Leo’s Birth Story + NICU Stay

Leo’s Birth Story + NICU Stay

I've been wanting to share Leo's birth story and our experience in the NICU for the past few weeks, but have hardly had time to sit down and actually write. I knew this would be a long post before I began typing it out, and I knew that it would be somewhat hard to write. [...]

Pregnancy Style: From Bump to Beyond with PinkBlush

Pregnancy Style: From Bump to Beyond with PinkBlush

Throughout the majority of my pregnancy, I was reluctant to buy maternity clothes because the reality is that most maternity clothes just aren't cute. While I couldn't control the changes happening to my body during pregnancy, the one thing I could still control was my personal style. I continued to wear regular-sized clothing during my [...]

Pregnancy Style: Maternity Swimsuits from ASOS

Pregnancy Style: Maternity Swimsuits from ASOS

I've always loved ASOS, but it's never been one of my top go-to places to shop until pregnancy. Now that I've been shopping there, I'm not sure why I didn't shop at ASOS more frequently prior to being pregnant because they have such a wide variety of options for every occasion and for the most [...]
