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.
Underground returned to our television screens Wednesday night with it’s Season 2 premiere episode, “Contraband.” I was so excited to see this show back on the air because it wasn’t just entertaining, it gave valuable insight on the history of slavery in America – insight I’d never been exposed to through television.
Can you say…HERE FOR IT?!
A couple of months ago I received my first box from Bump Boxes and one of the products that immediately caught my eye was the under eye treatment (click here to read about everything else that was inside). I struggle with dark circles under my eyes and severe puffiness, most of which is genetics, and nothing seems to help reduce either issue.
ToGoSpa offers several variations of their under eye treatments, but the one I used was their Coconut EYES which they’ve coined as “The Tropical Staycation.”
