Glamping. Have you ever heard of it? Its basically defined as glamorous camping. I was sitting in bed one morning thinking of blog post ideas and then it hit me. A “glamping” mommy and me photo shoot for Camille and I!! So I got to work on creating a glam’d out camping experience right in my own back yard. It was also high time my baby appeared on the blog again and I am sure you can agree, she nailed it!
I absolutely love coming up with new ideas and experiences for both Camille and I when it comes to the blog. So my brain was churning on how to turn this backyard space into a campsite. You know the deal: a few tents, camp fire, roasted marshmallows etc. But in the process, I became one tired, overwhelmed mommy. Thats when reality set in and I realized I just need to keep it simple. So simple that I created my very own, DIY teepee tent shown in the pictures!!! It was VERY EASY to do and under $75! Believe it or not, teepee tents are very expensive if you purchase them retail. We’re talking over $100 people! I filmed a video tutorial for you that will be on the blog soon to help you create your own. Stay tuned in the next few weeks so you can see how I created this gorgeous, birch wood, natural inspired tent!
Of course for this to be a legit “mommy and me” post, Camille and I are twinning! It was imperative that we dressed somewhat alike, right? I was so happy when Krystle from KRZA Headbands wanted to work with us for these adorable mommy and me turban headbands. They are super soft, stretchy and comfortable to wear. Camille kept wanting to put it on her head every time she saw her headband. These turbans are perfect touch of glam for our “glamping” experience don’t you think?
I hope you enjoyed this blog post! I know I have been a little silent on the blog front lately, but I have so many blog projects happening that I had to focus on getting those completed. It is my goal to make my blog a full time gig. So I have to put in that WERK to make it happen lol. Please look for more to come and as I stated before, my DIY Teepee Tent Video Tutorial!!
