Four Things We Love // Spring 2014 Edit

Spring is finally here and there are so many reasons to celebrate. It’s time to leave behind the soups, sweaters and scarves to engage in these FOUR season-changing favorites. Pull up your hair, hop into a dress and get creative in this season of growth.4things_final_aprilEAT: A roasted banana boat is the perfect snack to satisfy cravings and stay healthy! Add in some walnuts for a dose of good-for-you omegas and dark chocolate chips for antioxidants. Haylie Duff and her sister Hilary sweeten up the warm, campfire snack with marshmallows- a welcome twist on the classic S’more.

WEAR: Nothing screams spring like a flirty little dress. Our Sleeveless Fit and Flare Maternity Dress with an empire waist and scoop neck will have you looking sweeter than jelly beans this holiday.

DO: As the temperatures go up, you may wish your hair does as well. These 6 Easy Braided Hair Styles will keep you cool and comfortable while staying on-trend.

CREATE: Like flowers in the spring, babies seem to boom and bloom around this season. Try something different for your next baby shower gift and create these adorable numbered baby bodysuits, or keep them for you and your baby!

It’s almost that time to sip on some eggnog and dive into a fabulous feast. But until that day comes, we are enjoying all of the festive gatherings as well as the much-needed down time at home. Whether we’re donning the color of the season paired with a sexy makeup look or curled up with a decadent hot drink and a great book, it’s prime time to celebrate the weekend!

Four Things We Love // Fall 2013 Edit

Weekends are all about kicking back and taking a much needed breather. Whether you relax by running around town, meeting up with friends or simply curling up on the couch with a good book, hot drink and a comforting meal, we hope you enjoy every minute of it.

Breakfast in bed never tasted so good thanks to Oatmeal Pancakes with Maple-Glazed Roasted Apples.

There may not be a more fall-perfect maternity sweater – we love the cut, the color, the whole thing.

Put away that flat iron; a messy-chic low bun is just what the weekend calls for.

We’re reading the inspiring book, Words That Matter, because if Oprah tells you it’s a must-read, it is.

We are happy to welcome our Guest Bloggers back to our blog, the experts from Basq Skincare! Check out steps 1 + 2, Basq’s Citrus Sugar Body Polish Perfect for Pregnancy and Combat Stretch Marks with Basq’s Butter. Below is their third tip that explains how to prevent and combat the “all-over” stretch.

From basq:

Now that we’ve covered the actual marks, let’s not forget the “all-over” stretch. We want you to escape not just mark-free but sag-free too!  For the all-over stretch, there is nothing better than omega rich oils.  Our Basq Resilient Body Oil is an Ana award winner that even received a shout-out from Heidi Klum on her website.  It is packed with collagen and elastin boosting oils. It is never greasy and a little goes a long way. Use it in the morning after a shower all over the body for full body rebuilding.
Finally, for those of you who are dedicated to your battle against marks we created a value all-in-one 9 Month Stretch Kit. This kit includes a full-size Advanced Stretch Mark Butter, travel-size Resilient Oils so you never feel itchy and a 4 oz. Citrus Sugar Polish to exfoliate smartly. It’s all you need for mark-free skin!  We built these products just for you so enjoy, stretch better and bounce back beautifully!
