Things That Make Working Moms Happy

Working moms are unsung heroes because not only do they successfully manage the household, they also take time to follow their dreams.

As a freelancer, I work from home, and though I have the luxury to set my own work hours, get stuff done in the comforts of my at-home-office, be my “own boss” if you will, things still get really difficult!

Where To Shop Cute Clothes for Modern Mommies

After giving birth to Adeline, I had the biggest struggle finding clothes that fit and looked cute on me!

I naively thought that my baby weight will magically disappear the moment my baby leaves my body, so you could say that I had a rude awakening. For months, even to this day, I’m in this awkward place of not having clothes to wear because everything’s either too small, or too big. So I had to resort to getting new clothes; not that I’m complaining at all! I love shopping for new clothes, and today, I will be sharing with you an online store where you can get clothes for all stages of your life: single life (women’s clothing), pregnancy, and motherhood (maternity clothing)! PinkBlush sent me two tops of my choice and today I will be showing you how I styled them.

Like I said in one of my Instagram posts, I didn’t really give postpartum recovery some thought, so I didn’t expect all the pain that I felt. I actually still feel the pain now because my wound didn’t close up (yeah, I know huhu), but that’s a post for another day.

Today, I want to talk to you about why I am not “breastfeeding” Adeline. There will be no tips and tricks here. Just my thoughts, and my feelings about the whole thing.

I know a lot of moms say to give the body time to heal, adjust, and be what it’s supposed to be for the baby, I can’t help but feel awful whenever I feel the pangs of pain down there and when I see myself in the mirror and in pictures. Like, girl, you really that big?! But I know all of this is temporary… that I will heal eventually, and that my body will shed its extra love handles.

Today, I will be sharing with you the things that I do to cope while I’m still on this road to complete recovery.
