Trying Nadine West

I recently posted about how disappointed I was with my first Stitch Fix shipment
Facebook was running a sponsored post for Nadine West that if you did a survey about why you wanted the service you could save the $3 styling fee. 

I was pretty pleased with my first shipment. First of all, it's only $3 shipping/styling fee so even if I don't keep anything, no biggie - I'm not out a ton of money. 

I received 2 shirts and 2 pieces of jewelry in this month's shipment. 


My first shirt, I'm honestly not a fan of but by the way they did the style profile where I clicked images of graphic tee's, I can see how they would think I would like it.



This shirt was $28.11 In my opinion much more reasonably priced! 
I sent it back with some feedback about what images on my shirts I will/won't wear.

My second shirt was my favorite! 



The front of the shirt is *very* sheer as in if you're standing close you'll see my bra & everything under... but I'm almost always wearing a tank or nursing top under my shirts so while that wasn't my favorite, it's not a deal killer for me! Love the floral style. This shirt is $26.86 & I decided to keep it!

You can kind of see in my awful photos that I have on a nice statement necklace - this was one of the pieces of jewelry I received this month. It's cute, goes nicely with this shirt and I like it. I don't love that it costs almost as much as the shirt ($24.99). I have a similar style necklace and in my thrift shopping trips I frequently see very similar necklaces for $5-ish so I decided to pass.


My necklace and bracelet from this shipment. The bracelet was nice enough, but just not really my style. It was $16.99 The stones were nice and weighty and I felt like the price was pretty reasonable for it. 


I love that you get several days to send the items back. I received mine on Tuesday and didn't have to send it back until the next Monday. Much more realistic than the 3 day turn around that Stitch Fix asks for.

There are a couple of things that I feel like they're still working out as a new company. It wasn't easy to find where to put my feedback on each item. You click shipment history, on the left side you can click the shipment which is hyperlinked and that's where you can find a place to give your feedback. I just feel like this should be on the front page of my individual profile in a really obvious place. 

Overall, I'm really happy with the experience and will use Nadine West again!

Trying out Stitch Fix

I received a Stitch Fix box for the first time last week. I was so excited to get the box, clothes that show up at your door (aka no dragging children out to stores where they inevitably misbehave), they have your sizes and measurements so everything should fit and they're fun stylish things! What's not to love right?!



I'm needing to beef up my summer wardrobe pretty significantly so I was hoping to get several pieces from Stitch Fix and then supplement with less expensive purchases from my usual re-sale shops that carry nicer brands etc and Target. When I subscribed for my first fix, one of the very last questions was about your budget. I *knew* these clothes were going to be higher quality than what I usually get and it's a service so of course it's going to be more expensive than my usual $3-$5 shorts etc. I also let my stylist know that I needed clothes for a summer road trip vacation and a dress that is good for church but also for graduations (because we have 3 to attend this month!). 

My fix came and I love almost all the clothes but oh my gracious the cost! It is ex-pen-sive! 
I was soooo disappointed & ended up keeping none of them which meant that I basically gave up the $20 styling fee. 

The box came over a weekend while we were out of town so I was scrambling to get them tried on before the 3 day window to send back what I don't want so my pictures are *awful* as I tried them on in a decorative mirror in my dad's guest room. Sorry!

Tinslee Dress


This dress was super cute. The fabric was high quality but was clearly cool enough to make it a nice piece for spring and summer. This would have been perfect for graduations. I think it would have transitioned nicely into the fall with a cute pair of boots.  


$68.00
Y'all maybe I'm crazy but $50 is about top of the range that I can justify spending on a dress and  even that's a tough sell for me!

The big thing that made this a no-go for me, even more than the price was the neck line. I loved it, super cute, but I'm large chested & it would require a special bra of some kind to keep my straps from showing. I live in Texas, no way am I going to be committed to wearing a jacket or something all summer long. I was particularly frustrated with this because when you pick what styles you want you can select the modesty level you want. I specifically said I preferred my shoulders covered, not because I necessarily do, but because I knew bra's would be an issue for me! Do any of you know of a bra solution (that isn't strapless, or maybe an amazing strapless bra that is comfortable and actually supportive for a busty gal) that would work for dresses/shirts like this? 

