10 Things I've Learned In My First Couple Of Weeks As A New Mom


I've been a new mama now for about 2 weeks.
Do I have it all down?
HA! That's funny.
 Not at all.
BUT, there are a few things that I learned, used, and experienced in my first two weeks that I thought might be helpful to share with some of you. Whether you are about to be a new mom, are on your third kid or are saving posts for the day when you decide to jump into motherhood, some of these little tips I would have liked to have known about before little Eloise was born. So in turn, I thought I'd share them with you so that you can be better prepared!

Eloise's Nursery



I'm so excited to finally show you a look into our sweet Eloise's nursery!
Decorating a space has always been super fun for me, so I knew that creating a chic Parisian inspired nursery was going to be right up my alley.
I'm extremely detail oriented (ask anyone who came to our wedding) so every piece and detail in this nursery was thought out, dreamed of and put into a specific place.

We went with light blush pink and white tones with gold accents to keep the look clean, chic and crisp. Starting to decorate a nursery from scratch can be totally overwhelming so, if I had to give you one tip for starting your nursery decorating process, it would be to pick the colors you want first and stick with those when finding pieces to fill the room. It makes it easier to decorate if you stick with a couple of colors that go really well together and think of a theme ahead of time. You will see that when you start to add items and put everything together, the colors will flow and everything will go together well easily!

Closet Staple: A Classic Blazer


Have you ever heard of a capsule wardrobe or buying closet staples?
I've talked quite a few times about closet staples or "must haves" items that should always be in your closet in case of a wardrobe emergency. These tend to be pieces that are neutral, can be mixed and matched with different looks and can be dressed up or down. 

I shared a closet staple dress in this post here, a basic striped dress or top in this post here, why you should definitely own a moto jacket in this post here and why a great denim jacket should also be on that closet staple list in this post here.

January's Top Ten


I'm SO excited to be starting a new little series on my blog this year! 
I can't take credit for the idea as my friend Brittany of Loverly Grey (if you don't follow her already, you should), started doing this little series at the end of last year and I just loved the whole process of it!

(PS. There's a fun giveaway at the end of this post so make sure you read all the way to the end to enter!)

Every month, I'll be rounding up the top 10 purchases from the past month through the analytics and stats of my LIKETOKNOW.IT account aka the top 10 items you purchased through my links! I'm sure most of you by now know all about LIKETOKNOW.IT (if you have no idea what I'm talking about, I did a post about it here) but it's so helpful in letting me know what you guys are loving or not loving. I can see how many of you click on a certain item either through this blog or through my Instagram and I can see how many of you purchase certain pieces! It's a great tool. 

Most of the top 10 items from January are still in stock so you can still snatch them up if you missed them!

Let's jump in!
