I am really excited to partner with my friends at Clorox to share my new secret weapon in the laundry room. Clorox 2® Stain Remover & Color Booster Liquid keeps me from freaking out whenever Lilly or Fletcher spill something down their shirt. It works on all sorts of stubborn stains like juice, blood, grass… and it’s so easy to use. I just add the Clorox 2® Stain Remover & Color Booster liquid formula with my detergent and it removes 4 times more stains and brightens 2 times more than my detergent alone.

 

 

This is amazing because, as you know, kids will be kids. Messes happen. Unexpected (expected?) stains happen. And Clorox 2® helps me keep all of Lilly and Fletcher’s cute clothes bright and fresh so they are looking and feeling their best, too. They have more important things to think about than if their clothes look bright and fresh… like school, playdates, and making our favorite cookies!

 

 

Lilly and Fletcher both had birthdays in November and they each requested these special cookies to take to class. They really are amazing, but what I love most is making them together.

 

 

Remember when I said Clorox 2® keeps me from freaking out about spills? Super chill mom over here.

 

 

I mean, how could I be mad at these happy faces?

 

 

For anyone wondering what our favorite recipe looks like… here you go!

 

CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES:

1 cup butter

1 1/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup white sugar

2 large eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

3 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 cup chocolate chips (add to desired)

 

In a mixing bowl cream butter and sugars. Add the egg and vanilla extract and beat until combined. Next add the dry ingredients and mix for 3 minutes. Fold in the chocolate chips. Refrigerate dough for 20 minutes. Form 2 inch balls and place on a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350F for 8 – 10 minutes. Let cool on cooling rack.

 

 

It takes a village to raise a family. A helping hand from our friends at Clorox sure is nice, too :)

 

PS: For families with sensitive skin Clorox 2® Free & Clear Stain Remover & Color Booster delivers full Clorox® power for your laundry, all without dyes and perfumes! So it’s gentle on your senses, but tough on stains. :)

Once I started digging further I realized that the whole collection is comprised of classic, easy to wear sweaters with fun little details that make them special. Bonus, Cable Stitch is on Amazon Prime and is in the $50 – $70 range!

You guys… Black Friday/Cyber Monday is always SO much fun. So fun. BUT as a blogger it can be a lot to keep up with. Last night I was thinking about what type of round up post I would like to do for Cyber Monday and I decided that I didn’t want it to be a carbon copy of Black Friday’s post. I love sharing all of my favorite shops and finds from each. And if you want to see a bunch of them, check it out here because no doubt all of these stores are doing something amazing today, too. But today I want to focus on only 5 special sales. Because sometimes less is more. Who’s excited?

 

 

TOP 5 CYBER MONDAY SALES:

 

ANTHROPOLOGIE: 20% off full priced items! This cardigan is just plain dreamy. I’m also digging this thermal tunic, this flutter sleeve pullover, and this pink silk dress. Don’t forget about their home section!

 

GLOSSIER: 20% off everything. If you haven’t tried Glossier before now’s the time. If you’re a Glossier devotee like me then now’s the time to stock up on your favorite. My products I use every day are this milky  jelly cleanser, this sheer matte lipstick (i love the zip shade), cloud paint blush, and their cult favorite – boy brow!

 

NORDSTROM: Extra 20% off sale items. This asymmetrical sweater is just about perfect. Also be sure to see this cashmere cardigan, this ruffle hem sweater, and this tibi pom pom sweatshirt is so fun.

 

SHOPBOP: Take an additional 35% off sale items! Th perfect holiday heels right here. This self portrait dress is gorgeous and so is this blue draping sweater. Also my favorite pom pom bag in all the colors (ps I will be giving away one of these in this year’s lll holiday giveaway!).
