Daily Harvest Review + DIY Daily Harvest Mint Cacao Smoothie

In Food & Recipes by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

I have had my eye on Daily Harvest and their yummy-looking smoothies + bowls + bites for a while. If you’re not familiar with Daily Harvest, you can read all about it here, but the basic premise is that it’s a high-quality food delivery service. You fill a box (either monthly or weekly or in a frequency that suits you) and it comes on dry ice with your selections. The Good: -The quality of the ingredients used in their products … Read More

As a busy mom with minimal time to get ready most days, I’ve found that having a good, basic “grown up” makeup routine makes it really easy to put myself together for the day without having to think too hard about it. It’s a perfect base for … Read More

Clean Makeup 101

In Fashion by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

Over the last five years I’ve come a LONG way in my learnings and understanding of what “clean” truly means in terms of skincare and color cosmetics. I’ve still got a lot to learn, but one of the biggest areas of growth I’ve experienced personally has been becoming a more critical thinker who knows how to ask the right questions and find the right answers even if I don’t know the answer off the top of my head. I’ve also … Read More

I’ve linked some of my favorite tights + … Read More

My Clean Hair Care Routine

In Fashion by Madison Mayberry1 Comment

Over the years, my hair has gone through a lot! Having three babies in less than five years has kept me in a constant cycle of postpartum hair loss + hair re-growth, finally getting my hair to a good place only to start all over with another pregnancy. One of the biggest contributing factors to helping me keep my hair feeling strong and healthy began when I ditched conventional shampoos, conditioners, dry shampoos and other styling products and swapped them … Read More

A Case for the Side Hustle

In Uncategorized by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

Hi friends! I’m back into the daily grind after a weekend away in Minneapolis with some of my very favorite people. Time spent with my Beautycounter tribe always takes a little bit of time to process after it’s over because, let’s be honest, it’s strange. It’s strange that most of these amazing humans wouldn’t be in my life if it wasn’t for Beautycounter. As I processed what this work + team mean to me, I came back around again and … Read More

The Aftermath of Heart Surgery

In Uncategorized by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

I’ve been wanting to write about the topic of trauma for a while, but finding the words to describe my experience over the last six months hasn’t been easy. While we were still in Ann Arbor after Truett’s heart surgery, someone (I can’t remember who) sent me a message on Instagram telling me that it was OK not to be OK. At the time, I brushed it off. I was on a HIGH. I had seen God work in some … Read More

Sinus Surgery :: 2 1/2 Years Later

In Uncategorized by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

It’s been 2 1/2 years since I underwent sinus surgery to help with my recurrent sinus infections and sinus headaches. Some of you probably remember when I was contemplating getting the surgery – and how many days of the year I spent crippled with sinus infections – and when I got the surgery done a few months after Collins was born. I went back and forth trying to decide wether or not to get the surgery. Despite trying all the … Read More

As I’ve looked back on our baby favorites over the years one thing sticks out to me – quality always wins!

Truett’s CHD Story (part 2)

In Uncategorized by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

Writing out Truett’s story has been the hardest thing I’ve done in recent months. I look back at these photos and find it both incredibly therapeutic and helpful to process and entirely traumatic at the same time. While we were in these days I was so focused on being strong for Truett and surviving that I didn’t have time to actually FEEL the feelings associated with what I was going through. So, it’s taken me a little time to get … Read More

Truett’s CHD Story (Part 1)

In Uncategorized by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

First, I want to say that I’m writing this mainly for myself. As I’ve navigated the last two months post heart surgery and all that transpired with Truett, I’ve been blessed (or sometimes I think cursed) with a crystal clear memory of all that transpired. And before those memories fade, I want to make sure I have documented this tender, terrifying and miraculous time in our lives and in Truett’s life. Some may find this helpful, others may find it … Read More
