Q&A with Book of Leisure's, Elizabeth Kimbrough

Styling yourself with a baby bump is no easy task, especially when you are well into the third trimester. Book of Leisure's author, Elizabeth Kimbrough, pulls off the next to impossible; at 38 weeks Elizabeth looks as stunning and flawless as ever. I decided to get the inside scoop on what this Southern Bell has been doing during her pregnancy. In our interview she shares with us her beauty routine, the best advice she has been given, and her favorite registry items. 

1. What was the inspiration for starting your blog?

Book of Leisure originally started out as a blog to document my life as a newlywed, over the following months though I found it taking more of a direction toward personal style. Today it is pretty much a combination of the two, especially here lately documenting our journey as becoming first time parents:)

2. You are an expecting mom, so I have to ask what food have you been craving ,if any?

Haha, how about everything?! Seriously, name something and at some point I've craved it. You know the old wives tale-sweets for a girl, salty for a boy? We had no idea what to expect since I was loving both! {We later found out we had a little boy on the way}

3. What were/are your top three must haves on your baby registry?

The Baby K'tan Baby Carrier-This is more affordable than many other popular popular options out there and the fit is suppose to be incredible. I've been told this is a great carrier for newborns since they can be wrapped up so tightly, helping them feel secure while mom can carry on with what she needs to get done.
Little Giraffe Blanket- The softest, comfiest blanket ever. You will love wrapping your bitty in it and want one for your own!
Fisher-Price My Little Snugabunny Bouncer- When I first began registering my sister told me to be sure to add a good vibrating bouncer. I've read endless praises of this bouncer...can't wait for little boy to snuggle up in it:)

4.  As far as maternity wear what is an item that every expecting mom should invest in?

A great pair of maternity denim. You will wear these more than anything, so you want to get jeans that you will feel great in. I found a couple of pairs at Gap that I've absolutely loved.

5. What has been the best advice you have received during your pregnancy?

I was told to really savor this time with my husband. It's the last time it will be just the two of us. So go to a movie, go to dinner, have fun!

6.  What is your favorite trend for spring 2014?

I've always gravitated towards bold prints and lots of color, which is why I was thrilled to see it incorporated into so many clothing lines this spring.

7. What beauty product have you had in heavy rotation as of late?

My biggest beauty investment here lately has to be my tummy cream- StriVectin SD {aka-magic in a bottle}. It is pricier but I knew I didn't want to play with the risk of getting stretch marks. At 38 weeks, not a mark in sight!
