Bye Bye Summer 2019

Well, it’s the last day of summer for the rest of the world, but for me, the hot days and sunny skies continue!

Here in Louisiana, our Fall season is just an extension of summer, lol. Honestly, it doesn’t really get “cool” until the very end of October and when I say “cool”, I mean like low 70’s high 60’s. As a Louisiana native, I actually love the Summer and Fall season most! It’s my most favorite time of the year because of my love for bold stunning colors from a fashion standpoint.

As many of you know, I’m currently carrying twins. My twin pregnancy journey has been one for the books! From feeling like I was on my death bed the first trimester, to getting some relief the second, and now living my best life in the third, this has been a journey!

A question I get asked a lot is, “Are you concerned about weight gain?” The very short answer is NO! My weight has never been a concern for me during this pregnancy. Similar to how my stretchmarks have never been an issue to me during my weight loss journey. I just believe certain things are just a part of your story. So in this case, if I gain any amounts of excess weight, it’s just another chapter in my story that I’ll be able to share.

I’ve always been an advocate for body positivity because I truly believe we should love ourselves from the inside out first. The world has tainted our minds with what beauty should look like, but the fact is, beauty starts within! Now, I do care about the overall health of my skin so I have been using Palmers’s Stretch Mark Lotion to moisturize my growing belly 🙂

What’s your favorite season and what are your thoughts on stretch marks?
