In the wake of my "little" news last week, I promise not to overload you with pregnancy-related stuff. BUT, I do want to let all of my fellow preggos in on a lifesaver: The BellaBand.
I've been blessed (so far) that I can still fit into my normal pants. Sort of. I can fit into 'em, but I cannot, for the life of me, button or zip them. Some of my friends who are new moms tipped me off about the BellaBand, and I ran out to buy one.
The BellaBand Everyday (this is the one I have) runs about $28. It's a stretchy ring of fabric that allows you to wear your normal pants - unbuttoned and unzipped - without looking ridiculous. It hides that area of your jeans, all while keeping your tummy under control. It's pretty awesome, and no one can ever tell that I'm wearing one.
I bought mine at Bella Belli in Birmingham, but you can also buy them online HERE, or at Nordstrom.
I'm a snacker. Between waking up at 3:30 in the morning, napping, working out, hanging out with friends, and lunch & dinner, I feel like I'm always grabbing something here & there from my pantry. And usually, I try to be pretty good about what I'm eating ... But the snacks always do me in because all I want is JUNK FOOD!
If you're in the same boat, try THESE! Hi, I'm Skinny Sticks! They're salty, crunchy and so addicting. But ... They're less fattening than chips or candy and contain 19g of whole grains in every serving. A good snack that will satisfy your craving!
Made s'mores last night with some friends, and my sister-in-law came prepared with the most amazing marshamallows in the whole wide world: Jet-Puffed Stacker Mallows.
Have you seen these bad boys? They're HUGE. They literally take over the entire graham cracker, and they're so yummy.
She bought 'em at Target, but I'm sure you can find them at any local grocery store!
I am OBSESSED. This is my "it" product of the moment. I did an event with Dior at Twelve Oaks Mall last week, and they loaded me up with goodies on my way out the door. This Dior Rosy Glow Awakening Blush is the BEST product I've tried in a long time.
It looks scary. I know. Like, bubblegum pink. But it's not. Promise.
What it is: A blush that creates a natural, rosy color on your cheeks ... And it's "one color works for all." Translation: The blush's unique formula adjusts to your skin’s natural chemistry to create a customized look. The shade is flattering on all skintones.
Bonus: It lasts pretty much all day. Such a great solution to buying different blushes for when you're pale vs. tan!
And heads up: Dior also makes a gloss that does the same thing!
