Because it’s Friday (yay!) and I have some favorites to share with you….random favorites, but favs non the less. And I know everyone does 5 on Friday….but I’m pregnant and exhausted, so I’ve only got 4.
Everyone’s favorite Bath and Body Works 3 wick candles are on sale! I showed some major restraint and only picked up one….it’s the Pumpkin Apple scent and I LOVE it! I was also on the hunt for a light body spray and this Pretty as a Peach spray totally won me over! It’s so light and fresh and just makes me happy!
A few of you asked if I was wearing maternity jeans in this post (I wasn’t….I had to squeeze in to my regular jeans for the photo!), and if so where were they from. Well…it seems like everyone is on the hunt for a good maternity skinny jean, not just me! I have regular maternity jeans from when I was pregnant with Hudson, but no skinny jeans. I’ve tried to find some but every single pair I tried was rough and uncomfortable. BUT…two of you recommended the Jessica Simpson line (thank you Shayna and Marie!) at Motherhood Maternity….and I had never thought about checking there! I stopped by the next day and was pleasantly surprised! Every single pair I tried on were super soft and comfy. Can I get an amen? I ended up picking up these in a medium wash and a dark wash. They were buy one get one 50% off in store! I bought mediums and found them to be true to size…but if you are taller than me (I’m 5’8″) then they will probably be too short for you.
Okay, so this is going to seem weird, but stick with me. I recently realized I had a major addiction…..to chapstick. Yes, chapstick. Apparently it’s a real thing. I had some kind of chapstick in every single room of our house. And in my purse. And beside my bed…even in the kid’s rooms! And I was constantly reaching for it. I mean it was ALL THE TIME. And I was miserable without it. So I read up on chapstick and it turns out it can be bad for your lips because it doesn’t allow the cells to regenerate and shed like they should….so the more you use your chapstick the more you need it. Isn’t that crazy? Anyway, Dr. Oz (I know….) suggests coconut oil or lanolin instead. So I tried coconut oil and found it to be too greasy and it didn’t stay on for very long. Then I read you can use the lanolin nipple cream on your lips….so I grabbed an old tube I had from those early breastfeeding days and I was HOOKED! It has made my lips so soft! And it stays on for a long time so you don’t have to keep re-applying. And…if it does wear off my lips aren’t uncomfortable like they were when my chapstick would wear off. So trust me on this and get you some lanolin! (They sell the big tubes and the travel size at Target!)
I picked up this dress for Sadie and it is the cutest on EVER. I promise to get a photo of her asap. Now I want ALL THE COLORS. And I wish I looked that cute in a tutu dress.
Happy weekend friends!
