Happy Friday dolls!!  So I will say the second trimester has been a tiny bit better for me in terms of actually have energy.  However, Tuesday night we went to the Counting Crows concert and I have been paying for it the rest of the week.  Wednesday night I no lie fell asleep at 730pm and slept all the way through the night.  I felt great until I had to teach a late barre class and now I’m back to snooze fest over here and it’s not even like I can caffeine myself up to make it through the day.  It’s all worth it though!  We had our anatomy scan last week and so far everything looks great, all structures seem to be developed normally now little peanut can just keep putting on the weight.  It was so cute in the scan he was totally sucking his thumb and I could see him kicking me.  I swear he kicks me all day long and it feels like I can feel his hands like scraping across me.  Still the coolest feeling in the world.  I am off today and plan on getting a ton of work done.  My classes start back up next week (I had like 10 glorious days off) so back to the grind from that standpoint.  Let’s get into some favorites from the week!

I am obsessed with this off the shoulder top from Sanctuary.  It is the perfect transition top to the Fall, it’s lightweight and adore the pattern of it.  Paired with these shorts (non-maternity) and my favorite heels, size up I’m wearing a 9.5 and I’m usually a 9.




Don’t laugh at me but I love the remix of this song.  You know how much I love chill vibes songs like this.




How good do these look and love that they are low carb, adding to my weekend menu.




Great workout for those hard to target areas.  You can add this plank series at the end for a burner.



I have an awesome giveaway running on my Instagram right now.  These bluetooth headphones from Ashley Chloe are AMAZING! You don’t have to have a heated discussion with your significant other anymore because you grabbed the wrong headphones that only work for the iphone7 but a certain someone has an iphone6 and now you can’t listen to music on your latest flight…..I mean just hypothetically.  They have really great quality sound, are perfect for walking around the city or your favorite exercise that keeps you wire free.  It syncs to your phone so you can talk through it and never miss a call.  I stick one in my ear when I’m driving and everyone can hear me so much better than through my handsfree car speakers.  You house the headset inside of the cuff so you always have it’s carrying case.  Basically, it’s genius and you need it.  You can fingers crossed win one by entering my Instagram giveaway.  Or, if you can’t wait to pick it up 20% off with the code barre20.  This would seriously make a great gift for that person who has everything.



I just picked up this gray ruffle shirt.  It’s so soft and a perfect transition piece into the Fall while it’s still scorching out in Florida.  Shopbop also has a new app that is super user-friendly and if you are eyeing something, you can get 15% off your first purchase on the app with the code, app15.  Check out all the details here.  You could also use it on these sunglasses, my new favs.  I also got this TGIF pullover sweater, I love the sleeves and super cozy.




A great basics photography post on how to shoot in manual mode that is geared towards bloggers and anyone who really wants to learn how to take pics manually.



Happy weekend dolls!  Tell me your favorites from the week and what your plans are for the weekend!

    Ultrasounds are the absolute best! I loved seeing how much they change with each one. Glad to hear you’re feeling better friend!

    Awwww I miss baby kicks so much!!!! I have never had a phantom kick that someone women say they have after giving birth. Zoe used to just dance around in there and would jab me and let me know when I made it uncomfortable for her towards the end. I am glad your scan went well. Every time you get to see that sweet little dude on the monitor is the coolest thing ever, isn’t it??? I hope you have a great weekend and get some rest!
