Holiday Jammies!

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-austin-texas-fashion-lifestyle-blogger-maternity-christmas-holiday-striped-pajamas-jockey-8livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-austin-texas-fashion-lifestyle-blogger-maternity-christmas-holiday-striped-pajamas-jockey-5If there’s one topic I have become an expert in at this point, it’s most certainly loungewear and pajamas! I was so darn excited to work on this post because a big pregnant belly this year means that next year I’ll have a little mini me dressed to match! I don’t know about you, but when I think of motherhood, matching holiday pajamas is #familygoals in my head, ha. I tried my hardest to wrangle my pups for this shoot, but alas, they preferred to go play outside in the mud…go figure, huh? 😉

If you’re looking for matching PJ’s for you and your friends, husband (…apparently Blake’s not into matching pajamas for photos…THIS year! 😉 ), family or ya know, you just want to feel extra festive and adorable on your own (…hi, that’s me!), then look no further than Jockey for all of your holiday pajama needs!

Cozy Gift Guide For The Gals

Hello, gift guide season! If there’s one gift that keeps on giving, it’s anything c-o-z-y! Perhaps the most overused word in the blogger world during the holidays (ha!), but for good reason…cozy things make you feel AMAZING and HAPPY. I don’t know about y’all, but the older I get the more of a homebody I become. I stand by the power of a pair of Ugg slippers (happy feet year round…what’s not to love?) or a calming face mask (100% yes to a pamper sesh!).

The Gift Of Sleep

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-austin-texas-lifestyle-blogger-bose-sleepbuds-noise-masking-sound-machine-review-8I have been compensated by QVC for this post. All opinions are my own.

Ohh to take a nap. Or rather, to simply get a good nights sleep these days. Between having to pee every three hours and two dogs waking me in the wee hours of the night…let’s just say sleep is something I could use a heck of a lot more of! And while the whole “baby pushing on my bladder” thing can’t really be helped at this point, wearing noise-masking sleepbuds can absolutely assist with the whole “dogs rustling around the room” thing (which to be honest, is 99% what keeps me awake anyway). Which brings me to the topic of this post: the importance of sleep and rest. Not only has my sleep improved since I got my Bose noise-masking sleepbuds in the mail, but Blake has also benefited from these powerful little guys. We take turns using them (…I think I’ve got a good Christmas gift idea in mind…ha!) and lemme tell ya, these things are straight up LIFE CHANGING.

Holiday Maternity Style

Hello, third trimester! Me oh my things are different around here…ha! Not only has our little guy increased in size (my pregnancy app compared him to the size of an acorn squash this week), but my body has been hard at work and changing daily…not to mention, dressing a big ‘ol bump has been more fun than ever. I used to be able to hide the bump (not intentionally, it just wasn’t quite as prominent in clothing) even just two weeks ago if I wore an oversize tee and leggings…but alas, those days are long gone and thus, I’m ready to display this belly proudly! With the holidays and baby showers fast approaching (I wore this adorable striped dress to my first shower last weekend!) and anything occasion where you’ll want to look and feel pulled together, I’ve been looking to Motherhood Maternity for aaaall my pregnancy outfits! I have been shopping there since I found out I was pregnant, and it’s proven to be my “safe haven” for clothes that make me feel really beautiful, even on days when I don’t necessarily feel my best!

**Fellow mama-to-bes! Motherhood is offering 40% off one full-priced item with code LIVVY40, time to get your holiday outfits ready!! (Valid through Dec. 10th, 2018).

Chicken Tortilla Soup

livvyland-blog-olivia-watson-chicken-tortilla-soup-recipe-bella-multicooker-2By Jessica Lee


News flash! It’s finally cold in Texas! I know to some of you this may not feel like a huge deal, but for those of you who live in the Lone Star State, you know what I mean. Sweater weather is a day-by-day thing down here, and a perfect winter day can quickly turn into shorts and a t-shirt weather. Womp womp.

So, when the mercury drops, we celebrate immediately with soup. Or at least I do! This Chicken Tortilla Soup is insanely simple because I made it in a Bella 6-in-1 Multi Cooker. Have you used one of these before? It’s kind of like a slow cooker, but SO. MUCH. BETTER. I use mine to make rice, hard boiled eggs, soups, risotto and so much more.

This Chicken Tortilla Soup is made almost entirely in the multi cooker. How great is that? Any recipe that requires minimal pots and pans is a win in my book!

Cozy At Home With Bobeau

I always gravitate towards pieces that make me feel good and that also feel true to my sense of style. Casual, comfortable, versatile…those are all words that describe the vast majority of my wardrobe, and Bobeau’s new collection of ultra soft everyday pieces and loungewear is totally speakin’ my style language! You’ve likely seen me wear this brand if you’ve followed me for a long time – they recently launched a few new collections exclusive to Nordstrom that are SO cute and cozy! Today I’m excited to style a few key pieces I am gushing over (…just wait to you get to the end of this post…that last loungewear set is SO magical I scooped a couple up as gifts for my mom and sister!).
