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!

How To Style, Maintain and Trim Your Bangs (VIDEO)

Share Button

Having bangs/fringe can be a lot of work — after all, they seem to have a life of their own! However if cut and styled right, the look is fresh, edgy and dramatic. Every morning I wake up looking like this: Hmm? The White Snake/80’s Hair Band look has NO place today! See my latest video on how to style, maintain (or tame!) and trim your bangs for a fresh, chic look.  P.S. as a bonus you get a mini Spanish {Read More}

Shop Small: Kiskadee Boutique Renovation Sale

Share Button

I received a gift card to shop the Renovation Sale. All items selected and styled by me!  — For those of you in the Washington, D.C. area, you know how much we value our small businesses. Here in Alexandria I am spoiled for choice with boutiques, cafés, fitness facilities — all owned and operated by locals. Having grown up in a mall (most of us did, that’s how it was) “shopping small” wasn’t even on the radar. In fact, I {Read More}

No More Gift Shopping, Please! (well, sort of…)

I am a part of the PBS Kids VIP program and was given credit to shop the Overstock Kid Zone.  In this house we have something I call “Birthday Burnout.” All of our birthdays are around the busiest times of the year — December and January. Mine is on December 19th. Let’s just leave it at that. Then comes Jesus’s birthday, which just leaves everyone knackered. After the new year we celebrate our wedding anniversary on January 7th, followed by my son’s birthday on {Read More}

Before the holidays I asked friend, personal wardrobe consultant and owner of Style Speaks, Cathy Starnes to help me get started on my closet organization. I found that despite cleaning and sorting, I  wasn’t exactly getting rid of stuff which is what I really needed to do. So I asked her to help me and we decided to put together a video on how to organize your closet and help others who have a hard time letting go of stuff. It’s scary {Read More}

Slimming and Stylish Lyssé Pieces Every Woman Needs

Share Button

I worked with Lyssé on a sponsored Instagram only campaign and items were sent for me to style. This post is not sponsored or required. As women we compare ourselves to other women, something I stopped doing because it only makes you bitter and there is nothing you can do about it. There will always be someone prettier, smarter, better dressed, thinner, taller than you, etc. etc. But that doesn’t mean we aren’t fabulous ourselves.

This post comes to you after being in pj’s for an entire day and just lounging around the house with the husband and kids. Christmas Day and Boxing Day were sunny and gorgeous here in the DC area and nearly 50 degrees. We took a walk around Jones Point in Alexandria and let the kids run it out. It was an easy going day — barely any makeup, dry shampoo to get my hair looking somewhat decent and a simple, easy yet {Read More}
