I love hearing what my friends are in to right now and how it helps their everyday, makes them happy or is something cool they just found. So I thought you guys might like to see what things have been on my radar this month!
1. Velvet Lips no. 17
Let me tell you, there's nothing like a pandemic full of mask mandates to make you discover your love for lipstick. Ironic. haha. But I'm pretty picky with my lipstick - in that it has to last. I kiss my babies a LOT and don't want to have to wipe pink and red smudges off of their face constantly. (Danny appreciates this too lol) so I like to make sure it's more of a stain that doesn't come off super easily. I love this one on Amazon because it lasts, but is also pretty easy to wash off so I'm not stuck with patchy, stained lips in the morning. Plus it feel really soft too!
I've been obsessed with Chatbooks since the day they launched. I have 100+ books ordered and printed with more in my queue. (I have them set to print 3 a month.) I use Chatbooks to print all of our phone pictures and I have Danny on our account as well so that I can have him add his pictures too. We just started doing the print three a month thing and it has been so great! I keep the newest three out on the coffee table so the boys can flip through them. When our new ones for the month come I move the ones from the table to the shelf with the rest of the books. You can use this referral code to get $10 off your first order: F4MA2P3P
3. Built Bar
Welcome to postpartum life over here. I've been counting my macros since 3 weeks pp and working out since 6 weeks pp. Built Bars are my favorite "snacky" thing to help me reach my protein intake goal. Plus they taste like candy bars (or as close to a candy bar as you can get while still being "healthy")

I love these things. This is the first swaddle that my babies actually like and will stay in. Plus it's soft and cool and Remy loves to hold it. It also helps that it's made by one of my friends and everything in her shop is the best!
5. Amazon bats
I decided last year that my "Halloween style" was, "creepy, classy" and I love these bats for it! I have them on my front porch. The boys loved helping hang them up and they look so good without much effort - which is a win during busy season for me!
6. Golden kiwi
I found them at Costco and decided to try them and now I bring them home everytime I go shopping there! They are so sweet and so good! Even when they aren't fully ripe they still taste sweet. They've been another go to for healthy snacks of mine.
7. Breverite camera bag
I was 100% convinced from a targeted add, but I love this bag! It has the separate compartments like my other bag had, but this one is much more user friendly with more pockets! Not to mention all the sweet little details they added to make it awesome. I use the top half as a diaper bag and the bottom half houses my gear since I take my big camera with me everywhere!
8. Manfrotto Tripod
I'm loving this even more after taking my own extended family's pictures yesterday. It's a beast, but I feel totally secure with my camera on it. The mounted level is a nice touch. Plus mine has the option to make the arm parallel to the ground - so helpful for layflats and saving my back!
9. Dr. Pepper Zero
Yet another thing to help with me counting my macros. Ha. I bet you can't tell what's been on my mind this month! It tastes the closest to regular Dr. Pepper and is great for those days where I need the carbonation and caffeine when I haven't budgeted my carbs accordingly.
10. Stick of Bubbles
And the last one on my list is a little bubble wand that is smaller than a pencil. I've had it in my bag forever, but this past month it has made it's debut at nearly every shoot (including my own) that has a toddler. It's been the real MVP and totally earned it's storage space in my bag.
And that's it, those are the ten things I'm loving this month! If you like this sort of thing, let me know and I'll do another post later on.
