It’s Important to Be Nice: Be Kind Outfit

This post contains affiliate links.

I remember my mom teaching me from a very young age, just how important it was to be nice. I vividly remember my mom taking a friend home from a play date because I wasn’t treating my friend nicely. I remember standing in the garage, screaming in tears as I watched my mom drive away to take my friend home. I will never forget that moment, but it taught me a very valuable lesson that day. It is important to be nice!

Be kind shirt from Cents of Style on www.girllovesglam.com

I absolutely adore the “Be series” shirts that Cents of Style offers. They are full of positive affirmations, like this Be Kind shirt. For me, this shirt is the most relevant for the phase of life that I am in. If there is absolutely nothing else that I could teach my daughters, I want them to be taught that it is important to be kind. Being nice to people doesn’t mean that you get walked all over. Some of the most kind people I know are also some of the strongest people I know!  [Read more…]

Best Tunic Ever for Postpartum!

Affiliate links included.

Last time I had a baby, I didn’t breastfeed for very long. She was a NICU baby and never did figure out nursing, so I pumped and fed her for about 3 weeks. This time, I am enduring longer and it has been a totally different journey. One difficulty that I didn’t expect at all was finding tops that would work with my ever changing postpartum body and is also breastfeeding friendly. That is why I am so grateful for this Cents of Style tunic!

Mom’s Night Out: Postpartum Style

One goal of mine for 2017 was to make sure to do something for myself each day. I haven’t always found the time to do that while we have been transitioning as a family of four, but I definitely feel like making it a goal has been helpful and a good reminder to make myself a priority. One way that I can make myself a priority is by having a little night out and let’s be honest, the best part about going out when you have a baby is wearing something that isn’t covered in spit up!

Clothing Necessities for a Beach Vacation

This post was sponsored by Speedo. I received Speedo products as compensation.

During the winter, there are few things I would rather do than go on a beach vacation! I have several friends who have been doing just that and it has given me serious wanderlust. Soon, I’ll be planning a trip that will involve the beach and I’m getting really excited about it! As much as I love spending time on the banks of the lakes nearby, there is nothing like soaking in the hot sun while enjoying the ocean waves.

Isn’t it crazy to look back at the end of the year and think about all of the things that have happened in that calendar year? This year has been a roller coaster of emotions, but I am really grateful for where I am today and where the many trials have brought me and have taught me along the way.

Festive Party Hairstyles

I received the Infiniti PRO by Conair  Spin Air Brush and the Infiniti PRO by Conair® Diamond Brilliance™ Diamond-Infused Ceramic Smoothing Hot Brush for my own personal use.  All opinions, text and experiences are my own.

I love holiday parties of any kind, but I think the reason why I love them so much is that it gives me an excuse to dress up a little bit. I don’t go to any fancy parties, but I like spending a little extra time on my look when I am going to a party because it makes me feel festive and excited for the party! I created two simple hairstyles that would be great for any festive party you plan to attend, or really just any day you want to try a fun hairstyle!

Both of these looks are really easy to create! I love that one has a more voluminous, messy look and the other one is quite straight and sleek so that you can choose the one that best fits your personal style. [Read more…]

Bumpdate 31 Weeks: Excitement and Mourning

I can’t even believe I am 31 weeks pregnant. Is this real life? If I go full term, I only have 9 weeks left. That is if I go full term! It is pretty insane to think about how much different things are this year than they were a year ago.

31 Weeks Pregnant Bumpdate

I was also pregnant a year ago. We were in Disneyland for Thanksgiving break and were living blissfully unaware of the life changing news that was about to come that following Monday when we learned that we had lost our baby.  [Read more…]

The Famous Swing Dress, Maternity Style

You may have been living under a rock if you haven’t ever seen a version of a swing dress on the internet. They are SO popular right now! If you haven’t ever worn one, I will tell you why they are so popular… they are like wearing a nightgown! I own two swing dresses with short sleeves, but I wanted to add a long sleeved swing dress to my closet too.

I LOVE this dress! My body seems to carry pregnancy weight in my arms and in my bottom and when I can kind of hide that, I am appreciative! I love that the long sleeves allow me to cover up my arms so that I don’t have to worry about being self conscious about them. [Read more…]
