Lime Crime’s Spin the Dial Set

There has been a lot of controversary surrounding Lime Crime, which I’m not going to get into. I will say that it initially turned me off of making any purchases from the brand. One thing I’m very impressed with when I look at Lime Crime’s website and Instagram page is that it is very diverse. Their Instagram page features a very diverse group of people and they offer a large amount of products that are unique. Lime Crime is not one of those brands thats dropping products just to drop them. It seems like they put a lot of thought and effort into their products. I currently have a ton of products from them that I want to try, but this post is about the Spin the Dial Set.

Spin the Dial

I’m not sure when this lip set came out, but I love it. I’m sure I’m not the only makeup lover/hoarder that buys products and they just sit for a while. But honey, now that I have tried this set I have to say I’m so impressed. I love the liquid lip formula, but I’m more in love with the wet cherry glosses. I’m a gloss girl! If I have a no makeup day, which is 90% of the time I will always put on gloss. These glosses are awesome everyday glosses. I would definitely recommend this brand. If the Spin the Dial Lip Set is not available they do sell the glosses and liquid lips separately. If you try any of them let me know what you think.

Hey Loves, I’m going to be uploading a ton of content and trying out different things. I realize that most of my readers don’t come from Instagram and therefore don’t see a lot of the images or content I post about on Instagram. Please let me knotw if you prefer videos or photos and let me know if there is content you would like to see. I love to hear from you guys! ♥️

Pregnancy Update

First Trimester

Monday’s are the hardest. Sometimes I feel like I’m battling depression, other days I feel like it’s the baby just getting the best of me. It’s really rough for me because I was expecting this to be a great experience. I’ve had migraines for the past seven or more years that I thought were related to my menstrual cycle. Now I’m not having my cycle but I still have the migraines, if anything they are more frequent. I really hate it because I’m always sick, I feel like no matter what I do nothing changes. There is no relief from these migraines. The worst thing about it is it seems like no one cares, nothing stops because I’m not feeling well. I just have to put on my big girl pants and suck it up. I’ve had to start journaling to keep my mind off how miserable I am. My brother asked me why I’m always sick the other day, and even my man has commented on me always being sick. It’s honestly one of the hardest things I’ve had to deal with in my life and I’m miserable I’m thinking about going to counseling.

Second Trimester

Now that I’m late in my second trimester I feel so much better. I’m ALIVE! I no longer am experiencing migranes and the constant need to vomit has passed. I no longer feel sick or want to slap every person around me that is having a good day. I didn’t end up going to counseling, but I do think the journaling really helped me. I’d say that journaling has been my saving grace, as well as reading other mommy blogs. I truly believe that I was depressed early in my pregnancy because of a lot of things, but mainly being away from my man, being sick, worrying about money, and taking time off work when I just started my job. One thing I’ve had to constantly tell myself is that everything is going to be okay. I have a lot of support from my man and our families. One thing I will say is don’t take those feelings of depression lightly. There is a stigma with the word depression, but don’t be afraid to admit that something is wrong and please don’t be afraid to seek help. We all fight our own demons and deal with some form of depression in our lives. You’d be amazed at the amount of people who can relate to what you are going through, and the amount of resources and peoople that are out there to help.

Third Trimester

Right about now I’m really beginning to feel pregnant and experience some of the symptoms that go along with pregnancy. I only have about a month and a half to go and I’m feeling it. I took a weekend trip to the beach and did a lot of walking and not enough drinking and it caused my hands and feet to swell. My hands were tingling and so swollen that it hurt to hold a pen. I couldn’t feel my feet and literally felt like I was walking on ankles. To reduce the swelling I put my feet up and made sure I relaxed and drank a lot of water. Thankfully I haven’t had that problem again. In the grand scheme of things I’m doing really well. Other than being in a constant state of anxiety. I’m just having doubts about my capabilities as a mother, the birthing process, and I’m worrying about taking time off work, money, being able to spend time with my baby, breastfeeding, putting my baby in daycare, and my man having enough time to spend with us.

