Building a Baby Registry

Heart and Camera | Baby Registry

When it comes to picking out what you will need for your newborn, there are so many options for parents from clothing to gadgets to make things easier. It can be really overwhelming. As a first time mom, I wasn’t sure where to begin. I know it took me a long time to build a registry I was comfortable with and there were still times I would discover something new and substitute one item for another. I did lots of research…

Bump Style // Spring in PinkBlush Maternity + Giveaway

Heart and Camera | Bump Style

It is officially Spring! It always makes me feel like new beginnings. This year, of course, Spring means we are almost ready to welcome our baby! I’m also growing what feels like daily and comfort is key. That is why I’m so in love with this dress from PinkBlush Maternity. I have been very selective with maternity clothing throughout my pregnancy. At this point, I mostly want to wear dresses. I’ve wanted to add a maxi dress to my rotation and this cute maternity maxi…

Recipe // Strawberry Milk

I can’t say I’ve really had any cravings during this pregnancy. Thankfully for my husband, there haven’t been any late night runs to the 7 Eleven for items that should never be paired together. But I can say that there are times I see something and think- “That’s exactly what I want right now!” Recently, I had that happen with strawberry milk. I saw strawberry milk somewhere and thought it sounded absolutely delicious. And I wasn’t talking about adding powder…

32 Weeks // Embracing the Unknown

I never thought I’d be one of those women who is comfortable taking photographs with an exposed belly. I love seeing images of beautiful pregnant mamas and their bellies full of life, I just never thought I would be comfortable with it for myself. But here I am in all my pregnant glory. The bump is getting larger, the baby kicks are getting stronger and, surprisingly, I’m loving my bare bump. The transformation in my body has really been shocking. Sometimes I walk…

Bump Style // Everyday Casual

The bump continues to grow and I’ve really started to embrace it in my everyday style. The bigger I get the easier it is to feel  and look frumpy depending on what I’m wearing. Although I’ve kept my maternity clothes purchases to a minimum, I have invested in several maternity shirts that give me enough room to feel comfortable but form fitting enough to keep me looking put together. Asos maternity is great for everyday shirts like in this outfit. I did purchase…

Happy New Year! 2016 is literally around the corner. But before it gets here, I wanted to share this fantastically easy recipe that looks so beautiful to ring in the new year. While researching desserts for an earlier post, I came across this recipe on Instagram and it looked simple enough. I am not great at baking so anything I try needs to be beginner level. Plus my husband loves any apple related desserts. An internet search on how to recreate…

Travel // Morning in Saint Germain

Heart and Camera | Paris Diary

I couldn’t close out the year without sharing more photos from our trip to Paris. I was delayed in sharing these and as November 13th rolled around, I just didn’t have the heart to post them until now. I have such fond memories of this trip. Although it was planned far in advance, it turned out to be our “babymoon.” This particular day we spent the morning walking around Saint-Germain-de-Pres which was the neighborhood we were staying in. We got an early start…

Heart and Camera | Bump Style

Less than a week ’til Christmas! We haven’t finished our shopping yet. I have lots of wrapping to get done. It’s actually been cold in LA and I am not complaining. After the heat wave of Summer, it’s nice to bundle up a bit, especially for the holidays. For our latest shopping trip I needed comfort to keep me going. I have been loving these H&M maternity joggers. They are so comfortable. I also have to highlight this shirt. When we…

To kick off the holiday season I made a video tutorial on how I decorate my tree. From lights, to ribbon, to ornaments, I’m giving you a peak into how I make my Christmas trees sparkle.…
