There is nothing like having a super comfortable dress that can be worn all the time. My latest dress from PinkBlush is so comfortable that I find myself wearing it out, but also a comfy dress for quick errands or just lounging around the house in.

The best part about this Navy Floral Fitted Wrap Maternity Dress is I will totally be wearing it after the baby is born because it will be so easy to nurse in. This dress is the softest velvet material and is the perfect fit from the bust to the length of the dress.

A, B to JAY-Z

ABCABC'sReading ToddlerReadingThe Little HomieToddler ReadingChildren's BooksJay z

Margot has been obsessed with the alphabet lately, so when The Little Homie reached out to us about two of their books we could not resist. One of their best sellers is a book called, “A, B to JAY-Z” and is a children’s book about the alphabet. Each page represents a rapper or singer that begins with that letter and shows a picture of them doing something, usually with the letter that correlates with them.

Another book The Little Homie sells is called, “1, 2, 3 with the Notorious B.I.G“, and counts up to twenty with different rappers as well. Each page shows a different rapper doing something with a different number starting from one to twenty and goes along with lyrics to one of their songs.

I love that these books are made for children, but definitely are a fun read for their millennial parents who grew up with a lot of these singers and rappers. It is also such a great way to spread some diversity and culture into a child’s home library, especially because every caricature in these books is a real person.

These books are the perfect thing for your child, but would also make a fabulous baby shower gift! You should definitely check out The Little Homie, and more of their amazing books on their site!

Mommy and Me Matching Cardigans with PinkBlush

Mommy and me matchingFall weather

Just when I thought I could not love PinkBlush more, I stumble upon their kid’s section. This could get dangerous.

Recently I received the softest, long light gray cardigan from PinkBlush that I am absolutely in love with. It is so comfortable and perfect for this fall weather we’re finally starting to get. It can easily be worn with a cute top and jeans or is perfect to throw on when you’re just going to wear a simple pair of leggings around the house.

The best part is that I found a long gray cardigan that my daughter can also wear during this autumn season from PinkBlush. It is so easy to just throw on her before we go somewhere, and she just looks too cute in it! Although she is still wearing 2T clothes, they are slowly phasing out, so although this 3T is a little big right now, she can wear it for months to come.

I am so excited for this crisp fall weather, and for more adorable matching finds that I’ll be looking for at PinkBlush!

The Sweetest Moccasin Boots with Gracious May

Moccasinsbaby-booties.jpg

How sweet are these little suede moccasin boots from Gracious May? They are the perfect shoe for our two-year-old daughter, and I’ve never loved shoes for her more. The chestnut brown color is great for fall and matches so many of her outfits.

Not only are they simply adorable, but they fit her so perfectly. She normally is a size 6-7 for shoes, and these size 7’s fit her like a glove. These moccasins are so easy to get her feet into, and they zip up and stay up without her being able to kick them off.

They also offer four other colors that are equally as adorable, and I may have to splurge on another pair for Margot. Check out Gracious May’s website to find these sweet moccasins, as well as tons of other sweet children’s products all made in the USA.

It’s sweater weather season! That means I’m whipping out any and all sweaters and sweatshirts that I can fit this pregnant belly into.

Recently I received my new favorite sweatshirt from Dresslily. It says, “Sweater Weather is Better Weather”, and I couldn’t agree more. I love that it has the slouched, off the shoulder look, and is oversized to fit even this pregnant mama.

Today I’m sharing some of my favorite graphic sweatshirts right now on the blog with Dresslily that are super cute and affordable.

Sink Baths with Aveeno

Sink Baths

Word to the wise for all you pregnant mothers out there reading this; sink baths will change your life.

The other day I realized two things. The first is that this little girl is two, and only has a limited number of sink baths left in her life. Soon enough she will not be able to fit in this sink and enjoy this cozy little kitchen environment for her baths.

The second thing I realized is that a bath in the kitchen sink is so much easier for this pregnant mama than a normal bath. I don’t have to awkwardly bend over while my ever-growing belly runs into the side of the tub. This has been so much easier on my back, and sometimes while she’s playing in there I can even get things done around the kitchen. That’s what I call a win-win.

Another win-win is Aveeno. We’ve been using Aveeno baby wash and shampoo, as well Aveeno baby daily moisture lotion and absolutely love it. The baby wash and shampoo blend natural oat extract into a rich lathering wash that cleans without drying. It’s so gentle on skin and hair and leaves a soft fresh baby smell that I simply cannot resist.

Aveeno’s baby lotion helps to soothe and protect my daughter’s delicate skin. It is naturally nourishing and the non-greasy formula absorbs quickly. It is hypoallergenic, fragrance-free and is so gentle for daily use. My daughter’s skin has never been smoother.

I know my daughter won’t stay little forever, so I am enjoying these beautiful moments while I still can.

The Perfect Maternity Top to Transition from Summer to Fall

maternity-fashion.jpg

My favorite season has always been autumn. When the slightest hint of fall comes around you can bet that I will unpack my cooler weather clothes, pull out my fall scented candles, and grab a pumpkin spice latte at the nearest coffee shop ASAP.