Beckett V-Neck Blouse by Pixley


It is super hard to see in any of my pictures but this is a royal blue shirt with poppy looking flowers all over it in different colors. 


This shirt was just "okay". I liked the cut and like the bright colors but at $48.00 I had better love the shirt to keep it!

Finnegan Printed Cuffed Short


I'm wearing these shorts in the picture with the V-Neck blouse. They're cute and high quality but I have an almost identical pair (slightly less high quality) that I bought for $5 last spring and the shorts that Stitch Fix sent didn't fit well. Again with the price... $58 I was so disappointed to get something that didn't fit well and no way can I justify spending anywhere near that if it doesn't even fit!

My other two items I am so. bummed. about sending back. I'm on the hunt for similar clothes that will work better for me.

Ryland 2fer Maxi Dress by Gilli


I loved this dress. John loved this dress. I loved the cut, the color, the style. I loved it all!


So the problem was two-fold. Again with the price, $78.00 which because I loved it so much I tried so hard to justify it. It didn't hurt so bad when I considered that I had already spent $20 towards buying the dress so it was basically only $58 and I could kind of justify that price but the overlay of the dress is that sheer material so nice and breezy *but* it also snags really easily. I have snagged every single dress in this fabric I have ever owned, why would this dress be different? I just couldn't spend basically $80 on a dress I knew I would end up damaging in as little as one wear. I mean come on - I have kids!

Maycon Halter Top


This was my absolute favorite piece in the fix. I loved the colors and though it's hard to tell there are little tassles on the bottom of the shirt that I thought were so much fun! I have a hat that I recently picked up on Target clearance that would go perfectly. I could totally see myself wearing this. BUT back to the bra thing. I hate having my bra straps show. I couldn't think of a single way to hide them in this shirt, not even a racer-back bra would be hidden, and with big breasts there aren't cute lacy racer-back bras that could complement the shirt. It was $54 so again with the stupid expensive thing. I still almost went ahead and got it but then I started considering what a special bra would cost and I talked myself out of it.


I was scheduled for another fix that was for early July & I went ahead and cancelled it. I probably would have skipped that one regardless because that's around the time of our vacation and I know I won't have time to mess with trying the clothes on & sending them back in a 3 day window. I kept my scheduled fix for early September but might just cancel it altogether before then. Those of you who use stitch fix, tell me, do you ever get clothes cheaper than this? Did my stylist ignore my price range or is this really the lowest point of their prices? I've heard that there are more $30 & $40 is this the exception rather than the rule?

If I haven't totally rained on your parade & you want to try stitch fix here's my referral code (which would earn me a $25 credit after your first fix ships). I *want* to love it. I *want* to give this company my money and make my life easier but gosh, I just can't spend that.

Glam Bag Review from an Un-Glam Girl


I'm trying to play catch up with my Ipsy bag reviews. I've temporarily stopped my Ipsy subscription, mostly because since I'm not a big make up wearing girl, I was beginning to build up an abundance of things - particularly eye shadow that I just won't use. I plan to re-subscribe or pick another subscription box/bag in the summer or fall. I just got my first Stitch Fix box this week in leau of my Ipsy subscription and was super disappointed but I'll wait to review that until I've caught up on make up.

I got so many complements on the actual bag my December makeup came in.
When I originally subscribed to Ipsy I was having very mixed emotions about getting a bag each month, I figured they would just become more clutter in my already cluttered life. So far, I found a job for each bag to better organize my life but if I were still subscribing I think it would eventually become a thing. My other thought was that the bags would be good things to put in boxes for Operation Christmas Child! 

Tarte Maracuja Oil



Tarte Pure Maracuja Oil 0.23 Fl Oz. 7ml

I was pretty on the fence about this product when I first received the bag. I already struggle with somewhat oily skin and even if I didn't, who wants to look oily?! Fortunately Ipsy sent a little video about this oil to those who got it to help us figure it out. I've used it as a bit of a moisturizer on my face when it was cold and windy this winter and it never left my face looking "oily" - just healthy. I've also dabbed a bit in my hair to help control my "angel hairs" - my super curly baby hairs that look frizzy and crazy around my face. I go days between washing my hair (thank you dry shampoo!) and it hasn't ever caused an issue with making my hair oily. 

