My Blogging World

My Perspective and Thoughts on Blogging.......


Happy 2018!!!  What an exciting year this one is going to be! On a personal level, the highlight of our year will most definitely be welcoming our baby boy to our family. On a business level, I'm looking forward to growing my blog and really creating a space that allows me to share my life, my family, my everyday style and any tips or products I find helpful for you as a reader.

When I started this blog in April of 2013(you can see my first post here), I really was not sure how the blogging world worked nor did I ever imagine what it would become....I just knew that I enjoyed creating different looks, playing with my style, and to share it with my friends and anyone who was interested.  During that time, I happened to run into a fashion blog that I followed religiously for years and still follow today, that gave me the courage to say, "I think I can do this too"!

Fast forward to today, blogging has become a force, it's …

Happy Sunday!!  It's the last day of 2017 and what a fulfilling and exciting year it has been for us!  We were blessed with the news of finding out we were pregnant in early May and knowing that we would be welcoming a little brother and best friend for Ashton is definitely the best gift 2017 brought us.  With that said, it was also time to start thinking about the changes this new little boy would bring and how we were going to adjust from being a family of 3 to becoming a family of 4.  Through the next months, I experienced a roller coaster of emotions due to knowing that my little baby would soon be a little boy and soon enough we would ha…

Happy Tuesday!!  Wishing everyone a great week!  Today on the blog I wanted to answer a couple questions I have been receiving in the last couple weeks about my pregnancy. I did a Q&A back when I was 21 weeks pregnant and now I'm 31 weeks and in my third trimester so things are starting to become more real with each passing day!
Below are some of the questions I have been getting ::
1) Is Ashton aware or does he understand he will soon be a big brother?
Ashton definitely knows or senses there are things changing, specially with mommy. I don't think he quite understands the concept of having a little brothe…

Cozy Afternoons

A Pop of Red......








Happy Wednesday everyone! Hope you are all having a wonderful week!  I wore this cozy and comfy outfit over the weekend to run errands with my little family and go to dinner....it was perfect for the cold and dreary day. One of my favorite things to do during this time of the year is wear my red lipstick! I don't know if it's because I'm in the holiday spirit and red always makes me think of Christmas....or because I don't wear it enough during the year that I use the holiday's as an excuse. Whatever it is, I tend to gravitate toward it more around fall. I like to give a neutral or simple outfit a pop of color to highlight certain aspects of the outfit.  In this case, I think the pop of red highlights the earthy tones on the scarf.  Likewise, this scarf is so versatile....its a scarf, poncho and wrap all in one!  I love pieces that can be used in multiple ways.
Thank you so much for stopping by the blog today!  Hope you have a wonderful week!

Statement Pieces

When all else fails......you have statement earrings







Hi everyone!  Hope everyone had a wonderful month of October and a great start to your November!  As you may have read on my last post and seen through my Instagram, we were in Colorado last week on our little family vacation.  I plan on doing a blog post sharing some of our family pictures and all my recommendations on places to eat, visit and a couple things to do.
Over the weekend Todd and I got a chance to have a day date and it was so nice to be able to get away from our little guy for a little bit and belly up to a bar, have some pizza and just talk.  It's so good to be able to spend one on one time with your loved one and remember why you fell in love. Since I'm officially six and a half months pregnant I'm definitely taking advantage of those maternity jeans.  Let's face it, when you are pregnant and the baby starts growing it gets harder and harder to find things to wear, that look cute and that are comfort…

Fall Style

It's starting to feel a lot like fall.....








Happy Monday loves!!  I'm currently in Vail, Colorado with my little family having our last family vacation before the baby arrives! Todd and I wanted to do something just the three of us to get some quality time together before we had to head out of town for the holidays to visit family and then have my mom come over for six months to help with the babies.  It's beautiful out here, the views are breathtaking and the towns are so charming.  
I took these pictures a couple weeks ago when the weather was crisp and it felt like fall.  There is something about blanket scarfs that I absolutely love for days when there is a little chill in the air and I don't necessarily need a a heavy coat.  This is one of my favorite scarfs for fall because of how versatile it is (I wore it several different ways that day as you can see in the pictures), the fringe detail and it's super soft. I have paired it with several different outfits si…

Happy Monday friends!  Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!  Life is starting to get pretty busy around here, with the Holiday's coming, baby due in 3 and a half months, two upcoming family vacations scheduled, and preparing for my mom to come stay with us for 6 months! OMG!  It will definitely be a transition for all of us, as I have never had my mom visit for such a long period of time.  I am grateful that she is able to be here and the help that she will give me is priceless.  I'm truly blessed to count with her during this time.
As the baby has started to grow, so has my bump.  I have to find comfortable and affordable clothes that will get me through the remainder of my pregnancy without having to break the bank.  I'm pretty sure this is our last baby(never say never), so I don't really want to spend too much on clothes that I most likely will never wear again.  It's almost like buying trendy stuff....you just don't want to spend too muc…
