Kelly Felschow is the voice behind The Vintage Blonde, a blog all about fashion, lifestyle, crafts & the home (with snippets of being a mama, of course!). She currently resides in Arizona with her best friend/hubby Ian and their adorable two month old little, Kennedy.
The Vintage Blonde was founded the very day Kelly found out she was pregnant (so exciting!) as it was something she had always wanted to do. Her blog was created to share and document the moments of her life and what she’s passionate about in hopes to inspire others.
As a mama who loves all things fashion, beauty, fitness, and home, we can’t help but be inspired by her! Kelly’s style is incredibly cool and we can definitely see little Kennedy already toting around her mama’s traits. Follow their adventures on Instagram here.
Top Beauty Product You Must Have as a Mom: Eye cream! My favorite is Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with avocado. It’s cooling and feels so good, really wakes the peepers up. I also have to have Benefits BADgal Lash Mascara, it’s one I buy again and again.
Favorite Lipstick Color or Chapstick: My all time favorite lipstick is M.A.C’s Ruby Woo. It’s the perfect shade of red and such a classic. For chapstick my go to has always been Burt’s Bees, right now they have a pumpkin one out that I’m addicted to.
Top 3 Pieces Of Baby Gear: My Lalabu Soothe Shirt is a huge must have. Kennedy loves to be worn and it’s such a simpler way to wear your baby. It’s a easy tank that has a built in pouch, I call it my kangaroo shirt and I love it! And my Ixchel Triangle Diaper Bag. This bag is not only cute and different but it’s got so many pockets and compartments to store everything you may need for baby.
The Boppy Newborn Lounger is another thing I love as a new mom. I tote this thing all over the house. When I shower or do my makeup I’ll just prop her up in it. It’s so nice to just be able to see her and not worry about her crying in another room. We also use it every morning in bed, we just sit her next to us while we have our morning coffee and at night on the couch while we watch our shows. I just like having her close and when I’m not holding her this is the perfect thing.
Favorite Kids Clothing Brand: I am obsessed with Etsy. You can find some really cute and unique stuff on there that nobody else will have. Plus, it’s really nice to help out small businesses.
Activity You Love to Do With Your Little: We love hiking. I will either wear her in the Lalabu or my husband will wear her in the Ergo 360 and we’ll hike. We live in Arizona so there’s so many amazing trails and the weather is almost always perfect. We also love to travel, so we will be doing that a lot with baby. Excited about some 2016 trips we have planned out.
Your Secret Obsession When You Get an Hour to Yourself: I love doing face masks. My favorite face mask right now is by Bioxidea. They have a mask called ‘Miracle 48’ with gold in it and it makes my face glow and look so refreshed. I also looove hot yoga, I feel like death when I’m doing it but feel amazing afterwards.
Closet Staple That You Can’t Live Without: I have so many items I couldn’t live without but I’d have to say hats! My closet is full of them and I feel like I almost collect them. If I’m in a huge rush and don’t have time to do my hair I’ll just throw a hat on and love that I can still look chic and put together. I also have to have my Jeffrey Campbell Booties, I actually bought two of the same pair, I love them that much.
Favorite Dessert Recipe Perfect for Mom’s On-the-Go: At least once a week I make this pineapple whip. It’s like a healthy version of Disneyland’s dole whip. Click here to get the recipe.
