All of these hair products are in my shower or on my bathroom sink. I use these products almost every day. The most dramatic difference you are going to have with your hairstyles is buying extensions and I talk about them below. I get way more compliments on my hair when my extensions are in. It not only adds length but it adds a ton of volume. Let me know if you have any questions about anything and I will be glad to answer! Latest blog post here

Enjoy!

My Favorite Hair Products:

Shampoo 

paulmitchellblondeshampooI use Paul Mitchell Blonde 

This shampoo is purple and it helps your hair stay a beautiful blonde color.

If you are blonde you know it can turn this ugly brassy color. This prevents your hair from doing that.

Shop this shampoo here

Conditioner 

vibrantsexyhairsulfatefree

This conditioner is great if you color your hair.

Sulfate will strip your color and this keeps your color lasting longer.

Shop this conditioner here

 

Dry Shampoo

This is my favorite Dry Shampoo because of the price.

I only wash my hair about once a week.

I use this every day in between washes.

Shop this dry shampoo here

Texture Spray

notyourmotherstexturespray

I use texture spray to help my curls stay in and it really does work.

If you have thin hair like me and you need extra body you have to get some texture spray.

Spray in your hair when wet.

Shop this texture spray here

Curling Iron

hottools3/4inchcurlingiron

I use a 3/4 inch Hot Tools Curling Iron.

I only curl small pieces of hair. Maybe 1-inch pieces

Shop this curling iron here

Frizz Control 

johnfrieda

Dry Shampoo can cause your hair to be frizzy.

Also the winter can really dry your hair out with the heating inside the house.

I use this product when my hair is wet or dry.

Just apply a small amount in the palms and rub it all over your hair to calm down your frizz. Try not to touch your roots.

Shop this Frizz Ease here

Extensions 

longblondehair

I use 2 different types of extensions. I use Halo extensions (halo is one big piece attached to a fishing wire) and Clip in extensions (they have 9 weft pieces that you clip in all over your head).

There are pros and cons to both but right now I have been loving halo extensions because they only take a second to put in and out, they are more comfortable for everyday wear, they are very easily hidden, and they blend a lot easier.

The cons with a halo are that you can only do a couple hairstyles (mainly for wearing your hair down) and sometimes the fishing wire will rub on your head and makes your hair do this weird loop thing. So you have to watch it sometimes.  I am wearing halo extensions in this picture and  Shop these exact extensions here.

Hair Brush

wethairbrushrevew

This is seriously the best hair brush I have ever used.

I love it because it doesn’t hurt your head when you are trying to get out all of the tangles.

This is a great brush to use every day and for when you do a blow out with your hairdryer.

Shop this hairbrush here

 

Hair Spray 

bigsexyhairhairspray

This is by far my favorite Hairspray because it holds my curl so well.

Not only does it hold your style but it also adds a ton of volume.

Shop Magenta Off the Shoulder Chiffon Top here

Hey Guys,

I teamed up with Pink Blush Maternity to show you three different styles and how I styled them.

Style 1- I am wearing this floral off the shoulder top to my baby shower next weekend. This dress is so soft and stretchy. You could wear it for a special occasion or just around the house. It is seriously made of the best material. I love the floral print. Floral print just reminds me of my sweet Annslee Kate because I want to decorate her room in all floral.

Style 2- This white maxi dress runs small in the bust area. I definitely had size up quite a bit and I am so glad I got a Large. If you are pregnant and your bust hasn’t gotten too large then you could probably get by with your normal size.

Style 3- This Magenta top is a show stopper for sure. I love how flowy it is and the color is so pretty. I added an extra pop of color with the yellow just to be a daredevil but you could totally style this with some cheetah print heels as well.

I hope yall have a great Thursday (Friday Junior)

Grey Over the Knee Boots and Pink Cardigan Outfit.

