Are you ready for the Oscars? I know I am! It’s one of my favorite television nights of the year! I can’t say that I have seen very many of this year’s films so I really don’t know who to root for, but I love the pageantry of it all!
If you’re planning on hosting an Oscar party, or just engaging in a friendly rivalry with your significant other, family, or friends, be sure to print out this FREE Oscar Ballot from Fandango! It’ll help you keep track of your picks.
Also, Birdman is an Oscar front-runner (at least for lead actor Michael Keaton), and Fandango has a fab deal available if you plan on checking out this film at a Regal Theatre!

Though I had big dreams of sharing some of my favorite plus size maternity clothing styles, I actually managed to keep my maternity wardrobe fairly small. I invested in a couple of XL maternity sweaters from Old Navy, fleece-lined leggings from Walgreens, Secret Fit Belly Yoga Pants from Kohl’s, as well as a couple of blouses and a pair of jeans from Destination Maternity and called it a day. If I had to wager a guess I’d say I spent less than $200 on maternity clothing and that’s being generous because I tried to take advantage of sales and coupons. (Undoubtedly one of the only reasons I could get away with this wardrobe is because I work from home so wearing $5 yoga pants day in and day out wasn’t much of an issue!)
Now that things are getting toward the end, however, I am itching to get back into my old wardrobe. Granted, most of the maternity clothing I purchased doesn’t look overly so and I will continue to wear the pieces this winter after the baby comes. But a few weeks ago I was thinking about spring and how much I couldn’t wait to pick up a few new pieces that didn’t feel so matronly.
On a day where I was feeling a little blue I decided to engage in some non-maternity retail therapy and picked up the Promenade Top in Plum Perfection from Kiyonna ($64). I don’t know where this blouse first caught my eye but I knew I had to have it… even without a coupon.
I thought it would be ideal for covering up my leftover baby pooch, and also a good option should I need to feed the baby on the go. The kimono style is flattering and forgiving on nearly all body types! More importantly though, I thought it just looked pretty and feminine and soft and on that particular day I NEEDED this shirt in my life.
I ordered the Promenade Shirt in a 1x (size 14-16) and I was excited to see that it fit me so well that it is currently doubling as a maternity shirt. As you can see above, I wore it to one of my baby showers last weekend. I love the color and I love the fit! Once the baby is born, the front will be more billowy as it is in the model photo, though it is by no means super tight right now. (In fact, I probably could have sized down to a 0x (10-12) – side note, I spent a good portion of this pregnancy sick or unable to eat and ended up losing quite a bit of weight.) This shirt is super soft and I’m already looking forward to wearing it with a pair of (real!) jeans and some cute shoes. I have a feeling this top will get a lot of wear as I work to fit into the rest of my spring wardrobe over the coming months!
I rarely review clothing, but I love this Promenade Top so much that it seemed like it was worth a shout-out. If you’re interested, it’s also available in white as well as a striped print.
My heart skipped a beat when it saw these Loeffler Randall Rio sneakers. I literally just let out a gasp, or should I say a meowwww (see what I did there? Cat-cheetah. Its been a long day. :)). I WANT them.
Now I’m wrestling with a hard decision- what color do I want? I’m in love with the cheetah, obviously, because it’s divine, but I can’t get enough of the blush. Normally I’d say get both, but in this case, that’s a no. It’s also not a case where I need a new pair of shoes, but I HAVE TO HAVE THEM. Sorry to shout, I’m just that much in love.
Loeffler Randall Rio in Cheetah Mix, $295. Available in sizes 5-11. Also available in blush, black and white, and watercolor. Check them out- seriously. The watercolor print is beautiful! So is the black and white. You can only get one pair Megan. Breathe.
My only fear would be that I’d be so nervous to wear them and mess them up after spending that kind of money on them. Man, are they great. These shoes would be the accessory- I wouldn’t need anything else!
I’m going to treat myself, are you? I say go for it.
I took a class with a make-up artist one time and only remember one tip she gave us- never underestimate the power of a good bronzer. I’ve kept that little secret tucked away in my make-up bag in various forms of bronzers- powders, sticks, etc. My newest crush? Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow.
The fancy name and the beautiful packaging also make this all the more desirable. I love opening my make-up and seeing shiny cases. For some reason, that just makes me smile. I also love that it’s paraben free and perfect for all skin tones.
How to use:
Bronze: Apply the shading colour to the areas you want to sculpt and define using my Contouring (Face Architecture) brush: the hollows of your cheeks, temples, jaw line, sides and tip of your nose. Never forget to blend.
Glow: Apply the highlighter on top of the cheek bones, down the centre of the nose, the lip’s cupid bow and brow bone to give you candle-lit skin
My hope is, that after using this, that I’ll look like a movie star.
I never in a million years could bring myself to spend more than $50 on a beauty product, hence why it’s my crush. Now if it were to just show up on my doorstep I wouldn’t be upset. Here that honey, Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! Wink wink.
Svbscription is a subscription box for men that seems to have changed a bit since I last investigated it. It used to be a quarterly box that was super expensive, but now it appears to be more of a personal shopping service for men, similar to Trunk Club except that Svbscription also includes grooming products and home items. After filling out a style survey with Svbscription they will send you a box full of items they think you’ll enjoy and then you’ll have 10 days to decide if you’d like to keep anything and you only pay for what you keep.
This offer may not be for everyone, but this is the best deal I have ever seen for Svbscription! According to Gilt City the company works with brands such as “Malin & Goetz, steven alan, WANT Les Essentiels De La Vie and more.”
Per the fine print the voucher must be redeemed by April 26, 2015.
