MOM UNIFORM

jeans, tank, faux leather jacket, nike shoes Finally dusted off the blog and did a post! Lately I am all about comfort yet stylish. With my son being so young, I need to wear clothes that are practical. This is my mom uniform or “momiform”. These nikes are so light and comfy, I can wear them all day. I paired them with my favorite ripped jeans, a simple tank and my favorite faux leather jacket! Photos done by: Lianna Piccetti

SEPHORA HAUL

Clinique Pep-Start is an eye cream that is suppose to brighten and hydrate the area around your eyes. So far a really like this product.

DIY FLOWER CROWN

For the baby shower and maternity shoot, I knew I wanted to wear a flower crown. I searched etsy and found a few that I absolutely loved.

At first I was hesitant because my heart was set one this beautiful crown I had found on etsy. After thinking it through, I thought why not give it a try. I then searched the ...

SOAPS AND RELAXATION

I have always loved taking bubble baths and relaxing. I am always on the look out for the perfect soaps to help me relax and unwind. One of my best friends, Lianna Piccetti, makes some pretty amazing soaps. She makes all natural, homemade cold pressed soaps. They are absolutely beautiful! Some soaps are merely decoration, but aren’t great soaps which makes them pointless (those kind drive me crazy). Well not these soaps! My favorite ...

THE BABY SHOWER

There was a little tree with both daddy and mommy’s baby/kid pictures with an ultrasound photo of our baby boy. I painted a tree and asked ...

HOLIDAY ATTIRE

During the holidays, it’s always fun to get festive and dressed up. This dress is a great alternative to a little black dress because it’s still neutral enough to be worn with pretty much any color. It’s also has a subtle shine to it, perfect ...
