I’ve been happily married since December 20th of last year. My husband and I weren’t expecting to get pregnant so easily but we are so excited for our little bundle of joy. I graduated last April in business management at UVU and I’m so happy I finished my degree before becoming a mom. I like to do crafts, blog, find great deals, and read in my free time.
I met my husband on an accidental blind date. My friend told me we were going to go hang out with a bunch of guys at the pool and the only two that showed up was the guy she was into and my husband. He played a little hard to get so we didn’t hit it off right away but within a couple of months we were inseparable!
My baby is due November 26, 2012 and it’s a boy!
My number one beauty essential would have to be my lancome eyelash curler. My eyes look super teeny tiny when my eye lashes aren’t curled! My eyelash curler gives my eyes that extra pop so they don’t look so tiny and sad!
My favorite go to look since I’ve been pregnant would have to me a maxi skirt, basic top, vest, and a belt around my waist. I love belting my waist to make my bump stand out even more than it already does.
My short chambray top definitely gets worn the most. It ties right under my boobs and makes my bump stand out with any other thing I decide to wear it with.
I wish I had some sort of style icon but I really don’t. My sense of style is sort of my sixth sense and I know what does and doesn’t flatter my body. Don’t get me wrong, I really love looking through magazines and other blogs for ideas and inspiration though!
It’s a tie between Penelope Cruz and Natalie Portman. I think they’re both absolutely gorgeous and look great with all sorts of different hair styles, make up, etc.
The best advice I’ve gotten since I got pregnant is to take it one day at a time and enjoy life!
I think it’s really hard for women to truly feel beautiful and comfortable in their skin when their body is dramatically changing. I would like to let My Chic Bump readers know that pregnancy is a beautiful and amazing thing. Sometimes there are negative or unpleasant side effects but I know once your little baby comes out everything that you’ve gone through to get to that point is worth it!
I wanted to keep some sort of journal of my outfits and watch my style grow. A lot of my friends complemented me and liked the way I dressed. I would get numerous questions from both friends and strangers about where I purchased an item or how I styled an outfit. I thought that starting a public blog would be a fun hobby and maybe help some friends and readers along the way.
I would describe my style as unpredictable. I don’t have a certain set style I like to dress however I’m feeling that day, sometimes it’s sweats and a t shirt other times it’s all dolled up.
My favorite places to shop are thrift stores, Forever 21, Urban Outfitters (clearance of course), and online boutiques.
The most rewarding thing about blogging is inspiring others and making friends all over the globe!
