Hi there! I was super excited when I was approached by Bornbrite. I’m all about bonding with baby “B” while his still in my womb. I know from my son that that bond is real. When I was pregnant with him I used to listen to music and sing to him, he’s now 7 years old and every time he listens “that” song he falls asleep. 🙂

What I loved about Bronbrite is that you have a book for every stage of your pregnancy. You can create an irreplaceable bond by reading to your baby and you can invite the rest of the family to be part of it.

Bornbrite was created by a caring mom for all the parents who wish to create a prenatal bond with their baby while reading aloud during each pregnancy month. Some of the benefits are enabling early bonding, stimulating brain development, facilitates auditory reception and promotes language and speech skills.

I hope you enjoyed this post and give Bornbrite a try, I can assure you that you will be building this bond for the rest of his/her life. 🙂

Hi loves! Today I wanted to share some of the first outfits I’ve got for baby “B”. (Yes, we already chose a name but we are going to wait a little longer to share it). 😉

I’m starting week 27 and so far things are going great, he’s growing strong and healthy. So far I’ve been struggling with my energy levels, there’s days that I can do 100 things at the same time and days that I struggle to get out of bed. But it’s all worth it.:)

Enough talking and lets start with the cutest baby outfits I found so far! My first shopping spree it’s from ZARA, by now you all now how hard I love that store in particular when they are on Sale. Each item was less than $20, so I stocked up with some nice essentials that are perfect Fall/Winter.

I hope you enjoy it!:)


  

Today I wanted to share with you something that is really close to my heart. I thought a lot whether I should write about this or not, but since this is my space feel free to ignore this post if you feel uncomfortable. To those who stayed thank you, I hope you enjoy it. 🙂

I was writing a post about our last travel experience to Disney Hawaii, but I kept thinking about something else. This beautiful blogger community is giving me the chance to know some amazing women, with some of them I’m coincidentally sharing this beautiful stage in life called pregnancy.

With pregnancy comes a lot of unwanted advice, but that’s no the theme of today blog post. Today’s blog is about BODY SHAMING. Yes, you might think who in the world would do such a thing specially to a pregnant woman, but trust me, I experienced it myself and I know many other pregnant ladies that will feel related to this.

We all know that motherhood as is it it’s hard enough. Trust me when I tell you that we know how our pregnant body is constantly changing. We have an entire closet as a reminder that we owned clothes and shoes we can’t wear for quite some time. ;(

We don’t need reminders, not even in a ‘sarcastic’ or ‘funny’ way, that our faces are rounder, our hips bigger and our ankles swollen.
Don’t get me wrong, I received the most beautiful compliments and for those I’m grateful. But not everyone has the support I have and some of them can’t deal with these types of comments. So maybe next time you see a pregnant woman remember that… One kind word can change someone’s entire day. 😉

  

  

Welcome to a new blog post! I’m sharing with you my five favorite red lipsticks.
I love how a red lip look can make any simple outfit look glamorous, even with little o no makeup. Reds lips are here to stay! If you find the perfect shade of red for your skin tone you can wear it all year long.

I tried several shades of red before I found which ones I liked better. Finally I realized I always ended up picking blue-toned reds, I do think they look better with my skin tone.

But enough chatting and let me start with my five favorite red lipstick choice!

NOTE: If you can’t find your favorite red lipstick leave it the comments below! I might find a new favorite. 😉

1) L’OREAL: COLOR SHINE STAY IN ENDLESS RED

I found this lipstain to be more a daytime red, I usually wear it during the day because of it’s glossy finish. I like that non- sticky feel and that leaves my lips soft and hydrated during the day. Great choice for a great price!($10)

2) LIME CRIME: IN RED VELVET

This is a liquid matte lipstick it glides on as a liquid and dries out to a velvety matte finish. You can drink and eat and it will stay there as long as you want. I do like to apply some lip balm before applying it. Plus it’s cruelty free and vegan.($20)

3) STILLA: ALL DAY LIQUID LIPSTICK IN FIERY

Liquid lipstick, with vitamin E and avocado oil for hydrated yet matte look. It’s highly pigmented, last up to 6 hours and it’s budge-proof. It’s applied like a gloss yet has the staying power of a stain.($24)

4) ROUGE VOLUPTE SHINE: ROUGE IN DANGER

Besides the gorgeous packaging this red lipstick it’s perfect for a daytime look. It’s super creamy, moisturizing and has a nice sheer finish. You can apply several layers for a deeper color.($37)

5) ROUGE VOLUPTE: RED MUSE
This lipstick is the perfect all time red, bright also creamy and it smells so good. If you like creamy formulas then this lipstick is for you. It tend to use this lipstick with a lip liner to avoid feathering. You can also apply several layers to get a darker shade of red.($37)

  

Hello and welcome to a new post!
Today I wanted to share with all of you some really exciting news! By now you may already know that I’m expecting my second child, a beautiful rainbow baby. 🙂
Baby ‘B’ (I will wait to share her/his name) came into our lives at the perfect time.

Today I partnered up with Freshly Picked to bring you this exciting news! They make the most adorable and comfortable moccasins perfect for newborns and for those first baby steps.

