Thoughts for Thursday :: Loving Lately

Happy Thursday!  I just wanted to share a few products with you that I've been loving lately.  As you will see below, I get most of my recommendations from fellow bloggers, so I wanted to pass along what I've tried and love! 

Milani Baked Blush :: I've been using my Milani blush nonstop these days in the color Berry Amore.  To me it's a dupe for Mac's Stereo Rose baked blush. These are a fraction of the cost of Mac's blush, but very similar.  I find them at my local CVS.  The color payoff is awesome and stays on all day.  The packaging is great too with a mirror included at the bottom of the compact. These were recommended to me by Meg of Meg O. on the Go!  She has the best drug store dupes on her blog and YouTube Channel! 

Honest Organic Body Oil and Moroccanoil Dry Body Oil :: I've been loving body oils lately for my growing belly.  I picked up the Honest Co. oil at my local Target.  I love it because it not only feels great, but does not have a strong scent.  Cocoa body oils have been way too strong for me lately.  I also love the Moroccanoil body oil when I want more of a scent for the day.  This smells great and as recommended by Kristina of Pretty, Shiny, Sparkly pairs great with the Nest fragrance White Sandalwood. 

The Baby Chick Maternity Tees :: Local baby guru and friend Nina Bassett just launched a new site for moms called The Baby Chick.   She also owns Bassett Baby Planning in Houston for you local mommas.  Be sure to follow the awesome blog, but I've really been loving this "Shopping for Two" maternity shirt.  It's so soft and comfy that I've not only been wearing it around the house and running errands, but grabbed for it at our recent Houston Moms Blog event paired with skinny jeans and black wedges.  I've worn it so much that I think it's time for me to get another one - maybe the It's a Boy tee!

Getting Beach Bag ready :: {Bag by Sarahjanes Oilcloth, Inspiration by Shay of Mix & Match Family}
After reading Shay's post about her pool bag essentials I wanted to get mine ready too with updated sunscreen (all of mine was so old and way past expiration) and other essentials.  I'm all set and just ready for the weather to cooperate this weekend for Memorial Day - it's not looking hopeful :(

Peonies :: It's that {short} time of year again when peonies are in season and Instagram is taken over by images of these gorgeous flowers in everyone's homes.  Guilty as charged.  I wasn't thrilled with the dark purple color that was the only color I could find, however they ended up looking perfect in my house!  Trader Joe's for the win!

What are some things that you are loving lately? 


 I'm linking up today with Annie and Natalie today for Thoughts for Thursday.
