The Newest Brunch Spot in Raleigh

Happy + Hale in North Hills is the newest brunch spot in Raleigh featuring healthy options! Happy + Hale started out delivering food on a tricycle, and now they have 4 different locations which is really exciting. I’ve been to their location in downtown Raleigh, but this spot in North Hills is much bigger and also has a brunch menu with cocktails which you definitely can’t pass up!

I visited with Meghan and Glory to check out this new location, and it’s absolutely gorgeous. I love how bright and airy it is with big windows, and tons of outdoor seating. When it came to ordering food, we decided to get a bunch of different things to share including their avocado toast, açaî bowl, and endless summer salad (featuring tomatoes from a local farmer!). For their drinks we tried an even larger variety including their iced matcha latte, golden milk latte, beet root latte, frozen avocado margarita, and aperol spritz. My favorites were the açaî bowl and aperol spritz hands down! I’ll definitely be going back soon to try out some of the other items on their menu including their smoothies and juices!

Sunflower Field

As soon as I heard about the sunflower field in downtown Raleigh, I made plans to visit with Meghan and Glory! These two are always up for checking out fun places in the Triangle, so we ventured to the sunflower field at Dorthea Dix. It’s such a gorgeous little spot in the middle of the hustle and bustle, and you really forget that you’re in the middle of the city. I wore this floral dress that I picked up from Amazon, and I love how lightweight it is with the buttons all the way up the front. It’s perfect with these statement earrings from Target that I wore over the weekend to my sister’s bachelorette party too. If you’re in Raleigh, you definitely have to make a trip to the sunflower field!

Amazon Prime Day

Amazon Prime is currently the MVP in our household right now. It’s hard to find time to run errands these days, so I usually just order it on Amazon Prime which makes life so much easier! Forget about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, today starts the beginning of Amazon Prime Day and it actually runs through tomorrow as well. Here are some of my picks when it comes to motherhood and fashion that you can find some great deals on today. My favorite deal though is the sale on the HALO Bassinest which is $199.99 regularly $249.99 (Update: the deal sold out quickly, so the same deal is being offered at Buy Buy Baby here). I last blogged about it here and I highly recommend it if you’re expecting or a new Mom! Here are my other picks:

Freshen Up Your Look for Summer for the Whole Family

Thank you BJ’s Wholesale Club for sponsoring this post.

Summer is usually the time of year that I start to get a little bored with the items that I have in my closet. It’s so hot and humid that I feel like I’m wearing the same dresses over and over again. This makes it the perfect time to freshen up my wardrobe, and my family’s wardrobe too! I decided that Robert, Charlotte, and I were all in need of some new clothes which would be perfect for taking some new family photos. The last time that we took family photos was when Charlotte was 2 weeks old, so we were a little overdue.

One of the places that I stopped into recently for new clothes is BJ’s Wholesale Club and I was really impressed with their selection of clothing for women, men, and also children! I love that BJ’s Wholesale Club is a one-stop shop for the latest trends for all 3 of us, which saves me a lot of time by shopping there. I was also able to dress the whole family without breaking the bank which is really important to me, and I love their selection of ready-to-wear styles that also include name brands that we already love. In addition to the brands that we love, they also have an expanded apparel selection, including BJ’s exclusive Berkley Jensen line of apparel designed for superior quality and comfort at a really great value.

When it comes to an outfit for myself, wearing a top and shorts in the summer is definitely ideal with having an infant. I picked up this lightweight Izod top with fun bell sleeves which I’m in love with. It really is the perfect top for summer! I’ve also been on the hunt for a new pair of denim shorts, but it can be challenging to find a pair that’s the right fit. I found this pair at BJ’s as well and they have a little stretch which is definitely great when you’re postpartum.

For Robert, he loves wearing shorts and a polo shirt in the summer but he was in need of replacements. I picked out this blue polo shirt, and it’s such great quality and color on him. I paired it with these navy twill shorts which are really lightweight which definitely makes them perfect for summer as well!

For Charlotte, they have an expanded selection of kids’ sizes which is definitely amazing for her. They have a new selection of separates for school-aged kids with sizes ranging from 7-14 for girls which will be great when that time comes. For now, I love their selection of baby clothes for her. BJ’s carries some of our favorite brands, and I fell in love with this cute polka dot top with striped pants. It’s such a cute outfit, and I love the bright colors and print mixing for her for summer.

You can click here to join BJ’s today and also earn a $25 gift card. Families can save $500 year which is definitely mind blowing. They offer the best value, you can save 25% off grocery store prices which is great when you have a family, and they are the only warehouse club to accept manufacturer’s coupons.