 I'm not sure I'd buy it when I run out, but I don't hate it either *and* I actually use it sometimes (there are several things in other bags that just get cast aside...). 

Ciate London - Liquid Velvet Matte in Pin Up





I really like this lipstick. It is just enough color to look made up without over doing it. It's become a go-to for me when I'm meeting with clients and want to look nice but not all the way to a glossy obvious lipstick. I also appreciate the price point being reasonable! 

OFRA Bliss Eyeshadow/Highlighter


OFRA Cosmetics Bliss (Champagne) Eyeshadow & Highlighter - Single Refill for Palettes & Kits

I love this shade. It's called "Bliss" but it's a champagne color and has a nice subtle shimmer to it. It's my go-to daily eyeshadow color. It is pretty reasonable in price too. 

So showing my Un-Glam status here... it's a palette refill but I don't know where to buy the palette case thing which would make it much easier to use - so my make up using friends, where would I find one? 

It can supposedly be a highlighter as well, but I've never used highlighter in my life and have no idea where to start... again maybe someone can point me in the right direction here? 

Concealer Brush


So remember when I said that some things just get cast aside and never used? This is one of them. I suppose I will eventually use it, I have powder foundation that I use if I have time to do my makeup at home but I don't use it in the car (because mess...) and here of late my makeup time has been in parking lots or as husband is driving us to church. I have stuck it in my "big" makeup bag that stays home and next time I take a good chunk of time to get made up I'll use it. 

Lip Treatment


']/

This has become an absolute favorite! This lip treatment doesn't taste bad, leaves almost no residue so it doesn't feel waxy on my lips like some chap-sticks do. It hydrates so well and leaves my lips feeling amazing! This product is Hawaii based and has tons of natural ingredients. It is paraben, sulfate and phthalate free! I will for sure be purchasing this when my sample runs out but you use such a small amount each time, my sample tube has lasted a long time! The price is really very reasonable too! 

I was really happy with my December Glam Bag!

Kidlet Update

I miss blogging. I think about it often, but sitting down to write just doesn't happen often. Truth be told, there are several things I really aught to be doing right now instead of writing this but #selfcare 
I think I miss the journaling aspect the most. It's one of the main reasons I began blogging, to journal our life for myself and my children when they're grown one day. 

I haven't done an update on Ada since she was 3 months old. I have done a good job keeping up with her baby book calendar though. 

  • Ada will be 2 in July, she is 1 year 9 months old.
  • She is a big kid! She's tall for her age and I'm frequently asked in stores if the girls are twins or "how close are they?" - Cora is small, Ada is big. They can wear each others clothing except long pants. 
  • Ada goes by Ada-May, Ada-gator, pterodactyl (not so much anymore but she still has a shrill cry), sissy.
  • Ada eats like a champ. She loves her vegetables, particularly broccoli. She will steal bites of our salads. Zuchini, squash, asaparagus and green beans are a few of her other favorites. 
  • We still co-sleep and she nurses herself to sleep. She sleeps a lot better when John puts her down & doesn't really come searching for milkies during the night. She hates pajamas, hates being covered up or being touched while she sleeps. 
  • She is a great napper! She will come tell me she's ready for a nap between 11 and 1 each day depending on what time she woke up and how busy we've been that day. She will take a second nap in later afternoon if we've had an early, busy day. 
Napping at the Birth Center while Mommy cleans after births

  • She doesn't seem ready to potty train. She will sit on her sister's potty chair and pretend, but she doesn't show any other signs of readiness. She has to wear hypoalergenic diapers, size 5. I have started and stopped using cloth several times, I'm just too busy to keep up with it. 
  • Her favorite TV shows are Doc McStuffins, Daniel Tiger and Sesame Street. 
  • She is pretty verbal! She's definitely more verbal than Cora was at this age, so I'm just comparing between the two of them. She can say Mama, Daddy, Cora "corwawa", papa, dog, ball, no (she's really good at this one...), uh huh, uh oh, hot dog, just to name a few. There are so many more but it's hard to keep track. 