We currently have 27 days to go and I couldn’t be more thrilled. I can’t wait to see her beautiful face and see how proud her dad is. I’m nervous and absolutely terrified about the birthing process, but I thank God for the support system I have. Thankfully I haven’t had too many issues and the feet swelling is a rare occurrence and for the most part I feel pretty good. I have gotten to the point where some of her movements literally hurt and I just rub on her and talk to her and that helps, but I’m ready for baby girl to get evicted. The most painful, well more so annoying thing is the pressure I feel under my breast. I’m guessing I feel some part of her applying pressure there and it makes me out of breath and makes me not want to wear a bra, which unfortunately is not an option. All in all though baby girl and I are healthy and happy!

One Brand Wednesdays Ep. 1

Maybelline Made for All Collection

Maybelline’s Made for All Collection by Color Sensational is to die for. It’s so nice to see brands making shades/products that are inclusive and universally flattering. I have to give Maybelline their props when it comes to being an inclusive brand because I feel like they have been on the forefront for years. I also have to admit that when I saw the claims I was extremely skeptical. “Universally Flattering” is a huge claim, but when I saw the shades swatched on Nyma Tang’s YouTube I instantly fell in love. She looked stunning in all the shades, and I figured that Maybelline had actually done their homework before they made that claim. Maybelline claims to have tested the shades on 50 diverse skin tones and the universally flattering collection comes in purple, pink, and red with a satin or matte finish. The shades really do look sensational on all complexions. These shades can be purchased at Target for $5.49. Check out my swatches below.

Maybelline Tattoo Studio Brow Gel & Brow Pomade

I could not do a One Brand Wednesday Post and not talk about Maybelline’s Tattoo Studio Brow Gel and Brow Pomade. The Brow Pomade is $9.99 at Target and is a product I highly recommend. The pomade is phthalate and paraben free, long wearing, and smudge and transfer proof. The pomades come in a decent shade range and can be used to create a natural or dramatic brow. The Maybelline Pomades are more creamy than the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Pomades, and though I love the Maybelline Pomade the ABH is still my favorite. For the price and color pay off the Maybelline Pomade is a definite runner up and is the only drugstore pomade I’ve liked.

Maybelline’s Brow Gel ($8.69 at Target) formula is to die for. I have thick unruly eyebrows, so I love that the brow gel keeps your brow hairs in place. This formula is defiantly long lasting and if you don’t scrub your brows or sleep crazy the formula can last up to two day. This is also a product you can feel safe wearing to the gym as it is waterproof. I love this product because a few swipes allows me to fill in my brows to have a natural brow. The product can be built up, but if I want a more dramatic brow I will use the pomade first and finish it up with the gel.

A Note About Inclusiveness

I was watching Tati’s YouTube video about Best & Worst Foundations, Luxury & Drugstore. During the video she talked about how the Beauty Blender Foundation is one of her favorites. She briefly mentioned that they extended their shade range and basically said that we need to move on because the brand heard that the shade range was crappy and addressed the issue, “What more can we do?” I think part of the problem is a lot of darker complexion people feel like they are an after thought; let’s be real no one wants to be an after thought!  

Beauty Blender is a US based cosmetic brand with a diverse following in an extremely diverse country. In my mind in 2018 there shouldn’t be a big company that launches a product with minimal shades for deeper skin tones. The 32 shade ranges that launched focused mostly on medium tones and appeared to have a lot of similar shades. It’s great that someone can find several shades that work for them, but should that come at the cost of excluding deeper shades?

Beauty blender made a post on Instagram basically stating that they initially intended on launching more shades, but because the darker shades needed more TLC their launch was delayed. Based on how a consumer feels about a brand and how the brand represents them, one has the choice to support them or not. The big thing to me is that so many brands, especially drugstore brands (cough cough Maybelline) raised the bar a long time ago so why is this still an issue heading into 2019.  Launch products with an even amount of shade ranges and extend from there; don’t totally exclude any complexion. I’m more impressed with a brand that makes an attempt to launch an even amount of skin tones and misses mine then a brand that added mine later.

