covered with gold and green sprinkles and were delicious.
Lex at Sugar Rush Cookie Co. (find her on facebook or instagram) is our go to for gorgeous hand crafted cookies. She is so sweet to work with and extremely talented at making beautiful and delicious themed cookies. She has made the cookies for all of our special events the last few years.  
 And then the cake by Lisa. Lisa, as well, has been making our special event cakes for the last few years. Her work is out of this world. You simply don't want to eat the cake because it is so gorgeous but you have to because it tastes just as amazing as it looks. The layers were red velvet and lemon, oh my! 
 
The Prize Winners Revealed
We had a great laugh at the end of the party picking the winner for the diaper raffle. 
Our little boys tush is going to be well covered for a very long time! The diapers stacked up the wall after we organized the gift room. 
We were cracking up having the dad-to-be pick the winners of the Vueve Cliquot Champagne. 
If anyone wants a sip, you will have to catch Danielle and Melissa! 
Pending winners will be announced after our baby boy arrives! 
Of course we had a beautiful calendar that Karen, my sister-in-law, made. 
Everyone picked their date and predicted what baby boy will be! 
So excited to see who was the closest or spot on!
Now to get through all of these beautiful and thoughtful gifts for our son, set up his area in the house and send out our thank you's to everyone who spoiled our little man with endless love and happiness. 
We are so thankful to have been able to celebrate with you all and to share our baby shower day! 
Hope you had fun reading about our baby shower and or gained some inspo for your baby shower! 

xoxo

Top Ten Favs


The weather is getting better and I am getting so excited for all things spring! Who else? Our home recently went under full KonMari Transition and brought on all the spring feels. We are obsessed with how much we organized and cleared out. The method was more than just clearing out too, it taught us to appreciate every little thing we have even more than we already did.

Since we have way less clutter, a lot of my favorite things stand out more. Here are my top 10 latest favorites 🤍🌵☀️


Dainty Jewelry Studio on Etsy makes beautiful and affordable jewelry. I love browsing her things and finally selected this adorable gold J necklace. I picked it up in the Fall last year and I have had it on since. I was looking for a while for a dainty gold necklace to sit on my collar bone. I selected the 15" gold filled and I haven't had to take it off for showers or anything, which is right up my ally when it comes to jewelry. The J is for Joey and similar to how I write my J’s too 🤍


2. TUMBLERS  - Starbucks makes the cutest tumblers and they are some of my favoriteS to use. They help me stay on top of drinking water since they are super simple to carry around and have with me throughout the day, no matter what I'm doing. If you've read my best life guide you know I am big about following yourself around with water. These tumblers make it perfect and I love the seasonal exclusive designs.


3. SLIPPERS - Lets just say I felt like I was stepping into butter or silk soft flour when I tried on these slippers. Holy comfort. Coming up in my travel blog post I share all about my latest, insane Walmart finds. I am usually not a walmart shopper but I searched high and low for a super comfortable and affordable house slipper and they had it for the best price. I ended up getting some other great things that I have been loving for travel and will be sharing that in my travel blog post too.  These slippers are memory foam bottoms and were on sale for under $15. Such a good deal and they are so good, thick, warm and well made. I am so happy with these, I had been searching for weeks to find the perfect pair. 
4. AE LEGGINGS - I am legging picky. Are you? I love the high rise aerie chill leggings from American Eagle and the VS Anytime Leggings. VS ones are a little thicker and have extra length, so they are my definite go to for dead of winter + travel. They are so comfortable too and wear well. The AE ones are the perfect light weight but still good thickness and coverage legging. They hold their shape and tuck you in just enough. I love the high rise and where they sit on my ankles also. They are really so good. I love pairing them with the AE boyfriend sweater. I'm all about comfort and this combo is so comfy and well worth the buy.


5. STRESS AWAY ROLL-ON - This roller of essential oils literally saves my every day. I really don't know how else to put it. I am so much more going with flow during chaotic work or home life when I apply or smell this roller. I work so much more efficiently. You need it. It doubles as a perfume too so I love that and our dogs love it for fireworks, car rides, nails and vet visits. It's super compact so it fits perfect in anything. One for the desk, one for the purse, one for your pocket. Seriously, it is that good! 


6. 180 SNACKS SKINNY RICE BARS - probably the most amazing, quick and on the go snack I have found in a long time. Minimal ingredients, low calorie and so many good flavors. These are so good to pop in your purse or leave in the car for super quick snacks. I pair it with my Ningxia Red Packets and mindwise and I am fueled and ready to go for anything at anytime. The combo crushes sluggish days. The antioxidant drink gives you tons of natural energy and is so so beneficial to your health. The bars are the perfect anytime snack and they curb your hunger perfectly. They have so many good flavors to chose from. I find the snack bars at TJMaxx but I linked some here too. 


7. BLUE LIGHT GLASSES - I am up to three pairs! I want them everywhere so that I am always using them. The other day, Joey and I went to meet a friend for lunch in Cape May, NJ. I'm telling ya, I literally could not see the specials board like I used to so I am so happy I invested in a few of these! I have to be way more intentional about wearing them this I stare at screens daily for hours. Here are the three colors I have. I got them from amazon at such good prices and I love the quality. A few were on a crazy flash sale for around $10. Such a good deal for something that will benefit you tremendously if you are always staring at screens.

