The Brass Clothing Kit Gift

this post is sponsored by Brass, but the words and opinions are of my own.

If you’re still stumped on what to get your best friend, working mother, fellow fashion lover or even your minimalist pal – look no further.

Brass has put together the perfect Kit Gift  – a gift box that includes:

  1. A gift card for $300
  2. Their most popular black sweater (I loveeee it – even with this pregnant belly!)
  3. A closet clean out bag – which will recycle all the old clothes you no longer need
  4. Time with their consultant in which they can help with sizing questions, wardrobe needs etc.

It’s literally a perfectly packaged kit that let’s them SHOP new and get rid of old – something they are coining “conscious gifting.”  A $478 value. 

Until 12/31, if you use code WORKYOURBRASS you’ll get free shipping!*

Most of the time, I would prefer to buy my own clothes – so to me I love getting gift cards. I know some folks feel like it’s not personable enough – but with this kit, they still get a sweater and they have the opportunity to shop! Total win win.

I love the idea of LESS thought into what you wear (since we all reach for the same things over and over again anyway) so we can focus our energy and time on the real things like matter.

If you’ve never heard of Brass, they are a simplified more capsule type clothing brand that focuses on the quality, versatility and purpose of each of their pieces – making them a true gem in an industry where it’s everything trendy or over the top.

How they differentiate themselves from others, like say Everlane, is this – they build and help facilitate in creating your new and better wardrobe. From their key pieces (like this sweater, the trouser pant and button down shirt) to the closet clean out bags, they truly make it simple to upgrade, purge and create that capsule wardrobe we all remind ourselves that we need.


This is 34

Another year around the sun in a blink of an eye.

I remember going into this year hopeful, optimistic and open. I know I may not talk about everything on here – but with multiple miscarriages, parents in and out of the hospital, a sister across the country and major friend break-ups it’s been a challenge here and there for sure. Life isn’t perfect as little squares imply.

If there’s anything I’m learning more about myself and this single life I’ve been given it’s to cherish it, live it and focus on what’s important.

With another baby boy on the way, a 5 year wedding anniversary in a couple weeks and a sister moving home before Christmas – I’d say I’ve got it all. Thirty-three wasn’t bad, in fact I learned a lot – from taking better care of myself, being present, being OPEN and adapting to work changes and new challenges it’s all part of this journey. My journey. 

I can already tell thirty-four is going to be a BIG year for me though and my swelling heart just can’t wait for all that life has to offer.

Card game | Camera & Printer | Play Mat | Kitchen Set-up | Name Prints

Loveee the name print so much (I think Hudson is spot on!) but also the durable (practical) play mat and the fun kitchen and Meme game will sure to be a hit.

Giveaway with Promptly Journals

Since it’s officially December, I’ve teamed up with a few amazing brands to do some giveaways this month! I don’t know about you but it’s that time of year where I get more excited to GIVE than to receive. 

The first giveaway this month is with the lovely folks at Promptly Journals. 

They do an incredible job at helping you preserve tangible memories that ultimately turn into a beautiful keepsake. Their journals are designed for love stories, travel journeys and roads to parenthood – whether that be your infertility journey, adoption process, or your own pregnancy.

Most of my life from college on has been on this blog – so I’m really looking forward to hand writing this new journey I’m on. It’s not only refreshing but will be an intimate reminder of everything I’ve experienced with baby boy #2.

So I’m giving (1) lucky Instagram follower a chance to win a $75 shop credit to Promptly Journals!

Maybe you’d love one for yourself (I totally get that!) or maybe if you win it’ll be the best gift for someone you know – that’s for you to decide.
