Finding Your Formula for Happiness

As I journey through this thing called motherhood, I'm learning that not everyone's journey is the same. Everyone has different things that work for them because not only is every child different, but everyone's circumstance is different. You can't judge someone else's journey just because it isn't in tune with how you would parent.

I breastfed both of my children. I did it for financial reasons, but there were so many other benefits. At different times, I did try to give my daughter formula. But she wouldn't take it. She had issues with her latch, I had issues with supply, and she had colic. With the endless hours of crying because of baby's discomfort, I was willing to try anything.

Save Money on Gifts with Groupon Goods

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are my own.

I love saving money and hate paying retail. I have all my handy frugal apps right on my smart phone, so I never miss a deal. I know I have already mentioned how much I love the Groupon app. Groupon is a deal-of-the-day recommendation service saving you 40% to 60% off retail if you purchase that product or service.

Recently my husband and I have been obsessed with the Groupon Goods! We have bought so many things for our new house as well some pretty awesome birthday and Christmas presents.

My daughter was born just a few weeks before Christmas, so making sure she has a great birthday while not spending a lot is essential. Groupon lets me save on services like bouncy castles and goods which include electronics, jewelry, clothes, and more.

Some of my favorite gift ideas right now on Groupon include:

Unboxing the August DegustaBox

I received complimentary products to provide this post. This post contains affiliate links. All opinions are my own.

I love subscription boxes. I love discovering new products to try and it is a great way to do just that while not breaking the bank. I was contacted about a new subscription box called Degustabox. Basically for only $19.99 ($9.99 with code if you keep scrolling), you get a box FILLED with goodies. You can try so many different flavors and many of these products are new to the market. So definitely a great way to try before you buy!

So what was in my box?

Natural Ways to Reduce Heat Rash #ButtPasteMom

This post is brought to you by Boudreaux’s Butt Paste and The Motherhood. All opinions are my own. #ButtPasteMom

My son gets heat rash. He always has, even before his little body was able to sweat properly. This irritates his eczema. He was born in the Spring, so all summer long his sweet baby skin would get heat rash, especially in the crevices of his chubby legs.

I would try to keep him as dry as possible to avoid heat rash, but that wasn't always realistic. We live in the pool and lake all summer long with even a trip to the beach. Plus he always been on the sweatier side.

Passing On the Music of The Beatles with Beat Bugs + Netflix Giveaway #StreamTeam

I am a member of the Netflix Stream Team and receive complimentary products as such. All opinions are my own.

I am a HUGE fan of The Beatles. My dad loved their music and raised me on it. Some of you may know, my dad passed away when I was pregnant with my daughter, so listening to The Beatles, brings back all those wonderful memories of my dad. And now I am so excited that Netflix has a new original series that features songs from The Beatles so I can introduce my children to their music.
We have been watching Beat Bugs since it first started streaming earlier this month. The Beat Bugs are five charming, funny and adventurous best friends who have a knack for getting themselves into mischief and mayhem. The animated show features some of the most well-known Beatles songs woven into the narrative of each episode, with Eddie Vedder, P!nk, James Bay, Sia, and more recording their rendition of an iconic song.

Check out the official trailer below:
