6 min read

Friday morning cuddles selfie. Just kidding, there was no cuddling. June is too hectic for that now. 😆 What a ragamuffin. (Our PJ’s are linked here!) 

HIII! It’s Friday once again! This week was a whirlwind but a genuinely superior whirlwind! How was yours?

I’m even now so thrilled from the Elisamama gown reveal and buzzing from all your superb form words and phrases! My brain is just far too scattered to complete any other posts aside from a random word-vomit “10 things”–which we have not finished in awhile, anyway! 😆 So right here we go. The very first 10 points that appear to intellect! 

10 random things… 

Elisamama launch! As outlined above–still on a superior from submitting the major expose yesterday! I have under no circumstances launched dresses before so I actually have NO plan what to anticipate. I imply, I enjoy our layouts so significantly, and we created them with YOU all in intellect specifically–but as takes place when placing myself out there in any new capacity–admittedly there has surely been a very little voice within my head at periods wondering, “Will persons obtain them!? Will I be capable to pull my bodyweight as a husband or wife for Fisayo!?” so seeing the incredibly optimistic and overwhelming reaction has just been so so superb. Like simultaneously giddy and type of a sigh of relief? THANK YOU. ♥️ I seriously hope you really like the dresses as significantly as we do! This has been these a entertaining experience and we’re previously speaking a second partnership! 🙌🏼

More remarkable task partnerships on the horizon: Exciting strides in TWO other collaboration projects have been going on this 7 days. One particular is with Whitney–it’s not a Paris journey but…somewhere else that is equally wonderful! Make absolutely sure to get on her e-mail record so you do not pass up the aspects when we send them out!

The other is with a model I’ve been working with for a though now, a person I’m passionate about and a manufacturer YOU all adore. I’m not guaranteed if I’m allowed to say who it is nevertheless so I’m going to ensure right now and spill the beans as soon as doable. But we’re seeking at an extras start for fall! Eeeek! 

It is Last but not least not freezing in Chicago! I say this as it is going to be like 37 degrees this weekend. 😂 But despite the wet weather, I’m just so, so grateful I haven’t experienced to wear a puffer coat since coming home from Florida. It is been so great to be TRENCH COAT weather conditions! (Are you even a midwesterner if you are not continually talking about the climate?) 

I walked past daycare today on the way to operate errands and peered in the window and who did I find but June sitting down on the head teacher’s lap! 😂 Minor teacher’s pet! It is so sweet to see how a great deal she loves them and how much they adore her. I get a great deal of messages from audience asking how I felt about daycare and if it was the ideal childcare selection for us, and it unquestionably was. There is nothing much better than looking at them light-weight up when they see just about every other at fall-off! Not to mention, acquiring my day (and property) to myself Monday through Friday has been essential for my mental wellbeing and obtaining some semblance of balance juggling get the job done, daily life, time for myself, motherhood, and so on. (As if that exists, but, you know.) 

I’m likely to early happy hour right now with my buddy Sam, June, and her tiny boy! We made impromptu options this morning and I am SO enthusiastic! Neal is heading out tonight to look at March Madness online games with his pals. Thrilled that we are both of those acquiring mate time in! 

And on that note…we have a day night time on Saturday! We last but not least obtained a Authentic babysitter! (My remarkable sister in regulation typically watches June, but we’ve needed to discover a local sitter we are not similar to for a although now and I’m psyched we eventually did! I really employed the Bambino app! (If you indicator up and e-book via that url we’ll each get $10!) Brighton was the 1 who turned me on to it and it was genuinely beneficial! 

An additional “work” related win: I employed a crew to help me make graphics! This has been on my checklist for SO long. I have always admired the quite graphics and handy procuring/styling roundups that some of my other running a blog pals had, but I hardly ever experienced time to do it myself–much less the time to do them Perfectly. 😆

I ultimately bit the bullet and uncovered the ladies of 2 Social Co and it’s been Astounding. They have finished an outstanding career bringing my Blessed Mag fashion collage-inspired aspiration to existence. If you have been following together on Instagram, you’ll notice I’ve been putting up a good deal far more of these very graphics! You can see them all  printed on LTK as perfectly if you miss out on them on stories!

I know outsourcing can be really challenging to do, even when if you have the spending plan for it! Regardless of whether which is in your house existence (choosing a cleaning assistance, organizer, house supervisor, handyman, etc!) or your qualified everyday living (outsourcing several experienced responsibilities you aren’t fantastic at or just never have the bandwidth for), but each and every time I have taken the leap, it’s been an complete godsend and I simply cannot advocate it adequate. If you have been on the fence about it, contemplate this my push! 😘

New Rothy’s code! Entire transparency, Rothy’s is a sponsor! But they’ve opened my price cut code back again up for 48 more several hours! They are so attractive-they saw I was incorporating a lot of my Rothy’s shoes and my tote in my collages and they asked me to do extra stories about the solutions I adore and also opened my code back up! Code JESSKEYS20 will get you $20 off your very first time order of $100 or far more! Shop all their solutions here! (My favorites are their driving moccasin, “the square” flats, and their tote bag! All are washable and manufactured of 100% recycled ocean plastic! 

Freda Salvador sneakers on sale!! This Hardly ever comes about. I have never noticed the white leather-based edition on sale right before, and even better–they’re 25% off as component of the Bloomingdales Pals and Family members sale, this means, the sale value saves you $73! 🤯 I just cannot imagine it! They are my almost certainly my #1 most worn shoe in heat weather and I can not advocate them enough. I compensated comprehensive price tag for them and I would pay out entire price tag once more for them in a heartbeat. Additionally, Freda Salvador is a smaller, girl-owned brand, so I enjoy to assistance them! ♥️

“Why have youngsters?! It seems so tricky!” I liked this Cup of Jo piece on the most magical areas of motherhood if you will need a experience-good browse. You do not will need to be a mom to take pleasure in it! I even had baby-free by option readers DM me just after I shared it on Instagram saying, “this was so sweet and manufactured my eyes properly up with joyful tears!” 

Hope you have an totally wonderful weekend!
