My Picks for My Guy and Littles: The Best of Sale

I get a surprising amount of DM’s about men’s style. When I met O he was a very bedazzled, very flared pant wearing man that believed every outfit needed to color coordinate-including denim requiring a blue shirt or shoe to match. We’ve come a long way. East Dane has been one of my go-to places over the years to build his wardrobe to last and look great while doing so. Anthropologie is also having 25% off everything so rather than sharing women’s clothes like always, I’m sharing my picks for littles and some Holiday favorites that won’t be on sale again until Black Friday. Let’s go!

The Postpartum Momiform 5×5: Fall Edition

Getting dressed postpartum can be challenging at best. Our bodies are in an in-between state, we’re either pumping or nursing or burping a baby throughout the day, and we often are tempted to wear sweats all day, every day just to find any comfort in our bodies at all. Here are the 5 pieces I find essential to make getting dressed in the fall during the postpartum period as easy as can be.

I shared all my current food restriction in this blog post, but essentially I eat a strict paleo diet minus eggs until Z can tolerate them.

Incase you haven’t looked at a calendar yet, let me be the first to welcome you to October, 2020. I’m using all the restraint I can muster to bypass the opportunity to talk about time (at least out loud) and will skip right to the post. Today, I’m looking back on my favorite Autumn posts from the past to get us all in that October mood.

Ultimate Newborn Essentials: 0-3 Months

Zeameh turned four months old last week and that officially closes the chapter on the ‘fourth trimester.’ The newborn phase can be straight up hard. There is no magic product on Amazon Prime to change that fact, but there are a few products that make it easier, sweeter and more comfortable. (I should also say-more cute.) After going through the newborn experience three times in the past five and a half years, these are my newborn MVP’s.

A Hashimoto’s Update: Why I’m off my Medication, Changing my Diet and How to Handle a Postpartum Flare

I’ve shared a bit here and there that my thyroid has gone a bit haywire. I was warned about postpartum with Hashimoto’s but I still didn’t expect it to be quite so challenging. The situation wasn’t helped at all by me accidentally taking the wrong dose of medication for five months. I hope you have your warm drink of choice in hand and, for my sake, a bread of some sort. Any sort. Let’s dive in to the full thyroid update, shall we?
