At 38 weeks and still kicking it.

This happened to be one of my best days I spent with my friend CJ, counting down two weeks or less into having my baby. Clueless on what to wear, I remembered this look I had curated a while back and kept for days like this. I was tired and wasn’t in a mood for a photo shoot but felt better in a second. Maybe that’s what Pregnancy does.

The Restroom at The Collective OKC

We spent the afternoon at The Collective FoodHall OKC and it was one of the most chilled time ever! It was my second time there but definitely enjoyed it even more. We had time to relax, have a good meal, soak up the beautiful space while taking lovely pictures.

The Creams and Nudes make a soft blend, creating a simple, clean and chic look. I was glad to find this Blazer with the detailed gold buttons. Boots comfy, chic and easy to slip on.

Thrifting will always be one of my favorite activities.

Closet Adjustments.

Hello everyone, welcome back! I hope you all are doing great. Thanks for stopping by but if you haven’t yet subscribed to my blog, kindly hit the follow button below at the right side of your screen and let’s stay connected.

My closet needs didn’t change much as I mostly sized up. I avoided the maternity section in stores until there was an absolute need for it.

One thing I did for sure, was clear out my closet in other to accommodate the new items I was going to buy.

I basically spent my days and trimesters in big shirts, skirts and dresses. I hated jeans until it got cold.

I’m glad I didn’t get to spend lots of money and even got irritated when I had to shop for newer items because I realised my bump grew bigger in the space of 2 weeks!!!

I was glad I had big shirts that could accommodate my growing bump but spent money buying sweaters and cardigans in XLs.

I hope you found my blog post helpful especially the expectant moms out there.

Maternity Wardrobe Needs.

Hello everyone, welcome back! I hope you all are doing great. This is a going to be a short blog post but first, if you haven’t yet subscribed to my blog, kindly hit the follow button below on the right side of your screen and let’s stay connected. 31AE7C8D-A3F9-49E4-A600-7138F243B70A

Being pregnant and having to adjust to your wardrobe needs without spending so much money is a huge task. Luckily, I didn’t have to buy a range of maternity clothing during my first and second trimester because I could still fit into most of my dresses, shirts and skirts and got ONE maternity leggings to style with my work shirts. All I did was pull them up above my bump.

I usually sized up if I needed to.

This dress is a very old dress I have had for over 5 years but its style makes it possible to wear with or without a bump.

CJ and I finally got to shoot at a sunflower spot she found. It was a quick and fun shoot.

My Neutrogena Collection.

Welcome back everyone, hope you are doing well. It’s been a hot minute I wrote a blog post on my skincare routine. First, if you haven’t yet subscribed to my blog, kindly hit the follow button below on the right side of your screen and let’s stay connected.

CAVEAT: I must say that I am in no way a skincare expert, neither do I have any training on skincare. This is just me sharing my daily/weekly routine.

Body Oil, Multivitamin Booster and Whipped body balm.

I am a bigger believer and consumer of the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Collection because I have a dry skin and reach out for products that contain Hyaluronic Acid which is a hydrating element.

I have been using Neutrogena products since 2012 before the Hydro Boost Collection launched, and I can attest to these products working perfectly fine with my skin. The body oil has been in y collection since then, and I always mix it with the lotion or cream.

Hydrogel Mask, Watergel Moisturiser, Overnight Mask and Hydrating Cleansing Gel.

However, there are other skincare products I use here and there but these are my constant, daily/weekly routine products that I use and will always be in my collection.

Makeup Cleansing Towelettes and the Deep Clean Gentle Scrub.

The makeup cleansing towelette is super hydrating and moist. You can literally use just one to take away your makeup, leaving your skin hydrated. It doesn’t dry up your skin but adds moisture and hydration while you clean.

The gentle scrub is great on my skin because it is mild and can be used as a daily scrub. Its soft, smooth and rich in texture containing tiny beads.

Liquid-lotion Sunscreen in SPF 30 & Ultra Sheer Body Mist in SPF 45

I enjoyed using these sunscreen in summer, especially the spray bottle as it makes it easier for application.
