Recent Empties



Happy Monday friends! 


I wanted to share some cruelty free beauty products that I have recently finished up using. There were quite a few things over the past month that I was not really impressed with, but that's part of the game isn't it? Trail and error. Of course, just because something didn't work for me, doesn't mean it will be that way for everyone! I definitely believe in trying things out for yourself ;)

Newborn Must Haves



Baby Must Haves

I'm sitting here in the living room with a Fixer Upper marathon on the TV and my little 2 week old in my lap, cooing in her sleep. I thought...just the perfect time to put together a little post about all the the baby items that have been so useful and essential for us since Marin arrived!

I tried to do a lot of research when buying things while pregnant because I really didn't want to waste money. I also knew that there would be things that came up that we needed after she arrived...so even though we were pretty well prepared, we did end up having to run out and grab a few things after her birth too.

Keep reading for a list of my top ten newborn items that have been invaluable over the past couple weeks!

Recent Fashion Favorites


Hello friends! 

Sorry it has been awhile since my last post...new mommy life and my little Marin are taking up quite a bit of my time, but I wouldn't have it any other way. We are living in the newborn bubble and finding our new normal one day at at time.

Now that summer is upon us and I am no longer confined to maternity clothes, I've wanted to revamp my wardrobe a bit. I thought I would share some pieces that I've ordered recently (because who has time to actually go to stores and shop? lol). Still waiting on most of them to be delivered, but I'm hopeful they fit and excited to start mixing and matching to create some fun new outfits for these warmer months!

Marin Jane




Our family welcomed little miss Marin Jane on Thursday, May 18th at 9:05 pm.

She finally arrived after 29 hours of (induced) labor, weighing 7 lbs and 13 oz, measuring 21 inches long...and looking just like her Daddy! 

Everyone is home, healthy, and so very happy <3

The Swimsuit Struggle


As a new mom, one thing I haven't really been looking forward to this upcoming summer is bathing suit season. After 39 weeks of pregnancy, I still have some work to do to get back into pre-pregnancy shape. However, I've found out that there are some great options out there for swimsuits that are mommy-friendly and still super cute and fashionable!
