Hey guys! I recently had the opportunity to be read by the amazing Jessica. Jessica was born and raised just outside of Vancouver, BC, Canada. From a very young age, she was always fascinated with the metaphysical and spiritual realm. Jess has been receiving fleeting mental images, visitations and messages from above for as long as she can remember. 

A little later in life, gaining more of a grasp on her experiences, she became hungry to learn more. She began delving into the healing arts, immersing herself in books, podcasts, courses, conferences, meditation, yoga and thought provoking conversations with mentors and like-minded souls. As she was exploring these practices, she worked as an 'undercover lightworker' for many years. 

Jessica is an intuitive clairvoyant tarot card reader and a lightworker. Her readings provide detailed validating messages, gentle guidance and proof that there's more to life than what we perceive in the physical world. 

Readings can be done in person, or over the phone. Interestingly, it does not affect the accuracy of your reading depending on your physical location. Anyone in the world can experience a reading, near or far!

I've been so excited to share this post with you guys. One that is near and dear to my heart. Although, I don't consider myself a religious person at all, I do consider myself a very spiritual person. I was so excited to connect with Jessica through Instagram and have her provide me a reading. I was astounded at the connections and information she told me. We did our reading over the phone because we are worlds apart but that didn't effect the amazing energy and conversation we had one bit. I won't go into too much detail about my personal reading because it's well, personal, but I felt amazing afterward!

I find that staying in tune with your spirituality can be something that is easily forgotten or not worked on. I enjoyed this reading so much because it gave me a huge boost of spiritual energy and comfort in some big life changes. I even found out that I was calcium deficient! Jessica has a very kind spirit and I 100% recommend you checking out her services. Whether it's because you're interested in getting a reading done and never have before, or you just want an over boost of your spiritual energy you need to connect with her! 

Because I love you guys, Jessica is offering a 20% discount for her services when you mention me! (regular price: $70, and with the discount the price would be $56). This offer will be valid through June 1st so don't miss out on this amazing opportunity. 

You can connect with Jessica on Instagram or at

Home. My favorite place in the whole wide world to be. Finally I've created a space in which I love to come home to and hate to leave. I thought it would be fun to introduce a few more home posts here and there on the blog. As most of you know I absolutely love to decorate and fine that a lot of my personal style is reflected in my home as well! We live in Provo, UT and have lived in this little 1960's rambler for a whole year now. Which is crazy. 

We got this rug from Rugs USA a few months ago and have just loved the warmth and brightness it's brought into our space throughout the winter months. I always find that adding a little pop of color in each room in the winter really helps make the cold hard months a little easier :). I did the same thing with our bedroom. I've had a ton of people ask about this style, you can find it HERE. Honestly when I was telling everyone I was going to put a pink rug in the family room they all thought I was nuts! Even my hubby. Funny thing is, he absolutely loves it now and I've never had so many questions asked about a rug before! We love the quality and affordability of Rugs USA and have had their rugs in our home since we moved here! I've got a fun giveaway coming up with them so keep your eyes peeled!

We've also been loving this couch! We bought it in November and I get quite a few questions on it as well. It's from Article. It's this one, and it's the comfiest best couch ever. So happy we decided to go with this one! I get questions about how I keep my cats from scratching my furniture and let me tell you it aint easy. I have a couple tips and tricks up my sleeve though so let me start! 

☾✰ Keep a water bottle handy: My kitties obviously hate water and I think it's safe to say that most do. Jimi is the one that really likes to 'test the waters', get it? But I haven't ever had to spray Twiggy for misbehaving. Anyways, anytime I hear Jimi scratching the furniture (when I'm around) I tell him, "No." And if he doesn't listen then I grab the squirt bottle. Most the time he runs when I go to grab it because he doesn't want to be sprayed and we've been over this before - butttt occasionally I have to remind him that's a no, no. I always offer his scratching post to him (which is around the corner) after he tries to scratch the furniture and praise him when he scratches the post. 

I know it's nearly impossible to baby sit your cat 24/7 and sometimes only a few weeks of this helps tremendously but Jimi still scratches our chair. I bought a sweater ball remover here, and I use it every 2 weeks or so on the back on these chairs to keep them looking nice and it does great on the fabric! These chairs are kind of a thick woven linen material, if you will. So hopefully that helps someone out there looking to destroy snags! I use this ball remover on our bed too and it works great. Best $8 I've ever spent. 

☾✰ On to... HOW THE EFF DO YOU HAVE A LEATHER COUCH WITH CATS. K same thing. I spray Jimi anytime he tries to scratch it. But I'm happy to report that he's never tried clawing the sides of the couch and really doesn't mess with it much. He sometimes crawls under the couch and slides and claws the bottom side, if that makes sense and he only does that when he's attention deprived. But of course, my cats do loose their shit and act up sometimes, especially when there is a storm brewing, so I've been very diligent in making sure I buff out any surface scratches from them running or doing whatever the hells cats do. I got this leather cream with a bag that was sent to me and decided to give it a whirl on the couch and it works SO GOOD. Don't be freaked out when your couch turns 50 shades darker when you first apply it. Within 24-48 hours it's all back to normal. I apply it very lightly with a cotton t shirt and it's honestly amazing. I do this like 2 or 3 times a month and just spot buff it (I don't both with the whole thing) and yeah it works great for us! Twiggy is our angel child and doesn't ever mess with the couch. That's why she gets brushed and treats everyday. Lol, not kidding. But who am I kidding Jimi does too. Sue me.

☾✰ I know this seems daunting but honestly I love my cats but I also love having furniture I actually like and I'm willing to do what it takes to make sure they're happy and the furniture doesn't get shredded. And if you're an animal lover like me, they're totally worth it. 

