More Things I Love

Hey guys! I know you have all been waiting on pins and needles for my next favorite list, so here it is: there’s no sarcasm there, I swear! : )

  1. Click and Carry is possibly the most clever and helpful gadget ever! Like most moms, I am constantly juggling my purse, the baby bag and a shopping bag or two among other things. Click and Carry makes it so you can carry everything in one hand or on one shoulder. It’s awesome! Even Meyer likes it because she has so many purses and so little time!
  2. Zara Colored Skinny Pants are my favorite go to bottoms and are magical like the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. I swear, I have worn my same favorite red pair while I was at my skinniest and while I was pregnant.
  3. California Tot Rabbit Ears Faux Leather Bow-Stretch Headbands are the cutest most versatile headbands ever. Meyer loves them because they are comfortable and I love them because they are adorable. And once your baby gets a little older and doesn’t want to wear a headband anymore, they serve as a pigtail holder as well.
  4. Apothic Brew Wine is so yummy and different from any wine you have ever had. This red wine is infused with cold brew coffee and you can actually taste it unlike those other ‘hints of berry or chocolate’ reds that just taste like wine…And yes, I do choose to have a glass here and there even though I am pregnant…don’t judge me, I have a two-year old!
  5. Stitch Fix maternity Tank Tops are amazing and can even be worn when you aren’t pregnant. I ordered the set of three (white, black and tan) maternity tanks and have worn them again, at my skinniest (they are long so you can wear them with leggings) and at 9 months pregnant when my belly was ginormous.
  6. Biofreeze Pain Relieving Gel is a blessing in a bottle. I still try to workout at least 3 times a week, whether it is with my resistance bands or P90X and I get so sore afterwards, especially now. This cooling gel feels so good on your sore muscles and will make you feel like normal again fast!
  7. Victoria’s Secret Velvet Matte Lip is the perfect addition to your makeup bag. My favorite color is ‘Adorned’ but it comes in 5 colors to suit you and your skin tone.
  8. Simon and Schuster ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’ Pop Up Book will bring you back to your childhood and keep your kiddos busy for hours. This very detailed pop-up book is based on the classic ‘Alice in Wonderland’ story, not the cartoon (so think more on the scary side if you know what I mean) and is so wonderfully done that I find something new every time I look at it. Meyer is just fascinated with the book but I have to hide it from her because she loves to look at it so much, it started to rip.
  9. Classic Disney DVDs are so fun to watch over and over again with your kids. They are so nostalgic! I know what you are thinking- ‘who still watches DVDs?’ But, we do! Not only do we have a DVD player in the Tahoe (it makes car rides so much smoother), we now have one in our loft. I had bought Moana and Frozen for Meyer to watch and my mom recently whipped out her collection and let Meyer have a few of the classics as well.
  10. Limm Resistance Loop Exercise Bands will keep you trim and tight even if you just use them for 20 minutes a day! If I just have a few moments to myself, or if I want to feel productive while watching TV, I put one on my calves and do my squat reps. They come in 5 different colors/resistance levels from Extra Heavy to Extra Light so even Meyer can ‘workout’ with me!
  11. Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs Spray may look like it is from the 1980’s, but it will make you feel like a million bucks! When my friend introduced me to this can of heaven, I thought, ‘where the hell did you get that, your grandmother’s powder room?’ But wow, let me tell you how amazing this product is. When used on your legs, it hides any veins, blemishes or stretch marks you may have and even makes your legs look thinner! I even use it on my arms to give them an even, tan tone when going sleeveless.
  12. Oregon Chai Tea Latte at Trader Joe’s is so yummy and tastes just like a Chai latte at Starbucks (one of my faves). You just add the concentrated mix to some hot water, top it off with milk and BAM- let your morning begin!