  • Coralie is 3 years & 8 months old and will be 4 in October
  • She's pretty small for her age. She wears 3T dresses, but needs 2T pants for length most of the time. 
  • Cora goes by Cora-lizzard, lizzy, sister, turkey
  • She is really good at playing "possum" (pretending to sleep). She has fooled us many times, but on the bright side, she's quiet when she pretends to sleep! 
  • She hates us brushing her hair, it is a frequent fight. 
  • She loves the idea of swimming but then freaks out when we actually want her in the water. It makes her nervous if she sees me swimming off into water away from the side of the pool. We're going to need to do swim lessons soon.
  • She loves reading books and identifying different things in the pictures.
     
  • She can count to ten, but refuses to say the number three. She can, she just thinks it's funny that it bothers us so much that she won't.
  • She will repeat the alphabet with us and can say the next letter if I start with A, she'll say B, then I say C etc. but she won't just recite it.
  • When I'm leaving for work, particularly in a hurry for a birth she will come up and give me a hug and ask if I'm "going to help a lady have a baby?"
  • She frequently pretends to go to work. She'll come up to me with her purse and keys and give me hugs and kisses. Sometimes I can understand the word "baby" in what she says she's going to work to do. 
  • She is potty trained... mostly! She will use the potty chair at home, but refuses to use our toilet. She uses the toilet with a child seat at my dad's house. She is terrified of public toilets so we drive around with potty chairs in the cars so we can escape to the van/car if she needs to potty. We're working with her on recognizing needing to go before we go in & trying verses telling me when there's not much time to do something about it. She still wears pull ups to church or any time she's in someone else care. She usually won't talk to her teachers/babysitters etc to tell them she needs to go to the bathroom so she has accidents. She has gotten to where she can make it through church without needing to potty until she's with us.

    • I'm dreading vacation this summer. We will have long stretches in the car & quick outings so for all of that she can just use her potty chair but while we're in Washington DC she's going to have to just go in her pull up if she hasn't gotten over the toilet thing. She'll tell me she needs a "diaper change" after she makes a mess... 
  • Her anxieties about being left somewhere are much better. There are still usually some tears, but she settles down quickly and is fine. 
  • Both girls love going to RaceTrac and getting a taquito and coke (Ada can say "coke" well!). This is a typical grandpa outing for them while I'm at work. 
  • The car wash is another favorite outing. She will ask to be unbuckled from her car seat & climb up to the front to sit in our laps while the car is washed. 














Oh my goodness I could keep going, but I'll just have to remember to include other things in future posts!

Glam Bag Review from an Un-Glam Girl

I have been loving getting my Ipsy subscription bags! I received this bag back in February, I'm not sure why I can't pull up pictures of my December and January bags, but maybe I'll track them down and review them another time. For my February bag something I particularly loved was the price point on most of the products, it was something I'd actually be willing to go out and spend if I loved the product. Nothing is worse than falling in love with an expensive cosmetic you know you'll never purchase! 


There are a few things in this bag that I loved this time! 

First up, BellaPierre Water-proof volume lash mascara




I like the length of the wand and it provides good coverage but it takes forever to dry. I'm not sure if this is a common thing with water proof mascara in general? I haven't used it often in the past but any time I attempt to wear it, I end up smudging it everywhere. I've tossed it in the pool bag for summer but it really isn't a favorite for the smudge reason. Though, I have to say - I love the price point! My favorite mascara is still The Balm Mad Lash that I received in my first Ipsy bag. It's about 3x this price point but since the sample tube has lasted me about 6 months, I'm thinking it will be worth the investment!

Promise Organic Coconut Daily Face Wash



This was a favorite! I love how refreshed and clean my face felt after using this product, it didn't feel dry at all which is an issue with my face. I have tucked the rest of this sample away in my doula bag so I can treat myself to an amazing face wash when I'm at long births. When it runs out, I will likely purchase another! 

NYX Cosmetics Butter Lipstick in Ripe Berry




This was another favorite! The lipstick goes on so smooth and stays put! It's not super glossy but not as flat and matte as some others I've tried. I think the price point is also great on this one! 

Trust Fund Beauty Nail Polish



When I saw the picture for what I was getting in my Feb Glam Bag (I always check the spoilers) I was so excited to be getting the fun color. When it arrived though it was a different color (I didn't read the 'OR' in the description). I thought I was getting "I give good tweet" but actually got "$12 Latte" I do really like the polish. It goes on so nice and smooth. When I did the first coat I thought it was going to be too sheer but a second coat made for great coverage and I didn't really have trouble with it chipping! The $12 Latte color is a deep brown but it looks black unless you're in bright direct sun light. I'm just not really a dark nail polish girl, but I'll hang on to it and try again this fall/winter.

