Kate Spade Haul

My little family and I took a stroll through the Camarillo Outlets a few weeks ago. I didn't really have anything in mind that I wanted or needed. But of course, a few goodies can never hurt a girl, LOL. The minute I walked into Kate Spade I fell in love with their items. I brought home two handbags and two wallets.

Celebrate the Anchor in Your Life with Nautica and Macy's (Giveaway)

It’s been almost two weeks since my son came into this world and as joyous as I am to have become a mother, I have to admit that there are days when I feel overwhelmed with all the changes. Thankfully, I have the anchor in my life that not only keeps me grounded now, but also did during my pregnancy. From running to get me French fries at three in the morning, random trips to the ER, to dealing with my mood swings, my boyfriend endured it all and continues to do so.  I cannot imagine my life without him. He is such a great support and loves our son unconditionally. Having a hectic schedule doesn’t stop him from making time for us, and I appreciate it so much. Seeing him bond with our son melts my heart and I can’t wait to continue making memories with him as a family. I am beyond blessed to have a great man in my life that loves, nurtures, respects and makes my days brighter when I feel down with just one of his jokes. As an early Father’s Day gift I went into my local Macy's to purchase the Nautica Voyage gift set for my honey. The moment I tested the scent, I knew he would love its top notes of green leaf and crisp apple. Nautica created this fragrance for the man who is eager for his future and aggressively chases his dreams making it the perfect fragrance for him. The gift set is only $65 and includes: 3.4 oz Eau de Toilette, 2.5 oz Aftershave Balm, 2.5 oz Shower Gel, and 1 oz Eau de Toilette. You can’t beat that!
So how are you celebrating that special anchor in your life this Father's Day? I would love to read about how that father inspires you everyday. Now, thanks for Nautica one lucky reader will win a $4,000 cruise package and five second place winners will win a Nautica Men’s fragrance gift package. Good luck!!

My Maternity Photoshoot

My little one is expected to arrive on June 4th. So with only two weeks left before then, I decided it was more than time for me to book a maternity photoshoot. After doing a little research, I booked a session which took place at Manhattan Beach with Photography by Yaz. Regardless of all the difficulties I had with my pregnancy during my first and second trimester, I wouldn't change them for anything in this world. Maternity is such a beautiful stage and I am glad I was able to capture a glimpse of it through these photos.

So, for those that are suffering from the same issue, even if you're not pregnant, I want to share a few tips to help ease the itchy/dry skin. Lubriderm Daily Moisture Lotion Shea + Calming Lavender Jasmine

Summer Ready Feet #AmopeLovesMoms

As some of you know, I am expecting my first baby in June and being on my last five weeks, I have definitely put on some extra weight and my feet are definitely feeling it. Aside from the tiredness and a little bit of swelling, I have noticed my feet have become extra dry.Even after requesting extra services at the nail shop, I still have rough skin at the bottom of my feet. My feet definitely need some extra pampering lately not just to help me feel relaxed, but also to help my feet look and feel spring and summer ready. I want to make sure my feet are ready to rock beautiful open shoes. For this particular reason, I headed out to Target to look for the AmopĂ©™ Pedi Perfect™ Electronic Foot File since I had heard great reviews about it.

Review: Up & Up Concealer Duo Applicator

If you're looking for affordable and great makeup brushes, I highly  recommend purchasing from the Up & Up line at Target. I had been on the hunt for concealer brushes, so during a recent trip to Target, I purchased a concealer set for only $5.99!The brush handles are light-weight and the bristles are synthetic. I love that I can get different uses out of these two brushes. For example, I use the angled brush to apply an eye base or under-eye concealer. The other brush has a rounded shape making it perfect for around the nose and/or spot concealing. In fact, I have even used it to contour my nose. I love that I can use these brushes with either cream or powder concealer.
