Pink Blush Maternity Giveaway
As you guys know, I have struggled with some body issues during this pregnancy. I am happy to report, though, that I'm feeling really positive lately. I know that I'm staying active and trying to eat healthy, and I have found some pretty cute clothes to help me dress my growing tummy. I first heard about Pink Blush Maternity through other blogs I follow, and I was really pleased to see their selection of plus sized AND plus sized maternity clothes. This is a market I feel is severely under-represented. There are only a handful of stores where I've found actual plus size maternity clothes, and most of those you have to order online.
The folks over at Pink Blush Maternity were nice enough to send me this dress, and I really love it. I wore it to the Bernice Garden Farmer's Market on Sunday, and as we were walking down the street, a little girl stopped me and said, "You're so PRETTY!" It totally made my day! The dress is nice and stretchy, so I'm sure it can accommodate my growing belly. What I like about most of their clothes is that you can wear them post baby. They have some nursing robes that I really have my eye on!
I think the best thing to do if you're struggling with your body during pregnancy is to remember that bodies come in all different sizes, and even though you may not have that perfect "bump," you are beautiful. It's a tough job making a baby, so we need to continue to be kind to ourselves.
Speaking of being kind, I have a giveaway for you! Pink Blush was kind enough to let me give away a $75 PinkBlush gift card to their online store! So, leave a comment below telling me one kind thing you like to do for yourself, whether it's making time to read a nice book or telling yourself something you did well that day. Make sure you include a way for me to email you. I will pick the winner on Friday, May 13th. Even if you're not pregnant, there are tons of pretty dresses and outfits for all sizes that would look great this summer. Good luck!
Special thanks to my beautiful friend, Reva, who snapped these pictures of me. I don't often pose for full body shots, but this was really fun, and she did a great job!

I am happy to bring you posts from companies that I feel are doing good things for body positivity. Please comment only once for the giveaway.
