As you all know I am a big fan of thrift shopping and when it came time to start searching for maternity clothes my first stop was @swapconsignment. ๐Ÿ‘š๐Ÿ‘–๐Ÿ‘— I had read on multiple blogs that J Brand makes the best maternity jeans but I wasn't looking forward to the $200 price tag. Lo and behold I found a pair of mint condition J Brand maternity jeans on swap for only $40. Not a bad investment considering I pretty much live in them! These jeans are just one of the many treasured thrifted finds in my wardrobe. #SwapSnowflake Giveaway

Expedia ranked 2017's top 10 most-visited cities in the U.S. and it's no surprise that the Big Apple topped the list at number one. ๐Ÿ—ฝ๐Ÿ™ New York City is certainly one of my favorite places and I love to visit often. While a popular tourist destination, it's true that some of the best skyline views can be seen at Top of the Rock. Click link in bio to see the awe-inspiring photos from our visit. ๐Ÿ“ธ

My oh my, this baby girl is getting big. ๐ŸคฐThis week she's nearly the size of a coconut! ๐ŸฅฅWe recently had an ultrasound and we got to see her little nose, fingers and toes. It still boggles my mind that she's gonna be a little person running around the house someday. I'm definitely enjoying my freedom and peace and quiet while I still can. ๐Ÿ˜Œ

Happy happy Friday everyone! Me and this big bump have cruising all over NorCal with lunch dates in Sacramento and dinner parties in San Francisco. Half the time this is more of a food belly than a baby bump! Dinner at @mezcalitobarsf last night with the blogger crew was delish. By far the best guacamole I've ever had, so fresh and zesty with lime! The ladies @poshtoganache, @thewhimsysoul and @designbybrianna always know how to show a gal a good time in the city. โ˜บ๏ธ #20weeks

New Year, New City! ๐ŸŒ† As many of you know, we just recently moved to Sacramento, Ca and I honestly feel like we stumbled on a gold mine. This has been a week of exploring the surprisingly modern and electric foodie scene happening in these parts. ๐Ÿฅ—๐Ÿ›๐Ÿฅ™ New hip and happening spots are popping up all over midtown and we've been filling our bellies with the best grub in town. Don't worry, I won't keep it all to myself. I'm working on a new travel guide that will make you want to plan your next weekend day trip to Sacramento!

Holy moly! We've only got 2 days left before we say goodbye to 2017! ๐Ÿ˜ฏ This past year was a real rollercoaster ride for us. ๐ŸŽข Early in the year we moved from San Francisco to San Diego. Several months later we bought our first house in Sacramento. ๐Ÿก And now we've got our first baby on the way! Amidst all the chaos we found lots of time to travel all over California and New York City. โœˆ๏ธ Never a dull moment, that's for sure! Lookout 2018, you've got some big shoes to fill. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Throwback Thursday to last year's New Year's Eve look. โœจ A little sparkle inspo for you midnight party gals. I went bold with mix-n-match sequins, both silver and bronze. I found all the pieces to this outfit at thrift stores and I love how it all came together. .โ €
This year my boyfriend, my big prego belly and I will most likely be cuddled up in PJs at home.๐ŸคฐIt will be a Netflix and chill kinda evening, especially since I can barely stay awake past 9pm these days. #pregoproblems But I am definitely looking forward to brunching on New Years Day and writing our resolutions. It's a long standing tradition and my favorite way to start the new year!

Happy Winter Solstice! โ„๏ธโ˜ƒ๏ธ๐ŸŒจToday is the shortest day of the year and also the longest night. This means that everyday going forward we get a tiny bit more daylight as we slowly move into Spring. ๐ŸŒฑ But don't let that fool you, we've got plenty of winter days ahead of us. โ˜•๏ธ So cozy up with a hot cup of tea and enjoy these lazy days indoors. Christmas comes but once a year, give yourself permission to just relax on the couch by the glow of the tree. ๐ŸŽ„

I'm finally getting some pics of the new house up! ๐Ÿก This week I went into a black hole of cleaning and unpacking. I wore my old cleaning clothes for 3 days straight and pretty much looked like a dirty hobo. But on the bright side all the hard work is paying off and the house is starting to feel like home!โ €
.โ €
Today I am actually getting dressed in real clothes and heading to San Francisco for some much needed girl time with my besties. I can't wait to see these gals and spend some time in my city by the bay.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! ๐ŸŽ„โ„๏ธ๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿป We finally got our tree up and decorated! I scored a ton of vintage ornaments at the thrift store, weโ€™ve got a 1950โ€™s themed tree complete with old school tinsel! We made sure to get a real tree because I love the smell of fresh pine throughout the house. It really gives me that warm and nostalgic holiday feeling. Being that this is our first Christmas in our new house and we've got a baby on the way, this holiday season feels extra special.๐Ÿคฐ๐Ÿ’
P.S. - Itโ€™s been getting dark these days around 3pm which is super annoying but the silver lining is that we can enjoy the glow from the tree earlier ๐Ÿ˜‰

We have finally moved into the new house in Sacramento, yay! ๐Ÿก It's been a lot of cleaning and unboxing but I am finally beginning to see a light at the end of a chaotic tunnel. Yesterday I organized my walk-in closed which was a dream come true! After years of living in cramped San Francisco apartments with no closet space it feels awesome to have so much room!

Dark and chilly winter days are perfect for an afternoon at the museum. ๐ŸŽจ๐Ÿ›๐Ÿ–ผ Spice it up with a fun and provocative tour from @museumhack. You can forget all of that "stuffy arty talk" on a Museum Hack tour. Their tours are best described as "not for your grandmother!" and "the strangest, wildest, sexiest stories hidden throughout the museum". ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐ŸคญOn our tours we talked about sex scandals between rich society folk, secret gay affairs, family rivalries and even imitation vaginas (yes, you read that correctly!). #sponsored
