New Baby Wishlist

Friday, May 6, 2016



Happy Friday everyone! I wanted to share a couple of things that I currently have on my 'New Baby Wishlist'. I donated a lot of my baby gear that I used with Aviana to someone who really needed it so there are a couple of new things that I am wanting to buy.

Oribit Baby Stroller- I used the Orbit Baby stroller with Avi and it was the easiest and most convenient carseat/stroller to operate. They came out with a new model and color, and I am hoping to get my hands on it. I also love that it can serve as a double stroller and you can add a sidekick board attachment to it. Avi would just love that!

Little Unicorn Bibs- This boutique has the cutest pieces! The print and fabrics on their bibs, blankets, etc are adorable! I already purchased the swaddle blankets and I am going to add a couple more items to my collection.

4moms Infant Tub- My favorite feature about this tub is that you can monitor the water temperature. I always had a hard time determining whether the water was too hot or cold when I gave Aviana baths. I actually already purchased this and I look forward to giving my little babe baths!

PacaPod- I discovered Pacapod on Instagram and I really like the design and color of this diaper bag. It's also pretty large which would be great for travel!

Fancy Free Finery Headband- This shop has the cutest little headbands! I am wanting to order matching ones for my girls.

Solly Baby Wrap- I never used a wrap with Aviana but I've seen mamas all over Instagram using them so I'm thinking of getting one for myself. They look more comfortable than a traditional baby carrier and Solly Baby seems the brand that most people recommend.

Halo Bassinest- How cool is this thing!?!? The swivel feature on this bassinet seems to be helpful when feeding the baby at night. It would also be nice to have my sweet girl at arms reach because of the adjustable height. This product is on the top of wishlist and seems to be a great safe sleep option!

Comotomo Bottles- These bottles were referred to me by a friend so I am going to give them a shot. Both the bottle and nipple are made of silicone which is designed to mimic mommy and give baby a "close-to" breastfeeding experience.

Please let me know if you have tried any of these baby products. I would love to hear your feedback and recommendations!

Spring Tunic + Boyfriend Jeans

Saturday, April 30, 2016

Tunic: Motherhood Maternity c/o | Jeans: Motherhood Maternity c/o | Shoes: Sam Edelman | Sunnies: BP (only $12!) | Bracelet: Henri Bendel

Today I am sharing a fun spring maternity look that is both chic and affordable. Maternity clothing can sometimes be boring and so expensive! Motherhood Maternity has cute clothing that is on trend and at great price points. I love the colors in this tunic. It just screams spring! These distressed boyfriend jeans have been my go-to denim during my pregnancy and are under $45!

These block heel sandals were such a great investment because they are comfortable and can be worn with anything! Also, these clear sunnies were a steal for only $12 (more $12 sunnies here)! Seriously, I just couldn't pass up $12 designer look-alike sunnies! I love a good find!

Hope you are enjoying your weekend!

Mother's Day Gift Ideas

Thursday, April 28, 2016

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9

Mother's Day is fast approaching (May 8th) and I have been browsing the internet for some possible gift ideas. My mother loves jewelry so I was thinking of getting her a nice pair of rose gold earrings and a statement ring. Also, since she loves rose gold, I thought these white and rose gold earphones from Sudio Sweden (receive 15% off with code SimplyMars) would also make for a great gift. They would be so cute paired with a pretty phone case!

I rounded some fabulous Mother's Day gift ideas for you that I hope will serve as a shopping shortcut. Have you already purchased your mother, grandma, or mother-in-law a gift yet? If so, I would love to hear what some of your ideas are!

Floral Shorts

Monday, April 25, 2016

Top: Target | Shorts: Motherhood Maternity c/o (similar) | Shoes: Marc Fisher (sold out, similar) | Handbag: Prada | Bracelets: Henri Bendel (cuff), Henri Bendel | Watch: Daniel Wellington c/o (use code SIMPLYMARS for 15% off)

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you enjoyed your weekend. I'm finally back from a seven day trip to Disney World and Clearwater Beach, FL. We had the most amazing time and I can't wait to share photos with you all.

Today I am sharing an outfit that is perfect for spring. I bought this v-neck tee from Target in almost every color. It is simple, soft, and cheap! And when I say cheap I don't mean in quality. The fabric is surprising really nice. Gotta love a good Target find! We have had some pretty hot days here in Texas lately so I wanted to find a pair of cute shorts and I came across these floral ones from Motherhood Maternity. They are only $30 which is pretty inexpensive for maternity clothing.

I have been wearing this Daniel Wellington watch nonstop. As you probably already know, I love rose gold hardware! The straps to this watch are also interchangeable and the brown leather strap is currently on my wish list. I love how simple and classic these beautiful timepieces are!

Daniel Wellington is kindly offering all Simply Mars readers 15% off with code SIMPLYMARS.
