How Mychicbump came to be ....
Creating MyChicBump.com came as a way to document my pregnancy the second time around. I quickly started getting requests from followers to continue giving tips on how to style while wearing a bump. And from there, we started building up a large group of very loyal followers made up of these extraordinary women that want to find chic, stylish maternity clothes but are tempted to put on their husband’s T shirts because it's hard, and nothing seems to fit. For a pregnant woman with a very pregnant body, getting dressed can bring up a lot of anxiety and we start fixating on our perceived figure flaws. I’ve been there, we’ve all been there. But it all comes down to choosing clothes that better accentuate what’s most beautiful about us, pregnant women, our baby bump!
At MyChicBump, women can find flattering tips and tricks I’ve learned while carrying my own baby bump. We have now expanded the blog to include Post-pregnancy fitness, and beauty tips. I’ll also be spending some time talking about transitioning from maternity fashion as I slim down to my regular size. The world of fashion and beauty is a fast changing place so I’ll be sharing my thoughts, advice and style the whole way.
Also, this year I will be lucky enough to have my best friend and sister Jessica helping me on the blog. She is my inspiration in so many ways! She keeps me grounded and sane as I try to balance my life as a style blogger, a new mother of two, a wife and a member of my community.
A little bit about myself …
Michael and I have been married for almost 4 years. I like to tease him and tell everybody I married my Facebook stalker because well, it’s not very far from the truth actually. Thank goodness for wise mothers that give you the push that you need, in my case to stalk him back and look through his Facebook page before I ignored him. Haha! The day we actually met face to face we talked and talked for hours and laughed the whole time! We didn’t want it to end and Michael made sure of that. Two months later we were engaged and were married two months after that! Best decision of my life! I’m so grateful to know I’ll wake up every morning with him next to me. I am one of those women that consider themselves really lucky.
We have the funniest, cutest 2 yr old with the longest eyelashes you’ve ever seen and sadly, she gets it from her daddy and not from me. On November 23rd, we welcomed our second daughter Camila into our family and she has quickly stolen our hearts. It wouldn’t be a regular day at the Zaro household without impromptu dancing, wrestling (yes, wrestling Sigh), the sweet aroma of daddy’s dinner coming from the kitchen, and Naomi’s recent fascination of pretending to sing like a professional (very loud) opera singer! Add a newborn into the mix and you’ll definitely find some chaos but also a lot of laughter. Hopefully we’re building great memories for our sweet girls along the way.
