9.5 MONTHS WITH SADIE

How is quarantine time moving by even quicker than normal time? I keep blinking and Sadie and Naiya keep growing another month older and I can’t keep up.  Still working so hard to find the perfect balance between working remotely from home and mom-ing without any breathers and it’s definitely not easy! I’m sure all mamas are feeling the grind this year of all years so I know we’re all in it together. 

ULTIMATE AT-HOME DIY MANICURE

I just got my nail polish 3D-printed for less than the cost of a professional mani and my nails no longer look quarantine-disheveled over here!  If you’re looking for the perfect at-home, salon-perfect mani pedi, sharing a company you should know about today because I’m obsessed. And make sure you scroll down to the bottom of this post for a discount code to try this brand out for yourself.

8.5 MONTHS WITH SADIE AMELIE

As quarantine continues, I’m continuing to soak in all of this extra time with my girls. Today, we’re all dressed up with nowhere to go but we’ve gotten used to this of course.  After singing “Let It Go” from ‘Frozen’ 25 times in a row, Naiya asked if we could wear matching princess dresses and she also wanted “ballerina buns” in her hair.  You ask and you shall receive in this household right now.  We put on matching white dresses and Naiya picked out baby Sadie’s floral onesie.  Linking to all of our looks below as well as some of our favorite family snapshots from the weekend. What month is it even? How much bigger can my eyebrows get?! After all, it’s about the most important questions right now. But in all seriousness, hoping everyone is hanging in there as best as possible in all of this craziness.

SNAPSHOTS FROM JAPAN: YASAKA PAGOTA

Since many of us are still stuck in quarantine and dreaming of travel post COVID, we could all use a little digital getaway. Sharing some of our favorite snapshots from our babymoon in Kyoto, Japan exactly one year ago at the beautiful Yasaka Pagota in the Higashiyama District. The architecture throughout this city is so serene and relaxing, I can’t wait to go back someday (more here and here). We stayed right at the base of this incredible Pagota and waking up to this view was so memorable. In addition to these photos, sharing a basic comfy outfit for prego mamas who will someday be on the go again some day below.

SNAPSHOTS FROM JAPAN: BAMBOO FOREST

One year ago, Phil and I were on our babymoon in Japan. What a difference a year makes! Now, we’re dreaming of a day when we’ll be able to safely leave our homes, let alone travel. After all, COVID-19 has hit us all like a ton of bricks. Since I’ve been dreaming of traveling  a lot recently, sharing some more unpublished photos with you today which we snapped in Kyoto’s beautiful Bamboo Forest (I recently shared more Japan shots here).
