March Haul + Target Dresses

Image
Target has so many pretty dresses, which are perfect for the Spring weather we have now. It seems winter is finally over and pleasant weather is here. :)


Out of all the ones I bought, I only decided to keep one but they were all really cute - I wish I had more space in my closet! The material of the two striped one and the black one are definitely wrinkle-prone as you can see in the photos but I liked the neutral stripes enough to keep it.

February Haul + Burberry Puffer Coat Reviews

Image
February's haul is all from H&M. I mainly shopped the sale since I needed free shipping for a new laundry basket for the baby room.


Now that my pregnancy is over, I realize I am still missing a warm winter coat since the Canada Gooses didn't work out for me two years ago. I decided to try Burberry's down puffer coats since I own so many of their coats and jackets because they fit so well (with free sleeve alterations). I ordered the Burberry Limefield, Kington, and a trench style to try. While I was most attracted to the style of the Detachable Hood Down-filled Puffer Coat, after realizing the XXS was actually too tight for me, I was most hopeful about the Buberry Kington coat since it looked so comfy and warm.

The Burberry Limefield in XXS was actually very tight in the chest and shoulders so it had to go back but it's a nice, sleek puffer coat with a luxurious fur ruff around the detachable hood. The sleeves are a bit too long but it isn't noticeable with the…

January Haul + Baby B!

Image
I didn't purchase anything the month of December, which was also the month the baby B arrived :)


Here's the family photo I mentioned in the last post with our matching outfits but we actually didn't take this until the day after Christmas since baby B arrived on Christmas Eve (!)




I spent a lot of time shopping online for nursing tanks in January since I realized I would need some if I were to go out with baby B and I didn't need any with baby A since I started out bottle feeding first and don't think I need to breastfeed her in public. I ended up liking Target's tanks better over Old Navy's since they're softer and more comfy. I didn't get a chance to try H&M's since they're sold out but that must be a good sign. January's haul was just the two nursing tank and an Old Navy sweatshirt, which is my second one - I really like how comfy they are. :)

November Haul + Roasted Broccoli and Cauliflower Mac N Cheese

Image
I was still very much addicted to online shopping in November and couldn't help placing orders left and right but I only ended up keeping two things - a scarf that I've been wearing daily ever since and a shirt to wear for our Christmas family photo post-pregnancy.



I wish I took more bumpies throughout this pregnancy - here's just the 2nd one I ever took:

I did feel a little guilty that I hadn't been putting as much effort into recording my progress throughout this pregnancy but I had less time and energy since I wanted to spend as much quality time as I could with little A before baby B would change our family dynamic.

Speaking of little A, here's a recipe of Roasted Broccoli and Cauliflower Mac and Cheese that she couldn't get enough of, though she really only ate the pasta part, while I gladly ate her leftover veggies. :)

Baby Sprinkle + Pizza Recipe!

Image
I wasn't planning to have any type of celebration for baby girl #2 but with much pushing and prodding from a friend, I reluctantly decided to throw a small party at my home for some close friends and family to celebrate the soon-to-be new addition to my growing family. I didn't make a full registry since we only need small items since we had little A not long ago and just did the bare minimum with decorations of balloons, a banner, and small favors. I'm actually very happy I did it because it was so nice to see the friends and family I haven't seen in a while and probably won't see again until the arrival of baby B. :)




It was also a lot easier and more enjoyable for me this time around because I opted to order food instead of cooking this time, with the exception of some Red Lobster biscuits and pizza, which turned out much better than I expected thanks to my new pizza stone! I definitely recommend one to get that fluffy dough with a crispy bottom, which you won…

October Haul + Maternity Coat Shopping

Image
Since Lord & Taylor is closing down it's iconic brick and mortar location on 5th Avenue between 49th and 49th Streets, I couldn't help taking a look at the sales myself after a coworker told me the cute Sam Edelman booties she got were only $30 from there. Upon arrival, I noticed the shoe sale was definitely extensive and there were multiple clearance sections per size except my size 5. There wasn't even a size 5 section but I did find a few 5s in the tiny 5.5 section, whereas there are rows and rows of every size 6 and up. Since my main purpose was thwarted, I decided to browse the clothing and noticed almost all clothing is haphazardly thrown together on racks and are not separated by size at all with the exception of a few racks highlighting certain brands such as a rack of BlankNYC jackets. I didn't have time to check out any of the accessories or beauty sales on the 1st floor, but aside from shoes, the 2nd floor has contemporary/junior styles, while every othe…

September Haul + Florida Getaway

Image
My anniversary trip this year was a 4-day trip to Destin and Santa Rosa Beach, Florida, which was a nice, relaxing trip without the kids that A and I really needed.






We really didn't do anything except shop, eat, watch movies, and relax, which was perfect. 




Below is all the stuff I purchased from the outlets as well as H&M, which was quite heavy to take home since we only packed one small suitcase between the two of us. My purchases from this trip are all I purchased the month of September and there's also A's push present gift to me as mentioned in the previous post. :)
