Why I Love Pink Blush Maternity Dresses!

It can be incredibly difficult to find good maternity clothes!

I bought a brand new dress for this pregnancy, and now just a few months later it looks like I’ve worn it through several pregnancies, the fabric is so worn.

When I buy maternity dresses I want them to be pretty, comfortable, and something that will last for my next pregnancy if at all possible.

That’s why I love Pink Blush maternity dresses! The silky dresses I’ve worn from Pink Blush have been very good quality and held up through washes and wear. I can tell this new dress I just got from them will be the same way.

Pink Blush Maternity Floral Maxi Dress

This Ivory floral maxi dress has a little bit of stretch to it, and it’s easy to pull on over your head. There are no zippers to mess with in the back, which I’m grateful for. What pregnant woman wants to mess with trying to pull up a zipper in the back? That makes me laugh just thinking about trying!

The dress is fully lined (though the skirt lining does not come down all the way), and I love how you can’t see through the dress in the bodice. I even wore a black belly band under this dress and I was ok!

I loved wearing these champagne shimmer leather earrings from Nickel & Suede with this dress! They are the perfect size (I picked the size small from the website) and I can tell I’m going to be wearing these all summer long!

At six months along I’m so thrilled to be feeling the baby move often. Almost every night when I lay down in bed the baby starts moving all over, giving me kicks and letting me know it’s there. It’s such a special time of day, I really look forward to it! Sean has finally been able to feel the kicks (it’s taken longer because my placenta is in front of my tummy), and I can’t wait until the children feel it.

If you are looking for a maternity dress for this summer, I highly recommend this one! It will work after your pregnancy (if you are not breastfeeding), and the print is beautiful!

I’ll be wearing this dress to church a lot this summer, and for date nights as well! You could wear a pair of sandals or a pair of flats with this dress.

Pink Blush offers quite a few dresses that would work for breastfeeding as well as maternity and women’s, so take a look if you need a new dress!

The company has generously offered to giveaway a $75 gift certificate to their store, and this is open to USA and International! Read the fine print for the detail, but be sure and enter to win!

*Pink Blush and Nickel and Suede provided the dress and earrings free of charge, all thought are strictly my own and I was not paid to write this.

You can use a mini clip to pull back just a little bit of hair, and this is also good for very fine or baby hair.

Use an X-Small size to pull more hair back, or for a smaller size ponytail.

Hues of Blue x-small flexi clip for an easy hairstyle!

A small works for a ponytail or for a small updo.

A Medium is great for thick ponytails, or for updos.

Turquoise Tranquility Flexi Clip from Lilla Rose! Make a cute ponytail that will hold up all day long with a flexi clip!

I loved curling my hair and twisting it up using a heart flexi clip from Lilla Rose! It was a casual but pretty date night hairstyle.

A large can hold an updo.

And an X-Large can hold even more hair!

A Mega is good for super long or very thick hair!

With seven different sizes, there is a clip that will fit anyone! 

The first six people that are brand new to Lilla Rose that place an order of 3 items (anything on the website) and then email me get the free coupon for the free item!!

Here is a sizing chart! Gather your hair into a ponytail and feel how thick it is compared to the coin measurements below.

Need more sizing help? There is a sizing and styling video on the website!

Flexi Clips are great for putting your hair up during the summer heat (if it ever warms up here!), for keeping it out of the way of babies who love to grab your hair, for children doing sports and activities, and for busy mamas who want to look pretty without spending all day on their hair!







Modest Monday and a Link Up!

Who else is ready for spring to officially come? We had snow flurries and it’s in the 30’s on Sunday! I didn’t pull out very many long sleeve maternity shirts from my tub at all, thinking it would be warmer weather right now. If this keeps up I’m going to need to go dig some more out!

Rainbow Denim Maternity Skirt from Deborah & Co.

We drove home all day Sunday from a homeschool convention we were at in Cincinnati, so this picture was taken at a rest stop. I don’t look happier because it was cold and drizzling outside!

Rainbow Denim Maternity Skirt from Deborah &  Co.

The Rainbow Denim maternity skirt has been a staple in my closet for this pregnancy, as it has been the last few pregnancies! I’m so thankful to have a skirt that takes a lot of wear and tear without showing it!

I’m so thankful to have only gained 6 pounds so far this pregnancy. I’m trying hard not to gain my usual 32 pounds this time around, but we will see how it goes as I get closer to the end. I’m getting close to 6 months, which is exciting! The pregnancy really is going by quickly right now!

Today is the very last day that you can grab the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle, you don’t want to miss it!! The support, encouragement, knowledge, and new resources you will glean are definitely worth the $29.97 you pay. So far a HUGE favorite resource I discovered is the Finding Time: Home and Children video course that is normally $97 to purchase! I was definitely convicted and challenged from going through that course.

Grab your Homemaking Bundle now before you forget and the day ends!

What are some of my favorite items this year? Here are just a few!

The author also shares how they never have had a huge budget to work with, which should give plenty of families hope!

Early Bird Bonus!

Besides all the other amazing bonuses, when you order the bundle by Thursday, April 12th you get your choice of a style Challenge from Get Your Pretty On, and you can choose from 8 different options! I have gone through these style challenges before and they are very well done, and you can easily substitute a denim skirt for jeans, etc. if you want! This is a $39 value!


You can check out the Bundle here, and make sure you see all the bonuses available. I already ordered most of the physical bonuses and you should have seen how excited my older boys were when a Kiwi Crate came in the mail that was just for them!!

Homemaking is hard work. Don’t do it alone, and don’t do it without the proper resources and the knowledge!
