this much [22 mos] | Personal Project

I love this age. Can I just tell you, that although almost two is exhausting, it is ridiculously fun!! She walks. She talks [a lot]. She sasses me back. She shoots me dirty looks. She tells me she loves me. She gives me giant hugs. & she is into ALL things girly. I am made to be a girly mama. Heaven help me if I am ever blessed with a little boy. I am so not into swords and pirates. Power tools, sure, but I much prefer doing hair & nails & wearing dresses. Thank goodness I have a little one who is interested too! :)

I decided it was high time for her first pedi. I am not one for getting my nails done, I usually do them myself, so of course, I was going to do the honor. :) Thanks to many suggestions on the styleberry facebook page, I landed on the “formaldehyde, toluene, phthalate & camphor free” nailpolish brand Zoya to make her piggies pink. I found it locally at our whole foods in a HUGE display of gorgeous, vibrant colors. & two weeks later, her pedi is still intact! Highly recommend! :) I might even give up my beloved OPI for this glossy, quick drying stuff. The colors were to die for. I let her pick & she chose “max.” Beautiful choice, my dear.


& of course, toes weren’t enough…she begged for fingers too. Mama’s not quite ready for that. Just toes…for now. :)

& holy cow, this is late. I usually aim for the 8th of the month (her birthday is 8.8) so I can grab her at exact monthly intervals. But life is so busy right now! Who is still along for the ride? It’s never too late! What is my [this much] personal project?

Mother’s Day (or anytime, really) goodies will be here next week! Along with some other fun things…like DIY no-sew blackout curtains! :)

Hi! Hello! I am Shawna, the founder of Styleberry Blog. This creative corner of the internet has become a learning haven for moms and creatives, offering a warm and encouraging nudge to those who wish to be better and do better, but often don't know where to start. From Decorating to DIY to Diapers and Paleo-ish Dishes, I strive to make the complicated simple and empower women to take action beyond their personal comfort zone. I subscribe to the Shine Theory & so strongly believe that we shine when the women around us shine and mutual support—lifting up instead of tearing down--will always be the culture here. Are you in? I hope so! Beyond the computer, I run Styleberry Creative where I work with clients to create low fuss, high function spaces that are pretty and practical in San Antonio, Texas and beyond. I LOVE making a house a home. My own studs out renovation is now complete and I am now back to working with clients. Please don't hesitate to drop me a line if you'd like to work together! I hope you’ll join me on this fun new adventure! Xo.
