Well, let me first start out by saying, HOLY MOLY, does your body go through A LOT having a child. I mean, surprise, surprise, you’re birthing a human, BUT like, OMG!! Until you go through it, ya just don’t really know. AND why don’t people talk about it more?!! On this post I’m going to give you all the details about the things I did to recover, including my midwife, Erin’s, care. As y’all know I’ve been very transparent about my pregnancy and birth. My hope is to HELP y’all find what works for you during your journey.
Hi babes! Y’all have been asking me about what I eat on reg, and today I’m happy to share my food journey and guide with you. I want to point out, this is my path and I understand everyone is different. It’s what works for me! SO… what do I actually eat, how and why?
I’ve shared on my Instagram Story that I was overweight the majority of my childhood. I was very uncomfortable in my body and unhappy with what I saw in the mirror. From about 12 to 28 years old I struggled with not only my weight but how I viewed food; it controlled me. And yes, I’ve tried just about every diet out there.
Hi guys! Today I’m sharing my first healthy recipe of the year and surprise, surprise, it’s great for new moms! These balls are quick and easy to make. Perfect to grab on the go! And no, you don’t need to be breastfeeding to eat these. They are also a great healthy snack and perfect after a workout. Trust me, Luke is obsessed! He steals mine all the time 😉
I can’t believe it’s been 5 weeks since my sweet baby boy made his entrance into the world. I’ve been taking the new mom thing an hour at a time. It’s overwhelming, beautiful and spiritual all in the same moment. More about this in my Postpartum Mom Care and 4th Trimester post coming soon. Overall we are healthy and feeling good. I want to take a moment and thank y’all for the sweet messages I’ve received on Instagram. I appreciate all of the love, support and community of moms that have reached out.
Let me first start out by saying, my birth was the most intense, empowering and loving experience I’ve ever gone through. As I’ve mentioned many times before, what I decided to do, worked for me. Everyone is different and should follow their own path. Through blogging about this, my intention is to be transparent with my journey, in the hopes of helping you all in yours.
Hey there, guys!! Happy new year! I wanted to start off 2020 with a little look back at my 2019 best sellers from home, fashion and beauty. Below I rounded up my top 15 from each category. I’m not surprised A LOT of the items y’all loved where cozy related – loungewear, slippers, self-car beauty, rugs and of course, PILLOWS!!
Hi babes! Can you believe it’s almost 2020?! What better way to ring in the new year than with a festive bubbly bar?! If you love to entertain in your home, this post is for you!
I LOVE bar carts and creating moments in my house for different seasons, holidays and everyday entertaining. I just received a new black cart thanks to Serena and Lily. This bar is the perfect size, fitting on a small wall in my great room. I’m loving the color and natural texture as it fits with my modern farmhouse style. Shop this cart and more here!
Hey guys! Today I’m talking all about one of my fave baby brands a la Walmart. Since becoming a new mom, I’ve learned SO much about products for little ones. For me, it is important to not only have quality, easy access clothing for your babe, but also great textiles for them to sleep on: sheets, blankets and swaddles. Well, look no further… I’ve found it in Little Star Organic. As many of you know I have been a Walmart Home Ambassador this year, and now I’m happy to say, I’ve partnered with them to talk about my fave BABY goodies!
Hi guys! I’m writing this as I’m sitting next to my new baby!!! I can’t believe FORD is here… well, I guess I can as I was pregnant 40+ weeks! LOL I will be sharing his birth story soon. If you are a newly pregnant mama, make sure to check out my two previous pregnancy posts, first trimester and second trimester.
Today I want to discuss my journey through the last 3 months of my pregnancy. Please note, some of the things I did will be redundant from my second trimester post: i.e. supplements.
