Back To It.


Hello! Long time no blog my friends & how I have missed you. I have taken some much needed time off with the birth of my first child. I am excited to announce & share with you my beautiful Audrey, born on June 11th 2015 (more about that to come)! I have taken "maternity leave" from the blog while adjusting to the life of being a new mom. Today as she turns 6 weeks old, I will be stepping back into the blogging world! I will not be back to the same capacity that I was prior but I will be back & slowly easing into it.

Being a stay-at-home mom, wife, & co-business owner of Scuttle Nerdery has already proven to be a challenge to get used to as I try to make all of the pieces fit together. So, as I introduce blogging back into the routine I know it will take some time to figure how it fits into our world. I say all of that to get to the point that I have missed you all & thank you for understanding as I took the past 2 months off from my regular posting to rest, recuperate & enjoy the first few weeks with my little nugget. I am excited to be back in the saddle & look forward to many more adventures together!

(p.s - This photo is from our newborn shoot! We got some absolutely beautiful photos & I will share more with you soon, so stay posted!)

Swing.

Hello lovelies! This green swing dress from Asos has been one of the best purchases I have ever made. It is just from their regular line, so it will be great post-baby bump, but until then its growing with me & the nugget I am carrying. Its light, comfortable & cheap. My only minor complaint is that it does wrinkle easily, so make sure you pull it out of the dryer IMMEDIATELY! (I have it in red too - see outfit here)



Lets have a real life moment: I know that my regular schedule of posting has been a bit slower than usual lately. Frankly growing a human is freaking exhausting. I am in the last few weeks of pregnancy & I am just pooped by about 4 every day. My husband & I run a web development company (this is us!) which takes up a lot of time, energy & brain power. Add growing a baby on top & I am pretty much brain dead in the evenings which is when my blogging work kicks in. So that is why the blog & social media accounts haven't been as happenin as usual. Just giving myself grace & allowing time to rest :)

Paperlust.

There are a few things in life that I am a huge sucker for: polka dots, the tasteful use of glitter, a good cappuccino, cute paper goods... just to name a couple. So I am beyond excited to share with you some fabulous paper goods that fit into that category! There is a gorgeous online shop called Paperlust Studio & it has some of the most adorable paper goods that I am head-over-heels for.

The shop is ran by Colette who is one of the sweetest ladies around. She designs all of the beautiful products in her shop & oversees the handmade creation of each (all while having twins!). The company started out by a frustration of not being able to find a pregnancy journal that she liked to chronicle the pregnancy of her kiddos. So being the true go-getter that she is, she just went out & made her own! Fast forward a bit & you have Paperlust Studio that now sells baby bump journals, regular journals & soon to launch planners, baby's first year journals & much more!

I am such a sucker for a great business that is ran by a strong, go-getter woman that creates beautiful & unique pieces! If you are too, you have got to check out the Paperlust Studio shop. I promise you will thank me!

Want a journal of your own? or to buy one for a friend (the baby bump journals are excellent gifts!)? Well Colette is so sweet & is giving all Scuttle readers 15% off!! Just use the code: SCUTTLE15 at checkout & get 15% off your whole order.

Below are some photos of the two journals I got from the shop. I got the Hello Mama baby bump journal & the Watercolor journal. (With the baby bump journals she gives you the option to pick journal, devotional or blank pages for your journal. I went with the devotional pages, so below will show what that style of journal would look like).

Whites.

Crisp white. Ahhh... so refreshing & so spring. I love some good white pieces in spring time. The fall & winter are full of black & grays, so when spring comes around a nice splash of white is so, so refreshing.

This button-down, flowy Free People top has been on the regular wardrobe rotation lately because its cute while still accommodating the growing bump of mine. My mission to not buy many maternity pieces is a success because of great wardrobe items like this guy! Its so comfy & will be perfect post-baby too. Thank you Free People! You have truly been a pregnant gals BFF.
