Updated Favorite Baby Products

I haven’t written one of my baby lists in a while and as my baby is turning one in a few days, I began to look around and make a mental list of all my #1 baby products that I would go to directly for my next baby. If there will be one… So let me dive right in!

  1. Dr. Brown’s Options Narrow Feeding Set, clear– These bottles are my holy grail!! The straw in them helps to reduce air bubbles and makes the whole feeding process smoother. It is a little more to clean but so worth it.
  2. Dr. Brown’s One Piece Silicone Pacifier, 0m+, Blue, 3 Pack– If you are going to use pacifiers there are so many ones out there to choose from and every baby is different but these work like a dream for me. It is shaped just like the bottle nipple so it just works so well. You can easily go from bottle to paci with no crying in between.
  3. Gerber Good Start Gentle Non-GMO Powder Infant Formula, Stage 1, 23.2 Ounce (Pack of 6)– If you are choosing to use formula or if you aren’t able to breastfeed for as long as you would like, as in my case, you will need to pick out a formula. I did a ton of research and compared ingredients and prices amongst many different brands and decided to use gerber myself. It worked so well for my son but of course every baby is different.
  4. Baby Dove Tip to Toes– This is the BEST baby wash! Super gentle and smells so good. I found that some washes could be a little drying but this one is amazing! I would definitely recommend to everyone!
  5. Eucerin Baby Eczema Relief Body Creme 5.0 Ounce – If your baby ever gets dry patches, look no further. They don’t have to have eczema to use this body creme. It really is amazing and you will notice a difference so quickly!
  6. Desitin Baby Diaper Rash Maximum Strength Original Paste, 4 Oz Tube– Eventually every baby needs a little diaper rash cream and desitin is my personal go to. It can be used for more than just red bums, I’ve used it in little mans neck where it would get a little raw from drool. It can be a full time job just trying to keep babies dry.
  7. HUGGIES Little Snugglers Baby Diapers, Size 1, 216 Count– I mean… You have to diaper your baby.. I like huggies and after trying pampers and honest brand, I personally just can’t use any other brand but huggies. They are my favorite!
  8. Fisher-Price Deluxe Bouncer, Soothing Savanna– Having a little chair like this one while little man was small was a life saver. I would definitely recommend investing in a bouncer chair.
  9. Lansinoh Lanolin for Breastfeeding Mothers, 1.41 Ounce (Pack of 2)– Lastly I had to add this for my breastfeeding mamas. This stuff beats anything out there for saving your nips and I even use it for saving chapped lips!!! It seriously can’t be beat!!

That is all my tops at the moment. I know there are lots more but things like cribs and rockers are going to be up to your personal style. I am sure I will do more of these. Please let me know in the comments if you like these types of lists!

Bath Time Troubles

I have recently made a discovery that should have been super obvious but it wasn’t until it happened to me and my family! While going through our normal night time routine of giving baby K a bath I realized that some of his bath toys were dark inside. They were growing mold!!!! GROSS! One squeeze of our bathtime basket balls and black gross-ness was in the bath water. I quickly removed the toys and drained the water. This is when I decided that there will be no more bath toys with holes in them.. which is surprising a lot to ask for.

Most bath toys I found were squeeze toys that squirt water. Knowing that I wasn’t just going to keep buying bath toys that could grow mold on the inside and that are very difficult to clean, I kept searching. I finally found a set of plastic boats that can’t hold on to moisture at walmart and found rubber duckies at target that don’t have a pesky hole in the bottom!

Moms make sure you are checking bath toys for mold and drying toys out if they do have holes!!

Be back tomorrow friends! Hope your October is rocking so far!!!

September Goals

This months goals I want to keep similar to August.

  • Keep working on myself. Not let things bother me and not get upset over things I “think” but haven’t or aren’t going to happen.
  • Stay consistent and keep growing my blog/social medias. I have been doing so good but every once in a while I get distracted and I need to continue working really hard.
  • Focus on being healthy and making healthy choices and being active. Not solely focused on losing weight.
  • Be more organized. I keep everyone one else in my house organized and I stay organized with homework but my room and my spaces in the house need revamped

I think this is actually kind of a lot to stay up on for this month but I know I can do it!!

