maternity favorites


here are my maternity favorites, updated as I’ve gone along.

for the boobies

pregnancy boob tube bust protection cream by Mama Mio

I am obsessed with this stuff. it has seriously transformed my décolletage. my neck and breast area looks visibly firmer and the skin is softer. you feel instantly better after putting it on. after pregnancy, I’m going to continue to use this cream – I wish I had known about it sooner!

for the belly

the tummy rub butter by Mama Mio

I swear when I put this on, it keeps my belly skin hydrated all day long. Lu even said to me once, “your belly looks fake!” because it was so well hydrated, it’s almost shiny! it feels amazing going on, is so creamy, and is not sticky at all. worth every penny!

belly oil by Zoe Organics

I used this towards the end of my pregnancy, once my belly was getting really big and the skin felt tighter. I used the above tummy rub butter in the evening and the oil in the morning or vice versa – I’d just switch it up!

prenatal vitamin

garden of life prenatal multivitamin

the moment I found out I was pregnant, I bought these on Amazon and bought the above tummy butter. it’s vegetarian, which was really important to me – but it’s not a one-a-day, you have to take 1 pill 3 times a day.

favorite maternity jeans

I haven’t dabbled too much just yet, but I’m obsessed with these jeans by Ingrid & Isabel with a crossover panel. they feel so, so, so supportive. and I love rolling up the bottoms and wearing with booties – and look forward to pairing them with wedges. warning: they do have thick seams up the belly, so if you’re wearing a tight-fitting shirt, the seams will show through. that’s the only negative of these jeans!

if you’re looking for something a little less heavy duty, I love these full panel maternity jeans from GAP – they don’t give your belly as much support, but they feel lighter weight and are a great option!

favorite everyday shirt

solid crew tee by GAP

I literally have bought this in every single color (well, not every, but most) – it is SO comfortable, so flattering (#sideruching), and light enough that you can wear it year-round.

favorite bras

I did not purchased a maternity bra until much later in my pregnancy (30+ weeks)! here are the bras I wore throughout my whole pregnancy:

my favorite sports bra by panache
my everyday bra by wacoal
nursing bra by motherhood maternity
nursing bra by bravado designs (this one too!)

favorite workout leggings

active knee pant crossover panel by ingrid & isabel

I can’t even do these justice. just like ingrid & isabel’s denim, these leggings offer SO much support and are thick and supportive. I wear them around the house, running errands, and of course, to the gym. can’t recommend them more!

favorite pregnancy app

I’ve been using The Bump app!

favorite tank

nursing tank by boob

this nursing tank is the BEST. I wear it as a black tank top with jeans or shorts and I wore it under sweaters or cardigans when temperatures were cooler. it’s going to be a lifesaver when nursing time comes around. it’s nice and LONG so if you have a longer torso or, like me, a bigger bust, it doesn’t ride up over the bump. it kinda sucks you in too, it’s super flattering!

favorite nursing pillow

the snoogle with this cover

OMG. I’m obsessed with this pillow and it was the only way I could sleep comfortably, starting in the middle of my second trimester up until the very end. WARNING: your husband/partner may steal it from you!

cleaned the grill today, which inspired me to grill for dinner, so I kept it simple with grilled potatoes, broccoli and chicken sausage. 🥦🥔 I also made some BBQ tempeh for myself, which was nice and hearty and I am excited to make it more this summer 🌽👏🏼 basically, I steamed it for 10 minutes and then slathered it in barbecue sauce and threw it on the grill for 10-15 minutes. super easy and delish! 🙏🏼

what’s everyone having for dinner tonight?! 👇🏼 #whatsfordinner #vegandinnerideas #vegandinners

MEXICAN STREET CORN SALAD 🌽, made with a creamy avocado lime sauce instead of mayo, for a lighter, “less-dairy” version of a street corn salad! so flavorful, addictively tasty, and works well as a vegetarian main dish or can be a side dish served with your favorite protein 👏🏼 grab the recipe on the blog now!! hope everyone had great weekends, see you monday!

it's friyyyyyyaayyyy and that means cheese & cracker plates, right? 🍷 my Pistachio & Cranberry Vegan Cheese Ball 🌱 is perfect for any occasion (yes, friday is an occasion!), a throwback recipe from my Inspiralized & Beyond cookbook! if you have the book, flip to page 88 and make this - definitely no cheese coma and you'll be amazed how cheese-like it tastes (kind of like a spreadable ricotta with tons of herby goodness!) 👏🏼⁣

what's everyone's weekend plans? I'll be in NYC for the second part of the photoshoot for my collaborative cookbook with @feedinglittles! 👯‍♀️⁣