Green Hills Mall

Last Saturday we shopped at Green Hills Mall in Nashville, TN. This mall brings back so many memories when my mom would take me to the doctor which was across the street from this mall. Every time the doctor would give me a shot she would take me to limited too to buy an outfit. I had a crazy love for fashion and limited too even was a little girl. If you are ever visiting Nashville this mall is pretty awesome. It is definitely high fashion but it is always fun to go into Chanel and look at everything.

This outfit is so comfy and perfect if you are pregnant because you can buy non-maternity. I got a ton of compliments on these boots and I just love how affordable they are. The boots are a little snug so I put some thick socks on, put my boots on over the socks, and used a hair dryer on all of the tight spots. That trick works like a charm. I think they are snug on me because I am so pregnant. lol

29 weeks pregnant update- I am getting so big. My acid reflux is almost at the unbearable point and it was not this bad with Grayson. I cannot sleep very well through the night. I am facing a ton of anxiety. 10 times more the usual. I am hoping nothing is really wrong with me and it’s just the pregnancy. I still have no cravings at all. Isn’t that weird?? Chris rubs my belly and feels her kick more than ever now. It makes me super happy when he does that.

Thanks for following along with me and you if have any questions about anything shoot me an email at kellyannmomblog@gmail.com. I will respond super quick. I also do photography shoots on the side if you are in the Nashville area. By the way, I mean any questions… outfit details, make up details, hair details, pregnant questions.

I am working on a what is in my hospital bag post and I am super excited about that collaboration. It is almost time for the hospital. This is getting so exciting. I just can’t wait to snuggle her and soak in that new baby smell. If you are a momma you know what I am talking about.

Did you see what we were for Halloween? Halloween was so fun. To see blog post click here

I hope everyone has a great weekend,

Maternity Products Roundup and Sneak Peak of Baby Annslee!

maternity fashion maternity fashion

maternityphotoshoot maternityphotoshoot

maternity photography 3rdtrimester 3rdtrimestermaternity 3rdtrimester

Here is the 4D ultrasound of Annslee Kate! I think she looks like me! YAY! haha Who do y’all think she looks more like?

A. Too soon to tell.

B. Kelly

C. Chris

 

 

4D ultrasound 28 weeks pregnant

 

How am I feeling?

My heartburn is terrible. I am on a prescription heart burn medication that helps a little and I take TUMs on top of that. Heartburn is not fun. I wonder if she is going to have a lot of hair. Even though they say that is myth. But the nausea has gone away and that’s good! My milk came and that hasn’t been fun. I haven’t been able to fit in any of my bras. 🙁

Do my clothes fit?

Some of my clothes still fit if they are stretchy enough but maternity jeans are now a must. The hair tie around the button trick doesn’t work anymore like it used to.

Are you uncomfortable?

Bending down isn’t fun anymore so I already try to avoid that at all costs. I have a sharp pain on ONE freaking spot on my back. Sometimes I feel like it is really hard to breathe.

Cutest memory this month?

So Chris came in for my doctor’s appointment so he could see the first 4D ultrasound of Annslee Kate. She wouldn’t get her arm off her mouth so we could see her whole face. I told Chris to come try and move her because every time he rubs my belly she will move. So he came over and start rubbing my belly and she moved her arm. It was the craziest thing. Me and the ultra sound tech were cracking up. There is already a sweet connection with her and her daddy. I can’t wait to see the two of them together. He is going to love this little girl.

Nesting?

I have been cooking like crazy and organizing the house. I am totally and completely in the nesting stage.

Happy Saturday Everyone!

I am really into this pumps and distressed jeans look lately. I feel like it really dresses up the jeans and makes you look super classy. I told Chris I wanted to go buy some cheetah print heels. He said no like usual. haha. These yellow heels or so out of the box but I really LOVE them. Sometimes you need a little color in your life.

