Mom Approved Jeans

Today’s post is one that I hope all mommas get something from. We all know once you have a baby there is sometimes a few extra rolls on your stomach and I know I had a few ( slowly working on getting rid of mine ). So today I wanted to share some fashionable high-waisted jeans. I know that I had to order a few of them after the baby was born and I love them! Do any of you mommas out there recommend a pair that you love?

Fall Around the Home

Fall. I just can’t describe how much I love this season, especially October. I think it is the fact that I get all my decorations out to put up around the house. I think the fact that this year I have a little one at home makes the time even more special. In a previous post I shared some decor that I am loving and would like to get. I did end up purchasing a few pieces and I would love to share them with you all.

Motherhood

Self Soothing

I have to start off and say that life with a 2 month old is exhausting but fun all at the same time. But when the crying starts so does the stress. I can’t help but wonder why can’t I soothe her at times.  I’ll try about anything. I’ll try the shushing method, swinging, sucking, and the swaddling ( which this one does work at times ). When all of this doesn’t work I resort to a method most parents may not like and that is letting her just cry it out. Of course I check the monitor to see if she’s ok and all but she does need to learn to self soothe. This method won’t only come in handy at night but it does when she wakes up from a nap. That way she can try to fall back asleep. Sometimes this works and sometimes it doesn’t, but self soothing is something that I would like for her to learn to do. Are there any other moms out there that do this?

Baby Girl Dresses

One of the best things about having a baby girl are all the dresses I get to purchase for her. I must look online at least a few times a week ordering new dresses for her. Of course right now she is too young to appreciate all this but when she is older I am sure she will. She is her mother’s daughter after all.

Makeup Favorites

I could spend forever in any makeup store. I’m not sure if it’s because I love discovering new products, or because I just can’t choose something that I want. Anyway, I have to say that purchasing a lot of new makeup gives me a feeling of satisfaction. I just love the freshness of it all. Today I’m sharing my makeup favorites for eyes, brows and face that I totally recommend.

NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint: Love this product so much. You get just enough coverage with an SPF 30 that protects your skin.

Benefit Gimme Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel: I love how this makes my brows look. I don’t even need to fill them in! Also, it is water resistant which is a plus in my book.

NARS Eyeliner: The minute I tried this I was immediately I was obsessed.  I’ve been wearing this almost everyday and it really makes my eyes pop. I either add it to the top or the bottom, sometimes both at the same time.

Trish McEvoy Correct and Brighten Pen: As a new mom this is a must have for me! It definitely covers those dark circles and brightens my under eyes better than any product has before.

Fall Decor I’m Loving

Fall is officially here! Now all we need are some of the Fall temps. I absolutely love decorating my house this season. I just love all the pumpkins, the pumpkin smells, leaves, and we can’t forget the Pumpkin Spice Latte. Today, I am sharing a few items that are perfect Fall home decor. FYI, the Nest candle is my favorite.

Family + Newborn Shoot

This little has brought so much joy to our lives. I never knew you could love like this and it is such an amazing feeling. We are crazy about this girl.

We took these when Lexi was a month old since she spent the first month in the NICU. She did well during the shoot except for a brief moment when she got tired. I tried to get our dog Pluto in the shoot but he would just not have it. Maybe we will have better luck on our next shoot.

I hope you enjoy the pictures!
