OLAY Ultra Moisture Body Wash with NEW Lock-In-Moisture technology

Believe it or not, even during the winter months in Southern California we still suffer from…you guessed it – dry skin! Although our ‘winters’ aren’t nearly as harsh as those back east, or where I am from in the Midwest, we still get enough chill in the air to dry out our skin. And trust me, there is nothing sexy about ashy legs and arms when you want to slip on that chic little silk slip dress for a night out, or when you are climbing into comfy pajama’s with itchy skin.

I recently came across the Olay Ultra Moisture Body Wash, which uses new Lock-In-Moisture technology, and I fell in love. To be honest, I wasn’t someone who even really used body wash before. I typically liked to keep things simple and stick to a bar of soap, but that got boring after a while and just wasn’t doing the trick as far as keeping my skin moisturized and smooth.
The first thing I noticed after using the reformulated Ultra Moisture Body Wash was that my skin actually felt CLEAN and SOFT; like I just scrubbed it down with a bar of soap clean, but without the dried out ashy look. Instead, it looked and felt super silky smooth, delivering visible results with an invisible feel.

After reading up about the body wash, I learned that the Olay Ultra Moisture Body Wash is the first and only to use the ingredient Pro-Glycerin – which I LOVE because it is a naturally derived ingredient from sunflowers. And if you have been following my blog for a while now, you know I love a good natural product, or ones that at least use more natural ingredients! Pro- Glycerin allows the moisturizers to be quickly absorbed into the skin, and treat dryness at the source.

I have found that keeping my skin moisturized is KEY to looking younger for as long as possible. I am constantly looking for the next best moisturizer and this product was shown to improve dry skin in 100% of women, as well as giving you younger looking skin with continued use! So you can count me in!

Blue Suede Moto Jacket

I can’t believe it is already Thursday! What the what?! My due date is in a week and a few days now and I feel like he could come anytime now – well that is actually what the Dr. said 🙂

Lately I have been trying to keep things comfortable and these flat booties have been really helping. I love that they still make my outfits feel edgy and stylish but also allow me to be able to walk around comfortably! They are also on sale, so that is bonus for you! Unfortunately I bought them a few months ago before they want on sale, but I still love them nonetheless!

I thought this jacket was a fun layering item on an all black look. I love that is a suede jacket but almost looks like it could be a denim moto jacket in these photos.

Also, I have been wearing these leather like leggings for the last few months of my pregnancy. I love layering big chunky knits over top or even OTK boots and a dress.

Winter Layers

Fall Street Style OTK bootsBrrr. It’s been getting cold guys. I love that even in Southern California we have enough of a shift in the weather to make it actually feel like winter. Although we don’t have snow where I live sometimes it feels like we could – haha! I mean okay maybe not, but it does get quite bit chilly especially when you are used to 70 degrees and sunny.

I like the cooler months because it gives me a fun opportunity to bundle up in all of my OTK boots, comfy leggings, and chunky knits like this oversized wrap shawl.
Fall Pregnancy Style OTK bootsI’ve been in need of a new everyday bag for so long and when I found this one on Black Friday it was too hard to resist. My wallet is definitely in tears over it but I thought, well…when it comes if I don’t LOVE it I can always return it. Guess what? Of course I LOVED it. It almost felt too nice to wear everyday but I am slowly breaking it in! Here is the ‘small’ version and I am also obsessed with the ‘mini’ suede one here. If you are looking for the look for less, I found this one that I am obsessed with for a fraction of the price.Fall Pregnancy Style OTK bootsFall Pregnancy Style OTK bootsMy sweater is from Seraphine – they carry the best maternity, nursing, and baby clothes for all of you mama’s out there. Definitely helps to wear something that doesn’t scream “maternity” and allows you to still feel stylish. They have a bunch of other cozy sweaters here.Fall Pregnancy Style OTK bootsThese boots have been a lifesaver so far this winter! The heels is not too high so you can still walk in them and the suede looks super expensive!
Wireless earbuds Christmas Gift IdeaAnd because I have been obsessed with podcasts and digital books lately I have had these wireless Sudio Sweeden earphones glued to my ears. I have the black and rose gold but they also come in white, blue, and pink – the perfect gift this holiday season guys! Use code ‘BlameitonBarneys‘ for 15% off your orders at sudiosweeden.com Wireless earbuds Christmas Gift IdeaOh, and I can’t forget to mention they come in this cute leather case and have a super long battery life guys! Much needed because I often forget to charge them!

