I don’t know what it is about this 20 week mark but I swear this little nugget is twice the size as he/she was last week! Aw!! We also had our anatomy scan last week and it went really well. We are so happy that our little one is healthy and cannot wait to find out the gender at birthing time :)

This linen maxi from Pink Blush Maternity is perfect for the bump and very comfy. It’s this light linen material, which is great for hotter summer nights. Pink Blush is a great online shop for affordable clothing during pregnancy!

Linen Dress from Anthropologie at 20 weeks-3

Last week I was able to attend The Fount Workshop for motherhood photographers. It cost a pretty penny to attend but I really enjoyed my experience there and I feel like I walked away with so much. Not only did I learn more about photography as an art form, but also more about myself as a person – and what it is I want my business to represent. Rylee Hitchner was one of the presenters and she is just one of the kindest, most down to earth people I have ever met. It is because of her that I will be reflecting on myself and my business pretty heavily in the next coming months and years to come. I have debated completely rebranding my blog and even my photography business because I feel that the name of my blog and photography business do not coincide with my aesthetic. I will most likely change my LLC name and rebrand everything once I am able to save enough money to do it. Until then, I will dream up big things for myself ;)

This dress from Anthropologie is so incredibly gorgeous in person. I knew it would be great with my baby bump and i just love a piece of clothing that is versatile enough to wear during and after pregnancy. Oh, and I know you have seen this Isharya necklace on my neck daily for the past week, but that just shows you how much I truly adore it.

Best Kid Shops Featuring Tippitoetailor & The Lullaby Room

Tippitoetailor Etsy Shop Feature-6

It’s been quite awhile since we featured our favorite kid shops and today we are telling you about two of them! As I have mentioned before, I really love buying from small shops and supporting their business. The quality of these products is so amazing and there is nothing better than being able to meet the creator behind them. Today we are featuring tippitoetailor, a cute little handmade doll shop over on Etsy and The Lullaby Room, owned by Haley who hand makes beautiful quilts.

Quilt

If we are able to move before our second baby arrives, I would love to be able to get the nursery started and include quite a bit of black and white. We aren’t finding out the gender and I figure that we can always add in some gender related color afterwards. I love that this quilt from The Lullaby Room will be the first piece I add to our little ones’ nursery. It is handmade with such care and I love that it has patterns on both sides. I also love this quilt & matching pillow for a little girl’s room!

I was able to interview Kate from tippitoetailor and find out a little bit about her business :)

Tell us a little bit about yourself :)
1. I’m Kate. I’m the mum to two gorgeous girls and step-mum to a handsome boy. My husband, kids and I live in Toronto where I work during the day for a medical device company. I sew evenings and weekends whenever I can.

How long have you been in business?
2. I started my etsy shop in January of this year.

What sparked your idea for this business venture?
3. Sewing is really my absolute favorite thing to do, and buying beautiful fabric is probably my second favorite. I thought if I could start selling a few of my creations I could finance my love of making. It also gives me the creative outlet I really need in my life.

What do you hope to achieve for your customers?
4. I’m hoping to provide one of a kind toys for both kids and their parents to enjoy. My dolls are sturdy enough for play, but also make great decor pieces for a little ones room or play space.

Can I custom make a doll? How long does it usually take?
5. I make a lot of custom dolls. I love working with people to create something that’s especially meaningful for them. I’ve had a few mums send me newborn clothing items and we’ve worked them into an heirloom doll as a way to preserve and display those precious things. Depending on how long my list is I can usually get a custom doll make in 3-4 weeks although if theres a rush I’ll do what I can to speed things up!

These dolls are just so darn cute and they come with a removable tutu skirt, which Olivia loves putting on and off. Kate also has other little clothing items that you can buy to dress up your doll. The best thing about these is that they are totally customizable!
