5 Things Lately

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Today, I’m sharing a few things I’ve been into lately. Read on to see what I’ve been wearing a lot, new brands I’ve discovered, what new baby items I’m trying out, what I’ve been eating, and what I’ve been obsessing over.

MadeByMary Zola Disc Necklace

Currently wearing a lot lately: my Mother’s Day gift- a MadeByMary necklace. This necklace is called the Zola disc necklace and is custom made just for you! I love this necklace because it’s so dainty but the circle makes a huge statement. People can’t help but stare and wonder what’s written on it. This piece matches most of what’s in my wardrobe and I love that it’s a brushed matte finish instead of a glossy finish. I also love her other necklaces such as her bar necklaces and her disc chains. I can tell that I’ll be wearing a lot more pieces from this company because they’re the perfect fit for my style.

 

Lush Smocking Dress http://bit.ly/2ro4GWT

Currently discovered: Lush clothing brand. So, I was online shopping late one night after a stressful day and stumbled upon this casual, summer dress. Just what I was looking for! Something summer-y and well made within a $50 price range. I thought I’d give it a try and if it doesn’t work out, I could always return it. Plus, I’m going through my postpartum weight loss journey and who knows if it’ll even fit right. So, I got it and tried it on and was pleasantly surprised that it fit perfectly. The right length and all since I’m short. I’ve since been searching more about their company and found at least 10 different items that I really really want! So if you haven’t heard about this brand yet, go check it out and see if it’s for you too.

Currently trying out new baby item: the baby sling. I’ve always been intrigued by it but never had the courage to really try it out until now (my 3rd baby). I don’t know… to me, the sling just seemed unsafe and not sturdy enough to hold a baby. I have tried baby wraps and baby carriers but wanted to venture into something more stylish and easy to use. The wraps are too long and take a long time to get ready for baby. The carriers are too stiff and boxy for me. I want something lightweight, can hold baby safely, and look stylish doing so. I still have to get the hang of it but, so far so good.

Currently eating: these thin and crispy dark chocolate chip cookies from Pepperidge Farm. They are amazing! I have this obsession for salty and sweet combination food items and this is the icing on the cake! They’re also thin and crispy which is forgiving on my soft gums. If you haven’t tried these yet, do so! They are life changing (okay maybe that was a bit dramatic) but, seriously… go try them!

Currently obsessing: bows- hair bows to be exact. Not for me but for me. Do you understand??? Lol. 

In just the past few months, I’ve shamelessly acquired lots of hair bows for me- errr, I mean my daughters. They’ve become this secret obsession of mine and I’d like to finally admit to them. I mean, they’re just hair accessories right? What could be soooooo special about them?! See… but you are wrong my friend. They’re more than a hair accessory- they’re a way of life! A style statement. A little piece of fashion that lets the world know who you are by not saying a single word. Yeah, you can tie your daughter’s hair up in a ponytail or braid it into pigtails, but then add a hair bow or two and WAHLAAAAhhhh…. you’ve got the most cutest, stylish babe ever! These are magic. Plus, some are unicorn bows and are selling like hot cakes on my FB groups… let’s just say, some women are willing to dish out $200 for a piece of fabric that goes on a little girl’s hair. So, it’s a way of living. Ya know?? lol