Thanksgiving Day

Pinterest Pregnancy StyleOne of my favorite things to wear this time of year is a long sleeve shirt and jeans. Throw on some heels and a cute bag and you are good to go. This shirt is one of my favorites right now – it has a little bit of stretch to make you feel comfortable (no matter how much turkey or pie you consume!) but still looks super cute! Also, check out the buttons up the side – yep, those make breastfeeding little bub a breeze when he comes 😉 And they are gold so they go with pretty much everything.

The top is from Seraphine – they have the cutest maternity clothes that are actually really good quality and not super expensive. You know if celebs like Gwen Stefani, Anne Hathaway, & Mila Kunis are wearing them they have to be pretty good. I am thinking of snagging up these faux leather leggings for some upcoming holiday parties!

Pinterest Pregnancy StyleI am also slightly obsessed with pom pom beanies lately – they make wearing beanies more fun! The one I am wearing is from last year but this one is super similar and under $20!Pinterest Pregnancy Style Pinterest Pregnancy Style

Stella McCartney SunglassesCan you believe it is already Thanksgiving this week!? I feel like it was just yesterday that I found out I was pregnant and now my little bub is going to be here in less than 30 days! Ahh! So crazy! I am totally craving turkey, stuffing, and pumpkin pie lately so I guess it is a good think Thanksgiving is in TWO days!

My go-to outfit lately has been a dress layered over leggings or skinnies with some OTK boots – which you may have noticed if you follow my posts regularly 😉 This dress is from StyleWe.com meaning it is non-maternity (stoked because that means I can wear it after too!) and is perfect for layering with leggings like these faux leather ones.

And sticking to what I love, I paired it with some oversized sunnies and OTK boots – these are the Stuart Weitzman ‘lowland’ boots which honestly, I know are super expensive but they have been such a staple for the past two seasons, it is insane how much use they get! If you are considering them I can tell you they are worth the investment. However, I did link a couple of other styles for you at all price points below too!

Stay tuned later this week for all the Black Friday sale deals that are happening this week!

Stripe Love

Over the knee boots

Fact: I will always love stripes {regardless of how prego I am} and OTK boots are pretty much the best invention ever. I’ve been known to purchase one too many striped items – from turtlenecks and dresses to beanies and socks. I do not discriminate against a good stripe. However, I do tend to gravitate more towards a thin stripe rather than a big chunky stripe – but you get my point. I love ’em! This dress is from a brand I recently came across – LEGOE. An Australian label which is more of a lifestyle brand rather than a maternity brand – their clothes are made to fit pre-baby, post-baby, and all that in between. I love that I will be able to wear this dress after the baby comes!

And when I say OTK boots are the best invention ever, I mean it. I feel like they have a way to make me look taller, longer, leaner – all the things that a 5’2″ girl would want. I especially love these ones because they have a little bit of a heel (but nothing too cray) and are suede so they can be easily dressed up or made more casual with denim and a chunky knit.

Anyhow, I am off to sip some peppermint tea and watch the rest of American Horror Story (anyone else watching?!) before I drift off to dreamland! One more day till Friday!

Baby Shower Brunch at Herringbone La Jolla

Herringbone Restaurant San Diego Baby ShowerI wanted to pop in and share some photos from my baby shower brunch last weekend since the set up was too cute to not share! My good friend Tatum (yes, of Love Tatum Jewelry) was responsible for the beautiful table set-up, hence the beautiful crystals, foraged greens, and white flowers everywhere! 😉

The shower was at Herringbone in La Jolla, CA – the perfect place for a girl’s brunch and even better for an intimate baby shower gathering. Especially if you love french toast with maple butter, sticky buns, and breakfast pizza – no diet here (at least not until after baby)! I’ve been to Herringbone for dinner before but their brunch far surpassed my expectations. To drink, I had the blackberry smash mocktail which was delicious sans alcohol. My sister had the real version and assured me it was just as good! They also have locations in Santa Monica CA, Las Vegas NV, Waikiki HI, and Los Cabos MX. Based on the ambiance of the La Jolla location I am dying to see the Hawaii and Mexico locations – anyone ever been?

It felt SO amazing to celebrate our baby boy’s upcoming arrival with some of the sweetest ladies around! We kept it small and intimate which made it that much better to be able to have real conversations and enjoy each other’s company. Baby River is already a lucky little guy to have so many ladies who love him!
