(top from Alicia DiMichele’s Boutique, jeans are Levi’s) Mama’s Favorites Hi, mama bears! Are you searching for some inspiration for your closet, home, and lifestyle? I’m always here for you, duh. I may be a busy mama, but I always find time to take care of myself physically and emotionally (clothing, hair, makeup, yoga). If you’re like me and enjoy wearing what you love, doing what makes you happy, and filling your life with beauty, […]

A Letter to My Baby

  Any woman who has carried a child (or multiple children) for nine months knows that you truly become a mom the second the strip reads positive, but the moment you give birth to your baby, “mom” becomes such an honored title and a full-time job. Your life changes forever and all at once. I am 37 weeks pregnant (9 months) and will soon be in the hospital, feeling every emotion possible (I’m so scared and […]

Feeling Twenty Three

Today is my twenty-third birthday and as I do each year, I am looking forward to new beginnings and adventures. I feel as though I turned twenty-two yesterday, but as we all know, time goes by so incredibly fast. I never thought that on my twenty-third birthday I wouldn’t be swallowing down an expensive martini, or that I’d be celebrating not only my birthday but 35 weeks of pregnancy. Life has a way of unfolding […]

Life After Sexual Assault

I’ve been wanting to write about this ever since the Kavanaugh case began, and I’ve always been very open and honest about what happened to me, years back, but I’ve also been trying to focus on only positive feelings during my pregnancy. For those who don’t know, I was raped when I was sixteen years old, by a guy who was one of my closest friends (at the time). He knew me as a person, was close […]

  Saturday night, September 15, my best friend asked me to marry him and I said, YES! I am engaged and beyond thankful for him, baby Greyson, and our beautiful life together. Sorry, but this gal is officially off the market! Andrew and I met out of the blue and he instantly changed my life, in more ways than one. He sweeps me off my feet everyday, but Saturday night he took my breath away […]

A Moment of Reflection

A Note to the World on 9/11 On this grey, infamous day in American history we remember those we lost (rest peacefully), and honor those who continue to fight for us and our freedom; we will never forget the pain we endured on 9/11. It was a bright, sunny day in New York City that began with normal conversations and coffee, but ended with an altered world and incredible loss. I was almost six years old […]

Surviving High School

I know that for many returning high school students fall can be a stressful and scary period of time, because it’s filled with unknown school issues, bullying, familiar faces, secrets from the summer vacation, and insane expectations. You want to look and do your absolute best, especially the older you get. Keep your head up and your dreams close. I’m here to guide you through the rough days and laugh with you on the bright ones. First off, take a […]

I’m Not Like a Regular Mom…I’m a Cool Mom

Santa isn’t the only one coming to town this December… I’m excited to announce to those who don’t follow me on social media that I’m pregnant with a baby boy named Greyson, and I’m due in December! Pregnancy is exciting, terrifying, and beautiful, but everyone experiences something different. A common mistake women make during pregnancy is comparing themselves and the natural changes of motherhood to other women and the changes they go through. Just as […]

Summer is winding down and with this hot season came new trends, wants, and needs. I am a fall/winter gal, but I appreciate the beauty around me, always. Whether you worked all summer, while taking occasional beach trips, or you were sweating it out at the shore all season, summer is filled with style cravings. I have current obsessions, favorite shopping destinations, and perfect dining spots that I’d love to share with you. Are you ready to shop and sip […]

You

I walked by you in my ripped jeans and cowgirl boots and that was all it took for everything to change. I could feel your eyes on me, but I pretended not to notice. I flipped my long hair over my shoulder and kept walking, but I couldn’t ignore you. You were something different and my heart knew before the rest of me that it was you. It’s crazy how I went from not knowing […]
