Coloring My Hair at Home PLUS GIVEAWAY #ColorConfidently

This post was developed in partnership with Clairol Nice’n Easy, as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central.

When it comes to my son I'm on top of everything. I try to expose him to different activities and surroundings as much as I can. Now when it comes to myself, it's a different story. There have been times when I plan on starting a new activity or set up a challenge for myself but those never happen. Whether it be taking signing up for a photography class or taking a walk by myself, I tend to not let it happen mostly because I have to admit that it's a bit difficult to deviate from the norm. After reading and having talks with friends, I have to admit that there is nothing wrong with being a little selfish and doing things that I enjoy, alone.

A Day at the LA County Fair

Year after year, I've heard about the LA County Fair, its amazing food, and family fun. But it wasn't until last Sunday that I got the opportunity to attend the fair. The fair takes place in Pomona, Ca at the Fairplex grounds. Before hitting the road, I searched online to find the best deal. We ended up purchasing the tickets from Cardenas Market. The adult tickets were $12 and children, ages 6-12, were $6. Not bad considering that regular admission price is $20 for adults and $12 for children.LA COUNTY FAIR 2016

One Dollar Makeup Brush Cleaning Tool

When it comes to makeup, I love everything except having to clean makeup brushes - mostly because it's time-consuming. But whether I like it or not, it's something that must be done. Not only because it's hygienic, but also because it prevents skin problems such as acne. In the past, I've been guilty of not cleaning my makeup brushes as often as I should and boy did it bring problems to my skin. Now I clean my makeup brushes at least once a week. Up until last week, I was still using soap and the palm of my hand to clean my brushes because it's effective and inexpensive. That's until I discovered the Brushegg on Ebay for one dollar!

A Day Out with a Toddler #SuperAbsorbent

Motherhood is such a beautiful experience - very rewarding. But let's be real, there are days when things just don't seem to be going the right way. Fuzzy toddler, tantrums, forgotten items, you name it! Believe me, there have been days when I've had to get away for at least an hour in order to not go crazy. Now, don't get me wrong, I love being Nathaniel's mommy, I wouldn't change it for the world, but mommies need breaks too and there's nothing wrong with that. Now that Nathaniel is walking, he's officially a toddler wearing size 4 in Huggies Little Movers Plus. This means that he's all over the place and exploring every single thing that crosses his path. Out of all the adventures that Nathaniel and I come across, the most difficult is being out all day with him. So by trial and error, I've come up with my best tips to have a successful day out with your little one.

Toddler Food with Yummy Spoonfuls

I don't know if all toddlers are the same, but boy does Nathaniel love to eat. I try to make homemade meals every day for him, but there are days where I don't have the time. Nevertheless, I want to make sure he still eats tasty and nutritious meals. So I began to research for options. Not long into my search, I discovered  the Yummy Spoonful section in my local Target. I brought home three different flavors from stage 3 foods and guess what, Nathaniel loved all three flavors!   lentil & carrot yummy spoonfuls

Visiting Underwood Family Farms

I love Sundays because my family and I always try to go to different places where Nathaniel can explore. This past Sunday, we took him to Underwood Family Farms in Moorpark, Ca. The weather was perfect, sunny, but not extremely hot. The drive is about an hour away from where we live so we tried to get there early to avoid traffic. As we got there the first thing we did was check out the animal show. Nathaniel was very excited each time he saw a new animal come out. But I think his favorite was Billy the Alpaca. Sadly, I couldn't take pictures of Billy because I was busy carrying Nathaniel. After the show, we went out to the PYO fields.
