Hey ladies, happy almost weekend! I live in dresses pretty much year-round, and I love this floral print from Kivari (non-maternity) – and this leather jacket by IRO is a must have!

I feel like I’ve hit that small window where the bump is pretty cute. Everyone keep saying you’ve popped!

I’m currently 22 weeks pregnant and expecting my third little girl late July.

I’m not going to lie, it’s been such a long time since I’ve had a baby I keep looking down and thinking, “oh shit, I forgot there’s a baby at the end of this tunnel” Lol…

I’m a little nervous and excited all at the same time!

As my girls started to get older I realized I wasn’t ready done with this chapter in my life. Before I even knew I was having another little girl, during the early pregnancy, I was working out and I saw a little girl in a vision… her name was Isla.

I knew this was my little Isla.

I told my husband that night I’m fairly confident it’s a girl and I’ve already seen her and know her name. “Isla”, I said. He smiled and said, “I love it.”

With both of my other girls, I felt like I didn’t come up with their names. The name popped in my head and it was confirmed for me. The same thing happened with this one.

The same week that I told my husband her name, I had to think of a name for my Natural Beaded Rows Hairline coming out.

Still not knowing if I was having a girl, the name Isla just kept coming to my mind. I thought “well, if it’s not a girl I still love the name and think we should use it for the hairline.”

My only concern was with my two other girls. Would they care if I named my hairline after my unborn baby? So I went to both my girls and ask them both. They replied and said they didn’t care, and thought it was a cute name as well. Later in life, I’m hoping this doesn’t come back to haunt me.

My mom, who also loves fashion and was an amazing seamstress, opened a bridal boutique in Salt Lake City, Utah when I was little.

She had one of the top bridal retail stores there and the first to bring in some major designers to Salt Lake City in the bridal industry. I blame her for my shopping addictions, or maybe I should credit her for my love of fashion. She named it Danielle’s and when people would ask, “Why did your name it Danielle’s?”, she would laugh and say, “because she’s my favorite daughter.”

Then she would go on to explain she just liked the name. When I was little, I was certain I was her favorite but as an adult, I’m fairly confident she loves all her daughters the same.

Two weeks later it was confirmed. I was having my third girl. When I heard the news, I smiled and kind of laughed because I think I already knew it was going to be a girl.

Next month, ISLA the official Natural Beaded Rows Hand Tied Hairline Launches.

I’m so excited about this product. It isn’t just another hairline where I came up with the name, but I helped side-by-side in the creation process of the product.

I’ve been using and wearing hand tied hair for almost 18 years, and I’m extremely knowledgeable and knew exactly what I wanted. I partnered up with a large company who owns multiple extension lines, but who had yet to create a hand-tied line.

With hand-tied hair trending, they wanted to find out who was the root of this particular product becoming so popular, and after they did some digging they came across NBR.

And although to my knowledge, hand tied hair has been around for 20+ years, it has not been trending until about the last five years. In fact, the original distributors that I would get my hair supply from five years ago said it was their lowest selling product.

I believe the reason it became popular is because of the NBR system in which it was used.

In 2019 ISLA will be only available to NBR professionals inside my mastermind student base, and will not be sold to the public.
