I am so, so excited to be sharing this post with all of you!! This is now my first official post as a Mama! Margaux arrived, Friday, April 19th (4 days early from my original scheduled C-Section!!!). It still amazes me that Steve and I are a family of three now. She is something we have dreamed about for so long and I cannot even describe the feeling. I wanted to share our newborn photos with all of you!
I wanted to hop on here for what is probably my last post before Baby Margaux arrives! It’s crazy to think this time next week she will be in my arms, finally! I’ve gathered some of my favorite products that have worked best for me. Total honesty, this has not been an easy 9 months, so anything that has helped me feel even a little more comfortable has been a lifesaver for me.
I am beyond excited and ready for baby Margaux to be here! It feels like we just had the baby shower in January and now her nursery is finally complete. I wanted to keep with the theme of elegant and girly so there are a lot of florals, white and blush tones. Margaux definitely has the cutest room in the house. Steve and I are very excited to be able to bring her home in just five weeks. I just know this will be the perfect space for her when she is finally here!
Bonjour Baby Margaux! I have been getting so many inquiries about the event so I wanted to create this blog post to showcase all of the fun. Last Saturday my closest friends and family gathered at Neiman Marcus’ Mariposa Room for my baby soiree. It was the most perfect day and was everything I imagined and more!
I wanted to hop on here and share a little secret with all of you! Since I announced my pregnancy EVERYONE has been telling me I am glowing. I have been getting so many compliments on my skin. Even though I am so thrilled about baby girl, I have to admit I suspect the glow is actually from my skincare routine! So, now that the secret is out I want to take you through the products I love so much.
Happy Tuesday everyone! It’s crazy that we are already getting ready to celebrate Thanksgiving. November and December always seem to fly by so quickly, don’t they? Before we know it, we will be getting ready for New Years! To me, one of the best parts about this time of year is the opportunity to spend time with friends and family. I always try to remember these are the times you should cherish. Although holidays can be stressful, especially if you are the hostess, there are a few tips to avoid that anxiety. I have learned over many years of event planning the best ways help things run smoothly and to even enjoy yourself as a hostess!
One of the many reasons I love Fall is the fashion that comes with it. We have been waiting for some cooler weather here in Las Vegas and it looks like it’s finally arrived. Now fingers crossed that it stays! For anyone that knows me, they know I love dresses and they know I love ASOS. Free two-day shipping has changed my life and Steve, my husband, says we get a new delivery from ASOS every two days. It’s an addiction! I’ve rounded up my favorite fall dresses for to check out.
Hey everyone! I just got back from a few summer trips but something I have been so exicted to share with all of you are my new Instagram highlights! I collaborated with the wonderful Theresa Kelly Art to do something a little different than the typical highlight. I really wanted to do something that was different and something that was very me! Here are my top tips for making your instagram highlights stand out:
- Find your Voice: This is something that is SO important in all aspects of your Instagram and blog, if you have one. Your biggest power is being you and this is something you should always focus on. Your voice should translate to all aspects including your highlights.
- Make your highlights specific to you: It is always easy to do whatever everyone else does, but you should make your highlight categories specific to what you want to feature. Make your highlights unique to you and your voice, as that will encourage people to click on them.
- Customize them yourself: Make sure to make your own highlights! This is something that can be done on Photoshop or Canva or even Wordswag. It is important to create your own so they are distinct and recognizable.
- Keep it Simple: This is something that is always easier said than done but a simple, clean design will always look best in those little circles! Don’t overthink it and go with what feels like the most you from a design standpoint.
Straightforward things like your highlights on Instagram can elevate you above the rest whether you are an influencer or a business. Making yours simple but different, and something that emphasizes your voice, is key.
