I decided to write a post in regards to a certain registry because I feel that, many new moms love freebies and perks, and this certain place has it all! Really Quick side note and I promise it will make sense, haha….. My best friend, Sherrie (who is also a mom blogger, and I will link her blog to this one below) gave birth to my beautiful, smiley, nephew Logan Scott. Logan was born in April of last year, which is when our little princess will be arriving as well. When Sherrie made her registry, she used Buy Buy Baby. I went to Buy Buy Baby as a consumer to buy for Sherries baby shower, and I was highly impressed with their customer service. You walk into the store, and ask for the particular baby shower you’re buying for and they’re willing to help you from beginning to end. I literally mean, from beginning to end. They will walk around with you, if you feel overwhelmed on what to buy for the baby shower and help you break it down. Like I said, I promised this would lead into something more… well, naturally I decided to ask Sherrie how the process was for making a registry as the Parents to be this time. She had nothing but awesome things to say, so I decided to move forward with Buy Buy Baby as the main registry!
Now, for the fun stuff… Our experience as Parents to be with Buy Buy Baby, was just as great as being a consumer.. probably even better. We had a consult with the registry rep, and she gave me (the mom to be) a water bottle, my hubby received the booklet of what we should reference to for scanning purposes (also had a great coupons inside) and then gave us the scanner and some directions. This is the short version of us sitting down with the rep for 20 minutes learning about their registry and referral program. Anywho, after having a great time scanning and looking at cute baby items, and all things batman.. yes we are having a girl, but Daddy believes that she has to be a DC fan, not a “marvel” fan like her momma….. We then brought our scanner back to the counter. When we returned, the rep had printed out registry invitation cards and gave us a BAG full of free goodies, and coupons. This wasn’t your normal “thanks for picking us as your registry bag”.. This was a THANK YOU! for picking us as your registry bag! This bag was truly filled with items that you would actually want to use, multiple samples and airplane size travel items. It was an awesome way to end our scanning trip.
Oh yeah about that referral program, if you utilize their registry and you tell them your friend recommended you because they also used the registry, that person would in turn, receive 25$ off 100$ purchase coupon. It’s a nice little surprise for the person who referred you, and you also get so many more perks for using them as a registry 😉
I want to start off by saying THANK YOU, to Mama Bird Box! Mama Bird Box was created by two sisters who believed in pampering the Mama who is going through pregnancy and deserves a little something 🤗. Thank you Beth and Becca!
I felt very honored after Mama Bird Box reached out to me and decided to create my very first unboxing video! I was so excited to open the box.. I actually had to do a little unboxing before the true unboxing .. Oops.. But it’s like Christmas Day when you receive fun mail, I couldn’t wait! However, in the video I went in depth on what I actually received in my adorable box.😊
I look forward to hearing what you all think about this unboxing. If you’re looking to give someone a baby shower gift, this is an awesome way to surprise them!
Not going to make this a longer post because I feel that learning about the brand is a bit more important than any goo goo gah gah I’m going to write. Based off the brand name, many people may be confused.. However, Kitty Whoop Ass is created by Jules Lavallee. Jules created this line to help empower women while giving back to the community. According to Jules website, “Jules admits that Kitty Whoop Ass is her alter ego. She is fiercely competitive, independent, kind, and compassionate.- An enigma.” I would have to agree just by speaking with her and the name of her brand 😉 ! The VERY BEST PART about this comapny is that she donates a portion of her proceeds to The Big Cat Rescue!! Who doesn’t love cats, big cats, and donating money while buying a stylist, cute shirt! I have had the honor of writing this post, but most of all being able to represent her brand and of course my Otis (our son, our first born, our kitty) has joined in on the photos as well. Thank you Jules for sending me this extremely comfortable, very adorable shirt that also fits over my baby bump!
I highly recommend if you’re a cat lover, or know a fierce cat lover that is interested in rocking a Kitty Whoop Ass shirt, that you send them to www.KittyWhoopAss.net ! These shirts are now ON SALE for 17$, and they have Kitty Whoop Ass MUGS that are coming the end of January for 12$, just in time for valentines day!! Don’t forget, 1$ per each item sold will be donated to The Big Cat Rescue! The more you buy, the more that is donated to this awesome organization!
Our little girl has officially turned 6 months old.. I mean, in my belly of course. Today, Layla and I had our doctors appointment and found out she is doing great, extremely active and likes to kick the doctor when he was searching for her heart beat. Sounds like we have an athlete on our hands ;0)
I decided to dress extremely comfortable, and of course I had to reach in my closet for my fashionable, yet trendy maternity wear by Pink Blush Maternity. Pink Blush has clothing not only for expecting mothers but for those ladies looking for adorable, trendy and fashionable apparel. I decided to wear my Oatmeal Cowl Knit Maternity Sweater for ultimate comfort. This sweater is literally to die for! It has been my go-to for when I really don’t feel like putting clothing on. This sweater is not only cute and comfy, but its going to be my go-to while pregnant as well as when I am not. Today I decided to just throw my hair up, slip on my Pink Blush Maternity sweater and some cute flats and head to relax after my appointment. Today was a much needed time to myself, with my kitty and my pup and of course my lovely maternity sweater.
