Hi guys! How are you? Hope you guys are having a wonderful time this Holiday season. Are you guys done shopping for gifts and decorating? Well I am happy to say that I think I am. It seems really hard for me to spend quality time with the kids and celebrate and do Christmas-sy things when I have all these things in my head that I need to get done. So I try to finish them all  right away so I can just enjoy, be present and create memories with them the remainder of the Holiday season.
Next year I think I will try to start earlier especially if I want to do an advent calendar with crafts as fillers. I figure we are going to be doing Christmas crafts anyway so I might as well wrap them and and add extra extra extra excitement to our activities! Haha! 

Holiday events are rolling in as well and I am sure it's the same for you. So making sure you have the right outfit for each event is a whole new other story!! 
Anyway, here is one casual but chic outfit that hopefully will inspire you. Did a belted blazer which is pretty chic and wore it with a casual denim shorts. Also if you are 50/50 on the bike shorts trend, these denim moto shorts can be a good option for you since the fabric is denim and not spandex-y type. And these Naturalizer heels for a pop of color! Perfect for brunch or a day event you might have. If your weather is cooler than ours here in Southern Cali, you can always put on a thick coat over this outfit.

These heels are so comfortable though, it's so perfect for an all day or night event. It comes in different color options too! Check out Naturalizer's website or store if you are still in search for shoes for this Holiday season, for something stylish and comfortable! You won't be sorry!! ;)

BASICS TO HAVE IN YOUR WARDROBE THIS HOLIDAY SEASON

November 28, 2018


Hi guys!  I know it has been a little while since I have been on here. Have been busy with the new addition to the family  and then now the Holidays. How are you guys and I hope you are doing well. I just wanted to do a quick life update and a post on 1 of the basics we all need for this season. 

On life update: It has been pretty hectic transitioning from 1 child to two but also a lot of fun! Children definitely are hard work but I am grateful to have 2 and they seem both to be overall pretty good. (Don't get me wrong, they do have their moments of crazy too! Haha!) Cole is almost 4 months, I can't even believe it! Seems to really be flying by this time around. He is such a sweet boy and almost always has  the biggest smile and just wanting to play.
Carter seems to have finally adjusted to having a baby brother. He now always wants to help mom and baby and play with the baby. He also loves his new school so that makes all of us at home  happy.









Anyway, did you guys score a ton of good stuff from all the Holiday sales going on right now? I think I did pretty good this time, mine is mostly on home deals. Just trying to finish some spaces in the house I have left unfinished for way too long.

(Taking a quick break while taking photos, because Carter had to tell me a story. Haha! Had no idea this was captured and he looked so adorable so I thought I'd include it :))


Now, about important basic pieces to have in your wardrobe this season or  actually every Fall, the one that goes on top of the list is a pair of basic, comfortable, black boots or in my case ... black booties since the weather is usually nice and warm here in Southern California.
Aside from my success on finding home furnishing deals, I also scored  a few great fashion pieces to update my wardrobe. One of them is this mustard top with  puff sleeves, I'm really loving this color for Fall. And another great score is this nice pair of basic black booties from Naturalizer. It's light and soft and pretty much goes with everything. It also comes in many different color options.


Anyways, I wore this outfit 2 different ways here. One of them is a more casual look. Hope you like them!

MAMA TO BE (X2), REASONS WHY I'M CELEBRATING NOW!

August 15, 2018

Hi guys! These are photos we took while I was still 9 months pregnant. 39 weeks to be exact. 
As you know I have always been a fan of slogan tees and when I saw this super cute Tee, I thought it was so perfect! 
Not only perfect for the obvious reason that I will become a mom again to another human but perfect because I wanted to share with you reasons why I'm celebrating being a "Mama to be" again this 2nd time around.
And before I continue I just wanted to tell you a little bit about this cute slogan Tee from Isabella Oliver It is maternity fit so it's bigger on the belly area, which is nice because it gives your bump room to grow.
And also  to mark Isabella Oliver's15th anniversary, they designed this Blake Maternity Tee in partnership with Maternal Health Charity Every Mother Counts. 50% of the net proceeds from the sales of this Blake Tee will be donated to the charity to aid their efforts in making pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother everywhere.
So not only will you own a cute and super comfortable Tee, you're also contributing to a good cause. And that sounds like a double win to me!!





NOW, ON TO THE REASONS WHY I'M CELEBRATING BEING A MAMA TO BE THIS TIME AROUND:

1. It was another chance for me to experience the miracle of life growing inside of me for the last time. I seriously didn't think we would get pregnant again but we really wanted another one. So when we found out, we were ecstatic! 

