Happy Wednesday my dear friends!

I hope you're all having a great week so far! As mentioned on Monday, I'm in my 33 week and I'm feeling all types of emotions. I'm overjoyed about meeting our little girl, but sometimes I'm just not in the mood to get dressed or do much of anything. On days like this, I typically turn to a simple tee, maybe one with a cute slogan like this tee shirt; I have to say I'm slightly obsessed with this fabric, it's so stretchy and comfy, paired with jeans and a pair of flats. I've mentioned many times why love slogan tees so much, so I won't go into much detail other than it makes up for an otherwise really boring and basic outfit. It adds a little humor and personality, which I love. Don't shy away from slogan or statement tees because you're insecure with your upper body or midsection, just opt of a style that has a v-neckline and it will help to elongate your neck and visually slim the areas, easy peasy :)

Happy Tuesday my friends!

I don't know about you, but when the weather is warm or hot, I like to be able to just throw on an easy outfit and head out the door to do something fun and not spend much time contemplating what I'm going to wear. The thing is, we just can't throw anything on or I should at least say, we shouldn't, as we still want to look put together, even if it's 100 degrees outside, with a practical outfit of course. I've found that one of the things that can easily make an otherwise simple outfit appear more stylish is the right pair of shoes. You can go extremely basic, like a white tee and a pair of jeans (shorts) and add a cute pair of statement sandals and you look cute and practical for the weather.

Happy Monday my gorgeous friends!

We're nearing the end of my pregnancy with me being 33 weeks, which I still can't believe. This is the time where getting dressed sometimes can post a challenge and you have to avoid purchasing new pieces and figure out ways to re-work what you already have in your wardrobe, especially since we've been having such unseasonably chilly weather here in Connecticut, so I haven't been able to wear dresses as much as I'd like, which are so much easier to work with.

Happy Friday my dear friends!

It's been one crazy week over here and I'm so glad it's finally Friday, anyone else?! I just felt like the whole week dragged on yet the days themselves went by way too fast that I had to try and do so many things in such a short period of time, have you ever felt that way? 

Anyhoo, moving right along...

Happy Wednesday my gorgeous friends!

As we all know, Mother's Day is right around the corner, this Sunday to be exact! I honestly believe we should show our mom's how much we love and appreciate them all year long, as cheesy as that may sound. At the same time, it's nice to have one day entirely dedicated to spoiling our moms and I'm sure your mom would agree, I know mine would, lol. I've talked about how much mom loves nature and I showed you a little glimpse of her little botanical garden in her house a couple of weeks ago when we headed to Brooklyn to celebrate her birthday. Aside from loving flowers, she loves using all natural and organic products, specifically essential oils.

Happy Monday my gorgeous friends!

Okay, so I mentioned last Tuesday how much I look forward to taking part of the denim pearl trend after having baby girl. Another one I'd like to partake in is the raw denim trend, I really love the distressed look on denim no matter where and how it's distressed and I also love the bell fringed hems, too. But, for now, I'm doing it up in a raw collar denim jacket I've had for a few years now. You can imagine how much of a trend setter I felt when this trend came out and I knew I already had this jacket in my closet, haha. I know I'm not the only one who feels quite amazing when that happens, right!?

Happy Friday my beautiful friends!

How was everyone's week? Mine was pretty tiring, then again, I'm going on 32 weeks pregnant now and the fatigue is really starting to settle back in. I experience sudden bursts of energy and then shortly after, I poop myself out and get tired, no matter what it is I'm doing. Which makes today's post a tried and true topic, how to look cute when you just don't feel like putting in the time. Whether you're pregnant, having a lazy day, or just have so much to do that you want to just head out the door and get going, these simple tips will be relevant for you.

Happy Thursday my beautiful friends!

A couple of months ago, La Bella Donna reached out to me to review some of the products in their line. I never heard of the brand before, so I was a bit apprehensive. What sparked my interest and willingness to test it out is that they claim to be chemical free and contain mineral based ingredients that are said to be beneficial for the skin. I made sure to ask if the products were safe to use during pregnancy and I was assured that it is, as once again, they don't contain harmful chemicals and are free of FD&C dyes. This is not to say that I only wear chemical free, organic, or all natural makeup, though 85% of my makeup collection is either vegan or all natural.

Happy Wednesday my gorgeous friends!

One comment I receive often, both in person and here on the blog is, "you can't even tell your pregnant from the front!" Now, I don't intentionally try to conceal my baby bump because I personally feel as though it's something to be embraced, you're carrying around a human that's apart of you and being made in you, what's there to be ashamed of?!

Happy Tuesday my gorgeous friends!

I hope you're all having a great start to your week and new month so far!

There are SO many amazing trends this season; I feel like for the past few seasons, the trends have been so practical haven't you?! One of the many that I'm loving is the pearl accent trend. Pearls are having a huge moment this season and you can find them on nearly every type of clothing piece or accessory. What I love about it is that, for the most part, it can be quite timeless because pearls are classic and elegant and can be worn regardless of age and never appear dated when combined with more modern or contemporary pieces.
