My son is in LOVE with legos. He is always asking me to bring along his little mini table. It’s a great way to pass the time for him when we are waiting for doctors visits, a restaurant, or even just using his imagination when I am trying to get his sister to sleep.
This is such a simple DIY project you only need three things.
A case( I love using Altoids case because its a perfect size for this project) Legos and a hot glue gun
First place hot glue around the edges of the lego flat piece. I used two pieces so that it would cover the top of the Altoids Case.
Once that glue is around the edges then you can go ahead and place the lego piece on the top of the Altoids container and press down so it adheres to the top.
Once the top has adhered you can then fill the tin container with lego pieces of your liking. I like to put some lego people in there too. This allows for more creativity.
This is a perfect size to fit in a purse or diaper bag, perfect when you are on the go.
I have nursed collectively for 3 1/2 years. August is breastfeeding awareness month an I wanted to do something to celebrate the milestones I have achieved in nursing. I have been wanting to do a milk bath photo shoot F-O-R-E-V-E-R. I decided I was going to do one once I hit the 1 year milestone of nursing my youngest.
My son was so excited to help me set up the photo shoot
He was so excited to help me set the flowers in place and pour the milk into the tub. Now for this shoot I filled the tub up to my liking and used 1 1/2 gallons of whole milk so I could get the color I desired. You could add more milk so that it would look more white or you could use less to get an opaque look. It depends on what you are going for.
I also used greenery to get a little texture into the shots but they ended up sinking so in the future I would probably use plastic greenery and spray them with scotch guard so they don’t sink. Using real flowers you are guaranteed that they will float. If you want to use plastic make sure to use scotch guard. Also a little tip. The mums(big yellow flowers) look amazing but when the kids get a hold of them and shred them, its a BEAST to clean lol.
I don’t have any natural light in my bathroom so I used three LED lights and a diffuser to simulate daytime. One pointed up at the ceiling, second one behind the diffuser and the third was behind me in the shower.
All in all I am so happy with the results I got from my photo shoot. I want to thank my husband for hearing my vision and executing it.
These last two photos mean so much to me. I may not be a size 4 but that belly homed FOUR babies and brought two earthside. I was blessed and able to nourish those two babies and watch them grow(still doing it with my daughter)
I hope these inspire you to do a milkbath shoot of your own, get one done(You could even hire Razmus Photography to do so) or at the very least take more pics with your kids. they are only young once so capture these fleeting moments one picture at a time.
This past weekend I had some friends visiting from out of state and of course when they wanted to have a girls night I JUMPED at the chance. A night out with my girls…YES PLEASE.
I posted my look on my IG page and FB and had a few people ask for a tutorial on how to do the look. I had a blast creating this bold blue smokey eye and red lip. It is the perfect look for a glam night out on the town with your girls or even a party with your loved ones. I hope you enjoy
This year has been all about the protective styles for me. I have put my hair in a protective style more this year than I have in the past 4 years as a natural. It really has giving me the break I needed to do there things and I LOVE just waking up and not having to worry about my hair. Of course from time to time I would let my hair come out to play. Here are a few of my favorite hair styles
