About Mandy

Thanks for checking out my blog! I'm so glad you're here.

My name is Mandy.

I'm a young wife and mother living in Northern Oregon with my husband and our 3 little boys.

I studied cosmetology at the Aveda Institute of Denver and plan to get back in the industry when I feel ready to do so. For now, I love getting to stay home with my boys!

My husband and I met when I was 18. He's from South Dakota and from the moment we met, I knew he was the person I wanted to spend my life with. He is my best friend, my support system, my lover and everything I could ever want in a man. He's pretty darn amazing! 

I love my boys hard and try my best every day. I'm not some Pinterest perfect mom, I'm just a real mom with many imperfections and have lots to learn :)

I love being crafty and making things. I always need some kind of creative outlet to keep my sanity. Right now that looks like being an influencer/blogger and running my photography business, Eagleshield Photo.

I love all things hair, makeup and fashion. Finding some cute new clothes makes me feel like a brand new woman, especially when I can score a great deal. Thrifting is one of my love languages for sure.

At the moment I have my septum pierced and I've good a good amount of tattoos. I love being able to express who I am with my body! It makes me happy. Life is too short to not have fun and be who I want to be!

I try to keep things as real and honest as I can in my little corner of the internet.

I am striving to create a positive community for all women in all walks of life. Too often we as women struggle on our own and have no one to turn into. I say no more! You are welcome here, you are loved, and you are worthy. We all have a unique story to tell and have so much to offer. Don't ever doubt that. Join my Facebook group and be part of a community that was built to uplift, empower, and help women like you and I.

Can't wait to get to know YOU!

I'm going to apologize in advance if this is all over the place. Hahaha. Blogging while your needy sick toddlers are around isn't the easiest and I've thought of a million different things I want to talk about as I've been writing, so this may seem a bit scatterbrained. Lol. But hopefully this can help some of y'all that have wanted to start doing this! I enjoy being honest with you guys and hope that you all know how thankful I am for every one of you that I have connected with online!

If you've been following me on Instagram for awhile, you'll know that I haven't been doing this for a long time. In fact, my first collaboration wasn't even until around April of this year, so I've only been doing this for around 9 months. I'm still very …

Bloomlife Pregnancy Tracker + Contraction Monitor Review

I can't believe that as of today I am 34 weeks pregnant. This pregnancy has flown by and we are so close to meeting our third son! I've had the opportunity to try a product recently that has been incredible and I'm so excited to share about it with you guys. I'll be sharing about the Bloomlife contraction monitor in this post and sharing my honest review.

Most of you know this is my third pregnancy. Now, I'm no expert at motherhood and pregnancy, but I do have some experience since this is my third time around. With my first two sons, I never felt any Braxton Hicks. Braxton Hicks are contractions that occur before real labor. They are normal to experience and they are not a sign that you're about to give birth. I like to think of them as the bodies way of preparing for labor. They can start fairly early in your pregnancy and you might not even know that you're experiencing them.  (A good thing to remember about Braxton Hicks and real labor contractions is …

Instagram Tips + Tricks

So you want to increase your engagement on your posts? Perhaps you have a small business and you feel like your posts aren't getting seen? Or maybe you're a mom like me trying to do this whole influencer thing and want your engagement to be better? I'm sharing some tips and tricks that I've learned along the way to help you out and teach you how to best use Instagram.

It would be nice if Instagram weren't all about numbers, but let's not kid ourselves. It is. Most people want to reach the 10k mark so they have the swipe up feature for their followers. And a lot of companies tend to reach out to accounts with large followings. It makes sense, it's business. But don't let it get you down. I myself have 5k followers and I'm not letting that keep me from trying to grow my page and get out there.

So, let's talk engagement real quick. If you don't know what engagement means, I'll break it down for you. A lot of companies that work with influe…
