Current Beauty Favorites

Happy Weekend!

Today I wanted to pop on the blog to share with you a few of my favorite beauty products that I am loving at the moment. Since I am currently about to explode baby, it’s been important for me to have a few things in my medicine cabinet that make me feel good, even when I am really not feeling that great – which is pretty often as the end of this pregnancy comes to a close.

But sometimes a little pampering is all this mama needs to put a little pep in my step! So here are a few things that I am currently loving at the moment – check them out and let me know what you think!


Beauty Favorites

My hair has been all sorts of crazy during my second pregnancy! Pair that with being outside + in the pool/beach all summer with my one year old and it’s a recipe for disaster!  So I was very excited to get to try out the CLEAR SCALP & HAIR™ Intense Hydration Nourishing Shampoo and Nourishing Daily Conditioner, which I’ve been using for for past few weeks. I am usually pretty picky about the right shampoo and conditioner for my hair – I don’t want anything that’s going to leave my hair greasy but I also something that will work with my naturally wavy hair, but also still protect it and make it feel fabulous when I want to wear it straight.

The summer is a great time to try out a new shampoo + conditioner in your life because your hair really gets put to the test between the sun, the heat, the pool + the beach – all the crazy elements that will mess with your hair! I loved the CLEAR SCALP & HAIR products because I really felt like it kept my hair soft and hydrated!

Side Note: The  Intense Hydration Nourishing shampoo + conditioner is infused with cactus extract, a known hydrator. floral bump My Hair also felt really strong – I’m sure all the prenatal vitamins I’ve been taking help too, but my hair has been growing like crazy and even though I don’t “do” my hair everyday, even when I just let it dry naturally after a shower and don’t put anything in it, it’s still silky, smooth and easy to wear.

And I love how, like the name of the product, the CLEAR SCALP & HAIR™ brand really focuses on scalp health to promote, strengthen and nourish hair growth. Makes sense since the scalp is really the foundation for strong, beautiful hair! haircut

 CLEAR SCALP & HAIR™ products are available at and for a suggested retail price of $4.99 – $5.99

Special K® Red Berries

Tracking Pixel

Cereal has pretty much been my world these last few weeks of pregnancy {which have been pretty rough}

Between the heat, being exhausted {+ not wanting to cook or turn on the oven} and my insane heartburn, some days cereal is all I really want and other days, its all I can force myself to eat. It’s crazy because I’m hungry and need to eat {because I’m over here making life!} but my body literally won’t let me.

Not fun.

Luckily, I am a big {huge, even} cereal lover.

I was so excited when I had the opportunity to try out the new Special K Red Berries cereal. It’s pretty much the perfect breakfast in the summer or a great mid-afternoon snack. I love the crunch of the classic Special K cereal – it’s always been a favorite of mine. Now that it adds in one of my favorite fruits, it makes it even more enjoyable. I also love the fact that the strawberries taste really fresh – they get soft and delicious when the milk hits it and I sort of love it!


The Special K Red Berries cereal is amazing with milk, perfect in a little baggie as a snack and also awesome over yogurt for a little bonus crunch. I can’t get enough and Brooks loves to share it with me {aka steal it all}.

Side Note: If you have any other fun ways you enjoy cereal, I’d love to hear it!


Did I mention Special K Red Berries is made with whole grains and real strawberries, it’s also full of  fiber, folic acid and vitamin D. Win, win. win! Especially for us pregnant mamas out there that folic acid + fiber is a real treat to have in our cereal. Nice to have that first thing in the morning!



Now it’s your turn to share – 

What’s your favorite go-to cereal!

Get Cruisin’

We are in a pretty serious place in terms of diapers. I have to say that I am not at all interested in doing the whole potty training thing anytime soon – with a newborn on the horizon and all that goes along with that {and coming to the realization that I won’t be sleeping anytime soon}. Sure, we talk about what you do on the potty {not sure I am loving that word so much as I type it!} and we even got Brooks the most adorable training chair ever {it was my mom’s 60+ years ago! I’m obsessed with it in my bathroom} I’m currently happy with doing the whole diaper thing for a while, until we get the whole “two under two” thing down pat – THEN we can worry about the whole nighttime potty break wake-ups!


Until then we are really loving the new Pampers Cruisers. These bad boys feature extra absorbing channels which help distribute wetness evenly. They also stays drier and don’t sag like ordinary diapers {based on size 4 vs. leading value brand} I personally just love the Pampers’  fit and protection, it has worked really well for Brooks, especially since he has really started moving and shaking these last few months – he totally needs a diaper that’s going to cruise along with him!


I feel like with diapers, when you find a brand and a fit that works for your little’s body, you just go with it. Pampers has been great for us so far, we’ve been really happy with them – I can’t wait to get the new guy to get in the Swaddlers because those were all sorts of awesome when Brooks was a little nugget.

size 4 We were able to pick up our box of Pampers Cruisers at Target {because it is the best store for pretty much everything!} And I’m excited to share with you a fun special that is going on right now for the next few days:

From August 30 – September 5, Buy 2 Pampers Giant Packs {which include Pampers Cruisers and Pampers Swaddlers} Get $10 Gift Card

This offer is available in store and online.

Friday Favorites: Summer to Fall

We’ve had a small {teeny tiny} taste of Fall in Philly the past few mornings + evenings and it’s been all sorts of amazing. I am so ready for that cool, crisp Fall weather, I can’t stand it. It’s been a nice little treat with the weather toning down, even just a bit – it still goes to 85 – 90* during the day {with crazy humidity} but even so, the brief taste of cooler temperatures has me longing for Fall and oh so ready to bust out my autumn wardrobe.

It will be extra exciting because when Fall really gets into full swing, I will have a brand new baby in tow + won’t have to wear exclusively maternity clothes {which I’m currently running out of things that fit!} so that puts a little extra pep in my step too!

Here are a few of my current favorite Summer to Fall picks, check them out and let me know what you think!
