Ending 2019

Hey everyone! How are we feeling about this year and decade ending?! Personally nothing feels different but I love any excuse to start new and fresh. Make some new goals and plan out an amazing 2020! What are some of your goals? I plan on incorporating more fashion into my makeup posts. Taking more pictures and doing my makeup more and making it more interesting. Plan the best first birthday for my baby girl! Get back into fitness more. Write more workouts for y’all. These are just a few ideas that come to mind when thinking about starting fresh in January.

Remember that you don’t need to wait til January 1st to start healthy habits or change things in your life. Jan 1st is just an ordinary day that we put too much focus on. So start your goals or resolutions today! I already have by starting to workout. I have a beach trip with my husband planned for February so I’m working on getting ready now! I’ll post my at home workout later for y’all!!

Thanksgiving Fashion

Good morning everyone! Who is ready for the holidays? I am soo beyond ready! Many of you know we have been renovating our house a bit and it’s starting to come together. Hopefully a large chunk will be done before Thanksgiving.

I love the holidays! I love cooking and decorating, getting dressed up and hosting people over. This is one of the first holiday times that we aren’t traveling and we are doing everything in our own home!

So I wanted to share this super cute outfit and makeup look for this holiday season. I got this cute, festive vest from amazon! Great find. I’m obsessed with my over the knee boots I got from kohl’s. And jeans and blue top are both from lucky brand. I threw a slight wave in my hair with my curling wand. Lipstick is from dose of colors. A red lip is always a great choice. Truly my favorite accessory. Eyes are morphe eye shadows and lashaholic lashes! So simple and yet classic and beautiful!

What do y’all think about this holiday look I put together? I will continue to put some more of these together for y’all! And I always post makeup looks on instagram! So follow me on there!

Home Decor!

As some of you know we recently moved and bought a new home. Well new to us, but the house looks very 70’s in some rooms so this post will be in parts. Our yard is simply beautiful but the inside of the house needed some TLC.

While my husband was away for work my mother came down and helped me decorate the house and help with the kids. So grateful because my kids can be quite the handful when they choose. Isn’t that how it always is? Be crazy when dad is away.. anyways I wanted to share some fun wall art pieces that I picked up and put up around the house.

yes some of my walls are not the greatest of color but that will be another times project. I will share more complete images once I have the house together completely! But I love this little welcome sign I place right in the front entry way. You will see most pieces I have picked up will be wood and galvanized metal and tin. I love the rustic, farmhouse feel. This piece I absolutely love. I have tons of mason jars and even though it says it’s a candle holder I see flowers in these jars. What do you think?I got both of these tin/wood signs and placed each appropriately in the laundry and bathroom. I love them! They are pretty big so they add to the space without needing more or leaving too much blank space. Each one of these came from TJMaxx. I am all about a great deal and where I live, TJMaxx is pretty much the only store! They were all such a great deal how could I pass them up? Let me share a couple more items I grabbed!I am all about these metal mugs. I literally went through and pretty much got rid of all other coffee cups. Plus these can’t break and I am a total klutz. I freaked out when I saw the store had more and had to bring them home. The littlest things make me so happy!I also picked up this little crate to sit in the bathroom. The kids bathroom is pretty small so I use this to keep the space looking clean and oraganized. I keep the kids washcloths in it as well as wet wipes, extra toilet paper, q-tips..etc. This last picture shows my dining table. I picked up the runner at TJMaxx but the salt and pepper shakers, metal pitcher, and floral arrangement all came from Walmart. I feel Walmart really stepping up lately with what they offer. Everything is so cute, super budget friendly and fits my farmhouse theme perfectly!

I can’t wait to share more as I complete DIYs and other home projects and as we get renovations done! So stay tuned!

Hospital packing list baby #2!

Hello friends! I know I have written this before with my first baby but I wanted to write an updated one for the second time around. Keep in mind it is always a good idea to ask your doctor what you need to pack. My hospital is really awesome and provides almost everything needed, I’m sure yours does too. No need to over pack!

  • Alright so you obviously need a duffle bag or small suitcase to pack everything into! I use this one I have from Lucky Brand.
  • In my bag I have packed a cute plaid shirt to go home in. It is a maternity shirt that buttons. I wanted to make sure I had something that fit, made me feel put together, and was breastfeeding friendly. You probably won’t leave the hospital looking like you did before you ever got pregnant so plan for a pooch still.
  • Granny panties. Really you just need some full coverage, comfy panties that can hold large pads during recovery.
    I picked up this belly binder from amazon. Only 13$! This will help shrink your uterus and get your tummy back to its original size. As soon as I am in recovery I plan on putting this bad boy on!
    A comfy nursing bra that can be slept in. I found mine on amazon for so cheap!
    This time I packed some tall compression socks because last time my feet, ankles, and legs got soo swollen. It was very painful and looked horrendous. And hospitals are cold so better to be prepared lol.
  • I packed a set of pajamas that button up so I can be comfy in my own clothes after the IV’s come out and I get that first shower! Plus the buttons allow easy access for breastfeeding.
  • Lastly for myself I packed toiletries: toothbrush and toothpaste, shampoo and conditioner, hairbrush, skincare, light makeup, hair ties and my glasses.

Your hospital should provide giant pads, pain relief, ice packs, sitz bath, dermoplast, witch hazel pads… mine did, I literally didn’t need to bring anything, they even had mesh undies to wear. Some people hate them but I am all for not ruining anything of my own, use the hospitals! My hospital also fed me really well and the food was good so there was no need for bringing snacks!

For Baby:

  • I packed 2 outfits- one in newborn size and one 0-3m. Along with the outfits I packed matching bows. I know there will be lots of pictures!
  • I packed a swaddle for pictures and a thin muslin blanket for coming home.
  • Car seat

Other than clothes and a car seat you really have no need to pack other items. The hospital will have diapers, wipes, baby wash and lotion, anything you will need. And you get to bring all the extras home!

Extras:

  • Phone and phone charger
  • Camera
  • Donut pillow- giving birth makes it feel like your tail bone is broken. At least it did for me. I got a pillow specially for my poor bum.
  • Pillow- with your own unique case
  • Clothes for dad- if your husband or SO is anything like mine, make him pack his own bag! My husband over packs so much and it drives me crazy!

You can always keep some extras in your car if you really think you’ll need them.
