some thoughts on jeans

some thoughts on jeans

I’m wearing the jeans I bought a couple weeks postpartum after having Lucy a couple years ago. My pre-pregnancy jeans didn’t fit; these were two sizes up from my “normal” size. They have since been coined my “postpartum jeans.” Except now, one year after having my second child, these fit me better than my “normal” jeans. Normal being what I used to fit into pre-babies. And what I fit into after babies at one point or another. But now – I think these jeans are my new normal. And that’s okay. It’s okay if your body fluctuates and changes. It’s okay if you don’t fit […]

underwear recommendations

underwear recommendations

I  have been struggling in the underwear department. My body has changed a lot in the last year or so since being pregnant and having Winnie, and my underwear situation is NOT cutting it. I asked my Instagram community to share with my their favorite underwear so I could switch things up and per usual, you guys delivered! I’ve organized the top recommendations (3+ people who mentioned this brand) and a few others below. I’ve already ordered a few new-to-me brands and can’t wait to try out! TOP RECOMMENDATIONS AERIE (Real Me, Seamless, and No Show lines were the top rated) Usually $8-13/each but often […]

Travel Adventures: Weekend Trip to East Tennessee

Travel Adventures: Weekend Trip to East Tennessee

A few weeks ago, we stayed at a cabin in East Tennessee! Over the summer, we did a couple trips with our pod pals / family but haven’t really done any trips in quite awhile and were going pretty stir crazy. This was about 3.5 hours from Nashville so a fairly easy trip for us to make. We found this cabin on Airbnb and wanted to share a few photos from our weekend. We didn’t do much other than enjoy being in a new place, but the hot tub and indoor pool (!!) were definitely two huge bonuses to this space. Being able to drink […]

120+ Black Content Creators with Under 10K Followers

120+ Black Content Creators with Under 10K Followers

A FEW THOUGHTS I’ve been working in the digital marketing space for 10+ years and have led influencer campaigns for many brands. When looking to partner with influencers, often times, the first thing brands/clients look at is the content creator’s follower count. While that is an important consideration for finding partners, I wanted to share more about why brands should not ONLY look at the follower count. Brands often will only look at that number, and rule who will or will not be a good brand partner. But INFLUENCE is so much more than that follower number. Brands can and should look at other data […]

bedside refresh with wayfair

This post is sponsored by Wayfair, a brand I’ve partnered with and shopped from for years. Thanks for reading!  I’ve shared peeks at our bedroom a couple times, mostly on Instagram and most recently in this long blog post talking about our upstairs renovation. When we started our upstairs renovation in November 2019, the plan was for this area to be our guest bedroom, but we quickly loved it so much that we made it our room instead. Here’s what it this space looked like as a guest bedroom! This upstairs is very multifunctional; we have a dormer window office nook, a small living area, […]
