Mommy + Me in Lilly Pulitzer for Target

It’s been about a month since the Lilly Pulitzer for Target came and went in 15 minutes.  I didn’t make it to Target until about 8:30 on that Sunday morning for the release.  I was already too late.  Lucky for me I have shopaholic friends that made it to the store before me and managed to grab a few items for Peyton until I got there.  When I arrived at the store, there was a crowd of people swarming around her cart waiting to see what I didn’t want.  My FOMO, I purchased all 5 pieces she had for me.  Peyton and I don’t have pictures together, but I decided to share some of the pieces we have worn from the Lilly collection.

Maternity Style: Staying Cool

Please say a prayer for me because I don’t know how I’m going to make through the summer pregnant.  Temps have been reaching the 90’s in Atlanta and I’m already struggling to stay cool.  I usually don’t like having all of my big arms out.  I got over that real quick.  So you will see my guns out for the next couple of months.  I’ve been staying cool in this cute, non-maternity dress that I picked up from H+M.

Baby Nursery Inspiration, Tell me your fave

I wouldn’t recommend moving into a new house while your pregnant.  Not only is my house still in shambles, it’s time for me to start thinking about my baby’s nursery.  My master bedroom closet is still not unpacked (mainly because I can’t wear anything in it) and my living and dinning room is still filled with boxes.  Upside is that my baby will have her own room and I get to keep my office.  I’m trying to find some baby nursery inspiration that will work with Peyton’s old dark brown/black crib and dresser.  I wouldn’t mind having a white crib this time around but it’s not in the budget.  Check out the rooms that I have found on Pinterest and let me know which one is your favorite.

New Hair: Curkalon Crochet Braids + Video of Install

I’m so excited to share details on my new hair do!  I’ve never had crochet braid before.  The crochet technique is on fire right now!  It’s an easy and cheaper alternative to weave for a protective style.  The key to an awesome crochet braid look is having the right hair.  I’m wearing the new Curlkalon hair that comes pre-curled and ready to go!  In the past, ladies used to curl the synthetic buy rolling the hair and dipping it in boiling hot water.  That is so NOT safe!  I remember having some hot water spilled on me as a child when some one was trying to curl the ends of my braids with hot water.  You can say goodbye to the hot water curls and save a TON of time by using Curlkalon.  Check out my video below to learn more about Curlkalon hair and see how it’s installed.  Don’t mind my puffy prego face in the video.
