Happy Monday my beautiful friends!
I hope you all had a great weekend! We enjoyed the beautiful weather we're finally having by taking Aviah to the park both Saturday and Sunday. I'm finding it a bit more challenging to play with her at the park, so I often have to wait until Sundays, when Eddie's off to go with her because she, of course, loves to run and play around, but I just can't go on the big slides with her. She always gravitates to the big kid part of the park, lol.

Happy Friday my sweet friends!
Though this weather has been rather wacky, believe it or not, summer is right around the corner. So, I thought it would be the perfect time to share some of my personal summer essentials. These are all pieces I find myself reaching for all season long because they're not only stylish, most importantly, they're practical for being comfortable in the heat. To shop each piece in the set, simply hover over and you'll see a little black box appear. Click on it and it'll take you over to the item to shop....

Happy Wednesday friends!
If you're a Sephora shopper then you know they just ended their annual spring sale on Monday. I've only been shopping the sale since last year, which I had shared on stories that I had gotten the Fresh Brown Sugar Body Polish Exfoliator and Caudalie's Deep Cleansing Exfoliator. I ended up really loving both products and did a review on the Caudalie exfoliator, which you can read here.
All of the brands I purchased from, with the exception of the Clarisonic, are...

Happy Monday and Happy May my beautiful friends!
It certainly feels like forever since my last post, which was roughly a month ago. I kid you not, every time I would have the intention to prep a post, something would come up that would get in the way. In addition, I'm sure you can imagine how hectic things are getting by the day with being 7 months pregnant now with a toddler! Aviah is home with me full time. I don't have any assistance from family members or a nanny and Eddie has 60hr work weeks, so it gets pretty challenging. Once I find a formula that works, I can promise more consistency. Until then, I urge you to subscribe to my blog via Bloglovin', so you'll know when a new post is up!

It seems many of you loved your experience with doulas and alternative methods to ease contractions and help with overall labor. I'll definitely keep you all posted on what we decide to do. As mentioned on Monday, I really want to work with a doula, but they can be expensive and sometimes out of network with insurances, but my insurance does work with some, so I'll have to sift through and read on who I'd ideally like to work with. Wish me luck and keep the suggestions coming if you haven't shared already or forgot to mention something!

Happy Monday my beautiful friends!
I hope you all had a great weekend! We had a wonderful time at the park Saturday and Sunday. The weather was absolutely beautiful, so it was packed with kids and Aviah was loving it! You guys, it's amazing how much growth and development happens in a year. If you saw the post I shared on Stories last week, you saw how big she's getting and I just can't handle lit. She's a little social butterfly and when she's at the park and sees a lot of little ones her age, she pushes my hands away and wants to go do her own thing. Like, what? Lol! To think that this time next year I'll be bringing two little ones to the park is just mind blowing to me.

There are quite a number of items I have on heavy rotation, both when I'm pregnant and not. I think it's incredibly important to have a capsule wardrobe, a building block of what essentially makes getting dressed and defining your overall personal style that much easier. In a day and age where we're constantly on the go, it helps to have pieces your know will always work and can mix and match easily and can evolve with your lifestyle, such as becoming a new mom or carrying you through multiple pregnancies. Today, I'm narrowing in on the oversized button down shirt.

Happy Monday and Happy New Month, my friends!
I've been wanting to wear these pants since I purchased them a few months ago. I had mentioned that I did a bit of maternity shopping at ASOS a while back and this is one of the pieces I got and it's still on sale! It also comes in a non-maternity version. I typically stay away from large floral designs, but it seems as though when I'm pregnant I tend to gravitate towards them for whatever reason. I do pay mind to the other elements in my outfit when styling them though because as I've mentioned in previous posts, the larger pattern can make one appear larger and when you're pregnant, that's not something you want to do, trust me...you're gaining enough weight in a short amount of time as it is, haha.

Happy Wednesday beauties!
Back at the start of February, I shared a post introducing you (if you weren't yet familiar) to a maternity brand, Isabella Oliver. I styled their adorable pink hoodie, which I've been undeniably living in since I received it (see the post here). Eddie can attest to this, lol. It's so cozy and I love the pink shade. This time around, I'm sharing one of their dressier pieces, this beautiful top! What I love about it is that the style seems to be practical for post-pregnancy, since it has the front belt detail to cinch the waist. I'll definitely be seeing how it works after having baby girl. If looks just as great, it really does validate the price because it is on the pricey side.

Happy Monday my sweet friends!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I don't want to get ahead of myself here, but we haven't been doing too bad this March, as it pertains to weather. Usually we'd have at least 2 or 3 snowstorms for just this month alone and so far, we haven't had any this month. In fact, the weather seems to be slowly warming up and I couldn't be happier. Not only am I able to escape hibernation (I'm off pelvic rest!), but I'm able to finally start to wear some of the cute spring and summer maternity pieces I purchased a few months ago that I told you about, which includes this top!
