My Pregnancy Uniform: Aurora

We are so pleased to introduce you to Aurora for our latest My Beauty Uniform Installment. Aurora is a model, blogger, and first time mama who resides in Salt Lake City, Utah. We just love her swoony style and have loved watching her pregnancy journey via her Instagram.

Read on as she discusses pregnancy through a refreshingly honest lens and why she thinks her little one may come out a mini Leslie Knope!


What is your daily beauty routine? What products do you use?

My routine is actually pretty basic, I prefer to let my “natural pregnancy glow” shine. 😉 In the mornings I just wash my face with water, and I use a Neutrogena moisturizer. The only makeup I wear on a daily basis is Anastasia Dip Brow, mascara, and a little bit of bronzer to define my cheek bones, now that my face is filling out!

Do you have any beauty rituals you adopted since becoming pregnant?

Since becoming pregnant, I definitely pay more attention to the skin on my body that’s not on my face! I know that you can’t really prevent stretch marks topically (my midwife says eating a balanced diet is the key to avoiding stretch marks!), but I still moisturize my tummy almost every day. I use whatever is closest to me when I’m getting ready, honestly, so on any given day it can be any of the following products! Bath and Body works satsuma body butter, my Neutrogena moisturizer, or I recently got a stretch mark preventative oil in the mail that I’ve been trying.

What has been your go-to style during pregnancy? Describe your favorite outfit you’re wearing these days?

Leggings and a sweater, almost every day! Haha. I somehow have managed to still fit into all of my pre-pregnancy leggings, so I’ve avoided buying any maternity leggings. Now that I’ve got less than two months left I’m thinking it may be time to invest in some that fit over my belly, though!

Are there any particular food or drinks you love to keep you feel good and glowing?

I constantly crave breakfast foods! I swear, this baby is going to come out a Leslie Knope! One of my absolute favorites, and I make my husband make it for me almost every morning, is toad-in-a-hole (toast with a hole cut out and an egg over easy cooked inside) with bacon and a cup of coffee. I’m sure I’ll never want to eat it again after my pregnancy, because it’s been my breakfast of choice for the past 3 months at least.

What wisdom do you hope to pass down to your little one?

I just hope that I’m able to instill self-love in my son, and show him to be a kind and respectful man, like his father.

What advice would you give to other pregnant moms about feeling like themselves and enjoying this time?

Pregnancy is really hard, and I hate it when people pretend that it’s not! It’s not all pregnancy glow and cute little fluttery kicks. There’s a lot of puking and charlie horses in your butt while you’re sleeping and feeling like you can’t breathe when you sit down. So my advice is to try to cherish the time you have with your significant other before baby gets here, and no matter how insecure you feel about your growing body, take lots of pictures! Not only will you regret not having those photos eventually, but your kids are going to love seeing them someday! You’ll never be pregnant with this child ever again, so no matter how hard it is, document it.


Thank you, Aurora! We’re so grateful you shared your experience with us.
