  • Here Comes Baby Kaiser – This Is Everything in My Hospital Bag!

    Hi, y’all! It’s that time again – we officially packed up our hospital bag. I pretty much based this list off what I *actually* used from when I delivered Emmett. Click here to see my first hospital bag packing list! When I was planning my list for this time around, I viewed the stay as a “weekend getaway” and also checked out other blogs with hospital bag packing lists for ideas. At the end of the day I needed the same stuff that I always pack – clothes, shower items, makeup, shoes, wallet, phone and charger. Of course, I also had to pack for Kaiser but it’s really not THAT…

  • 4th of July Outfits That Are Stylish AND Patriotic!

    Hi, y’all! Independence Day is just around the corner and I’m here to bring you 4th of July outfits that are stylish AND patriotic. Just like most people this year, we’ve had to cancel a vacation due to COVID19 and I’m more than ready to get away for the upcoming long weekend. The 4th is one of my favorite holidays because it always involves sun tanning, fireworks, time with family and some patriotic outfits. Let me be clear though – “patriotic” doesn’t have to mean loud and proud red, white and blue stars and stripes all over my outfit! I love to show patriotism but also like doing it in…

  • Pregnancy Closet 101

    Hello! I’m officially 23 weeks and getting close to the end of my second trimester. I’ve been enjoying dressing my bump and I’m here to share how I built my pregnancy closet. GROWING A BUMP WHILE BALANCING A HEALTHY BODY IMAGE Before I start telling you my experience let me go ahead and put it out there: EVERY PREGNANCY IS UNIQUE, BUMPS GROW AT THEIR OWN PACE AND WHAT WORKS FOR ME MAY NOT WORK FOR YOU. I love these pieces but also understand that everyone has different wardrobe requirements (i.e. you won’t really find maternity workwear pieces in my closet since I don’t work in a traditional office) and…

  • Mother’s Day Is Coming! Here’s What You Should Give ❤️ // The Cutest Leopard Dress!

    Hi, there! Mother’s Day is pretty much tomorrow (just kidding… we actually have 2 weeks) so we all need to get it together and order gifts ASAP if that’s the route we’re going. Personally, my love language (if you haven’t read The Five Love Languages, GO READ IT ASAP! Check it here!) is receiving gifts so that’s the most natural way for me to show love. The catch is that not everyone’s love language is gifts. I know… shocking, right!? Outside of gift giving, you can shower that special woman with words of affirmation all day or in a thoughtful card, do acts of service by taking care of all…
