I fell in love with Ana's blog, Live and Enliven, a few months back and I am always excited when I see her posts pop up in my Bloglovin' feed. She has wonderful stuff over on her site. She offers up inspiration in the form of stylish ensembles, recipes, gorgeous photos, music recommendations and DIY's. She's a woman after my own heart!
When my daughter - Emma was just a little blob of a girl I used to chose all my clothes and accessories around the facts that there was a 99% chance that I'd get baby puke on my clothes and that she would probably get distracted with my earrings and try to rip them off my ears.
I used to sit on my desk for hours doing everything a stay at home/work at home mom should do. I'd blog, design, take feeding breaks, work some more, play breaks, tummy breaks and so on... Having colorful, interesting and safe toys was a must and so was wearing things that could be licked and bitten by a toothless creature who was suffering from itching gums.
Mandy Besek's creations are equal parts artful and fun. My Emma would have loved to play around with these beauties and I would have adore wearing them.
Gywneth is now nearly nine months old and I was just telling my mother-in-law that we are in a "no jewelry phase" right now. She is grabbing and putting everything in her mouth and the idea of wearing earrings is terrifying! This post from Ana is perfectly timed! Thanks so much Ana for the guest post and for the jewelry suggestions! Please take a minute to check out Live and Enliven!