I decided to post a blog welcoming 2016, and although I contemplated what to write, or how to go about the post.. I am thinking, showing you all my New Years Eve fashion featuring a cute jewelry accessory company, and some positive quotes would be the way to go. If you have made it to 2016, you should be happy, grateful and thankful. So many have not made it to the new year, under numerous circumstances and regardless of your economic, financial or physical standing, you have made it to 2016. You have made it another year to start clean, to have a blank slate to write a new story, or if you choose to continue the story you have already written. No matter what, be positive.. when you’re in doubt, remember someone has it worse than you do. You do not need anyone else to tell you how to feel, to tell you how to be happy or to live your dreams for you. As cliche as it sounds, just remember to work hard, and your dreams will only work if you do. No one owes you anything.
Now that I gave a bit of my brain to those who may need that little push when reading this.. I can now let you know how awesome it was to rockMimys Trinkets for my NYE outfit !! I wore a LBD (little black dress) from Burlington Coat Factory, and rocked my awesome black knee high length boots from Arden with an amazing gold coin necklace and gold shield ring from Mimys Trinkets! I had a great time ringing in the 2016 with family and friends and starting off the year with nothing but positive vibes!
This holiday, I was fortunate enough to see my family after a long 6 months. They were able to meet baby Layla Fiona, and had a chance to feel her kick. I am becoming quite uncomfortable at times, but I can not complain about my apparel as a pregnant lady so far. I have been blessed with the opportunity to review and showcase an amazing cute and trendy maternity fashion company, Pink Blush Maternity. Pink Blush Maternity / Shop Pink Blush has sent me really cute maternity clothing, and I am so excited to share my first maternity fashion blog post with you! With the holidays, it’s hard to find something trendy that doesn’t look like everything else.. For example, not so much green, red, and “christmasy” colors.. I decided to go with a mustard yellow look. Most people believe mustard yellow is more fall, however with the weather here in New York, the environment still feels warm and fall like, so many of the trendy colors include the taupe, mustard yellow, browns and so forth. I chose to rock this adorable yellow button up 3/4 sleeve maternity top, which happens to be on SALE! Yes… I said ON SALE, for 24$ RIGHT NOW! If you’re looking for trendy, cute fashionable clothing head over to Pink Blush Maternity and they ALSO have Shop Pink Blushwhich is for people who do not want to shop maternity! They cater to us all 🙂 !!!!
Little words to explain why I wanted to write this post. Mainly because I was feeling my natural hair today, and felt like rocking a fro and decided to do a little mini shoot with my awesome new maternity shirt. This is my first maternity t-shirt, and besides it being really comfortable, it was super cute!
Baby Mama T-Shirt : Target
Make up was a mix of different drug store items
Hair: Went to bed with leave in conditioner in my hair, and then decided to use a wide toothed comb this morning just to comb it out.. and well, here it is 🙂
Layla Fiona, that is our beautiful bundle of joy that will be making her debut come April, 2016. This little girl is the reason why I decided to take part in a new business venture of blogging. Although I am a current amateur fashion blogger focusing on maternity, and pregnancy.. I believe this could be an awesome start to something new. When Layla arrives, the blog focus will change a bit to being about family, lifestyle and of course fashion with our little lady.
Origionally my close friends and family knew I was a bit upset because I wasn’t getting the “bump” that everyone else I knew was starting to get. They all told me to wait, it will just come over night… Well, they were right! Layla decided to just make an appearance randomly, when I least expected it and it made the wait that much more exciting. 🙂
Due to our little princess being on her way, I have been approached by some amazing maternity fashion apparel companies such as Pink Blush Maternity (huge maternity fashion apparel brand), that has decided to send me some awesome clothing to do a product review. After being contacted by them, I started to recieve more inquiries about product review and social media marketing for different apparel companies and accessories, which is why I decided to start blogging.
With all my love, I have to give thanks to this precious little one on her way, that has given me the opportunity to learn a little bit more about the bloggers world.
We look forward to meeting you, Miss Layla Fiona. xo
I have to say, I am very happy to see that so many of the ladies have decided to be happy with who they are and love the skin they are in despite the negativity around them. However, wearing your hair natural or with hair extensions is none of my business, and it shouldn’t be any one elses. I can wear my hair natural or with weave, and be perfectly happy either way. I don’t really give a hoot what anyone else may think of how I wear my hair, or if they believe you may have self esteem issues because you wear weave and not your natural hair. That’s not it at all.. I just like what I like, and I love to be versatile in my looks.
On another note.. When I do wear my weave, I only have one brand that I stick to, and believe in and have faith in their company… I am a true fan of Tresses by Kari ! Not only am I the Public Relations Brand Ambassador for Tresses by Kari, but I also have worn many other brands before and no one else has compared. I am a professional hair model for wig companies and hair salons, and I truly believe that Tresses by Kari is by far one of the best brands to date.
This brand is not like every other hair company that is looking to make a quick buck. This brand is celebrity endorsed, and helps out local talent as well by donating, and sponsoring pageant queens, models, singers, and more. Tresses by Kari has extremely soft hair that can last years thru washes, color dyes, and styling. I have used Tresses by Kari in all of my shoots, and pageant apperances and even the national stage when competing and months later, I am still able to use the same hair.
