Staying Fit During Pregnancy, Part 3


This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Nutrimom for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.   It’s update time again! I wanted to give you my third and final review of Nutrimom – the app I’ve been using to keep me from completely derailing in the nutrition and fitness department while prego. If you missed the first two posts about Nutrimom, you can read them here and here. One of the things I have loved has been Nutrimom’s subscription boxes. As part of the program, every month they send a subscription box, which has basically been a package full of healthy goodies to keep me fueled throughout the day. Bonus points that prenatal supplements were also part of that package (cuz let’s be serious – those babies get expensive!). I don’t know about you guys, but one of the reasons that eating clean is such a struggle while pregnant…

Black Friday Sale Roundup!

Ok peeps – here’s the deal: there aren’t tons of things I ‘splurge’ on or too many high-ticket price items on my wish list usually. BUT for those few things that I’m willing to invest in and for the more expensive items that I end up needing on occasion, I always, always, allllllways try to wait for a SALE before I pull the trigger. And hello – Black Friday is the sale of all sales! So my 2 cents: do your Christmas shopping and your more expensive item shopping now when everything is on sale!

Tips for Layering


If you’ve been following me on Instagram or just following along on the blog for a minute, it’s no secret that I am obsessssssed with fall. By far my favorite season. One of the biggest reasons for that is that I love fall fashion! And more specifically, layering. Who doesn’t love having an excuse to wear multiple adorable items at one time? I’ve teamed up with Target today to pull together a layered look using some of the adorable fall/winter items in stores right meow, and to share a few tips for layering success. My love for layering is one of the many reasons that I’m a lil’ bit obsessed with Target – you can walk out of there with multiple items to pile it on without breaking the bank. And their selection right now is real real good.

My Holiday Shopping Philosophy + Thanksgiving Dinner Outfit Ideas


You guys – can we agree that holiday shopping has officially hit full-swing? Well, that is if you’re not me – I tend to make it a point to not be on top of anything, which means I literally haven’t purchased a single gift yet (#awesome). That being said, there’s one thing I have done in prep for getting my holiday shopping on: I gifted myself! Yep – you heard me right. I bought myself a lil’ gift or two. Does that make me a Selfish Samantha? Perhaps. But I think there’s another way to look at it: I genuinely tend to believe that when you treat yourself first, you feel more inspired to treat others – and it makes the whole holiday shopping process more exciting and fun! Right? Guys, am I crazy? Or can you get behind me on this? I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that you should all give it a try, and you should start with Target’s Wonderlist – a curated collection of adorable seasonal picks that would make awesome gifts for yourself, and for others too!