Baby Shower: Scarlet Olivia

I really wanted this post to be about how to plan a baby shower, but sadly this post will not be that. If anything it’s what not to do. Typically, someone else plans your baby shower but I had the pleasure, and I say that sarcastically of planning my own baby shower. I had the pleasure of arranging the location, sending out the invites, and coordinating (if you can call it that) everything. Initially I started out with a bang, I had my checklist completed I knew everything I wanted to do and when I wanted to have things done by, but life happens. Basically, I suck at planning and it didn’t help that I was states away from where the baby shower would actually be.

I had to travel for my baby shower so I made sure to arrive three days before the shower, which was on a Saturday. Wednesday and Thursday I pretty much did nothing other than spend time with my family. Friday my girlfriend, cousin,  sister, boyfriend, and I slowly began to get it together. We got balloons, party supplies, cups, plates, and supplies to make the cake. I was determined to make my own red velvet cake and cupcakes. For the baby shower the only thing I really knew I wanted was a red velvet cake, balloons, a lot of pink, and the babies name on the wall.

Needless to say Saturday rolls around and we’re not prepared at all. I wake up finish my cake clean up and my boyfriend and girlfriend go out to get food and more supplies. They take forever and at this point I’m getting aggravated because nothing is ready and it’s after 12 and the party starts at 3. I honeslty was a wench, I was snapping on everyone (I can only imagine what my wedding will be like). Thankfully they went out and got additional supplies because it brought everything together.

We ended up having a photo booth (more like a photo area), a set up for the cake and baby gifts, her name on the wall with the most beautiful paper flowers, and all the balloons I wanted. We also had an area for the kids to play, and a set up in the kitchen for all the food. The baby shower, though a headache exceeded my expectation and was everything I wanted it to be. I was honestly worried about not having enough supplies, but we had more than enough.

In the end everything was perfect! Although, ladies I have to say I totally recommend you let someone else plan your baby shower. If event planning and coordinating peoples schedule is your thing go for it.

Check out some pictures from the shower below!

Baby Shower Do’s and Don’ts

  • Do let the grandmothers play a role.
  • Do serve a meal, especially depending on the time of day and where people are traveling from.
  • Do invite the dad and his friends, and even kids.
  • Do collect everyone’s names and addresses to send thank you notes.
  • Do get involved. Allow the expecting mother to express to the planner all the items she wants to have.
  • Do entertain the guest, play games, have a photo booth, and have finger food and punch.
  • Do make a guest book. Have a little book where people can sign and write a message to the mother and/or baby.
  • Do request that people RSVP. Nothing is worse than being under prepared. You want to make sure all your guest have a place to sit and that there is enough food.
  • Do have a host. The host can greet everyone take their coats and purses, tell everyone where the presents need to go, and make sure all the food is prepared and ready to go.
  • Do not plan your own shower. Again ladies I repeat do not plan your own shower. Give someone you trust an idea of what you like by providing pictures, a theme, colors, and things you absolutely want to have.
  • Do not plan a surprise shower. Being pregnant is not a pleasant experience for all moms. Some may be sick the entire pregnancy, tired, or moody. So make sure the mom to be wants a shower and is okay with the day and time.
  • Do not send out baby shower invites at the last minute, make sure you give everyone enough time to make the necessary arrangements. Guest may need to plan out who is going to watch the kids or dog, or make travel arrangements weeks prior to the shower.
  • Do not just sit around. If the mom to be cannot make rounds and attend to the guest have the father, or host do that.
  • Do not ask the mom to be to open gifts if she feels uncomfortable doing so. Make sure you ask the mom to be if she would like to open the gifts. I do not think I have ever been as uncomfortable as I was opening the gifts. I felt like everyone was waiting to see how I reacted to their gift.
  • Do not skimp on food and cake. If people are traveling from states away or have a long commute be sure to feed them.
  • Do not plan your shower around friends and family. The baby shower is not about your friends or family. The ones that can make it will be there and the ones that can’t can send a gift. Don’t feel pressured to plan the shower around any individual other than the mom and dad to be.

I’d like to say a special thank you to everyone who showed up, sent a gift or their thoughts and prayers. It was truly a beautiful day!

