Mr. Monday Mayhem + V day Inspo

Mr. Monday Mayhem. No really. I know it’s almost Wednesday but we have finally seen the light. Monday was a hard one. To be honest the last few days have been. When he is sick, the misbehaving starts. Then the back talk and then its a wrap. Oh boy. I honestly didn’t know what having a threenager meant. Right when he was turning one he started having small tantrums. Two wasn’t so bad. Then came three. My husband and I saw the random tantrums but recently it has gotten bad. Having to deal with a little one that has ADHD on the other hand is another thing. The tantrums get worse. How is it, when he gets sick I feel like I have an infant at times. The last few days I even had an itch to crack that bottle of wine that is in the fridge. I am not that type lol. It was just something I definitely needed. Things are finally getting back to normal. Thank goodness.

If you have noticed some new things have happened to the blog since the last time you may have visited. A new sleek style I could finally set the brand on. I’ll be adding a new logo soon, don’t worry. My main focus has stayed the same. A budget style shop based blog during motherhood. Just, a more personal approach and on a more stylish level. It was getting to be too much for me. I was trying to compare myself to others and thinking about the $$. Here you will see my struggles and of course lifestyle trends for less. A mom blog with a hint of the best ways to live for less on a budget but more practical, without thinking how to sacrifice your style.

To get Valentine’s Day off to a great start I linked some great styled tops under $25.

    I feel you on the threenager! Two was so easy in comparison! My daughter is about to be 4 now and she just has this little attitude at times. They want to push boundaries at this age for sure.

    I’m right there with you on the wine for the tantrums but my kid is only 17 months so I can’t imagine how awful the three year old tantrums will be! Good luck, mama. It’s only a season.

    • Jalisa
      January 28, 2017 / 1:42 PM

      Lol. My son started with the small tantrums around 20 months old. He was perfect at two so I thought three wasn’t going to be so bad lol. Boy I was wrong. Lol.

    Nice to see you here, hun! I’ve always loved the idea of your brand. I love that you share fashionable tips and deals that are very affordable and budget friendly. It always gets so stressful when you compare yourself with others–I fall on that sometimes, too! But stay true to you and the rest will align itself. 🙂
