OOTD: Bow Tie and Stripes

I'm so happy the weather is finally starting to cool down and by "cool down" I mean, we're in the 70's now!  One can only hope that the east coast chilly breeze will make it's way over to us soon!

I found this sweater and was shocked when I saw the sale price tag.  Now this is what I would call a "high-low outfit".

OOTD: Stripes and Florals, Again

While the rest of the country is enjoying the autumn leaves and chilly weather, it's still hot and sunny in southern california.
Can't complain though, it's been beautiful even though I recently caught a nasty cold. 
One of the worsts things in my opinion is being sick during the warm weather! Bleh!

Don't mind the bandage on my right hand, I actually burned myself taking a pan out of the oven. Ouch!

Home.

Hi Friends and Happy Friday! 
I'm so sorry for the lack of outfit posts. If you follow me on twitter then you already know that I've been packing up, moving and settling into our new home.  It's definitely a lot more work with a baby in the mix. I hope to be back to regular posting in the next 2 weeks.  In the meantime, I'll be sending out an e-mail next week to the winners of my awesome giveaway!  Thanks for entering! 

Our bedroom is slowly coming together... Finally added curtains to our well lit bedroom.  Instead of using those white suitcases for storage hidden away in my closet, I decided they were too pretty to be hiding. 



I decided to de-clutter my life by getting rid of my vanity table.. I threw away/gave away a lot of beauty products I'd been hoarding for no reason... To simplify my life, I kept my basic essentials and put them all in my bathroom drawers and left my skincare items on the bathroom counter.  So much better for me! 



Last but not least, here is my old Ikea 3 shelf bookshelf I purchased over 5 years ago.. It was still in great condition so I didn't want to throw it out but I wanted to upgrade it to make it look nicer. After debating on whether to paint it or not, I decided to go with a simple wallpaper diy.  It was such an easy diy, took less than 30 mins! I think the results are pretty awesome and it totally changes the look! 


And last, I leave you with a photo of Rylie. She had a little hard time transitioning into the new home, but after a few days, I think she's good now...

How to Keep Confident and Comfortable While Pregnant

Hello friends!  I teamed up with Maternity Sale to share with you some tips on how to stay confident and comfortable while pregnant.  Aside from the pregnancy "glow" and the awesome excuse to eat whatever is in your way without feeling guilty, I know all of you moms out there can relate to some of the woes of pregnancy.

You’re uncomfortable and do not feel like your body is your own anymore. You are looking towards the finish line, but the journey is tough. Small adjustments and additions to your daily life can make all the difference and help you to stay comfortable and confident during your pregnancy. Check out some of my useful tips below!

Figure out what works for you

What do you like? Make a list. What are the things you did before the pregnancy? Why not try to start up again? To be confident you need to be comfortable and enjoying what you’re doing. The two go hand in hand. Do you enjoy foot rubs? Well get one all the time. Are you more comfortable standing up? Well make sure you do it. Find out what makes you feel more like you, and enjoy it.

Move around, sit down


Do not stay in one spot all day. Do what feels right, but let your body enjoy moving. Don’t always stay sitting, or laying, or standing. Your body is undergoing a lot of changes, so as much as it needs mobility, it also needs rest. Remember not to push yourself too much. Find the balance between moving around and staying still. Know yourself and do not do anything that causes pain, or discomfort.

 


Buy some comfortable clothing


Nice maternity wear can be hard to come by; however, it is important to look your best to feel your best. Buying comfortable yet flattering clothing while pregnant is a must as it will keep you feeling confident and looking radiant. For fashion inspiration check out

Keep the romance alive


Your confidence can come a lot from your partner. Their love for you will not fade, but doing little things together will help you to rekindle that spark you fell in love with in the first place. Take time out to just enjoy each other. When you see first hand the way your partner loves you, you will start to see it in yourself. A few special nights together will be well needed before the chaos that comes when those pregnancy months come to an end.

Do not compare yourself to other mothers


Comparing yourself will only lead to undue stress. You are not better, or worse than any other mother. Just like you, they had to figure things out for themselves. Comparing can result in low self-esteem and a lack of confidence. Just worry about you.

Learn as much as you can, but expect to know nothing


You will never know everything. You just have to be comfortable with that. Take time to get as much information as you can. Ask others what worked for them, but know that your experiences will never be exactly like anyone else’s. When the time comes your instincts will take over and you won’t even remember that you were even scared.

What makes you feel confident and beautiful? Comment below with your favorite tricks.
