Ten classy books your little one needs.

It's never to early to start reading to your baby and these days there are a ton of adorable hardback books that not only are fun to read to your little one, but make great decor as well. I love to read and enjoy reading to my kids. Reading about some of my favorite icons, cities, and inspirational people makes it that much more fun! A few years back I bought a few classics for my girls such as "Pride & Prejudice" from Baby lit and recently I discovered the "little people big dreams" series.

Here is a round-up of my favorite classy books for little ones! 

All of these books can be find on

Have a great Monday! I don't know about you all but I'm finding myself in survival mode with less than two weeks before school starts.

Out with boring laundry

My main laundry basket has been dying a slow death lately.

Um. Yeah....I don't know how I let it get this bad! 

 So I picked up a new cute and sturdy laundry basket from Target the other day. 

The only problem is--something was missing. 

There that's better. Who says your laundry baskets have to be boring? 

I've been in a major "add trims and tassels to everything" sort of mood. Last year it was polka dots. You don't need any fancy sewing skills to add more spruced up objects in your life. Get yourself a hot glue gun, your embellishments of choice and go to town!

Happy Wednesday!

Sweet summer top

Soooo originally this top I made was supposed to be for Mariam, but it came out too big, so now it's Layla's. (ah the beauty of having 4 girls. ) I have a love/hate relationship with sewing clothes. One, I do things the hard way. I don't use patterns for any clothes I do for the girls. I simply eyeball the design I have in mind and go for it. I prefer making accessories because I like quick results. My patience is a work in progress. 

I do a lot of DIY projects and I wish I could more tutorials but it's too hard with the children. When I do things, I have to move quickly and stopping to photograph the whole process and then write the post takes for-ever! I promise I'll still continue to document some tutorials for you guys--I just can't do it for all my projects at this current stage in my life.

I also made a few hand towels for the kitchen. So easy. I bought some terry cloth at my local fabric store. Cut it to the size I wanted, serged the longest sides and then added a trim of my choice on both ends. A great simple way to add your own style to your kitchen or bathroom. 

Have a great weekend!

Because you know I'm all about them bows...

Hellooooooo blog readers! Did ya miss me? You guys I've had family back to back over here. The last set of in-laws isn't leaving till another week and a half, so things still aren't normal around here. Couple that with my business and not sleeping great thanks to miss baby Ava still, well....I'm one tired momma. That's the story of my life now.....being tired. 

What can you do though? Just have to keep pushing through and pray this baby sleeps sooner than later. At least I can slap on like 20 pounds of concealor to help hid the bags and wear something cute like this absolutely adorable gingham bow peplum top. I love it! It runs big, but it's super comfy, easy to put on and looks great dressed up or down.

You guys I love it so much I even stayed up late Monday night just to sew a matching bib for Ava so we could twin in Miami. I'm a little crazy like that. 

Cute no?

Have a great weekend!
