So recently I asked on my Instagram stories what topics regarding motherhood were you guys most interested in me writing about. And honestly, I got a lot of HOW DO INFLUENCERS DO IT ALL? or HOW ARE YOU MANAGING WORKING AND MAMAHOOD?!

Okay so, what’s the secret to all these mama influencers who run a business, do their wifely duties and be a mama without missing a beat? Well, honestly… A nanny lol. But, no really, that’s usually the secret that they don’t want to tell you. And although I have nothing against a little help, I wanted to share how I stay productive (hint: it’s not a nanny). Scroll below to read how I manage motherhood while working full-time. How I Manage Motherhood While Working Full-time: Spilling ALL the Beans!: 1. Pay for services that save you time I know that I may get a little slack for this but if you are in a position to pay for services to save you time, then do it! What’s changed my life as a mama and a business owner has been grocery delivery and having a cleaner come and clean my entire home bi-weekly.

As my due date swiftly approaches I’ve been checking off all my final to-do’s on my list. At the top of my list has always been safety and how I will keep baby girl safe as a newborn.

Mirror | Shelf | Face Vase | Jug | Pampas Grass | Baskets | Floor Basket | Tank (code laurenevasheriff for 20% off) | Biker Shorts ($11!) My front hallway has been such a plain boring sight since I moved in a few months back. I was going back and fourth with ideas, from building a bench to just doing some peg hooks for some extra storage space. Thanks to Pinterest, my vision for my front hallway became a little more clearer. I opted for a circle mirror and simple shelf for a little oomph and storage. I knew I wanted to keep a boho vibe throughout my house, just like my nursery, and went for beech wood, pampas grass and straw to keep thins simple yet chic. Plus, everything pictured is under $100! Making this hallway reveal not only stylish but super affordable too. Now the only thing missing is some square ottomans or foot stools to keep under the shelf for a place to put on shoes! xo Lauren

Finally! The secret is out! We’re pregnant!! It’s been a long 12 weeks of hiding this little secret from Instagram and some friends and family, but we are so excited to share the news. I thought it would be fun to share our pregnancy story so far.
If you are constantly on the go it’s really hard to find downtime. You may have worked hard to get your perfect career that your life is consumed with your job first. But who’s to say that you can’t balance a busy career and busy personal life?

On February 14th, the hubby and I celebrate 5 years of marriage! We’ve been together for 12 years now but celebrating 5 years of marriage feels like a bigger milestone. My marriage has been the biggest blessing of my life and something that I cherish each and every day. With that being said, marriage has definitely had it’s challenges but it’s also grown me as a person in ways I couldn’t imagine if I wasn’t married.
