February: Life Lately

the first forty days bookI say this every year but February truly FLEW BY!!! I mean, here we are in March and I can officially say I’m due NEXT MONTH?! What? How did that happen? Here’s a little about what I’ve been up to this month:

Listening to: Oprah SuperSoul Conversations podcast & Justin Timberlake’s new album, both on Spotify (I’m a HUGE fan of Spotify)! I love to listen to Oprah’s podcast on my way to work in the morning! SUCH inspiration. And reminders that we are in charge of our attitude in this life.

Reading: The First Forty Days… here and there. Third trimester exhaustion has been setting in after work and reading puts me straight to sleep. 🙂 This book is so insightful though and is a must for any new mom to read!

Shopping for: Spring shoes like these ones and these ones! Also, definitely have baby clothes on the brain as well as Ava’s spring wardrobe. Zara has been a total score lately for her!

Watching: Mad Men on Netflix! Late to the game, we know but Nic and I aren’t huge TV fans except for that we like to have a show to watch after Ava goes to sleep! We are at the end of Season 2!

Wearing: Basically anything that fits at this point (I’m 33 weeks now)! Living in leggings, flats, tunics, and oversized sweaters.

Loving: My current skincare routine which has been helping my pale/dry/hormonal skin tremendously this winter! I’ve been religiously using the bareMinerals Ageless Genius line and have recently tried the new Elemis Superfood line and love particularly how it smells! I’m also currently using the best Aveda Shampure shampoo/conditioner. Makeup-wise, my new Too Faced Born This Way foundation is giving me the extra coverage I need right now.

Working on: Potty training sweet Ava! It’s going well so far! She was definitely more than ready! Also, starting to hang some things on the wall in the baby’s room!

volunteers of america thrift store^^ I picked up the cutest things from Volunteers of America Thrift Store – a few skirts and sweaters that I can’t wait to wear when I’m not pregnant! My total bill was $14.99 for 2 sweaters, a purse, and 3 skirts! Some J. Crew & GAP!

sky organics bath box^^ These bath bombs from Sky Organics quickly became our favorite things to entice Ava into the bath!!! She loved picking out which color she wanted to use and throwing it in the bath! Plus, we loved how it made our entire bathroom smell like a spa for hours!!!
