One of my favorite blogger gal pals, Rachel, was in town recently and I was so excited to get to snag an afternoon with her. It’s so fun when you’ve built a friendship online, and then get to carry that friendship out into real life. One of my all time favorite photographers, Jessi, is a good friend of mine and photographed Rachel’s wedding (what a small world!), and hung out with us for the afternoon too!
Rachel is a super hustler, and such an inspiration to me as I watch her grow her business and create beautiful content. When she reached out to connect and collaborate, I couldn’t say yes fast enough!
Running a small online business can be many things: lonely, overwhelming, scary, stressful. That’s why it’s so so important to find those around you who understand the business side of things, support you, inspire you, and cheer you on. Plus, there’s so much you can learn from each other!
I’m always looking for comfortable clothing (for all the toddler chasing I do these days), but that’s also cute and makes me feel put together. This PinkBlush sweatshirt is so cozy, and perfect for your everyday casual maternity style. It has quickly become a staple in my wardrobe! I love to throw it on with a pair of jeans and tennis shoes. It’s perfect for errands, working out, or a coffee and flower run. On extra chilly days (which we’ve had here lately), it’s light enough to fit under a heavier coat. It’s literally one of the most versatile pieces and I highly recommend it if you’re expecting (or not! – they have a nonmaternity version too).
This is a blog post I’ve wanted to write for a long time! And I’m finally sitting down to do it. Piper’s birth was one of the hardest, but best days of my life. It was truly a life changing experience, and I am so excited and feel so lucky to get to go through the process again. We opted for a natural birth, meaning no epidural or interventions (unless medically necessary), and had the most wonderful experience. This method is not for everyone, and I know many people have zero interest in this type of delivery. But if you’ve been toying with the idea or are interested in a natural birth, then keep reading!
I get asked about my lashes a bit, so I thought I’d dedicate a whole post to my favorite mascaras and why I love them (plus a few other tips and tricks). I’ve never used lash extentions or lash serums (although I’d like to try them both). I’ve listed below which mascaras I rotate through, and why I love them!
