Almay New Smart Shade

Almay Smart Shade

I am not an avid user of different shades/foundation, I stick to what I know and where my comfort zone is, which is my Armani silk foundation. But when Almay sent me their new Smart Shade to try, I could not resist! Because who wouldn’t want to try a foundation, that adjusts to your skintone? It is not your typical foundation, it almost seems like you are applying a moisturizer that adapts to your skintone, and leaves your complexion looking flawless and natural! This foundation comes only in three shades and no more, all you need to know is where yours skin fits within those, light, light-medium (that’s my shade), medium. I love that this skintone matching makeup, leaves my skin looking natural all day, and doesn’t feel or look like I am wearing a layer of makeup. This is definitely a beauty product I would recommend all year round, which is why I have it in my bag, ready to fly to Barcelona with me;) Because that is where I am headed to today, will keep you all posted on Barcelona my travels and my baby bump;)!

Another week, a new list of Maternity picks;) Isabella Oliver is a UK maternity line, which I have fallen in love with. It truly embodies an essence of chic comfort for us mother’s to be, to not only feel comfortable but keep up with our style (for those of us who care of course)! Since my due date is early Fall, I have already eyed my Fall garments from their pre-collection, and these pieces have got me covered;)

Comfy Chic

As the weeks pass by, (I won’t lie) it gets harder and harder to keep up, and post on the blog, especially since I am planning my Barcelona trip (can’t wait to be back home)! But if you want to keep up with my adventures please follow me on Instagram! If you already follow me on it, you would know by now that these Nike Athea Air Maxx are my latest splurge (and I literally cannot take them off), you would also know that my style is a bit compromised due to my growing belly therefore dresses are my best friend;) This high low dress from Target is easy breezy, which is why this comfy chic look works to perfection for my evening city strolls with my hubby;)

Washington DC Men's Style Men's Style

My hubby’s style is one of the many wonderful traits that made me fall for him:) Here he is answering work emails (or texting friends about soccer;) While he was busy doing that I managed to steal a few shots, to share his casual style with all of you! I’m tempted to get those Converse high tops for myself

My 10 Maternity Style picks from SHOPBOP

For us pregnant ladies it isn’t always simple to find garments that we can wear comfortably yet stylishly, and if you are anything like me those curves don’t make it any easier;) So I have taken it upon myself to search and research for the best options and of course share it with all of you. Shopbop has definitely been one of my favourite destinations this pregnancy, they really have a quality variety of Maternity garments, that I can also wear post pregnancy! One of the best maternity lines they carry is HATCH, their designs and fabrics are beautifully chic, and this summer they carry these beautiful pastel colors which makes me so happy! Hope you enjoy my picks…

Maternity Shoot

I can’t believe it’s been almost 3 years since our wedding, and we have made it here to this magical moment where we cannot wait to meet our little Love:) And I could not be happier that we have Dominique Fierro capturing these moments, as she so fabulously did on our wedding day! The location she picked was just magical, it was my first time at Great Falls, and I fell in love, the nature and peace that comes with that place is exactly how I envisioned this shoot and this moment for us as a family! I can’t wait to share these beautiful photos with the little one (when she is a little older)… For the occasion I chose a white maxi dress, and probably the most beautiful day this summer, it was not humid, just sunny and with a cool breeze, the bump wasn’t that big but I am happy we didn’t wait till later on in the pregnancy as at the moment I am seriously struggling in this heat…
