No joke…we pulled off the side of the road to take these pictures in the shade and I saw a lady watching us through her window. She finally came outside and asked if we wanted to borrow her tripod and take pictures in front of her flowers!! She made my day! I LOVE running into nice people. There are even some in LA 😛
She’s like “Mommmmmm I need shoes”….“Okay, fine I’ll smile. Let’s get this over with!”
Now that vlogging everyday for a month has ended, I can finally focus more on my blog posts (which I love and MISS!), regular routine videos, and more motherhood/fashion/beauty focused videos and posts. As much as I love daily vlogging, it is a bit overwhelming doing it by yourself. Getting ready every day, filming, editing the footage, and taking care of a seven-month-old can be a struggle! I’m still adjusting to this whole motherhood thing and one of the biggest lessons I’ve learned so far has been to set realistic expectations of myself. For the first few months, I would task myself huge to-do lists and only cross off one or two by the end of the day, leaving myself feeling defeated. I see so many Moms on social media these days who look like they have it all together; flawless outfit/makeup, perfectly clean house, blog posts/videos up on time. Sometimes I feel like I can’t get it together and then I remind myself that 90% of everything you see is staged. Don’t get me wrong, I love looking at aesthetically pleasing pictures, but on the other hand, when it’s 5 pm and I’m still in a robe or haven’t showered I’ll admit I do get down on myself about it.
My goal for August is to prioritize my life in a way that sets up realistic goals that way I can feel accomplished and not overwhelmed by everything I have to do. Some days I think it would be so much easier if I didn’t have a blog/Youtube channel. All I would do is solely take care of Annabelle, take pictures for no other purpose than to send to family and friends, only put my makeup on and do my hair on the weekends, and have no deadlines! Ahhh life would be different….BUT I wouldn’t be totally fulfilled. I’m so blessed to be able to share my life while having a career. It’s been one of the best things since becoming a Mom. I’m so happy doing it, but I’m still trying to find a balance between having a career and tending to a baby. I’ll get there one day!:) For now, here are some snapshots of our weekend which we vlogged here! I wore this top from Pink Blush and I love it’s billowy shape and crochet detail at the top. I wore a ton of their items when I was pregnant and I’m so glad they have non-maternity pieces too! I love this maxi dress and this off the shoulder dress. I’m also considering these overalls, but I’m not sure I could pull them off being short. What do you think?;) A lot of you guys ask where I get my robes from and I have two from Pink Blush. They have the cutest patterns!
Here’s a schedule you can expect to see throughout August!
Videos: Monday, Wednesday, Friday
