Minted: Baby Paper Goods


I’m sure you guys have heard of Minted, especially if you get Christmas cards from your friends and family. I know come holiday season, our house is full of beautifully designed cards from the site, but they just recently introduced baby paper goods. If you know me, you know how much I love stationery, notebooks and the such. Basically, setting me loose in Office Depot is a treat. That’s why I was so happy to work together with Minted to bring you some of their cutest goods and show you how I’m going to make them work for baby Luna (sorry for all the blockage of Luna’s middle name – we are keeping it a secret until her birth).


I absolutely loved their baby notebooks so I knew I had to have one for little Lu. I have so many notebooks scattered around my house, it’s kind of ridiculous. I actually have several in her room already, but none were specifically geared towards her first year like this one. I also loved the gorgeous floral designed cover and the extra step of personalization with her first and middle name. The notebook also fits in perfectly aesthetic-wise with her nursery (which was revealed last week – check it out), so it was an added plus! The inside of the notebook is left blank so that you can fill it with whatever musings you wish, even if it’s just feeding times!

Life with Luna: Geeky Swag


Welcome to a new feature! Even though little Luna has not yet made her debut, she will be my partner in crime on this blog once she is and I look forward to sharing a lot of her outfits (whether she is in them or not) and her adventures in them. A lot of you have been asking me where I get all my cute geeky swag for her, so I figured I would put together a post sharing just that!


I know I share the Jordan Dene love on this blog often, but how can you not when she makes such adorable things for both babies and their parents?! I often voice that I wish they made some baby clothes for big kids, and Jordan does just that! The typography is on point and we share almost all the same fandoms, so I know I’m going to love every single piece she sends my way. Here you can see both a Game of Thrones inspired onesie, as well as a Doctor Who one. I styled the GOT onesie with a pair of skinny jeans (too much cute) that are cuffed at the bottom for some extra flair, as well as a striped beanie and silver mocs. This would definitely be a Wynwood adventuring session on a Sunday afternoon outfit with mommy attempting to pull off the same look!

Life with Luna: Nursery Tour


With 4 weeks to go until the arrival of our little one (at the time of this post, at least), I am happy to say that her nursery is complete! Granted, we still have some touches that we will add along the way, but for now, everything is looking nice and neat and as it should. The anticipation is definitely growing to meet our sweet little moon, and seeing her adorable face on the ultrasound today made me smile so hard. She’s absolutely beautiful! I can’t wait to hold that tiny body and look into those big (surely brown) eyes. But until then, we have her bright & fun nursery to share with you all!


We wanted to make sure Luna’s room was neutral so that we could play with a lot of pops of color to accessorize and decorate. We found this perfect light gray hue at Lowe’s and made sure all her furniture was white or close enough to it. Behind her crib, we had some fun with both regular and custom pieces from Etsy. As you can see, we sprinkled in a lot of moon references. ;)

TeeFury’s Potter Power


Teefury has always been a force to reckon with when it comes to geeky fashion. They started with just tees of the day, and expanded to have a whole gallery of amazing shirt designs and are now tackling shoes and leggings! My obsession with the site became so serious that I used to have it as my home screen. That is, when I would open the Internet, their homepage would show up first, immediately filling me in on what their shirt of the day was. My collection became so large, I couldn’t shut my tee drawer anymore and decided to take a shopping hiatus. What worked in my favor was that I became pregnant shortly after. Unfortunately, I just realized that all I have to do is size up and I can continue to rock their amazing tees as witnessed in this post. Fail.


I decided to match up this incredible Potter/Quidditch tee with my favorite pair of Old Navy skinnies and my new NYX lip cream in Bewitched. I thought it made a great dupe for those new Potter shades being offered by LA Splash Cosmetics. Together, I think I played the part of an excited fangirl witch enjoying the game with paraphernalia and butter beer in hand.

Party with Pipsticks


I absolutely loved this month’s Pipsticks package! It was party themed and I thought it was so appropriate considering Luna’s birthday is quickly approaching! I have been collecting the little typographical prints included in each package so I can frame them in my bathroom, and was happy to see that this month’s quote set the tone for all the sticker packs! They were really festive, bright and fun! There was even an ode to geekery with some Pikachu and Mario stickers, which I greatly appreciated. I can’t wait to decorate my agenda for the month of October with all these pretties!

I also loved the circular “Thank You” stickers, as they could be used to seal thank you card envelopes (I still have a few more to send from our baby shower – shhh) or be included in packaging if you own a small business. This month’s package came with a heartfelt message from Pipsticks’ founder about her journey to create this wonderful subscription service and it was really inspiring. I took these Thank You stickers as a personal thank you from her for being a part of this super fun sticker club, but I want to turn it around on them! This sticker pack gets me so excited every month – it’s like a bright sunshine-y rainbow that arrives in my mailbox so thank you, Pipsticks, for brightening up my little world on a monthly basis.
