5 ways to save on your babies nursery

  • Don’t be too proud to look for big ticket items that have already been used. We were able to save hundreds of dollars by taking a friends old crib on their hands. We also refurbished a dresser that had been in my family since the 60s! Fresh coat of paint can do wonders.
  • speaking of paint… Paint a wall! just one. If your a “renter” and are feeling like your babes room is looking “blah”. Painting one wall is an easy fix. You can paint it back when the time comes to move. It helps so much liven up any space!
  • Register for all the things. Don’t hold back. Your friends and family are so excited to welcome a new baby! Friends and family can go in on a gift together if it is on the pricer side! You might be surprised who decides to ball out on you. Just be uber grateful! 
  • Try your very hardest not to buy things for baby before your shower. This was huge for us! I didn’t buy a single thing until after the baby shower. I wasn’t sure what people would buy so I just held out. (It was hard at times, but VERY) worth it!
  • Keep the decor in the nursery minimal. You don’t need to have something on every wall. I recommend going to Michaels or Hobby Lobby. They had a ton of cute (and CHEAP) nursery decor items. I WAS SHOCKED.  

My nursery decor cost about $80 at all the end of the day. I am so grateful to have friends and family to shower our babe with everything else they will need come their arrival. creating a space I could enjoy with the baby was very important to me. If you have the means to be able to do this, I hope this helps you save a couple bucks! and if you are someone that can’t afford these THINGS, remember these are THINGS and they don’t matter.

5 minute hair tutorial!

I’m not 100% sure what you would call this hair style, BUT what I do know is that it can elevate your everyday bun into something a little more fun and interesting! All you need to create this look are three hair ties, and two hair pins. You have the option to wear your front section (bang section) up or down based off your preference. Wear them sleek and straight or beach waved! Whatever you do, just rock the hell out of it and thank everyone for the complements you’re about to receive! 


  • Leave out bang section to either curl or straighten 
  • Take your first section and make a “fan bun” 
  • Pinch the crown of your hair to create a lived in look
  • Take your second section and do the same exact thing as you did to the first bun. 
  • THEN, use one Bobbi pin to flip up your bun to make sure there is no gapping 
  • Repeat again, for the third bun! 
  • Spray with hair spray to complete the look! I used Air Control Light hold from Aveda

What being pregnant during Covid 19 has been like

Here I am, totally pregnant during Covid 19… Never in a million years did I think this was going to be the time I was going to start a family. But at this point, nothing shocks me! Luckily for me, because I’m a hair stylist and I talk to so many people daily. I already had a bit of a head start on what I should be expecting as a new mom in “Covid times”. This was going to mean going to Dr appointments alone, potentially limited support in the delivery room, and eventually what was I going to do once the vaccines become available to all. 

Going into my first appointment alone was the one thing that brought me anxiety. Thankfully, everything went fine. They did let me record and even FaceTime if I wanted to. I decided to wait to show him the video till we could be together to watch it.  I will say I can’t recall a single thing this Dr told me because I was on my death bed as far as morning sickness is concerned. But I survived, and you will too!  Jump to 20 weeks prego. We were finally told that at the anatomy scan partners could come! Yay. This was the first time in 4 months that he was able to see and hear the babe. It was great. We weren’t finding out the sex, which for us, made it even more exciting.

I am now at 36 weeks, and the Covid guidelines for delivery have gone back to only one support person in the room. So hopefully that’s your partner because grandma and grandpa will have to wait till you get home. Although being pregnant during covid has had its downs, I’m grateful for the moments we’ve shared at home.

April 2021… The moment we have all been waiting for. Vaccines for all! I was shocked. It happened so quick! Now that the vaccines were available for all, it still wasn’t clear whether or not the CDC had cleared pregnant women. During this time my husband got vaccinated, and I had an appointment. Then canceled it due to inconvenience and a slight bit of anxiety. One week later, the CDC officially said YES. I immediately scheduled my first dose. The first dose, all I had was a sore arm. Second dose, the same! I wasn’t mad that’s for sure! For me, deciding what the right thing to do was a challenge. But the end of the day getting Covid while pregnant would be horrible and who knows how my body would react. I assumed the worse case scenario. And although there isn’t exact data on how much the baby is protected, or for how long. Even a little bit is better than nothing in my book! 

I can’t say what the end of this journey looks like for me quite yet. With only four weeks left to go, I’m hopeful that everything will go smoothly and being pregnant during Covid 19 will be just the start of crazy family stories!
