- Amazon sweater // I wear this basically everyday and already have 3 colors. So affordable and good price point for seasonal sweater.
- Bucket bag // I bought this for myself last year and anytime we are running errands or I have an appointment or back in the day when we’d go for dinner, this is one of my faves.
- Ugg fur sneakers // I can confidently say this is the best purchase of winter 2020 for me! I have the tan and black.
- Fanny pack/belt bag // YES fanny packs are back baby. This is great for walking around city, hiking, anything!

Mama’s to be:
- Belly butter + belly oil // mama’s to be NEED lots of belly oil and butter. It’s one of my favorite parts of being pregnant. I rub this all over my stomach and thighs before bed and it’s great for postpartum with breast-feeding too.