Favorite Makeup Products 2018

Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick

This product has been my absolute go to since I’ve tried it. I have extremely oily skin and most foundations make me look like a grease bucket instead of giving me a natural glow from within. Not this foundation, it gives the “my skin but better look”! I love how it evens out my skin tone and blends in so beautifully. A little of this product goes a long way. Its creamy, light-weight, cruelty free, vegan, non-irritating, and blends out like a dream. This product claims to be long-wearing, waterproof for up to 12 hours, able to adjust to your body temperature to effortlessly blend into skin, and easy to use and apply. It also claims to improve skin appearance, cover redness and skin imperfections like skin discoloration, pores, blemishes, dark under eye circles, hyperpigmentation and dark spots. In addition this product is paraben free, sulfate free, phthalate free, fragrance free, gluten free, synthetic dye free, and GMO free. In the past I have put foundation (L’Oreal) on my face and immediately had my skin become irritated and itchy. By the time I took the foundation off I had a chemical burn, therefore I am extremely picky when it comes to my foundation and most products that go on my face. The $46 price tag is well worth it. This is one of the only foundations that I have emptied multiple compacts.

Physician Formula Healthy Lip Matte Liquid Lipstick

When I tried this liquid lipstick I feel in love. I love that they do not dry out your lips and have them cracked and cakey. This is one of the few liquid lipsticks that I have tried and have gone out and got the whole collection. This brand is cruelty free and extremely affordable. I purchased all of my liquid lipsticks from CVS and often did so at a discounted price and received CVS bucks to purchase more makeup. Check out the Highlight listed as Swatch Videos on my Instagram (@fromfarmingtofashion) to see some of the swatches. They look supple on the lips without being to matte and are transfer resistant. My favorites are Berry Healthy (one of the few pink shades I like), Fight Free Radicals (a gorgeous red), and Nutritious (a beautiful brown-girl friendly nude). The Brand as a whole I belieive could expand quite a few of its shade ranges in various products, but the liquid lipsticks cater to every shade.

Kat Von D: Current Crush Glitter Gold, Everlasting Liquid Lipstick & Lip Liner

Current Crush: Glitter Gold is a gift I received around Christmas. I immediately feel in love with this product after the first try. I love the versatility of this product and the way it dries down matte. I was able to place this product on my hooded lids and had zero creasing or transfering. This cool to the touch glitter gel blends out beautifully to give a golden highlighted look. It can be worn on the lids, lips, or anywhere else on the body. I love that this product allows you to explore your creative side with its versatility. It glides on smooth and creamy and I find that I like to use a brush to place it and my finger to smooth or blend it out. This product is cruelty free, vegan, and paraben free.

@katvondbeauty

I have a ton of Kat Von D products that I could put on this list, but I tried to be fair and not overload you guys with one brand. Two products I could not skip over are the Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks & Lip Liners. The Liquid Lipsticks are long wearing, very pigmented, nondrying and give a comfortable lightweight matte finish. Out of the 42 shades offered I only have a few, but I do plan to build my collection in 2019. The Everlasting Lip Liners have become a favorite of mine as well. These Lip Liners are a little on the expensive side, but totally worth the splurge. The Lip Liners come in 30 shades and are long wearing, water resistant, and do not bleed. Personally I like to line my lips with them pop on some gloss and hit the road. My absolute favorites are Hawkwind, and Crucifix. These bad boys are definitely a must have, they don’t skip or tug at the skin, nor do they bleed outside the lip line.

Brushes: Luxie Beauty & Morphe Brushes

The quality of your brushes helps determine how you makeup will look. I hate doing my makeup and finding brush strokes on my face, or even worse the brushes leaving hairs all over the place. Morphe brushes are affordable and offered in a variety of designs and bristle types. I would definitely recommend them to any makeup enthusiast. Another company that produces some high quality brushes and deserves to be mentioned is, Luxie Beauty. I first received these brushes with my Ipsy subscription and loved them so much that I had to make a purchase. Luxie Beauty is cruelty free, 100% vegan, and slightly higher in price. With Luxie brushes I feel like you pay a little more for the more luxurious packaging, and various brush branding or color schemes. I would say that both brushes preform similarly, but Luxie Beauty being cruelty free and 100% vegan give it a one up on Morphe. Also, I love the fact that Luxie Beauty allows Ipsy to provide full sized makeup brushes in their Glam Bags. It is a great way for Luxie Beauty to advertise their products and reach a demographic that wouldn’t normally gravitate to the brand.

