[Velvet-Rose.net] – “Rent Your Maternity Clothing with Bella Gravida” plus 1 more

Velvet-Rose.net /////////////////////////////////////////// Rent Your Maternity Clothing with Bella Gravida Posted: 26 Sep 2015 04:53 AM PDT http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/velvet-rose/TtIq/~3/qaRFXrLWD-g/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email I participated in a Blog Blast Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Bella Gravida. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation. Pregnancy changes our bodies in so many ways, not just physically with the rounding of our bellies, but also our self-image changes and our comfort levels with clothing items change too. I remember trying to have my regular clothes last longer by using belly bands and wearing camisoles under unbuttoned shirts. That worked at first, but quickly got to be a problem. So I started buying bigger items and eventually bought full-fledged maternity clothing. It felt like every month or so I had to find something different that still felt comfortable with my constantly changing body. But now that Im no longer pregnant, all those clothes are sitting in a box in the closet. I just heard about the Bella Gravida launch, and Im wondering, where was this when I was pregnant? Bella Gravida means Beautifully Pregnant in Italian. What a lovely sentiment. What are they? Well, Bella Gravida is a maternity clothing rental line. Thats right, why buy maternity clothing when you can rent it, and try something new each month? Their research shows that 96% of pregnant or recently pregnant women found maternity clothing to be too expensive, low quality, or lacking variety. With all of the changes associated with pregnancy, dont we still want the ability to feel beautiful and stylish in our clothing? Ive heard of other monthly subscription services both for food and fashion, so why not maternity clothing? Bella Gravida provides a revolving closet of lovely outfits for a flat monthly fee with free shipping (and unlimited exchanges with no return deadline). Also, since laundry is everyones favorite chore /sarcasm, this subscription includes laundry service! Bella Gravida monthly plans start as low as $39, so it is a fun and affordable new way to enjoy being pregnant and wear the latest clothing from fabulous designers (even clothing by Kate Middleton’s maternity wear designer). This service includes styles in the categories of Classic, Modern Trendy, Romantic, Bohemian, Dramatic, and Southern Chic. I took their personal style quiz, and turns out I am Southern Chic. I think Im a mix of that and Classic though. I picked a few outfits that I can totally see myself wearing, what do you think? The Bella Gravida website just launched a few days ago, so give them a visit and see how their lovely service can fit into your pregnancy lifestyle. They can also be found on Facebook and Twitter.

She has an 18 month old and is expecting another, and weve spent a few evenings going for walks around the neighborhood. This has gotten me back into moving more and it has been great. Also, Baby H is a fan of being taken for a stroll. I went to a 1st birthday party for one of the Moms in our hospitals breastfeeding support group. This was the first time we had gotten our babies together, so that was nice. Though Baby H isnt one yet, hes bigger than the birthday boy and was a bit of a bully about taking all his toys from him (and even paci -right out of his mouth!). So we need to practice our manners, and we do that by being exposed to other babies. I hosted book club this past weekend as well, and it was my first time hosting post-baby. I figured it might be easier having him at home and he could play while we chatted, but he was quite a bit clingy. We had a great time though, as we always do. Our potluck was dessert heavy this time so we definitely had some sugar in our system and laughed a lot. Another baby was there as well, and a bigger kid. We even had a book club babies photo taken of the older kiddo holding both babies. We took our Nanny out to dinner this weekend as well since it is Nanny Appreciation Week. Were definitely happy we have her. I received quite a few products for review recently so Im enjoying trying them out. My Goals for the upcoming week: Work out at least 3 days/week. Walking has been helping with this. Drink more water, aim for 100 oz/day. This one is hit or miss. Need to continue planning Baby Hs first birthday and get the Evite going. Baby-proofing. My goal is to get everything installed before his birthday party. A blogging goal is to catch up on reviews and project posts. I have quite a few ideas for future posts, but havent had the time to implement them. What are you thankful for this week? What are your goals for the week ahead? Share your posts with us! Welcome to the Weekly Gratitude and Goals Linky Party hosted by Julie at Velvet Rose and Suzanna at One Hoolie Mama! The idea behind this party is to take a step back and reflect on those things, both large and small, that we are thankful for in our lives this past week as well as think about what goals we may have for ourselves for the upcoming week. So share a list of everything and anything you are thankful for and add any goals you have for the week ahead. This party will start on Fridays, but you are welcome to link up any time during the week.
