12 Week Pregnancy Update

Finally, we’re almost at the end of the first trimester. We’re a third of the way along now, and that’s both scary and exciting!  I’ve been pregnant for three months already, and we’ve already got an appointment for our second ultrasound, which comes at the halfway mark. Time feels like it’s flying! How far along? 12 …

March Goal Setting

I want to get in the habit of setting some goals for myself every month. In part, in order to keep myself accountable for the goals that I set for myself in January, but also because I know that I am much more likely to get things done if I write them down and spend …

My Everyday Makeup

While I love playing with makeup and creating fun new looks, there just isn’t always time in the morning. This is my everyday makeup look that is not only classic looking, it’s fairly simple and still pretty versatile. All of the products that I use can be thrown into my Longchamp Pouchette so that I can …

Eating Disorders & Pregnancy Weight

Eating Disorders and Pregnancy Weight

Eating disorders. This has been the hardest thing to deal with in my pregnancy so far. As a former binge eater, it was really easy to fall back into old habits. I could justify them with the idea that I’m no longer on a diet. The reality is that more than 99% of women who …

Creating a Capsule Wardrobe ~My Way

Capsule Wardrobe

I’ve been thinking about starting a capsule wardrobe, in a sense. Not the traditional way, because I’m very far from traditional, but I want to pare things down a bit, and then begin to invest in a few higher quality pieces that I can build outfits around.

Hello! I’m coming close to the end of my first trimester! Finally! I can’t really complain, my pregnancy has been really easy, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that I’m feeling tired and bloated and am excited to see if some of these symptoms go away.
