Pregnant and Fab?

FYI:

Here’s a personal, emotional post ..

26 weeks pregnant 🤰 And Single …

Not too many people talk about this ..but it happens ..quite often.

1 in 4 children under the age of 18 are being raised without a father. 4 out of 10 children are born to unwed mothers.

But what’s a girl to do ..feel ashamed .. conceal my bump ..

Maybe Wear a fake wedding band while pretending my “husband” is thrilled that I’m carrying his lil girl .. when inquiring minds ask (like my 80 year old patients)

No I’m pregnant and I’m Single..

did I plan this .. No

Is the father thrilled ..No quite the contrary

Am I going to doctors appointments and ultrasounds alone.. yes

However, I’m thrilled ..scared but thrilled . Being pregnant And carrying a child is a blessing and not every women can do it.

I have my days, I sometimes wake up in the middle of the night and think to myself what the hell was I thinking getting myself into this.

And, i have had people questioning me as why I did not decide to terminate it, since I’m not in the ideal situation. (Including the dad)

Is it tough ..of course

And a lot of times I act braver than I actually am.

But, it’s fine and it’s normal for my emotions to be all over the place .

But in a few months I’ll have a beautiful baby girl to hold, and nothing else will matter.

My Beauty Must Haves

I received a few requests on Makeup 💄 Tutorials.. the older I get the more I get into makeup and you rarely see me without a bright lip on. So, I’m going to be working on some videos and step by step how to’s.. my routine takes the most 5 minutes ! I thought I would start with my beauty faves that I use every single day. These products are all by Yves St Laurent. The primer and foundation is so light and natural but gives me a silky smooth finish. The brand is pricey but I think it’s worth every penny! I also try to hold off for Lord and Taylor’s friends and family and Sephora’s Beauty insider sales to receive discounts.

Touch Eclat Blur Primer I love how this primer has specs of gold inside it. It blurs imperfections. Smooth on leave on for 30seconds then apply foundation. $52

Touch Eclat Le Teint Radiance Awakening Foundation with Broad Sprectum SPF 22 so I never get the Rudolph the red nose reindeer look. Very light no cakey looks here 💁$58

Touch Éclat Radiant Touch Highlighter (I use number 2 luminous ivory for fair to light complexions) perfect to brighten up under your eyes and around the brow bone. It also conceals any imperfections. $42

Rouge Pur Couture Is my go to Bright Lip 💄👄 I love how this makes my eyes pop and brightens my look! $37

These are my faves. I use them every morning on a fresh face. However, Everyone’s skin is different! Stay Beautiful ! Xo

Divorce is hard

I recently gave blogging a break .. contrary to popular belief, divorce is difficult and it has taken an emotional toll on me.. .  I try to stay positive and post mostly fun things like food and selfies…

 I’ve struggled a lot with myself and I can let my insecurities get the best of me.

 I try to stay strong for my thirteen year old daughter ..I don’t always succeed. 

Like many things you cannot grasp the severity of the situation until it happens to you.  I felt the same way when I struggled with infertility for five years. It leaves you feeling very lonely like no one truly understands. 

And that’s why I’m posting this very personal blog because I’m sure there are other people out there that feel exactly like I do. And I’m hoping my readers can relate … divorce is lonely …and it’s depressing. 

However, at 32 years old I think it’s time to put my big girl pants on ..boss up ..because Life goes on💃💃💃

And FYI I’m completely sober writing this 😜

A New Beginning

I am back to blogging after a little hiatus..I don’t typically get deep in my Blog Posts.. But I figured I would share a lil since the older I get the less igaf ..

 I’m currently going through a divorce with my husband of almost 8 years .. People say that divorce is one of the hardest things you will ever go thru and I was skeptical but now I agree..

Right now I am working on my happiness as well as my daughter’s(my #1 Fan).. And I thought that a good way for me to get back to myself and get out of my current funk would be to start writing and blogging again about what makes me happy.. Food..Restaurants.. Cute Outfits.. and just doing dope things.. 

Positive Vibes only please..
