   Where do my readers live? Is it so hot that you don't want to cook, clean, get dressed, or move from in front of the AC? That's exactly how I'm feeling and I know the pregnancy contributes to a lot of that, but WOWZERS! I keep saying that it's usually not in the 90's in June here (and I know I'm wrong) but my 7 1/2 month belly makes the temperature seem more like 110. Just think though, we'll be moving to Florida next month, I know it has to be more humid and hot there than here! I'm looking at the glass half full because the beach is only going to be like 15 minutes away as opposed to the 45 minute drive now. Which by the way I'm taking complete advantage of my empty schedule tomorrow to hit up the beach and cool off in the ocean.

   From now until August my goal is to wear the least amount of clothes as possible and still look good. Granted my choices are limited right now since the movers have already taken most of our household goods, but I'm working with what I have. I'll actually try to get an outfit pic of today's maternity look so I can share it tomorrow. I did a quick round up of dresses, skirts, and a few accessories that are fab for this weather. For me this time of year is definitely not the time to wear many fitted items that are going to cling to my body and make my body temperature increase by 10

Beat the Heat of Summertime

   During summer the beach is always on my mind and as you can see, the colors above show that in greens, blues, and oranges. My favorite piece from here has to be the orange animal dress from TopShop, then I would say the denim RL skirt because it's classic & all American for the upcoming 4th of July. Also, did you see the super cute headbands? I have yet to find one that actually looks good on me...that's my new mission when I hit the American malls again in a few months.

   What are your favorite summer outfits to beat the heat?

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 …
