Carrot Mango Smoothie for radiant skin

You know those days when you don’t feel like having a big breakfast. A smoothie is an excellent choice for those days. Light, full of vitamins and a great way to get your daily serving of fruits and veggies. This carrot mango smoothie has been one of my favorites lately. It’s packed with beta-carotin which is an antioxidant, good for your skin and eyes. It also has lots of potassium, magnesium, and fiber. So really, really good stuff for you. I’m obsessed…

A look back at my first trimeste

As of today, I’m 22 weeks pregnant with our baby boy! In this post, I wanted to share everything that I experienced during my first trimester. When I was pregnant with Belle almost 8 years ago, we told people right away. So about a week or two after we found out I was pregnant, we shared the news. This time it was different. The only people we told right away was family and close friends. Then we waited until we…

Running Errands Outfit

Errands…uhh! Let’s just say it errands days are the worst. While I love crossing things off my to-do list running, a few errands can turn into a whole day thing. So the first thing about an errands day is choosing a comfy outfit. And although running errands means dressing comfy it does not mean that you have to spend the day in your yoga pants and an oversized sweater. No! Personally, I think yoga pants are to be worn at…

The Best Of Cyber Monday Sales

the best of cyber monday deals

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We had a small Thanksgiving with just our family. As in true Thanksgiving fashion, we stuffed ourselves with turkey, mashed potatoes & of course cranberry sauce on everything! Deciding on the desert was the most difficult part, because Belle doesn’t like pumpkin pie, and Gio doesn’t like pecan pie and I’m not a huge fan of either. Instead, we decided to stick with everyone’s favorite – homemade triple chocolate cake with coffee icing, and…
