Jewelry from Alex and Ani

Screen Shot 2017-09-20 at 12.17.26 PM

Happy Hump Day babes! Today I’m talking about Alex and Ani jewelry! I had never actually been in an Alex and Ani store until one recently opened up in Market Street – The Woodlands near our home. In fact, it was my best friend who took me in there for the first time. She was looking for a gift for her mom, so while she was shopping I did some browsing too. All of their pieces have different meanings which I love, because they make the perfect gifts! I ended up leaving with this simple little bracelet gold, and it has quickly become one of my go-to pieces for when I don’t want to wear a lot of jewelry.

1 Dress, 4 Ways To Wear It + A Touch of Sparkle With Kate Spade

Bertuzzi-Photography-010-16

If there is one thing this pregnancy has taught me, it’s that being creative when it comes to dressing the bump is a must.  I’ve stuck rubber bands in my pant button loops to add more room with my regular jeans, and I have shopped for regular size clothes and purposefully purchased one size up with the idea that I would tailor it down a size when pregnancy is over.  I have also found that once the first trimester fog is over and you emerge from your cave of saltines, and ginger ale, sweat pants, and over-sized tees, you want to look cute again!  I have found great success in shopping brands I love that have great pieces (mainly dresses) that can easily go from straight body types to maternity and back again.  While doing a little shopping on Market Street in The Woodlands, I popped into Kate Spade (one of my favorite designers) and found the perfect versatile dress great for when I am bumpin’ it and when I am back to my normal size in a few months.  This dress is perfect for anyone at any size and gives you 4 different looks in 1!

Cos-Bar-Makeup-5-683x1024

I’ve always been picky about which skincare products I use.  My skin tends to be dry and sensitive around my cheeks but oily in the T zone so I have to be careful with what products I use.  Since I am in my thirties, I am also more concerned about using a product to combat the signs of aging.  Recently, I visited COS BAR in Market Street, here in The Woodlands to check out their luxury skincare.  Be sure to check out the bottom of this post for details on the Market Street Blogger Crawl Aug 3rd!

We’re excited to hang out with one of our favorite local bloggers (who will also be at the August 3rd Blogger Crawl!!!), Ashlee Lastovica of Fancy Ashley! Hey, Ashley! Hows it going? We’re 1 week out from the Blogger Crawl! How excited are you? I am super excited to be a part of this year’s blogger crawl! I live in The Woodlands and spend a lot of time on Market Street! It’s one of my favorite places to shop and eat in my area. You’re partnering with Kate Spade. What trends have you been loving, in general, this season at Kate Spade or any other store? I am a huge lover of COLOR! So, Kate Spade is such a natural fit for me! This summer has been all about the florals and blush pink! Fall is coming soon and there are some great staples that I am loving lately! Everyone needs the perfect pair of jeans and booties and a great military jacket! Those staples are sure to be worn again and again during the fall and winter seasons! You’re from The Woodlands, along with a few of the other bloggers. What are some of your favorite haunts to take people to when they come visit this area? One of my favorite restaurants in the area is Perry’s Steakhouse. That is our favorite date night spot. We also love Trulucks! It has a great view of the lake! To shop, we usually head to Market Street for Mai Tai’s at Tommy Bahamas and then shop around there and usually end across the street at Nordstrom. I also love Pure Barre, so when people come to visit, I usually drag them to a class or two! Just ask my mom! 🙂 You’re on so many people’s blog rolls…who’s on yours? I’ve met some great people through blogging and I’ve been doing this almost 6 years now, so I’ve had the opportunity to meet lots of great gals. I always read my friends’ blogs, Mix and Match Mama, Sheaffer Told Me To, Edit by Lauren, Honey We’re Home, CStyle Blog and House of Harper. There’s more, but that’s just a small sample of the ones I try to catch up on when I can! Meet Ashley and 9 of your other favorite Houston bloggers on August 3rd at the Blogger Crawl! RSVP, here

Bertuzzi-Photography-010-16

This past weekend my daughter Camilla celebrated her 2nd birthday and it was all I could do to keep it together at the thought of my baby growing one year closer to leaving me one day for some boy.  Nevertheless the birthday princess needed a party and what’s more she needed to look good for it!  To know Cami is to know that she LOVES all things Minnie Mouse, so a Minnie Mouse themed birthday party was a no-brainer.

Happy Hump Day y’all! Today I’m sharing this look from Trina Turk with you guys! It’s funny, I’m usually a sucker for neutrals, but something happens when I walk into a Trina Turk store. It’s like all of a sudden I’m into bright pinks and turquoises, especially in the spring and summer!
