Why do Mondays always roll around so much faster than Fridays!? Since there seems to be no stopping this whole Monday thing, I’ve decided to take on the whole if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em type mindset. It’s way better sailing into Monday thinking of it as a fresh start with tons of opportunity as opposed to just the end of your weekend. So, in the spirit of embracing Mondays, here are a few of my favorite links that I turn to when I need a little inspiration; anything from recipes and design to community and laughs. Hope you enjoy! http://tiffanithiessen.com/ I LOVE Tiffani Thiessan. I’ve been a big fan ever since her Kelly Kapowski days on Saved By The Bell and now I’m an even bigger fan. I’m totally hooked on her new show, Dinner at Tiffanis! Her blog offers recipes, design ideas, ways to entertain and snapshots of her life. http://www.thehonesttoddler.com/?m=1 I’m obsessed with The Honest Toddler anything! I follow her on every facet of social media. Her hilarious take on parenthood keeps me going throughout the day. http://www.scarymommy.com/about-scary-mommy/ Scary Mommy is a blog written by a slew of super funny and talented mothers. Their spot on take on motherhood makes me feel a little less crazy 😜 http://cupcakesandcashmere.com/ When I have a little free time I like reading this blog so I feel like I’m somewhat caught up on the latest fashion and trends. Recently, I was in desperate need for new makeup so I looked […]

I mean, if you have a body and you own a swimsuit, you are, by default, swimsuit ready. But this is the bull that women constantly have to listen to, making us feel like we’re not swimsuit ready. Or, at least, not swimsuit ready enough. For whom? I don’t know. I guess for everyone? I never got the memo.
Remember that time Heidi Klum gave birth backstage at a Victoria’s Secret show and threw on a thong to strut down the runway literally seven seconds later looking more fit than ever? Okay, that didn’t happen. It was something a time difference of six weeks or something. But my memory recalls the previous version because for years, I was positive that women like this only exist to make me feel like a sack of rotten bananas. It’s nothing personal against Heidi – she’s a beautiful woman blessed with the genes of a goddess. And there are plenty of other women just as evil (I’m looking at you, Blake.) But every once in a while, someone in the limelight is brave enough to remind us that no, that kind of post-maternity bounce back is NOT normal. Dancing with the Stars’ Petra Murgatroyd became one of them when she posted what her body looks like eight days after giving birth to her. Spoiler alert: It’s not the body you see on DWTS.
