Maternity Dressing with Pink Blush Maternity

Today’s post is was supposed to go up yesterday, but due to the devastating results of the election, I needed to take a day to really regroup and get myself back to a good place mentally before I did anything else. Being pregnant has forced me to think outside of myself, and for the health and happiness of my soon to be baby, I didn’t want to pass on any negative energy her way by being upset or angry. (If only we could all be so loving to ourselves all the time, pregnant or not, am I right?) So I didn’t watch tv or immerse myself in the social media storm that was taking place, and I took some time out to meditate. After Adam got out of school I spent time playing with him, and then later I met a girlfriend for dinner. The day passed, I felt better, and life, as they say, goes on.

I’m still gathering my thoughts on the topic so I may post something about the election, but at this time what I’m writing about it is strictly for my personal journal and my eyes only.

On a happy note, for today’s post I’m excited to partner with Pink Blush Maternity. A friend of mine who recently had a baby recommended the brand to me – she loved their line so much. After testing them out for myself, I couldn’t agree more! I’ve been wearing my Pink Blush Maternity distressed denim and trouser pants almost every day since I got them. This dress (on sale!) I was saving for our family photos, I love how it has long sleeves and a pretty drape that really flatters the form. I also picked up this robe for after delivery.

  • Slightly terrified because I just hit publish on a new YouTube video where I am completely makeup free (and possibly too close up - nose hair close 😬) reviewing the new clean skincare line @oneoceanbeauty that I have been testing for the past 8 weeks. I thought about not posting the video because watching it brought out a lot of my insecurities - about aging and wrinkles, my asymmetrical face, my unfortunate eyebrows - but I decided to do it because I love seeing other women who are confident and comfortable in their own makeup free skin and I want to be that too! 🙌🏾 #cleanskincare #cleanbeauty #skincareroutine

  • When at least one of us is looking at the camera, it’s a win 🙌🏾 Also, I’m holding the rocks she collected for her - lol - We are staying cozy  inside today, carving pumpkins and watching movies ~ a Sunday well spent 💕 what are you all up to? #mommyandme #pumpkinpatch #fallthings
  • #flashbackfriday Scrolling through my iCloud and came across this family picture shot by @jorellegates. Two thoughts: 1) I can’t believe how teeny my babies are And 2) we need to take more family pictures! Do you guys get professional family pics done? If yes, how often? With Adam we did it every season but now we can’t seem to get our act together ~ even for someone who takes pictures constantly I can’t seem to do it 😔 #fambam #momswithcameras
  • Thinking about what my next YouTube video should be? I’m thinking of organizing my kitchen/pantry/junk drawer (for some good old organization porn) - or a Fall outfit look book featuring only stuff I already own (restyled) and the only new stuff would be thrifted? Which would you want to see first?? Let me know! #tgif #styleinspo
  • Sophie’s face whenever I try to take her picture - either that or she’s running away 😑 Today we took a spontaneous trip to the pumpkin farm ~ I got my fill of apple cider donuts - which is the real reason why I love to go tbh - but the real question is which are your fave, glazed or cinnamon/sugar??? #momswithcameras #pumpkinpatch
  • Last nights look for a little soirée with the @urbandecaycosmetics team! What could be better than a night of makeup and pizza??? I’ll wait... #udallnighter #chicagoblogger #makeupparty
  • Smiling because a new YouTube video is now live on my channel! Sharing how I meal prepped this week’s lunch - it is a really easy beef stew recipe - (it’s also a really good veggie stew if you don’t eat meat!) Hope you guys enjoy! Also hooray for wool hat weather! 🙌🏾 #newvideo #youtube #mealprep
  • #flashbackfriday to a preppy Zahra in college (when I worked at Hollister 🙃) and polo shirts were life - also my parents had that plaid couch for a decade and that treadmill was NEVER used. Lastly, thick eyebrows weren’t cool yet FYI. #TGIF #goodtimes
  • A peek inside my ‘creative mess’ aka my office where I finally finished editing a new YouTube video  it’s a quick (under 5 minute) makeup tutorial using a lot of new @ctilburymakeup I recently picked up (and btw absolutely LOVE)- for a really fresh ‘enhanced natural’ face. Hope you enjoy!
