Insta-discoveries

Good morning friends!

I don't know about you but I have an ongoing love affair with Instagram.  Talk about the best app ever!  Although I have been cheating on Instagram lately with one of my new favorite apps Picfx.  I love that I am able to add awesome light affects to my pictures with Picfx and then share it through Instagram and use the different filters to change the colors.  Talk about the perfect twosome!  If you have never used Instagram or Picfx, I suggest you get on that ASAP!

Here are a few of my favorite new discoveries/projects which I of course needed to capture through Instagram.


I was browsing blogs this past weekend and came across this awesome jewelry store called Alimonda.  They have such fun, trendy jewelry that is completely my style.  This made it hard for me not to purchase every last thing on their site.  After long consideration, I narrowed it down and chose my two favorite pieces which I am wearing above, the middles and long necklace.  Love, love, love is the only way to describe these pieces!  I bought my A (for baby Aidan) at Von Eshna.  Now I have a silver and gold A to keep close to my heart.  I love that I am able to wear these three necklaces together.  The difference in lengths is just perfect for layering.        


If you want to experience deliciousness than you must go to Cups!  Unfortunately they only have locations in NJ and NY currently, but if you live by one go, go, go NOW and get some!  They have over 10 frozen yogurt flavors which you can mix together (as many flavors as you desire) and tons of toppings.  As you can see I piled them on!  I had strawberry, vanilla, and chocolate frozen yogurt with strawberries, reese's pieces, oreo cookie, and non-pareils as my toppings.  Perfect fulfillment for a pregnant woman's cravings!



Have you all heard of the magical place that is called Homegoods.  If you haven't then you are missing out!  The price is always right and they have fabulous, unique pieces.  I could go there everyday and find a new, must have item for my home.  I found this cute wooden giraffe figurine there, which just so happened to be the perfect addition to baby Aidan's room.  My bathroom was lacking some wall art, so where did I go, you got it Homegoods!  Did I find something?  Now that's a silly question.  Of course I did!  Are these pieces not just fabulous!


I call this my hippy chic style.  I came across this headband during my recent move and decided it needed some love.  I'm pretty sure I've had this for at least two years and this is the first time I wore it.  I tend to forget about things especially if they are not right in front of my face.  I purchased it at one of my all time favorite stores....Urban Outfitters!!  Headbands have been making an appearances quite often in my wardrobe this summer.  I go through phases and it just so happens to be a headband one currently.  This is probably why I have such a hard time parting with items!


I consider myself a pretty crafty person and love trying new things, so when my aunt asked me if I could paint a beach scene on her (shore house) mailbox I accepted the challenge!  Crafting makes me happy, so I enjoyed every last minute of this project.  And apparently I'm not a bad painter, who knew!  It's not amazing by any means but I think it came out pretty good for a first timer.  Now if only I could be sitting on that beach right now! 


I am kind of obsessed with documenting my life through Instagram.  Anyone else?  Are there any link parties for Instagram because if not I may need to get on that!  

Come follow along.

Oh my gosh I am totally obsessed with Instagram too!! I have actually gotten rid of my facebook account because I no longer used it due to Instagram!
Picfx is also an amazing app, I love the "Bokeh" filters :)
LOVE the "A" necklace, such a wonderful idea to have your baby's initial, you have inspired me to get a "P" necklace for my 4 week old daughter Paige.
You are looking so well, not long to go now!!