Pregnancy Update

I have been super anxious lately about having another baby and feeling like Grayson isn’t going to get enough attention. So much has happened in the past 3 years and it has always been Chris, Grayson, and me. Just the 3 of us. I have guilt that Grayson isn’t going to be the center of attention anymore. Do any other moms feel this way?

I think he is going to love and adore his sibling. I know he will be super excited just to have someone to play with all the time. The boy is exactly like me sometimes. He loves to be around people and he doesn’t like to be by himself. I love being around people, talking to people, and building relationships. My husband on the other hand is more reserved.

I have considered taking maternity leave a week before my due date and spending that entire week with Grayson. Just me and him. Some moms have been giving me tips and they say to give Grayson a gift from Annslee when she gets here. I think that idea is a great idea. If anyone else has any ideas/tips about having a second baby fill me in. The power of mommy groups helping each other is AMAZING. I am in a couple groups on Facebook and I love it.

Should Grayson stay at the hospital with us the majority of the time we are with the new baby? What did y’all do?

Should I pack a bag for Grayson when we go to the hospital so he has plenty of snacks and things to play with while I am in labor? I think this is a good idea!

Do you let your toddler hang out with you while you are in labor and then get grandma to take him out when you get ready to push?

I would love your feed back!

What you need to Recreate this DIY Scarecrow Costume:

  • Floppy Hat- Click here to shop at Walmart
  • Flannel Shirt
  • White Tank (If you are pregnant and your flannel shirt does not fit)
  • Dark Jeans
  • Brown Boots
  • Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner- click here to shop at walmart
  • Maybelline New York Superstay 24 Liquid Lipstick in Non stop Orange- click here to shop at walmart
  • Kiss False Eyelashes- click here

 

Hey Loves!

I teamed up with Walmart to show a costume look for around $25. I think this costume is great if you are on a budget or if you are thinking about doing something last minute. It’s also great for pregnant women because it’s hard to find a maternity costume. I think this look is so cute and the only thing I had to buy to recreate it was the hat, eyelashes, eyeliner, and orange smudge proof lipstick. The jeans, tank, top and boots were already in my closet. How awesome is that?

The makeup took about 10 minutes max and I made a tutorial on how to recreate the makeup for this scarecrow look. I did have foundation and concealer on my face before I made the tutorial. Don’t worry if the black lines around the mouth and nose are absolutely perfect. I think it looks cuter when they are a little messy.

A Fun Family Day at Huyck Farms.

 

Hey Everyone!!

We are settling into Paducah more and more each day. I love looking up local events on Facebook and finding fun stuff for Grayson to go to. This fun family event at Huyck Farms was not only fun but the venue was beautiful. It had a ton of picture ops if you can’t tell. We bought kettle corn, local honey (this is great for allergies by the way), fresh apples, and of course pumpkins. Fall is such a warm time of year. I love making awesome memories with the family.

My outfit is all maternity and it is from Everly Gray.  I love the pants because they are super stretchy and comfortable. My top has a side zipper for breast feeding,  which is perfect post baby. It will be great wearing this top in January when Annslee is due because it doesn’t hug around the tummy at all and I can hide my post baby bump.

Below is a video of this hairstyle that I did yesterday! One random girl at the pumpkin patch asked if she could take a picture of my hair because she loved it so much. I post a lot of videos of me getting ready on my Instagram story. Yesterday I did a hair tutorial and last week I did a makeup tutorial. People really seem to like them so just expect to see one on Saturday’s!

Everyone enjoy and if you have ANY questions about anything don’t forget to ASK 🙂

I love helping and answering questions!

I teamed up with Lily Jade Co to show you this amazing diaper bag. I made a list of reasons why I think it’s worth investing in this diaper bag. The price of is $340 but if you are looking for a diaper bag you are going to love, use, and even for your husband to use, then this bag for you. Also the shipping is FREE!

