What's in my hospital bag

With just over a week until my due date I figured it was time to share whats in my hospital bag!
I am not one to pack the kitchen sink. I like to be a bit more thoughtful and not pack too many non-essentials. So I am hoping with my experience I can give some mamas good ideas for what they might need. Just remember the hospital usually provides most of what you need so everything else is just gravy on top! 

In this picture I am showing my LV keepall which is what all of my things are in. The pink bag is from Fawn Design and its for baby and anything extra. 


I haven't listed every single thing I have packed but I have shared my favorite things.

Maternity Photo Shoot

Hello Luvs! I am sooo excited to share this amazing photo shoot with you! Can you believe this is my fourth pregnancy and this is the first time I am doing this?! So crazy to believe! And since this will be my last, I am trying to really live it up! One of the best parts of this pregnancy is being able to share it with my kids. It has truly made it that much more special. Thats why I knew I had to include them and of course le hubby in this shoot as well! 

The white dress I am wearing for most of the shots is from Fillyboo 
And the black dress with the long train is from KKB maternity 
I used basic flower crowns from Forever 21 and added flowers from Joanns to make them one of a kind!

30 weeks update

It's so crazy to believe I am 30 weeks along already with baby number four! 

I wanted to give you guys a quick update on how it is going with this pregnancy. I know with Instagram and social media, it can look so glamorous and perfect but that is hardly the case. I love one moms bio on her IG feed saying "I only show you what I want you to see". This seriously struck a cord with me because it's so true. In a way my social media is a bit of an escape and a way to "glamorize" my life. I guess there are times where my life might be a bit glam but its mostly, carpool lanes in sweat pants and racing off to the next thing on the schedule. It actually seems like I am either looking like a homeless crazy lady, or I'm dressed to the nines with a full face of makeup. lol

For this pregnancy I am trying with all my might to soak it up. Which seems like a challenge with how hectic our lives are. I wouldn't change anything except for more time together, which I feel like we can never have enough of. One thing that has taken us longer than any other pregnancy is picking a name for baby. We STILL don't have a name picked for sure but we are getting really close. Richard laughs and says maybe we should wait until he is born and then choose. I respond with my laser stare, saying "you have got to be joking!" I am not the type of person to leave something like that up in the air! 

My body is definitely starting to feel the gravity of this sixth pregnancy (including my two miscarriages).  I have an almost "rash like" varicose vein maze on my right leg that is constantly throbbing. I am supposed to be wearing compression socks all the time but lets be real, mama still wants to rock a cute short lace dress and not wear knee high socks with it! My sister in law had the same thing on both of her legs and they went away after she delivered so I am praying mine will disappear as well. Another crazy thing is SLEEP or lack there of. In between having to get up and pee and my wild hormonal dreams, that help me sleep like a wild cat in water, AND the kids having ear infections and bad dreams lets just say I try and sneak in as many naps as possible. Other than that baby is healthy and happy kicking up a storm and I am in good health. So really, I could not ask for more!

I also wanted to let you guys know that I will be sharing on my YouTube channel, all the baby essentials that we have gotten for baby so make sure and check that out and subscribe!

Nighttime skincare routine

Hey luvs! I thought I would share my nightly skincare routine and all the products that I currently use. See a step by step guide down below:
Step one: I use this oil free makeup remover by Neutrogena on my eyes but only if I went for a more dramatic eye look that day. It just makes the makeup melt away and is so gentle on my eyes, which I love.
Step two: For any leftover makeup on my face, I use this cleansing oil by Juice Beauty. It is so gentle on the skin, it completely takes away any makeup or dirt on my face without drying it out. My skin is left feeling clean but hydrated at the same time. 


Step three: Next step is this serum by California clean. This is a new company to me but so far I am really loving it. I have been using this Apple Stem Cell Regenerating serum for a few weeks now before my moisturizer and have noticed a GLOW and a more even skin tone because of it! I love that this whole line is made with natural and sustainable ingredients and safe for pregnant women to use! 



Step four: After the serum, I use this Drink up intensive overnight mask by Origins. I love how this product basically gets me through the dry winter months. It is super hydrating, and at only $26 I can't get enough!

Step five: Next my eye treatment, I have been really liking this Tarte Maracuja C Eye Treatment I have noticed my under eyes have been smoother when I apply my concealer and they look brighter as well.  

Step six: Last but not least, the lips! My lips get super dry in the winter so this Vaseline lip therapy is a life saver! It keeps my lips protected, hydrated and it has a rosy tint to it, which is so flattering. 

I truly enjoy skin care and taking care of my skin! Hope you enjoyed this post and found it helpful!
