Romper love

You never want anything more than when you can’t have it, right? So true in this case. I’m having serious romper (jumper, one piece, what do you call it?) envy right now.

My 7+ month expanding pregnant belly is looking at these pining away and dreaming of the days when my waist was small enough to fit into one. It doesn’t help that one of this year’s hottest trends is these one piece wonders and that they’re in every store. Just when I think I’ve found an adorable maxi dress I can fit into for the rest of my pregnancy, boom, it’s a romper (insert foot stomp here).

These all-in-one, oh-so-comfortable, screaming-my-name babies just aren’t flattering on a pregnant figure. I, unfortunately, have yet to find a way to rock one.

Someone quick, make me a flowing drop waist version that I’ll look fabulous in and in the meantime, wear one for me!

Mid week mani

Mini Queen couldn’t decide if my nails should be pink or purple this week so I thought, why not all of them! With all the nail polishes I have in stock, it’s only too easy for me to do an ombre look.  This pink to deep plum look was accomplished using all Zoya colors.

I love them! I might be having ombre nails, in varying colors, for a few weeks non stop now.





Which of the 4 colors is your favorite?

Happy polishing!

Sustainable local food + a giveaway

With my hubby being a chef and our family focus on an all natural healthy diet, fresh locally sourced food is big for us. One of our favorite Saturday pastimes as a family is to head down to the Pearl Farmers Market to shop and eat. We love connecting with local farmers and chefs and knowing just where our food is coming from.

Does that sound like you? If yes then I have an event you’d love to attend!

Kohl’s will also be releasing a limited edition smoke jumper tee on the 13th, just in time for you to pick one up before the movie premiere and I’m showing you 2 ways to style it for your little aviator, boy or girl.

1 tee, 2 ways. mini style

For your mini man, throw on a pair of distressed denim and accessories like an infinity scarf and high tops and what little pilot would be complete without a pair of aviators.

For your mini queen, grab a fun pair of shorts and moccasins, a combo that I love, and if you’re mini queen is like mine and loves the accessories, add on a head wrap, heart shaped sunnies and an airplane necklace.

Now you’re all styled and set to not only watch the movie but go for a shopping trip afterwards as well!
