How many moms have felt judged or degraded for a parenting choice? Let's work together to stop the mom shaming. mom-shaming. #momshaming #uniteinmotherhood

The internet has made so many things in our lives easier. We have the ability to communicate and find information in an instant. We can share our lives with not only our loved ones, but with other people (other moms!) that we have something in common with anywhere in the world. Unfortunately, right along with the great resources, we also have the ability to very easily be unkind to people. The topic of mom shaming is one that many people have very strong feelings about. It’s something that we talk about often. It’s something that we are quick to jump on someone for. It’s something that we do all the time. I think we can all agree that it is something that needs to stop. How do we work together to stop mom shaming?  read more

prAna Review & Promo Code: Activewear for Active Moms

Check my honest prAna review and get an exclusive discount code. Great activewear for busy moms! Comfortable, versatile, and sustainable fashion. #mamainprana #momfashion #leggings

Before I became a mom, the term “active wear” sounded like the kind of clothing I would wear to work out. Now that I have a toddler, I would say that we are active all day everyday – playing, cooking, putting all of the pots back in the cabinet, cleaning, running errands, even watching TV now requires chasing after a rambunctious little one. Anything that I wear needs to be comfortable to move around in. At the same time, I don’t want to be sitting around it baggy sweats all the time. I was super excited to be able to team up with Moms Meet to try out prAna’s versatile line of activewear. Check out this prAna review to see what I loved about my pieces and why they are great activewear for active moms. Also, get my exclusive prAna promo code. read more

Hello to all of Lexie’s followers and a big thank you to Lexie for having me as a guest blogger! My name is Lindsey and I blog over at www.delicatelybalancinglife.com. I’ve been a wife for 17+ years, but a mom for just six short months! I spent my 20’s and most of my 30’s focused on my career as a law firm administrator, so when my husband and I decided to FINALLY turn our party of two into a family of three, I knew one thing for sure: I wasn’t going to let all I had worked so hard to build fall by the wayside in the name of motherhood. I had built a reputation as a hard working go-getter and there was no way that I was going to be seen as anything less than that just because I was a mom!
