Sometimes I Blog
November 05, 2015
I've been having a love/hate relationship with social media lately. Having a smartphone attached to my hip makes life convenient but can also unintentionally suck up what little free time I have. Sometimes I wish I can UNPLUG and crawl under a rock but let's be honest, I can't really go completely off the grid. Especially since I need to be accessible in case of family emergency. My daughter is depending on me to be reliable. You can imagine my delight when my husband introduced me to this kickstarter campaign. The light phone is your cellphone stripped down to the bare essentials. It's also the size of a credit card and looks super clean. I think I need this in my life.

One of my girlfriends asked me what I would have done differently my first year of parenthood. honestly? i would have chilled the f*ck out. Granted lots of that anxiety stemmed from the fact that I had no idea what I was doing half the time. You'd think that your motherly instincts would just kick into high gear the moment you bring a child into the world but most of the time it just feels like you're navigating through a fog - and sometime you get hijacked by pirates. Schedules owned me. I used to refer to my daughter as a ticking time bomb because if she was the slightest bit hungry or tired - you'll know it. And although schedules still kinda own me (I'm a stickler about nap/bed times) I try not to let myself crumble when we have an off day (or week). You just gotta roll with it.

I got hit up by Annie from A Little Bundle which is a monthly subscription of curated goods for babes and moms! It turns out that Annie has a background in the fashion industry and she has a knack for seeking out unique, up and coming merchandise. I'll tell you this, when I became a parent I was overwhelmed by the choices in the market. A lot of it was crap, many were great but mainly it took way too much effort to research and choose. A Little Bundle is like a personal shopper, bringing you quality goods and I love the fact that moms are included too! It's an honor to be able to partner with her for this giveaway of one of our MILK LIFE onesies and $25 store credit to A Little Shop! Check out their instagram feed for more details!
