Geez, has it been a while! EVERYTHING has changed since baby girl. She has become everything... but more on that later. For now, HELLO AGAIN! I want to share some of my current obsessions with all my gals. I LOVE each and every one of these objects, and I hope that you enjoy them too.
I'm almost my pre-pregnancy weight, but those last few pounds have lodged themselves right on my tummy. Not to mention my linea nigra from pregnancy is still somewhat visible... That's ok though. These flattering one-piece swimsuits from MiracleSuit make me feel 100%. They really do firm the stomach unlike any other that I've tried. Even though I've gone swimming a grand total of ONCE this summer, I've already got 3. LOL.
There are only two complaints when it comes to these swimsuits. First, the butt area has too much coverage for my liking. And, finally, the current sizing is too big for me. Their smallest size is a 6 which needs to be tailored smaller in order to fit (which is ok by me... that's how much I love them). They made a size 4 once-upon-a-time when they partnered with Victoria Secret, but that's about it.
If you are a size extra small in Herve Leger, size 6 will likely fit perfectly. However, if you are a size xxs in Herve Leger, these suits may need to be tailored. :/ Here are a few favorite styles: here, here, and here.
Check out these ear crawlers here. These solid 14k gold earrings are timeless, young, and priced OH-SO-SO-WELL! They go beautifully with just about everything, and I recently purchased a pair for my sister after she saw them.
For those who know me, I'm a huge fan of lip products. Berrisom Oops My Color Lip Coat is my favorite new lip product. It's an extremely pigmented lip stain that lasts and lasts without even slightly drying out lips! The colors are very bright and strong, so a tiny bit goes a LONG way. They come in matte and shiny. The shiny imparts a very fresh, youthful look that I am totally obsessed with. I like this stuff so much, that I haven't used any other lip makeup in months!
One of the toughest parts of being a new parent is the lack of sleep. We sleep trained our daughter at 6 months, and with the help of this book, The SleepEasy Solution, our daughter was sleep trained within the FIRST night. She cried on and off for a grand total of 20 minutes that night. Needless to say, I'm going to get all new parents this book.
This book helped us understand what was happening to our child psychologically, emotionally, and physiologically. This way, I felt comfortable and confident in following the instructions. Plus, it has instructions not only for different age groups, but different situations such as when baby is teething or is sick.
Woah... I had a lot to say. If you're still reading, I'm flattered and impressed. LOL. To wrap it all up for now, I wanted to give a quick update on my biggest life-altering event ever. My darling little girl is growing like a weed. This little bundle surprises me every day by becoming even more beautiful, more animated, more chill, every single day. As young as she may be, she truly inspires me by being who she is. She's authentic, fearless, SO happy, and her expressions are PURE INTOXICATION. Motherhood is tough (isn't that an understatement!), but it is not without immeasurable love.
Thanks all for reading! Again, I hope you enjoyed reading about some of the things that I'm currently loving. Hope everyone is happy, healthy and enjoying life's twists and turns.
