Well hello friends, it’s been awhile! Megan and I took a little unexpected break for the last two weeks from the link up, which you may have noticed. …

I think it’s safe to say that it feels like spring has officially sprung here! Although yesterday was super windy and chilly… but we are going to power through. Last weekend, however, was gorgeous! All of the trees and flowers are starting to bloom, it was in the 70s, and I was sad to see it end. It did give me a chance to give this orange floral jumpsuit a try. I had a fun project to work on with JCPenney, and wound up turning it into a full outfit post because I love the jumpsuit so much.
I don’t think I’ve ever owned anything orange in my life. Ok, maybe when I was a child in the 80s, but definitely nothing in my adult life. I was worried it would be too bold, but I really wound up falling in love. I went up a size to fit my growing belly, and while it’s a little big right now, it’ll be perfect to grow into. Pretty sure I’ll be wearing this all spring and summer long thanks to the ruched elastic waistband!

Well hello there! Things have been a bit slow around here, but I am excited because I have a lot of fun posts coming your way in the next few weeks. I am so excited to bring back my beauty hits and misses today! I didn’t post one in February because pregnancy exhaustion is so real guys! I honestly did not have the energy, so I figured I’d combine the last 2 months. Today I am bringing you some products I tried in both February and March, and most of them were hits!
February and March Beauty Hits:
The first product I am excited to finally have jumped on the bandwagon for is the Chi Paint Party Flat Iron (c/o). I have never owned one because #straighthairproblems, but had always wanted to try one to curl my hair. I’m so glad I finally did! It helps create the most beautiful waves that stayed in tact all day long. This exact iron is currently on sale for under $80, which is such a great deal if you’re looking for a new straighter!
I have been trying out two new nighttime moisturizers, and have fallen in love with both. First is the E.l.f. Hello Hydration cream (c/o), which happens to be only $12. At this price this moisturizer is an absolute must have! It feels so silky, and is absorbed into the skin quickly. I have also been loving the DermaE Advanced Peptides & Collagen Moisturizer (c/o). This one has stronger scent to it, but is equally as moisturizing and luxurious feeling.
If you’re looking for a good body moisturizer, the Purlisse Coconut Oil + Orange Blossom Body Butter (c/o) smells and feels like a dream. If you like the scent of creamsicles, you’ll love this! I have been using it every day, and have even been using it as a belly moisturizer for the bump. The last hit is the Glo Skin Beauty Power C Serum (c/o). I have been using this every morning after I get out of the shower. This product is definitely a splurge, but has made my skin feel so much brighter. I have also noticed some of my dark spots/acne scars are lighter, which makes it a huge hit in my book!
February and March Beauty Misses
As always, I’m super sad that a few products made it to my misses list. I really wanted to love both of these! I actually purchased the Pravana The Perfect Blonde Masque at the recommendation of my hair stylist. It was something I really wanted to love, but have just not been that impressed. My hair feels only slightly less brassy after using it, but not as much as I had hoped for. Another miss was the Pixi Rose Cream Cleanser (c/o). It smells great, however for some reason my face doesn’t feel super clean after using it. I don’t feel like it’s great at removing makeup, which is what I look for in a cleanser (especially if I’m using it at night!)

Happy Thursday everyone! Hope this week is treating you well. If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen last week that I made a special announcement. That’s right – I’m pregnant! It has been hard to keep, mainly because I am showing so much sooner than I did with Harper. I will be 13 weeks this weekend, which is crazy to already be starting the second trimester! Stay tuned for lots more bump friendly fashion.
I have been talking about how I am over regular jeans now for the last week, but I managed to squeeze into this pair one last time hah! I ordered this navy eyelet blouse from VICI recently, and might be getting a second color in it. It is my absolute favorite! I sized up to a large, and it’s super roomy. Until the bump is bigger, I felt like it needed a little tuck. These jeans, however, are on their way out. I have already started wearing some maternity jeans, and have picked up a few new pairs that I’m excited to share. You know I can’t live without my jeans, and I can’t wait to start sharing some more #bumpstyle with you!
