Last Summer Days at the Pool

toddler swimwear, baby swimwear, toddler swimsuitAs this hot weather starts to fade out, we are enjoying the last summer days at the pool with my big boy. Ethan loves this cute spot with water attractions and can spend all day there. Being 39 weeks pregnant it’s a little bit challenging to chase him but at the same time it’s a great exercise:) How adorable is his swim suit? It’s not only cute, the fabric is excellent at blocking UVA & UVB rays – perfect for super hot summer days! Check out Swim Zip store, they have a great selection of swimsuits!!!

Thanks a lot for reading!

36 weeks guys, can you believe it??? I didn’t think I could get any bigger, ohhhh I was sooo wrong!:) Last month I got a few dresses 2 sizes up and was hoping that they will fit me by the end of the pregnancy, but a few days ago I was trying them on and couldn’t believe my eyes how big my baby bump got. I’m so happy I stumbled upon this non maternity shift dress at Nordstrom Rack. It’s a life saver, I’ve been wearing it nonstop-it’s super cute and fits my growing bump perfectly! maternity style, 36 weeks pregnant look, baby bump style, donna morgan shift dressmaternity style, 36 weeks pregnant look, baby bump style, donna morgan shift dress

Personal Thoughts & Style Bloom Linkup

fashion blog, dc fashion blog, creative blog, art y Elena FayIt’s been a while since I posted something new here and I thought I’d take the time and share some thoughts that’ve been bugging me for a while.

I’m almost 36 weeks pregnant now and sometimes I feel like a hamster on the wheel. I want to make our home perfect for our fast growing family and also keep growing this blog and my Etsy shop. There are days when I wake up with so much energy and so many ideas and I want to accomplish them all but, by the end of the day, I feel totally drained and can’t even move my hand. Running around with my 2 year old toddler getting harder and harder especially with this huge baby bump:). Many doors have opened since I started blogging and I want to keep going, but there are always things I keep thinking about.

Will I be able to manage it all with 2 little kids? Is it possible to be a successful blogger/ entrepreneur and a good mom?

And you know what? I believe it is possible! We (moms) just need to set clear expectations and make a good plan. It’s OK to take it easy and stop being worried about posting less. It’s OK to say no to some projects. It’s Ok to have a pizza day once a week and forget about cooking at least for one night, right?:) I decided to take small steps to archiving my goals and the most important thing is to take a proper care of myself because I want to enjoy every second of being a mom and a business woman and it’s not gonna happen If I’ll be stressed out all the time.

Ladies, we can do this, right? Share you advice about how do you manage your time with your family and business (in a comment) and don’t forget to submit your link to your style post!
