Nightcap with Nespresso VertuoLine

Isn’t there just something about a cup of coffee or an espresso after a really good meal? Well, imagine if that coffee was poured over vanilla ice cream or laced with a bit of rum.

Afternoon Sip and Savor with Nespresso VertuoLine

The Fancy Ponytail

DIY Halloween Costume: Cotton Candy

I lied. THIS is definitely my favorite Halloween costume. Ever. I actually challenge you to find one that is cuter because I'm 100% convinced that it doesn't exist. Even my now 5 month old, Thea Grace, thinks she looks pretty darn cute. Well, she did until she started eating the fabric batting and (bad) mom cracked up laughing instead of helping the poor girl.

DIY Halloween Costume: Pinata

This might be my favorite halloween costume. Ever. Probably because my funny little guy thought the costume was completely hilarious and couldn't stop laughing. But mostly because he looks like a real freaking pinata!! I am obsessed. Plus the fringe is laid onto standard clothes so there is no itchiness or frustration at all. Thanks to Ruthie...

DIY Halloween Costume: Jellyfish

Confession. I am one of those mothers who waits until the days before Halloween, then frantically flies around town trying to piece together whatever is left in my kids' sizes. Well, I should say I WAS that mother. Until we started crafting our own costumes a few years back and I realized that even the simplest ideas can be made entirely magical. Case in point? This year's jellyfish costume for my 6 year old.