What are your goals this month?

August Goals

I have seen a few of my fellow bloggers write post like this and I thought it was a great idea. Keep me more aware and oriented on accomplishing some goals whether big or small.

  1. Continue blogging regularly, coming up with ideas and creating content. Consistency is key with just about everything.
  2. Work out at least 5 times a week for 30 minutes. Continue to eat better and continue my health journey.
  3. Be better about accessorizing and dressing. Most days I find myself never getting out of my PJ’s just to shower and get back into new PJ’s. But I stay home most of the time. I have tons of clothes and jewelry and they deserve as much love as my makeup gets.. or at least close lol
  4. Be less crazy… this would take a lot of explaining but I let little things bother me and I am actively working on changing my thought process on things.
  5. Try to film and take pictures more often. Blogging and being very active on social media can be a lot of work but it also can be fun and is necessary if you want to continue to grow!

Alright I am ready to tackle August! I am feeling good and am super motivated to accomplish goals!

What are y’alls goals??

Till next time

Fun Summer Fashion!

Hello lovelies! I thought I would do a little bit different post about fashion! Something I normally don’t get too in to because being a stay at home mom I live in yoga pants and comfy tank tops. This way I am always comfortable and never to upset when I am spit up on or food gets thrown or just the general buckets of slobber. Anyways I do like to get dressed every once in a while and not just for youtube. So I have been searching for some super cute, stylish pieces that are affordable! I want to get the most bang for my buck. I also have been thinking about pieces I can wear on my honeymoon. Who doesn’t want to look amazing during a week in paradise?!

If you have never heard of Zaful, go check them out! I will leave them linked below.

Here are a few things that I have recently been checking out and purchasing! I love fun patterns and off the shoulder detail. While on an island, beach, or here in the super hot heat I want flowy clothing that is cool and comfortable. Even if I am going to a fancy event I have to be comfortable or else I can’t enjoy myself. These are some fun pieces that I can dress up or wear casual day or night!

How cute are these two dresses?! Click them to see so much more cute pieces! They also have tons of accessories and shoes and even makeup brushes!

I also recently took a chance and tried my luck ordering some bathing suits from walmart! I am obsessed with with swim wear, I probably buy swim almost as much as I buy makeup or skin care.

These are the two I ordered.. my attempt at a mom suit but still cute and fun! I am not sure about the one piece, I have lately wanted to attempt to wear one but unfortunately I have had to return every one I get because they are not long enough for my torso.. even if I order it big!

What are you guys currently loving? Where do you shop and find good deals? Let me know!!

Full Disclosure: I am an affiliate with Zaful. I asked to work with them after ordering and loving the amazing pieces and deals I was getting. I only do affiliate programs with companies I believe in and use myself. All opinions are 100% honest.

Monthly Wish List

Okay so I don’t have a huge list this month because if you watched my last Video (click!!) you would see the huge haul I had and all the goodies I purchased for myself! Anyways as you will see in a blog going up this weekend, I have also purchased some clothing which I will do a look book on or something similar! Okay so moving on! Here is my wish list with a little description of what they are.

Transform your favorite moisturizer into a BB, CC or fuller-coverage foundation. One drop of Clinique BIY Blend It Yourself Pigment Drops creates sheer cover. Two or three, a flawless finish. Since Clinique BIY takes on the finish of the moisturizer you blend it with, expect a more matte finish with a mattifying moisturizer. Or a more dewy, radiant finish when blended with a moisturizer that contains optics. All skin types.Screen Shot 2017-06-20 at 2.33.00 PM

Enjoy an at home spa treatment using this Eco Tools Dry Body Brush (with cruelty-free synthetic bristles) for beauty you can feel good about! Inspired by spa dry brushing treatments, used to exfoliate and detoxify, improving appearance and leaving skin soft, smooth and glowing.

What are yall wanting this month??
