When we first started envisioning Brady’s nursery room, we knew one thing for sure. We wanted it to be a gender neutral space. Even before we found out we were having a boy, we would’ve created the same type of space for a girl because we both really love a gender neutral feel for a baby’s room. We also knew that we didn’t want it to feel too “baby” and look more like another room in our home with a similar mid century modern vibe.
Brady, Brady, Brady. He came into our world on February 26th, weighing 8.5 pounds and measuring at 19 inches. We fell in love immediately and Jonny and I are living in a newborn dream. Jonny and I talked a lot about what we wanted our birth experience to be. We decided that we didn’t want to hire someone to take hospital photos because we wanted to be 100% in the moment as Brady entered our world. To be honest, I am so glad that we went this route because Jonny and I were able to experience every single second of Brady’s birth and we will never forget how special it felt. With that said, I wanted to break down Brady’s birth story because I found reading birth stories before our own birth to be very comforting and therapeutic, especially since I had never experienced something as profound and life changing as birth. I wanted to share ours with you, especially since our birth story was not exactly what I had envisioned.View Post
Since I entered adulthood (no, not the “I just turned 18 and now I’m adult adulthood. I mean the adulthood when you can actually begin to afford the luxury skincare items you want instead of finding whatever is available at Target), I always thought that they more expensive the skincare item, the better it would work. I would actually scoff at lower priced skincare because how could they work just as well as the super expensive brands that I was spending hundreds of dollars on? I mean, weren’t those products expensive or inexpensive for a reason? Well, I was oh so wrong.View Post
Whether you have ever experienced pregnancy yourself or know someone close to you who has, chances are you understand how difficult it can be to find luxurious and quality maternity pieces that not only fit well but make you feel beautiful even though your body is changing every day. Now that I am currently well into my nine month of pregnancy, I have found myself reaching for the same few items every day because they are the only pieces that I still feel good in, which can feel a bit boring and tiresome.View Post
I think anyone that has been pregnant would agree that pregnancy is weiiiiiird. Like, weird things happen to your body and many of them I had not heard of before experiencing them myself. I wonder if women just forget about them or brush them off as “hey, that’s pregnancy for ya!” However, I always think it’s humbling to share honest experiences in this space and decided I would open up about some of the weirdness I have personally endured throughout this pregnancy.View Post
