First trip as a family of three officially in the books! We took Chloé James to the city, it’s one of our very favorite places! Nothing really compares to New York City!

When booking this trip, Chase and I thought carefully about what we’d be doing and where we’d be staying in the city with a 2 month old baby girl! (We didn’t want her getting sick or too hot!) We found the PERFECT hotel to stay at though, the Intercontinental Barclay! It’s right on the line of being in mid town & the upper east side, so CLEAN! Our room was spacious and big! Much bigger than any room we’ve ever stayed in while in the city! (It was really clean and smelled amazing too!) The Intercontinental Barclay had a beautiful, spacious lobby with food right off to the side, a continental breakfast with all the options, and an enormous crystal chandelier that Chloé James loved to gaze at! (It was so cute!) The staff was incredibly helpful and so so kind! They always said hello to Chloé, helped us with our bags & stroller, and even got the elevator for us! (Talk about going the extra mile!) This hotel is also dog friendly! We thought about bringing PG with us but ultimately opted out considering it was our first time flying and traveling with a baby!

I’m not even going to lie to you guys.. I miss their bathroom! It was so beautiful! It had the prettiest sink, marble countertops, the cutest subway tile, and a mirror perfectly lit to get glammed up! #TakeMeBack! If you’re wanting to visit the city, Chase & I both highly recommend this hotel! Between the incredible staff, perfect location, and spacious suite, it was a 10/10 for us Happily Ever Allens!

Seeing Chloé in the city was honestly the cutest thing ever! You don’t see many babies in New York, so everyone who saw her lit up and smiled! She brought joy to so many New Yorkers! Chloé enjoyed Central Park, soho, the Brooklyn bridge, cab rides, lots of naps, and of course her stay at the Intercontinental Barclay! She also brought some zzz’s to the city that never sleeps! Poor baby girl was so tired! She’s little enough that she can snooze anywhere right now so Chase & I lucked out!

Where should we go next?! Drop a comment below!

Thanks for looking in our first trip as a family of 3! <3 If you want our full NYC HACKS & TRAVEL GUIDE, click HERE! We have previous blog post that we still swear by! xx

Once I became a mom to Chloé, catching some me time became scarce! (I don’t even have time to go to the bathroom somedays!) I’ve often felt gross and just dirty from changing diapers all day, bring spit up on, and not having the time to hop into the shower! 

Lucky for me though, I just found a new dry shampoo + dry conditioner and it’s unreal! It’s the new Pantene Waterless Collection that includes the Never Tell Dry Shampoo Spray and theMist Behaving Dry Conditioner Mist! It helps me look, smell, feel clean in just a matter of seconds! (And I can go 7-8 days without washing my hair which is a HUGE time saver!) 

When my hair is greasy and needs a wash, I grab my Pantene Never Tell Dry Shampoo, lift up my hair -section by section - and spray the dry shampoo directly into my roots (or wherever my hair is in need of refreshment most)! This Never Tell Dry Shampoo Spray is one of the only dry shampoos I’ve tried that doesn’t leave the white residue in your hair, which is AMAZING! And then, I will massage it into my scalp for about 8 seconds! (Just to disperse the productfully at my roots!) The Pantene Never Tell Dry Shampoo Spray has Pro-Vitamin B5 and wild mint that gives your hair a fresh start by absorbing dirt and oil. 

After I’ve applied the Pantene Never Tell Dry Shampoo Spray, I grab my Pantene Mist Behaving Dry Conditioner Mist and spray from the mid-shaft to the ends of my hair, and then brush it through! It is infused with Omega-9 lipids that fully absorb to your hair and helps maintain any frizz I have and makes my hair smell amazing! And it make it silky soft! This is the first dry conditioner I’ve ever tried and I’m so in love with it! 

I repeat these steps daily until I have time to wash my hair! I used to only go 3 days between washes, and now I can go 7-8 days between washes when I use this Pantene duo! It takes me about 2 hours to wash, dry, and style my hair, and it only takes me 1 minute to spray on this dry shampoo & conditioner!

Let’s be real here, I think all of us find ourselves running late, feeling overwhelmed, or just not having enough time for everything! The new Pantene Waterless Collection is one way we can simplify our lives & help put some hours back on our clock! If it helped me, I know it can help you!

If you’re looking to simplify your life, or just need some extra time in your day, you need to try the new Pantene Waterless Collection!!!! Pick yours up now at Kroger – I promise you won’t regret it!

Hey MTV welcome to our CRIB! (Baby Crib that is!) <3 Guys.. My heart is BURSTING right now! I’ve been so excited to share this post with you! Putting baby girls nursery together has been pure magic. Her room has turned into the heart of our home and I wouldn’t want it any other way! <3

Chase and I had the best time together setting up baby girls nursery! Week by week, with every piece that went up, our little one felt closer to being here. It was crazy getting everything built and put into place knowing that soon baby girl would be dwelling here. It was kind of a surreal process! We will always cherish these memories of us working on her nursery together and can barely believe that baby girl is almost here! (Any day now.. just waiting on YOU baby girl!) 

With some help from our amazing interior designer, Lexi Laycock, we decided to go with a light and airy feel in the nursery, accompanied by some fun color pops, and a little bit of class! I feel like the nursery has a few different vibes going on in it which is perfect for baby girl! With a diverse nursery like this, we’ll have the option to tweek the room to fit her personality and needs more once we get to know her! (And I love that! If we do end up changing her room, we’ll update pictures on this post!) 

When Chase and I moved into our house this passed November, we definitely invested in a handful of pieces! But with baby girls nursery, we SCORED and were able to find some amazing deals/sales on all of these pieces making the entire room incredibly affordable! For instance, this furniture set is sold at multiple stores, and you can always find them on a deal! And the trendy gold mirror and wooden shelves were each under $35.00 from target! The woven light we also  scored on sale, same with the beautiful work of wall art

Some little touches we added and love about her nursery are the drawer organizers, the live plant + pot, and the modern rocker! It made her room feel custom, fresh, and clean! <3 Everything you could hope for in a room!

Thanks for stopping by and sharing this journey with us loves! You guys are the best and WE LOVE YOU!

Couch // Light (similar) // Coffee Table (similar // Rug (similar) // Coffe Table Book

Ever since we started building our home,  we’ve been on the hunt for the best furniture we can possibly find! (We’re officially all things house obsessed!)  

We scored when we found this beautiful modern couch from Burrow! We ordered this couch recently and it was shipped to our house in no time! Our Burrow was easy to set up, it’s comfortable, durable, and dang affordable! (They also offer financing on it through affirm!)

The thing we love very most about Burrows couches is you can easily switch the chaise to either end of the couch, and add or takeaway pieces! We haven’t found many couches like this on the market! You always have to select which side the chaise is on, but not with Burrow! This is perfect for us while we’re in the transitional stage of building and adding to our home collection!

We went with their Chaise King Sofa model and highly recommend it! In fact, we’re thibking about adding an arm chair and ottoman to complete the collection! 

Burrows come in a handful of sizes and shades, and there’s a few different options to tweek them to your ideal perfection! (Like the color of the legs, height on arm rests, etc!) We are excited to play around with this couch in our new home and see which way will look and fit best! 

Thanks for tuning in guys! Now, excuse us while we get our Netflix and chill on! xx
