What I Wish I Packed in Our Hospital Bags

Wednesday, July 18, 2018

This time last year I was on day 2 of labor after being induced to give birth to McKenna. Time has really flown by since then! I only found out I was being induced a few days before, so I was beyond nervous and not at all prepared. I had hospital bags packed for the baby and I weeks earlier (I didn't even get around to packing one for my boyfriend!), but I still forgot a few things. A year later and I'm still thinking of things that would have made a great addition to our hospital bags!

Tomorrow marks one year since I was induced to give birth to McKenna. I only found out I was being induced a few days before, so I was beyond nervous and not at all prepared.

The Best Lilly Pulitzer Styles for Breastfeeding Mamas

Wednesday, June 27, 2018

It's officially summer and, if you haven't already, time to pull out all of those beautiful Lilly Pulitzer pieces in your closet! Lately, I've been obsessed with all the new prints like Mermaids Cove, Pinch Pinch, and Jet Stream. As I was browsing a Lilly BST (buy, sell, trade) group on Facebook (no doubt trying to expand my collection of items in my all-time favorite prints, Fan Sea Pants and So Snappy), a member posed a question about the best Lilly pieces for breastfeeding mamas. It was a great question that NEEDS answers since it's prime Lilly-wearing time, so I did all the dirty work and came up with 10 Lilly Pulitzer pieces that are perfect  for breastfeeding mamas. Whether you wear your Lilly to work or a (not so) quick trip to the grocery store, these are the pieces that will make nursing or pumping a little bit easier. These are not all of the styles that would work for breastfeeding or pumping, but my personal go to styles that I know have worked for me or other women.

The Best Facial Cleanser for Glowing Summer Skin

Thursday, June 21, 2018

Don't tell fall, but I'm having a love affair with summer. I love it for all the same reasons I love autumn: the weather is (usually) great and I can have fun with my fashion and beauty choices. In my personal opinion, the best summer accessory is hydrated, glowing skin. Baking in the sun to achieve the perfect summer glow is very low on my summer bucket list, so I was lucky enough to stumble across a facial cleanser that gave my skin a goddess-like glow.
