Beauty Advent Calendars

How I have been on this planet for 39 years and never known this was a thing is beyond me. I have to pass on the wine advent calendar this year (pregnant), so I am totally going to spoil myself with some much needed beauty products instead. Not that wine isn’t needed this year too, but, ya know… 🤰

My beauty routine is long overdue for a shake up, and I am very interested in trying out some bareMinerals products. That’s actually what led me down this beauty advent calendar rabbit hole, anyway. There are so many appealing options, it’s tough to decide! I also included a few holiday gift sets that caught my eye.

I may even gift a friend or two with one of these unique and festive finds. Who wouldn’t be thrilled to receive an advent calendar full of beauty goodies to kick off the holiday season? I may just have to order a few.

I love Zulily. I love how every day is a surprise and you never really know what you will find until you log in and do some digging. I have found some incredible deals on major brand names (think Maltida Jane) and scored plenty of no name brand treasures, as well.

Carter’s Doorbuster Christmas Jammies

Who doesn’t want to indulge in the holiday spirit a little early this season? I am ready to light the fire, don the plaid pjs, and cozy up to an entire season of Hallmark Christmas movies, and it isn’t even Thanksgiving yet.

I love to dress my children for the various holidays, but I do not enjoy paying a hefty price tag for clothes that they will wear for such a limited amount of time. Now that excludes pjs of course, as we sport the holiday jammies (or any jammies that fit for that matter) all year long.

At $8 a pop, you better believe I am adding these Christmas pajama sets to my shopping cart. Now the only question that remains is Team Santa or Team Elf??

Over the past five years, I have given birth to four children (yes, my hands are full). I have learned a lot while raising my little tribe of misfits 😜, and I feel quite confident in my abilities to build a comprehensive wardrobe for a newborn.

With that said, one of my absolute favorite pieces for a baby is the Sleep & Play (also known as a footed 1-piece and very similar yet not identical to footed pajamas). They are so easy and versatile, as they work for both daytime and bedtime (hence the name). I have been through my fair share of brands, styles, and fabrics, and I definitely have my favorites! The best part about Sleep & Plays, you ask?

No.👏 Lost.👏 Socks.👏

If you are having a baby or know someone who is having a baby in the near future, I highly suggest you get your hands on a few of these for yourself or for the mother-to-be. They are without a doubt my number one wardrobe staple for baby. Below you will find some of my top choices organized by category, and at the end of this post I will share my all-around favorite Sleep & Play.

 Feminine & Floral

Gap First Favorite Floral Footed One-Piece

Organic

  Little Planet™ Organic by carter's® Floral Footie        Little Planet™ Organic by carter's® Floral Sleep N' Play in Pink

Kimono-Style

ideal for a newborn’s healing umbilical stump

Janie and Jack STRIPED ELEPHANT KIMONO FOOTED 1-PIECE

Fabric

Terry- Like a soft beach towel

Thermal- Super soft and breathable waffle-like material

Fleece- Warm & snuggly. Perfect for cold winter weather.

Quilted- If only this came in adult sizes… I literally can’t think of anything more comfortable.

Muslin- Breathable, soft and comfy

With Accessories

perfect for hospital stays or coming home outfits

Magnolia Baby

 Yes, you read that right. Chip & Joanna have a line of baby clothes, because Of. Course. They. Do. And I am obsessed. These pieces are sweet, Southern, and classic.

 

Overall Favorite

This footed one-piece from Old Navy is my absolute favorite for a few reasons. For starters, the fabric is incredibly soft. The sleeves also fold over at the wrist to form mitts around the hands, which is so helpful with a newborn. The mitts protect their faces from scratches and they can’t fall off like other baby mitts do. Best of all, Old Navy’s footed one-piece is zip up, which is crucial when changing a fussy baby during the middle of the night.
