My first pregnancies I tried to shop at Target for maternity clothes. Attempted it because I wanted to save money. But what I found was that the clothing was huge, no matter how pregnant I was, not too impressively made, and there wasn't much style.

I'm obsessed with my Whimsy ring. Just fascinated. I cannot stop wearing it, playing with it, looking at it, admiring it. I've not had the chance to review a lot of jewelry during my time with Mommies With Style. Partially because I'm not a big jewelry wearer. I'm fickle with baubles. I tend to like something one day and hate it the next. Which is … [Read more...]
