UP Mommy Life

You guys, it has literally been so so long since I have sat down and wrote a blog post. Life has been crazy the last few months and I can't wait to share everything with you! Based on the title of this post, you already know my announcement, but I am pregnant!

I remember when I posted about being pregnant with our daughter, it seems like ages ago! I mean, in a way it is because she is now going to be two in just three days. I swear time has been going by way too quickly. We knew once Mila turned two that we would be ready to expand our family. I always wanted kids closer in age because my sisters and I are very far apart in age and it did make it hard growing up.

I am currently 9 weeks 5 days and our due date is December 2nd! Christmas time is one of my favorite times of the year, so I was so excited to find out that we would be having this baby before Christmas.

I plan on doing more pregnancy updates here on my blog as well as on YouTube. I have linked my YouTube video below if you wanted to see my pregnancy announcement over there. I can't wait to bring you all on this journey with my family and I.

Happy March everyone! I can't believe it is already the third month of the new year! Time has seriously been going by so fast and my little baby will be turning two in two months! I seriously cannot believe it! 

I had taken a little break from blogging but I am back and super excited because I have a lot of new beauty products I wanted to share and review for you guys! For today's post, we are talking about the Pixi Beauty Natural Beauty eyeshadow palette. I had received a PR gift from Pixi and it included this palette and another one, but this was the one that was calling my name. 

This palette is filled with a lot of beautiful cool tone shades. There is also a mix of shimmer and matte shades. 

Let's go over the colors in the palette! I am not sure if they have specific names, so we will just go by the swatches below from left to right:
  • matte cream 
  • shimmery taupe/blush pink (this one is very chunky and does have some fall out. I would recommend using fix+ to apply this product on the eyelid. 
  • shimmery beige 
  • pink shimmer shade
  • medium cool toned brown (I love using this shade as a transition shade)
  • another shimmer shade but is more of a rose gold
  • matte dark brown
  • shimmery cooper 
  • purple/brown matte
  • dark brown matte
  • medium/dark brown that has a hint of glitter
  • very dark brown with a hint of glitter

I thought the shimmer shades really shined in this palette. The mattes were a little dry and a bit harder to blend. This is considered a drugstore palette but it does retail for $24.00, so it is pretty pricey compared to other drug store brands. 

I wish the mattes performed a little bit better because I tend to wear more mattes then shimmers. I do think the colors in the palette are beautiful, but I would rather buy a Morphe palette for the $24.00 price point. 

 I would love to hear your thoughts on this palette! It can be purchased at www.target.com for $24.00.

Being a first time momma, I have learned a lot when it comes to raising a child. And one of those things I learned is that babies and toddlers love to be comfy. And sometimes it is super hard to find cute, comfy clothes for our kids. Which is why I was so excited to come by Posh Peanut on Amazon.

They have a wide range of clothing for babies, toddlers and mommas as well. They have gowns for babies, (which are literally the cutest!), robes for momma and even cute little slippers!

The piece that Mila is wearing in this post is their one piece silky soft romper. This romper is one of the softest pieces of clothing I have ever felt and Mila loves it. It is silky, super breathable and light weight.

This specific romper comes in two shades, Country Rose and Fuchsia Wild Flower. I chose the Fuchsia Wild Flower and I love the colors. It is the perfect piece from transitioning from winter to spring. I love the floral and the bright fun colors. 

This romper is 100% cotton and has a really nice buttery soft texture to it. It is nice and stretchy so Mila can climb over everything and move around without being uncomfortable.

We did get the size 18-24months and Mila is currently 21 months old and usually wears a size 18months in pants and a 2T in shirts. I found this fit her perfectly. 

It also has this beautiful ruffle detailing down the front that just really adds to the outfit. It does have buttons which I love because it does make it easier when I am changing Mila's diaper. 

I seriously cannot wait to get my hands on more. And once we have another baby, I know he or she will be living in Posh Peanut. You can purchase this romper from Amazon for only $33.95 and if you have Amazon Prime, you get free shipping!
