Love & Madness: Star Wars Giveaway


I know I’m not the only one pumped for The Force Awakens – we are only about one month away until the newest Star Wars installment and you can feel the excitement anywhere you go. Stores like Kohl’s, Target and JCPenny are getting ready by ramping up their Star Wars merch, which makes it very hard to go…like, anywhere without spending a fortune. Jewelry line, Love and Madness, is no exception.

They would make the perfect flair for your premiere outfits – and I’m here to give one lucky reader a chance to win their own! Keep scrolling for more details!

What I Wore: TeeFury Bird Watcher

DSCF5674 copy

It’s always pretty incredible when you get to work with companies that you love and admire. As you all can remember, I worked with TeeFury during my pregnancy, and was flattered when they asked me to be a brand ambassador shortly after. I’m so excited to bring you fun posts inspired by their amazing designs! Aside from becoming part of the bird watcher’s club, we hit another milestone: Luna went on her first stroll around the neighborhood! Although she wasn’t the biggest fan (I think it was just really hot & she was too covered up), it was nice to get out of the house and breathe in some fresh (& humid) air. Mama is getting a little cabin fever!

I wish I could tell you that I’m already fitting into my pre-pregnancy clothes, but I’m still 25lbs away from that goal. Thankfully, some of my loose fitting options work and thanks in part to slapping on shapewear a couple of days after coming home from the hospital, I’m starting to get my waist back and a flatter tummy. Now, of course, I’m not saying that that is my main focus at the moment, but you can’t deny that battling the baby blues is easier when you feel good about yourself and the way you look. So for now, I am accentuating my shrinking waist with high-waisted options and fun tees. I’m not going to lie – getting these pictures was not an easy task and they are not my favorite shots, but all we could manage with a wailing baby. I’m sure I’ll learn to balance outfit posts and a baby, but for now, expect them to be a little far and few between.

What I Wore: I Know My Value


Can someone start playing “The Final Countdown?” Because that’s where I’m at right now! In these pictures, I was a pleasantly plump, but happy 35 weeks. Things are starting to ache and bother, but I’m still pretty petite which allows me a little more energy and mobility than most. The hubs and I had one of our usual foodie day dates in Wynwood, and we were able to visit some pretty amazing little markets, such as Flavorish & Marky’s, and had lunch at Ms. Cheezious (do you know they now offer their sandwiches on gluten free bread???). We picked up so many delicious little treats and fantasized about having picnics with our little one in the future.

As usual, Jordan Dene’s tanks keep me super comfy. I love that I don’t have to rely on maternity and can still let my geek flag fly as often as possible. I’m loving her new line of tees – this one being a quote from Agent Carter. Make sure to check out her site – it is chock full of goodies for yourself AND the geeky little ones in your life!

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.

What I Wore: Moonie Power

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

It’s really no surprise at this point that I am a huge Sailor Moon fan – I mean, it really shouldn’t be. I adore all things magical and girl power so naturally I was drawn to the anime when I was a kid and still absolutely fawn over it as an adult. I love that with the success of Sailor Moon Crystal, all new sorts of merch is being put out there, but what I’m loving the most is those made with a lot of love by independent designers, like Geekilicious!

Elise makes all sorts of fangirl goodies, like throw pillows, iPhone cases and spiral notebooks, but she just recently started incorporating more clothing into the mix and I am so glad she did. She has these beautiful mini skirts and leggings made with such quality materials. I personally can’t wait to rock some of the mini’s once I get working on my post-baby bod, but I was excited to be able to play dress up with these fantastic Usagi leggings. It’s not every day that a pregnant girl gets to feel “super cute” in an outfit, but this one did the trick! Little pro tip? Pair leggings with not only a basic top, like I did, but also with a longer button down. This will help mask any “muffin topp-ing” that could possibly occur thanks to those new baby pounds.
