Lily Jade Diaper Bag Review and Giveaway

lily jade review 1

We are 4 months out from welcoming our 3rd baby..4 months people! And the fact that I am going to be a mom to three still just seems so crazy. Bizarre even- because I feel like three is going to be a game changer. Jeremy and I will be officially outnumbered, but in the best way possible! There have been a lot of things that I have learned so far in my parenting journey. Some things I learned the easy way, and some things- the hard. One thing I know for sure is that I needed to get my act together in terms of diaper bags for this 3rd baby.

With Braylen I had a real diaper bag. It was really nice, cute, and stylish- but it didn’t hold up well at all. So much so, that when Winston came along I didn’t even use it. Instead I just used a big purse. I thought it was totally fine, except looking back- it was a terrible idea! I could never find stuff jammed all the way at the bottom. The purse would always get super nasty {hello, kid stuff tends to do that!} but I had no way of washing it. I never once had a true diaper bag with having two kids, so I knew that I wanted something amazing for this 3rd baby.

I started my search online for a diaper bag that met this criteria:

-stylish

-functional with lots of pockets and compartments

-at least the interior needed to be washable

-able to be worn multiple ways

-didn’t ‘scream’ diaper bag

-made really well so it would last

I found Lily Jades site and seriously fell in love! Each of their bags were so beautiful, and the organization of them was beyond amazing. I knew within two minutes of looking that it was what I was looking for. I fell in love especially with the Shaylee bag in Brandy. It had everything I wanted, and things I didn’t even know I wanted!

The inside has this organization compartment that is amazing. It keeps everything right in place, has a changing pad, and is totally removable {and washable}. And the unique part is that whenever you are done needing a full blown diaper bag, you can easily take out the organizer and use the bag as a beautiful purse!

One of my big requirements was that I could wear the bag multiple ways, and Shaylee does them all! I can wear this on my shoulder, across the body, and even as a backpack! I think the backpack aspect is going to come in handy the most while trying to wrangle three kids.

I really can’t say enough great things about Lily Jade. The quality is amazing, and I have read a million reviews from people who have had theirs for years and say they still look incredible!

22 Weeks Pregnant

22 weeks pregnant

How far along: 22 weeks pregnant! Due September 27th!

Total weight gain: Up 11 lbs.

Maternity clothes: Some. Pregnancy makes me realize just how many different fits I have in my pants. Some jeans need a hair-tie, and some i’ve given up on entirely;) But you see that dress right there- its basically going to be worn out by time this pregnancy is over because it is amazinggggg. I also had to do a photo differently this week because I messed something up on my camera.

Stretch marks: Nothing happening yet:) But I am using a combo of old and new tricks to keep them away. The Mama Mio oil I have used with the past two pregnancies has kept me almost completely stretch mark free, so i’m sticking with it. But I am also adding in a drop of Gentle Baby and Frankincense Young Living essential oils.

Sleep: Most days taking a 20 minute nap. And sleep at night has been amazing- especially since I got myself a Snoogle

Best moment of this week: Celebrating Brays ‘graduation’ from his first year of Preschool. He did so amazing in his performance and it was the cutest!

Miss anything: Beer

Movement: Every day now- and it is SUCH a blessing. She seriously moves around all the time, and I can’t get enough of it!

Food cravings: Frosted freaking flakes. I don’t know when I will get sick of it, but the craving is still strong.

Anything making you queasy or sick: nada!

Have you started to show yet: Without a doubt!

Gender: A sweet precious baby GIRL!

Labor signs: Definitely having Braxton Hicks, but nothing to worry about as of yet.

Belly button in or out: Its out, almost allll the way!

Wedding rings on or off: On!

Happy or moody most of the time: Happy but emotional this week.

Looking forward to: A 3 day weekend, even though Jeremy works.
