Maternity Pictures 


So where to begin!? I am absolutely IN LOVE with how our pictures turned out! I could not be happier. Thank you so much Elly Bean Photography for capturing these moments! You seriously work magic!

For anyone looking for a maternity photographer I HIGHLY recommend her! She is so kind and personable! I am a slightly awkward person when it comes to having pictures taken and she made everything feel so easy and natural. Elly was also very helpful in guiding us on what to do or what looks great, she even kept in mind that I had a “favorite” side for pictures! I know silly but little details like that always make me feel great because I feel confident in certain camera angles.

We can’t wait to use her again for Roman’s newborn pictures! I’m so excited to see what she will come up with! Thank you again so much Elly!!!

Xoxo,

Fourth of July Outfit Inspiration

fourth collage-2

So I always look forward to the Fourth of July because we get to spend time with our family and friends which is always fun because we get to see people we don’t always get to see! Plus with baby almost here it’s nice to just get out!

Now I am someone who always likes to look cute when celebrating any holiday but I like to do it in a cute subtle way. Normally I would find a cute red white or blue swimsuit with a fun tank and shorts or cover up but since I am so pregnant right now I am limited on cute clothes and swimsuits. However pregnant or not I thought these items would be great to tie into your Fourth of July wardrobe plus, who doesn’t love a good red lip?!

#1 Red Maxi Dress

#2 Topshop Gold Sandals

#3 Red Tie Headband

#4 USA Sweater

#5 Gold Choker

#6 Bauble Bar Earrings

#7 Cut-off Denim Shorts

#8 MAC Cherry Lip Liner

#9 MAC Ruby Woo Lipstick

#10 Quay Sunnies

I Hope you all have a wonderful Fourth!

Xoxo,

Danielle

30 Week Bump Date

So this week I hit the 30 Week mark! 3rd trimester exhaustion has definitely started to kick in and I’ve heard it only gets worse! As of lately I really haven’t been getting too much sleep😞Heart burn has been a real issue these last couple weeks and it hits me really bad at night. I’ve talked with my doctor and he has just re-recommended trying to eat small meals and not eating past 6pm since mine has been so awful. I have also struggled with insomnia something fierce this last week, I just can’t seem to get comfortable at all (heart burn not helping of course), So he has reccomended trying some Tylenol PM. To top off this wonderful last week I also woke up covered in hives last night! Now they did go away with a little bit of Benadryl so I’m hoping it was just a one time thing. Maybe a little stress of baby coming and feeling like I still have so much to do could have brought it on?! Aside from heart burn, little sleep, and hives though Week 30 really hasn’t been too bad! Little man has been VERY active (I love feeling his little movements)! I honestly cherish every little moment and movement that I can because I know there’s not too much longer before I’ll be missing those kicks and hiccups. However, I would be lying if I said that I also can’t wait to meet him and finally see his sweet little face! This Sunday is our baby shower so I will be posting lots of pictures and a blog all about that soon!


Xoxo,

What’s In My Bag

So after my last post I wanted to go ahead and show you just how much I was able to comfortably fit in my purse. Keep in mind I still have TON of room to put much more in if I wanted to. I will link all products below.

#1 BODY CREAM
Now I’m not only a sucker for things that smell good but I’m also a sucker for Bath & Body Works Body Creams! There is nothing worse than being out and about and having dry hands, arms, legs etc. especially after washing your hands in a public restroom! Now I know I’m not the only one who feels like public restroom soap just strips your skin of all moisture and leaves you dry. Its nice to keep something on you that not only smells yummy but keeps your skin hydrated!

#2 THE LIP SLIP BY SARA HAPP
Okay so if you have not tried this product yet it is a MUST! I always keep chapstick on me but this is a total game changer! This product leaves your lips plump, smooth, and soft with just the tiniest tint of color!

#3 LILLY PULITZER YEARLY AGENDA
ORGINIZATION, ORGINIZATION, ORGINIZATION! I can’t say it enough! There is nothing more important to me than staying organized. As a mom, working full time, baby on the way, and makeup artist my life needs to stay organized! I love this planner because it has a monthly agenda map, and then its also broken down by each day with enough room to plan out anything you need to do. I am also a list person so this was another thing that made me gravitate towards this planner, it has multiple pages for notes (unlike some that only have one or two pages) and it also has “List” section.

#4 PERFUME
This is pretty self explanatory I think. I personally like to keep perfume in my purse to touch up anytime I feel like I’m needing a refresher wether it be after leaving a restaurant and not wanting to take the food smell with me, or just wanting to reapply after wearing it for several hours. Perfume is personal but these two are personally some of my favorite scents, light, fresh, with a little musk!

#5 SUNGLASSES
Protect your eyes, everyone needs a good pair of sunnies! These are one of my favorite pairs from Quay Australia, I do own several ones from them and they are not only priced well but are made extremely sturdy!

#6 MAKEUP BAG
I feel like makeup bags are a must if you are able to fit them in your purse. They hold all your products you need to touch up with through out the day, plus are great for storing any medications as well that you may not want just laying at the bottom of your bag. I personally like to keep my inhaler, lash case when I wear lashes in case I want to take them off and store them, and a phone charger in my makeup bag with my take along products of choice. Makeup bags are great for keeping your purse clutter free!

I hope you all liked this little Whats In My Bag blog and I hope it gave you some new ideas for products to try and things to keep with you! I also hope this gives you a little bit of an idea on not only how much I was able to store in my new bag, but also how to store things when you have little storage! ❤

XOXO,

MICHAEL KORS Bag Review

May 4th, 2017

Bag Review Title Pic

So as some of you may know this past weekend I went on a Bachelorette Party to Denver, CO. Now I’m not normally a big bag person, I usually swing for the smaller “sling” style bags because I like to be hands free. However though, as many of you may know I am 28 weeks pregnant so I figured it was not only time for a new purse because mine was falling apart but because I needed to get used to carrying something bigger around with baby boy on his way since a diaper bag isn’t exactly small. Now I’m not normally one to splurge on a bag, and to be honest I have had my eyes on this bag  but I wanted to get a feel for a bigger bag first before splurging. If I do decide to go with the LV I will definitely write a review though since I plan on using it more as a baby bag rather than an actual purse. Back to this bag though, I must say I was VERY satisfied with my purchase! The Mercer Tote is large and can carry many items comfortably as it does come with a shoulder strap so I get the best of both worlds, hands free and more storage. I really wanted to put my new purse to the test this past weekend and see just how much I could carry around comfortably while we did “Bachelorette” things. I will mention this bag does not have many pockets so if you are a someone who likes lots of “storage” in their purse this may not be the one for you but, storage is not a big deal for me. I was able to fit my planner comfortably at the bottom, along with my travel makeup bag, large wallet,  mini Amazing Grace perfume, iPhone charger, prenatal vitamins, and Quay Australia Sunglasses with plenty of room left to add anything else I could have wanted to. While I do understand this purchase would be a splurge for some I would highly recommend this bag, easy 9/10. I would give it a 10/10 if it had more pockets but I know while its not important for me it may be for some. The leather and handles are well made and sturdy, and it holds its shape well. If you would like a more in depth blog about everything I keep in my bag (wether it is to see the size of the items I fit in there or curious to see what I like to keep in my bag) please comment down below. 

You can buy this bag Here as well as browse the inside to see what I’m talking about storage wise.
