There is nothing more beautiful and empowering than creating life.

I was chatting with a good friend this morning and I was having a conversation I have quite often. To be or not to be more personal on my platform. Its a back and forth fight I have with myself A LOT! My start was in fashion so naturally I post about my thoughts and feeling on all things fashion and beauty but what happens in my life drives my style so why not talk about the personal stuff, right?!

Its been months since I first started concepting my nursery room decor. Seeing it all come together has been somewhat emotional for a few reasons. My baby girl is almost here and its becoming so real. A vision come to life is always rewarding.

Seems like just yesterday that I found out I was pregnant and now I am celebrating my baby shower and in 7 short weeks my pregnancy will be coming to an end. The pregnancy hasn’t been all rainbows and sunshine, its been really really hard at times and still is but its made me a stronger person and made me ready for the next chapter that is my life.

It was so lovely to be surrounded by family, friends and so much love. It really made me appreciate how truly lucky I am. I am so happy to be bringing into this world this new little person that will get to know that joy as well.

After this Chloè box arrived on my doorstep…from some pretty amazing ladies, I knew that I was officially ready for my baby girl to arrive. During my pregnancy I have gone thru some many stages that I am finally at the stage where I can’t wait meet her, to know her, and to dress her.

My husband and I have 2 names picked out but we are waiting until she arrives and we can look into her eyes and know which name fits best. We joke that she will arrive and she will be neither of the names we picked and she will have a totally different name than we thought.

For the last 7 1/2 months I have been eating, sleeping, and researching baby products from blankets to bottles and I am finally ready to share my favorite things. All of the items I either own, have researched in great depth or they are on the way to my house as I type.

When I first found out I was pregnant a million things were going thru my mind but one that was the most important was my health and making sure I eat the right things, drink enough water and to be zen. My diet has always been restricted at my own hand only cause I really feel better when good things are going into my body. 10 years ago I cut out meat and diary, then 5 years ago gluten then I slowly brought back fish 6 years ago.

I can’t even express how happy I am to FINALLY announce my pregnancy. The last 5 months have been a roller coaster to say the least full of morning sickness, emotional confusion about how my life is going to be completely different, an unbelievable amount of joy, medical tests, and worry about pretty much everything.

It wasn’t up until 4 months into the pregnancy that I started feeling a bit more like myself, the morning sickness aka all day sickness had subsisted and I decided that I was going to trade in fear for faith. I decided instead of making myself sick over if I was going to be a good mom, or if the baby is ok, or what my new life is going to look like I empowered myself by saying I’m doing the best I can at this moment and what will be will be. I was kidding myself thinking that I even had control of some things.

I found a good balance by list making (Evernote is the best thing ever) and mediation. Empowering myself was key. Taking control of not being able to take control, made a world of a difference.