You can shop this Lily Jade Diaper Bag here

  1. Great quality leather and a great color. The color is also good for when Chris needs to go out with the baby. I got a black bag because I already have a big brown purse and I didn’t have a black one. They do have some great colors to choose from to fit your style.
  2. You can take this Lily Jade diaper bag insert out and use it as a purse. This is great to use once to the baby is a toddler. I could fit Grayson’s iPad, my wallet, and my camera all in this bag. I could fit my laptop for work as well. So I am carrying the bag before the baby is here.

    lilyjadediaperbaginsert
    Diaper Bag insert that you can take in and out.
  3. It turns into a backpack. THE BEST FEATURE OF ALL. I was literally jumping up to and down when I saw it turned into a backpack. The straps are adjustable so its fits your hubby too. So it also has the top straps, you can wear it as a backpack or a purse. So versatile.
  4. You can use the long strap for a backpack or a cross body. I cannot get over how many different ways you can wear this bag.
  5. It has 3 front pockets so you can throw your keys and phone in those so they don’t get lost in your bag. Why do I always loose everything in my purse. Does anyone else have this problem?
  6. There is a magnetic flap on top  so you can close your Lily Jade Diaper Bag in a hurry. This magnetic flap has a little zipper pocket if you wanted to throw a paci in there. It does have main zipper; however, if you need to close your bag real quick this flap prevents everything falling out of your diaper bag.
  7. It comes with a changing pad.
  8. This Lily Jade Diaper Bag is super easy to clean and wipe off.
  9. The only thing I don’t like about this bag is the price. I do think it’s pricey and I wish it was a little more affordable; however, it’s a great investment and you can use it as a purse as well.
  10. The bag has a 1 year warranty. Special conditions apply.

Let me know if you have any questions about this bag and I would be glad to answer them for you! Thanks for reading and following along with my post. I have some hair tutorials coming soon!

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Concentrated Recovery PowerFoil Mask Review

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair PowerFoil Mask Review
esteelauder esteelauderadadvancednightrepairconcentratedrecoverypowerfoilmask esteelauder esteelauder

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Concentrated Recovery Mask

Quick Review

  • Price:
    • $22 for one mask
    • A pack of 4 for $40 ($10 each)
    • Click here to shop this mask at Nordstrom.
  • Time:
    • You need to wear the mask for at least 10 minutes
    • Preferably at night time when all your makeup is off and before you go to bed.
  • Results:
    • This mask leaves your skin very soft to the touch and completely hydrated.
    • The foil heats up the product and you can feel a tingle.
    • I have red patches on my skin and they were gone the next day.
    • People noticed that my skin actually glowed.
  • Skin Type:
    • This mask in my personal opinion is great for dry or normal skin. I really do not think someone with oily skin would benefit as much.
    • This mask also helps with wrinkles. Think of your face as layers and it is important to hydrate and preserve your top layers. This is what this mask does.
  • Would I purchase this mask?
    • I would buy a pack of 4 of the these masks and wear them at least once a month.

 

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Concentrated Recovery PowerFoil Mask Detailed Review

So this beauty mask or as my husband calls it, iron man mask, looks a little ridiculous but boy does it work. When I first put on the mask it was so cold but after 3 minutes I could feel my skin heating up. The foil helps to penetrate the product into the skin so it can get past the first layers. You can actually feel a tingling feeling that is kinda weird at first. I put on the mask and then took an awesome bubble bath. When I took the mask off, I rubbed all the product into the skin. My skin felt so soft and hydrated and I had several dry patches around my nose and chin that were gone.

I would definitely pay for this mask at least once a month to help with wrinkles and to help give my face great hydration. This mask is a little pricey but it will give you a glow the next day. You can see noticeable results for spending $20. However, I would not want to spend more then $20 a month on this product.

I hope you enjoyed this honest review of the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Concentrated Recovery PowerFoil Mask (Say that 10 times fast haha). My husband thought it was hilarious and my 3 year old son Grayson told me he didn’t like it.
