Thank you to Mirum for partnering on today’s post. As always, all thoughts, opinions, and styling are my own.
You’ve probably heard about all the different ways that having a baby will change your life (and body), and while it’s not all bad, there have definitely been some surprises I didn’t expect! Weight gain, swelling – let’s not even get into the changes that breastfeeding causes – all of which are pretty normal. I fully expected it’d take time for my body to get back into the swing of things. But I didn’t realize that some things would NOT go back to normal even now 10 months post pregnancy. I thought it would be helpful to share these things for several reasons:
• To give future or expecting mamas a realistic look at postpartum body changes
• To reassure current mamas that you’re not going through it alone
Again, these are things that no one really told me. I had to Google a few of them, and once I mentioned them on IG Stories, I realized that there were SO many people who had similar experiences! I’m also sharing a product recommendation that has given me relief for one of them – and I’d love for you to share if you have experienced any of the below or found products that have helped!
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and there have been so many cute love-themed items popping up lately! I pulled together a list of my faves that you can enjoy whether you’re pampering yourself through the holiday or getting glammed for a date night. It’s the best time of the year to wear pink (and red) so take advantage and grab these pretty pieces below!
I can’t believe we’re already coming to the end of January, but I’m back this week with a round up of my favorite purchases, plus a few pieces in my shopping cart! Ahead, you’ll find a small list of items that are going to be hot this year from wearable flats to spring-ready tops and dresses. Now’s the best time to shop, because after a long month, we all need to treat ourselves! As always, click anywhere below to shop!
I think it’s an understatement to say – I’ve tried A LOT of products this year. From skincare to makeup and hair to health. I’ve been working on a list of my favorite things that I’ve discovered in the past 365 days to create a 2019 TOP 10 LIST. It’s my favorite discoveries across ten different categories. In some categories, it was difficult to just pick one, so if there were ties, I included all items. I’ve also included honorable mentions and other tried and true products that I love in the same categories. The goal is to have a list of favorites all in one place (rather than scattered across different blog posts) that includes what I’m loving and still using after this year!
I’d love to hear if you have any stand out favorites from this year for me to try out. I’m also working on what I’m calling my MASTER LIST where I’ll be sharing comprehensive lists of favorite items in even more categories – I’m SO excited about this one. I’ve been compiling the lists for months now! Stay tuned!
White elephant parties are fun in theory but only if you end up with a good mix of presents that appeal to everyone. Although it can be quite the challenge, I’m always determined to find that one thing everyone wants to unwrap – or steal – at a holiday party. This year, I found tons of options that will ensure that nobody goes home disappointed whether you’re looking for something cool, funny, or trendy. For instance, this nifty little gadget is perfect to have by the desk while this game will keep the holiday party going all night long. Keep scrolling for more genius gift ideas!
