I’m sure you’ve seen these teddy jackets left and right and we’re not hating it! I love this trend!

The one I have I got from Uniqlo and I honestly wish I got a larger size because I love an oversized fit. Anywho, I’m here to share with you a few stores where you can find these teddy jackets for an affordable price!

DIY Holiday Cards

Now that Jorge and I are parents, the more I think about more family things to do.

The holidays are right around the corner and the question of whether we’re going to get our holiday photo cards done professionally has popped in my head. First off, do we hire a photographer or do we do it ourselves? Then do we go through a professional service to get our photos printed? How much will all of these things cost?

My Top 5 Mascaras

I am a mascara junkie! The more coats the better. The chunkier my lashes look, the better! The clumpier it GETS, THE BETTER!

That’s the type of mascara user I am! 3 coats is the minimum! Haha. I know, that’s pretty excessive, but I hate when I do my mascara and the result that I get are malnourished lashes, do you know what I mean? If you are a “natural” mascara gal, this post isn’t for you. BUT, if you are curious about the mascaras I use that give me that falsie-looking vibe then keep reading!

PS: I’m bringing back MAKEUP MONDAY! I figured it would be nice for all of you to know what you’re gonna get on a Monday.

Adeline's First Trimester

I cannot believe that I will love motherhood as much as I do! It almost feels like this is my calling. Anyway, this post isn’t about me or my feelings. Today, I wanted to share with you the first three months of Adeline’s life!

She almost 5 months, and it still feels just like yesterday when I pushed her out into this crazy world. Her first three months flew by so quickly, and honestly, most of it is a blur! It’s just a mix of days where I am constantly checking diapers, feeding her milk, and constantly cuddling her — the most fulfilling 3 months of my life yet.

Thrift Store Diaries - Falling for Corduroy

When I saw Emily V post about corduroy on her Instagram, I knew I had to get something corduroy for myself. I think that it’s such a staple and timeless piece of fabric in anyone’s wardrobe.

A few weeks ago, my husband took me to Unique for a quick thrift shopping spree and I was able to snag this awesome jacket from Aeropostale for less than $10! It’s in a beautiful beige tan color and it’s lined with faux fur which I think is so perfect for layering this cold season!

Thrift Store Diaries - Super Oversized Sweater

I think right now, I just have to accept the fact that I AM THICK.

Even Jorge tells me this. He likes it I guess, but I don’t! As a blogger, I literally have no new clothes to wear because all my other clothes just look ugly on me! And because we are new parents, shopping just isn’t in the cards for us, so whenever I do want to buy clothes, I make sure we hit the thrift shops because I know this postpartum weight is temporary.
