♥ ready to pop!


photos by lei ann

this past saturday, i met with my oldest and dearest blogger friends to
celebrate my burgeoning baby bump over endless rounds of dessert
at the langham hotel's chocolate bar! it was super delicious and such 
a treat to spend time with my favorite ladies.

at 38 weeks, my bump is on and poppin' and i have fully embraced
my round shape! this forever 21 dress is from my last pregnancy with henry,
and i was so glad to have an occasion to wear it again :)

i updated it with my favorite new kitty bag from aldo (similar!) as well as some
fabulous pink accessories: my faux gucci slides and quay sunnies!
my necklaces are a mashup old f jcrew cuts rhinestone collars as
well as a big heart from betsey johnson. all in all, i felt festive
and totally ready to taste all the yummy treats without
constriction! stay tuned for another blog post
featuring what i ate and saw at
cafe fleuri!

♥ i love it when we're cruising together: an evening at CambridgeSide with the Charles Riverboat Company!

hello loves! 
long time, no post!
and getting through the rest of this awful, dragged-out winter. 
how about you?

thankfully, with this week's arrival of the long-overdue spring weather,
came an opportunity to to shop, sip, and sail with my favorite boston bloggers at the
 currently-being-made-over- CambridgeSide and the Charles Riverboat 

along with an interactive scavenger hunt through the enormous mall-
there was a lovely cruise on the charles river with unbeatable views,
on the loveliest day, ever!


how cute is this boat?? it reminds me of the wonkatania!

 at 37 weeks pregnant, i was nervous at the thought of
being on the water for too long in case something happened-
but i rest assured, knowing that we would only be on the river for a little
over an hour :) it was what my girl, lei ann, called a "babymoon cruise!"



the views were spectacular! i could not get enough of the setting sun on the water.


for my ootd, i piled on a couple of my signature accessories and added them
to my not-so-little black dress situation that i have had to wear at work.
i can't wait to share all my costume jewels with my little girl :)

♥ skincare review with NATURA BISSE!

ever since i saw john mayer's funny skincare routine snaps last summer,
i have been wondering what the natura bisse brand is all about.

according to john, its "mainly used by people in their 60's and 70's,"
but i would argue that this skincare line is actually for anyone looking
to brighten and revitalize the skin their in!



i was recently sent some of the latest products from
natura bisse's essential shock intense line, and i must say that they
 have been a welcome addition to my ever-evolving skincare routine.


the essential shock intense mask smells delicious and has me looking like
a geisha for 10-15 minutes, before washing it off for a smooth & polished glow!

the essential shock intense complex is a fabulous serum that layers on lightly
underneath my everyday moisturizer, and has been helping to maintain my skin's
hydration and clarity- even in the dead of winter! it is great that i can apply
my makeup right over it, without feeling like i have too much gunk
on my face.
 

ps. did you know that for the first time, natura bisse will be coming to MA
to introduce their "mindful touch" spa experience (usually reserved for celebrities during
the past 12 academy award ceremonies!) to the public?
