Mom life

Mom life

Hello Ladies! How are you all doing?! Hopefully everyone is doing well. May is in full force and it’s a busy one. It’s the last month of school and the kids have a full load. A few exciting things happening in June. Breaker graduates from pre-school and my nephew graduates from high school. It’s crazy how fast it’s going. I feel like once you become a mom the years just fly by.

Talking about being a mom. I wanted to dedicate this blog post to Moms. Mother’s day is this weekend and us Moms need to celebrate us. Being a mom is the most beautiful thing and the hardest thing. And not to mention as we become mothers we also appreciate our own Moms more and more. And I find myself using a lot of what my mom told me on myself.

I’m not down with criticizing other Mother’s and I don’t think people should do that. I’m all about mom advice but only when it’s asked. Or if you’re giving it from the heart and not because you think you know better. I don’t think just because you have more kids you know more, You are just more experienced. But every child is different and only you as the mom know what’s best for your own child. My mom always taught us to never speak about others because you never know what you will face in the future. That sticks with me everyday. I don’t judge people on how they parent, because I’m still growing as a parent and my kids still need a lot of growing up to do. All  I can do is be there for them always and have supportive people around me. Not people who will judge me on my parenting.

Mom life has been challenging. But like you’ve heard before it’s the most rewarding. A mom is your safe haven no matter how old you are. When something goes wrong in my day, My mom is the first person I want to call. I think my boys feel the same way with me and that is the best feeling ever. I always tell my boys when you get older and move out what would be the one meal you want mommy to make when you come visit. I don’t know why that brings me so much joy. I love being a mom and I love being their mom.

So Cheers to all the moms, You are awesome and you are doing a great job!

Wishing my Mom, sisters, Grandma, Aunts, Cousins and friends You are all so beautiful and I love sharing that Mom life with you all.

The Day my two hearts met! And made my mommy heart that much bigger.

Mother’s Day gift guide

Mother’s Day gift guide

Hello Ladies! Hope you all are doing well. I’m great. We just moved my Mom back to LA. It’s so great to have my Mom back, It’s been a long 7 1/2 years with her being so far. She’s getting settled and the fact that Breaker and I can make easy visits during the week is awesome. Today’s post I thought it would be fun in honor of my mom being back, to give some ideas for the mom in your life. Your mom, Grandma, Aunt, sister, friend or that special lady that has been in your life like a mom. I have some ideas for all types of moms!

First  would be that fashionista mom in your life. This special lady likes to shop and dress with all the fun trends. She enjoys coffee with friends and a nice shopping day with no kids. You can’t go wrong with a gift card from her favorite store and a good old Starbucks gift card! She needs the energy to shop!

Second is the fit mom that loves a fun new workout class or just working out at home with her Sweat app. Loves a good walk or run in an open space. You can’t go wrong with some fun stylish cute sneakers. Don’t forget she needs some awesome tunes to listen to while she gets her workout in and in style with some rose gold beats. She’s going to need to stay in touch with the world so an apple watch is a must!

Third is the mom that needs a Break! Some of my favorite things is taking a long shower, wash my hair and give my face a nice wash, exfoliate and mask. In a nice robe to just pamper yourself after a long day being Mom. Summer Fridays has the best pampering mask and not to mention they are pretty to gift. Every girl needs a cute robe to pamper yourself in.

Last are two that I actually love, Being a mom and busy with dropping off kids and running errands, I mean sometimes we don’t shower first thing in the morning. So a nice everyday perfume to make you smell delicious is a must.The BFF KKW one is actually my favorite at the moment.  And my all time favorite Mom bag is the Neverfull MM Bag. It’s the best bag for a mom. It’s literally NEVERFULL.

Well Ladies and Gentlemen I hope this was helpful and you get that special lady in your life something she deserves to make her feel loved. Till next post.

Long and flirty dresses

Long and flirty dresses

Hello beauties! A week flew by so fast. I don’t know about you all but the time is on warp speed. I remember as a kid a week would feel like an eternity. As an adult geez, It’s like slow down I still have things to do. We’ve been busy so far this month. It’s a fun-filled month of family things. I really cherish family time. We have my uncles who is also my godfather(AKA Nino) his 60th birthday party and Mother’s day. So a very nice family filled weekend.

Today’s post is a long flirty dress look. I wanted to show you a possible Mother’s day outfit or just a fun spring look when you’re feeling extra flirty. I love long flowy dresses. I mean who doesn’t want to look cute and feel comfortable at the same time.

This dress I went with leopard print. I love leopard print but don’t wear it as much. When I saw this dress I knew I had to have it. I can wear it with sandals or heels to dress it up a little more. I can add a jean jacket to give it a casual look or a moto jacket to give it a more edgy look. This material is so soft and the cut is perfect. I purchased this dress from Zara it was a great price too. Another look I’m really liking is long girly dresses with sneakers. I think that look is perfect for mom’s running after little ones.

I also found these that are super cute and you can make them dressy or casual. Also from Zara!  These kind of dresses are also perfect for trips. Less packing when you don’t have to pack top and bottoms. I know dresses will be on my packing list for sure. So easy and not so much thought. I’ve really got into making more time for me to get ready. I’m enjoying getting dressed up and just having more fun with style. Remember if you feel good about yourself life just seems a little easier. And taking time to fix yourself up a little more is a good step towards that.

A special note to all my Mamas out there. Happy Mother’s day! Being a Mom is so rewarding but also tough. We are very hard on ourselves and don’t give ourselves the credit we deserve. We are all doing a great job the way we know what’s best for Our kids. So every mom is unique and that’s what makes us all so special.

Hope you all enjoyed this post! and maybe some ideas to wear for Mother’s day! Till next post!
