Hi friends! Hope you’re having a wonderful day. <3

Recently, I was gifted the new HP X360, which is an amazing laptop/tablet hybrid. It has four modes: laptop, tablet, tent and stand. The laptop mode is perfect for toting around or writing blog posts, tablet mode is ideal for travel, and the tent/stand modes have been helpful for video streaming.

I put on an online barre workout, set up the little tent, and was able to easily watch the video without tilting the screen. It’s a versatile, light, and awesome computer.

Hiiiiii! How’s the day going? Hope you’re having a lovely afternoon. (We’re equally obsessed with the lavender growing in the yard. Any ideas for what to do with it?

(from my own experience + the IDEA session I attended) This is something I’m asked about fairly often, but it can be a variable topic since every pregnancy is so different. I figured that I could share my own experience (as you never know when someone will share an awesome tip or trick) along with […]
