Leather pants & Raye heels - c/o Marshalls
Blouse - Forever 21













The nesting process has officially begun, which is good because I'm now full-term! The baby items are coming out of storage and we are getting so excited/nervous. I seriously can't wait to find out the gender, that will be one of the biggest motivations for the whole process of labor. I haven't shopped much this time around besides a few gender-neutural swaddle blankets. The one thing I have been shopping for is items to wear after pregnancy. It's definitely getting me through these last few weeks where I feel pretty larger and will provide the perfect motivation to get back into shape. You won't see me in a crop-top anytime soon, but I'm very excited to wear something with an actual waistband.

Sequined Sweatshirt

When items in your closet stop fitting, wearing a sequined sweater shirt makes everything better!
Not only is this one beyond comfortable, but I felt so sparkly and confident wearing it around town-especially with my 8 month baby bump. Some may say sequins are for nights out, but I'm firm believer in wearing them 24/7! I found this sweatshirt at Marshalls for $69.99 compare at $138; I'm crazy about the fit of the top and the tone of the sequins. It's nice to find items that I can wear with jeans during pregnancy that can be dressed up, because at this point in time, comfort is key!

In other news (pregnancy-wise), I'm in the final stretch! We have a month until our due date and absolutely nothing is ready for the baby. I guess that's the beauty of your second pregnancy. Hah! We have essentials (diapers, car seat, crib, onsies) but everything else is still up in the air. Like I've said before, I'm not a huge planner, so thankfully this doesn't make me very stressed! My goal for this week is to get my hospital bag packed and swaddles ordered.

Refreshing My Home

Thursday, January 19, 2017




How perfect is this marble bookend? I spotted it for a whopping $3 in the clearance area



 Alright, I may have splurged on a bag too!
















If you spot this candle on the shelves at Marshalls, please pick it up and smell it. 
I promise you that angels will sing!

Every once in a while I get an itch to purge and refresh my home. We finished our remodel in December and with the stress of the holidays, I have been seriously slacking in the decorating department. With the year starting and a new baby coming in a few weeks (hello, nesting!) I'm itching to get the house in order. Refreshing your home can be a large scale project or something as small as swapping out a few items to your home. One of my favorite ways to freshen up my house is by bringing in fresh greenery from my backyard and lighting clean smelling candles. My home can be crazy, but this helps bring a little serenity and peace to my everyday routine. 

I went to my favorite Marshalls to pick up a few goodies for my kitchen and fireplace decor. I always head there first because I know that I won't spend a fortune on quality pieces. We splurged on beautiful leathered Quartzite countertops, so I really wanted a nice cutting board that we could add on top. Not only does it protect our counters, but it's such a statement. We've received so many compliments on the handcrafted board. I always laugh because who knew you would get so many compliments on a cutting board! One of the items that was important to us when designing our kitchen was to have some glass front cabinets to display pretty dishware and vases. When all the cabinets were put in, I realized I didn't really have much to display, so I've slowly been collecting pieces like this beautiful pale aqua vase for only $12.99. We have a tree full of bay leafs in our yard and I frequently clip pieces off to leave in a vase. So clean and fresh! 

Another project we finished in December was our fireplace facelift. We went for a very clean and simple design and wanted minimal decor on the fireplace to show off the beautiful details. The one must-have item was to find a large piece of art or mirror to add above it. Round mid-century style mirrors have been filling up Pinterest feeds everywhere, so you can understand my excitement when I found this amazing (and heavy!) piece at Marshalls. I was excepting a hefty price tag but it was only $149.99. Score! Those are just a few ways I've refreshed my home and added a little beauty here and there. Now if only I can catch up on my never-ending laundry pile!

Tart Hat - c/o Marshalls
Sam Edelman Heels - Ross













Finding a non-maternity dress (that fits!) when you're almost 8 months pregnant is always an exciting moment. And this beauty was under $50, so it was really hard to pass up. I've been opting for loose dresses, because it's something I will be more likely to wear after the baby arrives. It's nice giving the bump some room to breathe and not feel so constricted. As I'm hitting 32 weeks, you will be seeing dresses a lot more!