Setting Products: Morphe Setting Spray & Too Faced Setting Powder

When Jackie Aina helped Too Faced extend their shade ranges for their Born This Way Foundation and Born This Way Super Coverage Multi-Use Sculpting Concealer I had to try them. The foundation is currently on my list of products to try. ( Please don’t go broke buying makeup! Set a budget and only spend that amount. Sis, you are not a beauty influencer and you are not getting products for free, so spend your coins wisely!) I believe Too Faced released their Born This Way Ethereal Setting Powder or extended the shade range around the time Jackie Aina helped extend the concealer and foundation ranges, so I had to try it around the same time. I fell in absolute love with the Setting Powder in Translucent Medium. I loved the silky lightweight formula, and the luminous finish it gave my skin. One thing I will say is do not pack it on because you will start to look cakey. A plus side to Too Faced is that it is cruelty free and the setting powder is made without parabens, sulfates, and phthalates. Another important point to make is that this product is made with hyaluronic acid, which is said to help hydrate the skin and reduce wrinkles.

I have to briefly mention the Continuous Mist Setting Spray by Morphe. This spray is the bomb.com! I love the way it evenly mist over the skin. This product has been a absolute life saver. I know for a fact that I am not the only person who has sprayed a setting spray on their face only to have it come out in this ugly squirt that leaks down your face, or leave a weird residue. With this setting spray you don’t have to worry about any of those issues. I love how it is evenly mist over the skin and helps the makeup settle into the skin. The only down side to this product is the fragrance.

Buxom Plumping Lip Gloss

If someone asked me, “What is the one product you can’t live without or leave the house without?” I would have to say lip gloss. No one wants to be walking around with dry crusty lips or skin. It’s uncomfortable, unattractive, and most importantly painful. For a short spell my lips were contstanlty cracked in the corners, peeling, or bleeding. To remedy this problem I first tried a ton of drugstore products, only to find out they made the cracking and peeling worse. The only drugstore products that worked were CarMax and Vaseline, but I wanted something that was a bit more light weight and gave me a light splash of color. I found everything I wanted and more with Buxom’s Plumpling Lip Gloss. I love the color range, the bits of sparkles/glitter in some colors, and the tingling feeling as it slightly plumps your lips, most importantly I love that it leaves my lips feeling hydrated and supple.

Ipsy Made Me Buy It

I’ve been subscribed to Ipsy for around two years. Overall I’d have to give the company a 7 out of 10 rating. Some of the low rating may be because I haven’t been the best at updating my preferences and taking the quizzes to customize each months bag to my preferences. With that being said I have to say that each month I find at least one product that I love.

Who is Ipsy geared toward you ask? I’d have to say it’s geared towards people who are newer in the makeup game. People who want to try products before they spend a ton of money on them and people who are looking to save some coins. Ipsy always has savings for products offered in their bags and even products you may not have received in that months bag.

Here are a few of the items I’ve received in my Ipsy Glambag throughout the year that I’ve had to purchase.

Brushes

Luxie Beauty & F.A.R.A.H Brushes

Luxie Beauty! Man I could go on and on about this brand. I was so impressed with Luxie Beauty when I received my first brush that I had to buy more immediately. I currently have a nice collection of Luxie Brushes that I reach for often. I’m sure I’m not the only one who buys makeup products like they’re collectibles and never uses them. I’m happy to say that that is not the case with these brushes. Their brushes blend out creams, liquids, and powders like a dream. I notice a visible difference when I use these brushes. They don’t leave brush hairs all over your face, nor do they leave streaks. Your making a good investment if you invest in Luxie Brushes. I also have received quite a few Luxie Beauty Brushes in my Glambag after my purchase, which I’m not mad at. Brands are smart to partner with a brand like Ipsy to get their product out. I’d honestly never heard of this brand or seen beauty influencers talk about it and I don’t know why! An honorable mention goes to F.A.R.A.H Brushes. I like these brushes, not quite as much as Luxie but I’d recommend them. Here are some brands that I have not received in my Ipsy Glambag but I do recommend their brushes; MAC, Real Techniques, Morphe, Elf, and Eco Tools.