8. THIS PEN- I love writing with a smooth pen that sharpens my hand writing. At one time or another, we have all written with a pen and noticed how it wrote for us. Let me tell you, these bic pens are that for me. It really is a top favorite right now. For the New Year I picked up this adorable leopard schedule book from Urban Outfitters and I want to keep it nearer than my previous calendars. I love how this pen writes in it and how I can write small with it. This design is sold out but they do have others. It is such a good planner. 

I am loving them. I just ordered one for the guest room and I am debating which one I want for the living room. I am loving all of these but mostly that top middle one! I picked the blue velvet one for the guest room, it pulls the color out of this gorgeous carpet I got for in there. I'll have a blog post up soon on the remodel of that room once it is done. The farmhouse boho combo in there is so dreamy 🤍🌵✨ I cant wait to share it with you all! We have a big, square, country style plaid pouf in the game room that we love from HH Magnolia at Target. Are you on the pouf train?


I finally splurged and got really nice makeup brushes. I am obsessed with how these feel like silk. They are such good quality. They don’t irritate my skin one bit which I love. I went with the YL Savvy Minerals brushes after tons of research since I have super sensitive facial skin. They distribute makeup so nicely too and I need all the help I can get there.

I have a feeling these are going to be on my favorite list for a long time. Another new makeup that I picked up from there was this mascara . I actually swapped the wand out for one I love and I am literally obsessed with the mascara now. It doesn’t get into my eyes, comes off easily when you wash but not easily otherwise. It doesn’t flake or smear and with a different brush, it applies so smoothly and makes your lashes so long and nice. It’s a really nice formula. 

I love the feeling of just loving the things you own. Don’t you? Happy Sunday friends, see you over on facebook!

Your Best Life


my guide is simple + easy and we are diving right.
these are some of the major changes I made. They are so simple, you will have them down in no time. 

MAP YOUR ROUTINE

Where do you struggle when it comes to completing things you want to get done?
It can be rough starting new routines and sticking to them
but if you commit for a short period of time, it becomes natural pretty quick.

Organize your every day tasks with your new tasks and lay out your goals to see. 
Viewing your goals daily allows you to track progress and establish routines.


TIME MANAGEMENT 

When I started following my own to do list/daily guide 
I started to wrap my days up hours early.
it felt so weird at first, but i was left with nothing to do but pick a new project
Now it takes average of 4 hours off of my day....every day! 
This was happening quickly too. I started feeling and seeing the benefits of guiding my time
and it was motivating me to perfect it.
 
"It took more time to get used to the free time I now had than it did following the guide and adjusting to the new routine"
This guide can be a game changer for those who jam up their to do lists
with all the things that pop into their head throughout the day.
This keeps your current to do list clutter free and manageable. 
accomplishing way more in half the time.

 POSITIVITY 

Your mind has to be with you when you start living your best life. 
Think positively, view situations in a positive way and be a positive version of yourself.
It really does create good vibes and good things happen when you live life positively. 
 
Although this step is small, it is the most important and challenging. 


HEALTHY HABITS 

You can't be living your best life without a routine and life full of healthy habits. 
Creating routine is creating a healthy habit.
Shifting your mindset positively is a healthy habit. 
But it does go beyond that. Exercise, nutrition, toxic free products and more contribute to overall healthy habits.

When you feel good, when your body is fueled properly and not dragged down by toxic chemicals
you're ready to take on anything. 

The fun part is my online community is a great place to stay motivated and hold yourself accountable. 
+ with my weekly or monthly newsletters, mentor ships, monthly informational classes, Live Q+A and real time answers
So, sign up for those definitely at the end here. 
 
 
SURROUNDINGS  

Surround yourself with people who BUILD you up, encourage you to grow and be/feel your best and ones who are positive! 
Make your surroundings your cheer squad and fill it with people and vibes that are happy, positive and motivating. 

Clear your space so that you can clear your mind. 
I am obsessed with the KonMarie method for this. 
Our house is completely Marie Kondo and if you haven't done that to yours yet
message me stat for that link! 


SLEEP HABITS 

Get in that good sleep and be consistent about it.
It makes such a difference! 
I set the alarm on my phone to alert me when my ideal bed time is approaching.
Helps hold me accountable (there is that word again!)

I prefer early mornings and learned this on my journey. I am my best then, so I want to be up and active then. 
With my guide structuring my days and keeping on track, my work days come to an end basically by noon.

That took a week to set into routine and one I have been maintaining with such EASE.
So GO set that alarm.
Find what times work best for you to be winding down and HITTING THAT GRIND. 
Hold yourself accountable and get into routine. 
 
Some days I would hit the snooze button.
But the more I stick to healthy routines and habits....
I don’t need to hit that button anymore. 

It has become NATURAL.
In a matter of weeks to wake up refreshed and ready. 
I have noticed major differences in my energy levels too. 
 

VISION BOARD

I have never actually made a tangible vision board
But I have my goals written down and images to match in an album on my phone. That is my vision board.
When I view them, my goals, dreams and vision ..... are CLEAR AS DAY
I know what I want it to be and how I want it to look. 
 
Who do you want to be?
What do you want your life to look like?
What are your goals and dreams?
It can be filled with anything, and if you need an extra push, 
join the group, get some ideas and make your DREAM vision board to stay motivated.

 click the photo for my free time management guide 
Want to create your own time management accountability task list like I did?
It took under a WEEK for me to start seeing positive results from this. 
It took me about 15 minutes to put together 
And every week, changes are made.
It will always need changes
Because new goals are coming, old goals are being crushed and 
more and more, your daily must tasks will become second nature and you won't need the "reminder"
