3 Skincare Routine Essentials Under $100

22 February 2017

Now that 30 has officially arrived and I'm starting to see the first signs of aging I've gotten way more serious about my skincare routine than I previously was. Not, that I was slacking I just wasn't using a handful of products every morning and night. Now, it's about fine tuning my routine to things that I actually need at this point like, hyaluronic acid and glycolic acid. I'm basically obsessed with all things glycolic, it's the only thing that keeps breakouts at bay on my troublesome skin (especially during pregnancy; yes it's pregnancy safe). Hyaluronic is great for hydrating my skin, particularly in the wintertime. Personally I look for those ingredients paired with more natural ingredients and sans parabens and synthetics. Most recently I was introduced and immediately became obsessed with the M-61 skincare line. It is amazing. While it's nearly impossible to play favorites I was able to narrow it down to three essentials that I officially can't live without. All are under $100 and can be shopped at BlueMercury.

Pregnancy Staple: Little Black Tank Dress

21 February 2017

If you've been experiencing the freak weather patterns this winter you're not going to be even slightly surprised by the fact that I was able to get away with wearing a tank dress on Sunday. A TANK DRESS! Sure, I threw on a suede (super colorful) topper courtesy of BlankNYC but hello, tank dress!     It was kind of amazing to spend the day at the park without having to deal with a load of layers in mid-February. 

Now, let's talk about the dress that got all those exclamations. If there's one piece that you need while sporting a bump it's a little black dress, particularly this Ingrid and Isabel ruched tank dress (for under $100). Have enough black? Worry not, the dress comes in 6 colors. Dress it up for a glam night on the town or go casual with leather slip ons and a bold lip....

This Week - Fashion Week Roundup

20 February 2017

This month has just flown by and I'm having a hard time dealing with the fact that it's already the 20th. Like how? Anyways...  Technically, this is two "This Week's" in one, but it mostly is fashion week-based, I think. So, we're going to start when Fashion Week began on the 9th and move on from there (don't worry there's a lot blank spaces in between then and now). 

Since the week and actual day started off with a blizzard, heading downtown wasn't my top priority until the snow at least slowed down a little it bit. So, I held off until around the end of the day to catch shows and it was pretty worth it. 

Tadashi Shoji was 100% my favorite show. I mean, who can resist the colorful 70's vibes he sent down the runway? Not me! I'm actually kinda giddy that I get another season inspired by the 70's to kick it in style. Also, I basically need everything from this show. 

Noon By Noor is usually one of my favorites, but perhaps it was on the heels of the colorful looks from Tadashi that left me wanting more. Don't get me wrong: their style is flawless and the textures were totally on point, but the sea of camel just wasn't for me.

The next morning, I headed into Bollare to pick up some goodies from their lounge (most of which won't see the light of day until this bump is gone) but at least I'll have something to look forward to post-baby.

I kicked off the weekend at the ShopStyle Social House with Jackie, Jenna, Gita, Aileen, and Sabrina. We spent a good few hours catching up, drinking green juice (they had champs) and taking tons of pictures and boomerangs for Insta-stories. 

Finally after getting hungry, Jackie and I headed off to The Meatball Shop (my first time!) and indulged in some seriously delicious meatballs. 

We snapped off some outfit pictures before heading to meet the gals for drinks and this amazing group shot!

After Saturday's festivities, I sat out the rest of fashion week with the exception of an appointment here and there. One not-to-miss appointment was at Amika- because who turns down a good blowout? Especially when Clueless is on...

Valentine's was super sweet, thanks to Bliss and Baker's goodies - so nom!

Finally, I ended the week with modeling at the Bumble and Bumble #maneaddicts show. I basically want my hair to look like this ALWAYS. I'm all about this 40's retro style by Laurent Philippon.

ASOS Green Wrap Dress

16 February 2017

I've said it before and I'll say it again, wrap dresses are a key ingredient when it comes to closet staples. Especially when it comes to dressing bumps of all sizes. This particular dress doesn't come from the maternity section of ASOS and still managed to fit like a glove because of the stretchy knit fabric and faux wrap front. The colors pops, and the front details take it from typical wrap dress to something a little more special whether I'm wearing it my new sneakers or a heel. Since it's not quite sleeveless weather here a leather topper keeps me from looking took ridiculous walking around in the 40-something degree weather. That and it kind of toughens up the look a bit to match the sneakers with a dress styling, which I am all for at nearly 29 weeks pregnant. (Truth: these sneakers totally have a super padded insole making them a dream to walk in and I may be wearing a kids size 3).

Turtlenecks and Pregnancy

14 February 2017

One thing I've learned this pregnancy is that turtlenecks on a pregnant gal can go horribly wrong, REALLY FAST. Honestly, mock necks are probably the way to go to avoid looking like I have six chins or a giant potato for a head. I've taken enough pictures over the last few months to make me never want to wear them again, but alas somehow I still find myself shooting outfits featuring this 'clothing frenemy'. This time around things turned out in the positive for once with this cute little jumper and socks with heels pairing. Now, if it would just stay consistently warm enough to wear this on a regular basis as opposed to like, once a week, I would be set. Thankfully a coat helps me out when I get the occasional chill on my constantly overheated body. I will say one perk of running at abnormally high temperatures is being able to wear bare legged looks like this in 40 degree weather no problem...
