Ollie’s Baptism Part 1

Hello Love Bugs,

I took the fabric from my wedding dress and made it into her baptism dress. Let’s face it – she isn’t going to wear my dress. Who knows what the style will be or if she will fit in it. This however she can use even on her own babies. I did not come up with this idea to clarify I read it on facebook haha. LUCKILY! I have to take a minute to thank Zena (Sorry if I misspelled your name) from Zeeg Baby for making Ollie the dress of my dreams! It is so beautiful and well made I can not praise her enough. She was also very professional and worked quickly.

From this!
To This:
Dress: Zeegbaby Cross: Gift from her Nunni Rosary: Gift from her Nunna
Her Nunni holding her during her baptism – I love how she looks at him! She already loves him so much.
Her Nunna – She also adores her Nunna so much.
As you can tell she was so over taking pictures!
Close up of her gifts from her Godparents minus her diamond earrings from Nunna because she’s wearing them.

Hope you enjoyed some pictures of Olive and her fabulous dress! Part 2 will be of our small family gathering and Ollie’s party dress.


Friday Faves: Travel Bag/Diaper Bag

Hello Love Bugs,

Coat: Target Bag: Gaston Luga Boots: Old & I can’t find similar Glasses: Old simliar

Today I am here to do a Friday Fave! I must must talk about this amazing bag I received c/o Gaston Luga. They reached out to me and I was actually in need of a new bag. Little did I know this bag would be everything I needed. I do no think they thought I would mostly use it as a diaper bag when they asked but I do. I actually use it as a regular bag as well. I love that it can go from my everyday bag to my diaper bag in a few seconds.

I wanted to wear it for a little before I spoke about it and a few days ago on my instagram stories I went into details. I saved it as a highlight. What I really love about this bag is the ease and how much it fits. On my recent trip to New York with my baby I as able to fit all her things and some of mine. Some of her items included diapers, 2 or 3 changes of clothing, grip water, bottle, hand sanitizer, wipes, boogie wipes, dreft to go pen, FORMULA etc. -I’m a new mom I carry too much stuff I KNOW! So if I am telling you it holds a lot IT HOLDS A LOT! Another thing I loved was its ease of opening and accessibility of the things inside. I could open and grab everything while holding Ollie who is at the very squirmy stage.

It as snowing when I took these pictures that is why you see the dots on the bag.

Now for the fun part! I have a coupon code for you!! The people at Gaston Luga were kind enough to offer my love bugs 15% off! Just use the code Lifeisjustrosie at checkout.

Now I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!!

As Always,



I’m back!

Well Hello there!

Earrings: H&M similar Sweater: Forever 21 Old similar Jeggings: GAP

Long time no talk. Where have I been? Well lets give you the super speed version of it. . . I HAD A BABY! Her name is Olive Grace and she’s 8 months old today! So that means she was born June 20, 2018. She is a little thing always has been even though everyone swore I was having a 10 lb baby. NOPE THAT WAS JUST FAT! She was born 6 lbs 14 oz. Obviously she is bigger now but not by much haha! She little like her Mamma!

Romper : Bailey’s Blossoms Bow: Target similar also similar

It has taken me about 8 months to wrap my head around it I think. Hahaha I started this blog years ago and it was all about shoes and clothes. Now let’s face it I spend a lot of my time in leggings and t shirts, I even bought a pair of UGGs! I forgot how comfortable they are and when you are running out of the house pretty damn convenient. Any who I digress – I still dress human when I leave the house but my days mostly consist of taking care of this little Olive of mine. Now to discuss my blog, read below!

What I am hoping to bring to the blog?

Fashion & Fitness: I still do plan on doing styled shoots. Maybe Ideas for new moms with new mom bod! I also plan on bringing you along with my weight loss journey. DO NOT GET IT TWISTED though I will not be disclosing my weight until the end – I am not that girl. Hopefully I will lose weight though so I can say hey this is what I weighed, this is what I did to get to here, and this is what I wore during it.

The hair had to go up because BABIES LOVE TO PULL THINGS! OWWW!

DIY & Decor: I plan on showing more DIY. If you do not already know my husband and I are obsessed with redoing things in our house and I am forever changing my mind. My husband owns his own construction company AMIC Home Improvements (you can see how talented he is on his instagram linked here)so I take full advantage of his skill. I design he creates.

Mommyhood: Well I am a new mom I don’t know shit! What I do know I will share. What works for Ollie & I may not work for you but I will share it. I will share all about my little Olive what she likes and doesn’t like. What has worked and what was a waste of time and money FOR US.

I love her so much. She is such a trooper- she always lets me do these photo shoots and never cries. I didn’t think it was possible to love someone this much! Everyday I love her more and more!

Michigan: Spring is coming and I plan on going to a lot more places in this still very new to me state. Summer in Michigan is awesome there is so much to do or so I have heard. I was super pregnant and then brand new baby last summer so I was locked in my house for the most part. NOT THIS YEAR I WILL HAVE A 1 year old! Wow how fast time goes by hopefully by next winter I will be able to do winter things.

Now my Love Bugs I hope you still join me on this little adventure we call life! So stay tuned! Wondering what happened to all my other post? I HAVE NO IDEA! I am still working on that but OH WELL! This blog is still a work in progress but if I didn’t do this now I never will. If you want to see my everyday follow me on Instagram. I have been told I am pretty funny. Is there something you really want me to share first LET ME KNOW IN THE COMMENTS. As always Love you guys SO VERY MUCH!
