A Pink Christmas

Happy holidays dolls!  It's almost Christmas!!! 

I'm so excited this year, especially since tomorrow is my due date.  I can't believe I'll be meeting my little guy very soon. 

I collaborated with one of my favorite maternity shops Pink Blush Maternity.  It was my go to for affordable and trendy pieces during my pregnancy.  If your looking for a Christmas gift for a fashionable mommy to be, you will love Pink Blush!  I fell in love with this sweater poncho as soon as I saw it.  It's so comfortable but still on trend for the season. 

Hoping to get back to blogging soon after the baby is born.  I'll miss you but I promise to be back as soon as I can.  Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year!

Lace & Preggo Leggings

Top: Motherhood Maternity: Bottoms: c/o - Preggo Leggings: Handbag: Aldo

Hey dolls!  I know its been a while since my last post.  I've missed you! 

It's been pretty hectic getting things ready for the baby.  It's such an exciting time for me and my family but it's also exhausting.  I'll be 37 weeks tomorrow and I can't believe in less than a month, I'll be a mommy!  I have good days and of course days where I can't get up from the couch, but all in all baby and I are healthy and that's all that matters.

With Thanksgiving just a few days away, I've teamed up with Preggo Leggings.  Even at 9 months pregnant, feeling huge, and at times super uncomfortable we still want to look our best during the holiday season.  Preggo Leggings are super chic,  come in tons of colors, and can dress any outfit up or down.  I'm wearing the moto leggings in green with envy.  I love that they look like jeans, but are comfortable easy leggings.   The best part of these leggings is that they come with an adjustable waist.  Perfect for your entire pregnancy from your very first trimester to your last.

What are you thankful for this year?

This Thanksgiving is extra special, and I have so much to be thankful for. 
My son who I haven't met yet but I feel so blessed that God has given me this precious gift.  My husband who is so supportive, I don't know what I would do without him.  Family, friends, and of course all of my wonderful readers!   

Thank you, thank you!  HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!  


Disclosure: Preggo Leggings provided me with the leggings for review.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Shoes And Bags...Oh My!

H.a.p.p.y F.r.i.d.a.y.!!!!  

I'm so excited about this collaboration.  If there is one thing that all women have in common, it's the love we have for shoes and handbags.  They make all of us look great and you really can't complete an outfit without them.

I've collaborated with Madora which is a free app that you can download to your phone and get stylish shoes and bags at fabulous prices.  How gorgeous are these pieces that I got, and both were under $60!  The hardest part was picking out what I wanted, everything was amazing.

I loved the color of this bag and the pom cute!  The color is one I didn't have in my closet.  The booties are perfect for fall and super comfy, which is what I need at 8mo. pregnant.

Madora creates a personalized shopping experience with stylish shoes and bags.  As you take pictures and like products in the app, Madora learns your personal style and recommends other items you may like.  
If your inspired by an outfit at a store or from a magazine, Madora uses visual search technology just snap a picture of a bag or shoes and the app will suggest similar items from their library of over 30,000 available products.  Oh and did I mention that shipping and returns are always free.   

I really fell in love with this app.  Not only are the prices reasonable but it had trendy accessories with an edge.

32 weeks pregnant and still trying to look cute?!  Yup, that's me!  On a side note, I took my boots off after I took these pictures and put my flats on.  #aintnobodygottimefordat #myfeethurt #preggerproblems #lol

I'm sharing this easy fall look with the latest pieces I got from SheIn.  

The embroidery on my blouse and the details on this whimsical cross body bag are one of the many reasons I love shopping at SheIn.

Stronger Hair With Suave

I've teamed up with Suave to talk about their new 2016 line infused with biotin!  Breakage is a curly girls worst nightmare so when I read biotin, I was too excited to try this line.  Curls can be super dry and tend to break if you don't take care of them properly.  Whether my hair is wet or dry I have to be extra gentle with them and always use products for strengthening. 

Suave knows we all want healthy, strong and long hair and their newest collection infused with biotin and vitamin B7 (2 ingredients that are proven to strengthen hair by 95%) makes it easier to get those long and healthy locks we all crave.  

B7 biotin is a vitamin known for superior strengthening benefits.  The shampoo and conditioner are proven to strengthen as well as reduce breakage for thicker looking hair.

The line also offers a serum infused with all the same yummyness!  Hair serum is one of those products that we all use and LOVE!  This one is super moisturizing and makes your hair 20x stronger.  

I used it while my hair was wet as a leave-in, and then after styling and my curls felt super soft without being overly greasy.  

I will continue to use this line especially the serum.  There are so many serums out there that are double the price and don't offer the benefits of biotin B7.  

With Suave you can have beautiful hair without spending a lot of money.  Many of Suave's collections are "WAWA" meaning salon proven to "work as well as luxury brands". 

I got all 3 products from this collection at Walmart for less than $10!

If your on a budget but still want fabulous hair give one of these new 2016 Suave Professionals collections a try:

Biotin Infusion, Coconut Oil Infusion, and Coconut Milk Infusion, from your local Walmart at an affordable price, while supplies last.

$75 PinkBlush Giveaway!

Dress: c/o - Red Diamond Accent Knit Maternity Dress | Booties: GoJane | Handbag: Katherine Kwei - Kate Mini Bag

If I could wear this dress everyday, I would.  This has been the softest and comfiest dress I've worn during my pregnancy.  While on the hunt for maternity clothes, I realized it's not as fashionable as I would like it to be.  Yes, we want to be comfortable but still cute!  Right?  
A few weeks ago while shopping at a maternity store with a friend, I said to her.  Is this really what I'm supposed to wear?!  Everything just seemed so outdated and not trendy at all.  

My prayers were answered when PinkBlush reached out to me.  They design with the modern mother in mind and have designed stylish, versatile pieces that can be worn from pregnancy to motherhood.  I couldn't believe how fashionable some of their pieces were.  
I Loved the print on my dress and I saw that it was long sleeve and knit, perfect for the cooler temps to come.  Here are a few of my other favorite pieces from the site.


A floral hoodie!  What's not to love.  Comfy and feminine!


Not only do they have trendy and fashionable clothes, but they have mommy to be necessities like this gorgeous nursing robe.  

I'm running an amazing GIVEAWAY for one of my lucky readers or Instagram followers to win a $75 gift card to PinkBlush!
*Remember PinkBlush has pieces for all so you don't have to be pregnant to enter*

Head on over to my IG to enter!

Good luck!
