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

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

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.

My 33 Week 4D Ultrasound

From the moment I knew I was pregnant, I couldn't wait to have my first ultrasound to take a little peek at my little one. But as we all know, those regular 2d ultrasound aren't as clear as we would like them to be. So, I was anxious to schedule an appointment for a 4d ultrasound once my baby got closer to being fully developed. At last, yesterday,33 weeks,  I went into My Baby 4D in Glendale, Ca for the ultrasound.

My Trip to Hawaii #WaikikiTrip #Oahu

For my birthday which was this past March, my boyfriend and I decided to take a vacation to Hawaii. We opted to visit the island of Oahu since it's the most popular island. Waikiki is such a beautiful place - I fell in love! We were there for only four days, so we wanted to do as much activities as we could.
