Tropical Midi

I was pleasantly surprised the other day when this skirt fit. A little real talk for a moment, I have been in such a rut lately. I have been trying pretty hard to get back or at least close to my pre-baby weight & I don’t seem to be going anywhere. I’m not going to lie, it can be pretty frustrating & discouraging. Having this skirt do up was just the little encouragement I needed. It’s the small things right?
Happy almost weekend friends!

Current Skincare Favourites


image

image

During pregnancy my skin changed, so I had to change my skincare routine. Postpartum has been the same, along with the seasons changing. I have been trying new products left & right.  Here is a review of a few of my current favourites:
Dermalogica Skin Hyrdrating Booster c/o: Every morning I put on a moisturizer with SPF in it (protect your skin people!) but lately I have been finding that my skin feels dry a little while later. This hydrating booster has been helping with that tremendously. You just squeeze 6-10 drops onto your fingertips & apply to your face and neck. You then apply your daily moisturizer. Let me tell you, my skin feels like a dream after!
Mario Badescu Drying Lotion (find here): My skin has been breaking out in random spots lately (what am I a teenager again?) & this drying lotion is an easy solution. You just dab it on the problem area at bed time & magic happens overnight. It dries super fast, so you don’t have to worry about it getting on your pillow. I found it worked best dabbing it on a few nights in a row.
Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream (find here): I have a confession, in my tired Mama state of mind I accidentally was putting this eye cream on a bedtime. Oops! It is a day cream to help brighten & depuff those tired eyes. It definitely helps brighten under the eyes, it kind of has a slight shimmer to it.
Dermalogica Climate Control Lip Treatment c/o: One area I tend to forget to look after is my lips. I tend to wear lipstick & lipgloss most of the time or nothing at all. This lip treatment is perfect for giving my lips a break. It’s super moisturizing & works great for when I am out for a walk or run with Emery.
Mario Badescu Facial Spray (find here): Am I the only one who is loving on anything rose or lavender flavoured? I am obsessed with this aloe herb & rosewater facial spray! If I am starting to feel a bit drowsy or haggard, I just spritz my face with this. It is the perfect little pick me up & also leaves my skin feeling hydrated. Bonus, you can also spritz it in your hair!
What products have you been loving lately?

Floral Tops

Florals for spring? Groundbreaking, right? Personally, I love floral prints any time of the year. This comfy floral top from Anthropologie has been on repeat lately. It’s super comfy but also looks like I put some effort into my appearance. I also see they have a short sleeved version now, which I will be adding to my wish list. What’s on your wish list?

This fun little clutch would be a fun gift to give the new Mom. This could be your bestie, sister, cousin, etc. Pamper her by throwing in a few fun nail polishes inside. My current favourite brand is Julep.
I hope this helps you come up with some fun, cute & easy gift ideas for the Mama’s in your life! You definitely need to go check out Papyrus, and not just for Mother’s Day gifts. I love all the Kate Spade NY goodies they carry too! Click here to find the nearest Papyrus store to you!

When I saw Jenna post this Mama tee on her store’s Instagram page, I knew I had to have it. The t-shirts are a Plum Home & Design exclusive, and until May.10th, all the proceeds of the shirts will be going to the WIN house (Edmonton Women's Shelter). You can pick them up in store or online here. These tees are a great gift for any Mama out there. I adore that they are local, supporting a wonderful cause, comfy & cute. I may or may not currently be wearing this shirt to bed tonight.
Becoming Emery’s Mama has been the most beautiful thing to happen to me. I am so proud to be her Mama & cherish her dearly. I thank God everyday for the tiny, beautiful miracle she is. Thank you for letting me share her with all of you.
