[#ad] When it comes to skin care during my travels, it has to be a brand I trust and love, because traveling to a new climate is already a stressor on your skin πŸ’†πŸΌ I never want to over stress my skin by not only changing the climate and environment, but by also bringing unknown products into the mix. The discovery collection from @colleenrothschild is the best skin care travel option because you get every single product you need for your skin care routine in travel size form, so your skin doesn't have to suffer during your travels. I'm no dermatologist, but I know a good skin care brand when I try it. I wrote a lot about every product in this set so head to the bloggity blog! (search Adaleta on Google or go to adaatude.com to read) πŸ““You can shop any of these products individually or get the travel kit here πŸ‘‰πŸΌ http://liketk.it/2s9qx #liketkit @liketoknow.it

It always feels good to be reunited with the sea 🌊 #flinnersingreece

I wrote a long, honest, heartful post to go along with this photo that got lost in the saving-shuffle. But I want to be so careful to not portray a picture-perfect life in these perfectly curated squares. And it's a tricky balance being a photographer who genuinely sees the world through beautiful photographs.
.
These last seven months have put a magnifying glass on old, familiar insecurities. The ones that have forced me to adapt a 20-minute getting-ready-routine because any more time in front of the mirror distorts things in my brain. Insecurities that have taught my husband to quietly walk out of the bathroom and turn the light off if I'm in there for too long, sighing and huffing as the reflection becomes more and more imperfect.
.
Being a new mom at 37 is not only a transition in going from the-woman-who-had-none for ten years to the-miracle-mom-of-one. It's also come with surprising body image issues I didn't expect to encounter. Like the self-diagnosed diastis recti that has left me with still-separated abdominal muscles and a still-looking-pregnant post-baby-belly (and is not-so-surprisingly most common in women over 35). Or the gloriously thick pregnancy hair that falls out by the fistful, and not only grows back with impossible-to-hide-awkwardness, it's also more grey than I like to show (or admit). My body is different. My skin is different. My hair is different. And I'm learning to embrace it all, a lot of times more uncomfortably than others.
.
We got up bright and early on Saturday morning for some family photos of our own, and I texted Josh late on Friday night while he was out with friends. "My back hurts and my posture is terrible and my belly is big and I want to wear a giant sack tomorrow," I wrote. But I dreamed of these photos for years. And I knew I would regret it if I canceled at the last minute.
.
So I get up. And spend my 20-minutes getting ready. And opt for the looser-fitting dress over the more figure-hugging one I had laid out. And I force myself to believe my husband when he tells me I'm beautiful.
.
Imperfect insecurities and all.

Listening to the locals and hitting the the hot spots. Thanks for the warm welcome, Nashville! #girlstrip #honkytonkcentral

Social media will never be my strong suit. Unless I'm on the clock, I'm usually too busy enjoying the moment than actually documenting it. (I recently deleted Snapchat and Twitter for this exact reason.) You guys.. I was in JAMAICA for a week, and I didn't post anything about it on Instagram when I was there! Whattttt!? SO out of the ordinary for this "look at me, look at what I'm doing" industry. I've grown so busy the last few months focusing on what I've got going on, I can hardly even remember to update anyone else-- let alone, look to see what others are doing. I'm not sure if this is a blessing or a curse, but it's working for me. So was Jamaica. That shit really worked for me, too. (;

β€œWhen you forget to order because the decor is too ridiculously pretty.” @barpalladio {πŸ“· by @stacieflinner}

It's crazy how the stuff that simply nourishes us, holds such a different place in each of our lives. For some it's just food, for others it's indulgence, for many it's scarce and for a few it's a study, but for me it's how I let my creativity speak. From the time I was a small girl, cooking has been an escape, a relaxation, a classroom, and today I am extra thankful to be privileged enough to explore myself through food. There are so many out there that don't have that chance and I never want to forget how lucky I am. β€’

These two adventures could not be any cuter and I am not talking about the two Australian shepherds Whitney and Zoe.

You are #beautiful. XxOo

Peonies and garden roses...two of my favorites! Planning: @mirandatassi, venue: @ballantynehotel, rentals: @partyreflections and @cottageluxe

The other day, I was scrolling through my archive of Europe photos (as one does when they miss living Europe and want to torment themself) and I found this photo I once took of "Winged Victory of Samothrace" at the Louvre. It reminded me of when I witnessed a proposal right in front of it last March. That moment was incredibly romantic + one of the many things that make me love Paris so terribly much. Sweet memories like this really make me miss traveling + living in France.

These floral sunnies are adorable on this sweet babe!! Available now on the website!! Pipsqueaksboutique.com
