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.
Andrea, here! I want to formally introduce myself before I make my way south to Market Street to host my Dope Mom Summit!
This past year, I’ve combined my love of comedy and passion for helping moms with my Dope Mom Tips and working as a Parenting Coach. Since going viral on my web series, I’ve decided to spread my tips for finding more joy and freedom in motherhood through deep transformation and comedy with my traveling summits. H-town are you ready?
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!
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!
One thing I love about The Woodlands/Houston is all of the events! There arealways so many things going on. A couple weeks ago, was Wine & Food Week in The Woodlands, TXand H-E-B hosted a Wine Walk throughout Market Street! It was SO much fun and the perfect girl’s night. Not only was there a ton of food and wine, but even the stores had wine inside of them! (I could get used to that!)I had no idea, but apparently this is a yearly thing – so next year if you live this way, you should definitely check it out. I know I will be back for sure!
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.
If there is one thing you should know about me, it’s that I love spa treatments. I am pretty much open to trying anything once. Glo Sun Spa in Market Street The Woodlands asked me to collaborate with them and I thought Yeah! I love a great spray tan, why not. I decided to take a look at their site and saw that Glo offered so much more than just spray tans.
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!
