Update

Hi Ladies,

It’s October! Can you believe it? That means sweater weather, fall hair styles, darker hair, smokey eyes, leggings and boots. Oh, and let’s not forget pumpkin everything, and hot chocolate! Okay, so, maybe the boots and sweaters not so much here in South Florida, but I will be the 1% who you see trying. I will undoubtedly melt in the sun, but still.

Life is going pretty amazing, and I couldn’t be happier. I have a beautiful family and a blessed life. What could be better?

Since he’s so darn adorable, I’m here to bless you with a few more updated pictures of my sweet baby boy, who is now 7.5 months old! Time is flying right in by. He is getting 3 teeth at once, sits on his own, is trying to crawl and makes life 100 times better just by his gorgeous face smiling at me every morning. There’s nobody better to fall asleep hugging and holding, or to wake  than this little guy!

A Long Time Coming

Hello, ladies!

It has been such a long time since I have written a post – since last July, I believe! I thought I had written a post detailing the fact that I would be on hiatus for a while due to the fact that I had some exciting news – I was pregnant! I wanted to spend all of my time focusing on my pregnancy, and enjoy every minute of it. And that’s exactly what I did. ☺

My baby boy was born February 16th, 7 weeks earlier than expected. He spent a month in the NICU at one of the best hospitals in the area, in a level 3 room – the area of the NICU where the babies require the most critical care. He made leaps and bounds in a very short amount of time, and after 3 weeks, he was transferred to a level 2 NICU and spent about a week and a half there. My baby boy underwent many rigorous, painful tests, multiple IV placements all over his tiny body every day, breathing treatments with a CPAP machine, was hooked and is still hooked to monitors to track bradycardia episodes – a dip in his heart rate. He is doing fabulous at this point, though, and is growing stronger every day.

He has been home for about 3 weeks, and he has been such a blessing in our lives. I can’t imagine my life without him in it at this point. I am obsessed and in love with my sweet baby.

Meet Richard III!

This was right after he was born. As you can see, he was pretty bad off. It was heart wrenching to see him this way.

 

This is my sweet, beautiful baby boy now:

He is now 11 lbs and growing strong!

 

I look forward to posting occasionally, and I hope to hear from you ladies in some comments! Xo Much love!

 

Stitch Fix – My New Fashion Bundle Obsession

Hi Ladies!
Today, I want to tell you about Stitch Fix, a brand new concept in fashion. Have you ever wanted to have your own personal stylist, but never thought you’d be able to afford it? Do you lead a busy lifestyle, and are unable to go out and shop as often as you’d like to? I think I’ve found what we’ve all been looking for in that regard.

Meet Stitch Fix, the personal styling team that caters to you at an affordable price – and you will always receive a variety of clothing items to choose from that you will most likely love!

The concept behind the service is simple:

You complete a style profile, letting the team know your true personal style, stats, measurements, and the other items aside from clothing you’d be interested in. You schedule a date to receive a shipment. Once you schedule your shipment, you will need to pay a $20 styling fee. The $20 is then applied as a credit towards whatever items you choose to keep from your box. From there, a bundle box is dispatched out to you with items your personal stylist has chosen for you, and the shipment will usually contain 5 items. From there, you will choose what to keep and what to send back within a 3 day time frame. Shipping items you don’t want back is free, as a pre-paid return sticker is included with your shipment. Only pay for what you keep, and send the rest back!

You can schedule shipments as often as you like – or even once every 3 months. It’s completely up to you!

Items your stylist may send out in a shipment to you are as follows:

Shirts/tops/blouses

Jeans

Shorts

Skirts

Dresses

Purses

Jackets

Scarves

Jewelry

and so much more. They are always adding new items into their arsenal, and work with a lot of indie and up and coming brands to bring you styles nobody else you know will be wearing. To me, I think that’s pretty awesome!

Most items cost about $50 each, but you can choose the ‘least expensive’ option, which will get you finds for any price range below that. There is a lot to choose from.

They offer sizes available from XS (0)- XL (14)! Petite sizes are also available as well.

If you’re interested in checking them out and signing up for the service, click here to find out more. I am literally obsessed with this site, and can’t wait to receive my first shipment in August!

Do yourself a favor, and check them out!

Summer Hairstyle Files: 2 Minute Headband Chignon for Chin Length Hair

2 Minute Headband Chignon

Today, I am going to be demonstrating how simple and easy the headband chignon truly is to achieve. One day this past week, I was thinking of a new way to fix my hair that I hadn’t yet tried before – and it hit me. The headband chignon became my mission, and I figured I would give the style a try and see if I loved it as much on me as I did on other people. I’m glad to say I totally love the style, and I will definitely be wearing it many more times this summer.
