Marie Antoinette costume for kids

If you’re stuck in a costume rut with your little one and looking for something unique, girly, and not just another princess costume, you’ll love this Marie Antoinette costume for kids!

Marie Antoinette, the last reigning queen of France before the Revolution, represented, on the surface, opulence, fashion, and indulgences – she is often used as a symbol of over-the-top, girly girl couture fashion, usually seen with elaborate gowns, extravagant hair, and surrounded by the most beautifully delicious sweets. Underneath all the extravagance stood a Marie who represented feminism, strength, and a tender-hearted, complex woman who matured from a teenage queen to a graceful, elegant mother.

Who wouldn’t want to dress up as Marie Antoinette?!

The problem was, once I set my heart on my daughter being her for Halloween, all the costumes I fell in love with were at LEAST $300. I can’t even tell you how close I was to pulling the trigger on one of those gowns – thank goodness I didn’t because I found so many equally beautiful, affordable, more wearable options – and don’t worry, I’ll share them with you below.

The other alternative was to buy your typical princess, Marie Antoinette, or period-piece costume that are over-produced and way under the quality I was hoping for.

7 day healthy meal plan

Welcome to part two of my healthy eating meal plan – be sure to check out week one for more ideas.

Here’s a little background: My Instagram followers requested me to share my healthy eating progress after my third baby, so each week I’m sharing what I’ve been eating with updates about my results.

Before I was pregnant with my first, eating healthy and working out was a huge part of my life. During my two-year engagement, I lost 30 pounds the healthy way – slow, steady, and by making a daily commitment to cleaner foods and actually heeding portions and serving sizes.

Working out was a part of my daily routine, which is where my AB CHALLENGE circuit came from (it also happens to be my most popular pin on Pinterest).

I’ve given birth to three darling girls in January 2015, January 2017, and January 2019; each pregnancy proved increasingly more difficult, to say the least, and in the end, it was just about surviving day-to-day.

Superfood Quinoa Bowl

I’ve been on a healthy food kick after coming off of the worst third pregnancy and am finally able to eat and be excited about food again. You can follow me on Instagram and check out my weekly meal posts (here is part 1) for more inspiration and ideas, but I am especially excited about this Superfood Quinoa Bowl.

What is a superfood? While there are no such foods, nutritionally speaking, it’s a marketing term coined to label nutrient-rich, healthy foods, and this quinoa bowl is packed with them.

Prepare yourself to see lots of quinoa bowl recipes from me in the future! They’re extremely easy to make ahead of time or on-the-fly, it’s a great way to get your veggies in, and they’re packed with nutrients and flavor. Hello, new favorite lunch.
