I just ordered the personalized School Years Journal ($39.99) from MyChronicleBooks so I can better record each school year of Chloe's. The book goes from Kindergarten all the way up to 12th grade. I love that I can easily record memories from the school year on each personalized page. I already know she wants to be a vet, but I'll have to add that she wants to be a vet for unicorns. The cutest thing will be seeing how her signature changes over the years! Get 35% off any order from MyChronicleBooks with the code FRIENDS at checkout at MyChronicle... Continue reading

Back to School is coming up soon! I'm starting my shopping now so I have everything ready by late August when Chloe starts first grade. I just ordered some School Labels Pack ($33.88) from Name Bubbles and couldn't be happier with the quality and the design.

Name Bubbles lets you see what you are creating so you can preview the labels in real time as you design them. Choose from a variety of designs, colors and styles. Chloe chose the... Continue reading

Maternity fashion has evolved over the last six years since I've been pregnant but Isabella Oliver still leads the way in my book in merging fashion forward with maternity comfort.

I also love the bohemian look of the Hutton Maternity Top ($155) which looks great over leggings or jeans. Here are more of my favorites from the Isabella Oliver Pre-Fall collection: Atherton Maternity Tunic ($115) Harris Maternity Cardigan ($145) Allerton... Continue reading
