Fair Isle, Four Down

Fair Isle, Four Down

Sophistishe has gone Fair Isle! Come on over if you’re reading through the feed. I wanted to redesign for the holiday, but ran out of time, so I went with something more appropriate for the Winter season. Most of my designs are inspired by textiles, this time by a new sweater and leggings, both FairContinue Reading

Madware?

Madware?

Lately, I’ve been getting quite a few spam text messages on both of my phones. It’s so annoying, but I chalked it up to being “one of those things”… someone somehow gaining access to my numbers. Yanno, the usual. What didn’t occur to me in the midst of my app happy downloading, that one ofContinue Reading

Messy Moments With Baby: Protecting Their Delicate Skin

Messy Moments With Baby: Protecting Their Delicate Skin

It’s been over a month since the birth of Jaxon and we are pretty adjusted to having another baby in the house.

Dine Memories

Dine Memories

Dining out is something we do maybe two times a year; more if we have a gift card. It’s so much easier and obviously more affordable to dine at home, but when we have the opportunity to go out, it’s always a treat. It’s a great feeling enjoying a delicious meal that you didn’t haveContinue Reading

Stocking Stuffer For Mr. – Gillette Fusion ProGlide

Face it, men are so hard to shop for… at least my man is. I can never buy him anything that he actually wants. I mean once his favorite video game is purchased, there’s nothing else left. The man is hard to please, so I just forcefully buy things that he needs, but never buys.Continue Reading

On Managing Healthy Relationships

On Managing Healthy Relationships

I’m an introvert so naturally that means that I am a little challenged when it comes to managing relationships. It takes me a while to trust others. While I am cautious with my habitual reading and evaluating of people, I do have a great safe circle of friends and family. I also have relationships thatContinue Reading

Indulge Anytime

Indulge Anytime

Managing a home business, housework, and mothering is enough to send anyone off to a corner rocking. Even with the help of a loving and supportive husband, sometimes I can become a beast. Like now. I feel like I am swimming in work before the holiday and I am trying not to freak the heckContinue Reading

Each year, Jayden wears a pair of festive pajamas to bed on Christmas Eve, to wake on Christmas Day and open his presents. It’s a little way to add big excitement to our celebration.

BB cream, also referred to as beauty balm, is an all-in-one facial cosmetic product to replace serum, moisturizer, primer, foundation, and sunblock. Many cosmetic brands are offering their own BB cream product and Maybelline is one of them. I was ableContinue Reading

Gerber Jammies For Baby & Toddler

What’s a baby’s wardrobe without layette from Gerber? Our drawers are full of the brand. We were sent a package of various items from Gerber and they’ve been coming in handy. If you follow me on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook, you’ve seen Jaxon in at least one Gerber item almost every day after his birth. The mittens stayContinue Reading
