I've been talking a lot lately about how to balance promoting quality clothing with good prices. That can be tricky! And then I remembered J.Crew Factory exists. I haven't shopped for regular clothes in so long that I had forgotten about one of my favorite brands... until I saw a sale email from them yesterday. All new arrivals are 40% off.
I've been wanting to write this post for a while, but couldn't figure out how to organize it. I finally sat down this weekend and thought about the different areas in my life and how I incorporate a wellness "philosophy" into each. Even if you don't read the full post, what I want you to take away is that I, like most people, am not perfect and don't even strive to be.
Happy Monday, guys! We had a perfect quintessential summer weekend that included pizza on the beach at sunset, a BBQ, pool party, baby shower, and our last parenting class (now we're serious swaddling pros). I had an insane surge of energy for the first time in months, and I took full advantage of it. I realized last night that 4th of July weekend is next weekend.
It’s officially been four weeks since I started using an anti-aging cream (read my two week update here and about how they earned Good Housekeeping’s Seal of Approval here), and I’m ready to share my final results!
Overall, I’ve been beyond impressed and felt zero self-consciousness snapping photos of my face for this post. Usually, I’d be worried about drooping skin, but I feel tighter and brighter, and therefore more confident!
A lot of you have been asking me to share my birth plan, so I wanted to finally share it with you today. Because we decided not to have a set "birth plan" (more on that at the very bottom of this post), I'm sharing how we're preparing physically, mentally, and emotionally for labor. Obviously, I know that I have no idea what I'm in for since I've never done this before, but I'm thinking of it like training for a marathon (but like the hardest marathon ever): I'm going to train as much as possible in any way that I can, and when the day comes, I'll have some tools in my back pocket that will make the experience easier and more manageable.
