I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not a makeup guru. I love beauty products and I love filming and sharing my routines but I still need practice in getting my makeup to look exactly how I want it to. I’m also very cost-conscious and cannot rationalize spending lots of money on makeup, therefore I’m a little limited in product selection.
Nevertheless, I needed some new products so I headed to my local Walgreens.

Before I had the slightest clue that I was pregnant somehow or another I came across the DockATot. I remember thinking that it was the cutest little thing and such a clever invention. A few months after discovering that I was expecting my first child (I guess the universe was preparing me mentally for the news) the DockATot was at the top of my list of must-have baby items.

Even though stretch marks don’t have the same stigma about them that they used to have, that doesn’t mean that you necessarily want them on your body. As someone who has had stretch marks on my hips and arms since middle school, I’m familiar with how they look, feel and their way of making you a little more self-conscious in certain types of clothing.
My familiarity with them and my desire to want to wear crop tops during the summer really inspired me to take extra care to protect my tummy from getting any during my pregnancy.

I can vividly remember the first ballet class I ever took. I was in the 5th grade and like most little girls, I’d been anticipating joining a dance class for the longest. Space opened up in one of my church member’s classes and my first night (it was a Thursday I believe) marked the first class of a decade long ballet hobby.
Reading Ahni and Her Dancing Secret took me back to those days.
Can you guess one of the first things I did once the reality of being pregnant hit me?
I downloaded an app.
(Don’t judge me…it’s what millennials do, OK?)
Because I’m a first time mom-to-be, I literally knew nothing about the pregnancy experience. I didn’t understand exactly how pregnancies progress, what certain terms meant, what body changes and symptoms I would experience and the list goes on. Downloading a pregnancy app just made sense for me.
I chose to download the What To Expect app because of the popularity of its accompanying website. I downloaded several others but this was the first one I found to be useful – but it’s not without its pros and cons.
