Yesterday I covered gifts that I’m getting my girls (ages 5-7) and today I’m covering gifts for little boys (2-4) that I have either purchased for Truett in the past or that I’m getting for him this year. I never want to add to clutter in your home or gifts that won’t get used, but these items are all thoughtfully chosen to encourage open-ended play and creativity. Every item on this list has been used for hours on end and … Read More

Holiday Gifts for Girls

In Family by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

Call me crazy, but I’ve already been shopping for Christmas gifts for our kids. It helps the budget to spread items out over the course of a couple months, and helps me to think more strategically about what I want to get the kids rather than grabbing things last minute. Over the next few weeks I’m going to be sharing some gift lists for girls, boys and more so you can shop intentionally with me this year! YOTO PLAYERI got … Read More

How I Make Amazing Coffee and Lattes at Home

In Family, Food & Recipes by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

About a month and a half ago, a friend of my kept talking about making amazing lattes and coffee at home. She had been using Cometeer Coffee flash frozen coffee pods – small shots of espresso from specialty coffee roasters – to make lattes and cups of coffee (Americanos). I finally caved and ordered a subscription box. Typically I’m not a huge fan of subscription services, but I’m also a BIG fan of great coffee, so I decided to give … Read More

In Food & Recipes by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

Hi, friends! We are in full school mode over here and paired with football season, kids activities, work schedule getting busier and more, it’s easy for dinnertime and healthy meals to fall to the back burner. Our slow cooker is invaluable to me during the fall and winter when time is usually easier to come by during the earlier hours of the day and increasingly hard to come by as the day goes on – with school pickup, needier kids, … Read More

Spotlight On: Total Master Bedroom Refresh

If you’ve been in my house, most of my home is washed in white paint. I love the fresh look and feel of white, but lately I’ve been craving a little bit of something moodier and darker in our home. Our master bedroom has been something that I’ve wanted to refresh for a while now, and over the last few weeks I’ve been slowly working to make things over. I started with some inspiration from the photos below, which were … Read More

I shared on Instagram my favorite pairs of jeans heading into fall… not to get ahead of myself but the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has got me thinking about jeans and cooler temps!

Nordstrom Sale Purchases

In Fashion by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

I don’t tend to go “all out” for Nordstrom’s N Sale, but every year I pick a piece or two that’s a bit higher quality/higher price point to invest in at a great price heading into the fall. I love the N Sale for that reason! This year I picked the items listed below, heavy on the jeans (because I need some for fall that fit well post baby) and a couple sweaters along with a pair of shoes that … Read More

My Clean Skincare Routine

In Family, Fashion by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

Years ago, I had a goal of developing a “big girl skincare routine.” It seemed silly to me when I said it out loud, but I longed to feel better in my skin and enjoy the products I was using. As I went through a series of miscarriages, I also became increasingly interested in making sure my skincare was clean and free of toxins, hormone disrupting ingredients and more. Over the years of partnering with Beautycounter, I’ve come to love … Read More

Easy Idea :: Kiddie Happy Hour Platter

In Family, Food & Recipes by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

We’ve gotten into a bit of a summer rhythm of doing “kiddie happy hours” with snack plates pretty enough for adults but made for little eaters to enjoy. I’ve found that if I can get ahead of the hangry meltdowns things tend to go much better, but if I don’t plan ahead, my kids eat junk and fill up on foods that aren’t so healthy. My solution? Kiddie Happy Hour! Lately I’ve been lining a large baking sheet with parchment … Read More

I’ve shared on social that I’ve been looking at ways to make more sustainable choices in my wardrobe. While I know that might mean more upfront investment in pieces designed to last and of higher quality. as I was taking inventory of my favorite pieces in my wardrobe today, they are the items that I’ve invested in and cared for well over time.
