Second Base Camis {review}

I have a few shirts that I really like but have found  them to be a little too low cut once I received them. These were shirts and dresses I had purchased online and weren’t as true to fit on me as I thought they would be so I haven’t worn them out at all that is until I discovered Second Base, a one of a kind camisole made for the upper body!

Second Base offers are variety of camisoles in many colors and appealing styles.  I was able to review the Meredith camisole in white. I fell completely head over heals for this camisole. It fits comfortably and eliminates any unwanted immodesty when wearing certain tops and dresses.

I’m currently pregnant and another pro is that I don’t have to worry about layering with purchasing maternity tank tops. This camisole is perfect for when you are pregnant or not, totally versatile!

I found my camisole to wash and dry fantastically, and just so you know they are also made in the USA! I am looking forward to getting another style and color or two sometime in the future!

This is a fashion must have to add to your own collection of clothes and accessories! You can order Second Base demi camis on their website for around $30.00 each.

Sunny Saturday – Fun at the Lake

We had lots of fun enjoying the sunshine at a local park today. We hiked for about 2 hours and 1/2 and really enjoyed just being outside and spending time together! I love nature it’s so much more enjoyable than a lot of other things and it’s free!


I am truly blessed by being able to live so close to many great places to spend time out with my family. I’m so glad to be to partake in beauty God has given us here on earth as well.

God writes the gospel not in the Bible alone, but on trees and flowers and clouds and stars.  ~Martin Luther

Belly 9 – Maternity tank top {review & giveaway}

We know that with our Belly 9 Maternity T-shirts, you’ll be showing your style for the whole 9 months.

Being pregnant a second time hasn’t been all that fun for me until just recently. I was feeling pretty yucky up to 16 weeks and now I am comfortably in my second trimester at 20 weeks and looking and feeling so much better.  I am now finally braving the outside world again whether it be heading to the park with my toddler, going to the store, or hanging with friends and all the while, I can’t ignore the cry from my middle section that it’s time for some stylish maternity wear.

A friend recently told me about Belly 9  and I’m glad she did!  Belly 9 offers some really cute maternity shirts, tanks and baby tees and hat sets all made in the USA. Shirts  feature fun designs perfect for the mom to be keeping score, for the mom that just had to know,  and more!

I was given the opportunity to review a tank top that reads ” Miracle Grow”. Very suitable as every little baby is such a miracle of life.  I found the Belly 9 tank top  soft, stretchy and very flattering offering full belly coverage with the extra length.  It’s very comfortable and so soft that I’ve found myself wanting to wear it all the time! This tank top I can totally see myself wearing clear until the end of my pregnancy and I can’t say that for a lot of the other maternity shirts that I have had considering my first pregnancy.

You can purchase Belly9 tank tops for $25.00 and with the autumn and winter season around the corner, long-sleeved tees for $36.00! These would make make great gifts for new moms to be  and those expecting!
