Best Bra's for Big Boobs!

Next to shopping for jeans and bathing suits, the most discouraging thing can be shopping for a good bra. If you are like me and haven't fit in a size under D since you were in junior high school... you feel the legitimate pain of trying to find something to support your assets. I'm a 32 DDD (or F), so I understand the struggle. I normally wouldn't bare my chest at all (unless at the beach) especially on camera, but felt the necessity upon finding the most amazing bras I have ever worn

I was over the moon ecstatic to discover the brand Third Love. Their sizing, bra support, and range is perfect for small to big boobs. They really cater to finding the perfect fit, and let me tell you I am singing their praises! The video will explain the 3 bra's and why I love them so much! Especially the wireless bra, making my pregnancy even more comfortable! So be sure to watch my favorites, then head over to Third Love and take their Fit Finder to see which bras will make your chest fall in love!

My other 2 favorites come from, very surprisingly, the Victoria's Secret Pink Line! They just changed their sizing to incorporate multiple band and cup sizes. Which is why I couldn't believe that I fit and felt comfortable in such a gorgeous bralette! I'm excited about their new sizing and so excited to shop their bra's and bathing suits now that I can find my size!

Have fun checking out these finds!

Sunkissed Hair | Smudge Roots and Sombre Balayage Highlights

"Balayage is a French word meaning to sweep or to paint. It allows for a sun-kissed natural looking hair colour - similar to what nature gives us as children - with softer, less noticeable regrowth lines."
Hair is a gorgeous and exciting process. I am so lucky that I get to do my passion for a living, and its days like these that make me sit back and be proud of the hard work and education that goes into a beautiful outcome. This process for taking Ashley back blonde was a 5 1/2 hour day that after it was all said and done, turned out just like we hoped. Maybe even better! I wanted to share the steps I took in getting her from this picture...

To the gorgeous color we have pictured at the top! I can't stress it enough to my clients and other hairstylist's, that a color correction takes time and patience. I try my hardest to get it right the first time, so when I approach hair it might be different then how others would do it. Thats the great part about being a stylist, we all have our own tricks and I love that I can share the ones I've learned and the methods I use.

Hope you enjoy this video, and thank you so much for watching! Don't forget to follow me on snapchat: ALEXSISMAE, and on Instagram @alexsismae!

When looking to figure out what kind of jeans you need for the ever growing tummy, figure out your budget then get to shopping! Its important to try a bunch of different fits and styles. Since I knew that I didn't want the "over the tummy" panels on my jeans I went for the elastic panel jeans. These are my two absolute favorites, and two amazing jeans that will make your pregnancy and post pregnancy super comfortable!  Check out the video to learn all about why I LOVE these two Jeans!
(PS I cuffed my jeans at the bottom because I like to wear them that way with booties.)

Week 16-17 Pregnancy Vlog | Favorite Maternity Products & Gender Ultrasound

Now that I am in the second trimester I have a few things that have been helping out! The thing that I have learned is to ask questions from other moms who have gone through the motions and take in their knowledge. So I wanted to share with you what I've been loving into my 17th week! Also, you get to see a quick clip of our gender ultrasound when we found out that we were having a girl! Best day ever!