It costs a bit more than what I would normally spend on nail polish, but it works well, so I'd probably splurge for a color I love. 

Organic Pharmacy Lip & Eye Cream





I feel very meh about this one. I'm not much of a lip or eye cream gal. It has a kind of blah taste to it so I'm not really likely to use it on my lips and I don't have an evening makeup/facial routine - I just fall into bed so I'm not sure when I'd use the eye cream. 

Overall, I think this was one of my better glam bags, especially in regards to price of products.

A Day in My Life: Birth Day Edition

I absolutely love reading other blog's Day in the Life posts so I thought I'd do one myself! I'll probably do a couple more in the coming months to document what my life is like when I'm not working and maybe the flip side of what it's like when I'm preparing to go to a birth (or better yet, don't know that I'll be going to a birth & am called out unexpectedly totally changing my days plans!). As a birth doula and Midwife Assistant my days rarely have an exact routine. I have a goal of a schedule and I do my best to stick to it, but some days, like this one, I'm just happy we're all surviving!


I started documenting at 2:30 am. I was at a birth and had been for a while. This is when I didn't really want coffee but needed some caffeine. I stole a coke out of the refrigerator at the birth center (don't worry I replaced it!). Then back to work (sorry not much can be shared about work due to privacy protection of the patient).


At 3:00 saying hello to the camera as I cleaned instruments.


It's easy to stay awake when you're absolutely exhausted if you're up and moving around. There's lots to do in cleaning a birth center after birth but people were sleeping and I couldn't do much without making too much noise so back to the caffeine habit that I'll never be able to kick! (3:35 am)


my very favorite coffee mug at the birth center!

Fast forward I'm getting to clean the room and flip it. We always have the room totally cleaned and put back together so that we can have another birth come in at any time. 
It's 7:05 & I'm shifting the laundry from washer to dryer and beginning another load. (It was a long day before at the birth center & though I didn't do them all, I think in that 24 hour period we did along the lines of 15 loads of laundry!!)


As I shift laundry I call John, he needed to leave for work 30 minutes before this, but he fortunately had planned on going in late because he had plans that evening and needed to get off later to avoid random down time (not enough time to drive home from Dallas before going to Fort Worth).
The girls are awake at home and he's feeding them breakfast.

I didn't take many pictures though lots was happening - I got the birth room flipped quickly because I had done so much little (quiet) stuff earlier. I knew that the office staff would be in soon so I left a load of wet laundry in the dryer for them to start when they came in and a load running in the washing machine that someone would flip for me later.  

I took out the trash and locked the birth center up, ran (literally, on foot) next door to Walgreens to buy a coke to replace the one I drank & grab lunchables for the girls for Bible Study that day, I knew there was no way I had time to pack them lunches when I got home. Ran back to the birth center, put the coke in the fridge, relocked the birth center (staff must be stuck in traffic because they would usually be in by now) and headed out, I pulled out of the birth center parking lot at 7:30 am...


... realized I needed gas (UGH!) so took the long way out of town to stop off at the gas station (yes our van uses E-85, I didn't accidentally put the wrong kind in the Mommy-Mobile) (7:40 am)

At 7:59 John texted me to ask if I was lost (Insert some serious side eye here) I replied (using voice to text, not actually texting and driving) that no, he left the van with too little gas and I was dealing with that. I was 5 miles from home at that point. 

I arrived home, kissed John goodbye as he headed out the door and kissed the girls hello. I decided on the drive home that I was going to go ahead with the casserole I needed to make for Bible Study that morning because the idea of getting off the interstate, stopping, getting both girls out of the van, going inside after donuts, loading them again and back on the interstate was more trouble than throwing something in the oven to bake while I showered. 

Turns out that John had used some of the hashbrowns and eggs for the girls breakfast that morning. So, I improvised the too few ingredients into some version of a casserole and chunked it in the oven, ran through the shower and dressed (in yesterdays clothes right out of my on-call bag where I put them when I switched to scrubs). I finished dressing the girls and grabbed up their church diaper bags, took the casserole out of the oven (discovering that it hadn't been set level in the oven so it was quite deep on one end and quite shallow on the other... oh well!)


