Stroller on Fleek! Bugaboo Runner Just Took It Up A Notch

Before I even had a baby, I knew Bugaboo was THEE stroller for the elite sector of chic mamas. They’ve always blended style with function seamlessly and it was easy to see why it was in such high demand … unless you were looking for a jogger. Those chic mamas on the move had to go elsewhere when looking for a durable stroller that they could take on a run, that is, until now. Bugaboo has heard your cries, you fit and fabulous mother, and they have delivered the Bugaboo Runner!

Gift Guide: What To Get The Dad With Everything?!

Charlie B loves her daddy so, so much (and I do too ;-), which means when Father’s Day rolls around we try really hard to get him a great gift. I don’t know why, but the task seems almost impossible. He’s not hard to shop for, but it just feels like there aren’t a lot of great gifts for Father’s Day. That is until now. After countless hours of searching (you’re welcome), I’ve finally complied a list of items I deem Daddy Day approved! And, because I love you (and because Amazon is awesome), I’ve include links to where you can buy everything (again, you’re welcome, lol).

Quick & Tasty No-Bake Energy Bites

I’ve seen these little no-bake energy bites on Pinterest for quite some time, but last night (at midnight!) I finally decided to make them. It took virtually no time at all, PLUS they’re super yummy and healthy. Win-Win-Win!


1 cup (dry) oatmeal (I used old-fashioned Quaker oats)
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup ground flax seed
1/2 cup chocolate chips (minis may be better)
1/3 cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch of cinnamon


Stir all ingredients together in a medium bowl until thoroughly mixed. Cover and let chill in the refrigerator for half an hour.
Once chilled, roll into balls of whatever size you would like. (Mine were about 1″ in diameter.) Store in an airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to 1 week.
Makes about 20-25 balls.

Recipe spotted @ Gimme Some Oven (although I tweaked it a bit..took out the coconut and added a pinch of cinnamon.)
