Seeing Triplets...

Midi skirts are a trend that I'm absolutely loving. They are versatile in the fact that almost anyone can wear them and it's so easy to style several different ways. I picked up one at H&M for only 7 euros...pleated, hot pink, black waistband, adorable. So I picked one that was pretty similar to mine and styled it 3 different ways.

Midi Skirt




1st Look- Definitely a night time look that's very sexy but still quite ladylike. If you don't have a bralette then go for that black lace lingerie in the drawer, that's what I did. Pair it with some sequin pumps and a cute clutch with a pop of color and viola. I like the mix of all the different textures here plus we get a little of the pink/red ever so popular color combo. 

2nd Look- Pastels were drowning the Spring 2012 runways and gave me that frilly, romantic, girly feeling! So for this look I wanted to concentrate on that color palette but not entirely. So if you're not ready to take on the head to toe color, no worries, the bird print top balances it all out. Feeling froggy? Trade in the white blouse for a pale yellow, light purplish gray, or other color. And I actually didn't even notice this until just now, but there's also a gold bird on the handbag.

3rd Look- This is a casual weekend or running errands look (that I love). I kept the shirt simple and added fun accessories like the leopard print DVF hat and the cream oxfords. Throw some gold or blush gold tone jewelry on and you're ready to look the world in the eyes. 

Which look is your fave?  

PS- I think Spring has sprung in my parts if Italy. The past few days have been sunny, no jackets required for the warmer weather, and I'm hearing the birds chirp away in the mornings...it is love!

Post Baby Body...Planning Ahead

I'm over half way to meeting our new little princess! At this stage in the pregnancy I'm also thinking about anything and everything having to do with a 3rd child and all the changes that will be happening in my house. Quite honestly, I'm freaking out a little. Of course I'm doing all the typical things parents do when prepping for a new arrival, but I've also decided to take the time to focus on myself while I still can. 

   27 weeks pregnant, which means in 13 weeks or less I will be meeting our new tiny princess. One of the things women typically worry about with pregnancy is the ever so dreaded weight gain that comes with the territory. I can happily say that I've done extremely well with this pregnancy and so far only had a 12 pound gain. But as we all know, the 3rd trimester tends to have the largest weight gain. Since I probably won't have a ton of extra down time once the baby arrives, I've decided to go ahead and start planning to lose the ba…

IPSY: December Glam Bag Review

I will be reviewing the products I received in my December Ipsy bag since I've had the chance to test them out for about a month now. If you don't know already here's the spill. Instead of doing an "unboxing" type of post, I review the products over the course of a month and then let you know what I thought and all the product details. If you didn't see my November bag review you can check it out HERE.

   This post is a bit late, but we'll be getting back on track for February.
   Here's what I received in my December Ipsy Bag...



1). December's Glam Bag- Not going to lie, this month's bag was a disappointment for sure; it felt cheap, was flimsy, and the zipper was in a weird spot. I will probably end up giving it to my daughter to keep her play makeup in.

2). NYX Butter Lip Balm in Red Velvet- Retails for $4.00 (this is the full size)
   I'm not a big tinted lip balm fan, I'd rather just wear a lipstick. This is the first NYX balm I…

Warming The Soul

The weather has been viciously cold in many parts of the United States this winter. If you are anything like me, that means hot delicious soup to warm the mind, body and soul. Soup is a comfort food staple and I feel like people are more drawn to it between October and March, that's especially true for my family. With Florida weather it's just almost too hot for soup any other time of year unless is storming and chilly out.

   Pinterest is my absolute favorite place to find new recipes, so I wanted to share a few of my soup pins with you. I've made all of these except one, which I'll make a note of below, and they've all turned out delicious.


1). Crab & Corn Chowder- This soup is absolutely delicious and hearty. For me, it was something different and unexpected. Growing up in Kentucky we didn't make soups like this, mom always served chili, potato, or broccoli cheddar soup because those are the southern specialties. If you make any of these soups, please …
