My go-to favorite watch of all time. The Daniel Wellington petite bondi! It can dress up or down any outfit and is super chic. Use “amandalb15” for 15% off any Daniel Wellington watch of your choice! Perfect gifts for both men and women too.
This book is amazingggg. I love how profound Rachel Hollis speaks and her words of wisdom! Great gift for a gal pal, mom, sister, aunt…basically any female!
My lip gloss love would be all things Nars. It is beautiful without looking tacky or over the top. Adds the perfect sheen to a matte lipstick for a date night or girls night out. Also price point is perfect. ($22)
Who doesn’t need a hat that matches everything!? This one is transitional through the seasons making it worth every penny. I love the classic camel color but it does come in black as well!
A little bucket bag that doesn’t break the bank and looks super cute. This is another transitional piece and would look very cute for spring too. Multiple colors with this piece as well. ($49.00)
A shimmer palette made for a girl who wants to glow. I think this can really be all one needs with some mascara and a good lipgloss/lipstick. Perfect for everyday looks as well as dressy nights. I love the way my cheeks pop with this stuff. (Use Wikibuy and snag it for $48)
Leopard is a neutral repeat after me. Thus these bad boys go with everything making them another favorite of mine. I love flats especially now that I have a busy 4 month old on my hands. Aint got time for dressy pumps these days when I need to run a few errands but don’t want to wear workout gear. ($89)
If you want your house to smell lush this candle is a must have. Not to mention candles make the best gifts for basically anyone (teachers, friends, neighbors..etc.). These also last a long time which is always a bonus. ($9)
An Edie update coming soon of our baby girl and all her activities since birth (she is now 3 months old!) Thank you all for following along on our parenthood journey and I can’t wait to share a couple posts about postpartum and all things Edie! In the meantime here is a recipe we have been loving for these cold nights when we just need something savory and comforting.
Note I always buy a rotisserie chicken (shred it) and add it to this stew as well
You can also add whatever types of veggies your family enjoys! With this recipe we usually add different beans and some extra corn! XOXO!
I have been a little MIA on the blog lately so I do apologize!! We have been nesting like crazy as I am 33 weeks already! I planned to do a pregnancy update post and hopefully will get to that tomorrow but for now I am feeling good just a bit uncomfortable. I am not a gal who just has adored being pregnant (as some do) so I am very ready for Edie's due date and her daddy and I can't wait to have her in our arms and out of my womb haha! I am sleeping wonderfully still and cravings have been about the same. Gimme all the mexican food and chocolate!! The sweet tooth I have tried to limit and only eat in moderation which has helped slow the weight gain. I actually stopped ginger ale too with all the sugar it has and ended up loosing a good 7 to 10 lbs of unneeded weight gain in face and legs. My feet have been a bit swollen but summer heat will do that so I guess it is what it is! I am truly so thankful to still be growing a healthy baby and this pregnancy has had no complications thus far for which we are grateful. I will do a more in depth post tomorrow about third trimester and how it all has played out.
Did want to share some photos we had taken at the beginning of third trimester and we do have one more session so Ill be sure to share those as well. My friend Savannah with Savannah Stahl Photography took these and she did amazing. I love the moody feel these give and how special it was for my husband and I to really embrace each other as this has been a remarkable journey to say the least. Savannah has an Instagram and Facebook if you would like to use her--I can't speak highly enough of how amazing she is at what she does.
