Life Update + Wardrobe Must Have

Hi friends! It's been awhile since I've blogged, but at least it's for some good reasons :)

So here's a quick little update for y'all on our life:

I've been busy growing baby #3 and chasing around those crazy boys of ours. I'm currently 25 weeks with Takoda, Stetson is 1 and Cash is 3. And if you haven't seen our big news we just shared, we are getting ready to move! Our family is heading to Oregon where my hubby will work as a corrections officer at a max prison. This is his first big stepping stone towards becoming a cop and I'm so excited for him to chase after this career.

All of you know that we absolutely love our life here in Kim, Co. We have loved living this lifestyle and we are honestly so sad to go. The community here is amazing and I don't think we'll ever find a place quite as wonderful, but with baby #3 on the way, we are trying to think about our families future. We are still in our early twenties but with my husband wanting to become a cop, there is no better time for him to start this process.

I'm also trying to figure out a good balance of being private online while also still trying to blog and do this whole Instagram influencer thing. Since D will be working in a prison, I've been trying to make all of my social media profiles more private and probably won't be mentioning his name or our last name for the sake of protecting our family. :)

So, I'll be flying out at the beginning of November with the boys and D will be moving our stuff. It's going to be a big life change for sure, but we're so excited for what's to come. :)

So there's our little life update for y'all. But enough about me, I have to share about this cardigan I received from Pink Blush


Have you ever shopped at Pink Blush?! Their stuff is to die for. I used to think they only had maternity clothes, but they carry regular women's clothes, kids clothes, maternity and more. You should go check them out if you haven't before. I know so many of y'all that love their stuff. 

This cardigan is definitely my new favorite staple piece in my wardrobe now. I'm so excited that I can wear it while I'm pregnant and after (plus since it's a cardigan it's nursing friendly for any outfit #momwin).

I love a piece that can be worn year round. It's light enough to be comfortable when it's warm yet it still keeps me cozy during these cooler temperatures. It's so perfect, you guys!

These are my favorite ways to style this simple and cute cardigan with items I already had in my wardrobe which was a huge thing for me. I don't buy myself new clothes often, so it's great getting to throw together multiple outfits with what I had on hand and spruce them up with one adorable piece of clothing. 
(Also a huge shout out to one of my friends for sending this adorable dress in these pictures above. You know who you are. <3 )

But I hope you guys check them out and see all the cute stuff they have. I can't express how much I love this cute little cardigan enough. I've worn it so much already and can't wait to wear it after baby boy is born too. 

I hope you guys are having a great week and I'm so happy you stopped by here!

How to Become an Influencer + Collab with Companies

If you want to become an influencer and start collaborating with companies, keep reading! I share my journey as an influencer so far and all that I've learned. Hopefully this can help you get started :)
I'm going to apologize in advance if this is all over the place. Hahaha. Blogging while your needy sick toddlers are around isn't the easiest and I've thought of a million different things I want to talk about as I've been writing, so this may seem a bit scatterbrained. Lol. But hopefully this can help some of y'all that have wanted to start doing this! I enjoy being honest with you guys and hope that you all know how thankful I am for every one of you that I have connected with online!

If you've been following me on Instagram for awhile, you'll know that I haven't been doing this for a long time. In fact, my first collaboration wasn't even until around April of this year, so I've only been doing this for around 9 months. I'm still very …

Bloomlife Pregnancy Tracker + Contraction Monitor Review

I can't believe that as of today I am 34 weeks pregnant. This pregnancy has flown by and we are so close to meeting our third son! I've had the opportunity to try a product recently that has been incredible and I'm so excited to share about it with you guys. I'll be sharing about the Bloomlife contraction monitor in this post and sharing my honest review.

Most of you know this is my third pregnancy. Now, I'm no expert at motherhood and pregnancy, but I do have some experience since this is my third time around. With my first two sons, I never felt any Braxton Hicks. Braxton Hicks are contractions that occur before real labor. They are normal to experience and they are not a sign that you're about to give birth. I like to think of them as the bodies way of preparing for labor. They can start fairly early in your pregnancy and you might not even know that you're experiencing them.  (A good thing to remember about Braxton Hicks and real labor contractions is …

Instagram Tips + Tricks

So you want to increase your engagement on your posts? Perhaps you have a small business and you feel like your posts aren't getting seen? Or maybe you're a mom like me trying to do this whole influencer thing and want your engagement to be better? I'm sharing some tips and tricks that I've learned along the way to help you out and teach you how to best use Instagram.

It would be nice if Instagram weren't all about numbers, but let's not kid ourselves. It is. Most people want to reach the 10k mark so they have the swipe up feature for their followers. And a lot of companies tend to reach out to accounts with large followings. It makes sense, it's business. But don't let it get you down. I myself have 5k followers and I'm not letting that keep me from trying to grow my page and get out there.

So, let's talk engagement real quick. If you don't know what engagement means, I'll break it down for you. A lot of companies that work with influe…
