... It’s a boy! 💙👶 . . As you guys know at the end of December I announced that Steven and I are expecting a little bundle of joy in June. Over the holidays we did our gender reveal with our families and shared the news with our friends and here on my stories. It didn’t feel right to just start posting without sharing the news again incase you guys were busy (idk celebrating the holidays) and missed the original announcement. So here is to Baby O’Brien June 2020! 🎉 . . #genderreveal #babyboy #momtobe2020 #newmama #cakesofinstagram #bakedwithlove #littleboysarethebest

🔥Coming in hot 🔥 Guys, my September @boxycharm was too good not to share! Seriously it is probably one of my favorite boxes I have received from my subscription. If you don’t already know, Alamar Cosmetics palette are some of my favorites. The formulas are like butter 🧈. They are so easy to blend and are crazy pigmented. Farmacy Beauty will forever hold the title of best makeup remover balm [in my eyes] so I’m super excited for this brightening cream. 🍒 Hank and Henry, Laura Gellar, and Billion Dollar are all brands that [so far] haven’t let me down so I can’t wait to dive into those products. September box includes: 💫 @farmacybeauty Cheer Up Brightening Eye Cream 💫@hankandhenrybeauty Satin Lipstick 💫@alamarcosmetics Spanglish Palette 💫 @billiondollarbrows Beauty Sponge 💫 @lauragellerbeauty Lash Boss Mascara If you want to learn more about BoxyCharm, check the link in my bio for a 3 month review or to get your own box. PS: not an ad. I just love my subscription and think you will too! 😘🙌🤍

Tell me if you can relate, if not keep scrolling, it’s cool. If you are friends or not friends with a guy name Steven do you automatically pronounce his name Ste-fennnnnn like Kristen from Laguna Beach? Or am I the only one who still does? 😂 My husband doesn’t think it’s cute anymore but it’s one of the reasons I married him so I could contuine to say his name like that. 🤣 jk jk but also not ☺️ . . . Speaking of the beach, is anyone else in need of a little getaway? I would probably take a trip to the islands or somewhere warm. I know we’re only like 19 days into fall but whose counting ☀️🏝 Anyways, yesterday I shared my favorite travel essentials to help make life easier on the blog which includes this @beis weekender bag. ✈️👜 but comment below and tell me what place(s) you are dying to visit! ♥️ ••• [link in bio for the post] 💻

To say I am obsessed with this wall makeover is an understatement. As you know, I’m all about the little details so I wanted to find a way to display our wedding invites in a chic and classic way. I found these frames at @homegoods for about $17 each. If you are as obsessed with your wedding invites as much as I am and are looking for a way to display them, this gallery style look is so beautiful! . .

Hey friends! Happy Friday! 👯‍♀️✨ Time to join the fun and attempt my first #reel 🙈 @grandecosmetics makes some of my absolute favorite lip products ever and their shades are seriously gorgeous. I needed to share this box I received in PR because these tones... they’re speaking to me 👄 I’ve previously tried the clear gloss and a few others and -shocker- I loved them. They are hydrating and have great pigment. I know you have heard me talk about their lip products in the past but aren’t these neutrals perfect 😍 just when I think I’ve found THE ONE they come out with more for me to love. Have you tried @grandecosmetics? Which shade is your fave? 🧐🤍 Ps: No, this is not an ad and yes this box was sent to me in PR but I wasn’t asked to talk about it. I just love their products and wanted to share with my IG fam. 🙌♥️ #grandecosmetics #bestlipgloss #lipgoals #grandeli#glossylip #plumplips #beautyunboxing #neonsigns

I was going to stay silent. Not because I don’t care but because this is my current reality... As a 9 month pregnant police wife, the stress of being a first time mom is nearly all I can handle right now. As I prepare my house and my baby’s nursery, every day I have pangs of fear about delivery, if I will be a good enough mother, and whether or not my husband will make it home safe from normal police conditions. Right now is not normal. The last few months have not been normal. Going to doctor appointments alone because of a pandemic. Worrying if my spouse would be able to even been in the same delivery room. Cancelling my baby shower instead to have a drive through one. Unemployment. Lockdown. These are not things any person should have to deal with let alone a pregnant lady. As of recently, the tragic death of George Floyd has put yet another increasingly stressful toll on life. I feel such sadness for his family and cannot begin to fathom what they are going through or how they are feeling. While I respect the peaceful black lives matter protestors, that is not what is happening in New York right now. Police are getting run over, their cars lit on fire, and having bricks and all sorts of things thrown at them while essentially having their hands tied behind their backs. Our Mayor and Governor are blaming them for not stopping the looters and publicly bashing them. These cops have now had their days off taken away (which can’t be good for mental and physical health) and have to work 12 hour shifts. I don’t know about you but I couldn’t do that on my best day. My husband is a police officer and I am a proud police wife. I will always stand with the blue line and can promise you that no one hates a bad cop more than the good cops and their families do. Each night, while my pregnancy insomnia kicks in, I lay awake in fear about my husband going and coming from work safely. Worrying about the violent people actively trying to hurt police because they wear a badge just like the bad cop. It is not a normal time. While I try to sympathize with what is happening, all I can think about is my husband coming home safe. *Please see my Facebook for the entire post*

Yes my dad wrote them but putting that aside they are great reads year round or for your fall collection. • • If you’re looking to ⏩ challenge yourself spiritually or are maybe are looking to take yourself to the next level, check out The Power Of Now’ • • If you’re looking for ⏩ more great reads, check the link to my Amazon page in my bio link Happy Fall Reading Babes ♥️🙌🍂 #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #bookrecommendations #amazonfinds #amazonbooks #fallreads #fallreading #shelfiedecor #shelfies #bookbabe

Let’s talk about the positives that came from Covid-19 😳😷 • • Hear me out, aside from my handsome little guy being born, I do think there was some good that came out of all this. • • For starters, I’ve seen more adults walking outside and kids playing than I have seen since the early 2000’s. I personally have saved over 7k simply from not eating out, attending events, not buying crap I don’t need, and not going places. 🤑 I started eating better [more home-cooked meals, anyone else?]. I watched shows like Tiger King and realized how valuable my time is and swore not to watch anything like it ever again. There is no more kissing babies and I was pleasantly surprised how incredible it was to have no visitors when baby boy arrived. It allowed us time as a family and time to figure out how to breastfeed and change a diaper without any distractions. Last, [and this is a huge one] people learned about appropriate distances for personal space. 😂🙅‍♀️ • • Am I right? Honestly, I know Covid is serious but trying to look at the positives here. Did you take anything good away from this situation?
