I’ve got two things on my mind lately. Sunshine (don’t we all?) and Studio.

Part One: STUDIO

I launched a Lifestyle Photography Studio a year ago, @thestudiofortysix, and its been such a fun project for me, and many of you! Lots of you local photographers and brands have photographed there, and I have loved having you. Its minimal, and white, and a perfect canvas for any brand or your personal photography, but lately i’ve been amping it up a bit with some really pretty new props for clients to use white in the studio. I have shopped around and found some super pretty pieces for really great prices, take a look!

Part Two: SUNSHINE

Its that time of wear where the beach is weighing heavily on my mind. I think we all are getting some spring fever. Ive been cleaning out closets, passing our too small shoes down to cousins and updating the kids spring shoe collection. These are some old classics we have always worn, and some new that Im getting into this spring (ahem, Bobux, I love you)

Ikea Hack Show Stoppers

We love a good hack. All three of us have been updating pieces in our homes our entire lives! I learned it from my mom, Calleen. She is the queen of seeing beauty in an old outdated piece of furniture and making it into something everyone is talking about.

Those days were before Ikea was up the road. The mecca for clean design, and low priced basic. Because of Ikea, the basic hack has come to the next level right? With a little creativity and a couple minutes, the simple peices they offer can become show stoppers!

Here are some of our very favorite Ikea hacks from around the web.

Traveling with Baby

By Emily in partnership with Ergo.

We’ve got Spring Break on the brain and fly miles to burn and so today is all about traveling with baby! Traveling with BabyI’ve already started using both the new Sophie La Giraffe 360 Carrier and their chic new Anywhere I Go Backpack (available exclusively at Babies R Us until March) but I keep thinking about a solo flight I took with Raleigh and how much easier my life would’ve have been with both. Here’s what I’ll be taking next time around! Traveling with Baby

Left to Right Top to Bottom:

First thing, if you’re on baby duty wear slip-on shoes. Something you can do absolutely hands-free. Thank Heavens for the mule trend! Mine are from here.Traveling with Baby

Binky Clips – Do you know you’ll drop your baby’s pacifier on average 30 times more in a crowded airport or flight than you will in your everyday life. Just kidding, but I swear it always feels that way. Blinky Clips are a must.

Books, Toys, Passports, wallets. The Ergo Backpack has so many options but I love the open pocket (behind the logo) for the items I need to pull out most often while in lines.

We have kiddo sized neck pillows for the big boys on road trips, but on a flight, its so great for baby too! It keeps them more secure through naps and turbulence and I swear Raleigh slept like a rock thanks to this pillow. If you have an extra seat for them it makes for the easiest transfer from arms to laying down.

Puffs, crackers, Mum Mums, yogurt dots. Pouches, bottles, sippies. WHATEVER it needs to be, have plenty. Keeping their mouths busy is great for changes in altitude and ear pressure. If they’re not old enough for gum, make sure snacks are a plenty. Fruit Leather is an absolute MESS but it will buy you 30+ minutes of peace.Traveling with Baby

I love Peppermint essential oil for flights for me and the kids. So great if they get air sick. Mustela makes this No Rinse Cleansing Wash and I love it when I can’t get them to a bath but they need a freshening up. After a sweaty flight, get them smelling sweet again!

Extra clothing, diapers, bibs. June and January makes these thick burp clothsTraveling With Baby for a myriad of uses. I love this silicon bib, so easy to clean off in a hurry. Raleigh is on bottles so extra formula in bags or tupperware and then I always bring a refillable water bottle
. I prefer
my Nalgene because I can unscrew and screw the lid onto my back pack strap so its ea
sy to locate. Fill it up after TSA and then you’re ready for whatever bottles you’ll need. I love this backpack because it has two insulated pockets on either side. Whatever you need kept warm, there is plenty of space! Also, I typically bring extra ziplock or grocery bags in case of spills, wet clothing etc, but these pockets are big enough to hold any of that! Waterproof, too so you won’t get the rest of your belongings wet.

Another nice hack is the changing pad thicker than others I’ve tried, so I lay it down on my extra seat for naps. Keeps them off the germy areas, and gives a little extra padding. Traveling with Baby

There are a million things more you could bring and have a super comfortable flight. I’ve found the best tip is to keep your cool. Even the most prepared mama in the world still might end up with a screaming baby. But, a deep breath and a calm energy can’t hurt. My kids always feed off my energy too, so if I start to panic it seems like everyone joins in!
