    Toddler Capsule Wardrobe | Fall + Winter 2018

    Fall and Winter in South Florida are not nearly as cozy as I would like them to be, but at some point, it does cool down. So until then, I’m going to start working on our capsule wardrobes for the upcoming seasons. Last Fall Liam was about five months old and we spent a lot of our free time taking him on walks. Back then it was simple. We would keep him in his sleep n’ plays all day and wear him in the carrier. No fussing with layers or big kid clothes. However, this year we can barely hold him still for a second. He has become a wildly…

    Nexplanon | An Updated Birth Control Review

    About eight months ago I shared a review on Nexplanon. In that review, I spoke about the insertion procedure, some of the side effects I experienced, and how well it was working for me. I made it clear that it was not the best or safest form of birth control, but that it was the best choice for me at the time. Today I wanted to provide you with a better-detailed review based on my research and experience. A few months ago I had the Nexplanon removed and I am so happy I did. So if you are thinking about birth control and are looking into this arm implant, keep…

    Finding Your Self-Identity In Motherhood

    Did you lose your self-identity after becoming a mother? I know I did. I was so focused on being a perfect mom and a perfect wife and a perfect everything for everyone that in the process, I lost sight of who I was. Not to say that I knew my purpose before motherhood, but I was a little selfish and felt more in tune with my desires. It’s sort of bittersweet this motherhood thing. I mean, becoming a mom to my sweet boy has been the greatest blessing and has made me mature and become very selfless and responsible, but after a year of joy, struggles, and so many new…

    On My Life’s Purpose

    What is your life’s’ purpose? I thought that as a mom, my purpose was TO BE A MOM. The past few days have taught me that even though I enjoy being a mom, it is not my life’s purpose. I mean, am I the only one that feels that way? With all of the mommy instagramers and bloggers out there, it almost feels like mothering HAS to be a mothers’ purpose. Don’t get me wrong, I love so many of these women who are slaying the social media game and creating incredible content and making a living doing what they love. I love them so much that for a long…

    In this day and age, we are constantly bombarded with innovative products that promise to simplify our lives. This is especially true in the baby industry.

    How To Get Your Baby To Sleep Anywhere | Sleep After Baby

    With its lightweight features, the Dock-A-Tot can be one of the simplest baby products to take with you anywhere you go. From the bedroom to the living room to a tropical island in the Caribbean. I waited until my son was five months old to purchase the DockATot even though I had my eye on it from the moment I found out I was pregnant. I finally got it when we were struggling to get him to stay asleep for longer than two to three hours. The first night my son slept in it, he slept for FIVE uninterrupted hours and with time he began sleeping for longer periods. His…