My very hot casserole in all it's leaning glory on our way to church! It's 9:02 & I was supposed to be at church at 9:00. We arrived at 9:35 and I ran the casserole in before dropping the girls off. 

Drop off was a blast, I was tired (duh) and therefore an air-head. I gave Ada's teacher her bag and talked to her about a lost lunch box and then walked off without giving her Ada. I realized after dropping Cora off in her room and went back to hand the child over. I spoke to one of the childcare teachers, Ms. Lauren, who is also my boss at the birth center about how things went the night before. I had been relieving her after she had worked a long hard, shift so it hadn't even been a birth I was on call for. Ran back out to the van (the church is quite large, so rather than walking from one building to another it's easier to drive - besides I had already hit my steps for the day!) and discovered that I didn't have my cell phone - quite the problem for an on-call birth worker. Went back in and found it in Cora's diaper bag.



I finally made it over to Bible Study at 9:57 - just in time to hear the last half of this week's speaker and to grab the last piece of my casserole!

Big group dismisses and we go to small group, which I managed to stay awake through! We have a freecycle table at our Bible study and everyone brings things they don't need anymore and we pick what we want and whatever is left is donated to various ministries sponsored through our church. I've gotten some amazing things at freecycle and take a lot of my stuff that we've out grown or are finished with up there. Today's find was this keurig! I was so excited, our coffee pot kicked the bucket a couple of months ago but buying a new one just hasn't been a priority.


I got home and made myself a cup of coffee in my new-to-me coffee pot and put the girls down for a nap, and I took a nap with them!

(excuse the giant pile of junk on my sewing table in the background)




Every birth worker has a different self care routine and way of handling our sleep-less and unpredictable lifestyle. I have found that after births, no matter how long they are it is best for me and my family if I just jump right back into our normal schedule as best as I can (assuming it doesn't look like I'm going to be called right back out). I try not to cancel things (though that does sometimes happen, especially if I'm too tired to safely drive) and I don't ever just go to sleep. It messes up my sleep patterns and I miss even more life with my family. My rule of thumb is to never nap longer than 3 hours and I prefer to only do 1.5 hours most of the time. This was a 3 hour nap kind of day! My girls don't normally nap that long, but if I am laying down with them they will. We all slept from 2 until 5!!



Lots of cuddles and hugs after waking up. We really didn't do much at all. They played with some blocks on my bedroom/office floor while I caught up on the insane number of calls/emails/texts I got during that nap.

When dinner time rolled around I was remembering that John wasn't coming home until after bed time, he was going with a friend to see Texas Tech play at TCU. There was no way I felt up to figuring something out for dinner so Tacos it was.



Then during dinner Ada somehow kicked my phone off the table and broke the screen. Fabulous.


On days like this I absolutely bribe my children when need be. They weren't interested in getting in the car, until I showed them M&M's (clearance after christmas & have been hanging out in the freezer at home)

Since we had driven into town I figured I would take the girls by my Dad's house. Since we had napped so late, I wanted the girls to stay up a little past their bed time or trying to put them down would be miserable.  We left his house to go back home at 9:10 pm


The girls fell asleep quickly. I laid in bed with them and worked on my doula business for a while. I had Rizzoli & Isles playing in the background, it's my current show to bing watch but Hulu makes me crazy with it's cruddy connections.


(Ada still sleeps in the fetal position, which I did until I was almost a teenager. I bet she would love it if I still swaddled her! She's also very opposed to pajamas, or pants... and shoes. She would love to run naked!)


After not very long I was good and exhausted. I texted John at 10:30 to see when he would be home then I went to sleep. I vaguely recall him waking me up to tell me he was home.

And that was a day in my life when I've attended an over night birth!

A couple of weeks ago I blogged about how I don't do it all - I accomplished a lot this day, but I didn't do any cleaning, no laundry, I barely picked up the toys that the kids drug out. We didn't do any homeschool lessons or crafts. I didn't do a quiet time. We survived and that was good enough for me! I'm still working on embracing the fact that I can't and won't do it all - and that's okay!

I'm really hoping to document a "normal" day at home with the girls soon!
