The Ladylike Bond No. 9 ‘Nolita’ Perfume and Lipstick Duo Perfectly Captures the Energy of NYC

Bond No. 9 Nolita Perfume and Lipstick Duo

Anyone familiar with Bond No. 9 perfume and cologne, knows just how inspiring a scent can be to your mood. Bond No. 9 perfectly captures the energy of a city in a gorgeously designed bottle. Inspired by the various neighborhoods throughout New York City, Bond No. 9 perfume and cologne captures the essence of the city that never sleeps in ways you would never think possible.

The Bond No. 9 Nolita Perfume and Lipstick Duo is the first eau de parfum and lipstick duo from the company. The flirty pair is fashioned after the hip Nolita neighborhood that begins just across Houston Street, two blocks south of the Bond No. 9 headquarters. Nolita is a neighborhood that has become a favorite among Millennials’ and one of the hottest new Downtown hotspots. This perfume and lipstick duo is just that; a classic feel with an unexpected modern twist. The scent is a ladylike classic Freesia paired with an electrifying wake-up of tangerine, and the accompanying lipstick is the perfect shade of unabashed New York red. The bottle is even sexier, adorned with a burst of pink, red and tangerine gold-rimmed kisses.

Bond No. 9 is the be-all and end-all of the perfume industry. With an exlusivity that abounds even the most time-honored cologne brands, it is definitely a brand to explore when craving a new and unique personal scent. The Nolita Perfume and Lipstick Duo is fresh on counters in limited quantities for $350.

The Perfect White Tee

The Best White Tee

I am a t-shirt and jeans kind of girl. It’s what I wear on a daily basis. I’m not kidding. So, I’m always on the search for the perfect white tee that is comfortable, flattering and not too pricey. I drink A LOT of coffee (hello, parenting exhaustion), and somehow manage to spill that coffee all over myself quite often. Marlow manages to always get some kind of goo on my outfit, too, so I was looking for a tee that I could literally buy 50 of in case I stain one. I found this unicorn of a t-shirt at Banana Republic and haven’t looked back.

I actually love ALL of the tees at Banana Republic. The linen tee collection is uber comfortable! But, this Modal Cotton tee is SO soft and comfy, and still super flattering and sexy. You can pair it with absolutely anything, but it especially looks great with a pair of your favorite jeans (these are my favorite jeans). The Banana Republic Modal Vee Tee comes in 11 different colors, and guess what?! It’s on sale!

A Nursery Humidifier that’s Functional and Sleek

Stylish Nursery HumidifierLately Marlow has been super congested, and I can’t figure out if it’s allergies or just the insanely dry Phoenix air. I’m having the exact same problem, so I think it’s a combination of both. Anyway, I decided it was finally time to get a humidifier for her room. I was getting desperate because she hadn’t been sleeping well, and I think a lot of it is from not being able to breathe very well.

I did some research (i.e. read through hundreds of Amazon reviews), and decided on the TomCare Square Oil Diffuser and Humidifier. I liked it because I didn’t want to spend a lot of money (it costs $30.99), I wanted something fairly small (her room is TINY) that wouldn’t leave her room feeling like a rainforest, and I wanted something that I could leave out that looked chic. I know. Not all the best reasons when it comes to buying something regarding my child’s breathing… but based on reviews, it works great as a humidifier, it’s easy to clean, and people generally like it. Good enough for me.

Stylish Essential Oil Diffuser

So far I have been pleasantly surprised. It is pretty darn sleek for a humidifier. The cube looks great on her dresser, it works all night without needing to refill it, and I see her congestion improving slowly. It does have a timer function, which is nice, but I have literally been running the thing since we got it. It hasn’t shut off or failed once and puts off a nice cool mist that is whisper quiet and won’t keep her awake at night. It has a nightlight function that I don’t use, but it is nice to have as an option. It also doubles as an essential oil diffuser, but I haven’t used that function either. Basically, it works great as a humidifier, looks great, and I think I might buy one for every room in my house. So, if you’re in the market, I do recommend it as a small room humidifier. I’ll keep you updated on how it holds up, and whether or not I try it out as an oil diffuser.

The TomCare Square is $30.99 on Amazon, and you can check it out and read reviews HERE.

The Best Casual T-shirt and Jeans

Casual Saturday…

Since having Marlow, I need easy to wear outfits that are comfortable and easy to just throw on and look stylish enough to spend a day out. We don’t get many days out yet, but it’s nice to put on makeup and wear a real outfit every now and then (other than activewear or the sweatpants I bought my freshman year of college that say Abercrombie on the butt) Yes, I still own those, and man was I grateful for them while recovering after having a baby! Days lounging in your PJ’s are nice, but when you’re stuck inside with a baby most days of the week, it’s nice to get out!

So, today we had a brief outing to the mall to get my husband some new shoes and eat lunch at Shake Shack. Perfect little Saturday. This is my go-to casual t-shirt and jeans outfit when I need to get ready quickly, but still want to be comfortable. These are the most comfortable boyfriend jeans in the world. I pretty much wear them on a daily basis, because they’re comfy, forgiving, great for the warmer Arizona weather AND they’re stylish. One Teaspoon does ragged well. Somehow they’re able to distress their denim perfectly. And, add in the varsity tee, a pair of converse and some easy accessories and you’re set for anything! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

Maternity Fashion - The Best Maternity Clothing Stores to help you define your Maternity Style

Maternity Fashion – The Best Maternity Clothing Stores

Maternity Fashion - The Best Maternity Clothing Stores to help you define your Maternity Style

Maternity Fashion is so easy right now. There are SO many options out there for stylish Maternity Clothes. Gone are the days of covering yourself with a dress that could double as a circus tent. We are lucky enough to have jeans available in all of our favorite non-pregnancy brands, styles that are actually STYLISH that don’t look like Maternitywear, and even activewear that will last throughout our entire pregnancy! My mom reminds me everyday that her options were limited to a few dresses she made her self back in the 70’s and 80’s. I will admit that being pregnant these days is a lot easier, and fashion-friendly, than it was back then.

My maternity style has been pretty laid back and easy. I work out at least three  days a week, and tend to just wear my maternity activewear on those days. I did have a few events where it was necessary to find a dress or a work-appropriate outfit to wear. I was lucky enough to receive quite a few maternity hand-me-downs from my sister-in-law, but I did manage to (of course) find some great stores that offer fashionable Maternity clothes that won’t break the bank. These are my favorite Maternity Fashion sources, and some of my favorite styles:

1. Asos.com, H&M – My favorites! Fashion-friendly Maternity Styles that won’t break the bank.


2. Old Navy – Great for Maternity Activewear

3. Destination Maternity & Pea in the Pod – Great source for Maternity Jeans and high fashion brands that offer maternity lines.

4. Asos.com, Nordstrom.com – Dresses and Special Event Maternity Clothing

5. Stitch Fix, Le Tote – Stylish Maternity Clothing Subscription Services if you don’t have time to shop or want someone to dress your bump for you. Easy peasy and oh so stylish!
