Fertility & Prenatal Nutrition Counseling

By Nicole Fennel, MS, RDN, LD, CLT. Preparing the female body for pregnancy ideally begins during the reproductive years long before pregnancy is actually achieved.

Meet A Houston Mom – Meet Jennifer Metzler of the Fashionable Maven

As a blogger, I have met so many kind and helpful women in Houston! I love how everyone shares information with each other as well as advice for women who are starting out their blogs. I have been able to learn so much about blogging by putting myself out there and going to events or reaching out to other bloggers on Instagram. Most of the women I have reached out to are so friendly and it really feels like community over competition. Which I love so much!

The Press Pause Project: CBD Products Created By Women, For Women

February 19, 2019 | 0 comments

You’ve probably been hearing a lot about CBD—aka Cannabidiol, or one of the chemical compounds found in the Cannabis Sativa plant. Health benefits being discussed for products infused with CBD include reducing anxiety, depression, pain and insomnia—without the psychotropic effects associated with smoking marijuana. Recently, we heard about The Press Pause Project, a line of CBD rich products made for and by women. Their mantra—asking women to “take a moment and press pause”—spoke to us, as did their line of organic, fully-tested and...

Eyelash Extensions: The Perfect Addition For Busy Moms

February 18, 2019 | 0 comments

The mornings usually start when my 2-year-old son awakes around 6:30 am or even earlier if the dog starts barking at the first signs of dawn. If I’m lucky, I can swig a cup of instant coffee before being thrown into high gear dressing my two young sons, making breakfast, packing lunch and trying to get us all out the door to be on time for school at 8:00 am. Waking up early to spend time in the mirror hasn’t been built into my morning routine because I stay up late after my kids go to sleep so I can work on my blog, West...

Upping your Wine & Chocolate Game this Valentine’s Day with Houston Mom Keri Henry

February 11, 2019 | 0 comments

I think it was December 26th when I saw the first Valentine’s Day chocolates infiltrating the aisles of Walgreens after a quick stop to grab a four-pack of 5 Hour Energy to survive the rest of the Christmas break with my kids. I have not met one human that actually buys their Valentine’s loot IN DECEMBER. I am literally still secretly throwing away all that cheap/nasty Halloween candy that’s still above my fridge used to bribe my kids in dire “Put your shoes on NOW” situations. In a world where we have to...
