We’re having such a good weekend already. Spent time with family, spent time outside, spent time reflecting on the sacrifice made on the cross, and just spent time together. Happy Easter Weekend ✝️❤️ Also, I found some pretty perfect leggings so I thought I’d share. They’re thick, soft, supportive, have a thick waist band that stays in place, and are super comfy. They’re the “wear everywhere” by Matty M, I’ll link them on my The best part? They’re only $22!

Lastly, shoutout to @ergobaby for having a good carrier for toddlers. I carried this big baby all around our walk and it was comfy + E loved it.

  • Friday Introductions!🌿
Today I’m starting a new series where I introduce you to a new “clean” brand. Today I’m sharing @cindyssuds. This is a local MI brand which makes me love it even more. But these products you guys are SO good.
+ The oatmeal bath has been amazing for both Z and E, we just put a capful into the bath and they love the lavender buds floating around.
+ The healing salve is a multipurpose balm that can be used for endless things dry skin, bug bites, burns, cradle cap, and cuts/scrapes. Every mama needs one of these in their diaper bags.
+ The soap and body butter are unscented and perfect for sensitive baby skin (or sensitive adult skin!).
What’s your favorite clean beauty/skincare brand? I love supporting local brands so look for more coming soon!
You can shop for these at and check out her page @cindyssuds