With this pregnancy we found out really early if we were having a girl or a boy, perks of getting older. 😉 The doctor did some genetic testing which tells you right after the 10th week what you are expecting ( I found out with my son that we were expecting a boy when I was almost 5 months pregnant), so it was quite fast!

Without further ado we are thrilled to announce that…we are expecting a baby boy!

We can’t wait to meet our little bundle of joy and welcome this rainbow into our lives.

Hi there, welcome to a new blog post! Today I wanted to share with all of you a lash treatment called Keratin Lash lift.

I wanted to try to this treatment for quite some time since I had already tried eyelash extension I gave it a try. This time I wanted to tried something that worked similar to eyelash extensions and avoid getting my own lashes damaged.

This lash lift it’s different than the ones to that were done some years ago with a smaller curl. The eyelash profesional used a silicone pad so the curl is more natural and each lash can be lift individually adding volume to them.

You are able to choose the size of your curl ( Small, Medium or Large). I decided to go with small since I was looking for a natural yet “dramatic” effect. The lashes are “glued” to the silicone pad for about 40 minutes ( I took a nice and deserved nap 😉 ). It’s not painful but your eyes need to be stay closed the entire time.

After that the technician applied a tint to make them stand out even more. The lash lift lasts around 8 to 12 weeks. Way more convenient that eyelash extensions if you ask me! 🙂 I was also told not to wet them and avoid makeup for just 24 hours.

If you are like me and are not entirely sure about eyelash extensions you should give the Keratin Lash Lift a try.

Here’s a before and after picture, those were the results with no mascara at all!

Hi ladies! Today I’m sharing my La Mer Soft Fluid Long Wear Foundation experience.
I was a little skeptical to try it at first, a few months ago I purchased La Mer’s BB cream and ended up returning it. It was just too oily for my skin and I was not pleased with the shades either.

Despite this bad experience, I decided to give it a chance when I heard they launched a new foundation with a brand new formula.

IMG_8252

I learned my lesson and asked for several samples first, not only because I wanted to make sure the formula was going to work with my skin; but also I wanted to pick the right shade.

IMG_8260

Skin wise, this new foundation comes with all the skin benefits you’ll find in any La Mer product plus SPF 20, amazing healing properties, hydrating and of course their signature Miracle Broth. You can’t go wrong with any La Mer products.

IMG_8267

Now lets talk about coverage, I found it has a medium coverage but you are able to build it up to full, in my case I like the fact that I can still see my skin. It covers really well but it doesn’t feel you are wearing tons of makeup. I have a few freckles and this foundation blurred them away graciously.
This formula it’s so much better than the BB Cream I tried!

I was surprised with how glowy and healthy the skin looked, not greasy but with a healthy glow, even after using face powder my skin looked amazing.

Price wise, it is a big investment, I wont lie. But in comparison with the rest of La Mer’s products is not a such a crazy price. If you are able to indulge yourself give it a try I promise you wont regret it.

  

I love doing my makeup and using different lipstick colors and also as part of my beauty routine I take very good care of smile.

I do think that a great smile is the best accessory anyone can wear, men or women.

This is why I decided to partner with Smile Brilliant. I thought it was a great product to try and review.
Smile Brilliant is an at home professional teeth whitening that let you have great results in the comfort of your home and for the fraction of the cost. How cool is that?!

You can order the entire kit and they will send you all the materials to make your own mold, whitening gel and a desensitizing gel to avoid any discomfort.

All you need is to make your impressions send them back and they will send you your custom fitted trays. You won’t have to worry about the envelope. You will receive an envelope to send your impressions with the proper address. That’s all you have to do!

I loved the results so far, and the idea of doing the treatment at any time while doing other things around the house is just perfect for my schedule. In fact, I’m wearing my trays while I’m writing this post. Talk about multistasking! LOL

Professional Teeth Whitening

  

Hi, there!
Welcome back! I remember I was once asked by a friend if I cooked every day, at that time I felt it was a silly question. Well… we do eat every single day so the obvious answer was YES! But now, I understand the meaning of that “COOKING” meant.

My husband and I come from a family where food is made from scratch. Every single year during New’s Year day they made homemade ravioli. Yep, they do they take a lot of time! But, the nicest thing about it is building memories around those moments.

Today, I partnered up with Hello Fresh. Hello Fresh is a subscription service in which you can pick different meal plans depending your lifestyle. They will send everything you need to prepare a homemade meal to your doorstep. How great is that?! They offer different types of meal plans for meat eaters or veggies lovers. I decided to get the Veggie Plan with all meat free recipes.

Don’t panic with every meal you will receive a booklet with a step by step on how to prepare them. It was super easy and the best part was to watch how excited my 7 year old was.

img_8099

I learned that getting my son involved with me in the kitchen was the perfect way to connect with him. Thanks to Hello Fresh he ate three Veggie meals with out hesitating! That’s a total win!
I loved how easy it was and the best part was spending time with my little one.

I encourage you to try it at least once and have fun with it. Use it as a family activity after all we are making memories every single day of our lives. 😉 It’s not just a box with food, it’s a box full of memories. 🙂
