Gugu Guru + Giveaway

Attention all expecting mama's! Today I have an amazing company to share with you guys that will save you so much time when it comes to shopping for your new baby.

Who else gets overwhelmed researching and looking for items to add to your baby registry/shopping for anything you didn't get at your baby shower? I know I can't be the only one (; Gugu Guru is an online personalized baby registry that finds and delivers products customized to YOUR unique taste + lifestyle. Gugu Guru has a team of experts that will curate and help you pick the best products for your little one. Oh and did I mention it's FREE?

How is this done?

All you need to do is take a simple quiz that asks you basic questions about your lifestyle, taste, and products you need help finding. With over thousands of options on the web Gugu Guru will surely save you time by helping you narrow down shops based on your budget/preferences and even introduce you to shops you may have not discovered on your own. You can even add things to your registry that didn't come up in your personal recommendations.

Gugu Guru helped me discover two great shops that I hadn't heard about, Finn+Emma and NuRoo Baby!

Finn+Emma carries the cutest eco-friendly clothing, blankets, and toys for little ones. I absolutely love their unique designs and the clothing is extremely soft! I can't wait to dress baby #2 in this adorable little outfit this fall and I will definitely purchase a few more items to add to his wardrobe. I also can't wait to see our little babe lay and play on this adorable woodland play mat!

NuRoo Baby carries this amazing NuRoo Pocket Shirt that I'm very excited about! It's a baby wearing shirt that offers full coverage while giving mama and baby skin-to-skin time and doubles as a hands free carrier! I will definitely post a photo of Baby Harvard and I in this as soon as he makes his debut.

Bump Style with LulaRoe

Amelia Dress c/o LulaRoe by Alex Crosby || Forever 21 Navy Fedora || Salt Water Sandals || Fawn Design Diaper Bag

To get details on Fatima's outfit visit her blog HERE.

Oh how I miss this girl! I'm so excited she's coming to Utah next week and I will get to spend even more time with her. It's going to be nice having her in Utah since it's much cooler than Arizona and we can actually go outside and enjoy summer activities. 

One of the companies we teamed up with while I was in Arizona earlier this month is LulaRoe! I have styled this Amelia dress two times prior but have never styled a design and wild and fun as this one! I absolutely love the print and navy/green combo. Alex Crosby kindly sent us these dresses so if you're in the market for modest dresses (that also work with baby bumps) I would highly suggest going to Alex (;

Mama and Z Style: Cabana Life + Giveaway

Mama's wearing:
Monaco Blue Ruched Rashguard || Monaco Blue Bikini Bottom || Salt Water Sandals

Z's wearing:
Multi Stripe Rashguard Set || Salt Water Sandals

Happy "Bump" Day friends! Today I have an amazing swimwear company to share with you guys, Cabana Life. Cabana Life specializes in stylish 50+ UV protection swimwear! I spent a little too much time in tanning beds and outdoors without sunscreen in my teens and I'm definitely more cautious and always lathering on the sunscreen before Z and I do anything outdoors. I absolutely love our Cabana Life swimwear and that it adds a little extra coverage and protection from the sun.

The Ruched Rashguard that I'm styling can be worn down into a 'dress' style for a bit more coverage! I chose to not style it this way so I could show off my bump but it's nice to have that little bit of extra room for later on in my pregnancy! I would highly recommend this rashguard style to any expecting mamas out there. The Bikini Bottoms offer just the right amount of coverage and I love the fun prints and designs Cabana Life offers! If you're expecting and will be wearing this swimsuit in your late second-third trimester I would suggest sizing up for extra bump room (;

Zaden's Rashguard Set is absolutely adorable and I love the bright colors and stripe design on his swim trunks. He definitely stands out at the pool which makes it easier to keep an eye on him at all times when he chooses to wander off.

I have teamed up with Cabana Life to giveaway a $100 gift card to one lucky Dearest Lou reader!
