11 Things Every Mom Needs in Her Spring Wardrobe This Year

After finally coming out of hibernation this winter, my twin boys and I made a mid-week, mid-day trip to Target, and I was shocked at what I saw.

In the store, most of the women there were probably SAHMs (I might be judging, but that was my guess) – but that’s not what shocked me.  When I looked around, I saw a sea of women zipping around the store in leggings, running shoes, and zip-up athletic jackets or hoodies. Baseball caps and sunglasses were optional but prevalent.

easter nails

Easter is around the corner and so is Spring. This is a time for those who dare to go bold and experiment with seasonal trends to take out their softer and pastel nail polish colors and try to match their mood to their nails.

Personally, I love experimenting with colors and adorning my fingernails and toe nails with lively hues. They do indeed lift my spirits while showing off a fun side of my personality.

Top Athleisure Brands to Shop Other than Lululemon {Gift Guide}

This Year, athleisure and loungewear will be big but there are other options to Lululemon

It’s official. With rising cases of the novel coronavirus, a lot of us will not be going anywhere this Winter to stay safe. In fact, everyone may be holed up at home.

The new normal for the season

As a consequence of the ongoing pandemic, a lot of restaurants, entertainment and other activities have been canceled, postponed or suspended. This shift will leave little opportunity for people to dress up. Alternatively, this opens up a market for the leisure wear industry.

Therefore, people will be trading in their club wear for sweats. If you’re considering getting clothing for a significant other, sister, teacher, nanny or sitter, friend or any other woman on your holiday shopping list this year, I’ve got the run down on the top brands in this sector of the fashion industry.

But there are other options. Here are 9