The only problem is that sometimes it’s a little too warm to pull out the fall clothes right away. This is when I pull out my transition pieces from summer and fall and they are just as fun to wear as those comfy sweaters.

My recent favorite find is this adorable Ivory Floral Chiffon Ruffle Trim Maternity Blouse from PinkBlush. This is the absolute perfect top to begin wearing during this fall weather when the days are not quite cool enough for sweaters but still slightly warm outside.

It still has a summer floral feel but has beautiful long chiffon sleeves which are perfect for autumn. This shirt is adorable and is so comfortable to wear. I especially love the cinched sleeves and the ruffle trim front that give it a unique look.

This is definitely a top that I will be continuing to wear after pregnancy. Check out so many more adorable maternity tops from PinkBlush that will lead you right from summer to fall.

A Healthy Pregnancy with Promise Prenatal

Maternity

Every week I use an app on my phone to determine what size the baby is, how the baby’s body is developing, and any common pregnancy symptoms this mama may be feeling as well. It always amazes me to see the different senses baby is developing, and how this little human is continually growing inside my own body.

It can be a lot of pressure for a pregnant mama to make sure that she is staying healthy, eating right, and getting enough exercise. That’s why it’s a relief to know that companies like Promise Prenatal put mothers and babies first with every single product they create.

Promise Prenatal has created prenatal vitamins for each trimester with mom and baby in mind, including before pregnancy as well as postpartum. Currently, I am taking the Stage 2 vitamins which I will take through the second and third trimesters. Stage 2 follows the recommendations from the National Institute of Medicine to increase iron at the beginning of your second trimester to help prevent anemia, which is common later in pregnancy. It also provides higher concentrations of vitamin C, calcium and magnesium which mother and baby need during this period of extraordinary growth, and is made from all natural ingredients.

I have also been using Promise Prenatal’s Stretch Mark & Scar Oil. Every time I get out of the shower I rub a little on my growing bump to help prevent stretch marks. It is made from 100% organic oils and helps to maintain healthy, soft & supple skin throughout this pregnancy. Because this is my second pregnancy it feels as though everything is growing so much faster than before. I am so thankful to have this stretch mark oil to help prevent any unwanted stretch marks and lines.

One of my favorite things about Promise Prenatal is that with every purchase they give a mom in a developing country prenatal nutrition. They are a company that truly cares for the health and well being of all mothers and babies.

I may not be the perfect pregnant mother, but Promise Prenatal makes it so much easier knowing I am taking something healthy and safe for my baby and I.

The Perfect Maternity Dress For All Occasions

Just when I thought I couldn’t love Pink Blush more, I received the most perfect maternity dress from them! I have purchased many maternity dresses from Pink Blush, but I have never received so many compliments on a single dress as I have this one. After wearing this dress for my daughter’s birthday party I had tons of comments and questions on the dress so I thought I’d give a little more information here on the blog. It’s called the Pink Hibiscus Floral Maternity Maxi Dress, and I couldn’t love it more.

You can wear it casually or formally.

It’s the perfect dress for all occasions. It is a great party dress, could be dressed up with heels for a more formal setting like a wedding, or could simply be paired with a jean jacket to wear casually out to dinner.

Second Birthday

The pattern and color are so flattering.

The light pink color is such a sweet, flattering color for any pregnant mama. The hibiscus floral pattern is simple and not too busy on the dress, which gives it a classic look.

Pink Blush

It is so comfortable.

This dress is made of the softest polyester and spandex material which gives it a great flow and is slightly stretchy to perfectly fit that growing belly. You will not want to take this dress off.

Second Birthday Party

It has pockets.

I mean, do I need to say more?

Maternity dresses

It fits like a glove.

When I am not growing a human I typically wear a size small. This dress is a size small and fits perfectly with every measurement.

Pregnancy Clothes

It can be worn after pregnancy.

This dress has the perfect fit to be worn during pregnancy as well as after pregnancy. The cinched waistline falls right under the bust to make it comfortable anytime you choose to wear it.

Check this dress out, and check out other adorable maternity clothes from Pink Blush!

These Boots Are Made For Crawling

IMG_1576

There is nothing cuter than handmade clothing on children. Growing up my grandmother always made handmade slippers and booties that my cousins and I had fun wearing when we got to her house. She made tons of different sizes and colors for us to choose from when we got there, and I always loved how warm and cozy my feet were. Well, that and sliding around the kitchen floor so well in them.

When I found this cute little Etsy shop, I was so excited to find something handmade for Baby #2. The shop These Boots Are Made For Crawling is the perfect handmade shop that makes the most adorable baby booties for tiny feet. She makes the sweetest designs and has styles for both genders. From animals like foxes, monkeys and elephants, to sports themed booties like footballs and baseballs every single bootie is made specifically for babies with love and care.

I was so happy to find the cutest little unicorn booties for our baby girl due in December. They have the sweetest little eyes, with a gold horn and beautiful rainbow fringe coming from the back. You can tell they were made with such care, and I cannot wait to see our little girl in these booties!

Check out These Boots Are Made For Crawling’s Etsy Shop to find the perfect little booties for your little one. They also would make an adorable shower gift!
