All opinions are mine alone. #GladeHolidayCheer #CollectiveBias Anybody call for a girls night? ’Tis the season for giving, so kick off your shoes and have a ladies night! There’s just something special about getting together with your gal pals and celebrating the holidays. Although I could do without Utah’s long winters, I really do enjoy this time of year. It might just be my favorite… The events, the food, and the downright feeling all make this time of year the very most special. I feel I might be even more sentimental since baby girl will be here come January! Let’s talk holiday prep… Story of all of our lives, right? There’s the decorating, the shopping, the cooking… The list goes on and on! Although getting everyone together and chillin’ with your family is what this season is all about, I’m also a fan of a good ol’ fashion ladies night (with a twist!). When you’re 8 months pregnant, prepping for a party, let …

The BEST Maternity Basics

Quality maternity clothes can be hard to come by– Trust me, I know. When shopping online it can be hard to know what you’re going to get, but I’ve found the jackpot people! If you are expecting, you need to check out Bae. I cannot say enough good things about the items that I have from them. They are seriously the BEST. 1. The comfiest joggers you’ll ever purchase. They fit like a glove, the fabric is so soft and stretchy, and they’re totally flattering. I want to live in them!! And umm they have pockets. Real pockets. These joggers are a MUST. 2. Striped t-shirt.  Such a cute basic tee! I really like the simple shape and the cute embroidery. Hallelujah for a comfy tee that is actually long enough! It has a good collar too. That maybe sounds weird, but I hate cheap collars that bunch up on you after one wash. This one doesn’t 😉 3. Split front pullover. This pullover is a maternity basic that you’ll love! The mauve color is to die for, …

Straighten Your Smile: Candid Co.

Let me paint you a picture… I’m a fourteen year-old brace face that absolutely dreads going to the orthodontist. I’m super self conscious about my teeth, not to mention zit-faced and awkward. This mouth full of metal hated, yes hated with a fiery burning passion, having braces. By the time I got them, they just weren’t cool anymore. You know when you’re young and you think that braces are cool? Yeah, they were not cool when I had them… After two years of my mouth bleeding and my teeth aching, I never wanted to see the orthodontist again. EVER. So what did I do? When I got my retainer, after all of the agony of my braces, I didn’t wear it. Okay, so my mom maybe made me wear it for like a year, but after that I put it in its case in my bathroom and never looked back. Now, as an adult, my teeth have of course shifted and I’m kicking myself for being an irresponsible adolescent. Ugh. So, why the trip down …

Baby Registry w/ Target + Johnson & Johnson

This post has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #RegisteringForBaby #CollectiveBias When you’re expecting baby number one, everything is a little, well… Overwhelming? All of the baby advise, all of the option for baby gear… It’s terribly exciting and overcoming all at the same time. I for one am the kind of gal that believes you should do things your own way. I’m a go with your gut kind of person, so I feel like you’ve gotta do what you think is right and what you feel good about. After all, we’re all supposed to have that mama intuition, right? And I think that comes in all different shapes and sizes! Regardless of how we want to parent, we all need at least some gear for our little bundle of joy! Let’s talk baby registries. For today’s post, I’ve partnered with Target and Johnson & Johnson for a little baby looove. (Hover over the image above to shop these items!!) So, here’s the scoop— I’ve been nesting …

Giftable L’Occitane Advent Calendars (Yes please!)

Fa la la la la… Who’s ready for the holidays?! After Halloween, everything sort of just seems like a flurry, at least for me. Let the craziness begin! Thankfully, I have just the thing to help you get prepared 😉 Wondering what to get your mother-in-law for Christmas? Your skincare obsessed BFF? Well… Don’t fret! The L’Occitane advent calendars are here to save the day (again)! Here are a few of my favorites from each set: Luxury Advent Calendar Almond Delicious Hands. THIS STUFF IS AMAZING. I’ve raved about it before, I know, I know. But it’s just so good, I had to mention it again. It smells heavenly and it makes your hands as soft as a baby’s bum. I always keep one stocked in my purse! Roses et Reines Hand & Nail Cream. Gimme all the creams. I really love the scent of this product and again, it leaves you feeling silky smooth. My hands and nail beds get SO cracked in the winter, so it’s products like this that literally save me! …

Baby Girl’s Nursery Reveal

We are seriously so stoked for our little one to arrive. I can’t believe that I only have 12 more weeks… It’s insane! I’ve been nesting like crazy getting everything ready over here, but putting together her nursery has seriously been my favorite part. I LOVE decorating and I have to say her room just might be my fave. I went pretty neutral with feminine touches. It makes for really calm vibes. I feel like it’s sort of a modern meets bohemian feel… Most things you see pictured are still available and if not, I’ve linked super similar items! First off, my dream is to have a library and I really want my kids to have a love for reading. We have a living room downstairs that has a big bookshelf and I don’t call it the living room… I call it the library. I’m ridiculous, I know. But just let me pretend that I’m Belle from Beauty and the Beast! Sooo naturally I went out and bought a million books for our little lady’s …

L’Occitane + Rifle Paper Co. Fall Faves

L’Occitane has partnered with Rifle Paper Co. and it’s a beautiful thing. It’s basically the best of the best joining forces, so… Yeah. It’s pretty rad. Winter is coming (nooooo) and if you’re like me you’re trying to get prepped. What new boots do I need? Beanies? Scarves? And oh yeah, my skin! It can be quite the rough transition if you don’t have the right products. I for one am going to avoid my skin taking a beating this season! My hands and elbows tend to get dry and cracked during the winter, so I live by this stuff. The travel sizes are perfect for your purse and for holiday gifts (even stocking stuffers) for the upcoming holiday season. Plus, since L’Occitane has partnered with Rifle Paper Co. the packaging is cuter than ever! A few of my favorites from the L’Occitane + Rifle Paper Co. collection… I truly can’t say enough about the hand cream. My husband was skeptical but then I made him use it and he now understands my obsession, ha. …
