One of the most-asked questions I field via Instagram is how I dress my children so nicely in the face of all of the laundering, stain removal, and ironing it must entail

The truth is that my children also wear a lot of easy-to-care-for cotton separates like peter pan collar dresses from Busy Bees and Luigi for Emory and jeans with long-sleeved polos and printed turtlenecks for Hill, but I do spend a lot of time tending to their dressier clothes. Here’s what works well for us: For stains, I swear by Palmolive dish soap diluted by hot water, applied directly to the area, and then immediately laundered with The Laundress Baby detergent, and this stiff brush is helpful in the process. For lighter staining/marking/spillage issues, Dreft spray works well. In general,...

We hear all the time about recycling plastic bottles and aluminum cans, but what about some of the lesser mentioned items? In response to reader queries, we’ve assembled a list of some odd items that may have you saying, “Wow, you can recycle that?”

Blue Jeans You know the regular routine. When you no longer need, like, or fit into your jeans, you can always donate them to a charitable resale organization like Goodwill or The Salvation Army. You’ve heard it a million times, so let’s not make it a million-and-one. We’re actually talking about physically recycling your jeans. After all, some clothes are just too far worn or damaged to head to a resale shop and deserve a proper [recycling] burial.

Can y’all believe Nate is almost 4 months old? It seems like it was just yesterday that we brought him home, but at the same time it also feels like he’s always been a part of our live

s. Does that even make sense? LOL. You all got a sneak peek ofNate’s nursery back in August when I shared our baby registry, but it wasn’t until a few weeks later that the room fully came together. It’s a good thing Nate didn’t arrive early because I waited until the last minute!

Moving to the dormitory of your dream college or traveling to your favorite city should be fun

But moving to a hostel or traveling comes with its caveats. If you don’t go well prepared, then it is very likely that you may come across minor inconveniences that can eventually end up ruining the fun you were set out for. One of the most common problems people face during an adventurous trip is having no proper room to put their clothes in. Now, of course, you could leave your clothes in the suitcase and call it a day. However, this can prove counterproductive and will make it impossible to access all of your clothes. You will probably have...

{home} Closet Room Update

I had my first experience with a closet room when I lived in a small beach cottage with my friend. She knew I didn't particularly want to move out of my parents house so she offered me the small extra room in the house as a closet - SOLD! You can see that messy room here. Next I moved in with 2 of my cousins and had the smallest room in the house. It turned into a closet with a bed in it. That room was featured in this post. When Christian and I were house hunting we wanted a...
