I love kombucha. I also enjoy having a drink or two a few nights a week with my husband or my friends. And this can right here? Well, it put all my loves together and has made my sippin’ dreams come true. Yes, it’s HARD kombucha. Much like hard soda or hard sparkling water, alcoholic kombucha is now a thing, and with Flying Embers’ four flavors coming in at 4.5 percent alcohol per 12-ounce can with zero sugar and live probiotics, it’s a thing I really, really love (in moderation, of course). There are beginning to be more and more…

New brands and new products are being launched all the time. Like, if ya’ll could see our inboxes, they are full of emails claiming best-this, most-revolutionary that. via GIPHY It’s hard to know sometimes what’s really new and exciting (and true), and what’s just hype. And if we feel that way, we imagine you might, too. via GIPHY Which is why we decided to put a few of the most interesting claims we’ve seen to the test. The FBG test! (And, yep, all these companies sent us gear to review and we’ve included some affiliate links in case you want…

Now that the twins are in daycare a few days a week, I’ve been pumping more. And I’ve got some opinions on which breast pump I think is best — both from a convenience and maximizing-your-milk standpoint. And, mamas, there are A LOT of breast pump choices out there. Which is awesome, because there’s a lot of ways to do motherhood — and a variety of ways to feed your baby. (Fed — period — is best!) But, it can also be a bit overwhelming. Especially as a new mom. Hopefully by sharing my experience with the three that I…

When you think of beauty, what comes to mind? And how does that compare to what you might’ve thought of, say, five or 10 years ago? Maybe it’s because I’m a couple months away from celebrating my 40th birthday, maybe it’s because of the way society has evolved, or maybe it’s because of what’s on trend now, but boy, has my perception changed. I’m far more interested in looking healthy than I am in looking perfect or polished, and when it comes to seeing beauty in others, well, I honestly see it everywhere. If you choose to look for it,…

Every time I clear out my closet, I get a little more intentional about what clothes I’m choosing to bring in. I’m pretty much always going to be drawn to certain colors, eye-catching patterns, and feel-good fabrics, but for those items to go from a theoretical purchase to earning a hanger in my home, they’ve also got to work well for my lifestyle. And when those items come from a company that shares a lot of the values I hold dear? Well, that definitely gets my attention. I remember talking to Jenn years ago about how great it was that…

Matcha has been having a moment now for, well, awhile now — and it’s well-deserved. Matcha green tea has scientifically-proven health benefits and is considered a superfood that can help reduce cholesterol, improve brain health, and even help prevent cancer. But considering how popular — and beneficial — matcha is, I’ve found that a lot of people don’t know a whole heck of a lot about it, so I was thrilled to get the infographic at the bottom of this post from Matcha Kari! It’s got the true scoop (pun intended … and that’ll make way more sense once you…

You know how the song goes, right? Here comes the sun (doo doo doo). Here comes the sun, and I say it’s all right … Because healthy dinner is MADE! Wait, that’s NOT how it goes? Well, that’s what we’ve been singing here because Sun Basket came into our lives recently and it’s changed how we cook — and how we eat — for the healthier, the tastier, and (maybe best of all) the more convenient! (Heads up: We’ve also become an affiliate — that’s how much we like it.) We’re going to share the deets on a few of the…

I just took a DNA test! Turns out … via GIPHY I’m 100 percent nowhere near as cool as Lizzo. Which I probably did not need a DNA test to tell me. (I also don’t dabble in anything musical, unless you count singing off key in the car because I definitely do plenty of that.) So, okay, I’m no Lizzo, but it won’t surprise you to know how much I embrace her self-love message. And you can’t love yourself if you don’t really know yourself, right? via GIPHY There are loads of ways to get to know yourself better. Digging…

I live a pretty darn casual life. I like to wear clothes that are comfortable and allow me to move freely. Since I work from home, I can generally wear exactly what I want. But that doesn’t mean I want to look — or feel — like a slob, nor does it mean I don’t care about clothes and fashion. I do! While fashion doesn’t rule my life, I do find joy in wearing beautiful colors, soft fabrics and pieces that help me feel like the version of myself I present to the world meshes with who I am on…

I’ve loved playing dress up with beautiful and interesting clothing all my life. As a child, I would try on most of my mother’s closet — and when it came time for dance recital costumes, I was just in heaven. I vividly remember shopping for prom dresses with my mom — and, in fact, I found one I loved so much that I bought it long before I’d actually decided to attend. I even worked in a bridal shop for a few years, and I absolutely loved getting to try on the new gowns when they arrived. The thrill of these…
