Fab Five on Friday #5

Here are my Fab Five picks this week.
 As usual a little random. : )

#1- Revamp Your Closet! 
I was inspired by this post.
Cass Miller is so cute, and I love this post. She had the great idea to get rid of stuff she doesn't love. Which makes perfect sense! I think as a Mom I'm always holding onto stuff because
A. It Saves Money- it might come back in style right? 
B. I will fit back into it someday.
Well, I end up with a ton of clothes I hate. I might like it on a hanger, but after having kids our bodies change and we have to wear what flatters our momma figures. 
She shared some steps to get started. 
1. Make a Pinterest fashion board. 
This is the fun part! I pinned mostly fall/winter items since I am due in October. I'm not going to base my wardrobe on my pregnant state, since it's only gonna last three more months.
2. Purge
I've already got two bags full of clothes I can't wear while pregnant. I'm planning on going through them and getting rid of what I probably won't wear after baby. Which honestly is more than half I'm sure. 
3. Plan
Cass suggest keeping 15 items of clothing that you can mix and match. Keep pieces that you actually love and feel great in. Honestly, we probably only use that many pieces in our closet anyways. I know I do. It might be different if I worked outside of the home. I can see keeping way more for work. 

So I am really excited about this, and I already told the hubs I will need new clothes after the baby. Maybe I will actually wear something besides pj's for the first six months. That would be great : )
 I'm sure he would appreciate that.
I've been loading up my Wear board on Pinterest with some after baby looks. This will be my first time having a fall baby which is great for covering up that after tummy, right! I'm loving leggings, skinny jeans, loose tops/sweaters, and tall boots. Here are some of my picks:


#2- Hair cut
Next week I'm getting my hair cut and highlighted. I love going to a salon and getting pampered. I don't love paying for it, but you gotta do it sometimes. 
I'm thinking this length
and this color
Right now my hair is super long, past the halfway down my back point. I have a ton of split ends and it's just too long for a prego in the summer. 
I have a really hard time getting it cut though, I usually will only let the stylist cut off the ends.  We will see if I chicken out. I do love having long hair. 

#3- Mela bamboo swaddles
bamboo muslin collection
3 pack
mela bamboo swaddles 
I am in love with this blankets! My sister surprised me with them as a gift for making her a nursing cover and some burp clothes. Her baby girl will be here in two weeks! Mine will be here in three months and I can't wait to wrap her in these blankets.  I love the prints! I'm pretty sure I might have already shared these on a previous Fab Five post.  

#4- The Best Grilled Salmon Recipe
This is honestly the BEST marinade for salmon. It's so yummy, even my six year old ate all of it! 
I've also tried it with pork chops and shrimp. Super yummy, and easy to make!

The best grilled salmon ever 

#5- Mini Bubble Necklace
 I have this necklace in white/pink/and aqua. I love it!
Mini Me Bubble Statement Necklace 
I think I have around five necklaces from I've also bought some as Christmas presents last year, and end of the year teacher gifts, and birthday gifts.  They have a ton of different styles and sales all the time. You should like them on facebook so you can get coupon codes. I bought my mini bubble necklaces for $4.95. I've bought another necklace from them for only $1.95!

So that's my Fab Five for the week. What are you loving this week?
