Pipesnbaby X Eshakti

Sometimes it’s hard to feel confident about yourself when you’ve gained 20 pounds, have a growing belly and live in oversized clothes. I didn’t think I would be as glam as pregnant celebs like Chrissy Teigen, but I didn’t think I’d become a total hobo who wore the same thing everyday. No joke, folks. But, […]

The Big Reveal

I’ve been meaning to do a gender reveal post, but since the hubs is out of town I had to make do and use photos from last year. At least it’s yellow right? I don’t know who decided yellow was a gender neutral color, but I guess it worked out for me. I don’t really […]

Pipes X Flying Zacchinis

I don’t really talk a lot about my (Insta)hubby, but he is very much involved in my blog as I am. He is my photographer and co-director of my shoots. Sometimes I leave product shots and editing totally up to him. He actually picked out this bag from Flying Zacchinis. Since his main mode of transportation […]

Boycott

I don’t know about you but I’m gonna boycott maternity clothes for as long as I possibly can. I have nothing against it. It’s just a personal choice I’ve decided to make to save myself from unnecessary purchases I don’t plan on wearing long term. My mom bought me three maternity leggings so hopefully that […]

23

I wish I was 23. This post isn’t about Michael Jordan either. It’s actually the first fashion post about styling the baby bump at week 23. Although I’m actually 25 weeks now, I wanted to share one of my holiday pregnancy looks with you. It’s actually been quite difficult to style a growing belly as […]

Thanksgiving

I know I’m a day early, but I just wanted to wish my blogging/Insta community a Happy Thanksgiving! May you count your blessings, enjoy time with friends and family, eat some yummy food and enjoy the Black Friday sales as we officially welcome the holiday season. This year is not a typical year for me […]

Peter Pan Polished

I have to admit that I wear workout gear 3 out of the 5 work days since I work with children with disabilities and I’m going to get sweaty anyway. When I teach my college class, I try to look business formal because I want the students to think I’m much older than them and […]

Defense

When I wore this top to church, I must have offended an older lady in the choir. After rehearsal she pulled me aside and said I needed to pull the back of my top up. I was defensive at first because it was the end of rehearsal and I was going to leave anyway. Fashion […]

Candid

Social media has programed us to put our best photos and lives forward. Nobody talks about the struggles and issues we face under those wonderfully edited photos we upload. Today I want to break that picture perfect image and share some candid shots that may not be so Insta-worthy. Most of these photos were shot […]

Pipes X Coalition LA

This summer has been much cooler than previous LA summers. My AC isn’t blasting 24/7 and I’m not taking a shower in my sweat. These not so hot summers make a light utility jacket the perfect companion. My Coalition LA utility jacket and I have been inseparable. Coalition LA is a Peta approved apparel company […]
