Hi there!

Hey lovelies, welcome to SDB! I'm Natasha. I am a walking, talking mombie fueled by coffee. I am obsessed with shoes, all things glittery and/or sparkly, and I have an owl obsession. We talk about everything from motherhood, lifestyle, and all things inbetween. I am a mom of three kids and we reside in the Pacific Northwest. Thanks for tagging along! Now lets sit back and sip on a cup of coffee in the AM or wine in the PM and lets relax.

Mom & Daughter Spring Kidbox Review

All thoughts and opinions are my own based off my experience with KidBox and the items. 

My daughter is a little fashionista. The girl loves clothes. Every morning we go to her closet together and I ask her what she'd like to wear today. I let her pick out her top and bottoms. Aurora loves dresses and leggings and the girl is obsessed with shoes (a habit she inherited from me)! 

With the boys in school she doesn't get new clothes as often as they do. I happened to be on Facebook one day and stumbled upon an ad for a company called Kidbox. I had never heard of them before but was fascinated by the idea. Intrigued, I started to investigate. Let's just say after about five minutes I was instantly hooked. 

I created a profile for Aurora. She's still a tiny little thing but I like to get her clothes a size bigger than she is so that she can wear them longer. Normally she wears a 3T but I asked for items in a 4T for her. The cool thing about Kidbox is that you can even specify what colors and styles to avoid. For her spring box I asked for the Classic Preppy style and was very pleased with all the items that she received inside. They even send a fun surprise to open and keep. My daughter loves unboxing her surprise and this time she got three bracelets/hair band holders.

This is our third box from Kidbox and I must say, I love all the clothes that get picked out by her stylist Hillary. She does an amazing job capturing the essence of Aurora’s style. The items are high quality, very durable, and fit her girly but active lifestyle. I love that all 7 pieces are interchangeable with each other. With every box purchased, Kidbox donates an outfit to a child in need and I love that we get to help a child in care with every purchase that we make from KidBox.

Mommy Style: All Black Everything & a Pop of Green

Happy Easter! Spring is officially here, which makes me super excited and eager for renewal and all things bright and cheery. The weather has been interesting and trying to find a place to do a photo shoot has been a struggle with the constant drizzle we get here in the Portland Metro area. 

A couple of weeks ago we managed to catch a break with the weather, although it was extra gray outside that day. We ventured to downtown Troutedale where we snapped a couple of photos before it started to rain again. 

The jacket I am wearing was a Ross find. It was under $20 and I absolutely love it. Right now I am in-between sizes due to working out and it is an XL. The skinny jeans and green heels are from Target. Everyone keeps asking me about them. They are old. I bought them when my son Talan was born (over 5 years ago!) but never got the chance to wear them. They have been tucked away in my closet until I remembered I had them. The top is a random Wal-Mart find. I bought it around Christmas time and the animal print bag was a gift from my MIL.

And yes... I cut my hair. It was banging out of control and I cut off 7 inches. I am loving the new cut. My hair looks so much healthier and I actually wear it down practically everyday.
