Due Date Maternity Shirt | Culpeper General

Share Button
Cutest. Maternity Shirt. Ever.

 

Yes, that’s a stamp on my growing belly. And if it’s not obvious from the picture, I’m due the 15th of February 2013.

 

Precious, right?!

 

 

¡Niña! | It’s a girl!

 

Shannon Carter of Culpeper General, a friend of a colleague of mine and owner of this Etsy shop kindly sent me this t-shirt and it’s been a hit anytime I wear it.

 

Her online shop has Due Date T-Shirts like mine (which come in four different colors), Monthly Onesies, First Month Onesies and Birth Announcement Onesies for the babes.

 

How adorable are these?!

 

First Year Monthly Onesies | Variety of colors

 

Birth Announcement Onesie

 

Numbered Birthday Shirt | Boy Monthly Onesie | Girl Monthly Onesie with Dots
These all make for super original baby shower gifts and I especially am digging the monthly onesies to keep the family updated the first year. They obviously come in a set of 12!
If this mega cute baby range looks familiar, you may have seen Shannon on The Martha Stewart Show last year and Culpeper General also made Babble.com’s Top 50 Etsy Baby Stores.

As for me, I’m definitely in the final countdown – it’s T minus 6 weeks (or sooner) and frankly, I’m getting anxious. I can’t wait to meet my daughter and see Little M with his baby sister.

 
 

Congratulations to all you pregnant mamas and best wishes for a happy and healthy 9 months…and beyond!

Tutorial: How to Wax Your Mama Mustache (VIDEO)

Share Button

Kids notice EVERYTHING. Including a little fuzz above the upper lip. Ok, so I don’t keep up as I should. I mean, it’s not always THAT noticeable. Unless of course, you are 5 years old and you say whatever it is that pops into your mind. Here’s how my son drove me to get my mami mustache waxed and a tutorial how you can wax your upper lip without pain (it can be done!) and regain your dignity. No shame. {Read More}

Mama and fellow blogger Andrea of Momma in Flip Flops featured me on the “Tour Through Blogland” series last week as one fashion blogger she likes to keep up with (thank you!) and this week, I’m celebrating three of my faves right here in the nation’s capital who I feel are true style mavens. They may not all blog about it everyday, but they live it. Either by helping others find their personal style, as a role model or for the simple love {Read More}

Hair TLC: Can I Get a Blowout Please?!

Sponsored post in collaboration with Bubbles Salon. Bad hair and and views are my own. Can I get a blowout por favor?! What is it? A blowout is more than just “getting your hair dried.” It’s washed and then the magic happens. The stylish uses brushes to blow out your hair straight, with some product (think old school, when your grandmother would go to the salon to get her hair done once a week) It leaves you hair looking shiny, smooth {Read More}
