Road Trip with a Baby/Toddler #RoadTripOil

In a few weeks my family and I will be going on a road trip and although it won't be the first time we will bring Nathaniel along, it will be his first long road trip so I want to make sure that I prepare very well. This year we will be heading to Houston to visit family. Traveling can sometimes take a toll on adults let alone kids/babies/toddlers. So it's quite important that I pack wisely and plan ahead of time. Based on our navigation system it should take us 24 plus hours to reach out destination. I like to put things in the car the night before heading out - it makes things less hectic the next day. If you'll be traveling this summer with little ones, these are some of my tips.

Nathaniel's First Outfit Post

I've been wanting to share Nathaniel's outfits with you all, but for some reason, I kept holding off. Today, however, I've decided to share with you his first outfit post. This is what he wore for Fourth of July. Summer means hot days so he pretty much lives in shorts every day.

My at Home Nail Care and Tips #SallyStrong

Nails care is more than just a weekly manicure and pretty nail polish. Nail care starts with  part of the body that we often don't see as important as others. I know I am guilty of thinking that way. Often times, we just see nails as that, nails and in return, we neglect them, but it shouldn't be that way. For that reason, I want to share with you a few tips on how I care of my nails. #SallyStrong
Eat a Balanced Diet: Everything starts within and eating healthy is the key to everything including beautiful strong nails. Food high in calcium will help to avoid discoloration and chipping.

A Day at Kern River #CYBEXDesign

This post was sponsored by CYBEX as part of an Ambassador Program for Influence Central. I received the CYBEX Balios Stroller and Aton Q Infant Car Seat to facilitate my review.

Family outings are one of my favorite things to do. Especially with this warm weather, there's nothing better than enjoying a nice day out with the family. The weather has been hot lately so we decided to head out to the Kern River for our last family outing. Our entire family enjoyed the day out swimming and eating carne asada next to the river. If you've been to the lake or river with family, you know that it's necessary to carry a lot of items. But of course, the fewer things you have to carry, the better.

Skincare with Aixallia #Aixallia

This post was sponsored by Aixalliaas part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentaryproducts to facilitate my review.
A few weeks back I noticed my skin was breaking out and I didn't know why. I wasn't using dirty brushes nor was I using any new products. I then realized that perhaps it was that my skin needed a change. Perhaps it was getting irritated with the products I was using. For some reason, our skin sometimes starts acting up and no longer wants the products we use. So I switched up my skincare routine. I decided to try a skincare line that I had in a stash of products that I've recently received lately. It's the Aixallia skincare line that comes straight from the south of France.

At nights, before bed, I enjoy a nice warm shower and then take care of my skin, but for for this post, I want to just show you guys how I apply the products. So we will skip the shower. I start out with the makeup remover. As you can see I had quite a decent amount of makeup. Using a soft paper towel, I soaked it with the Five Plants Emulsifying Make-up Remover.

Night-Time Routine #QueenoftheSouth

One of my favorite things to do once Nathaniel falls asleep, if I don't have other important things to do, is watch tv shows or movies with my honey. I was recently chosen for an opportunity to watch the first episode of Queen of the South starring Alice Braga. My honey and I are huge fans of narco tv shows and movies so as soon as I knew I had get the opportunity to watch the first episode before it even aired,  I knew he was going to be happy. I made sure to watch the episode as soon as I finished my night-time skincare routine.

How I Make My Life Easier #EssentialVitamins

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #EssentialVitamins #CollectiveBias

During the first two months of becoming a mom, I wasn't able to manage my time well. I was struggling with taking care of different tasks around the house. Even taking a shower seemed like such a difficult task each day. It's quite easy to get caught up in the daily grind of being a mom that we (mommies) can often forget about ourselves. Whether it be something as simple as taking your vitamins or sitting down to enjoy your meal. We should be able to have some "me time". As time progressed, I was able to manage my time more efficiently by changing things up a notch. Here is my list of how I am able to manage my time and take care of my baby too.#EssentialVitamins