Concealer

Smashbox & IT Cosmetics

Concealer is one of those products it’s hard to sell me on. A lot of times the undertones aren’t right, the formulas not right, or they don’t come in a dark enough shade. I’ve recieved quite a few concealers in my Glambag but these are the only two that stood out and made me want to purchase them. I have combination/oily skin, I’m extremely oily in my T-zone (forehead, nose, and chin) and dry around my mouth and the sides of my jaw. I generally stay with matte products becaus that’s what I feel works best with my skin. The Smashbox Studi Skin Concealor worked wonders and has a good shade range. It didn’t dry me out under my eyes and stayed put once it was set. The amount that was applied in my T-zone didn’t have me looking like a grease ball so I was definitely impressed.

IT cosmetics is not one of those brands that I feel are geared towards deep and deep dark complexions so I have generally stayed away from it. When I received Bye Bye Undereye Concealer I was impressed that there was a shade for me. Not only did I find one shade but I found a few shades that work for me and I was impressed with the formula. If you need full coverage this concealer will definitely give it to you. This concealer also made me explore this brand a bit more. They have some beauty brushes, and mat tidying products but I’m still waiting for them to expand their shade ranges before I really get into the brand.

Primer

MAC & Elizabeth Mott

Generally when it comes to primers I’m not looking for a product to full in my pores or fine lines because frankly those aren’t issues I deal with. I like a primer that mattifies and moisturizes. I know some of you may be thinking, “How can one product mattify and moisturize?” I cant tell you that but I can tell you it’s possible. My absolute favorite primer is MAC Cosmetics Prep N Prime. This stuff is a dream, not only does it moisturize my dry areas but it mattifies my T-zone and allows my makeup to stay fresh all day. I’ve gone through a few bottles of the full size product. For primers an honorable mention goes to the Elizabeth Mott Thank Me Later Primer. I like this primer and if I’m trying to switch it up I will grab this one. I pretty much will only apply this primer in my T-zone as I feel it is not as moisturizing as my MAC primer.

Face Masks

BioRepublic, Fresh Garden, and Saem

Skin care is one of those things that is extremely important to me. With that being said I typically like to apply all natural skincare products to my face, especially since I know there is a whole lot of gunk in some makeup products. The face masks listed above by Fresh Garden, BioRepublic and Saem are amazing. Each one serves a different purpose but the ones I have tried have left my skin really supple and rejuvenated. Out of all of these I’d recommend BioRepublic the most.

Perfume

Born Lovely & Juliette has a gun

I think we all love to smell fresh but I generally stay away from perfume because of the chemicals in them. If I do wear perfume I prefer to apply it to my clothes and not my skin. These two perfumes are once I’ve had to purchase and are in my top three favorite scents. My favorite is Vera Wang Princess ❤️ If you love fresh clean scents you will like these. I generally go for fruity, fresh and clean scents.

Lip Products

NYX, Aurora, Hempz, & More

Lip products are probably the item I hoard the most and will impulse buy the most. I know I’m also not the only person that impulse buys and then regrets it; I’m a recovering shopaholic and working on saving more. I’d say that Ipsy helps me do that. I get to try out lip products for a while before I actually go out and buy them or purchase them on a website. Out of the products featured above I’m impressed with NYX Liquid Lingerie the most. I love the shade ranges and feel like they cater and complement a variety of skin tones.

So is Ipsy worth the momey? I’d have to say yes. It’s worth it for the variety of products you recieved and for the full size products you receive. I’ve recieved full size brushes, and full size items for brands like Smashbox, NYX, and IT Cosmetics. Just be sure to review your Glambag monthly and keep your preferences up to date.

