Toddler Survival Kit : The Fourth Of July

Toddler Survival Kit : The Fourth Of July

Let’s be real, those summer time holidays aren’t as fun with little ones. Of course they have their moments and everything is special because maybe it’s their first Independence Day or they’re big fans of fireworks.  But it gets to a point where all you […]

Motherhood Update: Bodhi at 2 Month

Wow, two months with my little Bodhi blue. I can’t believe it honestly. It feels like ever since he arrived things have moved at a very rapid pace. Maybe its been all the running around that fall can bring or maybe its just that with […]

The other day temperatures reached an all time high, well at least for me they did. I’m in the third trimester of my second pregnancy and oh boy are these pregnancy symptoms coming out of the woodwork. All day yesterday I was fanning myself and staying hydrated, I was definitely having a hot flash or too. I’ve always said that my second trimester was the BEST time every during my first pregnancy and it’s safe to say that the second time around was no different. Theres just something about it, you’re not too big yet you don’t really have symptoms as much as you did while adjusting in the beginning or near the end when your body is doing the prep work for delivery. It’s just a nice slice of time where everything stands still and you get to just enjoy the baby bump and food cravings. Sadly I’m not longer living that beautiful dream anymore. Don’t get me wrong the third trimester isn’t bad its just different. Things are getting real and the time seems to fly by more rapidly than in the beginning. Things I felt I had months to do are dwindling down to weeks and soon it will be days. Ahhh!!!

In the mean time I’ve stopped all maternity purchases I’m good I’ve only got ten weeks left so I’m going to “make do” with what I have and keep it simple. Today’s is another non-bump purchases, I wore a draped BCBG Maxazria skirt. I love the color of this skirt it reminds me of a blue lagoon or deep periwinkle tone which is great for accentuating a tan. I kept it simple on top and just paired it with a white tank. I threw on a BCBG Generation blouse over it to complete the look with add a little extra pop. The blouse used to zip up but well that’s not happening any time soon so I’m keeping it in rotation as a cover up. I kept my make up light and my hair half up half down for a simple sleek look. Near the end of pregnancy I try to keep everything simple, throw on and go is my motto. You may not always get as stylish of a look as you’re after but remember you are going through the miracle of pregnancy. It doesn’t always feel like a miracle but anything amazing isn’t going to come that easy. So just be confident and remember you are BEAUTIFUL!

    Since my son Gunnar was born of course I have noticed a change in my priorities but not in the way I expected. During my pregnancy I was very mindful to remind myself that Gunnar and my body weren’t the only things going […]