2. Celebrating and truly grateful for making it to 9 months of pregnancy with no complications 


3. Celebrating the blessing that Carter will have a sibling to grow up with and share everything with

4. Celebrating our growing family. I can't wait to make new memories and experiences with them. 


5. Celebrating Life and Health!!!!

6. Celebrating being a mom and how I get a chance everyday for a do over,  to make things better especially when we're having rough days. I have the next day to fix things with them and keep working on becoming a better mom.

Hope you guys enjoyed this post. 
Cole decided to come 1 week early which was great because we were all ready to meet him. We are all home now, healing and enjoying our new little addition to the family.

ENJOYING THE LAST FEW DAYS BEFORE THE BABY'S ARRIVAL

July 31, 2018




Hi guys! It has been a while since my last post here so I apologize. Hope you guys are all doing good and having a grand Summer! 
This week I am 38 weeks pregnant, feeling huge  and yes,  the baby can come anytime from now to 40 weeks. I think baby Cole is ready as he is pushing so much and sometimes really hard.  I go back and forth if I am ready or not, Ha! I am ready to meet Cole and be not pregnant and uncomfortable anymore but also kind of dreading the labor part. Since now it's the second time around I sort of know what kind of pain to expect. But I know that every baby and delivery is different,  but either way there is still going to be  tremendous amount of pain involved. I also feel like baby Cole is bigger than Carter, but then again they say you get bigger the more babies your body carries. So I guess I am just going to hope for the best!  :)
And really the most important thing is for Cole to be all safe  and healthy and same for me so I can recover fast and care for him and Carter as soon as possible. 




So for now I really just want to enjoy the last remaining days as a mom with only 1 child and spend quality time  with  Carter every moment possible. He's seriously the sweetest boy and his age right now is  so fun! He talks non stop now but I love the conversations we have all day haha! It's literally like having a partner in crime with you all day. 
Although it has been a little challenging here now to do something outdoor with Carter since our Summer temps have been pretty high everyday. The heat has been  intense.  And now at 38 weeks I am actually starting to feel tired, always hot and  uncomfortable and definitely no more jeans or pants. Right now, it's all dresses or some days maternity shorts and a cool top. So I am really thankful for stores that make and sell cute maternity clothes. The details in sizing , style and design really do make a difference. 

On this post, I am wearing a dress from Isabella Oliver. They are actually one of my favorite maternity stores ever! I got some pieces from their brand too when I was pregnant with Carter and was able to use them post partum. They don't skip out on style, quality and details so every clothing is pretty much perfect.  Their AW18 collection is out and I really love a lot of their pieces. They are are all SO cute!! From casual to dressy they've got it covered. So if you are expecting or if you know someone expecting don't forget to check them out, you will love their selections!!





Well we are almost ready for Cole's arrival. Nursery is done and just need to finish prepping baby gears but baby car seats are installed and hospital bags are packed. And just need to wash some baby toys and baby bottles.
 I can't believe he is coming soon!! And that our lives are about to change!!

WHERE TO FIND THE CUTEST MATERNITY CLOTHES

May 24, 2018




Hi guys! Hope you are all doing well! As for me, I am doing great. Tired but great. I am literally creating this post in the airplane on our way back from our mini vaca from Europe. We spent  a few days in London and Paris.  The vacation was amazing and a very much needed one.
Now, I can't wait to see Carter, cuddle him, play with him, tickle him and give him tons of kisses!!






On my last post I had mentioned that I was sort of not having the smoothest pregnancy and kept getting dizzy spells. 
And I have mentioned that most of the clothes I have been wearing has to be really comfortable and easy because being uncomfortable and having to fuss is the last thing I need. It was a challenge to find something comfortable but still cute and something that fit just right. And I had a few staples that I love and would wear everyday if I could and I am excited wanted to share one of them them with you!







One of them is this black dress from Shop Pink Blush!  They have the cutest maternity dresses and  so many different styles available.
This black dress I really love because I can easily wear it casually with slides and sneakers (which I usually do) and I can also easily dress it up with heels or a blazer. It is so so soft and flattering too on the front, back and sides! Yep! With this ever growing belly and mind you I think it's pretty big this time around, it is hard to find clothes that look good with the bump.



Hope you enjoyed this post. I still need to upload Lego Land pictures and will also do a post about our trip soon!
