Tips For The Working Mom

May 18, 2018

I never set out to be a “working mom” in fact, my goal was to stay at home always with my babies but things change and opportunities arose that I couldn’t pass up. After 10 months home with my little one, I found myself working with The Refined Agency on a part-time basis. It was an opportunity to grow in my career field at a comfortable pace and hit some personal goals. As you may know, Alex & Lin have recently opened a gorgeous cafe in town, Cafe Lola! With new businesses comes new responsibilities on the team and I quickly moved to a more full-time role. Half the time I work from home and the other half I’m in the office, which works really well for our family right now. I’ve had to learn how to thrive in this new environment and after almost one year working and being a mom, I’ve got a few tips and tricks to get things done! Continue Reading

The Baby Bump: 5 Things Every Mama Should Have During Her First Trimester  

February 20, 2018

Hi everyone! Now that I’m well in to my second trimester, I thought I would share some of the things that helped me sooo much during my first trimester! Some things I dealt with: I was terrified every day of something happening, I was sooo bloated, I had allll day nausea (not just in the mornings) and a ton of food aversions!
