I’m all for a super sentimental blog post any day of the week (aka see my previous post – but let’s be honest; I’m also downing my People magazine and spending way too much time scrolling through Instagram and the internet just like everyone else.

So for a nice healthy dose of entertainment (with some solid information tucked in there too), here is a round-up for some of my latest finds that I’ve read, watched, listened to, and had the urge to buy lately…

The Everymom is absolutely killing it. Their IG account draws me in almost every single day and once I’m on their site, I open at least three or four different articles, every single time. Recent posts that I’ve read include:

20 Freezer Meals To Make Before Baby Comes That Aren’t Lasagna

“Mom” Is Not My Only Identity

What Skincare Products Are OK To Use When Pregnant or Nursing

The Dangers of Distracted Parenting, all about parent’s screen time via The Atlantic

The Bump’s Toddler Month by Month Milestone posts (often includes easy, fun ideas perfect for Bode’s age at the time)

Mother Mag. I’m obsessed with this site. Their articles are both inspiring and informative and their whole approach and aesthetic is my cup of tea. Another one of those sites that I’m constantly opening articles up in new tabs to read every time I visit.

I’ve followed Natalie Borton on Instagram for years and I just keep enjoying her more and more. She has her #legitmomstyle fashion advice and hashtag that’s actually… legit. I don’t follow many fashion/style accounts by any means but her’s is one that is really worthwhile, with looks that I actually would wear! Add in her real mom approach to kiddos and overall inspirational outlook on life, and following her on IG is a pure pleasure.

Oh and she also makes jewelry. I’m determined to get a pair of her tassel earrings at some point!

As a journalism major, the New York Times is the holy grail and I never fail to find fabulous reads thanks to their amazing team of writers and editors. Recent faves:

The Absolute Necessity of the New-Mom Friend

The Costs of Motherhood Are Rising, and Catching Women Off Guard

How GOOP’s Haters Made Gwyneth Paltrow’s Company Worth $250 Million

And because retail therapy is a real thing…

Smash + Tess… I think I need one of these rompers… being a work-from-home/stay-at-home mom, loungewear is my jam (maybe a bit too much).

And speaking of loungewear… are these caftans too much? They look SO comfy, especially for postpartum, but worried I’ll look too frumpy.

And speaking of postpartum… I’m loving Solly’s layette sets for newborns. So soft, so simple.

Last but not least in the shopping cart category…due to my body shifting a whole lot lately (hello two pregnancies within two years), I find it tough to buy much clothes. Everything needs to be stretchy and nursing friendly. But you know what I can buy instead? Beauty products. So it’s safe to say I have lots of tabs open currently with random beauty products I might try, such as:

Drunk Elephant T.L.C Sukari Babyfacial

Saturday Skin Wide Awake Brightening Eye Cream (going to really need this come baby #2)

Summer Fridays Jet Lag MaskBrazilian Bum Bum Cream (I’ve bought this before. The smell is out of this world amazing. I need more in my life.)

Current offline indulgences….