XOXO 💋

Boohoo Maternity Lookbook

It’s been a battle for me during pregnancy to find clothes that are comfortable and actually grow with me. I purchased a few pair of jeans around month 4 that by month 7 I could no longer fit. I really have not wanted to spend a ton of money on maternity clothes and when I saw that Boohoo was having a 60% off sale I jumped on a few items. Check out a few looks I threw together featuring Boohoo Maternity Wear.

Look One

This Boohoo Maternity Top (Miracle in Progress Tee $8) is one of my favorite tees. Its comfortable and covers the baby bump. I’ve had a few tees where my stomach just hangs out the bottom and that’s not the look I’m trying to go for.

The pictures below I’m trying to show how the seam comes up the middle with these leggings, verse the ones that have a built in over the bump cover with the seam stopping lower.

These leggings are by far my favorite, they came in a pack of two with a gray pair for about $11.20. What I love about these is that they don’t have the over bump look like a lot of maternity leggings. I finished the outfit off with Steve Madden Puff Tennis Shoes $20, a BEBE Mini Bag $20, and my thrifted American Eagle Jean Jacket $15.

Look Two

For me pregnancy has been all about me feeling comfortable. This look is very relaxed and I love it. I paired my Chico’s Hello I’m Fabulous Tee $5, with the gray leggings that came in a two pack with the black leggings featured above.

I paired the look with Satin Baby Blue Converse $30, my American Eagle Jean Jacket, and my pink BEBE bag.

For another option I paired the outfit with the American Eagle Jacket, Steve Madden Shoes, and a black Jones New York mini bag $20.

Look Three

For this look I have a comfy Boohoo Tank $4, paired with Boohoo Maternity Leggings, and Steve Madden Platform Shoes $25. These Leggings come in a three pack for $12.80. I’m not as crazy about these leggings because they have the baby bump waist. They are comfortable but not as good as the gray and black pair featured above. To finish this outfit off I paired it with my Fashion Nova Jean Jacket $60, and a Tan Universal Thread Mini Bag $14.

Look Four

The Boohoo Leggings featured below are like the ones above, except they are a 3/4 legging. These have the baby bump seam (featured below) instead of the seam that comes up the middle of the leggings. These leggings also come in a pack of multiples for $9.60.

I paired them with a Boohoo Maternity Tank $4, an American Eagle Jean Jacket, Wild Fable Tennis Shoes $30, and gray sock.

Pajamas

I purchased a few sleep wear items that I thought were absolutely adorable. The first is a Boohoo Mama Bear Night Shirt $9, and a Mama Bear Night Set $12. Both of these items were affordable and extremely comfortable. Side note: These two items have a special place in my heart because I’ve called my man Bear since day one. If we were having a son his name was going to be Jessie Bear.

Boohoo Date Night Outfits

Look One: For this look I paired some Boohoo Maternity Leggings ($6) with an ASOS Maternity Cami ($20), and a pink Liz Claiborne Blazer (thrifted $7). I finished the look off with Steve Madden Clearer Heels ($49.99).

Look Two: For this look I used the same leggings and cami top from Look 1 and just paired it with a H&M blazer ($49.99), and Vincent Camuto Animal Print bootie ($50).

Look Three: For this look we again have the same cami paired with Boohoo 3/4 Leggings ($4). I finished the look off with a red XOXO Blazer ($5), Steve Madden Clearer Heels, and a Luana Italy purse ($375).

Look Four: This Look is probably my favorite and the one Bae will see on Valentines ♥️ Day. I have the same cami, 3/4 legging, and Steve Madden Heels. What makes this look really on trend is the thrifted Animal Print Newport News Styleworks Jacket. I love this jacket! It’s very on trend and was thrifted for only a dollar.

Look Five: For this look we let the the shoes do all the talking. For as long as I can remember I have had a thing for loud flashy shoes. These Steve Madden Crystal Booties ($89.99) are absolutely gorgeous. They are a little high, if your date is going to involve a lot of walking I’d recommend switching out the booties for a more sensible shoe. The same cami, 3/4 leggings, and H&M blazer are used for this look.

Hope you enjoyed these quick and easy Maternity looks featuring Boohoo. Overall I’d have to give the company 8 stars out of ten. Point are deducted for shipping speed and the quality of a few items.
