Happy New Year! I am not usually the resolution type. This year I have chosen a word of the year to focus on (it's "nourish" and you can read more about that here), and I'm also working on a daily moment to meditate on happiness (posting as zebrabelly on instagram under the tag #findinghappy2017 if [...]
Okay, I know I said I wasn't going to get any more political than my last post. But then this week happened. Wow. I am exhausted. Are you? Personally, I am quite liberal. I feel like SOAM is a radical and subversive idea and I think that things which are radical and subversive are, also [...]
Some elections I do get more political, but this time around I'm just going to post this. Mamas, women died for your right to vote. Get out there and make them proud. Together we can change the world!

Happy Mother's Day to those mothers who have lost their babies or who have had trouble conceiving. Happy Mother's Day to all the adoptive and foster mothers. [...]
FINALLY. I'm so sorry it's taken me so long! But today I pulled the two winners of the mailing list giveaway that ended earlier this month. Lauren won a cute newborn Gryffindor diaper cover set from By The Moonlight Creations, and Kim won the custom beaded pendant. I'll be emailing you both very soon! There [...]
I have just become an influencer over at Mogul (onmogul.com) which is an up and coming new website for women worldwide. I'm super excited about this opportunity because I love Mogul's mission and the content I am seeing there so far seems to be really great quality. I love this short piece by Kelly Osbourne, [...]
I was planning to close the giveaway this week, but I've decided to extend it through the weekend. I'll close it on Monday April 4 instead. It's not too late to join our mailing list and enter to win! Two winners will be chosen, gifts shown below.
