Jacket - vintage

All I really want right now is some sunshine on my face and to feel the suns warmth. 

I don't have much to say today. I really love this outfit, this pretty pale pink dress with tiny embroidered flowers on it. I love that it's a wrap dress and gives me some room to grow. I also scored this vintage jacket on date night last Saturday with the babe. We went to Black Sheep (it was delicious and they have great vegetarian options) and stopped in Unhinged before to check out some of their goodies. I haven't ever found a vintage jacket that fit so well so I was stoked when I found this 80's levi denim jacket. I love the boxy/round shape and wash. Amazing. Nothing is better than vintage.

Big Walls Small Person

1.17.2017



















Shop The Post: 


I like big walls because they make me feel small. And I think sometimes it's good to feel small. 

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday! Another glorious week. Utah finally decided to have the sun shine through but the air quality is terrible so I've been cooped up inside. KSL just released and article stating how harmful air pollution can be when your pregnant and that they're finally releasing studies where it correlates directly to the health of your baby. Which is SCARY for me. It makes me not want to breath when I go outside. It makes me feel trapped. But hey ho, not much we can do about that now. Other than carpool, only drive when necessary, don't leave our cars running, etc., etc. 

It's so weird to think that at this very moment my body, my miraculous body is housing a tiny little human. It makes me feel so weird. Vulnerable. Yet, empowered. I feel strong, and capable. 

What I also think it weird is how NO ONE talks about how vulnerable you feel when you decide to have a baby and once you get pregnant. It's like the scariest thing of your whole life. You're told your whole life to avoid having children until the time is right and then all of the sudden TURN IT ON. Pray it works. Pray it does what it's supposed to. I've prepared for months for this little one prior to even trying to get pregnant. Changed my diet, my beauty products, my cleaning supplies, even my water. 

I wanted to do every single thing in my power to be rest assured that I did everything humanly possible to provide a healthy and save environment for this little unborn babe. Because it is my responsibility. Which is something you never really think about before. You begin thinking about each and every step that lead you to where you are today, questioning every medication, cleaning product, chemical that's been in your life and how it could effect you. I know it sounds dramatic and crazy but it's really how I felt and what went through my mind. 

Anyways, pregnancy is a beautiful thing and I'm so very grateful to house a little angel and to have the opportunity to be a Gardener to this sweet little baby. I will nurture him/her and help him/her grow. I don't care for the word parent or parenting. It's turned into something I don't want to take part in. I encourage you to listen to the RadioWest podcast on NPR called 'The Gardner and the Carpenter.'

k bye!

Abandoned Chair - 14 weeks

1.16.2017














Shop The Post: 


Finally whipped up some energy to go and take some photos! And yay for us it was a whopping 31 degrees so we froozzzeeee our butts off! I love the simplicity of this outfit. Messy hair, my fav sunnies and overalls with a cozy sweater. And I'm obsessed with mustard this season so yes to that. 

I'm 14 weeks pregnant today! Baby is the size of a lemon. I'm supppperrrr tired but that's really my only symptom. I just feel like I can't get enough sleep. I wake up and feel like a zombie and then go to bed feeling like a zombie. I hope I regain some energy soon. Making a baby is hard work! I am barely barely showing. My pants are getting pretty tight and I can no longer wear my favorite high-waisters. I have to compromise with some hair elastics to give me a little extra room. We find out the gender of the baby on February 2nd and I'm pretty sure I know what it is but only time will tell! Any guesses for you?? Comment below I'd love to know! 

I've been craving sour stuff. So kiwi, pineapple, sour apples. I also loveeeeee smoothies and can't get enough of them. Acai bowls have been my JAM and go to and basically anything frozen. I'm also unfortunately on a pizza kick and always in mood for that. It has to be like the kind that comes from a stone oven though that has that burnt taste almost. Not like dominos or frozen pizza. Haha. And Mexican food. Can't get enough. We have a couple local places that we've been swinging by more than I'd like to admit haha. I've been drinking more water than I ever have in my entire life. Like almost a gallon a day. Which means I use the restroom like 15 times per hour. Hahah, not really but it feels like I live in the bathroom. I've been sleeping on my left side. When I sleep on my right side I can feel whatever's in there push on my bladder so it's super uncomfortable. I've been having INSANE dreams with people from all times of my life in them. Highschool friends, old relatives, etc. They're so vivid and I really don't care for them. I've never been a dreamer so this is new to me. But I can recite my dreams perfectly when I wake up and everyone I tell thinks I'm nuts. 

Anyways, I was talking to my mom about all of this and she didn't really journal (that she can remember) during her pregnancies so I wanted to write down all the weird adventures I've been having so far so one day my kids can come back and read this! I haven't felt baby kick yet but I can't wait for that day! It will be so amazing.

Fighting Dry Skin With Skinfix

1.05.2017
















If there is one thing that unfortunately me and Adam have in common it's that we both fight terrible eczema! We're had problems with it since forever and I feel like we've just about tried every single product out there. I think the first time I discovered Skinfix was actually from a subscription box and Adam started using it on his eczema on his hand and it immediately took it away. I picked some up after he went through that bottle and we've had it in arms reach since! I struggle with eczema on the back on my legs and I just can't stand when it gets itchy. If you know the struggle, you know the struggle. NOTHING is worse than itchy legs at night. I always pull out my Skinfix and it literally takes away the redness and itch within minutes. 

I love using their hand soap in the kitchen during the winter too because my hands have literal scales on them from the desert winter. Plus I wash my hands like a gazillion times when I cook so it definitely has some wear and tear on them! I like to keep the hand lotion near by so I can moisturize right after washing to avoid any unnecessary drying out. Again, if you know, you know. 

I also love that their products are natural, free from synthetic chemicals, parabens, hydrocortisone, steroids, and fragrances. Their products are natural and made with wound healing botanicals and emollient protective oils.

Also, Skinfix formulas do not contain paraben based preservative systems. Their healing balms are “anhydrous” and contain no water in the formulas and therefore have no risk of growing bacteria or mold. Their balm formulas “self preserve” themselves and don’t require preservatives.

Anyways, if you're out there struggling with eczema I 100% recommend giving Skinfix a go. I'd recommend it to anyone and can provide a sure testimony of the success and quality of their products. You can also get their products at Target and like, who doesn't want an excuse to go to Target whenever possible? Ammmmiiiiriggghhttt?
