Right now I am in the beginning of my second trimester of pregnancy, so my Five Friday Favorites are dedicated to staying afloat during this pregnancy trimester.

andalou face mask

Andalou Face Mask Pods: I use these about once or twice a month when I feel I need an at-home “spa day.” They are good for my sensitive skin and I like the way my face feels after using them. Plus, they smell good! My favorites are the clarity and luminous ones. I also use this face mask brush to apply the mask.

Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery game: I don’t usually get too excited about game releases, but this one I was waiting for ever since they said it was in the works. I’ve read all the HP books and watched all the movies so I was ready for this game to make its debut. I love that the game incorporates HP knowledge with a new story line and allows me to pretend I am a student at Hogwarts with both familiar and new characters. (Go Ravenclaw!)


saltwater sandals

Saltwater Sandals: I wear these everywhere! They are water-proof, comfortable and go with everything. They are nicer than wearing flip-flops to work and are great for when we go to the beach or a water park. They’re the perfect San Diego sandal.

gap maternity jeans

Maternity clothes: I have started showing a lot earlier in this pregnancy than in my first two so I decided that it was time to bite the bullet and start wearing maternity pants for the sake of comfort. I love this pair of jeans from Gap Maternity because as a petite person the length comes out just right on me. They are super comfy and the elastic band at the waist is pretty forgiving while still helping me keep my pants up.


KIND bars: I love that these come in sweet and savory flavors and that they are easy to grab and stow in my purse for a quick snack. They contain whole grains and aren’t lacking in flavor. My favorites are the dark chocolate nut and caramel almond with sea salt. The peanut butter dark chocolate is good too. It helps get my sweet tooth craving satisfied without too much indulgence.
