Bella Gravida Maternity Subscription Service

I participated in a Blog Blast Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Bella Gravida. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

When I was shopping for maternity clothing during my pregnancies, it was incredibly frustrating for these reasons:

  • I was always so hot and hated trying on clothes in a stuffy dressing room.
  • There was always one teeny tiny rack of clothes for pregnant women.
  • Lack of variety and cute options.
  • Maternity clothes are expensive! It is hard to justify dropping a ton of cash for clothes you’ll only wear for a few months.
  • I felt restricted to a pair of stretchy maternity jeans and t-shirts.

96% of pregnant or recently pregnant women found that maternity clothing was too expensive, low quality, or lacked variety. I would definitely put myself with those 96%.

Enter Bella Gravida, which means “Beautifully Pregnant” in Italian. Love that!

They are a subscription service for high-quality, fashionable maternity clothes. For as low as $39 a month, you can have beautiful maternity clothing sent to you. There’s no deadline for you to return them by, and you have unlimited exchanges. Also – free laundry service! Yes!!

They have the style choices: Classic, Modern Trendy, Romantic, Bohemian, Dramatic, and Southern Chic. I think I’m a Classic with maybe a little Southern Chic thrown in.

If you are pregnant or know anyone who is, spread the word. No more frumpy maternity clothes!

Barbie Rock N’ Royals Concert Experience

To facilitate this post, I was sent two Barbie dolls and complimentary tickets to the Barbie Rock N’ Royals Concert Experience. 

Have you seen the new Barbie movie? We rented Barbie Rock N’ Royals and my girls loved it! It helped that they had the dolls, Courtney and Erika, to dance and sing along with them.

This Saturday, September 26th, we will have the exciting opportunity to see a live concert performance of songs from the movie including, “Raise Our Voices,” “What if I Shine,” and “Brand New Song” from surprise guests (excited to see who those are!)

There will also be a Pink Carpet, in true Barbie style! We’ll be able to get rock star ready in the Super Style Zone, jam out in the VH1 Rock Star Zone, and dance the day away in the Be Super Dance Zone!

For tickets to the Rock ‘N Royals Concert Experience, head here:  All ticket sales will benefit VH1 Save The Music!

We are so excited – would love to see you there!
