So, I know you have all seen me wear the dress and kimono above, but I’m limited on my clothing options! I refuse to buy anymore maternity clothes! I tried to mix the outfit up a bit by adding the chunky necklace and felt hat! My sister and I bought hats Saturday afternoon because it started pouring and we were freaking out! So, we thought no biggie we will just buy hats! Anything for Taylor! Haha I love felt floppy hats! I wear them all fall/winter! I’ll definitely be rocking hats this fall because washing my hair will be nonexistent with a new born baby and crazy Libbey running around! Can we talk about my makeup for a minute??!! My sister is aaaamazing with makeup!!! I’ve mentioned before that I don’t wear much makeup and I don’t feel like I’m super good at applying it.. Em is a rock star!!! She has soooo much makeup! I wish she could do it for me everyday!! She would love to be a makeup artist! I know she will be one!! She is very talented! I’ll let her use my face for practice any time:) I’m going to post her outfit details on the blog tomorrow! She looked super cute!!

Miss Libbey photo bombed the pic! The girl loves having her picture taken! Two seconds later my mom was pushing her up and down the hotel hallways on the luggage cart! She is a hot mess!

My pictures aren’t very good:( We had aaaamazing seats thanks to my sweet dad who bought us tickets on Chridtmas morning! I have seen Taylor Swift 3 times and have always been so far away! We had floor seats this time!! The lights were so bright, so none of my pics turned out…. But, Andy Grammer came out and sang with Taylor!! So fun!!

Thanks for reading my super long post!

New Beauty Products

Hellooooo!! So, I haven’t done a post about beauty products in a while, so I thought I would update you guys on some of my new products! My sister is makeup obsessed and she is trying to convert me! I’m a clothes girl, but she says it is so worth it to splurge on good beauty products. I’m slowly purchasing a few new items here and there!

20150716-133357.jpg

20150716-133349.jpg
NYX Highlight and Contour Pro Palette: I love love this and highly recommend it! I’m not a contour pro yet, but I’m working on it! I don’t even use my other bronzers now! The palette is fab and so worth the money!

20150716-133852.jpg
Make Up Forever Duo Matte Powder: I’m not completely sold on this. I have been using it for 6 weeks or so and feel like I can find something better! I hear their liquid foundation is fab, so maybe I’ll give that a try! My skin has gone cray cray since becoming pregnant.. I usually have pretty clear and smooth skin. My skin keeps producing little bumps(not pimples?) and is kind of dry and definitely not smooth. If you have any suggestions on products or cleansers let me know!
Maybelline a Dream Fresh BB Cream: So, this is my first ever BB cream… I know I know.. I need to get with it. I really do like it! I thought I would try a cheaper brand and see what the hype is about before I splurge. I use the color medium/deep. When I use this I don’t have to apply a moisturizer before applying my makeup. It has pretty good coverage, but I do feel like it makes me look a little oily throughout the day.

NYX Matte Black Liner: I love this eyeliner! I like liquid liner the best, but when I’m in a hurry this is definitely my go to liner!

20150716-151158.jpg
Lancôme: I’m not sold on this just yet. I have read so many blog posts on how to get thicker lashes and a lot of girls recommend a lash primer/extender. I feel like it makes my lashes stick together after using it a few days in a row.

20150716-151908.jpg
Urban Decay Perversion Mascara: I like this mascara so for! I go between using this and Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara! I will probably buy this product again!

Hope you all have a great weekend! I’m heading to Chicago to go see Taylor Swift with my sister! I’ll probably be the only pregnant girl, but I’m okay with that!

Xoxo,
Amanda

I’m so sorry you guys are seeing me wear this dress again.. You will probably see it a few more times.. Don’t hate me! I’ll change up the accessories:) It is soooo comfortable and works with my growing belly and bum…(this little boy is making me gain weight it different places.. Yikes!)
I thunk I am going to do a makeup post tomorrow! I have purchased a few items in the last month and thought I would do a little review! Changing things up a little!

Have a great day!

You guys! Old Navy is having an amazing sale online! Super cute stuff!! I can’t find my top above, but they have other similar and fabulous options!! I got my top for like $8!! I usually just buy mediums when I’m pregnant! I try not to buy much maternity if I don’t have too! Some of my clothes I wear while I’m pregnant I can wear after too! I don’t feel bad buying items I can wear after! I may have to splurge and buy a fee more maternity items this time around though! This little boy is going to be bigger than his sister I think! I’ve already added a few time from oldnavy.com to my cart!! I’ll definitely be investing in a few more maxi skirts and dresses! They are my go to when I can’t find anything to fit!!!

25 Week Bump Update

Hello!! Sorry for the lack of posts this week.. We have had a crazy busy week! I’ll try to do an outfit post Friday, but today I thought it would be fun to give you guys a bump update!

How Far Along: 25 weeks(26 tomorrow!)

Gender: Boy!!

Stretch Marks: none so far! I didn’t get any with Miss Libbey, so hopefully I don’t this time around. ( I use Palmer’s a Cocoa Butter for stretch mark cream)

Maternity Clothes: I wear them here and there…I have like one pair of capris I can still button, but other than that I live in maxi dresses, maxi skirts, and shorts with a stretch waist band.

Sleep: ugh… I slept much better when I was pregnant with Libbey. I haven’t slept well since I was like 8 weeks along. I’m not uncomfortable at all, I just can’t seem to get in to a deep sleep. Miss Libbey has more teeth coming, so that’s not helping the sleeping situation either.

Cravings: I’ve been craving chicken salad and hamburgers! I didn’t even like chicken salad before I got pregnant with Libbey and then I craved it when I was pregnant with her and I craved it this time too! I’m not much of a meat eater, but for some reason I find myself wanting burgers! So weird!

Belly Button: mainly out! I had my appendix taken out when I was 20 weeks pregnant with Libbey and my belly button had just started to pop out. The doctor had to make 3 different incisions because of the baby and my uterus, so he had to go through my belly button, so when he stitched it up he sewed my belly button like half popping out! I now have a half popped out belly button 24/7!

Exercise: I walk 4-5 days a week with Libbey! We usually do 3-5 miles!

Wedding Ring: Still on!

Swelling: none yet! My feet started to swell around 36 weeks with Libbey.

I’ll try to update you guys again in a month or so! I’ll post a few pictures too!

Check out my Instagram amandajune915 to see outfit pics and the growing bump!

Thanks for reading!

Xoxo,
Amanda

Top: Forever 21(old), this one is very similar!
Skirt: Forever 21(old): like this!
Necklace: Majestically Jewelry(no longer available), love this!
Earrings: Rocksbox(join for a month for a free trial and use my code apickettxoxo)
Bracelet: Brina Box.. No longer available, but I have this one and love it!
I lived in maxi skirts when I was pregnant with Libbey! I was still working, so I had to dress up five days a week!! I’m repeating a lot of the same outfits from my last pregnacy! Oh well!! I have definitely noticed that I have gained my weight in different places this time around. I can totally see a difference in carrying a boy and carrying a girl!! I love everything about it!

Do you guys have any exciting July 4th plans?! We are spending the long weekend out of town with family! Hopefully the rain stays away!

Thanks for reading!

Amanda