Let me know if you have any other questions in the comments! We are going to be changing things up in this space here in the next few weeks, hello nesting. So I wanted to document how it's been the last few months for you guys and myself! 


Haven't done a chill talking post in a while so I thought today I'd take a quick chance to chit chat about the power of affirmations. In case you're not familiar with what an affirmation is: 


1. the action or process of affirming something or being affirmed.
"he nodded in affirmation"

So basically when you 'affirm' something you are stating that something is true. Or providing emotional support or encouragement. I've practiced affirmations since before I even knew what they were. Now that I truly understand the power of affirmations I use them each and everyday of my life. 

Before getting pregnant (when we were trying) I used an affirmation and mala beads to practice an intuitive pregnancy. I'll share the affirmation I used :) 

'I am fertile and maternal.' 

Short, simple, but extremely powerful. I had Adam come up with his own positive affirmation. I'm not sure what he ended up coming up with. But we practiced reciting our affirmations daily with our mala beads. I believe that's one of the major contributing factors to our success with our pregnancy. And of course months of previous work and preparation. 

Another simple affirmation I used the other day while traveling was: 

'I am strong, I can do this.' 

May sound silly now, but at the time it brought me so much peace and comfort knowing that I could do this and I am strong. What I'm talking about doing is flying on an airplane. Lol. I suffer with extreme motion sickness and didn't want to take any anti nausea medicine because I felt like the risks outweighed the benefits so I was left on my own. And although I did puke on one of the flights on the way down, I still felt strong and extremely proud of myself afterward. 

Me and my husband recently set a goal that I would send him an applicable positive affirmation to recite at work each day, and we would say out loud or write down 3 things we were grateful for each day. It makes a HUGE difference in our days and I highly encourage you to do so as well. If you have a hard time thinking of your own mantras, you can always look up positive and relevant mantras on the internet. There are millions floating around. If you find yourself having a hard time believing your mantra after reciting it only a few times, try purchasing a mala necklace. You simple close your eyes and run your fingers over each and every bead repeating your mantra out loud or in your head until you get all the way around. Anyways, hope this spoke to someone out there. I'll share our mantra for today with you:

'I express gratitude for all the wonderful things in my life and the great things that are coming.'

26 weeks already say what?! One more week and I'll be 6 months preggo and there are only 3 more to go! I can't believe it. It doesn't even seem possible. Our little girl is still cookin and doing just perfectly! I haven't done an official update since 20 weeks so here we go again :) 


26 weeks! 


Baby is the size of a scallion (weird comparison but k kewl). She weighs 1 2/3 pounds. She's about 14 inches long and now inhaling and exhaling small amounts of amniotic fluid! 


17 lbs. so far and a little over half way. So I'm guessing I'll put on about 30. That's what my mom put on with her all babies and dropped it all right after giving birth! 


Yessssss. Finally got my first pair of maternity pants and let me tell you they are AMAZING. I've had a hard time finding super cute maternity pants that fit my style and finally came across Hatch Collection and I'm obsessed with their whole line. (pictured above)


Sleeping okay. I've been sleeping really light and can feel the baby squirm all around when I'm half asleep. Still having crazy dreams that leave me feeling tired in the morning but can't complain other than that! 


Well it was last week, but Adam finally felt the baby move. It was the BEST. I've been wanting him to feel her move so badly and he finally did! His face lit up and he got the biggest grin. It made my life. I can't wait to see him as a dad, he's going to be the best ever.


Headaches still. Still pretty tired. Easily worn out. A little more moody and irritable but nothing intolerable. 


Orange juice, Dairy Free Coconut Ice Cream Bars, Fruit, Strawberry Lemonade, Butternut Squash.


Dairy. Meat. Hamburgers. (the same) Leftovers.


Little baby girl.


Nope. And thank goodness! 


In, but disappearing as we speak.


Pants buttoning up. Skirts zipping up all the way. Running and feeling normal. 


Putting the nursery together! (Just a few things left to get). Meeting her! Baby shower! Getting to know her. Birthing classes start this week yay! :) 


At 24 weeks she could technically survive outside the womb. Which is re-assuring. Hoping that's not a concern in the near future though and she just keeps cooking.

☾✰ BUMP?

Yes, it's round and finally quite visible.

Hi guys! Sorry I've been dead on the internet the past few days! We took a red eye flight to Bonita Springs, Florida and I've been catching some rays and napping my life away! Yay for vacations though. This one was much needed and extremely over-due. Nothing quite like sporting a baby bump on the beach. Haha. I kept asking Adam if it looks like I'm prego or it looks like I've got a beer belly. Hahah, the struggles. Anyways I love this layered look! 


pics by the ever so lovely Chantel Marie.

With awkward weather happening as of late in Utah I love layering so that I can take off layers if it does happen to get super warm all the sudden! I layered this amazing top under a short and sweet little dress and I love the way it turned out. I'm not huge on belting at the waist normally but because it helps the bump show off a little more I thought it was necessary for this look! Speaking of layers can we chat about these pretty necklaces for a second, *swoon*. They're from The 2 Bandits and it's their newest collection and it is absolute perfection! I've been loving this little bag too by Nat & Nin! Such a sweet little addition to any outfit. I just love it. I'm embracing taking small little bags around anywhere and everywhere before the baby comes and I have to upgrade to a diaper bag :) So cheers to baby bags! I'll be taking tons of pics here in the next day or so for our trip but haven't whipped out the camera yet because (sleep deprived). Oh! And baby girl kicked a whole bunch on the beach yesterday. I think we have an ocean lover :) Between the sun, cool wind and waves crashing down she seemed to be a happy little bean. Didn't want to forget that! I'll do another prego update here this week! Have a wonderful day loves!
