I Am Plentiful

I Am Plentiful

Almost a year ago, a sorority sister of mine posted a video on Facebook and I was just so impressed. Childless and not currently pregnant, I found her drive to help new moms was honorable. Here was a woman finding a solution to a problem and not letting road blocks stop her. I immediately messaged her and told her I wanted to help her spread the word. I do PR for social media outreach and get bags, swimsuits, and more into the hands of social influencers and I thought... "How can I help you?! I really want to help you."

Etsy Stores I Love :: BABY

Etsy Stores I Love :: BABY

Between getting married and getting pregnant, I have become obsessed with Etsy. As I was wandering the cybersphere of the Etsy rabbit hole, I decided I might as well feel productive about this habit and start sharing my favorite Etsy stores with you. I'll start with the baby items I can't get enough of and go from there...

Non Maternity Clothes that just WORK!

Non Maternity Clothes that just WORK!

95% of the time, I go into my closet and what I pull out no longer fits. I feel like "Fat guy in a little coat" daily. But on the rare occurrence that the item works, I want to kiss the designer for making my life a little easier. Such is the case with these shorts. Non-maternity shorts are a joke at this point. I'm closing in on 6 month pregnant. As my wonderful husband would say, I "look pregnant as shit" lately. But Fran Denim was designed with crossfit in mind so their stretch and comfort level is like no other.

Cooking with Cora :: Ramen Noodles

Cooking with Cora :: Ramen Noodles

This is one of my FAVORITE meals in our house. I posted it on my social media a while ago and got a ton of responses asking for the recipe. So here it is! We had to wait for the miso soup mix packets to come in so sorry for the delay! #IslandLife This is an awesome hack on Ramen Noodles. It's the perfect "use what you have" recipe too. We switch out the leafy greens and garnishes all the time.

Nursery Inspiration

Nursery Inspiration

Getting ready for baby feels like a weird dream, and getting ready for baby in another country, an island at that, is a WHOLE other ball game. We are in a version of corporate housing so storage is beyond limited and painting the walls is out. And beyond that getting furniture to Nassau is going to be hilarious. While the nesting and type A tendencies seep out of me, it will take a puzzle to find a way to get the necessities here and on time. But I am beyond up for the challenge.

Bumpin' into Fall

Bumpin' into Fall

Here we go! Baby bump in all her glory! I've always been one for a lose fitted outfit, but pregnant, I am a thousand times more comfortable in a form fitted dress. I just feel more at peace with my body pregnant. I'm that lady. You just stop being mean to yourself when you are pregnant, because every time you feel your baby kick, you are just completely amazed at what you are capable of. To think I am creating a human without actively having to think about it, is the most amazing thing in the world. My bump state went from "you're barely showing!" to people rubbing my belly within possibly 2 weeks. I'm pretty curious as to how big this girl can go. Cause I feel like max capacity can't be far away.

Splurge vs Save: Maternity Wear According to Me & My Friends.

Splurge vs Save: Maternity Wear According to Me & My Friends.

Facebook has always been a love hate relationship for me, but pregnancy has turned it into pure pure love. Nothing gets a village of women together like helping one of their own through the swamp of questions that come from pregnancy. From crib mattresses to maternity wear, I have turned to the good ole Facebook status update and been blessed with an overwhelming response.

Five Minute Face

Five Minute Face

I LOVE getting my makeup done. It's like having a massage for me. Maybe growing up in a world where I would get my makeup done on sets made me so used to it that there's something about sitting there while someone touches your face that completely relaxes me. But when it comes to doing my own makeup I get so bored. Like... when will this be over? Don't get me wrong, I can handle making up my face; it's mainly trial and error, and a lot of just rubbing stuff around until it looks right, but it works out. I'm just not going to enjoy it unless I'm also dancing to bubble gum pop music. Fake music videos while getting ready? See that's something I'm into.
