MATERNITY PHOTOSHOOT: OUTFIT INSPO

I planned on sharing our maternity photos before Sadie was born but since the past weeks have been such a blur, excited to finally share now! Better late than never! Naiya, Phil and myself had so much fun snapping these a few weeks back while we dreamed about what our family of four would be like. Throughout the shoot, I remember feeling like I was about to pop and wondered how much longer Sadie could possibly stay in my belly.  She was clearly running out of room in there and I couldn’t wait for her to come out! Looking back at these photos now, though, dare I say I actually already miss the bump?!  I had such a tough pregnancy where I was very sick and threw up every day and yet I still look back at this time missing it! Am I crazy?

SADIE AMELIE’S BIRTH STORY

Just over two weeks into welcoming Sadie Amelie into our lives, I still can’t believe I’m a mom to another daughter! My heart has expanded further than I ever could have imagined and I feel like the luckiest mama alive!  Excited to share Sadie’s birth story with you today as well as some of our favorite photos from the first few minutes she came into the world.  Phil and I will savor these shots forever and we’re so grateful they’ll help us to relive one of the most incredible moments of our lives for years to come.

37 WEEKS PREGNANT IN VIONIC HEELS

37 weeks pregnant in vionic Paloma wedge heels

As a busy full-time working mama, giving up comfort for style is a non-negotiable. I’m constantly balancing running after our non-stop toddler with being in the office or on set and my feet need to be pain-free to do all the things! Excited to share a shoe brand with you today that I’m loving for all of the above reasons and more.  Also sharing a much-needed bump-date! This baby could come any day now!

PREPPING NAIYA TO BECOME A BIG SISTER (ISN’T EASY!)

I’m officially 33 weeks pregnant today and I’m already bigger than I was when I delivered Naiya. Needless to say, I feel like a giant whale who is ready to pop at any moment (but somehow, I still have so much more time to go)! Since it’s been a while since I’ve been able to post an update for you, sharing the latest and greatest with on my pregnancy journey, family life and how we’re prepping Naiya to become a big sister.

TULA: CLEAN SKINCARE REVIEW

I’m just over 7-months prego but I’ve officially surpassed the size I was when Naiya was born. It’s hard to believe I have over two months to go! Either I’m carrying a ten pounder in here or my body has decided to pop to the max for baby #2. Getting dressed these days feels like a total body workout–let alone putting on any makeup. To save myself the hassle of wearing makeup (especially in this crazy summer heat!), I’ve turned to some natural skincare products that have helped me to feel confident going bare-faced. Sharing one of my favorites today, how I’ve been using it and where you can snag it. Scroll down for a special discount code that you can use at checkout too!
